I feel it’s time to be honest with you all and come out. I am nesh and proud of it. 🙂 Big up the nesh massive and unfurl the fluffy, rainbow blanket of warmth!
Yes, I have a propensity to feeling the cold. As much as I like to be wrapped up and cosy (hello hygge ❤️ ‘hoo-gurr‘), frustratingly I’m not good in hot weather. You’d think that topping up the warmth batteries in summer would help, but it seems not to work like that.
So, the eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed no midweek post. I felt of the mindset that if you don’t have anything nice to say… It was a case that what I might have written about was further challenges with physical tiredness and the effect that has to drive mental health down then dysphoria up a notch. That’s the summary and I’m going to move on to better news. Namely that I’ve been back to the doctor and I’m now on a second treatment for my lung issues. I should say that the Ever Lovely Mrs J was firm and kind in dispelling the imposter syndrome I had that I needed to go back. As ever, she was right, being a smart cookie, and so far, the breathlessness, tiredness, and subsequent dysphoria seem to be waining.
With not feeling quite 100% and with it being a touch bracing at the mo, it’s been a case of thermal leggings or/and opaques to help keep warm. I think I totally get why so many people wear leggings so much, they are just sooo comfy. Ah, we’re back to that feeling of comfort again aren’t we?
Which brings me round to an article in the fashion news about rising hemlines and the tights/no tights question.
Perhaps that’s a question if the wearer can check off from the list: youth, shape, confidence, tone, and a warm environment.
For us mere mortals and the neshinistas – sort of like fashionistas, only we like to be just warm enough 🙂 – the only question is what style of hosiery. That or do you go leggings + boots if the situation requires it?
I enjoyed a wry smile reading the comments of folk with a similar approach and also taking comfort in feeling like I’m dressing 100% bloke. All that and the feeling of finding old favourites in the cupboard, which means a short trip along memory lane and also enjoying what you have.
Memory? Well, I kept on my favourite opaques after a tidy up, so I’m left with the ones that feel good on, fit well, and make me feel good about myself. At least, as much as a bit of clothing can do.
Sometimes, it’s the little things.
PS: I’ve said good things about Snag before and in honesty, I’m not getting anything from them. Other than the fit, I’m impressed by their inclusive approach to tall, small, plus, and disabled customers. They are also featuring designs from the fabulous Jamie. 🏳️🌈
