What I'm Wearing...

Tank top - J. Crew, Cardigan - Limited, Jeans - Old Navy, Shoes - Express, Sunglasses - Chanel, Earrings - Melinda Maria, Bracelet - Vintage
Ok, so I'm calling the black thing a "cardigan", but I don't know what it is. It used to be a wrap shirt, many years ago. But styles (and my size...) have changed and I'm not wearing shirts that length. Ever. Again. Moving on. So I cut the ribbon/wrap things off of it and threw it over a tank top, and now I don't know what it is. I think I like it. I'm not sure. I need to work on this more and think things out before I make decisions that involve hacking off a good portion of the clothes. This turned out slightly better than when I took scissors to my CK jeans in middle school to try and make cut offs. (How old do I sound right now?)
When you pick your sister up at the airport late Friday night, and it's after midnight when you get home, and your husband says "Just take the pictures tomorrow, you look really tired right now." 1. Inflict pain on your husband 2. Don't listen because you and your now 2nd day curls won't look better tomorrow. 
Trust me.
There are always several pictures that look like this. You'd think a little 11 pound dog who demands roughly 20 hours of attention a day could let you snap a few pictures of your outfit for your blog.
You'd be wrong about that, though.

1) At least they weren't Bongo.

2) You are very, very funny.

(Don't know why I felt the need to number, only having 2 items, but whatever.)

its so crazy to think i will soon have one of those husband things to say that stuff to me! lol luckily im prepared because the bf is already oblivious to the whole "you do not ever say that to me" rule. lol

he also has no clue about taking pictures for blogs. i tried to get him to take some good candid ones of me in paris at the louis XIV apartments (gush) and he was terrible and then got mad when i said it was a bad picture lol. he aint no blogger thats for sure. lucky for me hes good at other stuff :)
ps. love your "not-a-cardigan" cardigan. its super cute!

Bonnie said...

P.S. Brilliant thinking on customizing the wrap/cardigan thingy!

Taj Acosta said...

I love it on you! It kinda has a bolero feel to it! xo

Kavery said...

I did think it was a bolero, a pretty lace one. Sometimes I wish Mischa would ask for a hug like your (cute) dog till I remember she's a cat and they don't do that :)

simple and cute, I like it. And August... so cute.

sacramento said...

I love your new and lighter hair, fantastic.
That lace waist coat is so beautiful.
