I went back to the gym this week! I take yoga classes twice a week just to stay flexible, but I hadn’t been on the treadmill since last spring. Just laziness, I guess, because I always feel better when I exercise. For the past 5 years or so, I have suffered in the winter from SADD, Seasonal Affective Depression Disorder. I’m fine until about the end of January, and then it hits me. It’s not a serious depression, more of a low grade one. I feel listless and unmotivated. Now that I know that I have the disorder, I try to prepare for it. I take 5,000 BTU of Vitamin D3 year around, but the thing that helps me most is exercise! If I can get on the treadmill and walk/run 2-3 miles, the endorphins will kick in and make me feel better. I also have a “happy light” that I use in the morning. There are many of these on the market, but here is a link to the one I have. I would be interested in knowing if any of you suffer from this disorder, and what helps you get through the winter?
This week’s Shop Your Closet outfit is one that most of you probably have in your closet.
I’ve had this white Pom Pom v neck sweater for at least eight years. The v neck is a flattering neckline for most everyone. Since it’s no longer available, I have linked three different sweaters, here, here and here. And some of them are on sale!
Today I chose to dress it up with three different strands of pearl necklaces. Sometimes I wear a scarf with the outfit. I had planned to style a scarf with it to show you another way to style it, but we had driven out of town to take the photos, and I left it behind.
I wore my dark wash modern skinny jeans from Loft with this outfit. Here is a link.
My tote handbag is from the Coach outlet a few years ago. Here is a similar one from Macy’s.
