Today has been a manic Monday and it’s only 11 am.
My mom came in town to visit this weekend and I’m recovering from a weekend of the chaos that ensues when she teams up with my two-year old. Just imagine lots of candy and messes.
But it was a lot of fun and I’m bummed that she’s heading home, although I’m sure she’s happy to be heading back to the sunny, 80-degree Miami weather and getting out of this freezing snow. I’m also a little bummed that I’m not in the final countdown to heading to NYC for Fashion Week. I’m looking forward to following along on the adventures through Twitter and counting down to September already. But enough of my Debbie Downer attitude. It’s the start of a new month, the Ravens won the Super Bowl (Congrats to Ray Lewis, Ed Reed & Bryant McKinnie! Representing the U well!) and Beyonce absolutely killed it last night (how amazing was the Destiny’s Child reunion).
This month, I’m planning on keeping the inspiration posts coming and I’ll also be putting together a little recap of January’s exercise in using what you’ve got – so stay tuned for that. I’ve also got some fun collaboration posts in the works – one of which will be up later this week. I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that it has a little Valentine’s inspiration.
Alas today’s outfit keeps with the Blue Monday theme. All blue everything with a little primary color pop. I know that red, blue and yellow can look a little ABC, primary color-ish but I think when you just add in pops of the primary that it has a playful and casual feel. This outfit is decidedly low-key but with a block heel it gives it just a little bit of polish. I think next time, I’d throw a blazer or cardigan over top to dress it up a little.
Hope your week is off to a good start!
