Friday Morning Person

Go-to outfits are crucial for days when I feel completely uninspired or simply don't care.  But I don't want to look uninspired or like I don't care, so the go-to's have to be decent.   Yoga pants and a graphic tee might be the perfect go-to for perhaps someone in childcare or house cleaning or yard maintenance or personal training, but that unfortunately won't (shouldn't) fly in an office setting.

Typically by 5:45 Friday morning, I'm so exhausted that my only thoughts are that of Saturday morning when I can sleep myself silly. So I gaze into my closet longing for something cute to magically appear on my body.  Somebody needs to invent a way to do that. I don't want to move.  I just want lean against the threshold and close my eyes for just a few more minutes and when I open them, be fully dressed, my hair and make-up done, and lunches packed.  Come on, we put a man on the moon nearly 1/2 century ago, surely it's time for a scientific breakthrough in this capacity.

Thankfully, Fridays are the easiest to dress for being that jeans are acceptable.  Having little imagination at this time, I reach for what I know works:  Striped, pink sweater and button scarf.  These two items make me happy and complement each other quite well.  Black flats, blue purse, light jacket and bowl of LIFE cereal...I'm ready to take on Friday.  This was last Friday.  Yup, I'm still that far behind.

ugh, i feel ya! i was the exact same way this morning (and every friday that is). you look so much more inspired than i on most fridays. i work in a preschool so often people do wear the yoga pants and t's you speak of. but i try to be at least a little more inspired than that. i have a few go-tos that i tend to throw on when feeling not creative.
so, what do ya say? vintage dress week next week to inspire us and celebrate summertime weather??

What a cute outfit! I love the fun scarf!

It would be nice to invent that machine, how easy it would be to get dressed when you just don't feel like it. Maegan said...

I absolutely agree about needing that scientific breakthrough! And while we're at it, can't someone please invent clothing that is self-laundering? Pretty please?

I love your scarf, by the way! :)
