Casual Monday... Can we make that a "thing"?

As you know, I'm still gallivanting around Italy, having the most amazing time, but I planned this post before I left and wanted to make sure it didn't go to waste.  Since I'm still on holiday, I got to thinking about the concept of "Casual Friday" and how it's really all just a state of mind.  "Casual Friday" doesn't necessary mean that you need to dress casual... I for one, have been known to where my most fabulous pieces in celebration of the weekend.  In my opinion, the term "Casual Friday" is all about a state of mind – one that is positive, optimistic and ready to take on whatever comes your way – so much better than it's counterpart... "Manic Monday"!

So today (while I'm on vacation) I'm officially declaring this "Casual Monday" and changing my state of mind to one that is positive, optimistic and letting the day flow naturally.   Who knows, once I'm back in the real world, my outlook may change, but I hope that I bring back with me a little bit of the Italian lifestyle.  One phrase I wont forget is, "il dolce far niente", which is an Italian phrase that means, "the sweetness of doing nothing" – something I'm becoming quite good at.
