monday and its unnoteworthy items of business

Monday, April 23

 Shoes: c/o Frock Candy, Jeans: F21, Elephant print top: ASOS, Blazer: F21
I'm sitting here at the computer desk right now. The computer desk, as opposed to the other place in the house that certain people consider to be an office. There's a plate full of syrup in front of me, home to a former waffle who's obituary would read 'death by Aunt Jemima drowning'. Waffle obituaries ... I could run with that one.
I'm telling you this why? Well, maybe it's cause I consider food bragging to be the best bragging. Or maybe it's cause I have a problem with eating at the kitchen table and this is my keyboard's cry for help. Either way, now you know.
Also in strikingly unimportant items to note, there are elephants on my shirt. And I bought it because first of all ... elephants. And second because it reminded me of what happens when you silently mouth the phrase, elephant shoes {just mouthed it, didn't you}. You've got both a secret love code and the ability to psych out fellow metro passengers all in one. Word. Jackpot.

I'm certain I could live off waffles, and wouldn't complain a single time.

Oh Aunt Jemima, oh how I love her. I just purchased wedges very similar to that from BR! Such a cute outfit! xoxo A-

Sierra said...

I would never consider anything with an elephant printed on it to be "strikingly unimportant." That shirt is the coolest piece of clothing I have seen in a long time.

Love the elephants! Oh and my husband always gives me a hard time when I eat waffles - "having some waffles with your syrup?" :)

Elephant shoes!!! Perfect!

Lace And Tulle said...

I Love this look so much!!! your wedges are amazing!!!

Elise said...

The same result happens by mouthing "olive juice". And when you are younger, you are so cool for figuring that out. Trust me, I was pretty cool from that.

Love the blazer. I think blazers are my fashion go-to for the spring. And, when I lived in DC, I would of totally tried the "elephant shoes" thing on the metro during a.m. rush hour.

Great, great, great outfit, Sydney!

I used to always mouth "elephant food" to my mom and when she'd say "I love you too!" I'd yell back "HA HA I said elephant food!" I thought I was so clever and funny.

engquist said...

It seems that you and I are having similar Monday thoughts...http://www.seewhatiseadesigns.com/2012/04/mondays-according-to-rose.html


Also, one of these days I'm really going to separate myself from my money and finally buy the white skinnies at Zara...you keep me motivated to get them! (: Happy Monday!

A FANCY DAY said...

Ha Elephant shoes that's great, I think we use to watermelon or something as kids. Loving the outfit you look great.

I love how the colors are a reflection of your surroundings. As if the color palette came from nature!

You look lovely, of course ;)

Elizabeth said...

Love. the. Elephants. Espesh sine I'm purchasing a swing for a 3 week old today that has what on it you ask? Elephants. Well, actually the official name of the swing is Elefante, which apparently is the new swanky term for the large animal. Happy Elefante wearing.

I bring my laptop to the kitchen table and eat breakfast in front of it before I start working for the day. My hubs HATES it. Especially when I eat grapefruit and it squirts all over the computer screen. Good thing he's got his own computer to keep all clean and fancy :P
Love your elephant shirt! And, of course, the cute white jeans that I need to find a pair of soon!

Colleen said...

My white jeans are also from F21. Did you have to hem yours? They fit the same as mine do in length but you are shorter so I would think they shouldn't.

Also how do they fit you at the waist? Mine do a lot of gaping and I need a belt bad or my waistband ends up down my butt.

Lottie said...

Waffles! Yum!

I don't have a kitchen table at the moment--so our sofa and coffe table combo is where I eat at the moment if not at my desk.

My husband was not impressed when I ate an orange while at the computer and I thought I had cleared up after myself so well.

wildrosesinfaith said...

I really really love your white jeans! Whenever you post pics of them, I am always like I MUST KNOW WHERE you get them. But there is no link other than for Forever21. Do you have a specific link from there? Whenever I buy white jeans it turns into a disaster because its a bit see-thru. Thanks!
