I needed to go out for quick errands today (a stop at the hardware store and a brief Target run), so I’m wearing real clothes, so to speak.

I see so many of you here looking beautiful and polished during this time, and I feel like a total schlump. My hair is out of control, and I kind of just don’t care much about my appearance now, mainly because almost no one sees me and if I’m being brutally honest, I’m depressed. It’s been an awful year.

I’m making at least a slight attempt when I go out in public — and I wore a casual but nice dress to have anniversary dinner at home with my husband last weekend. Otherwise I’m just throwing on the first pair of shorts and tee I find, or living in gear to go out hiking or biking. Makeup is a joke. I don’t bother with styling product on my hair. I am having a hard time recalling when I felt less attractive than I do now.

So, with all of that woe-is-me out of the way, here’s what I wore to go out and do my errands this morning. Ripskirt, Cloth & Stone tie-front shirt, and Cole Haan sneakers that are starting to look worse for the wear. I threw on a tiny crossbody because I needed to carry some hardware and a shopping list. I dunno, maybe on a different day I might feel a little bit cute in this? I like the skirt just fine, and I like the shirt too. But I’m not loving how the sneakers look with this — maybe white sneakers or my sandals would have been better. Makeup would help, but I can’t be bothered lately. And you can see my hair is a frizzy disaster. It got in my way numerous times while I was out. I guess I should just live in a ponytail for now.

Ugh! LOL
