Daily MelWear: Monday, Monday

Wow. I had a post all written out, ready to go, and Blogger just ate it. I'm annoyed. I don't have a whole lot of time to re-write everything, so I'm just going to recap as much as I can.

I had a great weekend with my daughter. We saw Tangled, went to dinner with friends, played at the mall, had ice cream and just spent lots of fun time together.

"They" keep saying it'll get easier, but it's still just as hard to say good-bye to her as it was the first time. And I still cry.

Sorry for not posting on Thursday (although I'm sure my absence wasn't all that noticeable!). I had an emergency come up and wasn't in the mood for taking outfit photos. The emergency also brought me to the conclusion that while I do really need a new laptop soon and a camera, I'm not going to be able to afford either one of those for a while. So I wait. And once I buy a card reader, I can hopefully borrow my dad's camera for the time being.

Our boss sent us a text last evening to let us know that we can wear jeans today if we don't have any errands to run at the main medical plaza.  Our errands will wait. :)

I only watched the first few minutes of the Golden Globes last night before I had to go to bed (I was exhausted!) so I missed most of it.

Tell me what your favorite joke/quote/comment was! And tell me about your weekend!!!

Today's outfit:
Skinny Jeans: Kohl's
Purple Tee: Target
Black Sweater: Plato's Closet
Gold Belt: Charlotte Russe
Leopard Flats: Target
Flower Ring: Forever 21
Turtle Earrings: Gift from my mother-in-law


  1. Great layers today. I wish I could wear jeans to work.

    I'm glad to hear you had a fun weekend with your daughter! Hope things keep getting better :)

  2. Girl you need to eat you are widdling down to nothing! I had a wonderful weekend too!

  3. Sounds like a good weekend. We experienced a bit of cabin fever so my son and I hit the playland at the mall as well! No ice cream for us (too cold) but we did hit up Starbucks---my son is addicted to their rice krispie treats.

    It is had seeing your little one go off to be with the other parent for a few days. I know it doesn't feel like it will get easier, but remember this change is still very new. Hang in there, Mama. :)

  4. I did notice you were gone, and did miss you!! Hope the emergency wasn't too... emergency (words don't come to me in the morning)

    I would LOVE getting texts that said jeans day! Of course, every day is jeans day in my world, so maybe I need someone to text me to say: "It's dress day!!"

  5. I love the accessories here - the shoes and ring are great!

  6. I love the layering but, I think my favorite part of this outfit are those shoes!

    I can't believe you have to work today! At least you could wear jeans...

  7. I am loving the layers girl!! I understand about fun weekends with the daughter. They are the best. I love the shoes also.

  8. Fun flower ring!

    Glad to hear you had a good weekend!!!

  9. I love the ring, I have been searching for amazing statement rings lately.

    Had a lovely family weekend, I didn't do very much work, instead made some time to play with children.

  10. so glad to hear that you had a good weekend! I love the layers today and yeah for jeans at work. Love the added fun with the leopard shoes!

  11. Jeans at work make the BIGGEST difference in the world. It makes me feel like the that day is going to be more relaxed and less stressful cause you're wearing something that is comfortable throughout the day.

  12. I am a big fan of those shoes...I love a little leopard print every now and then!

    Also, I'd just like to say (from reading a few earlier posts)that I think you take better pictures with your iPhone than I've managed to take with any type of camera I've been able to get my hands on. So, I wouldn't worry about it too much :)

  13. You look great! Rockin' the skinnies!

  14. You look fantastic!!! LOVE this look - you really rock jeans!!

  19. I love those flats paired with the jeans!! Too cute! And yay for having a fun weekend with your daughter! And I totally understand about the budget situation... I probably need a new laptop too, but its going to have to make do for a while (or until it just fails...). :)
