It was a late night last night and we in the DC area woke to a grey and rainy day. I had a post scheduled for today but it seemed wrong. Considering the news in America, it seemed silly to be sharing my outfit on a fashion blog.
Right now, if you're confused, angry, scared, or hurting please take care of yourself. Self care is important, it gives you resilience, it's the oxygen mask you need to help others. It helps you slow down and think and make sound decisions. I didn't sleep well for the few hours I was in bed last night and woke exhausted and upset. But I need to go on, we all need to go on, and we need to do it together. I did some sun salutations, gave Cindy my dog a long decadent belly rub, and am drinking coffee while writing this. As I look out the window, I see the rain has stopped. If it's still clear out when I get home from work, I may go for a long walk at the lake featured in this post, where I walked earlier this week in this outfit. This election is about much more than the economy to many, more personal. Be gentle with yourself, and please be considerate of those around you who are hurting. No matter how you voted, we women need to support one another and continue to make this a strong and safe country for us and our future generations.
