clothes confessions...

Confession - I've been a bad picture-taker this past week. Okay, not entirely true, I probably took 100 pics (or more) of mini-me over the weekend. Not so much with pics of my outfits.
Here's two whole outfits.. 2 out of 7 isn't bad? Right?

Easy outfit = maxi + jean jacket + scarf
cute and comfy for the win!

Yes, I wear this jacket all the time... it's too cute not to

One of the 1000000 pics of mini-me taken this weekend

Another confession - there's no pic from Monday because I wore jogging pants, a ponytail and no makeup. I didn't leave the house so it wasn't the end of the world and in keeping with being kinder to myself, I'm allowed a frumpy day every now and then.

And the big confession: I am confident we have more clean, unfolded laundry in the house than in our closets and dressers combined. Picking outfits for the next few days will likely mean pulling whatever doesn't need ironed from one of the many stuffed (to the brim) baskets. UGH.

Yes, I could be folding right now, but work has been crazy, I'm exhausted and at this point, some downtime is more important than folded laundry. Well, until tomorrow morning when I am frantically rifling through the basket trying to find something that doesn't look like it's been squished and twisted with the rest of my wardrobe for the past week. 

Inspiration for me this past week
I got the sweetest card from one of my bestest girlfriends. It was for no other reason than to say that she values me and our friendship. I can't tell you how much that made my day. 
This has inspired to me to try and let people know that I value them and why and when they least expect it. 

I'm keeping this short because I'm not feeling very eloquent today. Hoping I have more time to write soon!

Okay... one more mini-me pic, my fav from the weekend.


  1. Your daughter is so cute - love her face in that second pic! Isn't it nice to get an actual card from someone? Everything is digital these days - but holding an actual piece of paper that someone took the time to send to you is really nice :)!

    1. She's a little ham!
      I know, getting a real card, and for no reason, was so special! Now if only I could be on the ball enough to send some of my own!

  2. Hey we both took the same amount of pictures this past week. I've been repeating so many of the Spring Challenge outfits that it's just silly to take another picture of it. At 4:30am, at least something is in my head and it's that list! :)

    1. yes, thankful for having a whole set of outfits that have already been put together for those nights where I don't get nearly as much sleep as I want/need!

  3. Both of your outfits are really cute! We all need a day to lounge once in awhile and not worry about anything else! I don't mind folding laundry, it's the putting away that I don't like. I have it stacked up everywhere and it's on my list to take care of today. Your daughter is adorable!


    1. thanks Jill!
      I finally folded the mountains of laundry yesterday. Now the problem is I have a huge pile of dirty laundry :( never ends!


Love hearing from you!
