Is it just me or do the first few days after Thanksgiving weekend feel like utter chaos? Bueller? In particular, my Monday felt like a comedy of errors that left me exhausted and laughing on my couch as to how control is just an illusion.
I had to drive into NYC to pick up a ring that was being fixed, and so I thought it would be nice to bring Sawyer with me since she did so well in the car over Thanksgiving to see our families. It happened to be a torrential downpour, which I could overlook if it wasn’t for the fact that there was a major accident on the interstate due to the weather. I managed to make it a whole 7 miles away from my house before having to turn back and reschedule because I had been in the car for 45 minutes already. En route home, Sawyer decides to release the contents of her innards from both ends. Cue the sad movie music as I spend the next 30 minutes getting soaked in the rain while trying to clean up her mess from the front passenger seat.
On the bright side, my Black Friday online shopping spree started to trickle in, and I would be remiss if I didn’t gush over THE BEST PANTS EVER (aka the J. Crew Cameron Slim Crop Pant).
No, seriously. I hate pants. I pretty much exclusively live in Lululemon leggings and stretch jeans from Banana Republic. Women’s dress pants/trousers/slacks/whatever you want to call them have always fit me weird, given me some odd muffin-top effect, or have just looked downright oogly-moogly.
But, these pants are perfect. They look like dress pants, feel like sweatpants, have a tailored fit, and don’t look like they came off the clearance rack. They’re typically $89.50, but with Black Friday/Cyber Monday, they’re 60% off right now, which is not free, but closer to being free than $89.50.
Naturally, I had to show you guys what these pants looked like on me while I was being festive. Of course, squeezing a photoshoot in between the terror of cleaning up your dog’s upchuck and trying to get 800 other things done simultaneously meant I grabbed the “Mr. Claus” mug instead of the “Mrs. Claus” mug. So, just call me Mr. Claus…I don’t mind and honestly, since it’s #2020/aka the weirdest year ever, it’s probably more on brand anyway.
So, cheers to the mess and embracing it, because life is funnier when you f*$! up sometimes. I hope everyone had a restful Thanksgiving and I’m looking forward to sharing more holiday decor and Black Friday deals with you soon!
