Beanie Baby

Let me start out by saying that by the time you're reading this I'm probably on my 5th hissy fit at work. Even though this is another short week because of New Years Day, I am NOT happy to be back in the office after this long holiday weekend. I've decided that I'm going to start playing the lotto once a week because I just don't think this whole "having a job" thing is really something I want to do everyday. It's also probably a sign that I need to get more serious about looking for a new job because although I do really love the people I work with, it's time for a change. Either way, I have to suffer through 3 days of work before I get another day off to ring in 2015. 
Currently all my Christmas presents are still nestled under the tree, so I've been relying on my closet for style until I finally decide to put all my new presents away. By the end of this weekend all the holiday hustle and bustle started to die down and I went back to comfort for running errands and getting ready for the work week. I picked up this flannel button up a few weeks ago when I was in Madewell in NYC. It's super soft and warm, which is perfect for those days when I don't want to wear a big coat while shopping in the mall (why must they always jack up the heat in the mall?). Also, I've been looking for a navy beanie for sometime now but couldn't find one anywhere, just grey, creams and blacks. However, while Christmas shopping for my dad in JC Penney's a few weeks ago I found this one in the men's section!! The inside is fur lined and even though it's a mans hat it fits me perfectly, plus I only paid about $10 for it (score!). It goes to show you can find good products anywhere, even in the men's section!
So please send your positive thoughts my way and pray I make it through work today without falling asleep at my desk of having a complete meltdown, haha! Also if you haven't already, you can read my Christmas week recap here.

  2. Those shoes go with so many outfits, I love them! Beautiful look!


  3. I hate to repeat what everyone else is saying, but I LOVE your flats!! So perfect for fall & winter and WAY better than the typical black or nude flats. Hope you have an incredible New Year's Eve!!
