This is from Thursday last week. That cold never went away and after dragging myself into work on Monday to Wednesday then having to go home exhausted halfway through the afternoon, I decided to just stay at home and get better. And it worked, thank goodness!
Obviously I wasn’t really planning on taking an outfit photo on a sick day, but this is how it came about: On Tuesday, Ashe of Dramatis Personae posted about about how some of her friends who wear maxi skirts, little make up and wear their hair in buns automatically classed as people from a hardline christian sect (Is this a fair enough description? I just don’t know what any of these specific types of Christianity mean, and am hoping not to offend anyone by misunderstanding what their religion is about). I highly recommend that you go and check out the post and the discussion in the comments.
But to get back to my outfit: this reminded me that my sister had given me this long denim skirt a while ago, but after stalking my flickr and realising I rarely wear it, she wants it back, and I am returning it at Christmas. So I though I would wear it one last time. And then after I had got dressed for warmth (still minus 12 degrees at this point), I realised I had accidentally gone for a festive colour scheme and my clothes actually looked quite nice. So I added the christmas bracelet and went and took photos. I couldn’t quite be bothered with make up, so puffy red eyes and slightly rudolphy nose it is!
