Coffee Required: April 21st, 2011

Event: Work/shopping

Outfit: White blouse & headband: LOFT outlet; Skirt: CAbi (mommed); Boots: Diba; Rose pin: H&M; Arrow necklace: Stella & dot; Belt: from another dress

Thursdays always feel like my longest, busiest days, and today was no exception. This, combined with a horrible weather forecast for tomorrow’s engagement shoot (already rescheduled once after snow/28 degrees last month) and some unwelcome (but not unexpected) news at a work meeting has had me a bit cranky today. Okay, a lot cranky.

BUT My co-workers are awesome people, which always helps, and coming home to be with Arwen & Adam certainly put me in a better mood (+my sister got an amazing internship with Kohl’s, which means she’ll be living in Milwaukee this summer!). Adam and I embraced the weather forecast and shopped for umbrellas (+new dress shirts for him). We’ve almost definitely decided to go ahead with things tomorrow. Our photographer has been SO awesome about willing to reschedule, but I’m really eager to have the shoot. I think my original vision is going to have to shift a bit, but I do think we can make indoor (+rainy?) photos rock as well. Thank you so much for all your feedback in the outfit poll! Very appreciated. I think location will definitely play a role in what I wear—-planning on Traced Twirls for the majority (certainly won the vote!), but may do the polka dots for some more urban shots.

I’m off for a glass of wine and sleep. No work tomorrow!

P.S. Photos were taken at 6am, cup of coffee needed and included. 😉 A frappuccino on the drive home was also somehow deemed necessary…
