TO - 01/05 - feeling mixed-up... green as hope...

Today was my first 2009 day at the office. And I felt totally uninspired when it came to dress myself. Am I too match-y match-y?
I’m feeling a bit mixed-up.

As my Bday is approaching I’m starting to make a lot of questions to myself.

I’ve read this quote and thought of sharing with you.

Put yourself in competition with yourself each day. Each morning look back upon your work of yesterday and try to beat it.
~~ Charles M. Sheldon

I think that this could get me into a lot of trouble. I do this without even thinking and that leaves me no time to play. Maybe it might be better to devote the same amount of time to playing as I do to work??

I’m really going to have to work on this one. Maybe a few sticky notes stuck on the desk might remind me. Did I ever mention the fact that I love sticky notes??

  12. I think you manage to do that. I am not sure how you mange it. You look chicer and lovelier every day. You amaze me.
    Happy New years to you, dear Seeker!!! Much love.xoxo

  13. Honey,
    first off I love the combination of colors you used in your outfit, not matchy at all :)
    Don't push yourself too hard when it comes to life...You are already a wonderful person as it is. I mean it's great to try and improve everyday, but just take it easier on yourself :)

  14. A perfect outfit with matching colours. I'm in love with it!

  15. Boa escolha de visual! Está bem frio aí, hein?
    Amei a frase, vou guardar p´ra mim!

  16. I love sticky notes too and I have to thank the person who invented it. I think you look great and office-ready. The way the quote sounds seems stressful to me. For me, I can only do what I feel I can do that day and when I do extra, it is a bonus and I'm surprised! But maybe that's why I don't get alot done!

    hope you had a good 1st day at work,

  17. Your cardigan is the perfect colour. And I love sticky notes haha!

  18. i love that cardigan with that green belt, such a fantastic mix :)

  19. ¡ tienes un lindo look !
    un beso y mucha suerte en este nuevo año .

  20. I love the mustard cardigan and the shiny green bag looks amazing! And you're not matchy matchy at all! Your colour combinations are always wonderful :)

  21. I'm also a matchy-matchy girl - but I don't care. I like this style and I fell good wearing it. So why should I stop?

    You look soo great today :).

  22. Fab outfit - the mustard cardigan looks almost orange which I like a lot.
    I think do what makes you happy and sticky notes are the best!

  23. Definitely NOT too matchy-matchy. You look stylish and pulled-together in this outfit, another fine example of your bold use of color.

  24. oh i love the color of the cardigan!

  25. LOVE THE belted cardi!

    You are always so classy!!!

    a kiss friend!

  26. I love your outfit... well works annoying and hard sometimes but someone's got to do it :o)

    thanx for the quote, it was inspiring :o)

  27. Você foi linda trabalhar!
    Verde com mostarda combina muito bem!
    Quanto à citaçào, gostei muito!
    Realmente somos concorrentes de nós mesmos, e devemos nos superar a cada dia!

  28. I wish I dressed that nicely when I was feeling uninspired! The pop of colour from the cardigan is especially nice.

  29. you look fab. love the bright caridgan.

  30. have I said happy new year yet? well, happy new year! and yes, play more! sometimes i too, cover my desk and computer screen w/sticky notes. seems kind of counterproductive with the whole computer thing.

  31. The result was perfect, I love your outfit of today! And God bless the sticky notes... I have them all around my computer monitor at work!

  32. Hi,

    Perfect mustard cardi! :) I adore it... I vote... haha!

    xoxo: Janet

  33. Love this outfit!! That orange is perfect!

  34. Wow you look stunning! The firt thought that popped into my mind was, Miranda from "The Devil Wears Prada". Your just as, if not more, stylish. Yet, far more sweet. <3
    I love the different uses of green. It's such a hard color to mix and atch with.


Thank you for visiting my humble blog! I read all your comments (even though I don't reply often) with great care. So keep them coming! Love to everyone :)
