Work Today, Dress Tomorrow

6.18.13-4

Today was one of those days that you see coming from a mile away. It’s the ‘everything I’ve put off until now’ day. And let me tell you, there has been a lot of put-offs. (Did you ever see that episode of Parks and Rec where April scheduled all of Ron’s appointments for one day and he had 99? That’s today.) Needless to say today is busy and I had a new dress in mind this morning but let’s be honest — a nice dress is not for hard work. Therefore I will wear jeans today, work hard and then I’ll wear a dress tomorrow. You can fill in the blanks from there.

Top: J.Crew (but technically it’s my husband’s shirt)

  3. I’m totally having that kind of day too! Bleh. I’m giving myself little rewards after finishing each task, like playing an iPhone game or eating a chocolate peanut butter cup. Anyway, I love this outfit, but that’s really no different than how I love all of your outfits. Your shoes are adorable!

    I love Parks and Rec! I think you should keep putting everything off, stay home and watch reruns. Either that or get Leslie and the rest of the Parks Dept. to help you with things. Also – great shoes.

    I do the same thing! Days including tons of work should only be jeans days. Dresses are for non-busy days involving minimal movement.
