mondays are my new sundays

T-shirt- Anthropologie; Turtleneck- Club Monaco (Swapped); Trousers- Gap (Thrifted); Heels- Thrifted; Hat & Ring- H&M; Nail Polish- Posh by Revlon

 Now that I no longer work a Mon-Fri 9-5 job I've found myself indulging on my time off.  For instances, I now work Saturdays so Sundays are now my Saturdays and Mondays are now my Sundays  (if you were able to follow that train of thought than I'm impressed!)Yesterday I enjoyed a lovely brunch and clothing swap (I got some great goodies!) hosted by the beautiful Kat, followed by a fabulous deep tissue massage at Soma

As much as I love massages (the masseuse said my back was as knotted as a washboard), am I the only one who finds them slightly awkward? You're there to relax so you don't want to be all Chatty Cathy but the silence can be deafening! Plus when they're working out those tense parts of your back, do you let out the oooohs and aaahhhs or not? (Hmm guess I should have brushed up on my massage etiquette beforehands such as 'don't be embarassed if you've forgotten to shave your legs'- phew!)

Today, on my 'Monday is the new Sunday' I plan on leisurely reading, organizing my closet and working out any remaining tension at the gym. I hope you're all having a great Monday so far and if you're working the 9-5, be sure you take some time to indulge in the simple pleasures of life!

 (I thought I'd have to miss out on this week's Inspiration Monday but after looking closely at Taylor Swift's outfit I realized I'm already wearing a similar slouchy hat and skinny pants!)
 

Below is another way I've worn a t-shirt over a long sleeved top (back in my platinum blonde Barbie wannabe stage) Craving more inspiration? Check out how all the other gals styled the short sleeve over long sleeve fashion challenge over at Megan and Keely's!

  2. Oh now, I am completely jealous! No more Mondays to Fridays 9 to 5? Man, I wish.. maybe one day! When Twenty York Street goes HUGE!

    =)

    Love the layers babe, esp the cute beret top it all off!

    p.s. Fadi's photos eating sushi are indeed priceless!

  3. Cute photos & outfit! It's fun to change up routines sometimes - plus you can do your errands on Mondays and the stores won't be as busy as they might have been on sundays! Yay!

  4. I really like your short sleeve shirt, the pattern and the colors are fun! And I also like your hat!

  5. I really love the layered t-shirt you're wearing. Good luck with all your plans! I always start Sunday with big plans but end up playing video games and watching TV with the boy instead. :)

  6. The tee's print is really great. I've never had a professional massage, not sure if I'd feel comfortable with a stranger touching me like that.

  7. I'm thinking of you and your leisurely Monday with just a smidgen of jealousy! I'm happy you liked the swap and am very very happy you came. I didn't get a chance to see what everyone left with so I liked these pictures. Happy a few of my items found a home in your closet!

  8. Mondays are still Mondays for me, but at least I get to work from home. Your beret is so cute! I want more, but I only have 1.

  15. I hope you had a very relaxing Monday--those kinds of days are the best! It's good that you still get a "weekend" even if it's not on the traditional days. I'm loving both of these layered looks, especially the cute print of that Anthro top!

  16. Oh my gosh, you are hilarious AND adorable! First off, love the top and beanie in your first picture and love the stripes and leopard in the second picture!

    When you mentioned how awkward massages are it made me giggle. My husband and I did a couples massage as part of our 10th wedding anniversary and it was wonderful, but so weird. After the massage we were laughing because we were both oohing, aaahing, and trying not to giggle during the whole thing :) Heather

  18. This look is really cute, I love the print on your tee and your slouchy hat. I wore a very similar outfit on Friday, maybe I'll finally link up this week. Hope you had a great Sunday!

  19. Super cute take on the layer up challenge!

    And, I know what you mean-massages are so good, but so awkward. After my I think I was more tense than when I started haha Hope you're loving the new job and new schedule!!

  20. I love the grey under your tee. It just flows.

    I can't wait for my massage tomorrow, but I don't go for the relaxation. My muscles are like wires. Lots of oohs and aahs and ouches.

  21. No more evil Monday mornings for you? I think I along with about 239429042 other people are incredibly jealous right now. Monday mornings are the worst! I'm glad that you are enjoying your new Mondays off, though. You look super adorable in that hat!

  22. Congrats on your new schedule! I love all of the shades of gray together with the mustard color. That hat is so adorable on you!

    I used to moan and groan when my friend's mom gave me massages in high school. I guess it's normal?

  23. you're looking mighty good for sunday on a monday casual outfit. every detail is wonderful the ring, nails, shoes, & very cute hat! is your hair blonder in the bottom photo or am i brain damaged? it's a rhetorical question, of course i am.

  24. I love that t-shirt over a long top! Looks good. LOL at the masseuse. They play soft music at mine, but it still seems too quiet.

  31. Hi doll - I actually feel the same way about massages - weird having some stranger rub my nekked skin... I just started getting them a couple years ago under the strictest conditions: Only when I'm in Jamaica and only when my hub and I get a couples massage together. That way we can joke around with each other and the ladies and still get our relax on! I'm loving your outfits - super chic and casual. The green nail polish is a great surprise accent!

  32. Great outfit. Is there massage etiquette? They're probably used to all sorts of weirdos, I'm sure you won't scare anyone whatever you do. Unless you do something really weird. I always fall asleep and leave a trail of drool. I really hope they wipe down the beds after everybody:) I particularly like the ikat shirt, ikat? And the mustard! Need more mustard!

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
