Manic Monday

You know the feeling. That craziness that comes the week before Christmas when all the gifts should be bought, food planned and parties are in full swing.  It is that ‘Manic Monday’ feeling that lasts all week long.  Yup, we have it here too.

I thought shoving the teacher gifts out the door last Friday would lessen the load, silly me. Needless to say, workouts are missed to have last minute lunches with friends.  Shopping takes the place of deadlines and long nights ensue.  Dashing about and instagramming my looks is the best I can do.


Errands and lunch on Monday.


70 degrees in December means breaking out the beloved plaid ballet flats!

    I would never guess that blouse is from Target. It is so sophisticated and I love the adorable flats. Oh and I have been having a long manic Monday for the last couple of weeks.
