Naps



{Wearing: Zara Top (old), Modcloth Skirt (old), Matt & Nat Clutch, H&M Belt, Top Shop Pumps, Fossil Multifunction Watch}

This weekend was a 3 day weekend for me so it was a little disappointing when I woke up Friday morning with a cold. I had a pretty laid back weekend planned so I spent most of it resting and napping. Now that I am feeling better I have realized that I need more naps in my life. I always considered them a waste of time but in reality they are a glorious waste of time. I just need to get better at napping. On the rare occasion I do take a nap it takes me the amount of time I had intended on napping to fall asleep and when I do wake up I'm groggy and sleepy. I need to get better at passing out quickly and waking up after 30 minutes refreshed. I am well aware that I just need more practice at napping and am fully committed to taking as many naps as I need to in order to master the process. Practice starts today after work. Or during. Whichever.

  2. You're pattern mixing is killer. And I am not a napper. I either need 3 hours to take what I consider a real map or just to suck it up and make it through the rest of my day. 30 minutes just makes me miserable and sad!

  14. Perfect mix of patterns! I used to be a napper and then got out of the habit. Sometimes a short sleep does a world of good.... I might practice napping too...

  15. My boyfriend used to harp on me so much for napping but I LOVE a weekend afternoon nap. You're right, it's a GLORIOUS waste of time.

    I love how you mixed those two prints! I especially love the print on the skirt.

  19. I practice the art of napping as often as I can, but I have yet to master getting up after 30 minutes all refreshed. I've been able to do it after an hour, but usually I'm out for 2!

  26. These two prints could not be more perfect together! You look adorable.
    And as for naps... I'm the same. I wish I could work out a way to 'power nap' but I always wake up feeling groggy and then can't get to sleep that night...
