I was woken up by a dramatic work-related phone call at 6am the other morning. While I was trying to fall back asleep this outfit popped into my head. I generally try not to let my 6am brain make many of my decisions because It’s my 6am brain that somehow convinces me that I CAN in fact press snooze 4 more times and that I’ll have no problem getting ready for work in 5 minutes. Not my smartest of decisions. As a result I have never let my 6am brain pick out any of my outfits. If I am getting up early I tend to pick out my clothes the night before so my 10pm brain can do all the work. But why am I so trusting of 10pm brain? 10pm brain is easily convinced that I have time to watch 2 more episodes of the Housewives of Orange County before bed which is really the only reason that 6am brain wants to hit snooze!

9am brain usually only picks out jeans and blazers and 1pm brain is usually feeling bloated from lunch and selects sweat pants.

So why was I being so hard on 6am brain? I decided to try out the outfit that I came up with so early in the morning and I’m glad I did. This outfit was simple in the way that I love and really comfortable for an afternoon at English Bay.

I salute you 6am brain. Well done.
