October Blues

 I’m not entirely sure whats happening with me but suddenly (or slowly) I’ve drifted from my usual go-to style. Fashion and personal style is a bit weird like that. I’ve often said you can tell my mood from the way that I dress and this year certainly brings a different side out of me. I’m absolutely in love with this time of year but its so bittersweet to me. Once all the trees are officially bare and the sun starts setting around 5pm, my mood plummets. I’m certain I’m not the only one who gets this way. Its a constant battle every year to find new, healthy ways to deal with my fall/summer depression.
This year I’ve been doing a fairly good job of pushing myself to stay productive. Getting up early and putting myself together with enough time to catch some sunshine has been extremely helpful. October brings me so much joy and sadness all at the same time. I struggle and I push forward and find my way through it. Fashion and blogging has been a God send in ways. I started this little blog about this time of year 5 years ago. I can hardly believe how quickly time has gone by and I often become nostalgic whenever the shorter days begin. It was this time 5 years ago that I started the most exciting, challenging and rewarding projects of my life.  Do you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder? What are ways you cope with the shorter, gloomier days?
