sea monsters and such





Whew. Still jet lagged and to be quite honest, not feeling so great. I got in earlier yesterday from NYC only to nap, eat and nap some more. And thanks to a wonderful boyfriend, I was somewhat pampered back to health. Kinda. Still never got my back rub though (insert blatant hint here).

That said, since I knew I was going to be playing a lot of major catch up today at work (read: lots of e-mails, meetings and writing, writing, writing), I wanted something comfy. So ladies and gents, I give you my leggings. Leggings, meet pants. Pants meet leggings. You both are one in the same in my book, fashion faux pas be damned! Plus, how could you hate on anything that allows for sitting cross legged comfortably at a desk?

Riddle me that.

As for the multiple watches, I'm sure I'll get tired of it, but for my trip, it was nice being able to quickly refer to my New York watch (the bright yellow Nooka via the Weardrobe conference, thanks Nooka!) and my regular Reno watch. That way, I could quickly figure out when I could call someone back home. Because let's face it, who has the time to add or subtract three hours to configure that kind of stuff? Not this gal. Plus, I'm horrible at math. True story.

That does it for me. I think I'm due for another nap. In the meantime, please disregard the sea monster about to attack me. He's quite friendly, actually.

  11. this outfit really strikes all the right notes. absolutely LOVE it- and the greatest thing about all the peices you are wearing is that though it is "THIS MOMENT" and super-on-trend, everything you have on is versatile and will last long past the current season.

  21. yay, someone else who completely ignores the leggings as pants rule! I agree, so comfy! you look great and I'm completely jealous of your NOOKA watch! ps- thanks for your photo advice earlier, it worked!

  22. If I had legs like yours, I would rock the leggings as pants look too! And I am totally digging the two watches at once. Especially since they are completely different!
