apparently, the man's a salesman

Wednesday, June 22

 Jeans: Gap, Button up: Old Navy, Top: c/o Threadcase, Sunnies: Cassettes - The Yo, Bangle/Necklace: Greene and Sunset
 Husband sold our very first baby car this past weekend. One second he says, "I'm just gonna go out and talk to this guy about the car real quick ... be right back" and the next he walks through the door as I watch our car drive away through the window. 
Sometimes when I get really mad, I call husband "Poulton". 
That's when he knows things are getting serious.
Well.
POULTON didn't even let me say bye. He just let it drive off.
The car that we had that one favorite date at the drive-in
And went on our honeymoon with
And drove to the east coast and back
With midnight burger runs
And sunday drives
And to school and back every day for 3 years
And hanky panky
And long talks
The car that said "Just Married"

... just drove away. 
Sad face.

It's a good thing I'm really bad at staying mad for very long.

The layering in your outfit is so chic, and your lip color is total eye candy! So sorry to hear about your car, especially with all the good memories attached with it. It's an incredible trait though that you can easily forgive!

haha.... i was sad when we sold two of our cars, but now i don't really mind the one we have (one of them was my grandparents and ours and it was going to the junk yard (that was really hard for me!)

when will you find out what the bump is?

love the outfit!

Morgan said...

Aw, that's annoying. Everything will workout though, everything has a purpose. :)

Well...at least you sold it! But so sad you didn't get to say goodbye, like my mom always says "The memories are still there!" (Thanks mom)

Kelly Hicks said...

Aww, that is kinda sad. :( But now you'll have a new car to make a whole new series of memories! Love your outfit! That salmon colored shirt is so cool!

Alison said...

In the 9 years I've been driving, I've had to say goodbye to two cars. Both times I got ridiculously choked up and felt completely pathetic haha!

On another note, I'm LOVING those jeans. I'm way too short to wear them so I'll be living vicariously through you!

Stephanie said...

Aw, that's too bad. Btw, I'm amazed at how easily you can hide that baby bump!!

Monica Whitney said...

Ohh. Be grateful he is a salesman. Whenever we try to sell anything it goes a little like this.."Oh, you probably don't want it anyways..it's not that great of a deal..we're just trying to get rid of it". My husband and I are great salespeople...as you can tell.

I love that second photo of you! The dark jeans and the layered shirts! Holy Chic! Awh, I'm so sorry your husband sold the car without letting you say farewell! It'll all be okay! There will be other cars with better adventures soon. <3

Jessie K said...

And that is precisely why we haven't sold our Camaro yet, even tho nothing works on it any more. Too many memories for both of us.

awww its hard to say goodbye to a car that has so many memories!

on a positive note, the bump is looking fabulous ;)

Gentri said...

Aw! I can understand that "bond" we get with our cars, and I'm so sorry you didn't get to say goodbye. ON the possitive side- you look AMAZING! LOVE this outfit!! Seriously, I love it ALL!

this look is so chick and stylish

Ale said...

Actually, my hubs and I NEED to say bye to my old car. Poor Nessie has been alive since 99' and is still serving as our second car. She's a beast!

And I also LOVE the pairing of that salmon top with the navy blue. But I'm also in love with a lot of things salmon/coral this summer ;)

lady lyles said...

Boys are so dumb sometimes. Even the cute ones. However, (unlike the guys I date) I bet Poulton knows just how to make it up to you. ; )

CessOviedo said...

It's funny how we attach to things like cars, but I totally understand the feeling, it had so many memories on it, luckily you have a new one and create more happy memories!

Did your car have a name? I think my mom cried when she had to get rid of "Betsy", our family mini-van. You're not alone!

AJD ∞ said...

Oh man. I do not do well with good-byes between me and sentimental things. I feel your pain.

On a positive note, CUTE PINK SWEATER THING. ;] Haha.

Sorcha said...

Your lipstick is AMAZING, especially along with the dark wash flares.

That's so sad about your car! I'm really bad for getting overly attached to inanimate objects - too many memories attached!

Song Anh said...

Awe, I'm so sad that you didn't get to say "bye" to your baby car either! At least you get to keep all memories because the car without your memories will just be a car. So as long as you have your memories and the people you've made them with, it is the only thing you need. I hope you cheer up soon and make new great memories with your next car! I bet this one will be better after your newborn arrives!

Aside from that, you look fantastic in this outfit. You kind of remind me of a young Rachel Zoe with those bell bottoms! Oh, and your belly is almost nonexistent until you show it off. Great outfit if that's the look you're going for. So cute!

Sydney, that top with the eyelet is so cute. And I love the dusky light.

but most importantly - what color lipstick is that?

Jet said...

I wish it was cool enough outside right now that I could layer like that. Helllllo 111 degree temperature?! Ew. So I will settle for living vicariously thru you and your blog. Yay! -Jet

Holly said...

it's going to be ok! you're gonna get a new car and it'll have even better memories, bringing the baby home from the hospital, the 3rd loop around the block to get him/her to sleep, taking him/her to their first soccer game....see what i mean? soo much better ;)

kelseywilliams said...

hanky panky, eh? :)
congrats on selling the car, though!

