monday blues

The past few weeks I have been slacking in the blogging department. Sometimes I find that I’m too busy living my life to blog about it—which is a good thing—but also disappointing. From here on out, I’m LOCKING. IT. UP. Posts Monday through Friday. I pinkie promise.

Monday is universally accepted as the worst day of the week, but sometimes I wonder why it gets such a bad rap. Yes, if I’ve been on a fun weekend trip or the weather is gorgeous, it’s depressing to return to the ol’ 9-5 knowing I have an entire week in the office ahead of me. But other weeks, Monday is like an amazing refuge from beer, unhealthy food and sleep deprivation. It’s a breath of fresh air and a return to a healthy—and perhaps a bit “lame”—lifestyle. Being able to go to bed at 9PM without the fear of missing out on fun times is a glorious gift that only Monday can give.

After a gorgeous, sunny weekend on the Vineyard, it’s safe to say I have a definite case of the Monday blues. And as you can probably tell by my bag and skirt, Monday blues come in all shades.

(Whistling? Squatting? The above pic is all sorts of awkward, but I shamelessly think my hair looks phenomenal in it so…it stays!)

This week, my Monday blues are eased by a rainy forecast. I’ll sit at my desk all day with a smile on my face if it’s rainy out. If it’s a sunny summer day though…hives. I literally break out in anxiety-induced hives.

Hope you all have a great day—but as for you, Monday: You, my friend, can kiss my…

  1. chic as hell 🙂

  2. This outfit is gorgeous! I shamelessly may have to steal it, thanks for posting who made all of the items. Love your blog so far!

  3. Love it! Who do you get to take all your photos… that is my biggest challenge! I need to hire a photographer to follow me around.

    • I know, right?? I just need to figure out how to convince a professional photographer to follow me around for free…haha. Whenever I visit my parent’s house I make my mom take the pictures, otherwise I bribe my roommate 🙂
