I just read this post by Mindy Kaling where she says

"My New Year’s resolution is to do a seven-day juice cleanse starting December 31st! I’ve done a 21-day cleanse and it was the best three weeks of my life. I was so clear-headed and funny and skinny and I felt superior to everyone else, too. May you begin your year with your own little superiority complex!" 
Well Mindy, don't mind if I do.

I feel redonkulous doing a style post because on a scale of one to ten I'm at a three. I'm not wearing crocs with socks but given the option of getting dressed or staying in my pajamas I choose pajamas. Actually I chose pajamas, for like a year. I have only worn a uniform two times in my life. First was when I was a cheerleader in high school and then again when I worked from home. Both were pink, but only one was comfortable.

People say that when you work from home you have to pretend like you work in an office and therefore get dressed up and stuff like that. That's crazy talk. The benefit of working from home is that you work from home! No one is going to see you except your husband, who's already committed to you so whateves, and your children one of which wears costumes all day anyway so for her seeing me in my pink fluffy robe, day in and day out was completely normal.

And then two months ago I started working in the office every day. Gone were the days of lounging in my pink robe and in were the days of feeling inadequate because I sit next to not one but two fashion editors. I take about three minutes to get dressed every morning. Luckily I have curly hair so it's not like I can brush it anyway. But still, three minutes is a little pathetic.

So in an effort to look more profesh I have decided to add one new item of clothing to my wardrobe every month and take more than three minutes to get an outfit together. This month was the H&M pants.

Here's to five minutes of getting dressed!

While I look at food all day my co-workers look at style blogs all day. Today they were checking out this blog. Is this outfit a ten or what?! The day I can pull off wearing overalls and turbans I'll be super rockin'.
