UNIFORM / HOLIDAY BLUES

uniform to beat the holiday blues

I know the holidays were almost two weeks ago but those blues that come afterwards, I still got them. Maybe because it was an especially great holiday season, or it was so so cold the week that followed but I just haven’t been able to get fully back in the swing of things. This week, will zap me back (I’m counting on it) – sometimes I need one bad day (or week) after a holiday and then things are back and better then ever. Sometimes dressing comfy, but not too comfy helps me ease back into days that aren’t filled with 24 hours of relaxing – but let’s be honest, this is an outfit I would wear everyday (bluesy or not)  if I could. Do you still have a mild case of the blues? What do you do to snap yourself out of those slow low energy days (other then coffee and more coffee)?



UNIFORM / LAST MINUTE SHOPPER

1.Extra on the comfort, Dress  2.Hide that messy hair, Toque  3.Keep warm, Scarf  4.Don’t freeze your toes, Socks  5.You’ll probably need an extra layer, Hoodie  6.Don’t freeze your buns off, Coat  7.OMG I want these, Boots.

I name each outfit, to give it a purpose – but in all honesty they are all daily uniform attire (hence the obvious name, uniform). The only thing with this bad boy is I wouldn’t wear it when it’s below zero, actually that’s a lie I would but I would do some major running between locations. If I was the procrastinating type (I am) and I still had some Christmas shopping left to do (I do), I would probably plan a lunch (maybe with a friend who is also a last minute shopper) – and then I would totally wear this.

UNIFORM / HOLIDAY PARTY

Tis pretty much the season for holiday party invites or maybe a holiday night out with friends or a date with the main squeeze? Since I don’t work in a office anymore, and the husband’s work party is usually employees only – the holiday parties have sort of become non existent for me. This is very okay and instead I like to sometimes over dress for a night out / a night in with friends (or a date with my husband date) during the holiday season.

Two outfits I would wear (and really want to wear) to a holiday party / a holiday night out – of course filled with items that would become staples in my dream wardrobe afterwards (okay maybe not the heels, but I would try).

It’s getting chilly out there so layers are where it’s at. Also boots with a tiny bit of (comfortable) height to them are great when it’s a tad chillier then fall temps but not quite winter boot season – they just lift your foot that much further from the cold concrete. Add a toque (hey, I’m Canadian) to hide that wind blown (or bed headed) hair, some sleek gloves, a comfortable pair of (hide most everything) high waisted skinnies and you are good to go, for anything the day might bring.  Happy Monday! It’s Remembrance Day in Canada, a day we all give extra thanks to those brave ones who have fought and continue to fight for our country – lest we forget.
