outfit of the day(bird): creative procrastination




pants, earrings ~ F21
vest ~ garage sale
tank ~ thrifted
necklace ~ gift from erin

this is literally how my mind works when i start cleaning the house.
(grabs broom to sweep)
hmmm, we really could use a new vacuum. desi has so much hair that we really need a good one.
(heads to the computer to research vacuums)
ok, i should really clean.
(grabs broom again)
maybe this chair would look better in the other corner.
(moves chair to other corner)
(moves chair back to original spot, but then sits and stares at all the furniture to see how it can be rearranged)
(moves all the furniture around for about 30 minutes)
(grabs broom again)
maybe i should make homemade bread today.
and soup....homemade bread and soup sounds so good.
(starts making bread dough so it has time to rise)
(grabs broom again)
maybe i should clean out my closet.
(empties closet)
(tries on all of the dresses)
(gets rid of two dresses)
(puts everything back)
(feels pretty accomplished at this point)
(realizes the house is still dirty)
(grabs broom again)
ok, i'm sweeping...let's just get this done.
this train of thought would make a great blog post.
(goes to computer and types it all up so as not to forget this brilliant train of thought)
(grabs broom again)
ok, just clean already.
(cleans)
is it just me?
xo,

ps. this is the outfit i wore to the runway show we helped style (stay tuned for a post on that tomorrow). i was trying to look young and hip because it's a guarantee i was the oldest person there. but i was wearing faux leather pants and a little girl's faux fur vest, so i didn't care.

  5. HA! I laughed out loud reading this, especially since I just did this last night! The only difference is I never actually got around to cleaning anything :) I did get rid of a nice stack of clothes, though!

  6. Loved reading this. I hate cleaning, so your stream of conscience is pretty accurate :)

  8. LOL, I'm pretty good about cleaning, but I definitely have that stream of consciousness about other things like cooking. Too funny.

    I LOVE that faux fur vest! Can't wait to read the recap of the fashion show!

  13. Oh I can't wait to hear about the runway show! I love this vest and the blouse underneath it. I have this same train of thought when I am cleaning. I never can stay in one spot and clean, I end up all over the house, sometimes cleaning, sometimes organizing and sometimes just doing something totally different.

  17. love love love the vest {garage sale?!} and booties! they are exactly the kind of shoes i drool over but don't buy, because i know that i wouldn't wear heels. :( but so cute on you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. i soo like this outfit! it's beyond. in my mind, that's a good thing. i like things cleaning, but the process bites. no wonder you get sidetracked. ;)

  19. I don't ever rearrange my furniture but I'm so easily distracted. I plan on unloading the dishwasher but then the counter is dirty and you can't put clean dishes on a dirty counter. Then I try to sort mail and find a bill that needs to be paid. etc etc. :) I feel your pain!

  20. This is so so so cute! I love the vest, can't believe you found it at the garage sale! And I love your train of thought... seriously I have the same issue well not necessarily issue but you know :) It is hard for me to focus on one thing because my brain wants to try to accomplish way more at once!

  21. It's like you're in my mind - such a similar story when it comes to cleaning up around here!

  30. This is so funny! I wake up too late to spend any time deciding what to wear, so instead, I spend like, ten minutes laying out all my clothes at night! Thanks for stopping by my blog and following! I hope to see you there again, and I followed back!
    I noticed that you're a no-reply blogger, which means that I can't reply to your comments. I'd love to be able to, and I'm sure that a lot of other bloggers would too! Here's how to fix that: http://horcruxesandhallows.blogspot.com/2012/07/no-reply-commenters.html

  37. I'd just be pleased to eventually get back to the task I needed to do. I usually get really distracted and forget about what I was supposed to do altogether. By the way, I love these heels! :)
