Putting On a Brave Face

I am having a rough month.  Yes, I know we’re only six days in, but December really isn’t working for me.  I tried cheering myself up with some hot pink:


And it almost worked.  But, that smile is pretty forced – this is how I really felt today:

Boo on the sad face.

It’s not the outfit’s fault though.  I actually really like the hot pink sweater (Talbots, thrifted) layered over the blue and navy dress (thrifted) with the blue tights (DKNY via Nordstrom) and tasseled booties (Seychelles via Nordstrom).  I’m just gloomy, is all. 

Although I wasn’t able to put on much of a brave face today, bear with me; I usually find my smile again after not too long.

I hope you’re all having a happier Tuesday than I,

Gracey

  2. Oh hun, I hear you. I've burst into tears at least twice today. December is a rough one--especially the beginning, when the holidays are more stress and less celebration. You look beautiful, though, and I always love fuchsia with navy.

  3. On noes, Gracey! I hope you feel better soon. November was that kind of month for me; I felt like throwing a huuuuuuuge party on December 1st. I'm sending happy thoughts your way!

  6. I sometimes have to dress happy too to try to get back in a good mood. Sometimes it works, sometimes. . . I want to back to bed and pull the covers over my head. :)

  7. That was the bulk of my November for sure. I hope you can find some sunshine in your colorful clothes, but I also hope that you give yourself permission to be down if you need to be down.

  9. The pink does look cheery on the outside, even if you're not feeling it on the inside. My every month is turning into being a not feeling it these days. I feel your pain. It's a drag.
