fashion Easy outfit formulas to look pulled together when your life is in chaos. Basmah Qazi

Sometimes, no matter how hard you try to remain optimistic, life just throws a curveball at you. One minute, things could be peachy, and the next, everything crumbles around you.

In fact, anytime life feels too peaceful, be wary, because chances are your car rego is about to creep up on you, your landlord is going to up your rent, and your cat thought now would be a great time to throw up all over your carpet.

(Can you tell I’m speaking from experience?)

If you find yourself nodding along, screaming “YES!” then take a deep breath. I know it doesn’t feel like it right now, but this too shall pass — and feeling put together will help speed up the process.

I know it’s hard to look polished when you feel anything but, however, think of it as a psychological play. Adulting is all about faking it till you make it; it’s the only way to beat life at its own game.

So allow me to help you change out of your three-day-old pyjamas and remind you who the heck you are.

While I may not have the answer as to why life just sucks sometimes—although I do think Mercury is in retrograde right now, so maybe that has something to do with it — I can help you look and feel your best.
