Let me tell you how much I did not want to get up this morning. After a wonderful time in San Diego celebrating Brian and Lauren’s wedding, and enjoying time with the in-laws, we then boarded a flight last night with a 2 and a half hour layover at LAX, not arriving to Seatac until 11:50 last night putting me in bed at about 1:30 when all was said and done. Way past my bedtime! And I still have to unpack when I get home tonight.
But the positives for today are that I have 150 blogs to read that Bloglovin keeps track of for me so I am not short on Monday entertainment, I get to watch last week’s What Not To Wear episode while I unpack tonight, and the guest post for Erin at Mom’s Have Style Too was just fabulous today and a good reminder that being happy is a choice! Definitely check it out.
This morning I basically slept in as long as possible, it was cold and grey out, and I didn’t really feel like putting together an outfit. When I am feeling like this I think the best thing to do is just keep the outfit simple and accessorize! Dark blue jeans and a well fitting white or black tee are a great canvas for some fun shoes, and a scarf or fabulous necklace and that is all it takes to look put together! Style doesn’t have to be complicated. And I happen to be lucky enough to wear the same shoe size as my mother-in-law and she brought these shoes all the way from New York for me – I love a printed pump!
My in-laws did get stuck in San Diego for an extra day due to the hurricane, but fortunately the only thing that went wrong at their home was the power being out, and no problems with electricity at their Brooklyn butcher shop which is great, because they have a lot of product to lose with no refrigeration. Hope any of you affected by Irene are ok and have had minimal damage to deal with.
