The Emperor And Her Clothes

Posted By on November 17, 2011

If you’ve read more than one blog post on this here site, I’m pretty sure you’re aware that I love to sleep. It is my most favorite thing to do in the entire world. That is not an exaggeration. I would gladly sleep 10-12 hours a day if I was able to. No joke.

Because of this, my main goal in life is usually to find things that save me time in the morning when I’m getting ready for work so I can sleep more. Even a precious seven minutes I get when I slap the shit out of the snooze button.

I’ve learned to make my lunch ahead of time, only wash my hair every other day, get my work bag all set out and ready, etc. I also get my clothes out the night before. This saves OODLES of time when you aren’t staring into your closet hemming and hawing over what to wear.

I even get my clothes out and hung the night before. See, because I learned this magic trick that if you spray the clothes with water, smooth them out and let them hang to dry, you will never have to iron again. You don’t need that Downy Wrinkle Reducer people. That is just fresh smelling water. Just water. There are no wrinkle-reducing chemicals in there. I just saved you hundreds of dollars! YOU’RE WELCOME!

I hang them like this:

When I was contemplating doing NaBloPoMo, I was trying to think of ideas for posts and she mentioned doing an outfit recap like she does on her blog. My problem with that is a) I never have time to take a photo in the morning (see above re: slapping the snooze button) and b) I leave my house in work clothes and tennis shoes. My work shoes are in my bag and I don’t put them on until work.

So maybe, instead, I’ll show you my clothes as they hang on my hallway closet doors and post a weekly outfit review. What say you?


Also, wish me luck! I’m having my oral surgery tomorrow!

    I am not usually a fan of outfit of the day posts, but once a week is tolerable/skimmable. But this is your blog, you can do what you want to! 🙂

    Hope your surgery goes smoothly!

    Today is surgery day. Just picture me giving you a neck rub right about now – because you probably could use one. Be well.

    Too funny…I am the same way in the morning and take most of the same shortcuts that you do. I even use water to spray & dewrinkle my clothes. I don’t even know where my iron is anymore! If I only didn’t have to get 3 kids out the door in the morning, I could really sleep late!
