The Best Laid Plans

Yep, Today is certainly a Monday!!
It started with so much promise...
Woke up extra early because son2 needed to get to school earlier than usual.
Came home and went straight to my yoga mat.
Hopped in the shower and as soon as I got out ~ everything went downhill!
How does that happen??
Murphy's Law or something?
All I know is that by 9:30 I was ready to call it a day.
As you can tell in the pictures the weather wasn't helping any either.
Rainy, gray and cool.
Well, I am happy to report that the day has not gotten any worse!
I have to give a shout out to my great friends this morning that listened to me as the violins were playing in the background. ;) 
You know who you are and that I heart you!!
My outfit didn't turn out exactly like I had it planned in my head.
Mostly because I was running around like a crazy person this morning,
but I think you can get the effect I was going for.

What do you do on days that unexpectedly take a turn for the worse?
Do you just make the best of it, let it ruin your entire day or try and turn your day around?

Oh, I so hope that things are looking up!

I try to stay positive and then sometimes I just give it up and hope for a better day to bless me the next day.

Well, you certainly can't tell that you had a crappy start to your day! That fur vest with the stripes and denim all goes together perfectly! I love it!

Jordan Streetman said...

You matched the textures and prints perfectly! I have been up super early as well and am ready to crash...NOW! At least you looked cute! :)

Sorry your day didn't go as planned, and I hate it when that happens. Usually I just call it quits, get some coffee, some chocolate, and turn on a comedy. Fingers crossed that a fresh start is all I need.

Love your stripes and furry vest!

Well, from the looks of these photos you look pretty darn good :) Sorry to hear you were having a bad day though. Usually, I just try and call it a day and start over the next. I also try to tell myself that there are always others who are worse off than me and it will all work out. Heather

Hope everythings ok :) I love your layering here, so fun!

Rebecca said...

Mondays are tough, but I like your striped sweater!

I'm not a morning person so I usually wake up cranky but by 10 a.m. I'm good to go! I really love this outfit on you- all the elements and the layering really work-in fact I'm saving it to my inspiration folder!

Stacey said...

Love that outfit! The layers make it look cute but cozy.

Shybiker said...

Cute outfit. Nice elements.

When a day goes bad, it's tempting to wallow in misery but I try to pull out of the muck and redeem the day.

Peggy said...

Lovin that vest! Sorry for your bad morning. I saw it on Twitter and wondered. If my day goes bad I get a coffee or go to Target!

Audrey @ Putting Me Together said...

Great outfit! The sweater is awesome. I don't think I could rock fur, but you are rocking it enough for the both of us!
