This week Pam and I are continuing our series on How to Hit Your Style Sweet Spot. We’re sharing how we dress when we feel lousy. It’s pretty easy to decide not to bother, when you feel unwell. But that’s just when attention to self-care, and your appearance, can make a big difference. For me, it’s not a make-believe scenario this week. To make a long story short, I had to start using my husband’s cane, right after Christmas, and now I’m back on crutches.
My hip has decided to let me down and taken my lower back with it. I’ve felt like quasi motto lately, and not been able to do much but lay on a heating pad.
I missed Style Sweet Spot last week because my kids and grandson were here. I didn’t want to take any time away from the fun! My family comes first and I don’t believe in multitasking.
And this week I couldn’t stand long enough to take photographs so I made a little video with my phone. I just love these technical challenges 🙂
I’m going to share what I do when I feel lousy, and why it’s important to me.
It would have been easy to lounge around in my robe all day. Shuffling down for tea between book chapters. But I felt more human wearing perfume, a little makeup and my favorite color. It didn’t make my hip or back less painful, but it did pick up my spirits. If I’d had to go out, or someone had face-timed me, I wouldn’t have felt embarrassed by how I looked.
Self care is some of the very best medicine.
Now let’s pop over to see what Pam Lutrell is wearing when she feels lousy.
We’ve had such a positive response to this new series, we are delighted to continue it into 2016!
Wishing you all a fabulous New Year. It’s going to be a great one!
