Coffee

Slouchy Casual

Weekends were build for brunches, TV marathons and casual clothes. It’s a chance to recharge your batteries and kick off those heels. I love dressing up to go out, grab lunch or see a friend for coffee. However it’s those ratty clothes you never see that are my favorite. Oversized Wellesley sweatpants? Check. Old sports shirts? Check. Beat up sneakers? Definitely in my closet!

I’m a big believer in dressing for who you want to be and putting your best foot forward at work. It’s also important to remember that sometimes the best foot is that of a couch potato who will order take out all weekend.

Present Procrastination

You are looking at one of the biggest present procrastinators. I always start “thinking” about shopping for others around Thanksgiving and usually make a good dent. Not only for the people on my list but also for myself!

Then after the initial push I become lulled into a false sense of successful preparation only to remember the final few days before Christmas that I stillĀ have several people on my list. This last minute shopping does pay off with generous discounts at many stores and I usually complete my list with a number of items.

Each year I vow to become better and each year I repeat the pattern. Coffee in hand I am still on my present mission. I hope others are better prepared this year than I am!
