Back to reality

Well, my fun girl weekend is over! Today was my "Monday" and it kicked my butt. I came into work with 400+ emails in my inbox, two back to back conference calls, then cramming to get a package done for a presentation at noon. No time to even pour a cup of coffee, and I didn't eat lunch until 1:30pm. My co-workers were literally afraid of me. But alas, I survived, and this is what I was wearing in the process. 

Target necklace (option) and belt
JCrew factory tunic (similar)
Express bracelet (option)
Gap maxi skirt (option)
Antonio Melani sandals (option)

I realize that all blogger photos are forced and contrived. I mean, I wish I had a photographer following me around all day taking candid, just-the-right-angle photos of me, but the reality is, it's all staged. Regardless, photographing shoes while you're wearing a maxi skirt/dress is even more awkward. There's just no easy way to do it, but I tried my best, because I love these sandals. And I also love maxi skirts! Today we actually broke 90, which is ridiculous considering a couple days ago, I was freezing my butt off downtown. I was so super exhausted from the weekend, didn't wake up as early as I had planned, and had less than 45 minutes to get showered and photographed before I jumped in the car for work. A maxi is my foolproof go to when I don't want to wear jeans, but definitely want to be lazy. I don't even have to shave my legs for this. ha! But, you know it's true.

Don't forget, if you ever want the Cliff's Notes version of what I'm wearing, just click on the tab up top labeled "Just Outfits."
