Completely Gratuitous Outfit Post & an Attitude Adjustment

After I posted yesterday’s list of what was on my mind {which I quickly realized was just a cover for a long list of complaints} I got in the shower and blasted Sara Bareilles for a little attitude adjustment. I adore her …and her music. And after stating my annoyance with the “singer” in our condo complex, I’m 100% positive I did the exact same thing …but to the neighbors who share a bathroom wall with us …and that could possibly be at least two or maybe three different units. There is no one below us or above us but we do share walls.

The bathroom, specifically the shower, has the best acoustics in the entire house.

Singing always makes me feel better …it’s like screaming, but it sounds so much nicer. Such a free feeling …the same goes for dancing …sometimes I just blare the music and flail around the house and ya know what? I always giggle at myself and end up in a much better mood.

Thank you for all of your lovely and uplifting comments. I never post something with comments in mind and am always surprised by the turnout. It’s nice to know we’re not going through all of this alone and that many of us ladies are exactly the same under our outer shells.

On with the show! {so to speak}

sleepy eyes

What I’m wearing:
Indigo Skinnies: J Brand {Neiman’s}
White American Apparel deep v-neck {that I yank to stretch out the bottom}
Vintage brown herringbone Ralph Lauren blazer {goodwill :)}
Wedge booties: Via Spiga
Scarf: Brown Pashmina
Sunnies: Cheapies from Forever 21
Brass hoop earrings {that you can’t even see}

    I wish I had a patterned scarf with this outfit …I didn’t have time to find one this morning that matched.. ..maybe I need to find a brown-toned patterned scarf.

    Three things:
    1: This outfit I LOVE…. I’m wearing this entire combo & some point.
    2: I got a pashmina for Christmas from a co-worker I despised & now like her a little more.
    3: PMS needs no excuse… it’s part of the women’s right movement.

    Maegan, I am glad to hear you are starting to feel better! I too experience crappy PMS EVERY freaking month… pain in my ass!

    About moving to France to have a baby, I mentioned this to my hubby last weekend. Although we both miss living there, he looked at me as if I was insane. No, not insane, just wanting 4 months+ of paid maternaty leave, a long hospital stay and lovely surroundings to bring our children into this world.

    Love the outfit as always! {Do you use a tripod or is the camera placed on a shelf or something?}

    Good gosh, you hair always looks so full and fabulous. Meanwhile I’m suffering from a major, several-months-long case of flat and staticky hair 🙁

    Your wedge Booties really are Vertiginous (delightfully full of “Designer Arrogance”) , AND I always like the mischievous/”Pin up-esque” way you present it !!!
