Inspiration Monday - When it rains...

Welcome to Monday.  And oh, is it EVER a Monday.  I'll get to that in a minute, but we'll do the business stuff first - it's Inspiration Monday with two birds.  Today's picture is of Brandy.

And my interpretation is a bit of a "if you blink" type looks.  I kind of went after the shoes and capris more than anything else.  Yes, I'm pregnant and still busting out high heels like this.  At least for now.  I know that will change with each passing month, so I'll enjoy it while it lasts!

So why is my Monday SO a Monday?  Well first of all we had storms last night and they woke me up out of a dead sleep at 2:00 am.  And yes I realize in a few short months I'll be getting really familiar with 2:00 am, but right now I'm enjoying the full night's sleep while I can - so I wasn't happy about that.  Then this morning after Mr. Monkey got out of the shower he told me that the shower was backing up very badly.  We waited to see if it would drain - and it really didn't.  So I decided to forgo the shower this morning and opted for a "hobo shower" instead.  At least short hair makes it somewhat easy and I do take a bath at night, so it wasn't terribly hard to get clean enough, but I tell you, a shower really helps you wake up, so I'm missing that big time!  Today is also the first day my boss is out having her other knee done, so I'm flying solo - so I just hope the rest of the day isn't bad from here!

 Jacket - LOFT, thrifted
Shirt - MixIt - thrifted
Capris - Simply Vera, Kohls
Necklace - Maurices
Bracelet - Target
Shoes - Steve Madden, thrifted

So anyway, that's my sob story and let's just say I really love my coffee today.  Yep, I'm one of the pregnant chicks who didn't give up caffeine.  I can have 200 mg a day and you bet I'll be taking full advantage of that today!

For more inspiration Monday outfits and people who are likely in a far better mood than myself, head on over to two birds over here.


  1. That's a very cute outfit! I'm sorry that your day isn't starting out to be very good! It must be something with today. Here's hoping your day turns around - love ya!

  2. I hope your day goes better from here on out! I never gave up coffee, either. I would have about 5 oz a day, which was way below 200mg, but people would still look at me questioningly about it. I did abandon heels pretty quickly, though! Yesterday I contemplated wearing a pair, but I can totally see myself taking a spill with the baby in my arms. Maybe on my next afternoon off...

  3. Hopefully your Monday gets better. Coffee always helps! This is a really cute look. I love the bright pink crops and those heels.

  4. Aww I hope the day goes better for you! I hate when it thunders during the night and wakes me makes it so difficult to get up for work.

  5. Oh too bad you didn't get all your necessary sleep. Sleeping helps the baby grow, too. Dang it.

    Your ootd is adorable tho. Cute color mix and looks great on you. thanks for thinking the 'no accessory neck was ok'. (hug)

  6. This is cute! Both of the Two Birds had shirts peeking out under the jackets, so I think this looks great too! :)

    I hope that your day gets better! Mondays are no fun.

  10. With a day starting out like that, I would be squeezing every last bit of that 200 mg of caffeine. :) Hopefully you're able to catch up on some rest tonight!
