Sweatpants Blues. ~ Olivia Gray

It’s getting to be that time of year again.

I can no longer remember what summer feels like—memories of sun dresses and laughing by the pool grow more and more distant.

As the days continue to be grey and unpleasantly cold, I am losing motivation to change out of my sweatpants. Ever.

I know I have a serious problem when I start to justify going to work in my sweats, or not going out with friends because I just can’t be bothered to get dressed.



My rule: If it isn’t warm enough to go outside in my swimsuit, it’s okay to wear my sweatpants.

Or perhaps I should just move somewhere warmer.



olivia grayOlivia does everything possible to disprove the theory that youth is wasted on the young. She is a world traveler, inspired by exotic places and new faces, unknown customs and foreign tongues. She finds herself driven to understand the human condition, and she believes photographs to be a raw documentation of that experience. Her work has included fostering infants in West Africa, island-hopping across South-East Asia, developing rural healthcare in Madagascar, building homes in the Philippines, and sunbathing in South America.
