good for a rainy day














































my shirt is made of terry cloth. i really quite love it. it has sweet little stripes and a tie at the waist. i love it's little cap sleeves. and it's perfect on a day when we're supposed to get major storms (i'm hoping they hold off, but the weather man assures me they will not). i just hope that it doesn't soak up all the water!
i am blatantly wearing navy/black/brown all at the same time today. it's funny because i used to think that was such a huge fashion faux pas. not any more. i think navy and black are my favorites to pair together. strange huh?
this morning i had to wake up at a very indecent hour to go running. matt will be out of town over the weekend and i didn't want to risk running for a couple hours in the rain. so i got up at 6:00 (i realize that a lot of you wake up this early on a daily basis, however i do not and i think it's just a ridiculous hour to be up), ate an orange and headed out. i didn't make it as far as i'd hoped because my sinus/allergy crap is back and my head feels like it may explode and i have no energy at lame early hours of the day. oh, well 8 miles isn't too shabby either. i got back before anyone in the house was awake! but now, i'm all showered and ready for the day. and actually my day at the shop started 10 minutes ago so i should probably think about walking down and opening up!
have a lovely friday!!!

you really are my HERO!! How you manage to run far and that EARLY in the morning and still look this cute is AMAZING!! Also makes me feel lazy for never being able to get out of bed until 7:30am.

so many times I've told myself to get up early and work out... but it never happens!! Oh well.. tomorrow is another day!

My BF and I were just talking about the navy and black faux pas the other day! I used to think the same thing, but totally love it now. I really like the cut of your shirt!

i used to be the same way with black and brown - i NEVER would have thought of wearing it together and now it's one of my favorite combination.

cute shirt!

Love this outfit. So casual chic. And YES to that colour combo. It is fun to break the old fashioned fashion "rules", hey?

6 am = nasty. Couldn't agree more. Wouldn't get up before 10 if I didn't have to!

I always forget you are a runner! It's so inspiring that you find time each day to take out for yourself. I need a bit of that in my life. Oh and the fact that you were bummed that you "only" ran 8 miles... I couldn't do that in my wildest dreams!!!!These are absolutely fabulous for a rainy day.

This is a such a great look. The siluette is really nice. And even though it's not really related to these pictures, since you're wearing your hair up and all, can I just tell you that you have like the best hairdo ever? (you do!)
