Outfit of the Week - Pink Professional

Why, oh why, is it February? How did January go by so fast? I made some 2013 Resolutions, and let's just say I haven't quite gotten into the swing of things yet. Anyone else feel that way? I need more time! The exercising thing is probably the thing I have been struggling with most. I just cannot find the motivation anywhere. I love the way that I feel when I am working out, it's just that I LOVE the way that I feel when I am sleeping more. I was catching up on some Real Simple reading last night and I stumbled upon this quote:

"When I feel like exercising, I just lie down until the feeling goes away." (Paul Terry)

Um, yes. 






Skirt: Target
Button-Down: Target

    1. Thanks so much Katy! I really prefer skirts to pants for work, so I've invested in A LOT of tights!

  8. Love the DIY necklace - can you please let us know what acrylic brand this is & what the color name is. There again every computer screen probably make the color look different.
    Thanks - would like to make some for the spring / summer.

    1. I am so glad you like the necklace - it was so simple to make! The paint color I used was "Bahama Blue" by Americana (purchased at Hobby Lobby). I will update the original tutorial with the paint color as well - just in case you ever need to refer to it. Happy crafting!

  12. I might as well have written this because that's exactly how I feel. I love feeling the burn and sweating, but...I just really love sleeping more. I also love pizza, sitting at my computer and catching up on my dvr more. whoops.

  13. I have that skirt too! And, I love it! What color are those tights?

    Replies
    1. I looked at the tights and there is no tag or anything, so I don't know any specifics. They are from Target though, so it might be worth a look in the tights section!

  14. I love the necklace! This outfit is so well put together! Gorgeous! :)

  15. Cute skirt! Love the color. And take it from me: once you get into the habit of working out, it's not that hard to get up :)

    1. Haha, that's what everyone says! I've just got to get past the part where I'm in terrible shape and then hopefully I'll start enjoying it :)

  16. Great classic outfit! I struggle with motivation, too, but then I remember all the benefits (mood elevator, health, look, etc) and that motivates me. Also, I only keep hearing how much harder it is to get in a healthy exercise routine when you get older, so let's stay young while we can :P

    1. Oh my gosh - that's exactly why I want to get in shape now! I figure someday I'll be a lost cause, so I'm desperate to make it happen now. Gah, I have got to get some motivation!

  20. I own this same skirt and I have worn it almost exactly the same way! Minus the colored tight. I'm trying to be more brave when it comes to those :)

    1. I'm really not brave with colored tights either... the only way I felt OK about these is because they blend in with the skirt. I wish I could get away with colored tights more often - I love the way they look!

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
