A Case of the Mondays

Dress: VeronicaM c/o Muse Apparel; Shoes: Stuart Weitzman; Necklace and Bangle: Francesca's Collections
Well, it's safe to say that I woke up today not ready for the week.  I literally laid in bed and had to give myself a pep talk.  Husband and I are in between moving from a tiny condo into a three bedroom house.  (You can't see it, but I'm doing the happy dance.)  Needless to say, my wardrobe and my life are packed up in boxes garbage bags and it has become difficult to find where I even put my underwear.  Don't worry, I found it.  And to top it all off, I slept walked the corner of my eye into the edge of an open cabinet last night, cried like a little girl (which I'm really embarrassed about), and then fell asleep with a bag of frozen corn on my face.  Somehow I am managing to get through this day.  I hope your week is off to a better start than mine!  But if not, vent here!  Ready, go.

Bad case of the Mondays it seems like! And moving is super stressful. I Hope you have a better week! Your necklace and dress are beautiful!

Wanna hear about a crazy start?
I almost fell out of bed last night cause my husband cornered me while snoring (he snored. loud.), today I had lunch with my sad looking parents who informed they had accidentally broken a chicken's leg (note. the poor guy is resting and well now) and a costumer came to the guitar shop today with a rat (sweartogod) asking if we had Michael Jackson's music sheets...cause it was the only thing his rat ever ate....
Dare you to top my Monday...

Spilled fried rice in my car. was more sad about not getting to eat it then stinking up the car. then that made me kinda sad.

But its all good. WORSE HAS HAPPENED. and I love the pattern of your dress! SO pretty!!

Gosh, I hope your eye is ok (sure looks as pretty as ever!) and I also hope the rest of the week is better for you! Moving is such a challenge.

I LOVE the dress.

However, my Monday has been somewhat trying as well. Knock-down drag-out with boo, 8am Criminal Litigation class that I had to drive an hour for, stupid reading, stupid clients and now my pup keeps pooing the floor. I think I'm having some wine for dinner.

Erin said...

Well, you wouldn't be able to tell from the look of the photo. I love the pop of yellow from the necklace.

Jasmine said...

Yeah, I had a pretty average Monday... probably not as bad as yours because it started bad but actually ended up with me getting a lot of stuff done!

You are gorgeous! Love that dress. Saw that same necklace at Francesca's this weekend. Great find!

Thanks for the permission to vent. Today was just down right rough. Well, at least work was. It's over now, and I'm sitting at home relaxing with a nice glass of wine :)

Hope your eye gets better soon.

I got through the day somehow too. I feel your pain. (not literally) We're moving too. I'm not sure how it's going to go with a 1-year old. :)

Rhi said...

Mondays are terrible and yours sounds pretty bad. Moving is always sooo stressful- pretty exciting moving into a nice new big place though, well done you!

Hope your week gets better xxx

Rissy said...

I read about your sleep walking incident when I was on facebook and honestly thought hmm I'd do that when I was awake. Oh and owwie! hope the eye's ok.

Congratulations on the house! you'll be settled soon.

If this is what a bad day looks like for you, you should have them more often! You are so gorgeous!

You can pull of anything!

It's weird how your body responds when you're stressed/sick/tired. I slept walked when I was sick and ended up with crazy things in my bed the next morning!

Hope the move goes well!

Rachael said...

Congrats on moving to a 3 bedroom house! That is something to be celebrated!
Happy dance time!

So happy to see this dress - I have a maxi skirt in the same pattern and I was feeling it was so not "me." Now I love it!

This dress and this pose is awesome and beautiful. Katie, how do you manage to stay so cool, calm, collected, gorgeous, smart and witty ALL THE TIME? Loved reading this particular blog. Besides being beautiful and an avid fashionista, you are quite the writer, too.
