Last Minute Stripes

Since my daughter has been out of school for her holiday vacation, I've been waking up--every morning--late. Yes...I set my alarm clock, but they shouldn't make those 'snooze' buttons on them. 

So my outfits have been totally looking last minute. I didn't even take a photo of my outfit from Monday because I had so much to do after work.

Here's my outfit today--it doesn't help that the weather is all gloomy & rainy.
sweater & skirt: H&M / leather jacket: gifted to my daughter but she can't fit it any longer (arms are E.T.) / booties: Shoeland / necklace: WalMart / bag: Target / rings: ??

I managed to get these shots in right before the rain started again.


I woke up at 6:45 AM (have to be at work by 7:30 AM), not knowing what I was going to wear, and found this skirt. Sooooo, I didn't feel like searching for a nice blouse or a top period. However, I reached into my dresser and pulled out a plain ole black sweater. It worked for me...*shrugs shoulders*

I didn't want to be totally drab so I added the necklace & the rings.

I'm not feelin' it this week. It's dreary...and I just want to stay in bed in my PJ's with some hot chocolate (preferably the salted caramel hot chocolate from Starbucks), and finish reading my book.

That's all I want to do.

Thursday can't get here soon enough! I ready for my vacation!


  1. Corie, you have the absolute best skirts! Sucka for stripes so this one is tops!

    Last minute and all, you turned your 'drab' to fab!


  2. I actually like drab haha. Great skirt reminds me of "The Nightmare Before Christmas" Love that movie. But I must say I love my snooze button :-)
