SB - Capsule Closet - Look 9

I must confess….I don’t actually hate Mondays. I don’t love them either, but I appreciate their role in the week. It’s not Monday’s fault that it falls after the weekend and before the rest of the work week. It can’t help it! That said, I have a few tricks to make Monday’s more tolerable even when I’m not feeling so empathetic about it.

The first is to plan a great outfit on Sunday night so I don’t have to think about it in the morning. It’s no fun to start the week feeling rushed or dishevelled.

The second is to treat myself to a latte on my way to work. Sometimes a fresh scone gets involved too. There are few better mood boosters than coffee and baked goods!

The third is that I do everything within my power not to work late on Monday. It’s not always possible but I find if I can finish work by 6, take some time to decompress and either pick-up or make dinner I feel so much better going into the rest of the week.

So what are your thoughts on Mondays? Spawn of Satan or a necessary evil?

    Lee, if I only read one blog in a day, it’s going to be yours. I love this outfit, and the advice. Monday I was having a….well Monday, and stopped to get a latte, and organize myself, and it was a great day!

  2. Agree, not working too late on Mondays REALLY helps! It just sets you up for a much better week!

    Happy Monday Lee!
    I’am a morning person and into Monday’s (usually). I work almost every weekend so they’re my Friday’s. Today Monday is my Monday though, lol.
    I definitely get the coffee and scone, that combo helps with everything.
    Love this sweater so much! Definitely getting a gray crew neck for the fall!
    Hope you have a great one. Excited about #10!

    • Thanks Jodie! Ah, Monday’s off are a whole other story. I almost prefer them to Friday’s off. Somehow they’re more relaxed.

      This sweater is easily my favourite closet addition this year. You’ll love it! XO

    I second the latte & pastry combo! Every morning I make smoothies for me and my husband, and if I cut and zip-lock all of the ingredients for Monday’s the night before (+ have lunches packed) I feel that much more prepared to seize the (Mon)day.

    Ps. Love this outfit combo. I have almost all of the right pieces to put it together!

    • Thanks Courtney! Smoothies are definitely another great way to kickstart the week. My kitchen is under renovations right now and I’m seriously missing them! xo
