Though I love wearing dresses and sparkly things, through and through I’m a jeans and t-shirts kind of girl. So when Pickwick & Weller sent me one of their t-shirts I was absolutely down to give it a try. And I thought what better way to try out the fit and comfort of a tee than wearing it all day.
Pickwick & Weller makes high quality shirts in LA with a crazy attention to detail. They offer several cuts in tees and tanks and are pretty confident that you’ll find a fit and style you’ll love. The even have a fun little quiz for you to take to help you find the perfect fit. I opted for the scoop neck shirt in the classic cut. It’s incredibly soft without feeling like it’s instantly going to tear.
So while I gave my new shirt a test run, I wanted to share a snippet of what my life looks like each day. I think a lot of people (myself included) think bloggers have glamorous lives filled with travel and eating pretty things. Though I’m thankful to say I get to do those things, my life as a full time blogger isn’t as glamorous as you may think. So here’s what my day usually looks like, no make-up, chipped nail polish and top knot included.
7:00-ish I try my best to get out of bed around 7 although if I’ve been I up all night working this is sometimes hard to do. So when I force myself to get up, I take Darcy out and feed her and then get dressed and head to the gym by 8-ish.
9:00 Once I’m back home from the gym, I make some breakfast. My usual breakfast as of late is an egg over easy, with a few slices of avocado on whole grain toast topped with sriracha and a small glass of oj. It’s delicious and take only a couple of minutes to make. I then do dishes, laundry or any other chores around the house then shower. I like to be at my desk by 10 a.m.
10:00-1:00 My first work task of the day is going through my inbox and replying to emails. So. Many. Emails. I also reply to blog and social media comments first thing in the morning. I try to get this out of the way so I have more time to work on projects and posts. Although, some days I spend most of the day just emailing and not creating. These kind of days aren’t my favorite.
I don’t like drinking coffee first thing in the morning so I stop for my “coffee break” around 11:30 and take a couple minutes to check Twitter and my Feedly feed. I love to sit and drink coffee in our den because it’s the room with the best light in the entire house. After my coffee break I usually jump into a project. Most often DIY projects for posts take a few days to complete. Once an idea pops into my head, I use materials I already have to make a prototype of sorts (like these arrow ornaments that I will share later).
1:00-ish I stop for lunch. This usually involves throwing together a salad or eating leftovers in the kitchen.
1:30 – dinner Work, work, work. This means working on posts, making a huge mess in my office, photographing and styling, lots and lots of editing. I also still do a bit of graphic design so I usually work on these projects in the afternoon. I usually work until around 6:30 and start cooking dinner.
P.M. Once dinner is all cleaned up, more often the not, I go back to my desk and continue working. The weekends look very similar to my weekdays except I skip the gym and go ride my horse and usually the Mr. and I try to have a date too.
After wearing the scoop neck tee all day I think this may become one of my new favorites. If you want to give Pickwick & Weller a try, head over to their site and take the quiz to help you find the perfect fit, and you’ll receive a discount code for 25% off your order of $50 or more.
