Hi everybody! Welcome to Tuesday. I know you’re probably less surprised about the natural progression of things, that I am. But at this point, I am grateful for every day that I survive and wake up so see another one. Just kidding. There I go complaining again. But actually, life is good. I had a productive day working, going to the gym and having dinner with my employees. They spoiled me with food and a present, so I guess that means they really like me! Plus, there are only three more days of work to survive until Christmas. PLUS, there are only 10 days left in the entire year and of this project. Yep. Life is good!

All that aside, I am still pretty darn tired. My busyness, doesn’t really end until January 4th. I work every day before and after Christmas Day, including part of New Year’s Eve. Off New Year’s Day and then hard at work for inventory on the 3rd. Which is just as hectic, if not moreso than the holidays. In the meantime, I decided that I’m pretty much in Power Save mode, human version. I get up, go to work, go to the gym, do the blog, go to bed and that’s about it. Conserving and recharging wherever possible. No extra energy getting expended on say going out and doing things, Facebooking, talking to people, running errands, doing chores, thinking, brushing my teeth… Just kidding. Maybe. Which is why I should probably end the typing here. I gotta get up at the crack of dawn tomorrow to do it all over again. Wheeeee!

So lacking for time, have I been, that I’ve kind of lost track of anything resembling a plan for outfits. I’m not gonna lie, I pretty much just threw this together this morning. I didn’t feel like I could go the rest of the year without one more turn for the cute lacy dress that I scored earlier this fall. But since it’s now later in the year, I thought it might be more timely to try this new-fangled sweater-over-a-dress thing that I’ve been seeing out and about. Okay really just on other blogs. I don’t actually get out much, remember? I just pretend like the internet is the real world. The people are cooler and my social awkwardness is far less apparent. So everybody wins. And! Everyone is so well-dressed!

So I thought this was an interesting pairing of the black and cream. I was exchanging some things today at my store and one of my staff noticed that I’ve started to gravitate towards a bunch of black for my wardrobe once again. It’s true. Prior to this project I held a very deep and meaningful relationship with the color black. It’s an odd signal of slippage back into normal life that I’m picking it back up again. But I also think that dark neutrals are just nice in the winter, no? I promise not to shun color too terribly much once this is all said and done. However, for today, I liked the classic pairing. A very vintage-y look overall, I thought. And I like it.
