It’s been five months since the pandemic really dropped and sent us spinning into our corners, wondering what to do next. Five months of not having a job outside the home. Five months of working on my laptop in my pyjamas at the kitchen counter.
It’s not a great look.
But... it’s been comfortable. As we lost control of the outside world, it felt good to close the door on it, to hunker down and hang out in sweats and lounge-wear. There has been freedom and relief in not having to dress up for other people. When things are stressful and unpredictable, I don’t want to have to zip tight, button up or buckle in. I want softness and give. I want snug. I want cozy.
I want new slippers.
I think the ultimate slipper would be something lined with fleece, so my feet would feel extra comfy. A closed shoe, maybe a moccasin, with a soft sole for quietly padding around the house in the morning before I’ve had my first cup of tea.
