Wednesday February 10
dress - In Wear (find from The Bay), turtleneck - Old Navy, shoes - Connie
I apologize for the lack of posts lately. The extremely creative title above should be an indication of how tired and uninspired I feel lately. Between doctors appointments, work, Maya's birthday party and hosting Super Bowl Sunday, I haven't had a moment to update this blog.
My outfits have also been pretty uninspired as well. I still feel good in them, but they definitely did not require any creative thought processes. I pretty much spent the days waking up, thinking "What can I throw on in one minute that still looks pulled together". And then I would rely on my standby outfit combinations which I've shared with you all before. Whenever I try to get creative during a busy time and try something new, I ultimately end up frustrated with a huge mess on my floor and late for whatever appointment-class-meeting I have planned. And I still end up feeling like a frumpy mess all day.
How do you keep your outfits fresh and inspired when life gets hectic?
Today was the first time in well over a week that I was able to put some thought into what I am wearing. The dress is a new bargain find ($22) from the Bay and I adore the ruching/ruffles that can be adjusted for what flatters the wearer best. The shoes are another irresistible bargain ($28). I originally bought the brown on sale for $40. When they dropped in price again, I re-bought them at the cheaper price and felt compelled to get the black pair as well. Mary jane heels are a weakness of mine, and I thought these were very Anthro-inspired (yet another weakness). The fact that I can actually walk in these heels and still chase after the toddler sealed the deal.
