Did you know that today is the most depressing day of the year? I didn’t either until I heard that on the news the other day... and thank goodness they told us, because I would have been confused if I’d woken up this morning not knowing why I was so damn depressed.
Just kidding. No, but really! Some experts have declared January 23rd of 2012 to be “Blue Monday,” the date on which a combination of weather, the passage of Christmas, holiday debt, and failed New Year’s resolutions all catch up to us and we start feeling really, really crappy. There is some debate that last week, the 16th, may have been Blue Monday, but I’m going with what I heard on the news. Today is the day.
In honor of Blue Monday, I incorporated blue into my outfit which, consequently, is quite springy in nature thanks to unusually warm temperatures here in Texas. If you’re feeling a bit down today, I hope you won’t do anything too drastic. It’s scientific people. You simply cannot help it.
Personally, I think what you need is some red lipstick. And maybe a super bright colored scarf. Oh! And free shoes from Blowfish! Any shoes of your choosing! Might turn out to be a great day, after all. :) (giveaway below!)
My pants are glowing.
