the temperature was in the negative. it was a cold day. the best thing i could think of doing was staying inside. i wore gap yoga pants and top that my mom gave me for my birthday. i did leave the house once to go to hot yoga at portland power yoga. it was the perfect thing to warm my bones on this chilly chilly day. there is no photo for today because i know you don't want to see me in sweaty gym clothes.
first day of work for the week. i started the week tired and didn't plan ahead. i find it is easy to when you have a shirt that can stand out on its own. you can throw it on with basic pants, in this case, black cargo skinnies, and a solid color scarf and be on your way. i love a long, flowy top. i feel very confident because it hides the parts i don't like and with fitted bottoms, you end up looking smaller. with this outfit, the little bit of color makes a big impact against the black and brown. confident and comfortable is a good way to start the work week.

goodwill was behind this look. affordable, resourceful fashion that gives back to others is always something to feel good about. bright pink and leather made this look really bold and fun.

i had a little breakdown when i was getting ready for work. i was trying to put together an outfit and i didn't feel good in anything i put on. i got a little emotional, but then i was able to pull it together and pull together this look, which i felt really great it. this is also a good example of why you should try to pick out your outfit ahead of time. no one needs to start, or for that matter, end, their day feeling stressed.

i did not feel good this morning and all i wanted was something that would keep me warm and comfortable. this was something i had tried on the day before in the middle of my wardrobe meltdown and it ended up seeming like a good idea for today. i was able to put it on and not have to think about it. i felt better as the day went on. i got the chance to leave work for a few hours and got a much needed nap. (this picture was taken when i woke up) it turned out to be a good, relaxing friday.

busy day. work, family dinner, robyn. when i wake up on saturday mornings and have to go to work, i like to make my morning as easy as possible. this means it no hair wash day, coffee and breakfast are on the go, and i sleep in as long as i can. for some reason when i was waking up, i thought about how i wanted to wear a scarf. i also did not want to be as bundle as i have been. a little spring needed to show through. a lightweight sweater and bright vintage scarf was great for this. by wearing a scarf, i also get to use this scarf ring that was my grandfathers. i hadn't really planned on it, but i did not get to go home after work. i went straight to my aunt's house for the annual dinner for my nana's birthday. i kind of overbooked myself, so after dinner i was late meeting my friend. i got to touch up my hair and makeup before going out for the night, but that was it. i am glad that this was the outfit i chose. we went to see robyn at the state theater. we didn't try to get close to the stage, but there was a lot of people, so this sweater kept me at the right temperature. it was a great show. i ended the night going out for a few drinks. not a bad saturday.

the past few sundays have been spent hanging around the house with terry and for the first half of the day, today was not different. the later half of the day, i went to run errands with my mom and terry headed to boston to see some wrestling at the garden. since i was leaving my apartment, i had to get dressed. layering is key when the temperature doesn't get warmer than the 20's and bean boots are great for navigating through the piles of snow and ice covered sidewalks left behind from the never ending storms.
