Stylishly sick



sickie.jpgThe only thing that hurt more than my pounding head this morning was my sore throat. Then I proceeded to puke. Ick, ick and ick. Some sick days are best spent huddled in bed, while others find you slogging off to work. Here's how to look your best when you feel your worst:

Pukey, stay-at-home day:

Think of your bathrobe as the little black dress of the sniffles set. The best robes are warm and fluffy, featuring deep pockets so you can quickly hide your Kleenex when your knight in shining armor arrives with chicken soup.

Sneezy, out-and-about day:

You're well enough (achoo) to work or run errands (achoo again), even if it means getting the evil eye from anyone who encounters your crud in their airspace. Today calls for a hoodie, with its deep pockets for finger-warming and tissue-hiding. As a bonus, you can pull up the hood if you just need to nap.

On the road to recovery day:

It appears your nose will not fall off, but you're still a long way from pole dancing. Embrace the cardigan/boyfriend sweater as a surefire way to look more put together than you feel. Pair with comfy jeans or pants, though, since the last thing you need right now is reduced circulation from your skinny jeans.
