Let's Try This Again...

top: gibson // skinnies: h&m+ (similar) // wedges: payless (similar) // 
necklace: crack in the walk // gold clutch: marc jacobs for target


Boy, that Monday sure was a bummer, huh?  They just don't get easier, little chickens.
On days when I need some extra pepping up (like today, I was still kinda in the funk) I always try to go above and beyond in my appearance.  It is a hope that if my clothes and makeup (the hair is usually a lost cause) are on pointe then hopefully my attitude and energy level will follow.  My heart wanted sweat pants, but my head insisted on my new favorite top and red wedges.  If you asked me a year ago if I would be rocking dressy sweatshirts (here and here) with a passion... I would have laughed at you.  This is my third one, and there's no coming back from this. As far as the funk is concerned, I'm a firm believer in the healing power of a good lipstick and a statement necklace.

What do you reach for when you need to cure the blues?
Assuming it is too early in the day for a cocktail... :)

  5. Okay, first, I pretty much always love your hair, so it's definitely not a lost cause.

    Second, those shoes are so cute! As is that top!

  8. I always pick dark skinnies, a knit blazer and flats. I feel like I'm in PJs but I look business casual (at least what is considered BC in my agency)
