Jinxed. I jinxed myself by jokingly saying "maybe I have laryngitis". 

... I have laryngitis. 

This week has tested my speaking limits. I cancelled all of my plans this weekend to rest up and not talk... turns out, I try to talk to myself all the time! I did keep two appts. One was my pedicure and the second was a trip to the grocery store. I did really well by Sunday night and, oddly enough, Monday! Thank goodness for ping. 

Today is the first day I'm not a hot mess at work. I did my hair, make up, wore impractical shoes for the sake of style, and I eased it all down with a sheath dress. It's no secret that I'm petite. There are days I wish I had named this blog Petite and Peplums but alas, I love dessert too much. 

The trick to buying the perfect sheath dress is to make sure you have about an inch of fabric on either sides of your hips. This is how I make sure I'll be comfortable in it all day. However, I will warn you, I have been shopping with a few friends that are more blessed on top. If you are like my friends, it helps to go up a size because it'll give you more length on the bottom hem and it will also be more comfortable in the arms. It's hard to buy things outside of your regular size but I always say "no one actually sees the number but you". 


My necklace is from my trip to Morocco last summer. It's Amber so it's a bit heavy but it makes the outfit. I love big chunky jewelry. For my post on how to layer jewelry check it out here. 

My fingers are cross for my voice to come back this week!
