Ah! This post was supposed to go up earlier! Thank you blogger for not doing what you were supposed to.
Wednesday was one of those days. You know, when the outfit you picked out in your head the night before doesn't look exactly how you want it to, your hair refuses to curl despite how much hairspray you use, and then after fighting a losing battle with your unruly hair for 45 minutes you leave a half an hour late for work. Yup. One of those days. Everything I had planned today seemed to have a funny way of going up in smoke. On the bright side I wasn't alone. Right around lunch time my little outlook box popped up with my most recent email, subject line "I'm Grumpy". Despite my bad mood I just couldn't help but giggle. SSBF seems to read my mind. I don't know how he does it. Needless to say though with two grumpy people pictures were not exactly a hoot.

Clearly, this is not the outfit I picked out in my head. As much as I love it. It's too easy. This kind of outfit has become second nature to me. Signature Grace if you will. The outfit I had planned involved a dress, tights, these amazing boots, and a tbd cardigan/blazer. Some people may think its predictable even boring to have a "style". I on the other hand think its comforting. An easy go to when mornings go awry, a back-up plan if you will.

Btw, these boots are what I bought with my gift card. I was so excited! I have a tendency to choose flat boots, so these are an awesome and comfortable alternative.
How is every ones week? I know how Alyson's is. Congratulations on the new job:)


  1. I know how you feel...Ill think its a great outfit..see the pics and then ask "what was I thinking"? think you look great:)

  2. I always create outfits in my head then try them on and they look blah so I know exactly how you feel! I like your hair in a bun on top of your head even though it didn't turn out how you wanted it to!

  3. I know EXACTLY what you mean! haha I had one of those days earlier this week too, thank goodness it's finally friday.

    Okay, those boots are amazing. Awesome choice on how to spend your gift card!

  4. :) Thanks Grace... Trust me I'm over the moon!!!!

  5. This is one FABULOUS look. Not so bad for a day when things didn't work out the way you wanted them to. And I'm new to your blog, so I'm totally impressed, even if it is "signature Grace".

  6. Ah, I love those boots.. and that blazer!

  7. OOoooo, those booties are amazing! Love love loveth this whole ensemble!
