I'm going to be honest with you. I was in a real funk when I took these. Hehe. I just was not enthusiastic about being awake or even about being alive for that matter. It was just one of those days where I was utterly wracked with ambivalence. So, naturally, my outfit is reflective of my feelings, i.e. pretty dark
and grim. Just a lot of blacks and grey with some hints of gold, because you know what they say:
Every dark cloud has a..well..in this case..gold lining. ;P
I felt very in touch with my inner Janus, so I tried to capture those feelings here, i.e. jubilant one moment and somber the next. This actually turned out to be kind of a cathartic exercise.
Anyway, I didn't get dressed up to stay at home and feel sorry for myself. Hehe. I was still determined to make the most of the day. I wore my kick ass black zipper jacket and comfy panda sweater, then sealed the deal with a lightweight purple scarf. I'm also wearing my tried and true black Chicwish high-low skirt. I'm glad I decided to pay a bit extra for it. The quality is fantastic and the length is perfect.
Underneath that lies my golden, glittery suspender tights and my short black boots which I have come to love so much and wear quite often. I also carried my braided black fringe purse from Chicnova and wore a gold filigree collar necklace and gold studded wrap watch, both of which are from TIL Darling.
Don't worry! By now I've weathered the storm and I'm back to normal. I think it's natural to experience such ups and downs, even when there is apparently no reason for it. It gives me a chance to be a little more introspective and investigate my own thoughts and feelings so I can better understand myself. :P
How about you? What do you do when apathy hits you like a ton of bricks?
How do you dig yourself out of an emotional rut?
