Happy Monday! I am amazed at all of the whining and complaining on social media and in general about Mondays. I think everyday has the potential to be a good day, some days are just better than others.
Today was one of those days where it looks beautiful outside, sunny, no clouds, you think it is warm, but once you step outside the wind is blowing like crazy and you are freezing! I can deal with cold, rain, and heat but I cannot handle windy, blustery days. I read an article in a college course about how changes in barometric pressure “wind” can have negative effects on humans. I totally believe it, but I did my best to make the most of this Monday and not get blown away by the 50 mph wind gusts!
I got dressed in this and thought I was good to go, the weather lady on the news said it would be 70 degrees and I thought I would be fine.
Vermillion (orange-red) boatneck three-quarter sleeve sweater from Banana Republic $10. I went to the outlets yesterday and had to buy this sweater, I already have it in navy and white and I love the fit, style, and color! I know I will wear all of these sweaters next fall, winter, and spring so they were a good buy!
Black jeggings from TJ Maxx, $11.99, bought fall of 2012. I love jeggings/leggings/stretchy pants! Talk about comfortable, I feel like I am wearing a pair of yoga pants to work when I wear these and they are so versatile.
Tan Riding Boots from UrbanOG $32.90, gift from my husband this past fall.
I thought I might be a little cold because of the wind so I threw on my favorite leopard print scarf that I bought at my local flea market for $5 last winter. I promise I will do a post on the flea market when I am on summer break. There are so many good deals! I can’t wait, only seven more weeks until I am on vacation!
Well, the scarf wasn’t cutting it. When I put my son in his car seat I realized I was going to need a jacket. Gap jeans jacket bought several years ago at the Gap outlet, not sure on the price. Sometimes getting dressed can be a major ordeal, it’s all about layering and being comfortable. Those were the keys to starting my day in the right direction.
