Being ill is one of the most unglamorous, unpleasant ways to spend my time. I find it's not just a physical state of being but a mad mental experiment as well. I don't know about you, but I become one of the meanest babies on the planet when my nose is raw from tissue burn, my chest is sore from spasmodic coughing fits, and my skin feels like I have been set on fire. At these points, I seek comfort any way I can get it.
For some reason, when I entered mommy-hood, I let my night time wearables slip into oblivion. I'm now reduced to faded, holy t-shirts and if it's cold, I'll root around till I find a pair of sweats. Out of kindness and consideration of everyone around me and in an effort to distract myself from the mental torture that being ill is for me, I scoured the net looking for cues on how to stay stylish when ill.
I found tons of articles with outfit suggestions and make-up tutorials. And while that might be great for the authors of those articles all I could think was, 'Oh, get bent! Seriously? Jeans? Blush? Wtf ever.' See? Meanest baby on the planet, right here. So I asked myself, what makes me feel best when I'm ill?
~ Pyjamas ~
~ fuzzy socks ~
~ hot teas ~
~ chicken soup ~
~ curling up into oblivion in the fluffiest comforter I can find ~
While the above images seem to be intended to someday filter down into the streets for people to wear as actual clothing (can't see that happening for myself,) I find them rather uninspiring for the sick person. Here would be my choices instead:
The selection is rather fitting considering what a baby I am when ill. I guess I just don't feel fabulously fashion forward when ill and need something that screams comfort, cheery, and somewhat uplifting vibes. If that makes me a creature of comfort, so be it.
So what do you wear when you're ill? And what do you think of pyjama outfits as every day wear?
