hi. my legs are purple.

Sunday, January 16



Shoes: Jessica Simpson, Tights: Simply Vera Wang, Skirt: Ruche, Turtleneck: c/o YesStyle, Necklace: giveaway win! c/o Pig and Pepper
You guys. I have nothing to say. Maybe cause it's Sunday night and my mom is sitting next to me and I've had an entire bar of dark chocolate and suddenly have this crazy itch to go design something {don't worry. it's not my blog header} So. I'm gonna go do that. Design something I mean. And maybe have another round of dark chocolate. And try and not feel guilty about the four and a half hour nap that husband and I took this afternoon. And feel even less guilty about the dirty dishes in my sink.
Maybe tomorrow I'll have something worth saying. In the mean time. If you're terribly bored. You can go read this thingy from my archives. Cause it's kind of how I'm feeling right now. AND cause you can {yet again} see my olden days dark locks. Like you care. AND cause everyone needs a good archived post in their life every once in a while.
kloveyoubye

And today I'm grateful for my fancy dancy hot chocolate maker that I got for Christmas. Because obviously I don't have enough chocolate in my life already

I totally know what you mean! I was about to post tonight, but I had no idea what to write underneath my outfit pictures. Maybe it's just one of those days!

Don't worry! Happens to all of us. Sometimes it's just our daily routine that catches up to us! Plus your tights are purple, that has to count for something right?

Kiki said...

Purple and yellow is seriously my favorite color combination. I'm wearing it today. :)

Plus, don't feel bad, because i've pretty much felt that way this whole week because i've been terribly sick. Dark chocolate and designing are the best remedies! Have fun! And I do care..I check your blog every day.:) Thank you!

A sharp black turtleneck with a pencil skirt is one of my favorite, most classic outfits EVER! And these crazy pops of color make it sublime. Cheers!

Elizabeth Benfield said...

this skirt is amazing for 2 reasons: 1) most obviously, the color and 2) the pleats and pockets would help with my lack of hips. to sum it up ... i need it in my life :)

Justine said...

I was going to say something today on Blogger. I had it all planned out in my head, but when I reached the keyboard, it disappeared!

I felt the exact same way today! Sure, I wrote a lot on my blog today, but it was about nothing, and only there because my 30 for 30 pictures looked too lonely up there by their little selves.

i love the colors of your outfit. so beautiful!

also, i know what you mean about wanting to design something. unfortunatley, my blog header usually suffers the wrath of my design itch.
i've changed it so many times i don't even remember what the original one looked like!

happy sunday.

Love the colors together! I have a question..did you actually wear this outfit out? :) I've been struggling with this fashion blogging business! I'm a stay at home mom so most of the time, I'm not wearing heels or anything super glamorous but I feel the need to take creative shots for the blog. Do you always wear the looks you feature out?
