That Holy Grail Outfit - Nadine Blewett

We all have that one type of outfit; the one we reach for when we need the outfit to do all the work. It’s the outfit you need to look presentable and fake a good night’s sleep and it creates the impression that we are prepared for our day. My go-to, holy grail outfit is always some or other variation on an all-black outfit. In summer, though, I never stray far from an elegant LBD.

My outfit:

Dress: HipHop

Shoes: Dailyfriday

Bag: Zara

Sunglasses: Falco Milano

Some days I truly don’t feel like getting dressed. Whether that is because I am feeling ill or I don’t feel all together well emotionally, life continues. Most of the time I still need to leave the house at some point to fulfill some or other obligation.

The week before last was one of those weeks for me. I was ill and definitely didn’t feel like doing anything but I could only take one day off work. I knew I needed to make myself feel better somehow so dressing up a touch more than I needed to was the key to solving my problem. It made me feel a million times more like myself.

I did my hair and make-up (nothing flashy or out of the ordinary but the fact that I did my hair and make-up at all while feeling ill was a miracle in itself) and I put on a dress and heels. It’s amazing how much of an impact putting effort into your appearance can have on you psychologically on a day you aren’t feeling quite like yourself. I think it makes you walk taller and immediately elevates your mood.

What is your go-to outfit when you feel out of sorts?
