Back when…if it was raining…I still got dressed!

Honestly, I barely had the mental bandwidth to get through the day sometimes, much less get dressed in something other than sweats.
🙈
The funny thing is that getting dressed for me is a total mood booster! Yet, I just couldn’t do it….
😕
SO thankful for @TheMomEdit and their #TMEStyleCHallenge 🙏🏻 I feel like they always do these RIGHT when I need them! The minute they announced it, I felt myself getting excited. I started brainstorming outfits, which may seem trivial, but for me…it’s just FUN!
🤗
Today is the first day, and it was “Layer a House Dress”.
🤔
First off….what IS a house dress? Well….ever so helpful google says-
😆
“A house dress is a type of simple dress worn informally at home for household chores or for quick errands.”

I’m not going on errands, but I wore it to Instacart my Costco groceries today!
💃
I added a long duster sweater (basically a robe!), a vintage belt, some leather leggings, and fun booties.

Promptly lost the belt, leggings, and shoes right after I shot these, and am now back in my super comfy house dress.
🤣
The challenge goes on for the entirety of February. Who wants to join me??! I’m hoping I can convince Maya to do a few with me 🥰
👯‍♀️
Tomorrow is “Mix Prints”

Editing to add in real time (currently as I’m catching up…3/25/2022-I have a YEAR to catch up on!)  I sooo miss getting dressed.  I honestly miss taking a shower every day (I know…GROSS, but…I can’t be bothered the last 10 months-SPOILER).  I’ll share soon why-If you follow us on Instagram, you know….  Not sure why I think I need to catch up on fashion posts before I share….so..maybe I won’t!  BUT…I will, because, I need things to be in order!  Especially as I look back on this, AS I WILL!!  AND, as I. hope Maya will.
