Back to the grind

Yes. I said it. Back to the grind of the work week. I've been spoiled the past few days of holiday fun with no commitments. Nothing but chillaxing with my hubby, family & friends. It was hard to haul myself out of bed this morning as I fumbled through my dressing room for the perfect Monday outfit. Is there even such a thing as a perfect Monday outfit? Well I tried to put one together if there was ever one that exists. The color grey keeps lurking back into my life. It's such a dull, plain and simple color yet it goes so well with mixing and layering. How could I ever let it leave entirely? Never!

It was also hard to get out of my yoga/knit jersey/stretch cotton wardrobe I've become accustomed to. In my attempt to pleasing every part of me and and coming out of my lazy bubble I chose a comfy work outfit that suited my mood and my desire to look appropriate on my first day out into the real world. Oh holiday world is going to be missed so bad! This outfit was carefully chosen to NOT include my rain boots w/ fleece liners or my sheep skin lined boots; two of my bff's the past few days. The sun was out and it told me the cold was still here but the snow will soon be gone. The warmth and coziness in what I chose had to be #1 priority today.

Layering my grey and black tones and decorating my neck line with soft tones that picked up other colors in this look was the success to my departure to work.

On me: BCBGeneration knit turtleneck, Express knit cardigan, Anne Taylor Loft trousers, vintage marble beaded necklace, BCBG purse and H&M wedged shoes.
