Happy Monday! Why is it that people hate Mondays? They get the Monday Blues. Is it because you have to go back to work after a couple of days off? Is it because it means you have to work 5 more days before you can get another day off? What is it? Haha, who am I kidding, that is exactly why most people get the Monday Blues! I try to look at Monday as being the fresh new start! Trust me, Monday mornings are a drag for me too but I try to create short term goals I want to accomplish for the week on Mondays and as I knock them out, my week gets smoother! Speaking of Mondays, do you plan your work outfit on Sunday night or Monday morning?
The most outfit planning I do on Sunday night is in my head lol! I’m pretty sure pre-planning my looks for the week would make my mornings so much easier but I guess I’m a glutton for punishment! Perhaps I’ll try to implement pre-planning looks in the New Year! Nevertheless, on most days, I can throw together a look with the best of them, last minute! This look here, I was pretty proud of!
I’ve had this vest for a couple of seasons now but I think it may be timeless. I’ve seen it on so many people this fall. It’s warm but not too heavy, and it’s a great layering piece. Not to mention it pairs well with a lot of looks! And let’s not ignore my new favorite patent leather booties that I raved about in my last style post! I love these pinstriped grey pants for this look as well!
You know what else makes the Monday Blues much better? A nice cup of coffee! It is a necessity to get through the dreaded first day of the week! Are you a coffee or tea person? I like both but coffee warms the soul, especially on these chilly winter mornings!

Here’s to walking into Monday with a smile and a goal-driven spirit! Hey, Christmas is a week away! For me, that’s reason enough to be happy through this week!
How do you get over your Monday Blues? Let me know in the comments below and in the meantime, have a fabulous week!
OMG I used to hate Monday’s and yep it was because of the crummy jobs I had at the time. But now — even if things aren’t great — I’m ok with them. It’s just another day to kill it and get work done so I’m col with them. And I’m the kind of person who wakes up and runs to the closet in a panic and grabs anything to wear. I think I can be a bit more like you and AT LEAST plan it in my head the day before! Love the outfit per usual!

Thanks girl! I try to be okay with Mondays. I think for me, it’s just the fact that I actually have to get up after sleeping in for 48 hours! Anywho Happy New Year!
