A Method To The Madness!?!

I try to lay out what I am going to wear the night before...try, being the key word.  Usually, I think about clothing options and combinations right before I go to bed at night.  I take a very short stroll through my closet (the closet is pretty big, but the floor is very hard to find for a stroll) and start thinking about what I might wear the next day...
Come morning, depending on how many times I have hit the snooze button and how many boys there are still sleeping in my bed, I try to conjure up my visions for outfits that have been swirling in my head all night.  I admit, most mornings start with the one piece I had been thinking about last before I fell asleep, if I can remember, and I just kind of thrown on the rest of the pieces of that days ensemble.  Sometimes it works, sometimes, well, it is just a mess...so is life!

Worn to work Tuesday, May 1




Jeans-Level 99/Blazer-Gap/Flats-Payless/Jewelry-Black Sheep, F21, Target

The thought behind this outfit is as follows... woke up, hit snooze, 5 times, hop out of bed realizing that I should have been up about 35 minutes ago...check calendar...no meetings..so jeans it is...remember chunky necklace that I was thinking about last night...decide all black is the easiest/laziest way to go to showcase the necklace...throw it all on.  Shoes...hmmm...cannot find the other zebra print flat I had been thinking about...ok...there are two matching shoes that happen to be green...done...make sure boys are dressed and run out the door...forgot my coffee...


Worn to work Monday, April 30


Skirt-Target/Sweater-Old Navy/Wedges-Urban Outfitters/Jewelry-DIY, F21, Target

I wanted to wear this skirt...I am madly in love with the color.  I wanted to wear a top...not to dressy...long sleeved for the air condition office...wedges were already by the front door...and this colorful mess was conceived and implemented...

Just a sneak peak into the madness...

Well, you look great - and you make me feel better about my methods for outfits! I should have bought that stripey sweater when I saw it on clearance... oh, regrets. Damnit.

Those green shoes are so cute! You did a lot better than I usually do when I'm running late and have to throw something together in the morning.

Ooh I really like both outfits! I pick out outfits the night before out of habit---always did it in MKE bc the thought of getting up earlier than 5:15 was too horrible. Usually is an under-a-minute process, though ha, so not sure why it feels so necessary that it be done!

If I had the chance to raid your closet, that blue skirt would be the first thing I would be reaching for. I love it! Especially paired with the bright top. It's a great use of color. I think that getting outfits planned out for the week always requires a little madness. It makes for the best creative combinations. :)

I love those green shoes. I have to pick my outfit before bed, or I'll spend 30 minutes staring at my closet in the morning.

Haha! Your morning sounds a bit like some of mine have been lately. Like yesterday when I wore my black & grey ensemble. lol

Those green flats are so cute!!

Wow! Love the necklace, I can see why you started the outfit with it:) I lay awake at night thinking about outfits too...or at least I used to pre-baby...now I totally pass out once i lay down!!
