outfit of the day(bird): multi-tasking

i am the queen of multi-tasking. i have always been pretty proud of this fact. the only two things (that i know of) that i can't do at the same time are listen to someone talk on the phone while listening to someone talk right next to me. maybe it's just because that's plain rude of the person right next to me. i'm on the phone buddy, can't you see that?

 so the other morning, you will understand that i was quite proud of myself. it was 5am. i had just woken up so i could work out. (yep, working out and catching up on old episodes of grey's anatomy is also one of my envious multi-tasking skills.) of course i have to pee and brush my teeth before i work out (not at the same time...those are two tasks that should be done separately – although in a time crunch, i will admit i have thought about it before.) so, while i was sitting on the toilet, i looked up and saw the new lavender nail polish i had bought the night before...and i thought, why not, i'm just sitting here anyways. so i started painting away.
jeans ~ Marshalls
tank and socks ~ Target
blouse and booties ~ swapped (thanks, nora and kimi)
earrings and ring ~ F21 

luckily for me, i had the foresight to realize that i still needed one hand. i'm not a man after all. (some genius men don't even need any hands. oh the luxury!) so i finished my business, washed my one hand and continued to paint my nails. all before 5:05am...not too shabby! and then i watched grey's anatomy. seriously, how much bad stuff can happen to the same group of people? i think i'd stop hanging out with them after the third hospital massacre.
not bad for a 5am potty polish!

  14. I love how you have perfected the ability to roll your jeans up and have it look so chic. I still cannot figure out how to do that.

    Love the purple. I tried multitasking and painting my nails while being on our elliptical. As imagined it didn't turn out as well:(
