Today I had a classic case of the Mondays. Overslept, running behind, and spilt coffee all down the front of myself as soon as I got to the office. To make things all the better I woke up with a head ache and haven’t been able to shake it. Until a few minutes ago when I a co-worker suggested that I eat some candy…ha! YES SIR! So I splurged and went for a Snickers bar(my dad’s favorite) and sure enough! My head ache is gone.

Even though I am feeling super behind and little swamped this dreary Monday I do love my outfit. I thought of it as I was falling asleep last night. I wore this new sweater yesterday and I wanted to wear it again… but not just with leggings like yesterday. ::Though I do believe leggings are pants:: Morgan from Fredonia posted a photo of this sweater last week and like love at first sight I just kinda knew it had to be mine. Once I arrived to the store on Saturday I was surprised to find out this sweet oversized anchor sweater loves me too.

A match made in sailing heaven really.

I paired it with one of my favorite dresses. A light chambray collared shirt waist dress I got at the thrift store years ago. I was going through a sewing phase at the time and this was one of my victims. I shorted the once floor length dress and added a folded ruffle. Yup. RUFFLES are my jams. Though I have backed off quiet a bit in the last few years there will always be a place in my heart for adults with ruffle butts. The line the sweater creates on my hips is giving me the illusion of a drop waist ruffle butt which happens to be the one thing that can bring sunshine on a rainy day. Anytime I can look like a toddler it rains glitter in my heart. All. Day. Long.

I love to give a go at men’s wear but being a curvy girl I don’t always feel so fresh. Quick fix for me? A statement necklace. Not only does it instantly femme up my collared neckline but it also creates the visual lines of a v-neck.

Also please note these photos were taken with a tri-pod and remote. Yes. The world should begin to brace itself for the amount of SELFIES I am about to flood it with. I mean who needs hott photographer boy friends to be a style blogger? Not this bitch. Milton and I are doing just fine thank you.
