Sleep Deprived Trying To Look Chirpy | Outfit


Do you know how I usually feel? Sleep deprived but trying to look awake. Pretending to be alive, though often only passing as a zombie. I'm not a morning person, and after being tired all day long I somehow come to live late in the evening when I should really be sleeping. And so this little problem continues on. I figured, why not share an outfit post when I was feeling extra tired... that I grabbed for coffee as soon as I saw a coffee shop!


I mean, just look at my eyes. They are so small on that day haha. I might have covered my face with makeup, but my eyes are still showing their tiredness. I also tried wearing my pretty new skirt, so the attention would go there rather than to my sleepy face. This is only the case when I have to be presentable, otherwise I'm a real life zombie haha. I am only kidding. Slightly. This day I had to be somewhat presentable, though, and so I bothered. I guess the outfit is a bit on the dark side, so I tried to add some color on my lips and with my favorite scarf.


To me this outfit really revolves around the prett floral skirt. I bought the skirt when I was on holiday in Málaga, Spain, last summer. I went to the big department store El Corte Inglés and came across this wonderful brand called Coast UK. It has the prettiest dresses and skirts. I found a gorgeous black dress that would be perfect for formal wear, but they did not have it in my size anymore. The struggle. Luckily, this skirt also appealed to me a lot and made my choice of having to choose between two (not so inexpensive) items much easier... seeing as I no longer had a choice, ha. The pretty skirt also has pockets and is very comfortable to wear, so a double win!

Skirt: Coast - Cardigan & Scarf: H&M - Crossbody Bag: Sfera - Bracelet: Clouds of Fashion.
I got my nails done with Caption Nail Polish (click on the first picture for a close-up). Pretty nail art that stayed on my nails perfectly for over a week! I wore my old H&M ballerinas with this outfit, but I have come to realize that my poor feet need more support... an these shoes really do not give them. I do like simple ballerinas like those, though, especially in different colors. Oh, well, with my pretty skirt on, some lipstick on my face, and a strong coffee in my hand, I was ready to face the day. Perhaps a bit slow, but smiling nevertheless.

  1. I dont think you look that tired, and the skirt really draws attention away from the face, as it is very pretty. And if it has pockets, it is a total winner!

  2. Sounds like you're a vicious circle with your exhaustion issues :-( Maybe you can slowly adapt your sleeping schedule until it normalizes?

    Either way I think you look really pretty here! Not getting any zombie vibes from you at all :-)

  3. Mooie outfit! Leuke rok ook! Wat vervelend dat je zo'n last hebt van vermoeidheid, het lijkt mij echt lastig als je elke keer overdag moe bent en dan 's avonds actief wordt, maar stiekem is het ook wel een beetje herkenbaar; ik ben ook totaal geen ochtendmens en word 's avonds al snel wat actiever. Wat bij mij wel helpt is om voordat ik naar bed "moet" wat van die sleepy tea te drinken.

  4. Een paar jaar geleden werd ik he-le-maal verliefd op een rood jurkje van Coast. Ik heb tot op vandaag spijt dat ik het niet gekocht heb, maar het is natuurlijk geen goedkoop merk. Mooi is alles dan weer wel ;) Leuke outfit, trouwens! Je ziet totaal niet dat je moe bent hoor ;) you make-up genius! xo

  11. Ik vind dat je je vermoeidheid perfect hebt weggestoken hoor! Niets dat niet kan opgelost worden met een mooie lippenstift hé! ;) En een prachtig rokje. Ik heb even een kijkje genomen op de website van het merk en woooow prachtige dingen zeg!
    Sinds ik werk en altijd op een vast uur opsta, is mijn ochtendvermoeidheid wel echt héél erg afgenomen :) Al ben ik nog steeds meer een avondmens dan een ochtendmens :) Hooray for coffee! :D

    Liefs,

  13. I love the print on your skirt! As for looking tired...well, my mom told me the other day "you look tired" and I'm pretty sure it was because I wasn't wearing any makeup, because it certainly wasn't because of my 8+ hours worth of sleep, GEEZ. Winged liner definitely makes me look "less tired" and doubles as making me look like a boss a$$ bitch, heh.

    How about adding insoles to your flats?
