It is crazy how one off day can throw off your entire week. Sundays are my blog day, or at least have become my blog day. This is when I plan my week, write blogs, plan and draft Instagram posts, the whole shebang. The Sunday after Thanksgiving though we drove home from Arizona and when we got home I was so tired from the weekend I promptly fell asleep and did no planning, thus resulting in NOT A SINGLE BLOG POST LAST WEEK. It is too hard to play catch up during the week, I wasn’t even that great on Instagram. That single day caused me to have no motivation all week which is bad considering how good I have been with planning (at least for me). Fast forward to yesterday, I barely had time to plan again! I went out Saturday night for my friend’s boyfriend’s birthday and I didn’t even get home until 3am so of course I slept in and wasted half my day. I am trying really hard to snap back into it and re-motivate myself, especially with the year coming to a close. I will not fall back into bad habits! So here is to a new week, let us make it a good one and drink all of the coffee!
Will you please check out this color blocked, pleated midi skirt I found from WhoWhatWear at Target?! It instantly caught my eye. I saw it and picked it up, then put it back. They I came by it again and touched it, but left it again. Then a THIRD time I picked it up and held it up to myself in the mirror. Okay, okay, SOLD! I had to get it, which surprised myself that I liked it so much. I am not normally drawn to reds but I loved this. There are even red slacks I have my eye on. I think I just love how bright it is, the skirt is such a statement piece. The skirt IS the outfit which is why I paired an off with top with it. The top needs to be simple with this skirt, otherwise I would look like a walking fiesta!
I am absolutely loving how big ruffles are right now. They are just so cute and girly. I feel like ruffles make you look more dressed up than you are, which can be really fun. I got this light pink ruffle top from the Who What Wear line at Target and it is so cute (see I told you I was really into pink tops right now). The ruffle detail adds enough flair to be able to just wear the top with slacks for work, you don’t need to add anything else to look put together. Simple outfits are great to have, especially on those mornings when you’re running late and need to grab something quick to wear. I paired this top with black slacks and leopard pumps (just for fun) and it was so easy and comfy for work. I also want to try it with white slacks and tan heels next. Wouldn’t that be cute?! (It would work with jeans to for casual Friday or the weekend too!) You can find the top here!
