#tuesdaytip Dungarees: the stay-at-home wardrobe staple 👌(/ my staple, lockdown or not 🤣) Not just comfy beyond belief but also super versatile 💚 Check out my Stories for inspo to make them feel more work-y...try switching out a tee for a Zoom-worthy blouse or knitwear 💻 All the comfort whilst feeling a little more conference-call chic 💃🏻
The theme we decided on for this evening’s #dopaminedressing was ‘Men In Black’ (well ‘Women’ would be more appropriate but as Emma Thompson says in the movie “Don’t get me started”).
I know we haven’t posted in a few days but Gwen was on PM shifts at the hospital and this is something we enjoy doing as a family. We were very short on black suits and ties so Jess and I decided to be ‘the scum of the universe’ and rather than spend hours applying makeup I decided I’d just ‘fix it in post’. #meninblack#mibinternational#dressups#fancy#fancydress#covid19#selfisolation#stayathome#makeyourownfun
I'm in awe of people who are spending their time in isolation tidying. I'm more in the headspace of thinking if we aren't having visitors for months there is no one to see the mess. But I felt the urge to keep up a semblance of caring about outside appearances so thought sweeping the steps would distract anyone from the chaos going on inside.
By 'anyone' I mean Weef who finds my piles of clothes and books an irritating habit. Oh well we are all having to be a bit more relaxed about life right now aren't we?
Anyways, back to why I'm sweeping the front step in a long black tulle skirt, my beloved sheer Celia Birtwell blouse and leopard print heels. Well why not make every day a performance? Why not do #wearingwellbeing in whatever way makes you happy. I'm feeling very Hollywood Housewife today. And in lieu of a real dance partner my broom-dream-boy will have to suffice.
let's face the music and dance my darlings...there has never been a better time to let go of the rule book and be your most authentic self. I'm particularly enjoying the freedom to be my best self every day unencumbered by the external rules that society imposes...I'm happy to stick to the health rules but have no intention of giving up my way of doing me.
Why don't you put on your tulle today and be the star in your own home movie? 🎶They can't take that away from you🎶
Huge thanks to Dolly for this week's wearing wellbeing inspirational themes.
