The Root of the Problem

I woke up yesterday morning with the intention to go for a run and it was raining. A hot, muggy rain, so I went back to bed. When I finally woke up and got ready for work, I didn't feel like putting much thought into my outfit, so I grabbed a dress that I had worn before and reached for my cowboy boots that I had recently rediscovered. Do you want to know what I found?  The heels on BOTH of the boots are pulling away from the boot! Ugh. So, I went with a different pair of shoes, got dressed and realized that I felt a bit bloated and poochy (probably all that junk food I ate on our beach getaway!). That's when I let out another groan (UGH) and grabbed a nice big roomy sweater to layer on top of my cute dress. Ha! I'll show my poochy stomach not to rear it's ugly head. . . or something like that. Finally, I looked in the mirror and realized what was really causing this bad day.  From my bloated tummy to the terrible weather**, it's all caused by the fact that it's time for my hair to be trimmed and colored. Yep, that's what did it. 


Dress, Sweater, Shoes: Target
Belt & Bracelet: Thrifted


I'm linking up today with No Model Lady and Real Momma Real Style!

** You want to know something funny? By about 9:00, the sun was shining and it was beautiful. Then, by 1:00 p.m., it was storming again. Then, by 3:00, the sun was back out. That's Florida for ya!
