So, it’s one of those weeks where your drawers are next to empty and the majority of your clothes are in a huge heap on the chair, scattered all over the floor, the bed, the bathroom and living room and everywhere but the closet.
(I suppose I should be writing in first person and not assuming that you’re as messy as I am… But, humor me, please.)
It’s one of those days where you’re struggling to find a clean pair of socks in your mix of semi-clean clothes and dirty clothes. It’s one of those days where you look in your closet which is still half full with clothes but can’t seem to find something appropriate to wear to work. It’s the day you finally buckle down and declare it laundry day. But, you still have to find something decent to wear to work in the meantime.
So, you start pulling out random items from the closet and hoping, just hoping, to find an interesting combination of layers that you have yet to discover. Yeah, you think, a layered look – that’ll work. Right?
Nope. You try on four or five different combinations before finally settling. This will have to do, you think. So, you send a quick snapchat to your most trusted friends/family members, “it doesn’t look THAT bad, does it?” And you wait. Looking in the mirror, you sigh, go back to your heap of clothes and dig again hoping something will pop up out of nowhere. Nothing.
Finally, someone responds, “it looks cute!” they say. “Right,” you say to yourself sarcastically, but you have no other choice, so you go with it.
And when someone happens to compliment your laundry day look, you find the need to quickly defend or explain yourself, “It’s laundry day!”
So, here it is my “lovely” laundry day look. I have to admit it’s not that bad, but it definitely looks a little frumpier than I’d like to look. Oh well, at least it was comfy.
Please, tell me you’ve had the same experience at least once.
