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.

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!

Adorable! I love it!

January 16, 2011 7:37 PM

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?

that skirt is fierce! yes I said fierce

did you know you are wearing Ravens colors? sorry I actually watched football yesterday and it's on the brain

January 16, 2011 7:39 PM

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!

January 16, 2011 7:45 PM

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!

January 16, 2011 7:46 PM

That skirt is great! Was this the day that your professor called you "purple lips"? :)

January 16, 2011 7:48 PM

Wow what a way to rock coloured tights. I wish I could pull off tights like you!

January 16, 2011 8:15 PM

Lurve the purple legs! Fun coloured tights are so much fun. =D

January 16, 2011 8:24 PM

January 16, 2011 9:42 PM

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 :)

January 16, 2011 9:43 PM

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!

Lovin' the yellow skirt with purple tights!

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.

January 16, 2011 10:14 PM

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.

Sydney, I have to tell you... I got the best compliment ever today! A girl in my word asked, “Do you follow any blogs? Because you totally dress like the girl on The Daybook!” Totally made my day! You’re my fashion inspiration. :)

January 16, 2011 10:31 PM

I love the mustard and purple combo!! You look stunning. And I totally know how you feel in this post :)

January 16, 2011 10:49 PM

January 16, 2011 10:51 PM

my outfit today: black turtleneck, pink skirt, burgundy/wine colored tights. with black boots. so i was kind of just like your outfit today. men seem to be a little weirded out by colored tights.

January 16, 2011 10:53 PM

ahhh this is beautiful! I love the plum/mustard combo, it looks really great :)
I love how you layer your outfits, I always use it as inspiration for my outfits!

January 17, 2011 8:54 AM

I just love this outfit you look absolutely stunning! A really good secret for tights is waiting for them to go on sale at marshalls when they loose a pair they mark them all down to a dollar! I have so many and never wear them! Thank you for inspiring me ton wear them!

January 17, 2011 9:20 AM

I just started following, can't wait to see more!

January 17, 2011 9:47 AM

I just LOVE how you mix color! You make bright colors so sophisticated.

And I love you with dark hair!

January 17, 2011 10:09 AM

At risk of sounding like a creeper...may I just say that you have the cutest legs? You definitely have that lovely ballerina arch to your ankle...great for heels :) And what can make an outfit happier than coloured tights???

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?
