on what I wore...

PhotobucketWhat I wore.
Gap shirt (an oldie but a goodie)
Gap jeans (I've worn them a few times too many, so they're a wee bit saggy-baggy)
Candie's shoes

I made the effort to curl my hair this morning, but I think we all know this humidity is too much for it to handle, so up it went into my now (unfortunately) signature messy-bun. I also put on a cute mustard-yellow belt and almost-heels, but I realized I was going to take them off right after taking a photo and decided to keep it real. (Real wrinkly, apparently. I swear I own an iron.) But this is one of my favorite shirts of all time and seems to lift my mood when I put it on. Perhaps it's the ruffles, perhaps it's the combination of gray shirt and coral polkadots, perhaps it's the fact that it is softer than soft. Who knows? In any case, it was a tiny thing to brighten my day.

I was a mess this morning, mostly because Eisley has decided to transition from two daily naps to one, therefore making our mornings a little noisy. It's like she thinks she still needs an early nap, so she is a complete fuss-budget once 8:30 rolls around, but when I put her in her crib to sleep, she screams bloody murder because she isn't really tired.

This might actually be what kills me, people.

Here are a couple details:

Dogeared necklace.
I bought this necklace at Nordstrom Rack years and years ago. If I remember correctly, it was on sale for around $20, which is less than half of what it normally costs. I wasn't going to buy it even then, but my older sister talked me into it. I'm so glad I did, because I wear it all the time! So pretty and delicate. And, according to Dogeared, a symbol of spiritual and emotional freedom that should remind me to find my own wings and fly higher than ever before. So if I tend to get a little angsty with Jay while wearing it, I'm completely within my rights to say, "THIS IS MY EMOTIONAL FREEDOM NECKLACE AND I AM FINDING MY WINGS."

Or something like that.

Good eyelash day. It's a thing.
And while my hair may not be looking its best, thankfully I am having a good eyelash day. It's a thing.

  1. You're adorable. And that necklace fits you :) So I was totally going to participate, but twenty photos later I decided a decent photo wasn't in my future and gave up. That's my story.

  2. Cute cute cute. I want to participate but I'm wearing a striped sweatshirt and hot pink shorts. Perhaps I will do it anyway, in the name of keeping it real and being conflicted about the seasons and whatnot. Is it summer? Is it fall? WHO KNOWS.

    1. SERIOUSLY. I totally get it. I haven't had a good hair day that has lasted longer than an hour, thanks to the ridiculous heat. I'm so ready for slouchy hat weather! Come on, September!

  4. We are necklace twins! Brett bought that for me three years ago when I landed my "dream job" which turned out to NOT be a dream job. It's the fearless necklace ;)

  6. Good eyelash days are totally a thing. Honestly, I consider whether or not I'm having a good eyelash day far more often than I consider if I'm having a good hair day. Some days they just don't cooperate, others they look stellar. Good eyelash days just make you feel like a million bucks, am I right?

    1. Hahaha...you are totally right, my dear! I'm pretty sure if I mentioned having a good eyelash day to my husband, he'd think I was losing my ever-loving mind. But at least us ladies understand it.

      :)
