MONDAY SCARIES BEGONE

Monday morning is always difficult to cope with. I always find that wearing something comfortable and easy helps me cope with the stressful day. As you can tell, I’m a big fan of oversized garments, especially during the colder months. This Pure Jill kimono-sleeve sweater is the perfect piece to help transition from heavy chunky knits to soft and breezy ones. It’s comfy and cozy, but not overwhelmingly warm like our beloved wool sweaters. It has been ideal for the recent weather we’ve been having. I chose the ‘rain heather blue’ color because I have a thing for cool tones, but it also comes in peach heather, pearl pink heather, and sunlight heather. I don’t think there’s a wrong choice, in fact, I may have to get myself the peach one. It’s a piece you can wear now, in the colder and snow susceptible months, as well as in May and June, when the heat starts to rise. I decided to give my denim pants a rest and because I’m not quite ready to pull out my white denim pants, I went with these heather white washed jeans; a cool tone combo. Here goes nothing, Monday. I hope you have a comfy cozy Monday.

Going to work after a long weekend is the ABSOLUTE worst. Fortunately, I have something to day dream about since my weekend consisted of  a beach breeze, hot dogs and wine. I mentioned in my last post that  I’ve been super stressed lately, there are decisions to be made and so much to get into place that it’s hard to enjoy all of the beauty in my life. Sometimes you need to just vent and talk it out and that’s exactly what I was able to do this weekend, as a result I’m feeling refreshed and at ease. So to complement those new found feelings I decided to take it to my wardrobe with this Pure Jill ombre kimono. The ocean hues coupled with its woven linen material makes it exceptionally breezy and relaxed. With something so comfortable it as a no brainer to pair it with boyfriend jeans, they’re right up there on my comfort scale next to yoga pants. And we can’t deny that a cute and easy shoe is hard to come by; it’s true, these Franco Sarto taupe flats have stolen my heart this summer I haven’t been able to wear anything else.

Now, let the day dreaming begin–Happy Tuesday!
