Let The Sun Shine Down From Above

If I look sleepy and kind of bored, it’s because I’m sleepy…and kind of bored. I got a lot of stuff done last night. I updated my Blackberry, which, no kidding all told took about 3 hours. It had stopped receiving e-mails and texts, but updating it seems to have fixed the problem, for now. I did two loads of laundry, changed the sheets on the bed, and did my belly Pilates. Showered, blow dried my hair and read. But I didn’t plan an outfit. And then I overslept.

April 13

I could have done worse! I could have done better, too, but everything was still wet. I half planned three different outfits this morning only to be thwarted by wet clothes. I didn’t take into account that it is Spring now, and the heater was not on all night helping them dry.

I forgot to put on earrings, and I have a big zit right on the front of my face. Some days just don’t go your way. But I had a Weight Watchers breakfast quesadilla and I’ve got free passes to a movie tomorrow night, so things are looking up already.

I can’t wait to show you guys the pictures from this weekend. Colleen got some great shots, and so did Nathan. Nathan actually got some really good shots of Colleen getting good shots.

cute outfit.

if it's any help, i didn't even get a chance to look in the mirror this morning since my kid left me about 3 minutes to get dressed due to extreme cling-y-ness.

have you ever put on pants while juggling a toddler? fun stuff.

I only forget to put earrings on maybe twice a year but it sucks SO MUCH. I feel totally "off" when that happens. :(

Wow, 3 hours on your Blackberry?! I'm glad it works again.

I looked on your Flickr and I loved the photos Colleen and Nathan took of you. I wish someone wanted to take photos of me all day!

I haven't worn earrings for over a week...can't bother, I only really wear studs anyways. I have an allergy problem with my ears, if it isn't good white gold they get infected.
Yay to good breakfasts and updated blackberrys!

Sal said...

Seriously, E, this outfit is fab. Clean and uncluttered, but still 100% chic.

Emily Kennedy said...

Well, you look adorable, and I don't see the zit. So it cannot truly be labeled big.

princesspolitico said...

love the sophisticated print of your dress. and what zit? your face looks FLAWLESS!


Chelsea said...

you look fantastic. especially for your first ideas being thwarted by wet clothes!

and kudos to you for productivity :)

Clare said...

Girl, I love this outfit. And I totally feel the sleepy boredom. Oh, AND the zits. Stress makes me break out, apparently. :(

Anyway, you look darling!

Clare said...

Also, and p.s. our waitress at the Chicago blogger meetup this past weekend looked just like you, and I was so sad that it wasn't you! But just know that your doppelganger was there for ya! :)

Zits know how to ruin a day, don't they!

I think you look great, this is a super cute outfit!

I need to get my butt in gear when it comes to food too. I've been eating like crazy and watching the numbers on my scale go up. My self-control is terrible.

Oooh girl, it must be something with the planets because I am having the same kind of day. Woke up late and my "easy" outfit plan was shot to hell when I realized the pants were in the bottom of the hamper!

This outfit is so laid back and relaxed but the colour sjuts highlight your beautiful complexion.

Cute dress. I like.


Homebody said...

I loathe mornings like the one you had, not that anyone actually likes them, but, y'know - I feel your pain. You do look super cute, though! Great boots! How do you keep your hair from getting all wonky from sleeping on it?

Your Blackberry thing is a pretty common issue among users. Here's what I know about it:

Once a week or so, turn off your Blackberry, pull out the battery, put it back in, and turn it back on. This is what's referred to as a 'battery pull' and 'solves' the problem BBs have of just... no longer receiving data.

There's also an application called "QuickPull Lite" (which is what I use) that will simulate the same thing, and you can set it to perform the simulated pull at, like, 3am (which is what I do).

Yes, I just left you a comment on your other post. Yes, I"m a stalker.

Please tell you got that dress recently. If not, I'm going to need you to send that on over to me pronto.
