As we emerge from “…the winter of our discontent” and prepare to re-enter our former, yet forever altered, lives/lifestyles, I’ve been thinking about how I will present myself. Many predict that the post-COVID era will mimic the Roaring Twenties. Perhaps, for a moment, to relieve pent-up frustration.
I tried to be true to myself this past year and was exceptionally mindful of adding to what I already have. My fashion diary , shopping rules, and focus on a simple wardrobe were together my compass as I made purchases. Oddly, I acquired a number of items that had been on my wish list for years. A chunky cardigan, a non-trench raincoat, an everyday black bag, an easy cocktail dress, and a light-weight parka. They may not be the most exciting items, but things I will wear endlessly.
So, how will I present myself? On the outside I will look pretty much the same, it’s the gratitude in my heart that I will wear on my sleeve.
