What I Wore: Neutral Play


This is what I wore most of yesterday. I liked the play of different textures and neutral tones, and I like how these pictures turned out. I do not like the fact that about 3 hours after I took these, I was being plagued by a sort throat, increasingly stuffy head, and all the signs of impending sickdom. The lace shirt and sash and necklace got traded out for an old comfy sweatshirt. Much tea and Airborne were drunk. To no avail. Today I am in the full grip of the first cold of the winter, and I’m not liking it one bit.

Sidenote: Today was one of my workout days. Obviously that is not going to happen. But are there people out there who still work out while they’re sick? Because they’re crazy. If I tried to lift one of my handweights right now I’d probably fall over. My arms feel like noodles just thinking about plank position.

Luckily work is still pretty light right now. I’ve got one minor thing to get done today, and then I can veg out with a blanket and kleenex and Netflix.

How are you doing? Hopefully healthier than me. Tell me something good that’s happened to you lately!






Colors: All neutrals, all the time.

Dress: from Langford Market
Shirt: from Express

  1. I hope you are feeling better soon.. stopping by from pleatedpoppy link up.. Something good that has happened to me recently is that I have come to realize that I have a great life that I should cherish and not flounder on the small bumps on road..a revelation indeed..

    1. Thanks! I’m still not 100%, but definitely feeling better.

      That’s a good realization! Small bumps will happen, but you shouldn’t let them thrown you. They’re just that: small bumps. 🙂

  2. I love the lace top!! But ugh, sorry that you aren’t feeling great! I had my first cold of the season a few weeks ago–I’m hoping to stay healthy from here on out…and no, I don’t work out when I’m sick!

    1. Thanks! I’m finally feeling a bit better today. Still not going to be up for exercise for a few days, though – I don’t get how people do that! When I’m sick, just standing up long enough to take a shower is exhausting.
