As I was thinking about writing my next post, I was mulling over topics. I realized that I have not done an outfit post in some time. I realized that I have been avoiding it at all cost... WHY?
Then it dawned on me... Winter Blues, I have always had them, even the 8 years I lived in Florida.
There is just something about this time of year that always gets me down. I love clothe, I love winter fashion, but I find myself in a winter blues rut every year. Although I purchase great pieces, I often run back to my go to staples and it's not cute y'all lol. I have no desire to wear the awesome boots, the 3 coats I bought this year, the awesome textured tights, the caramel wedges ... nothing... nothing is appealing to me ... It looks awesome on all my sister bloggers but this girl just can't get into it.
Now I know what some people may be thinking that winter blues don't really exist but they do. It is defined as a "mild depression, lack of motivation, and low energy experienced during the cold season" (Web MD). It is estimated that there are 3million US cases per year, that's me I am definitely one of them, it's all I can do to just make it out the door in the morning, do drop offs and drive like a bat outta hell to make it in to work on time lol. Now the winter blues are less severe than Season Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD can span more than one season or you could be affected by any season. And in the NYC all this snow is not helping!
So what is a fashionista with the winter blues to do? Well I try and rally against it and force myself into something fashionable at least once a week. I also stay inspired by other bloggers and I also pass on their awesome looks... just because I can't bring myself to wear it doesn't mean I don't enjoy seeing it on other women!
