rainbows and sunshine. not.

Tuesday, March 20

Shoes: Gap, Leggings: c/o Windsor, Top: c/o Frock Candy, Jacket: AE, Fur collar: cut from vest, Watch: Gift, Sunglasses: Target
Cranky, cantankerous, snappy, Oscar the Grouch-ish, disagreeable, petulant, definitely awoken from the wrong side of the bed, creature from the black lagoon, borderline jerkface, closely resembling an actual mama bear.
Just a sampling of the words you could have used to describe me yesterday evening. The day was long yet somehow there weren't enough hours, the babe got shots and wouldn't sleep, my sneezing, runny-nosed tank was on empty, and Tyson was home but had to stay up working late which I hate maybe more than anything.
So I'm thinking that this morning when Everett woke up at 6 instead of 7 and Tyson took him downstairs, put him back to sleep, got ready and left for work without waking me up, that he was doing it for his own protection. But man, am I grateful. I got to sleep in an extra 2 hours this morning. 2 hours!! That's a straight up party. Straight up Michael Buble and whatever that "feeling good" song is that he sings. So rock on Tuesday. And thanks Tys.

Aw what a nice hubby you have! You deserved those two hours. :)

March 20, 2012 10:29 AM

Hehe... I just love you Sydney. You are entitled to days like that. I have more than my fair share, and I'm not even a mother. Unless you count mother to two fur-children, which is a job I take VERY seriously.

And super cute outfit! I always enjoy seeing what you come up with!

March 20, 2012 10:34 AM

Super Cute outfit!!!!!! Oh, so glad I was not the only cranky Mama yesterday..... Those days are so yuck, but glad they pass by quickly!!!!

March 20, 2012 10:43 AM

oh no..poor thing. everyone has their breaking point, i hope the rest of the week picks up for you :-)


March 20, 2012 10:48 AM

New wedding ring? Looks purty!

March 20, 2012 10:50 AM

oooh, how sweet of Tyson! :) You've found yourself the best man!

I love your outfit too =) very risky I'd say! xo

March 20, 2012 10:54 AM

Hope you're feeling better today. That man of yours is a good one...

Have a great day!

March 20, 2012 10:55 AM

such a cute/casual outfit! i love the fur :)

March 20, 2012 10:58 AM

I have leather leggings that I have yet to wear...I was thinking I missed the boat on it, but this gives me hope to still bust them out.

March 20, 2012 10:59 AM

Love the look lady!

March 20, 2012 11:04 AM

cute outfit!! love the photos!!

March 20, 2012 11:04 AM

Love your pants!!! Makes me want to get a pair :)

March 20, 2012 11:05 AM

I have this same leggings from
Windsor but I am so scared to wear them! I am afraid I am going to leave the house looking like cat women or that I am a little to early for Halloween! Do you have any suggestion you could give me on how to wear them the right way?:) please! Thanks so much!

March 20, 2012 11:06 AM

i love you sydney, but why did you take your post about wanting to work?

March 20, 2012 11:09 AM

you make me laugh at least 3 times a week. love it!

March 20, 2012 11:11 AM

This outfit is adorable! That should make you feel better in itself! xoxo A-

March 20, 2012 11:15 AM

I'm such an emotional designer/writer. I was draaaaagging yesterday. I'm feeling 20% better today.

Momma says there'll be days like these my momma says....


March 20, 2012 11:16 AM

I was having one of those days yesterday as well. But you look so fabulous, really regretting giving away my jean jacket.

March 20, 2012 11:17 AM

Here's to happy babies, nice weather, and an un-grumpy Sydney!

March 20, 2012 11:20 AM

I love, love, love your outfit! I can't get enough stripes and jean jackets. So cute! Hope you have a way better day today!


March 20, 2012 11:45 AM

Love it :)

March 20, 2012 12:00 PM

that is SO sweet that your husband got up with the baby and put him back down. that would be a weekday dream :) my little guy was up at 5am this morning, and only took an hour nap, so i imagine i will be feeling about the same tonight.

March 20, 2012 12:04 PM

lucky you for those 2 extra hours. here's to a better day today!

March 20, 2012 12:11 PM

Oh that was from a year ago. I was messing around with some old posts and it was accidentally republished. And THEN deleted. Stupid blogger. Hopefully I'll be able to put it back in the archives using google reader.

