Thursday Outfit: From Lou & Grey

Jun 4, 2020

How are you doing?  For real.  Take a minute to think about how your mind and heart are right now.  2020 has been a real mind melt, and if you never stop to ask yourself how you’re doing, you won’t start caring for yourself until the situation is dire.

In my own life, everything is off balance this week.  I have no routine, no structure, no peace.  And it seems stupid to say it, but one of the few things I can control right now is what I wear, and being able to choose to wear comfortable, pretty things is offering me a little solace.

Obviously, there are far deeper, more pressing issues at hand.  But this is a fashion blog, so whatever comfort we can take from our attire, let’ snatch it up.

At the start of the pandemic, I spent a weekend purging my closet.  And I gave away and sold a lot of pieces that didn’t fit me anymore or weren’t getting worn.  So now, I’m trying to replace them with pieces that will.

Enter, Lou & Grey.  I basically want to replace my entire wardrobe with their new arrivals section.  But here’s a work from home outfit that would keep me comfortable and warm in my chilly home office.

Small Hoop Earrings

Marlknit Cropped Wrap Sweater

Ribbed Maxi Dress

Inne Linen Slides

    I connected so deeply to this: “…if you never stop to ask yourself how you’re doing, you won’t start caring for yourself until the situation is dire.” I sought out psychotherapy and much-needed medication only after my own situation became dire, and I wish I had heard (and followed) your advice many years ago.

    Also, since this is indeed a fashion blog, I have to chime in to say that the gold hoop earrings are just what I’ve been looking for.

    Thank you!

Shoe Week: One Last Summer Shoe

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions. Her response: “Typical.”
