I succeeded in moving faster this morning! It was a little under the wire for getting out the door on time but not nearly as bad as yesterday! I have more ideas of things I can do to save time in the morning as well, so I think it'll get better and better. Funny how you forget little details that can make a huge difference - things like getting the coffee ready the night before, etc. Simple solutions.
I struggle with these pants a bit in how to style them. My sister-in-law gave them to me, they didn't quite work for her and they were brand new at the time. I wore them once last spring and then kind of put them aside because while they are a very light color, they are also corduroy, so that didn't lend itself well to much wear into the summer. Anyway, they're comfy if nothing else and I'll keep trying with them, they just pose more of a challenge than some of my pants.
I decided to switch to one of my favorite bags from last fall/winter. I should call this bag "The Incredible Deceiving Pocket Bag." The zippered pockets? They are just for show, the Pants Monkey learned this lesson one night last winter. My boss thought they were actual pockets too, she thought it would be an awesome bag to have for carrying lots of stuff. Well it is, the inside is nice and big and deep, but those outside pockets mean nothing, sort of like the points on Whose Line is it Anyway. I still love this bag though!
