wake up.

It's only the 4th day of this new year and I'm already sinking into the hole of bad attitudes. I just want to curl up into a ball in bed all day and not come out. It's hot. I'm looking outside thinking is it really January? 

And there is so much uncertainty in my life that my hair is falling out. Sometimes I think it would be easier if I knew how to turn my brain to silent. Is there a mute button somewhere? Anywhere?

 Over the break, I was like this. Blissfully unaware of the tightening of clothes as I spent my time with good food and even better company. But I am resolved to never let failure defeat me so I won't. Even harder, I will never let bad attitude defeat me.

I planned on being fancier this year. A little more put together in my dress so hopefully my mind follows suit. I tried, I really did.
But then, I checked the weather and decided that being fancy is not on the agenda for today. So I quickly changed into cropped pants and a blue tee. 

I think I'm more like this..
As much as I love Carrie's sophisticated style, I love her in casual clothes.Pairing an oversized sweater with Manolos.

But I'm ready. Armed with an apple and lots of water, I plan on taking on my bad attitude with ... resolve!


  1. Girl never silence your brain...I like what you think! ;) You are so cute in that skirt...oh CB! Love her!

  2. I love Carrie's style too! I guess you can always save the nice dressing to the better weather. I'm sorry you're having doubts about your job, I know how it feels to spend a huge part of your life doing something you're not too fond of. I hope you find something that you do enjoy in the new year :) xo
