Today’s outfit post is a little different. I questioned whether or not to share this at all, but I think it serves as a good reminder that behind every cookie-cutter glitter-dipped blog, there is a real person.
For the last 72 hours, I’ve been undergoing an ambulatory EEG, to record brain activity and attempt to shed some light on my epilepsy. I in no way am sharing this for pity, attention, sympathy, or anything of the sort. November is Epilepsy Awareness Month, and I’m sharing this getup to spread the word.
Epilepsy affects 2+ million Americans, and 65 million people worldwide. There is no cure, as of yet. But we’re working on it.
I’ve mentioned my condition here before, and I won’t drone on it. But something quick you can do: Read this Seizure First Aid Guide. 1 in every 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime. If you witness one, you can make all the difference by following these simple few steps.

Thank you for letting me put this all out there today! In happier news, my sweet scarf [that was so cozy to cuddle up with this weekend] is from Shawlsmith London, and they are offering 25% off a scarf of your choice with code SSL25! Purple is the official color of the Epilepsy Foundation, so I have my eye on this one :)
Happy Monday, friends. Here’s to a great week!
