Good Enough for a Monday

Today is an errand-running, task-filled, to-do list conquering kind of a day. A necessary evil kind of a day. A day where you'd rather watch television in your pajamas but if you do you'll hate yourself for the rest of the week because nothing is done. Not that I've ever done that before; I have no idea what regret feels like. So when I got dressed today, I looked at myself in the mirror and nodded "it's good enough for a Monday." Then my husband asked me if I was talking to my reflection again. Things get awkward when I forget I live with another person. 

And yes, my hair is a little bit red now. Over the weekend I spiced it up a little. Sometimes you just need a small change. But I've been instructed to not wash it until tomorrow morning, so a bun it is for now. But tomorrow -- tomorrow will be the big reveal. You'll be waiting on pins and needles I'm sure.

  4. Definitely good enough for a Monday! Much better than my leggings and cozy sweater -- turns out I'm already dressing for Thanksgiving.

  5. Um I'll be waiting on pins and needles... is that weird? I love when people change their hair color, I vicariously live through them since I have super dark brown hair and can't pull off anything but my natural color.

  11. Thats way better than my Monday outfit.
    I'm still in my pajamas but I'm not gonna hate myself because I've earned it. I think? Except I do need to go to the bank. Damn.

    when i saw on instagram that this was your "getting shit done" outfit, I was quite impressed.  especially that you wear heels to get shit done.  you mean business.

  64. I recently went red too! It fades crazy fast but it is fun. I only wash it twice a week although I could get away with one if I used my dry shampoo more, I guess. And I use red shampoo/conditioner. Mine is only a semi-permanent though.

  65. I love the layers and texture in this outfit. The sweater is super awesome!
