Now that tights are back in my life, they are back with a vengeance. Love these polka dot ones from Target. I am also currently loving this color combo: purple and gray togrther cannot go wrong. There's just something about it that is so right!

This fun outfit aside, I'm having a pretty crappy week. I'm trying to stay positive and not be a negative Nancy but it's so hard sometimes. Besides not feeling well physically and other troublesome personal issues I am dealing with, I am just feeling down and off.

Not to mention with all the craziness going on I haven't worked out in almost 2 weeks besides 1 walk I took on Monday. If I knew ahead of time I was going to be taking 2 weeks off from exercise I would have just enjoyed it and vowed to resume regular activity as soon as possible. But when I keep trying and things keep getting in the way, it's frustrating.

Plus, daylight savings hasn't helped with my listlessness. I love the extra sleep, but getting dark at 5 is seriously throwing me for a loop this time around. My motivation level is lower than low. Making hot chocolate is about the peak of what I'm inspired to do. Anyone else dealing with the winter time blues? Everything seems to get so...complicated this time of year.

They say positivity begets positivity, but it's hard to stay upbeat when my natural instinct is to venture over to the dark side. I know how much I have to be grateful for, and I do take time out of EVERY day to acknowledge and appreciate those things...It's just hard to write a post pretending like all is well when that's not always the case. The truth is, I've made some pretty big mistakes recently that are definitely affecting me - even days later. I know that no one is perfect and I could not be FURTHER from it, but I find the hardest disappointments to deal with are when you disappoint yourself. Please excuse the melancholy tone, but today- 11/16/11 at 11:08 - this is how I'm feeling. That's the beauty and curse of documenting your life. It can take you back to the wonderful times and also transport you back to the low points. That's the danger of putting it all out there. But, I thank you all for reading.

As Scarlett would say, Tomorrow is another day... until then!


  1. This is such a cute outfit! I'm all about grape and plum colors so I love it! :)

  2. @ jessica- thanks!

    I think I'm going to be repeating this combo a lot!
