Raw Edges

Today was manic and anxious, which is never my favorite. I may have brought it on myself by drinking too much coffee at breakfast. Caffeine sets me on a jittery track: sometimes that can make me more productive, but on the other hand it can also shove me out toward the edge. Luckily there wasn't anything in particular on my agenda, and tomorrow is a chance to try again. I'm so grateful that I'm at a point where I can reasonably expect that the bad feelings will pass.

When I consider my outfit in conjunction with my mental health, I'm surprised that I wore a crop-top and a skirt. I tend to dress frumpier if my mood is low, and to avoid fussy pieces. Lace sailor collars are not unfussy! Perhaps the anomaly is related to my dire laundry situation...

I like that I developed a purple glow in the last picture. No big deal. It seems highly possible that I'm magic.

  2. Love the gingham, and I agree: caffeine can be awesome and/or make you feel a little crazy.

  3. Anxiety is 100% the worst. But you look absolutely adorable, so I hope the cuteness lifted your mood a little.

    I'm allergic to caffeine, so while it's nice that I'm forced to slow down sometimes, I do always have to get a good night's sleep, as I don't have the option of a stimulant.

  5. Magic seems probable. You actually look pretty serene in the second photo, so I wouldn't have guessed you were feeling anxious.

    1. Probably a side effect of the magic ;)

  6. That's such a pretty outfit! There's a coffee shop near my house that I really like, but every time I get their coffee I get sooo jittery and crazy when normally caffeine doesn't have much of an effect on me. So I make sure I just stick to tea at that place. It's so weird!
