Dress Well: Serious Summer

Yesterday I had a LONG list of things to accomplish at work, and I thought that dressing like a businesswoman (a very casual businesswoman, but still a businesswoman) would help me focus. And you know what? I was totally right. Instead of dressing for the job I wanted, I dressed for the productivity I wanted - maybe there's something to be said for the role of slightly uncomfortable clothes at work. If you aren't comfortable, you most likely want to leave sooner, and when you want to leave sooner, you get your work done faster, right? I feel like someone has probably written a psychology paper about this before.

Thankfully, I was able to clear a lot of things off of my to-do list yesterday....still somehow didn't seem to put a dent in today's to-do list. But that's okay! I've got lots of fun things to look forward to this weekend - dinner with friends, a baby shower, time spent with my husband, and naps. Lots of naps. As I always say - I lead an exciting life.

Have a great weekend!

Dress Well: Fall

Yesterday when I was getting dressed I went through the usual conundrum - I have tons of clothes, and yet I feel like I have nothing to wear (it's probably the least-sympathetic conundrum ever). Since it was the first day of fall AND it was warm, I decided to pull out my good old paisley corduroy secret shirtdress. Every time I wear this tons of people compliment me on my skirt, but this skirt has a surprise bonus feature - an attached shirt! You know I'm all for simplicity, so the long and the short of it is that I'm SO glad fall (and deep red paisleys and one-piece wonders) are back!

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
