Sick with Desire



Regular readers might’ve noticed that I didn’t update yesterday, even though I usually do daily blogposts. You might ask yourself where I was and you may have thought I was out doing glamorous things, hanging with my girlfriends, partying the night away or something. Well, you are sadly mistaking. I don’t really want to gross you out with the details, but my night and day mainly involved numerous trips to the bathroom, staying in bed until 3 in the afternoon because walking around made my stomach turn and rapid dehydration. No, I did not have a fun day. Some kind of stomach flu hit me like Mohammed Ali on a rampage. So I was not in the mood to take pictures of myself (FYI, I was wearing blue pajamas with a reindeer print allover and pink socks), let alone write about myself.
So you get my update now. Luckily I’m one of those people who get sick HARD and recover fast. I lost 1,5 kg in one day, that is some serious shit. No pun intended. Anyway, I’m feeling somewhat better now. I had two slices of bread. I’m still not feeling very hungry though. Which sucks, because I love eating. I’m actually totally craving a plate of lasagne. My mind wants lasagne, but my body wants to have an empty stomach. Very unnerving.

Anyway, this is what i’m wearing today. The same tights and boots as my last entry (that made it to chictopia’s front page, yeay!), but if a girl can’t be a lazy dresser on a sick day, then when can she? I quite love this outfit actually. I adore the fur hat (last one at H&M, they all sold out because of the cold weather) and this maxi dress I hiked up a bit with a belt. I’m sure you’ve seen this one all over the blogosphere and I fell in love with it immediately too. I wore it to a wedding in november and I wanted to wear it again in a very different way, so this is what I came up with! The cardigan is a cashmere blend so very warm and soft and luxurious (bought it from my first ever pay check), and perfect for a comfy day of getting better (all the time). The necklace is one of my all time favorites, perfect for my more bohemien outfits and very unique.

Hope you are feeling better than I am!

 dress, hat, ring: H&M
tights, necklace: Pimkie
boots: New Look
belt: boyfriend's
cardi: Zara

BTW: I just ordered this off Etsy. I really wanted a denim dress to layer over tshirts and shirts etcetera and since our River Island didn't have that one dress I wanted to have, I had to prowl ebay and etsy until I found a cheap alternative. I can't wait to style it with all my Alexa Chung slash kinder garten inspiration!
