Mini Day Off


black tank: F21:: green shorts: Old Navy :: striped sweater: Old Navy:: leopard flats: Walmart
Sinclair Burgundy Fade glasses: Warby Parker





Not an "OOTD" post. More of a "Happy Moments" post.

In the last two days, I have slept a total of 8 hours. [whine] 

I usually try to get at least 7 hours of sleep every night because it helps with stress relief, weight loss, and promotes a healthier well-being. In undergrad, it was no big deal for me to get 4-5 hours of sleep per day, but now, if I don't get my minimum number of zzz's, I get cantankerous and dangerously obscene. I'm not even exaggerating.

So even though I have tons of stuff to do, I decided to slow things down a bit and take a mini day-off. No fuss dress-up, no makeup, no fancy hairstyles. Sure, I still did schoolwork, but I spaced it over a longer period of time, interspersed with moments of video gaming and blog perusing so it didn't feel like all I did was schoolwork. These photos were taken before eating a homemade seafood pasta dinner with my husband who has also been working non-stop. The pasta was delicious because I'm awesome. hahaha. 

So far, it's been a great mini day-off. I wore my lovely Sinclairs and felt nerdularly cute with them. They came in two days after I ordered them! Seriously, Warby Parker, I am totally impressed by your products and awesome service.

    I actually laughed out loud when I read "cantankerous" :D my sister and I use the word "crank" and then we have variations of it- I am cranky today, leave me alone. You just got cranked. Don't crank me, Im just asking you a question. HAHA. Anyhow, I went through a few of your old posts.. and I found out we have a few likes in common hehe, cardigans! jeggings! cooking! hello kitty! :D

  11. You need to get some shut eye :( You will feel so happy after!

    Those glasses look fabulous on you! Thank you for introducing Warby Parker. I just checked out the website and I think I'll be trying on a few pairs. I was in DIRE need of new glasses and these look trendy and classic at the same time :)

  15. My sleep schedule is always in a state of flux. It's annoying. I prefer at least 7 hours, but that doesn't always happen. Boo.

    A mini day off can be just the thing to help rejuvenate us. So glad you enjoyed yours!

    Um.. I love this outfit. I'm really anxious to wear outfits comprised of cardigans, shorts, and flats (or my moccasins). I can't waitttttt.

  17. In undergrad, I definitely pulled all-nighters, and it was no problem. Now, I make sure that I always get 7-8 hours of sleep - for my own health and well-being and for the health and well-being of those around me.

    We all need those days off once in a while. I do the same thing on my days off -- homework interspersed blogging, yoga, and random crap that I find to procrastinate.

  23. I love these shots of you! So much fun! For a person who's only had eight hours of sleep in two days, you look extremely refreshed! I wish I could say the same. I go without proper sleep for one night and I look absolutely horrific. :)

  24. I really think that you should draw a comic and call it "cantankerous and dangerously obscene". Bloody brilliant!
