09 Feb Turning Heads Linkup-What is Your Pandemic Uniform?
What is your Pandemic fashion these days? One of my favorite combinations to wear is a moto jacket with a floral dress. Add the combat boots and it give you a bit of an edge or something unexpected. But if you want to see what I might wear more daily during the pandemic, I have included that as well.
I’ve styled this “uniform” before on the blog, in this post-Masculine/Feminine look for Fall- Floral Dress with Combats
I have always loved the look and the trendy chunky boot has been very popular this past year There is a fair selection of combat boots too, with some on sale.
I love the dark shades of olive, burgundy and orange tones in this black sheer maxi dress c/o Soft Surroundings.
Fashion and the Pandemic
We all have a “uniform” that we are drawn to, you know, the jeans-sweater-and boots combo… Now, with Covid, we also are looking towards our loungewear-sneaker combo these days.
But to break out of that mold, now and again, this is one style I enjoy wearing.
Are you growing old of your loungewear, your matching sweat sets, your PJs extraordinaire?
I seem to fluctuate during this pandemic, a desire for normalcy ( not the NEW normal) and a desire to “feel like myself”, somedays, while other days leave me feeling like, “Why bother? Who’s going to see me? My puppies don’t care…”
At times, I feel the one thing I can control is my wardrobe, and how I feel. At the beginning of the pandemic, my robes probably wore themselves out, and makeup was a 4 letter word. I vowed through the first 3 months to, “let my skin B-R-E-A-T-H-E..”
Well, recently I bought 3 new MAC lipsticks for a pick me up! Was that silly? Who wears lipstick these days? Well, I guess I do. Around the house. It makes me feel a smidge better.
My mom got her first vaccine recently, so we wait a bit for the second. I have been doin a sketching/drawing course and have been enjoying learning how to draw dogs. I have posted on IG stories some of my drawings if you are interested. I have also been working out in the morning with my home treadmill, and lifting weights. I bought a new 20, 25 lb kettlebell and feel quite good after working out, looking to build endurance and strength.
So, although this may not be my daily “pandemic” uniform, it is a fashion “uniform” I am greatly fond of .
I have included more of my “pandemic uniform” below and something I am more inclined to wear day to day.
Lately, the pandemic uniform….
