Dressing for Work Hiatus

Ever have one of those days that you just feel like wearing sweats to work? You stand in the closet, look at your clothes, and think to yourself...."I have NOTHING to wear." Then, you may make the mistake of telling this to your which he will reply..."What do you mean?! You have so many clothes that I have to put mine in the guest closet because you take up the WHOLE walk in closet!" He will then get slapped by you.

This is all hypothetically of course.

That's EXACTLY the mood I was in'd think that with a short week, I'd be ready to go...nope. I decided to put on my most sweat-pant like went a little something like this....

Strapless Maxi Dress (in blue) from Forever 21 ($11).
Basic t shirt (black) underneath from Target ($5) to make it work appropriate.
Strappy flat (black) sandals also from Target ($15).

Big beaded (black) necklace...again from Target ($5) to "glam" it up.

Most of the items I have had in my closet for well over a year...I just mix and match them. So I went to work, feeling frumpy and CRAVING my sweats...but wouldn't you know....I got so many compliments on my outfit!
Most people that know me know that I have a hard time taking a compliment about my outfit WITHOUT telling you where I got it and how cheaply I got it....they also know I hardly ever by something that is NOT on sale. Here is how most of my conversations go...
PERSON: I like your dress.
ME: THANKS! I got it at Forever 21 on sale for like...$10! It's so comfy and I totally feel like I
am in my sweats!
PERSON (laughing at me): (run away)
ME: (smiling like an idiot so proud of my thriftiness thinking that it is totally awesome that I actually got a compliment on an outfit...SCORE!)
Yes...I can't believe that I actually have friends...can you?

On a VERY RANDOM alert.....flipping through the channels tonight and the news was on. I found out some news.
Newt Gingrich Twitters.

Hee...hee...for some reason, I find this hilarious!
Also...a little sad....
He is more technologically savy than I.
