In case you were wondering … Yes, I had to look up how to spell “Pinocchio”. We will get
to that in a second.
Today I slept in, and got out of bed completely determined to get my house clean UNTIL
I sat down at the computer and remembered I had some bloglovin’ to catch up on.
Cleaning motivation = gone.
After I completed my blog roll … I decided Christmas decorating sounded a lot more
appealing than cleaning. I hauled my two large boxes of Christmas decor out of the storage
room and got to holidizing (<– new word. It’ll soon be in Webster’s. Don’t worry about
it.) our home. Since we are going without a tree this year *gasp!* I decided to use some of
our forlorn ornaments and wired ribbon on the fireplace instead. Halfway through my
decorating frenzy, I realized it was time for work. I left my house a mess. Open ornament
boxes, fish line scraps, packing tissue, and open boxes strewn about.
Here I sit in the midst of this Holiday tsunami of a living room thinking about how I still
have to finish that tonight … or tomorrow morning … probably tomorrow
Now, before I show you these pictures … I have to say something. I know what you all
may be thinking. “Kayley, didn’t you just wear that lace top, like, three days ago? And those
socks yesterday? I’m also pretty sure I’ve seen that skirt with that scarf before …”
My answer is as follows: Actually, I wore the lace shirt FIVE days ago. Yes, I wore the
socks yesterday. Did I wash them? Probably not. And for the skirt/scarf thing, you can check
out my outfit from this day.
Now here come my Pinocchio reference. You ready?
*Steps on soap box, clears throat*
I AM A REAL GIRL! Â I re-wear things! In the same week! Before I’ve washed them! And
sometimes, if I’ve found two things that I like together, I will repeat it!
Look vaguely familiar? That’s okay. I’m a real girl … who forgot to put on my lipgloss.
I purchased this belt when I was in high school. Still have it. Still like it. Still wear it.
I also wore the jacketÂ here. I’ve worn it other times but I don’t always feature outerwear
on my blog.
I lost these tights in the abyss that is Kai’s car but recovered them just last week and
wore them here.
Well, there you have it. Do you have certain pieces in your wardrobe that you love so much
you feel like you re-wear them constantly? More power to you – How wonderful that
you have found clothes you WANT to wear over and over again. The key is just finding
new ways to style them so you don’t get stuck in a rut!
Your real girl,
