Fast yet slow

Jan 28 2010

OOTD Jan 28 2010

Outfit Details:

dress - Forever 21, tee - Gap, tights - Joe Fresh, boots - Frye

Do you ever have one of those days when you feel like you're rushing around, yet look at the time and realize that you have actually accomplished very little.

This is me today.

I even tried to hasten things by throwing together an outfit that requires very little thought from me. Sweater dress, tights, boots... done! Then I realized how very cold it was outside, and put on a long-sleeve tee and full slip underneath and for warmth. Then I got Maya dressed, fed (breakfast) and prepared to pack my bag (work stuff) and her baby (toddler stuff) so we could go to Nana's. (My MIL babysits while I work "from home").

In the end, it took us over an hour to leave the house. I did take a few minutes to make some coffee to drink in the car because I cannot start my day without a caffeinated beverage (yea, see my domain name). But still - doesn't it feel like it should take less time? So frustrating.

In other news, Maya spotted her first animal in the clouds on the ride over. It was a piggie. Just one, no other animals or shapes in the sky according to her. It was very windy and the clouds were moving quickly against the sky. Or as Maya explained to me "All the clouds want to go home to their cloud house. It's over there!" And she pointed to a cluster in the sky.

I love this dress! It reminds me of one I saw at myshape.com a while ago and talked myself out of buying about 5 times by now: http://www.myshape.com/calvin-klein-dresses/designers/shop/designer/10380
Kind of a similar nautical/preppy vibe, but too much money for me to justify (right now). Yours is lovely, though, and you wear it well!

I love that dress. Wish I had picked it up when it was at F21.

Lady, that rushing around yet accomplishing nothing has been the story of my week. I'm finally starting to feel less frantic today.

I love this dress!

What a great way to winterize that dress! The tee looks just like another part of the colorblocking—perfect match. :)

Great dress. Love how you continued the colorblocking with the tights and tee underneath. And congrats on the cloud animal! It must be amazing to see your little one develop an imagination and a sense of wonder about the world.

This dress is great! I wish my Forever 21 trips yielded gems like this. :) Just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for an award over at my blog (http://caffeinerd.wordpress.com/2010/01/27/honored/#more-3507). Really am enjoying reading yours!
