"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): Miss Priss

Miss Priss

I kinda feel like I'm dressed like a prissy bitch today, but whatever. I'm into it.
Sweater - thrifted Ann Taylor Loft
Blouse - thrifted
Skirt - thrifted
Tights - TJ Maxx
Shoes - Baker's, like 10 years ago

I feel like I am seriously lacking in the motivation department this past week... I mean, I guess I was exceptionally productive this weekend, but sometimes, doing nothing for five minutes turns into doing nothing for two hours and then I feel bad.  I know I shouldn't - if I want to watch three episodes of Millionaire Matchmaker with my gay boys, it's my free time to waste as I please. I just know that there are things on my to-do list that have been there too long and I ought to be doing them. Oh well, I have Monday off work for President's Day and I know I'll get a ton done then!

Do you guys ever have this problem? I feel like watching TV or being online during my free time is "wasting it" and I should be cleaning, cooking, sewing, organizing, doing my taxes, reading, exercising, etc. I know I'm just hard on myself, but it's annoying to feel guilty over giving myself a lazy break once in a while!

you look like you need a metre stick and your hipster glasses!

haha and omg don't feel guilty about the "lazy" feeling! I probably spend a good couple hours a day doing just that! Think of reading everyone's blogs like curling up with a good book? you get a laugh or two, maybe even learn something (like i did about F21 yesterday! thanks for that!), and its the prefect way to unwind after a long day :)

Cute outfit. I totally get how you are feeling - but everyone needs some "down" time to make your other times more productive. You need to be good to yourself. :-) I recently found your blog and am reading it via Google Reader. Enjoy seeing your outfits! You've got some cool clothes and a wicked sense of style!!

I think there's a bit of an Emma Pilsbury (from Glee) vibe going on here. All you need is a cute brooch or a sweater pin.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll be following you now :)
I totally know how you feel about "wasting" free time. Sometimes I like to be super-busy&unstoppable, but most of the time I like to sit on the couch and watch hours&hours of nineties beverly hills 90210... and i am not ashamed.

Our bodies&brains need breaks.

Work With What You've Got said...

First off, "prissy bitch" made me lol. I think you look adorable.

Second, ME TOO, so unmotivated.

I feel like there are SO many things I can and want to do with my free time, but watching TV in bed is actually pretty high on the list. It's just DVD or DVRd TV or live TV I have trouble choosing from. What can I say? I'm LAZY.

I can sympathise. But I think to myself, "chillaxing is NECESSARY or I will lose track of my own brain" and it usually works. The only thing I still trouble over is the reading thing - more books, less internet!

I like this outfit. These details are great. Love the yellow color as well. Well even if you do look like a "prissy bithch" (which I don't think you do) you look very cute.

YES. I call this Shark Disease. The disease of always thinking I have to be moving or I'm going to die. *sigh*

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

ha, so funny! i love those days when your personality changes just a little bit because of what you're wearing. you do look buttoned-up but it's totally rad here.

I totally dig your outfit, especially the shoes. The whole things is both whimsical and authoritative (a top combo).
And I get your need for downtime. I actually think I can only be productive an average of 4-6 hours a day (on project that I self-pace), so when I go into overdrive, I have to laze about afterwards to get back to where I need to be. It's frustrating but it's probably like staying awake: you can push yourself a few times, but you gotta make up for it with rest.

I always feel guilty when I just lay around and watch tv with my free time, but sometimes that is really ALL I wan to do. It helps me to rejuvenate sometimes, so I guess that is a pretty good thing. :)

I adore this outfit!

Lady, you ROCK the prissy bitch look. :)

Jolie tenue je trouve que ton choix de souliers est toujours très bien orienté. Tu apportes un soin très particulier au choix de tes tenues. Tu as un don naturel.
