Linus had the right idea dragging his blanket around.
I wasn’t a blanket-carrying kiddo — I had a stuffed pig — but I get the appeal. The comfort is physical and emotional, plus there’s the added warmth. I’ve been feeling literally and figuratively exhausted this past week, so the caffeine addition is high and the patience for uncomfortable anything is low. I sound like such a bummer, but I’m not down — I’m just caught up in that grown-up boring bullshit.
Solution: Easy updates to my lazy-day outfit bring in more comfort, more style, and better moods. I feel physically comfortable without the emotional damage of, “Why did I wear pajamas in public?!” This blanket scarf is a new winter favorite, as it literally lets me snuggle my face into my outfit like a weird plaid turtle shell. You guys, it’s the antisocial dream.
Another update was switching out my stack of metal bracelets for one metal bangle and a leather wrap bracelet. Victoria Emerson recently sent me this skull-covered item, and I have got to say this arm party is much more comfortable than my normal option; it doesn’t get turned around, tangled, or caught in my sleeve like a combination of bangles and chains always does, and it has yet to annoy my wrists while working at a desk. I’m just as surprised as you to call jewelry a comfort item, but who am I to argue with the truth?
