Inspiration Monday - Can it be the weekend again?

My weekend was epic and wonderful.  I wish it was still the weekend.  I got to see a friend I haven't seen in two years for a impromptu coffee date on Saturday morning while she was in town from New York and it was wonderful catching up.  I had a good golf lesson, I went to a benefit for another friend, then our music group sang at church and went out as a group afterward to a fun Mexican restaurant and had a good ole time.  And on Sunday I did some shopping and got a haircut!  So it was a great weekend.  And now it's Monday.  And it is so a Monday.  But at least it's Inspiration Monday which helps a bit!  The birds picked actress Jenna Dewan (whoever she is) here.

So, first reason it is so a Monday is my pictures were not cooperating with me today.  No matter where I stood in my yard I ended up so washed out.  So I'm going to give you one indoor picture and one outdoor picture.  It's too bad, I ended up really loving this outfit, I dressed it up a bit for work.

See what I mean?  So washed out.  So then I got to work and decided to take one more so you could better see what I did with this outfit.  I chose my Anthro pants instead of jeans to make this more office friendly and I love this new sweater I got yesterday.  Added a colorful necklace and I was good to go.  So, this next picture is darker, but at least you can kind of see more of what I did here!  I wish my iPhone camera had a timer, seriously I'd use it every day if it did!  I know, first world problems right?

There are other "Monday" things going on so far today too, but that is just how it goes some days I guess!  I'll just sit here and dream of my wonderful weekend and I'll get by!

Stay tuned later today for my second ever vlog.  And as always, make sure you visit two birds for more Inspiration Monday fun!

  10. Yes we have those days when the camera refuses to cooperate with us. I usually just opt for the easy way out and blame the equipment. You look like you have a very fun necklace, I am crazy about those that have multichain ones. Can't wait to see your vlog, sounds exciting!

  11. A very good match! You look lovely! Glad you got to see friends! I am so sad not to be joining in :-(

    1. Aww, thanks and I have missed weeks before too, it happens sometimes!

  12. Those pants are certainly super versatile. They go with so much. I need to get some more wear out of my sadly neglected trousers. Looking forward to your vlog!

  13. I like the gray pants. I'm sure an iPhone timer isn't far away!

  14. you had quite the eventful & fun weekend! it's frustrating when the light on photos is uncooperative. you look very professional. :)

  15. Love the color of this new cardi. Great outfit!
