Surviving Stress Glamourously, Part 1: the Go-to outfit

We all have times when our lives get insanely stressful. During those times, we often push style to the back burner at those times, but does it really help? Not really. So I'm going to do a series of posts of tips on how to stay glamourous when you barely have time to sleep.

Part 1: The clothing.

Stressed out and Glamourous

This is really a very personal decision, just what ever you feel comfortable, but pretty in. Personally, I like high waisted super tight skinny jeans or high waisted wide legged pants. Obviously, you could just as easily wear a skirt, but it is currently winter in my area, and I find tights a really pain to wear, so not so good for stress.

Long sleeved shirt or, better yet, sweaters, are a must for me at the moment, since my school hasn't entirely grasped the concept of heating yet, so the temperature is around 15 degrees Celsius. Brr. I like my shirts fairly fitted, preferable with a v-neck or a cowl neck, but that is really just personal choice. I do recommend something at least slightly fitted though, you probably won't feel at all glamourous in a knit bag.

At the moment, I am living in my low heeled black leather boots, since warm feet+cool boots=awesomeness, and they go with pretty much everything. A bag that plays nicely with everything and is big enough to hold all your stuff is good too, since who likes to juggle multiple items?

The fun part of the outfit is the accessories. You could go for scarves, jewelry, hair accessories, whatever you want. I choose earrings, the simple outfits will let them shine.

Thoughts? Requests?

P.S. Thanks for all your support and kind comments on my last post, I really appreciate it.


  1. This is a good idea. I really need to find clothes that I'm comfortable in, but that don't make me feel lame. It's a tough balance.

  2. I usually wear black,white or red. It has nothing to do with my mood. I like to keep the things simple and natural,but I think the accessories are important and they usually keep all the attention.XXL sweaters are my favorite in winter.

  3. i definitely think having a "fallback" outfit is important, especially for the holidays...

  4. Pretty neat tips. I'm at that moment right now, where stress and pressure is just making me go bonkers. I'm currently into lots of comfy skinny jeans and low heeled boots and vests. They are all simple garments but they make a nice looking outfit even on those days where I feel horrid.


  5. I love all the cute accessories! Sometimes I think I should get my ears pierced. As for someone leaving ridiculous comments on your blog - don't take them to heart - anyone who has time on their hands to sit on the internet posting poison just isn't worth getting upset over! :) x

  6. Good tips! I'm going to try more skirt layering and maybe tights layering at some point this week. It's not sooo cold here yet, but I tend to always be chilly no matter what the temperature outside is.

  7. loving everything n the polyvore x

  8. Great tips! Really liked that pink sweater, need to find someting like that.=)
