Outfit Post: Topped Off

Mondays are normally tough but this one was especially rough (and then it started raining).

I have to start by saying a huge thank-you for all the kind words and prayers for my grandfather. Papaw is still hanging in there but it doesn’t look like he has much time left. Last week was a tough one and saying good-bye yesterday was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do but I’ll always be thankful that I had that time to spend with him. And after almost a week non-stop in a hospital, I can’t say enough about the amazing work done by nurses, doctors and the assorted team of care-givers.

Getting back into a daily routine seems, frankly weird at a time like this but life does go on and so here I am sitting at my desk tackling work to-do’s and knocking out this blog post. I’m not going to say too much about this outfit because describing what I’m wearing and why seems pretty ridiculous right now but hopefully you all don’t think I look too silly in a hat. Just know that I have been wearing every one of these basics on-the-reg for the last month.

Sorry but that’s all I got for today. Felt like I owed it to give an update, want to get back to normal but don’t really know how to do it right now.

    I’m very sorry to hear about your grandpa. It’s never easy to go through these sorts of experiences 🙁

    I know it’s no consolation for what you’re going through, but I have to throw it out there that I do love your outfit.
