There comes a time when mid winter hits us in the strongest way possible. After not seeing the sun for almost three months in a row You simply can not be as joyful as You normally are during the rest of the seasons. It becomes a lot harder to get inspired or in general appreciate the beauty that surrounds You.
In situations like this all of us have different ways to snap out of it and get back to our selves. Till now I didn’t know what mine was. Go figure … First I thought I need a quick getaway - so i did, I went to Africa fro a week - the whole inspiration and excitement was gone straight after I got out of the plain with my light trench coat and my silver Pinko sneakers, as minus twenty degrees hit me. Ok I thought I need something else … I started reading inspirational books and watching motivational movies - guess what - nothing. As how the hell it can really work when u look outside and its the same view as always, either blizzard or a storm… I am sure most of You would think or say not to take it so deep, but lets be fair we are women, we are difficult and demanding. And well when one thought hits our mind it does not leave that easily, secondly if we have some bump on the road we do not let the time fix it - we do it ourselves. This situation is no different.
So I thought to myself - each time this type of mood hits me I need to have a cure asap.
And You know what? I found it.
Every single one of You have those pieces in the closet that makes Your knees weak every time You remember them, right? It can be anything : Your favourite summer dress, Your beloved pair of heels, Your silk blouses and well in my case my 90s jeans and stilettos…
And tell me straight - did any of You managed to skip those moments when You sit in the coffee house wearing at least five layers of clothes in Your UGGs and You simply dream that You could sit outside with a glass of mimoza wearing Your favourite satin dress in Your fabulous stilettos? No You didn’t ! Am I right? So the "cure" that I found was a day at home with my most missed pieces on me and with the best mood I could ever dream of.
Let me tell You .... the day looked chic and intimate. I played Marvin Gaye, I photographed my works, I wrote a few articles and I went through my vintage collection of fashion magazines, never the less, all of this I did in my favourite pair of nude stilettos, my to die for 90s jeans and newly bought pure white blouse … and believe You me - it was fantastic. The mood came back, the inspiration kicked inn and I felt like a woman again. As lets be fair wearing all those layers, coats, parkas, boots, hats and so on really puts weight on us not only in a physical way but in a moral way too.
More than ever I catch myself dreaming about bright colours, light textures, flawless fabrics and well heels... And for those of You who feel the same way it's crucial to have this type of getaways with the help of Your closet and imagination. So when You have a lighter day or even the weekend off - make sure You try it out, and You ll see there is nothing better.
