Its 3:30 in the morning and I can’t sleep! We are working on year end reports at my job and I have been working 14-16 hour days which only leaves me about only 8 hours in my day which are spent sleeping. I put in the extra hours during the week to keep me from having to go in to the office on the weekend. The weekends are my only free time and I don’t want to lose those! During the week, I don’t have anytime to do anything. I am falling behind in my posts and the dark under eye circles are setting in. The worse part is that it is Friday night and I just can’t sleep, my mind is racing with all the things I need to get accomplished, at work and at home. I really did not expect these hours when I started this new position in April of last year and I still have not gotten used to it. It is really starting to take a toll on me.
Since I am up, I figured I could use this time to catch up on my blog! My weekends are sacred to me and this is the time I get to spend with my husband and just unwind. Last weekend, I kept things simple in all black with a pop of color with my pink trench. Pink is my favorite color so when I saw this coat at Express many years ago, I knew it had to be in my closet! This may not be my warmest coat but I am well prepared. I don’t go anywhere without wearing my Uniqlo heattech leggings and tops. They are thin and fit under my jeans and blouse and keep me so warm. I never found jeans to be very helpful in keeping my legs warm in the winter but these leggings keep me from freezing.
You can never go wrong with a pair of black jeans. This waxed pair from 7 For All Mankind are in heavy rotation this season. I have found over the years that 7 jeans fit me the best so I try not t0 stray too often from them. I paired it with a classic black Theory button down and Club Monaco black pumps. The chevron print on this clutch is what really made the outfit to me. It broke up the monotony of all the solid colors and became the focal point of the entire outfit. Sometimes, keeping it simple is the best way to go!
