|DARK DAYS journal spread|
Some days I just want to wear black, and disappear into the background. These are Dark Days, dull grey skies, totally miserable weather, when my hair's a mess and I don't really feel like dressing up (I'm only going to the supermarket or library). So it's on with the Basic Black (Tshirt and trousers). This also necessitates a quick coffee break somewhere nice, with a book (and possibly a Danish pastry or a cup cake). Then I do the shopping, and go home feeling tons better, able to face the world again.
