Cool/Not Cool & an Outfit

January 10, 2013



Oh hi guys. Turns out this little outfit right hurr comes from a pre-Christmas Sunday and just hadn’t made the blog roll yet. So here she be! GBO? Turns out I’ll be gathering outfit ideas over the weekend, cuz lately I feel fresh out of good material. Thank the heavens for Pinterest! (right guys? right? am I right?)

And now I’d say it’s time for some Cool/Not Cool…

Cool: Love.

Not Cool: Love handles.


Cool: Doing squats.

Not Cool: Doing squats over the toilet at the BART Station cuz I REFUSE to put my bum on that thang (or on ANY public restroom toilet for that matter… let’s be serious).

Coat: F.21 (buy here) | Plaid button-up: GAP  | Lace pencil skirt: F.21 (similar) | Heels: Madden Girl via DBShoes | Polka dot tights: H&M | Gold Bracelet & Diamonds Bracelet: H&M and F.21 | Necklace: F.21 (similar)| Bow Ring: F.21 (buy here)

Cool: having a business call.

Not Cool: realizing 3 seconds after dialing into the business call that I am actually about to pee my pants. Awk. Ward. (Next steps: pee-pee dance at desk until I can’t take it any longer, followed by strategic use of the MUTE button and mental prayers that they won’t be able to tell what’s going on in the background while I do my biznass. Awwwwwwwwk. Ward.)

Cool: falling asleep.

Not Cool: falling asleep on the couch downstairs with all of the lights on, t.v. going, computer screen glaring, spooning a bag of Starbursts. Yep – there you have it people: the glamorous life of a fashion blogger.  Pritty Awesome. At least husband fell asleep down there with me… turns out if we’re being real honest, he and I have accidentally maintained a lot of our bachelorish habits: staying up way too late, only eating food that can be cooked in a microwave, crashing on couches in living rooms. Main difference is that now, I get to have a sleepover every night of my life…with a boy…a super HOT boy… who I happen to be in love with… and who I somehow tricked persuaded to be in love with me. Party on Wayne. (Party on Garth) (Wayne’s World! Wayne’s World! Party Time! Excellent!) (Reference, for those of you who are all like ‘What the deuce is she talking about?’ right now)

Cool: clean hair.
Not Cool: pretending to have clean hair by using dry shampoo… three days in a row.

Cool: dry shampoo.

Not Cool: realizing after being in public for a few hours that you didn’t brush your dry shampoo in very well…. but it’s cool to have a white-ish crusty stripe running alongside the part in your hair, right? NBD?

Cool: being inspired.

Not Cool: being inspired only at the most inopportune moments, i.e. while showering, driving, while you should be sleeping but instead are riding out the ‘second wind’ you just got even though it’s 1 a.m. Yep – there you have it people: the glamorous life of an individual who suffers from ADHD and the ‘inspiration only at inopportune moments’ disease. The ONE exception to this: Church. Thanks the heavens for Church or I might never be inspired when I can actually do a darn thing about it.

Come back tomorrah for a sweet GIVEAWAY! Some adorable accessories, coming somebody’s way. Woot Woot!

Have a Thumbelina Thursday! 

thanks for readink!

    Love the outfit, but I especially loved the cool/not cool. I’m glad someone else thinks like me :-)

    Cute outfit. What brand of dry shampoo do you use?

      I use the CHEAP STUFF – Suave baby! It’s like $2 at any Walgreens, Walmart, Target, etc. :)
