Most mornings I'm lucky to wake after the third alarm shocks me out of a near-dead sleep. I am constantly reminding myself to pack gym clothes the night before in order to save a few precious moments come daylight. Without fail, only half my hair will curl the way I want it to, the skirt I tossed in the infamous hoard pile is purposely hiding and my cat is so cute that I have to snuggle her for a minimum of five minutes.

Needless to say, accessorizing is an afterthought.

While standing among a herd of a dozen other budget-conscious women in the dressing room line at Forever 21, pre-sweating* and overhearing bountiful tales of teenage drama (and thus wondering how many years I can shop at F21 before a friend or loved one takes me on the Maury Show to say "you think you're all that, but you can't wear that") (also, yes, the Maury Show is still relevant), I spotted a bright, cheery piece of neck-wear. Not thinking any longer than it took to check for noticeable rust, I bought the damn thing. Today I am pleased to report it has been worn three times, twice of which was during the work week.

My relationship with accessories is on the upswing!

Please notice the three day old band-aid I forgot on my foot.

*Pre-sweating (v): the act of knowing one will sweat due to nervousness, self-consciousness, awkwardness, agitation, distress or standing in the dressing room line at the local Forever 21, but has not yet begun sweating
