I only have about a 15 to 20 minute commute door to doo via a combination of walking and train.  I am supposed to be at work at 9:00 AM.    Normally I set my alarm for 7:00 AM and drag myself out of bed any time before 7:30 (I am NOT a morning person).  Anyone want to guess what time I woke up today?  Try 8:26 AM.  Uh, yeah.  Not sure what happened there.

Thankfully my boss is rarely in at 9:00 so I have some leeway.  Also, I had my outfit all planned out for today.  Except, when I put on the black blazer I was originally going to wear I didn’t like the way it looked.  Thank heavens for also having a black cardigan!  Also, this shirt is like wearing comfy pajamas so it’s perfect for a day when obviously my body didn’t want to get out of bed.

I also had grand plans to create a post about all my earrings and tell you all about how I used to only wear one pair.  That was it.  And then show you how my collection has grown over the past year.  But, I ran out of time so all you get is this sentence.

On the plus side, I think this post is a testament to the benefit of planning out your outfits in advance.  Sure helps when you have to go from pajamas to plaid in less than 30 minutes!
