October … had good weather. There, I said something nice. Of course, “good weather” is a relative concept, but we finished the month snow-free, which counts as positively tropical for this time of year around these parts. I’ve been hearing reports of snow around other parts of the province this week, so now I’m quaking in my boots. The “fall back” to Standard Time isn’t helping – I feel like I’m living in darkness permanently. Sad face.

Oh, poo. I was supposed to keep this nice and positive. Oh well. Let’s look at the clothes, shall we?

I didn’t HATE and I didn’t LOVE any of my outfits this month. To be honest, I felt pretty blah throughout, and I don’t know why. It probably has nothing to do with the clothes, and a lot to do with things going on in my life. I keep waiting to finish the hard slog through my book edits, and telling myself that I’ll get back to having fun (occasionally! let’s not get crazy here) after it’s all done but … who knows. Probably won’t happen. As stressed out and frequently miserable as writing makes me, it’s also kinda become a habit after nearly 7 months. Sigh. This is not good, you guys. I think I need an intervention šŸ˜‰

Tell me all about your October and how you’re planning to keep the “winter is coming” blues at bay.

6 Comments on What I Wore: October Word Wardrobe Capsule

  1. Well I love them, particularly the floral skirt with the yellow blouse & grey blazer. Perfection.

    I enjoyed October, not sure I’ll enjoy November so much with little daylight & the relentless push towards Christmas. I like Christmas but hate January & Christmas is just the gateway to January isn’t it?! Bah.

    • Oh god, January is the worst, isn’t it? I couldn’t believe it when I figured out there are only 6.5 weeks till Xmas … that means January is almost here *sobs*

  2. I feel like I could sense your blues this month! October in Toronto wasn’t so bad.. we made a point of taking a well-needed vacation and I think that helped. November is my most “blah” month, so I have started taking Vitamin D supplements (we Canadians are extremely deficient, especially when the outdoor months end). I hope the editing goes well, I look forward to reading your first novel šŸ™‚

    • I always forget the Vitamin D!! Thanks for the reminder.

      And thank you for the encouragement – I’m still hoping to be on track for a pre-Christmas publication. Fingers crossed!

  3. Four and ten for the win! This is great – after two years of misery I have finally quit my job this week (evil boss) and am joining a new company on January first. The new office is more formal than my present one, so these are giving me great ideas for work ensembles (though in my heart I am a casual girl and I really like your weekend posts)
