good morning. it's february.

Tuesday, February 1

Shoes: c/o WindsorStore, Jeans: F21, Belt: Thrifted, Top: c/o WindsorStore, Blazer: H&M, Earrings: c/o Truly Sarah
Hiya pal. It's February. And man am I excited for this month. January was a toughie. But the month after Christmas is pretty much always depressing. February, my friends! February is so much better. First of all, we get not one, but TWO holidays. And one of them is set aside special, just for me and my lova. I would, however, like to have a chat with the person who decided that it was a good idea to put V-day on a Monday this year. Obviously, they're single.
February is also grand because it's only 28 days long. And I can do anything for 28 days right? Right.
Is it awful that I'm living my life as one gigantic countdown till summer now?

Don't answer that.

LOVE that outfit... you are so gorgeous!!! i want a sparkly top like that too...haha

and uh... i dont think being single we want anything to do with the dreaded vday... id rather it not be on the calendar at all...as it simply helps you feel all the more lonely... so dont go blaming that one on us...maybe it was the boys...haha

I just got a stripey jacket. It truly is the best. I kind of wonder if there's some psychological study somewhere proving that stripes invoke and promote happiness and joy. I bet it's true! I haven't been a reader very long and I was surprised to find out that you're from North Carolina! I went to high school and part of college in Asheville. :)

xo, Kate @keeping up w/the Moreland's said...

can you be any cuter!!??

Katie Blacker said...

yes! February Rocks. probably has to do with the fact that it is my birthday month too ;) But, I love me some Valentines & Presidents day also. Cute CUTE outfit. Stripes are the fashion love of my life.

Elissa said...

Happy February! I love how you're starting it with a bang of sequins and heels. You look fantastic.I too am counting down until summer...this weather is redonk.

Cherokee London said...

Fab outfit! I especially love that H&M blazer.

I thought the exact same thing when I saw that V-day was on a Monday this year. Me and my honey bunches of oats will be celebrating on the weekend before, because we already know we'll be too tired to do anything after school and work on Monday. An excuse for TWO days of dates instead of just one! :-)

Chelsea said...

Sydney,

By far, one of my favorite outfits on you. Since traipsing upon your quaint corner on the web I have become more fashion conscious and everyone is noticing. My closest girl friends, who also follow you, are always going, Total Syd outfit!

Thank you for the laughs and inspiration.

Wonderful Wednesday,
Chelsea
