You know those days that you get up and are still just wiped out because, say for example, your puppy is having intestinal issues and she needed to go out twice last night, which is still better than the alternative, and you just didn't get enough sleep and it certainly wasn't continuous good REM sleep, and your daughter who stayed up way too late on Saturday night is still being a total crankpot and refusing to finish her homework that she *should* have done yesterday but was too tired to? Yeah...that was my morning. And it has inspired me to create a new category, which will now be known as "It's Better Than Sweats". Some people can rock the yoga pants or the Juicy sweats and be cute, adorable, well put together. Usually when I have them on for the whole day, I am sick as a dog or just bone-tired, so I don't have that bright sparkle in my eyes. Therefore, it turns shlubby. Oh seriously, what's up with the dog imagery? I must be tired.
Today...(read above story and just laugh at me... go ahead, you might as well, someone should enjoy it) It was gray and chilly this morning. But I was also going to volunteer at school like I do every Monday, so I felt like a sloppy sweatshirt and grubby sweatpants was not the way to go. For warmth? Beechwood Michelle cardi, cozy but thin enough for May. Tired? Keep everything else simple - white tissue BF vneck tee, jeans, loafers (yeah, totally ditched the Joleys before we went to the bus stop), but amp it up a little with the Dina hoops and the fireball necklace. Maybe if I had more energy, I would have layered another necklace or something, but this was good enough. I do like the crispness of the white tee with the beechwood cardi. Although I will note for the record that I have not yet resorted to my usual lazy-day trick of the ponytail - most likely because I just got it cut last week.
So Polyvore set for today: (again, as I am discovering, the library cardi could very easily swap out for the beechwood Michelle)
