Shading and Stippling











Tee: Ross (similar); Skirt: Ann Taylor (on sale); Heels: Michael Kors (25% off); Coat: c/o Chicwish; Necklace: c/o The Pearl Source

Oh, brother. What a Monday. A classic Monday, really. The one where everything irritates you, your feet inevitably get soggy from some un-anticipated puddle. The one where you can't get anything done at work despite needing to get everything done. The bad-headache Monday. Burnt food Mondays. No lunch Mondays. Uncomfortable t-shirt Mondays. I could sincerely go on and on about how atrocious all Mondays are and how they should be scrapped as a general rule, but I suppose I can stop and focus on some of the good things about this Monday: it's over.

Well, it's over, and I made a delicious dinner tonight of ravioli, honeycrisp apples, walnuts, and elk sausage. Or that I had a relaxing glass and a half of Pinot Noir from this weekend's wine re-stocking adventures. And I am now cuddled in bed with the absolute dark outside encroaching in on the windows, a cat by my side, watching Gilmore Girls. It's the end of every Monday that is the best part of every Monday. I hope you all had lovely ends to your terrible Mondays as well!

  1. Aw! Yeah Mondays generally suck...at least you looked good though! That skirt looks flawless on you and the coat is so pretty is wavy (I feel like that's not the right adjective).
