Four on Thursday
I took a personal day yesterday and it did wonders. I've felt overwhelmed and anxious lately, so I really just needed a day to relax and get some things done that had fallen by the wayside.
Despite sleeping in and maybe watching "Magic Mike", I did managed to do the huge closet clean-out that I've been wanting to do for weeks now. I took everything (and dear god there is so much) out of my closet, vacuumed in there, and very slowly and deliberately put things back in, making sure to edit as I did. There's now two giant bags of stuff to bring to my next clothing swap, a much more organized space, and a little less stress in my day to day.
It's already working - this morning I put on a cardigan that I had all but forgotten about until I found it yesterday. A cashmere cardigan. Unacceptable.
And the bonus of having a cleaned out closet? More space for new things!
LL Bean Signature Stretch Knit Shirtdress, $99 // Zella Live-in Halo Sunburst Leggings via Nordstrom, $64
1 // Hit snooze a few too many times? Daunted by the thought of combining a top and a bottom? Your solution is the shirtdress. It's comfortable, it looks put-together, and it requires virtually no thought, which is the hat trick of what I need these dark mornings.
2 // I bought Zella's basic black live-in leggings and have only taken them off to bathe, so you know they're good. Sometimes though, I want something a little different, maybe to show off in yoga class. The static print, mesh calves, and neon orange graphic lines are pretty attention-getting.
3 // I have this dream where I'm in a flowy white dress, wandering through the farmer's market, filling this straw tote with fresh vegetables, fruit, and sunflowers. It sounds a lot like a tampon commercial actually. But the bag is solid.
4 // Originally, I thought this dress was navy, which led to a serious heart-palpitation. It's actually black, but it's still pretty cute. The longer length and lace (instead of cut-outs) make this a more age-appropriate sundress for me.