Holly said...

I'm obviously a sap because I got a bit choked up reading this. What's wrong with me?! We are about to seel one of our two cars, and I totally would be upset too if I didn't get to say goodbye!

Sherrel said...

Dig the layering in your outfit. I also love that pink top.

Bre said...

Adorable, layered outfit. I love the jeans, and your lipstick is great. Sorry about the car, but think of the new memories you will make with the new one! New to your blog by way of Wildcats and Wolfpacks, it's really cute!

London said...

I need your POULTON to come and sell my baby car. It has been up for about three weeks and nada! Seems no one wants a two seater convertable (w/ good gas mileage) except me. And I can't keep it. :(

Camille said...

When one door closes (errr... when a car drives off) another door opens (a new car drives in)! Your sad face will soon be replaced with joyful smiles. :)

I love this outfit! Especially the color and textured block layers. You're so stylish Sydney! :)

Aw, those are some good memories. You'll make some great new memories in your new car I'm sure. It will literally be your "baby-mobile". Lookin' like a hot mama already!

Honestly, I still can't tell your pregnant. You look great!
And I know how you feel about the car. When my (ex)boyfriend of 3 years sold his car I was so sad! And it was just to his sister! Haha

janel said...

Oh how sad! We're selling our first car this month too! Your baby bump is so cute & little! I wish I looked like you with my pregnancies!

Is there a new car in the future?

oh how sad when a piece of your history just disappears :( but now you can make new memories with your new baby in a new car!

Katie said...

I think this must be a girl thing because my husband sold his car a year after we were married and I was like, "Aren't you so sad?" He's like, "Ummm, no." I had to remind him this was the car we felt in love in!!

elise said...

hanky panky? really??

Teresa said...

That's exactly what happened with MAX. One second we were "looking" at cars the next second he wasn't ours anymore. WHAT?!?!?! I always felt like he left without so much as an appreciative word for all the Rexburg icy grocery store trips, picnics in the park, formal dance escorts, a ride to dinner on the heating vent,honeymoon trip, drive-up ice cream at Larsen's Frostop, first blind date, first make-out, first ski trip, rockin' out with the windows down to Boston on Conference Weekend, first move from one apt to another, subbing as the elders quorum moving van, cookies in the snow, tailgate chats and the smell of coconut haystacks. Dang! I was so sad! Just for the record, I love and miss you, Maxie-poo.

Jenni Austria Germany said...

my dad did the same thing to me. sucks, huh.

also, if i didn't know you were pregnant...i wouldn't know you were pregnant. well, except for the whole tummy rubbing photo.

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

aw that would make me sad too. love the top you are rocking today.

taimitogetdressed said...

That is so funny that you call him "Poulton" when you're mad! I'm going to have to use that...

Adorable outfit, lady!

MMH said...

Sydney...you always entertain and inspire. You're brilliant at putting those creative outfits together. Thanks for sharing your talent...and congrats on the baby bump!

Miss Celeste said...

OK

i feel SUPER rad...because i totally have that striped shirt!

haha

and i totally know how you feel...that happened to me with my car, my bro sold it for me before i even knew someone was looking at it...it was my first car :[

How are you still wearing your pre-pregnancy pants still!? Are you using a Bella band or something? You look great! How many weeks are you now?

Allison Taylor said...

I have no idea how you couldn't stay mad. Last summer my parents sold my car, a beat up old copper colored isuzu trooper (from when they just got married) with little notice, and I was so bummed! I'm still bummed!

p.s. You're threadcase top is SO cute!

Laura said...

Aww sorry you didn't get to say bye! That is a bummer. But I bet whatever you replace it with will allow you to make totally new awesome memories in it!

Loving your cute little cropped top, and how you layered it.

Sydney said...

Aw, thanks so much everybody!! I love love love your comments so much every day!

And elise - YES. Hanky Panky. We're wild married ones we are ...

Kristin said...

Oooo. I'm going to recreate this outfit verrrrry soon. You're so good at layering! And the colors here are perfect!

Che said...

It is really sad when the car you made so many memories in is gone. :[ I was so sad when my fiancee sold his truck. I still miss it (which sounds pretty silly).

Katie said...

Boys never understand that we have memories attached to things, do they? Silly boys. :)

This outfit is SO GREAT. Just so great. I have found a lot of loose cropped tops that I have loved but never know how to wear them properly. You have shown me the way. Thank you, lady. :)

wiley said...

this top is just lovely and you look so happy and full of life.

congratulations!

it's always hard to say goodbye, but new exciting adventures are around the corner for you and your family.

This outfit is too cute!! Those two tops are brilliant together. Sorry about not being able to say bye to your car, but for me anyways it's easier to not have to say bye at all. I prefer to just move on to the next thing and look forward to new happy memories.

:( I know what you mean! My husband and I have to sell our cars. My car that belonged to my mother before she died. The car that we drove around in on our wedding day and night. Our only car for the first few months of marriage, and the car that we have watched fall apart. It's hard.
