Monday Blues?

It’s Monday, which means there’s probably not enough coffee in the universe to make today bearable.

O.K., maybe that was a little dramatic (or a lot dramatic). But Mondays are pretty rough, am I right?
Luckily, I think most people are in the same boat on Mondays. The tired boat. The unmotivated boat. The I-just-want-to-stay-in-bed-forever boat.

So we’re all in this Monday thing together. With that being said, sometimes it can help to express your mood through your outfit choice. Maybe you want to send off a “don’t speak to me” vibe. I can help with that.
