When I first assembled the beginnings of this blog, the Blogger programme wanted me to indicate what category of blog this is. I didn't select one because I couldn't put it into a category. It's not a fashion blog, not completely a personal style blog, a little bit but not quite a lifestyle blog, it's just a random blog and I'm not alone in creating this type. I consider it the blog of a woman living her life the best she can and taking others along for the ride. The makers of Blogger forgot to include such a category.
Many of the blogs I read and the blogging friends I have made are about personal style and one aspect of my life, in living with this chronic illness I am always mentioning, is finding ways to remember self care, to feel good about myself, to feel it is worth getting up every day, and that involves personal grooming and putting on clothing that goes beyond pyjamas or sweatpants. If I am in pyjamas or sweatpants I am going to be spending the day or most of the day in bed. Even if it's a day of mostly sitting and reading, writing, or drawing, I put on clothes that make me feel good, that I would be happy to be seen in, but are also comfortable, both physically and emotionally for me. I will skip on accessories except for the earrings I always ware. Empty ear holes make me crazy.
On at home, tired days, I am less fussed about things being absolutely flattering to my waistline and more concerned with comfort.
I have joined the nightgown as day wear club I think, though I am not quite certain, and I have aimed for elevated and chic nightgown dressing with a stay at home casual vibe. I picked up this thin as cheesecloth dress or nightgown, not really knowing which it was meant to be and thinking it didn't matter much anyhow as I could happily sleep in it or wear it in the day time. Daytime wear does require some layering and I have many ideas on how to play with that. Today, I've got a blue and white skirt under it, giving it a sort of reversed slkirt and slip look. Because it is white, and I have layered a white cotton crocheted top over it, I am linking up to Share In Style over at Mis Papelicos.
The vet took urine samples and there is no sign of infection but some indication of inflammation so she is on anti-inflammatory medication and we will see how that goes. She seems comfortable and so far there is no sign of pee in any inappropriate place.