March 20, 2012 12:22 PM

Glad you're feeling better! Happy Tuesday!
And love your outfit!

If you really want a soundtrack to feeling good after a day of feeling not so good (and, by the way, so glad you're running on a slept-in-two-hours high; those are the best), try Nina Simone's Feeling Good: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8tuTSi6Sck. Her voice is indescribably amazing.

March 20, 2012 12:50 PM

glad you are feeling better today! you look adorable, i love those pants!


March 20, 2012 12:50 PM

Love every items of your outfit!

March 20, 2012 12:57 PM

Definitely a simple but chic outfit!

March 20, 2012 1:40 PM

What a good hubby you have my dear-I know how tough getting shots can be for the little ones. My son Wyatt usually runs a pretty high fever and won't sleep afterwards. It can be very stressful on us mommas.

Wishing you more sleep and relaxation in the days to come!


March 20, 2012 1:42 PM

Drooling over this outfit! I must copy the whole thing...hot perfection!!


March 20, 2012 2:04 PM

What a very thoughtful husband you have. : ) I love how you paired the non-symmetrical top with those awesome skinny jeans. Very cute!

So many grumpy adjectives!

I really really love that top with those leggings, also.


March 20, 2012 2:49 PM

I just found your blog and I'm already obsessed with it! You look beautiful and I love your top! :)


March 20, 2012 2:53 PM

March 20, 2012 3:02 PM

ahh I so have days like that. Love your outfit, especially the fur+leather combo.

March 20, 2012 3:15 PM

Ha! Isn't it nice when all is good again? Sleep will do it:)

March 20, 2012 3:34 PM

i hate those kinds of days. i'm impressed with how many analogies you came up with! this reminds me of the children's book: "terrible, horrible, no good very bad day". Hope today is better! xo

March 20, 2012 3:34 PM

amazing touch of fur!


March 20, 2012 3:41 PM

I think we all deserve a few days like this. Keep smiling pretty lady! Xo

March 20, 2012 5:38 PM

Haha I know that feeling! And not being able to shake it off and (secretly) indulging in it sometimes! Hope today was better and that's good man you have! -JB.

March 20, 2012 7:00 PM

That hi-lo tank is awesome!!


March 20, 2012 7:01 PM

Your husband deserves a virtual hug and a trophy because he won the best husband award.


March 20, 2012 7:19 PM

Beautiful outfit, I am loving your top! I think Tyson gets bonus points for that. Lots and lots of them. xo


March 20, 2012 8:16 PM

Ohmygoodness, I love your hair! I'd say its the perfect messy bun:) I hope you all feel better soon!

March 20, 2012 8:17 PM

Oh gawsh, I think I've thought and experienced this way too many times to count. Cheers to first-time motherhood, demanding baby boys, and helpful, loving husbands.

March 20, 2012 8:38 PM

So cute! I love the leggings. They remind me of Olivia Palermo!

March 20, 2012 8:52 PM

Boo hiss. I do hate bad days! On the bright side, you're looking lovely as always!

March 20, 2012 8:54 PM

You're very lucky! 3 kids (3rd baby is 8 months) and my husband has never done anything like that!!! Your family is so cute!

March 20, 2012 9:09 PM

Oh feel better! And bless Tys! Sounds like a smart and yet considerate man :) You look adorable in the photos! Love that the jean jacket is making a come back! An your touch of fur on it :)

March 20, 2012 9:23 PM

Loving those sunglasses! :)

March 21, 2012 12:36 AM

Oh the leather pants......



March 21, 2012 4:19 AM

Cute shots! I was wondering whether you take your pictures with a tripod or does someone take them for you? again that outfit is beautiful!

March 21, 2012 7:56 AM

2 extra hours sounds like a little piece of heaven! I regret every time I didn't take a nap or sleep in before I had a baby!

March 21, 2012 8:30 AM

hate days like that! But you looked super cute! ;) love this outfit! xo


March 21, 2012 8:35 AM

March 21, 2012 10:35 AM

so i am dying to know how you wear such things with out your g line showing!!! i am a newly-wed and though it would be a very mormon-centric post, i think you should do a post on the transition of clothes and how to make it easier on yourself! love your blog sydney!

March 22, 2012 12:02 AM

i love the layering of this outfit!



March 22, 2012 12:52 AM
