Winter Vacation

Once a month I have to attend a meeting for work that starts at 6 pm and can run as long as over three hours. Considering that I arrive at the office a bit after 8 am, it makes for a very long day (especially so because the meetings fall on Mondays, basically the last day of the week you want to be working for 12+ hours). I wore this on one such Monday because I desperately wanted to be as comfortable as possible and an oversized sweater kicked up a notch with a truly obnoxious and sparkly statement necklace really checked that box for me.

In other news, as I wrote this I was in British Columbia, where I ran off to the mountains for a few days with a group of friends to ski, ride alpine gondolas, eat delicious resort food, and generally just have a relaxing few days of winter vacation. I gotta say, the break did me good!

Twelve hour Mondays sound absolutely horrific - and it's precisely because of what you described in this post that I put my foot down a few years ago and said that I don't do anything for work that I don't get paid for (which is so often expected in salaried positions.) I still spend more hours at the office than I should, but management is a bit more - let's say thoughtful, about what they ask me to do and honestly, best decision I've ever made.

I always give my staff eithera morning or afternoon off in lieu of attending the meeting or time and a half in terms of salary for the evening (and I usually don't roll into work until 10 am or 11am the next day) - I try to be a good manager, ha ha!

twelve hour mondays are no one's idea of a good time. they need to schedule these meetings on thursday mornings and give everyone pastry.

Glad you did have a nice little getaway though! Definitely the time of year when you feel like you've been cooped up for too long and need to get away.

The sweater and necklace look outstanding Courtney, beautifully worn.
