Aside from hitting the snooze button more times than I do on a regular day, I find gloomy days to be uninspiring. Staying in bed is more desirable than wearing pants and conquering the world outside. [Newsflash: it's okay to feel like this sometimes.] But just like all things, no feeling in this life is permanent, everything is temporary. Sunny weeks don't last and when it showers, it pours. Gloomy days don't last either though and when brighter days are ahead, the sunlight is abundant.
Unfortunately, in adulthood, we can't escape our responsibilities. We cannot bring in a doctor's note. We cannot keep postponing meetings and deadlines. We have to face reality face first. Sometimes, we need to conquer the world even when we don't feel like it. And on days when the laundry list of things to-do is massive and pants are required, my uninspired girl's guide to an uninspiring day include striped pants and sneakers. These are two staples in my wardrobe this spring and summer season and so easy to put together with a plain T. Fake it until you make it, so they say.
