one of those days

Do you ever have one of those days when you just wake up in a mood? Where you have a closet overflowing with clothes but ABSOLUTELY NOTHING looks good once you put it on? When your smile rarely comes out to play? When you come across as the supreme bitch? And you can't explain it? You're just in a bad mood and you want to stay that way, no matter how much you tell yourself you're being ridiculous?

Today. Today was just one of those days for me.

My poor mother. I don't think she knew what hit her. But she took it well. I guess I just had a case of the mean reds. It doesn't happen very often, but when it does, oh man look out. I don't yell, or snap, I just become easily irritated. I become quiet. And perhaps overly sarcastic. Which could very well be worse than yelling. The worst part is, my family members usually take the hit. Innocent pedestrians, have no fear. Family, take cover.

Thankfully, approximately three hours ago, I snapped out of it.

I think the fact that I bought an adorable pair of lacey pumps from Nordstroms and a fun apron from Anthropologie helped.

Aah retail therapy.


  1. i LOVE this post. because that's exactly how i am! i'm just so absolutely bitter out of no where and i'm quiet and when someone irritates me further, i call them out passive aggressively. it's great in the end. :P

  2. haha. loves it. yeah, i feel bad for my family sometimes, too... i can be quite the grump. retail therapy is good for the soul, but bad or the bank account. hehe.

  3. mmm anthropologie aprons!!

    and yes i get in these moods too- the mean reds.
    guaranteed to be in this mood if i get really hungry... it's weird, then i get more irritated cause i can't decide what i want to eat, then my blood sugar dips, i get the shakes and i hate the world.
    haha, but then it just takes a nibble on a croissant and all's right again!

    p.s. i just read breakfast at tiffany's last week, thought it was better than the film! and i got a lovely card (with a hungover bird) in the mail today! (or possibly earlier in the week, but just checked the box today) thank you! :)

  4. That picture very well depicts when I'm in a funk... except that girl is better dressed.

  5. Oh Audrey...I can't help but love everything she was ever in. But I have to admit, Breakfast at Tiffany's is the movie that best depicts me. I love her so much. And I agree...the Reds are just the worst, and family always takes the hardest hit.

  6. The girl in that picture must be wearing the bumpit of all bumpits.

    Sorry about your mood. Mid-January will do that to ya.

  7. I totally know this feeling.
    And Audrey rocks my socks.

  8. he mean reds are exceptionally annoying! one can't help it though. you took the words right outta my mouth. Love Audrey in that role. <3
