Fashion Don't

I was humming along just fine all week until Thursday hit and I spent the day fighting the urge to hide out in my car and take a nap.  Or go home.  Today is better, but as always Friday could not come soon enough and I'm glad it's here.  I'm looking forward to cleaning my house (not really), getting some errands done (not really), relaxing and spending the weekend with MJ.

How 'bout some Friday confessions.

I confess that I think this might be the longest time I've ever gone without a glass of wine.  It's been two weeks.  Send help.

I confess that I let all of my magazine subscriptions lapse and it's like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.  At one time I was up to three and even when it dwindled down to one I just couldn't keep up anymore and was always a few months behind.  If I have a magazine I must read it cover to cover.  I'm allowed to skip articles if I want to but I can't just skim the pictures and be done.  I enjoyed them but getting through each one became a chore so I ignored all of the LAST ISSUE notices from Glamour and let it go.  They have not yet tried to coerce me with a free gift.  Yet.

From the Fashion Don't Files
I confess that I wore a fuchsia shirt, a black and white skirt and black boots to work with Navy Blue leggings and I did not realize that my leggings were not black until I was getting out of the car at the end of the day.   Looking back, it did cross my mind at some point that the black seemed "off" with my boots but I chalked it up to lighting and kept on stepping.  And there I was all excited that my outfit matched my lunch bag which also matches my cell phone case.  Little did I know.  I guess that's what happens when you get dressed in the dark and spend all day under ugly fluorescent lighting.  Hopefully there were no other fashion don't moments this week but there is no way to know for sure.

I really hate getting tagged on Facebook in pictures from high school.  It doesn't happen a lot but when it does I'm mortified.  Appearance wise I was a hot mess.   I mean, HOT MESS.  It's just too embarrassing to have to publicly revisit those images.  I always untag myself immediately and recently just switched my sittings so that I have to approve all tags.

I confess that I didn't know Kate Middleton was pregnant.  The first time around I couldn't NOT know.  It was everywhere.  Either baby number two isn't nearly exciting as baby number one or my head is buried in the sand.   

I confess that I hurt myself getting dressed.  I think that's also a fashion don't.  The only thing worse is probably hurting yourself sleeping and I think I've done that too.  I pulled my shirt over my head and somehow managed to tweak my left shoulder to the point where it hurt for a few days to raise my arm and do push ups.  Getting old is hell.

I still think it looks super cute! I feel the same way about magazines. I just realized it was becoming such a chore and so many articles are online no anyway. Definitely a weight lifted!

p.s. Yay for Friday!!!!!!!!!!

I personally love navy blue and black together ... so I would have thought that this was done on purpose. Looks good to me!

Yeah, I need to stop with the subscriptions too! SO many magazines I have yet to read!

Your navy leggings are nothing, girlie! I once went to church with a brown shoe and a black shoe on since I had them in the same style. ;-)

I couldn't help but laugh. Believe me I have seen worse.

People are actually mixing black, navy, and brown these days. I have only dabbled because of my new two tone boots, but I'm not totally against it. I'm sure no one even noticed. I also don't particularly love my high school photos, but most of them are tolerable. I do need to change my settings to approve pics. At least it gives you more time to adjust, haha.

lol at your outfit, especially not realizing the color of your doesn't look bad at all if you ask me. I have put some outfits together that even had my husband shaking his head and he usually is not even into that stuff. Hope this week is better for you!

O M G, I hate getting tagged in photos that I am not in and then I get notifications when people comment. So yep, I changed my settings too. lol. I'm like you, I looked a hot mess in school but I don't mind it because I think I'm cute now. I'll take the ugly duckling things and werk it. lol.

How did you not know that princess Kate was pregnant, you must have been living under a rock since last September when they announced.
