I can occasionally get a case of really extreme Puffy Face. Do you guys ever get this? I basically have the least-healthy diet on the planet, so I just consume salt and sugar all day long, and I don’t drink nearly enough water (I know — terrible, I’m working on it…). As a result of this, some mornings I will wake up with an insanely swollen face. One morning in college, my face was so swollen when I woke up that I couldn’t open my eyes. My boyfriend at the time thought it was freaking hilarious. I seriously couldn’t see anything and had to stay home until the “swelling” went down (I mean, it’s not really swelling — it’s from water retention). So, on the day these photos were taken (the day before yesterday), I had woken up with a pretty bad case of Puffy Face. You might not notice because I just made these photos as bright as possible, but I can assure you that the result is pretty funny IRL. I actually frightened a hostess at the restaurant where I ate lunch the day these pictures were taken.
Whenever I feel like I’m having a gnarly face-day, I always want to wear extremely comfortable clothes, so I opted for a cozy sweater, super worn-in ribbed tank top that I had cropped just by cutting across with scissors, and a pair of velvet leggings. A comfortable outfit can do just that sometimes: comfort you.
