Completely Exhausted

Well, the last 2 weeks have been the most stressful and exhausting weeks of my life.  Last week the company I work for held its annual convention, this year in Philadelphia.  It was so stressful yet wonderful.  I love where I work, so it was nice to spend time with the people I am close with, doing what we love.  But I did work a total of 81.25 hours.  Yes, you read that right.  81.25 hours in 6 days.  That is INSANE, people! It was completely exhausting, but so worth it.

But then, the inevitable happened.  It all caught up to me.  I arrived back to Chicago late Sunday night (after a 3 hour delay, of course) and started getting a little bit congested Monday morning. Tuesday it hit me like a big ol’ bus.  102 fever, chills, body ache, sweating, congestion, and pounding headache.  I was absolutely so miserable! Luckily I got over this very quickly.  I give credit to lots of rest, emergen-c, and raw garlic (2 whole cloves to be exact) I am still very congested, but I will take it over everything else.

So, I will try to get my normal post out this weekend, but this was just the explanation where i have been.

If you would like to hear more about my trip to Philly and see some photos of my sightseeing, or anything like that, let me know!

xoxo, Emily

First Outfit of the Day

It isn’t very often that I find myself wanting to post an outfit of the day.  During the week, I wake up at 5:30am and really don’t have the motivation to put together a cute outfit.  On the rare days I do, I feel the need to document them!  This outfit is my new favorite! It is so comfortable, but cute at the same time.

Don’t mind my awkward selfies! Remember, this is my first outfit of the day! Image

*I spy a puppy! And random wood swatches to redo our floors!*Image

ImageLets hope that future selfies aren’t so awkward! haha

  • Shirt is from Target  
  • Black jeggings are Nine West American Vintage in Missy, but they don’t make them anymore.  Here is a similar pair.
  • Boots are Madden Girl
  • Purse is from ShopLately, one of my new favorite websites!

I hope you enjoyed this outfit of the day!  Let me know if you are interested in seeing more posts like this, or what you would like to see!
