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!

    LOL! Happy you had your outfit planned. I think you should still do the earring post. It interests me.

    I never would’ve thought to wear plaid to work! Brilliant! I love it paired with the solid colors.

    When I was a kid my parents always made us lay our outfits out the night before, but I fell off that bandwagon sometime in high school or so. I got back into it in college and it is SUCH a time saver. I’d even stack my clothes in the order they had to go on some nights when I knew I was going to be in a rush the next morning. I’m not usually that OCD about it anymore (though maybe I should be, given how close I’ve been cutting it in the mornings since I got back to work after Christmas…), but yeah. Laying out my clothes ahead of time is one of the many wise things my parents taught me :)

    Planning outfits is definitely easier! I did the same thing this morning and was so glad I did… I knew I could spend an extra 20 mins in bed ;) I like the plaid and the cardigan with the skirt and the subtle pattern on the tights. Great texture!

    I wore that shirt today, too! It’s so soft and comfy, but I wish the collar would stay upright better. Love the skirt, too!

    I use to hate those mornings! I don’t mind being up early when I’m up, but it’s that getting out of bed that’s hard. (And yikes to waking up late! Clever you, having your outfit laid out.)
    I really like this with the button up cardigan, I think with the silhouette of the skirt that it worked better than the blazer would have, it’s such a streamlined look. The plaid shirt as just a bit of color is gorgeous, it’s really unexpected!

      Strangely, the only time I don’t mind the alarm is on a race morning. Then I pop up out of bed.

      And you’re totally right that the cardigan is more streamlined than the blazer. That must be why I couldn’t make the blazer work for me.
