Visible Monday - Laundry fail

Happy Monday friends!  Hope you all had good weekends.  We're in the midst of another snowstorm here in MN.  Winter isn't letting go of it's hold anytime soon.  So, I'm sure you're surprised to see I'm not doing Inspiration Monday with two birds today.  I had every intention of it, they picked an outfit that was right up my alley - but due to a laundry fail, I wasn't quite able to pull it together. They had chosen a fun casual outfit with a polka dot sweater.  I don't have a polka dot sweater, but I have one with stars, so I planned to wear that.  Except it was still sitting in a laundry basket waiting to be washed.  Oops. 


So I gave up on that and chose something else.  I like how this turned out. I'm warm and cozy for a snowy day!  And I feel very visible in my pink pants so I decided to link up with Not Dead Yet's Visible Monday for the first time.

Shirt - Liz and Co, from cousin
Sweater - Old Navy
Pants - Squeeze, from Megan Bird
Necklace - S&D with MMD buttonflower 


The other laundry fail was over the weekend.  We have a "uniform" for the music group we're part of - which is a shirt with our name embroidered on it and then black or khaki pants depending on the season.  Well Mr. Monkey has lost a fair amount of weight, so at this point he has one shirt for our group that fits.  And last week I was telling him, gee, I should really wash that shirt for you (typically he wears an undershirt so it lasts awhile).  So he put it in the laundry and I didn't realize it until we were getting dressed for church on Saturday and he didn't have a clean shirt.  Again, oops.  Anyone seen the laundry fairy lately?  Cause she hasn't been at our house apparently!

  1. Ha ha! If there is a laundry fairy please send her my way too! These pink pants are awesome! I love them paired with the black top. Your necklace has a flower that even goes with the pink pants :) Heather

  3. If it makes you feel better I had a laundry fail this weekend too... meaning I didn't get ANY laundry done... and I will be scrambling to pack for my trip. Ugh! You look super cute though!

  5. Sorry you didn't get to participate, but you are killing it with those pink pants! I had a pair like that in high school, Kyle bought them for me and i am kicking myself for not knowing where they have gotten to.

  6. I hate when there's something you want to wear and you realize it's dirty! We do laundry pretty often around here though!

  7. Ooh love your pink pants. :-) And I need a visit from the laundry fairy too! As well as the cleaning one - my house is a disaster. It always happens when I'm sick. :) Hope you have a great day.

    Thank you for your fun comment to me and my hot fishnets. hahahahaha [they were the only dark tights I have right yet]. ohoh, tmi?

  12. Love the pink pants!!! Sorry about the laundry. I do so much laundry, and it never gets done. I keep trying to convince the DH jeans don't need to be washed every single time you wear them... especially if all you're doing is sitting around the house. *sigh* I've already got another load sitting in the basket now. Send the laundry fairy over here next please!

  17. Those soft pink pants look sooooooooooo comfortable.

    The laundry fairy would die of fright if she visited our house, especially the teens' rooms...

  18. Your pink trousers are lovely! A great shade on you. DH and I often wish the fairy would visit more often. It's enough to get up, washed and dressed every morning, let alone sort laundry out...
