I’ve been indoors a whole lot these days, and you can really tell with these consecutive indoor, lounging-on-the-chair outfit shots! Not to mention the pale skin! Eek.
Before the clothing police knock on my door, I do want to point out that I am at home in these photos. This is pretty much what I wear, my stijl around the house during the winter: A cozy baggy sweater, leggings, and butt/back coverage, which in this case is a skirt. I wear leggings a lot while at home, because this is where I do most of my stretches and relaxation.
Contrary to what you might think based on what you see on À LA MODEST, I actually wear jeans and sneakers a lot. I was never really a jeans-and-sneakers kind of person in the past. Being a girl who likes to move a lot now, it’s necessary to wear comfortable clothes. I like wearing statement coats and scarves on top of casual clothes, just to mask the whole laid back and lazy look with something more put together.
Winter is a time when many of us are feeling sad and lonely, regardless of circumstance. I find myself feeling most vulnerable on winter nights—the combination of cold weather and early darkness just tears me down. I am mostly introverted, but when the sun goes down, I am often needing and wanting company.
