The Friday Five

No more Fab Five Friday... it's now just "The Friday Five" because frankly, life isn't always fabulous. Can I get an Amen?

This changing zodiac sign business.
Who really bases their life around their zodiac symbol anyways? Unless you're a palm or tarot card reader, it doesn't make a bit of difference what zodiac signs mean. You are who you are and only God knows how your life is going to turn out. End of story.

Bad things happen in threes.
I have had this superstition for a while, and it always proves to be right (in my life at least). Yes, I know, I'm being a bit of a hypocrite by believing in a superstition and dissing zodiac signs. Just hear me out. In the past 2 weeks, I've lost my new gloves, free tickets to an event, and my debit card. The rule of threes doesn't just apply to losing things. People die in threes, catastrophes happen in threes, things go wrong with your car in threes... I'm serious. Pay attention to this and you'll be like, wow, Meg was right, that is crazzyyyyy.

Coffee breath.
For the past few days, my coffee breath has also tasted like cigarettes. And I've never smoked cigarettes in my life! It's really grossing me out. Maybe it's this new french vanilla coffee from Target.

Woven belts.
They have changed the way I dress. I look like I actually have a waistline when I strap one on. The best part? My favorite brown one is from Goodwill. $1.50. Wrap your mind around that.

Waking up early.
It's really underrated. I just went through a phase of waking up 30 minutes before I leave for work and it was awful! I think that's what started my run of losing things. So this morning I woke up an hour early and it was amazing! I had time to unload the dishwasher, make coffee, kiss the Mister goodbye & take a few pics of my outfit.

Why is she posting pictures of herself?
Does she think she's a model or something?

HA, absolutely not! That's what is so great about the whole "fashion blogging" thing. You don't have to look like a model to do it. Some of my newest favorite blogs are what you'd call "fashion blogs." I prefer calling it "personal style," however, because I know that I am in no way, shape or form, fashionable. I'm not wearing anything new, expensive or trendy. I don't know how to pose. And I'm not 5'10" walking a runway.

I've been in a style slump. I felt like I was wearing the same thing to work day after day. Dress pants & a sweater. Dress pants & a button down. Dress pants & a turtleneck. I would walk out the door feeling frumpy and this icky feeling would follow me throughout the day.

I decided to reassess my closet and kick my frumpy work attire to the curb. With the help of a few lovely ladies (who's blogs I read daily, see my Links page), I've started wearing the clothes I have in different ways, I've picked up a few essential pieces that I had been lacking, and I feel fan-flippin-tastic!

Posting photos of what I wear is also part of this personal transformation. It forces me to stay on track. I mean, I can't be posting pictures of any lame outfits. That's just embarrassing.

So no, I'm not trying to be a model. No, I'm not vain. I'm just trying to develop my personal style and get out of my boring routine of dress pants & sweaters.

    And by the way, I want to affirm your superstition... I'm a nurse and I assure you this is true! Threes and sevens, people!
