flutter sleeves and cocoon cardigans

This outfit is from a few days ago, and to be honest, I threw it on as an after-thought as I was running out the door. Well, not actually in the middle of running out the door because that would be indecent, but you get my meaning.

I don't know if you all realize this, but when it comes to getting ready in the morning, I have terrible time management skills. If there was a "get out of bed and dress yourself in a reasonable amount of time" portion in Legends of the Hidden Temple, my team would lose. The Blue Barracudas would have such low morale, it'd break Kirk Fogg's heart.

  1. What a fun dress on you - one bad thing about fashion blogging is totally noticing and newly wanting things I didn't look at twice before!

  2. 1) I LOVED Legends of the Hidden Temple when I was younger (and I may or may not be guilty of watching parts of episodes on Youtube every once in awhile)!

    2) I have horrible time management skills in the AM too. For some reason, I think it's ok to take five minute breaks here and there to watch TV/check email even when I'm running late.

    3) I've been MIA for awhile, so this is the first time I've seen your new set-up. Love all the pics :)

  3. Cute dress! And your nails look really cool! I also suck at time management in the morning. I am NEVER ready even a minute before I absolutely need to leave. I need to work on that because it sure would be nice to relax and eat breakfast at home rather than while driving!

  4. I take a lot of time getting dressed in the morning, so it's fortunate for me that I don't have to be anywhere THAT early.

    This outfit is lovely! I really LOVE that oversized cardi! And like everyone else who commented, your nails are just fab!

  5. Argh..the problem with me in the morning is that i really WANT and NEED that extra 10 mins of sleeping in, hence, I run out of time dressing and brushing my hair - yep true.
    You look so darling cute in that dress. And I love your nails too.

  6. i was telling my friend the other day that every day its harder to get up in the morning - looks like there are a lot of us suffering form morningitis!

    amy i love your nails, how did you do them!?

  7. Hahaha, seriously loved the Legends Of A Hidden Temple reference. Hysterical, and YES! When it comes to getting ready to go in the morning (or at anytime, really) it's like I swear I get entered into this total time-suck in my bathroom. Never fails, as soon as I leave my bathroom it's always 20 minutes later than I thought it was. Oops.

    All the hairspray I accidentally inhale, maybe?

  8. I love that cardigan. It's awesome on ya.
