I can’t even begin to describe how ill I’ve been over the past week and a half. I barely had enough energy to read blogs, let alone update my own. I spent most of the time on the couch, cuddled under the electric blanket and watching Happy Town, Law and Order, and Ghost Whisperer through half-asleep eyes.
I have written about this before, the last time I was sick, but I’m curious about people’s clothing and style when they are not feeling well. For the first couple days of staying home, I wore my winter pajamas: a Nick & Nora fleece set from Target, with playful snow puppies on the bottom with a coordinating solid top. I covered that with my L.L.Bean fleece robe, and followed up with slipper socks.
By the end of the week, I was still too sick to go to work, but I was getting a bit of cabin fever. Instead of my pajamas, I switched to leggings and tee shirts over thermals. I was still super comfortable (within the means of the illness, you understand) but I felt like I actually got up and dressed like a normal person.
Do you stay in pajamas when you are sick, or do you get dressed in an effort to make yourself feel better? Do you lounge around in bed, or prefer to sit up with blankets on the couch?
This week I am back at work, but still recovering; my outfits are mostly repeats of things I put together for comfort so I don’t have to think about styling anything new. I do have a few outfit posts coming up, photos taken before the flu hit me with hurricane force winds, that you should see over the next few days.
