I am sure you can tell from the title that this is not going to be the happiest post. I was recently dumped in one of those pathetic stories where the gist of it is, my ex texted me while I was at work to say he gotten another girlfriend without breaking up with me first. Needless to say, I was not pleased so after I got off work, I descended into wallowing. Lorelai Gilmore said it best to her daughter, Rory, after Rory's first serious heartbreak.
Lorelai: I think what you really need to do today is wallow.
Lorelai: Oh yeah. Get back in your pajamas, got to bed, eat nothing but gallons of ice cream and tons of pizza. Don't take a shower or shave your legs or put on any kind of makeup at all. And just sit in the dark and watch a really sad movie and have a good long cry and just wallow. You need to wallow. (Gilmore Girls, Season 1, Episode 17)
Yes, it sounds sort of pathetic but I did not really feel like doing anything else but wallow. I didn't take any time off school or work. I still went to all of my commitments and wallowed when I was in my apartment at night. Since this is a fashion website, here are my wallowing clothing tips. It is the best way I have found to be able to go from society to my couch without having to change. Plus, it is getting colder so I couldn't just wear shorts and a tank top out of the house.
Seriously, buy some yoga pants. They are super comfy and look more polished than baggy sweatpants. They come in a variety of colors and can also be paired with leather boots making them appear a little more formal. You can also wear fitted sweatpants if you would like.
Wear a t-shirt. I tend to be a cardigan, fitted top type of girl but this week, I went for t-shirts. V-neck t-shirts are comfortable and fit you well so you don't look frumpy. You can also pick your favorite graphic t-shirt and if they have a fun saying on them, more power to you.
I rocked a variety of jackets this week. I don't wear denim on denim so I wore my jean jacket with my yoga pants. I also threw an over-sized cardigan over my outfit so I could look cute and be warm.
Personally, I did not bother with makeup and even let my nail polish get chipped, something I never do but I just didn't feel like dealing with it. I have worked past my wallowing stage and have rejoined the human race. I still lived my life but I spent my evenings bumming on my couch with my roommates. Just because I was hurt does not mean that I could stopping living so I took baby steps. Sometimes putting in effort seems overwhelming so I wallowed for a bit. I felt wallowing was good for me but it might not be for everyone. If you have had your heart broken and wallowed, remember -- I feel for you.
