A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

Feelin' bloovy...

Before we commence, please pretty please tell me you're humming Simon & Garfunkel's great hit, based on the title of this post. Are you? Good. And also, did you get the pun intended with "bloo"? As in, the color. But I wanted to spell it kinda like groovy. I know. I'm asking so much of your mental synapses for a Monday morning. Forgive me.

And also forgive my sweet 4-year-old daughter, who was up all night last night [Editor's note: Sometimes people say "all night" when they really mean, say, a fairly inconvenient 2 hours. Like intermittently from 1-3 a.m. or something. This is not the case here. Please take me literally as you read my lips: Up. All. Night.] coughing and throwing up. Poor little lamb. And, let's be just brutally honest here, folks. Poor me.

Regardless, a girl's gotta get dressed for the day. Even if not until 10 a.m. because I was, and continue to be, just so very tiiiiiiiired [Editor's note: You can see it in my eyes in these photos, can't you. And I thought I was hiding it so well, too.]. I'm not sad or depressed or anything, but blue just fit my mood today.

So. When you wake up feeling like a color, and when you're so tired all you want to do is make sure you can take a nap in whatever it is you end up wearing, it's not that hard to choose an ensemble. Long sleeves under a big baggy tee for the staying-at-home nature of the day. A big soft striped O scarf, just to add a bit of visual interest to the outfit but still stay within the self-imposed color constraints. Comfy comfy jeans, hair up and out of the way, and a wide black belt at the hips. Not sure why the belt ended up on my hips as it did, but I kind of like it. Helps to prove the baggy-tee point, you know?

I'm extremely comfortable today. And I'm going to spend some time appreciating said comfort in a subconscious state. Right about.....now.

Happy Monday.

I was humming the song as soon as I saw the title. This outfit is really cute! I like the belt worn down by the hips. And your poses are awesome :)

Very cute!
I love the scarf/neck wrap!
Sorry you were up all night! I had the flu this Summer, and litterally I was up every 20 minutes throwing up! It was not fun! But my wondeful mommy stayed up with me the whole night! So your daughter will remeber it fondly!

I just read your "deets" page and... your kids are beyond cute. This, coming from a "kids are gross, keep them away" kind of person, is a huge compliment.


Brittney! Love your super fun/cute blog! And I WAS humming so...bonus points, right?

I really like the low-slung belt here + the striped scarf. Very creative way to spice up the blues!!

Haha! I love Simon and Garfunkel, AND I am a sucker for puns. I don't like sucker pun(ches)though. :) Oh. I will stop.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yours looks like a lot of fun, too. Glad you decided to start your own modest style blog! I would like to see more of us! Good observation with the "staying up all night" phrase. I totally agree, but at the same time, when I said it in college, I really meant ALL NIGHT with no sleep. That's because I procrastinated then. For everyone else that look like they had a good amount of sleep and no bags under their eyes, they really just meant one to two extra (maybe three) hours of being up late.

Is that the arms of a stripey bloo sweater wrapped around your neck? So 80's of you. Do you ever get annoyed with stuff hanging around your neck? Seriously. I get annoyed with a necklace on. What is it like to wear something so large. I like the way it looks; I"m just asking. Also, I tried on these boots today & could barely, barely, zip them over my calves so I don't want to hear one more word about your large calves. You hear me?

@all of you: i'm trying to be better about responding to comments personally...but i'm running out of time. thank you for stopping by and leaving comments, i heart simon & garfunkel always and forever amen, i think my kids are cute too (thanks to their dad) despite their morning o' scream-fits this morning, and i don't mind stuff around my neck because it's so cozy warm and reminds me of pjs for some reason.
