It’s had to get excited about dress up games if you haven’t had enough sleep. Imagine waking up and not feeling tired. You would pop out of bed and find a great outfit to start your day. You wouldn’t mind putting on a few things and pulling them off again if they weren’t just the right look for your day. As you worked through your closet you’d only feel more energized and then, once you’ve arranged the final outfit for the day, you’d head off to school with a spring in your step and a feeling of success.
Of course, if you’re not getting eight to nine hours of sleep each day, you’re not going to enjoy finding the clothing nearly as much. You’re probably going to stumble into clothes are easy to pull on and not particularly brilliant. Who can be brilliant when she is exhausted, anyhow? Comfortable clothing is the name of the game and blending in as much as possible with what every else is wearing can’t hurt either. You’ll be able to stumble through your day, exhausted, without anyone getting in your way. Sure you can make it through your day without enough sleep, but your fashion and your dress up games will most certainly suffer for it.

It’s a funny thing, but over the summer I was able to plan all sorts of games to play with my closet and clothing. And then once the school eyar started, I lost all focus on it. I wasn’t going to get dressed up and I wasn’t going to try new, fun combinations of the clothing that I had. I reverted back to what works quickly and I didn’t care much if it was flattering or not – it fit, it was in the dress code and I wore it. It’s a sad statement from someone who used to try on everything in her closet to find just the right outfit for the next day.
I need some serious intervention in my dress up games. I think I’m lacking in sleep and motivation, because right now getting an extra ten minutes of sleep is so worth it, and I can’t do much thinking about what to wear or how to wear it if I’m trying to grab those last few winks of the night. I’m going to have to get serious about my clothing if I want to feel a bit better about myself. I also feel great when I’m dressed up, so maybe I’ll find the balancing point soon.
