hump day {poor wednesday gets the worst nickname}

Wednesday, May 9

Boots: Urban Outfitters, Jeans: F21, Sweater: c/o The Impeccable Pig, Headband: the depths of my bathroom cupboard P.S. I'm just gonna go ahead and preface this post with the disclaimer that this headband is much less of a style statement and much more of a showering is pretty much a joke today statement. Just keepin' it honest. I'm aware that I look like an egg head. Carry on.
This week has been rather un-magical so far. Shots and babies with sore legs does not a happy household make. But this morning I woke up to a swift smack in the face and a little boy obsessed with testing how stretchy my lips are. Translation: he's feeling better. Today is going to be a good day. Maybe rainy. But that's OK. Everett likes helping me hold the umbrella anyway. And I finally get my husband back after he eats the GMAT for breakfast on Saturday. {We've got our celebratory pom-poms and a 'go daddy' cheer ready over here!} So that's certainly a bright spot.

When it was small (the picture, on my phone) it looked like you chopped and dyed just your bangs black. Haha, glad to see its a headband :)

J+H @ Beyond The Stoop said...

it's been rainy and pretty un-magical around here (Jersey City) too...

if it weren't for the day job i'd be sitting at home watching old seasons of Parenthood all snuggled up on the couch... best show EVER!!

Maggie said...

Elise said...

WOOT for headbands on days that aren't shower worthy. :D I like seeing the bloggers I admire doing that too.

engquist said...

Is it wrong that I miss the rain? The rainy season is officially gone and I think the days of clouds are coming to an end until fall. And I totally understand the whole GMAT thing. My tall guy is still a ways off from it (like a few years) but is cramming whenever he can.

Actually I think the headband goes with the folky-ness of the sweater..which by the way, I am going to go and purchase now!

Well, I'm now the owner of one of those sweaters. I couldn't stop myself. I'd get the boots, too...but, I'm going to attempt some control over here. Happy Day to you and E!

Psh, I like the egg head look! And your sweet sweater.
Good luck to your hubs on the GMAT! I'm sure you can't wait to have him back...it's totally unfair how studying can steal a person away.

Happy hump day! :)

A FANCY DAY said...

Haha I love the head band, showering is way over rated anyways. Good luck to Tyson I can't even imagine how tough it's been on everyone. Here's to a magical hump day.

alissa b said...

I'm so excited about your husband taking the GMAT. Finally done with that!

loandco said...

GAH. i love that sweater!!
p.s. it is hilarious when elderly people say "hump day". just sayin', if you want to laugh...

Melanie Marie said...

The red with the white jeans looks really great. Warm and cozy but still spring appropriate.

I need to get a pair of white pants! I'm especially loving them with pastel tops and neon accessories this spring and summer!

Love this poncho! Great rainy day look :)

Betsy said...

Ok. It's official. You have THE best style. If I could choose anyone's wardrobe to acquire (since this happens oh-so-often and one should always be ready with an answer in case the opportunity presents itself...ha) I'd choose yours! Hands down. Keep doin what you're doin! Your blog is loved. <3

Eat Live Love said...

This is adorable!

Phoebe said...

Tell Tyson good luck on the GMAT! I take it next Saturday, and I've probably been freaking out/studying for the past two months.

Anna said...

Ashton said...

Beautiful red sweater!

Simply. Splendid. Living. said...

I love that it's different, I could never stick to just one "look"...variety is the spice of life right. -- That's why I SO enjoy your sense of style because you have lots of fun and don't take yourself too seriously and you wear all sorts of looks amazingly well, my inspiration! : )

Mrs. Baker said...

Mallory said...

I hope Tyson does well on the GMAT! I just scheduled mine and although it's still a few months away I'm already worrying about it.
ps even with the egg head you still look very cute.

Tara T. R. said...

Hi Sydney! You are so, so awesome and your blog is my favorite! I have a question for you...I'm also young and married (no babies yet...but your posts on how fabulous Everett is give me major baby fever!), and I wanted to ask how you're feeling about the whole wife/mother/career lady balance these days. Is it how you expected? Is it difficult? I've been thinking about this stuff a lot as I think about when my hubbs and I should start a family. Let me know what it's like on the other side!
P.S.: I originally found you through browsing Refinery29, and now I'm their new beauty intern :) crazy huh?

I like your headband! Even if it was from your bathroom and you wore it because your hair was dirty. It looks great.

Showers are overrated anyway. And I have an egg head too. It's a pretty cool club to be in :)

love the boots! Wish I woulda had them in our rainstorm yesterday :)

Mary-Alice said...

Lol! Oh, the headband. The horrible, horrible headband. The way your hair fell in the 2nd picture made it look like you were wearing a rugby helmet! Hilarious, but I'm sure comfortable, right?

Enjoy your day with your little cutie.

I love your blog!! I am also talking my GMAT on Saturday so I fully understand what he is going thought, it is hard to prep! And it seems like I've forgotten all the math I learned back in High school-- that would really come in handy this weekend! Good luck to him!

His Little Lady said...
