Feeling lazy




Jacket: Express | Scarf: Express | Dress: Express (option) (similar in another color here) | Earrings: Express | Tights: Target (similar) | Boots: Frye (in Bordeaux)

Welp, the  Cardinals got butchered in game 1 last night. It was painful. And it was all our fault. Three big errors cost us 5 runs in the first couple of innings, and it was all downhill from there. Needless to say, I drank and emotionally ate. A lot. I wasn't hungover or anything like that this morning, just tired and not feeling inspired. I stayed up kind of late watching the last few innings of Game 6 from the 2011 World Series. Kind of like how a lamenting divorced woman would watch her old wedding video heartbroken that her world was over. Yes, baseball is that serious.

You can always tell when I'm feeling lazy because I throw on one of my striped Express dresses and call it a day. It's pretty nifty in the colder months because I can layer stuff on to make it look like I legit planned the outfit. But don't let me fool you. I got ready in a half hour this morning. Skills!
