the thing about brains

Today I was having some brain problems. Nothing serious. Just some technical difficulties in the Frontal Lobe of my Cerebrum. {That's where you do all of your thinking you know} Do I sound smart now? Cause I use big words? Good. Because today, while I was having those brain problems, I asked husband what I should blog about. I couldn't think of a darn thing. And so husband, sitting over there on the couch with his smart little glasses, reading his fancy schmancy Harvard Case Study said, "Why don't you blog about Contingent Environmental Liabilities?"
Right.
Yes Husband. Why don't I blog about Contingent Environmental Liabilities? Because I happen to know exactly what that is. Not only that, but I'm actually an expert on that particular aspect of Business Law.

Show off. See if I ask him next time I'm low on inspiration.
Anyway.
I guess I like that he's smarter than me. Or at least more business savvy. I get to be the artsy-fartsy one, and he can be the brain. And then we'll grow old and be very happy together ... him with his logic and me with my emotions. Him with his square glasses and me with my cat-eyes.

Yeah I get that feeling with my boyfriend, I do Ancient History and Archaeology, he does Astrophysics...his sounds a lot smarter than mine, mine just makes me sound like a crazy person living in the past.

Your outfit is adorable today I love the blue and grey together.

Aren't you frozen standing in the snow with no coat on? You're clearly a human radiator to stand such temperatures and still smile beautifully.

Katie Aman said...

Haha! That sounds like something my hubby would do, except it would be about computers instead of business...:)
Love the outfit!! Great colors-it looks beautiful on you!

S. said...

I love this outfit, Sydney! It's coordinated without being too matchy-matchy -- I love the subtle play of the different shades of grey and blue and brown.

Also, mad props for braving the cold. Seriously.

Alessandra said...

Syd, I usually browse your cute outfits but today I HAD to say something. I'm a huge fan of wearing the same color with different fabrics and you are rocking it out here. You're inspiring...keep doing what your doing.

Unfortunately I'm thinking I probably do that to my fiance sometimes because I'm a business major. Funny story!

p.s. Loving your outfit today.

Kayla said...

My hubs and I are both on the artsy-fartsy side. Take it from me love on yours for having such a brain. Don't get me wrong we are super fun and always happy... but things like remembering to pay bills and fixing things in a timely matter is lost to both of us!

I love your tights. I need a pair!

The other half and me are like a couple of five year olds half the time and adult supervision is alarmingly lacking (although sometimes I pretend I am very serial) :D

I love your entire blog and read some questions on your formspring and just wanted to give you some kudos for being so awesome, explaining our faith to others, and for being so fashionable and fun.

Brandilyn said...

one time i asked my husband to stop playing with his golf clubs and tell me what to write a short story about for a creative writing class, and he said, "write about a husband who only wants to golf but his wife won't let him." so i did. and it was awesome.

and you look adorable :)

Love this outfit. Sometimes the matching thing just totally works. You nailed it. Also, I happen to think you're very intelligent. You're engaging, visionary, and approachable all at the same time, and look at your successful pants. (not your pants literally. No pun intended. or maybe I do mean that...) Love ya girl!

AllyM said...

LOVE this! Going to start my 30 for 30 in January.

Alivia said...

I love the conclusion of this post, not to mention your outfit. I need more colored tights! They're going on my Christmas list. Do you ever wear two at a time (for warmth or layer a solid under cutouts?)? I tried it last week and it was lovely!

How do you make the snow outfits look so cute? I'm experiencing my first snowy winter as a California gal recently moved to Amsterdam and feel like I'm dressed like a 9yr old boy every time I leave our flat!!

Cathy said...

Haha! My boyfriend is studying to be a civil engineer so he's got one of those math/science-people brains. He's also passionate about politics. When he talks about certain things (most, actually), I get soooo lost.
