Ups and Downs

Aug 20, 2012

AugustBlog146-1AugustBlog113AugustBlog129It's Monday and I'm trying to find ways to drown in my coffee, my nose is sunburned, and I have back to back meetings that will definitely cause eye twitches later in the afternoon.

But once 5:00 rolls around I'm going to go vintage hunting, sit in a cafe and drink frothy coffee and write stories, and snuggle with my boyfriend under strung Christmas lights while we watch boy movies.

There are ups to every down. What are you guys up to?

Dress- vintage
Shirt- thrifted
Belt- j crew

  1. That dress is beautiful! I love how you've layered the shirt under it, too. Now work's over, I'm about to snuggle and watch Pretty Little Liars!

  2. I SO feel you as usual. I had chugged a starbucks double shot before my work computer could even finish logging on today. Then i drank the dreaded work coffee on top of that. The one good thing about Mondays though for me (and coming back from vacation) is getting to catch up on blogs! Your after work plan sounds amazing. Mine may very well involve Little Caesars judging by how this day is going so far.
    Love this vintage dress and I extra extra loved your mint and plaid from last post, along with your work story- mine is freezing too AND NO BLOW DRYERS EITHER.
    Have fun snuggling after work with the bf, I just asked mine if we could make a teepee in the living room...

  9. What a lovely dress! I sympathize with you, when I had an 8-5 job I couldn't wait until 5 pm came and I could do something more interesting. Frothy coffee always helped too! x

    Mondays are always busy - I'm in client meetings! Wish I could vintage shop today - that'll have to be later this week!
