Can we have a chat? It’s Monday. Last week was a lot. The season is changing, which is both amazing and havoc on our bodies and schedule. I’ve had two crazy weeks of travel (for which I am so grateful), and I’m tired. Like exhausted, tired. All in all? IT’s monkey business. Now we could fight the monkey business. We could complain about it. Or we could wear it. And loves, wearing the monkey business might be the way to win!
This skirt was an immediate yes when I found it at HM. Yes, HM is a place you need to be shopping for fall. Yes, this combo of midi skirt and sweater may be my go-to fall uniform. I won’t apologize for it, especially when the skirts are this amazing. Besides being classic and a neutral, I’m in love with the monkeys on this skirt (LOVES THEY’RE WEARING CROWNS!). It’s cheeky and fun, and yet you can get away with it in any situation. I love it with a sweater and heels, but this skirt would look great with boots or sneakers as well. And while I wouldn’t pair it with graphic tee any sweater, blouse, t-shirt would go great as well. The best part? All day you can deal with the monkey business in your life by showing off monkeys. That will show them.
I’m not sure what kind of monkey business you’re dealing with: I know there’s a lot out there right now. I hope it’s the kind you can laught at, and that it passes. I’m looking to find balance in my monkey business this week: working hard, resting hard, and playing hard. I’m hoping this week brings us the best of fall, and maybe some new shoes. I hope we can laugh together-if not at our monkey business then at the monkeys on our skirts.
And yes, I really recommend writing when you’re running on no sleep. It not only really makes you think, you get to exercise a little bit of vulnerability. And you get to pray your writing makes sense!
I’ve linked shopping options below (including this exact skirt, which is under $50), I’m off to nap and do better tomorrow!
