Not so glamorous

A quick look at my morning commute.  I am definitely not one of those people who can fit all my work stuff (lunch, shoes, etc) in my purse.  For those who have mastered workday packing – please provide tips (because sadly, some days I cart three bags back and forth).

Linen Woes

Linen baffles me.  It wrinkles soooo easily.  Yet it is a popular summer fabric that I (like a sucker) continue to buy and wear.  I literally ironed these shorts 3 minutes prior to taking these photos.  I feel this is a “disappointed head shake” moment.
