Just One of Those Weeks...

Most people will tell you that they have their best ideas in the shower. I, on the other hand, spend most of my time trying to picture what outfit I am going to wear for the day (have you seen Clueless? I feel like I have Cher's fancy closet computer system in my head). It sounds easy, but due to my lack of focus before 10AM, my mind drifts to the email I need to send or the person I forgot to call and before I know it the water is off and I still have no clothing plan in sight!

This probably has very little relevance on this blog, but honestly, it has just been one of those weeks where this task of putting top and bottom together seems to be impossible, no matter how long I stay in the shower. I can't even pick an outfit when I am standing directly in front of my closet. And instead of acting like a rational person and putting on the tried and true things I know work well (even if I think they are boring), I attempt to get creative. People like me who get up at the last possible minute leaving only enough time to walk out of the house without any extra task, should not get creative at 7:30AM. It doesn't bode well for the rest of the day.

Ultimately on these mornings, I end up with a floor full of hangers, a daybed covered in failed outfits and I am 20 minutes late getting out the door. TGIF.


  1. Here's wishing you a better week, a new pair of sneakers (okay, okay GYM SHOES), and a fabulous weekend getaway!

  2. this usually occurs for me when i am getting ready to go out for an evening (cause i don't care about how i look at work). i will change my outfit 5-7 times before settling, inevitably on an old standby.

    i have always wished i had cher's computerized matching system. and her closet.
