Weekly Wardrobe #9
A knitted trouser edit, my new unlikely style inspiration and your NYC recommendations...
I started the week horizontal thanks to a nice ol’ bout of food poisoning. But when I thought about what I was wearing I had to laugh because it was head-to-toe ARKET. How ON BRAND?! You just have to laugh. I’ve done a little collage above if you need a good ‘rotting day’ outfit, but in lieu of an actual outfit formula here is a definitive list of the best sick day foods for which I have conducted extensive research:
Ritz crackers - nice and salty, they hit the right spot.
An ice cold lucozade out of a straw - left to go a little flat WITH ice, that’s non-negotiable.
A fruit pastille ice lolly - a must-have! So nice on the throat.
And right at the top for me - drumroll please - READY SALTED CRISPS! I loved these when I was pregnant too. Salty, crunchy. I easily go through a few multi-packs whenever I’m unwell.
If ever you need a good conversation starter - ‘What is your sick day food?’ elicits some great responses. The most *interesting* one I’ve heard so far… MASHED POTATO SANDWICHES. I’ll just leave that there.
You know when you just kind of need to pick yourself up and get on with it!? That was Tuesday. Look, my nail lady gets extremely booked up and I was not about to go and lose that appointment! So I trotted off to see her at lunch and spent the rest of the day working from home and testing the waters with the list of foods from above. We did shoot our November campaign for Sezane in their glorious denim jumpsuit*, so I wore that for the rest of the day. I usually size up to a 14 in their jumpsuits to get an oversized fit, but I stuck with a 12 in this and I’m pleased I did because it hugs in all the right places. There’s something a bit 70’s about it which I love. When I left the house I just wore it with my COS coat* (which is fast becoming my go-to for errands and nursery runs), and my Flattered flats* which have about one week left in them before it gets too cold to wear them I reckon. Sad times!
