My colleague Lindsay Miller wrote about getting dressed during this time of social distancing, and her essay made me wonder if the clothes in my own closet could potentially make me feel better or change my mood.
The spread of coronavirus is top of mind, prodding and jabbing at every somewhat normal thought I have, turning my mood upside down just when I finally start to feel uplifted and maybe even manage a smile.
Even though throwing on coordinates inside the house made me feel stylish and polished, that doesn’t change what’s going on outside, and it certainly doesn’t mean getting dressed will make everyone feel better.
I accessorized with my red Marc Jacobs glasses (reserved for days I feel spunky) and asked my fiancé for a quick photo shoot.
I haven’t opened those closet doors in days, not only because I have no one to dress for, but because I don’t feel inspired to dream up an outfit.
I dared myself to dive into the aforementioned matching-set drawer and pulled out this Choosy sweat set, which consists of dusty pink ribbed joggers and a matching cropped turtleneck.
Fashion just brightened my mood. 😻 https://t.co/t7G6imp4on— POPSUGAR Beauty (@POPSUGARBeauty) March 18, 2020
