I try as hard as possible to plan my outfits out in advance. Which is one of the reasons I love Inspiration Monday. Very little thinking involved! Olive jacket? Lace shirt? Black pants? Got it. The only thing I didn’t get was that I originally planned to wear my skinny black pants and my leather boots today. But after spending over 9 hours on my feet on Saturday and almost 12 hours on my feet on Sunday I decided that I needed flats.

But then I felt too much like I was wearing leggings instead of pants and switched these dress pants. Which are too long to wear with flats. Wedges were the next best thing. Thankfully I sit at my desk all day at work so at least I’m off my feet. Too bad I can’t get someone to carry me during my commute.

I know, I’m whining when so many of my friends ran the Chicago Marathon yesterday and are probably sore, too. But, I’m telling you, I think I would be LESS sore if I had run instead of working the expo and then volunteering at a water station. Crazy. I mean, I slept 14 hours last night. I went to bed at 5PM and got up at 7AM. Which is why posts this week might be a bit sporadic. Still trying to catch up after a fun but busy weekend!
