Maybe it's because of the summer and all it's warm casualness, or maybe it's because I have this little creature whose sharp little teeth and grabby claws can't help but reach for my clothes, shoes, and jewelry (nothing ruined yet)...but I have had zero desire to dress up lately. I want fast, easy style. But still style, nonetheless.
Before the pup, my alarm would go off at 5:50am. I would then press SNOOZE at least twice. Drag myself out of bed, then spend 20+ minutes staring into my closet in hopes something fabulous would appear before me. Then came make-up, hair, wake Steve up, make lunches, eat breakfast, brush teeth and make it out the door by 7:15. I'm not very fast in the morning.
NOW, my alarm still goes off at 5:50am, but I don't dare press SNOOZE. I go straight to the bathroom, do make up and hair while considering what to wear for the day. I get dressed, and if all goes well, sneak breakfast in before taking Miles out at 6:30. We go "outside", go back inside for the AM meal, go back outside for a walk, go back inside to wake Steve up...and complete the morning tasks from there. Still out the door by 7:15.
Dog or no dog, I really should lay my clothes out the night before, this I know. But what looks brilliant at 10:30pm, doesn't always look as smart at 6:15am the next morning. But 6:15am Jill simply needs to trust 10:30pm Jill. It's a process. I'll get there and be better (and better dressed) for it. Until I can get my act together, unwrinkled skirt/pant + t-shirt + cardigan is the go-to work combination.
Miles isn't interested in outfit pictures. He wants that stick/leaf/rock/trash on the ground. And he won't settle until it's in his mouth.
