Pictures originally taken 2/1/21 (playing catch up!)
Words written on Instagram on the day I posted…
I took a few months off from taking pics and posting on here…
More to follow after the pics…
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.

Keeping it Real…
Behind the scenes video (click here for Instagram link) where I hadn’t hooked the remote up properly 🤣 Clearly out of practice…🙈 BUT…hear that rain?! Yes, it was raining as I took these! I kept waiting for it to stop…it didn’t.
