by on Oct.25, 2010, under new gear, stuff we do

It’s Monday, which just happens to be my favorite day of the week. Weird, I know. Usually I work most weekends, but now that wedding season is winding down (I’m a florist, check out my boss lady’s awesome work at www.jennifercoleflorals.com) my brain stores up so many ideas that by Monday morning it’s ready to explode! I just can’t wait to get into the sweat shop and get shit done. Anyhow, back to the point. The only thing I don’t like about Monday is getting dressed. Again, weird, I know. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting dressed to go fun places and do things, but it’s the everyday clothes wearing that gets me. I’m a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl, but that’s starting to get old. Plus, taking time in the morning trying to pick out “the” t-shirt and jeans that I will don for the day seems like a waste. So, I’ve been thinking about making myself an everyday uniform. Something simple and versatile that allows me to look put together without using too much brain power. Something sort of like what I used to wear to Catholic school, only more grown up. But not in a skanky, I’m about to shoot a porn or bust into a pop song and dance routine kind of way.

this is pretty much what my school uniform looked like back in the day (the plaid jumper one)

I wonder if wearing a uniform will make me more productive and creative, you know, since I won’t have to think about what to wear and all. People in uniform do look pretty official and in charge of things, don’t they?

Now these ladies look like they're getting shit done! You can't fly planes in a t-shirt and jeans.

Or maybe I’ll obtain some strange super power. I’m hoping for the one where I can get out of the house in under 30 minutes and I’m never late to anything. Now that’d be super.

I bet she's never late to anything. And she gets to wear super radical gold cuffs. My uniform will definitely be having accessories.

Here’s one uniform I never want to wear.

They don't look like they're in charge of much, but I'm pretty sure they're about to get something done...and orange is totally in for next spring, so...

I’ll let you know when I come up with the perfect uniform. It’s probably gonna go a little something like this…

The Elisa Legging

The Patti Sleeveless Button-Up in grey

or The Vintage Silk Short Sleeve Button Up

and for layering in the cold months The Rothy Sweater

and The Sienna Jacket (which I already have and love)

Oh yeah, I’m gonna need a couple of The Silver Punching Rings

A Copper Picture Holder Necklace, and a Large Ammonite Fossil Necklace to accessorize! Ok, Maybe this uniform thing isn’t as thoughtless as I had planned (I still need a bag and some shoes), but it sure does look better than a t-shirt and jeans!
