I dress better if I start here!

The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office.

I usually end up putting an outfit together in the morning, but the pitfalls of that is time…can’t run late, or I get caught in the school carpool line! I have attempted many times to pre-plan my outfits, but somehow it never seems to work.

Another drawback of waiting until morning, is that I often will allow something to go unnoticed because I was rushing to get out. That’s why I was just short of being horrified today, when I looked down at my feet and saw NAKED TOES! Maybe not the biggest deal in the world, but I attempt to never wear sandals or open toed shoes without a nice color on the toes. It is rare that they look like this. However, I love this pair of GUESS shoes with the major bling on top! They pop nicely with the black, white and grey look of this outfit.

But great bling!
Naked toes!

It really is too bad that a middle class American school teacher/mom/caregiver to her mom cannot afford a personal stylist! How I wish I could say each morning to a little genie in my closet, “ please find for me a youthful, trendy, business-casual look that centers around this jacket that I really like and of course is slimming on top of all of that!!” Oh, and do this quickly because I need to get to work right away!

Since that is not going to happen EVER, I guess I need to be satisfied with occasionally finding a problem with my look like NAKED TOES!

Hands not too bad!
