It's outfits like these that reaffirm my belief that dressing well can have a noticeable impact on the way you live your life. I wasn't looking forward to work yesterday - our weekend wasn't very restful, I didn't get much sleep on Sunday night, and I knew I was facing a very busy day. But I got up, put on this fantastically comfortable outfit, and felt great all day. Although this week will be crazy (all-day business trip on Wednesday! Flying to Austin on Friday!) I know I'll find myself on the other side of it just fine. I always do, right? And thank goodness I have velvet pants to help get me there.
As I said above, our weekend was really crazy, but there are a few fun things to report - my company Christmas party was a blast, we finished our Christmas shopping, had a wonderful sushi dinner, saw Dallas Buyers Club (which made me feel so homesick for Texas that I wanted to hop on the first plane back), and, oh yeah, my sister got ENGAGED! I'm so thrilled for her and her new fiancé I can barely stand it. Ever since my own wedding two and a half years ago I've been talking about how much I can't wait for my siblings to get married - after all, you get to experience all the joy with way less work. Oh, and celebrating my sister's lifelong happiness will be pretty cool too :). All in all, it was a great weekend for the Ashcroft family.
Have a great Tuesday, everyone!
