Whew. It looks like we’ll be continuing to hunker down at home for the foreseeable future. So focusing on the positive, I’m glad we held off going out to eat or doing any in-person shopping beyond twice-weekly grocery runs. That we have avoided crowds. And that (knock wood) we remain healthy.
We’re very fortunate: I work from home, le Monsieur is (now) retired, and we have a lovely yard where we can spend time when we need to get out of the house. I don’t forget for a minute how much we have to be grateful for.
Even staying at home, I feel better if I’m dressed. That usually means street clothes, a couple pieces of casual jewelry, and maybe a little makeup and fragrance. But it all has to be comfortable.
The weather pattern known as “June gloom” has hung on, so I’ve been getting a few more weeks’ wear from my lightweight sweaters. This one is a cotton-linen blend, and comfortable in fluctuating temperatures, so I can wear it all day. It’s a roomy cut; if you want a more fitted look, I’d advise sizing down.
While I don’t want to live in sweats, I also can’t bear to wear anything stiff or constricting. Jeans are my go-to, but they have to have some ease and stretch, which these do.
Both the necklace and earrings were purchased on our first trip to Venice in 2011. I recently re-discovered the necklace during a closet re-organization, and can’t believe I’ve let it languish unworn for so long!
How are you balancing comfort and style these days?
