. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Confessions

October 3, 2012

Confessions


 
shirt: AE (high school old)  skirt: old navy  scarf: gap

I confess this is my first attempt at pattern mixing and I feel like I pretty much failed.
I kind of feel like a homeless person in this outfit.  Not sure if it's the extreme tired Monday face or what. 

(I confess that I'm pretty sure this was actually a Thursday.)

I wasn't even going to post this outfit but it is crucial to the next part of my post.  

I confess the day I wore this outfit to school I wore my shirt backwards.

Thankfully it was only 9:00 when one of my students told me there was a pocket on the back of my shirt and that I must have my shirt on backwards. 
and thankfully they are only 8 year olds that saw.  Still embarrassing.  8 year olds can be brutal.

I confess that my bedroom used to be decked out in everything Mickey Mouse. 
Wallpaper, bedspread, figurines, pillow, even my pajamas. 


As a matter of a fact this was my Christmas loot one year. 
Maybe I was a little too obsessive.  

I confess that I that I've pretty much failed another year in a row at growing a successful garden.
This year I produced one pepper.


It better taste delicious. 




Congratulations to Sarah C. who won the September giveaway!  An email has been sent your way!

I hope you're joking saying you look like a homeless person...you are adorable with your pattern mixing.

8 year olds can be brutal...but it's good that they told you....teenagers would notice but joke on you all day...right?! hah!

You always look styled and put together. Love the mix. Nice work on dressing yourself!! ;)

So funny! Nothing like realizing your clothes are on wrong. Or having someone else notice for you. My son is 8 and he would have told me but I would never hear the end of it!

I seriously just laughed out loud. Thank you. Thank you.

CC said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I don't think you failed at all - I love the printed scarf with the striped top and that skirt is one of my faves. :)

Denise said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

To me, you are styling, as always.

the most pattern mixing I do is a patterned shirt and a scarf, so you got ne there. You look beautiful! Would it be okay if I said I laughed put loud about the shirt comment/mickey mouse obsession? I'm not that mean, I promise! My little brother wore his pants backwards twice last week. and no one told.him until I noticed after school. His friends must reeeeeeeally like his personality!
I confess that I haven't posted on the blog in two weeks and I should be doing my chem homework, and that I haven't studied for tomorrows math test, and I have 50 pages left to annotate. I'm right there with you, Katie! Life is crazy sometimes, but there is always an upside (ahem HOMECOMING WEEK?!)
I haven't talked to you in waaaay too long!

I think the pattern mixing looks great! Love that you are wearing a shirt from high school!!

Janna Renee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I totally still have AE stuff from high school. I lived in a small town, so it was as fancy as it got and I still treasure them!

You definitely do NOT look anything like a homeless person! I've worn shirts backwards before too. I guess that's what happens when you get dressed in the dark and you're half asleep :)

No way!!! You did not fail with the mixing...you are taking baby steps and you rocked it! :) Stripes and dots are the perfect beginning! ;) And girl, you don't know how many times I have worn my shirt backwards! LOL! And I think your email is blocked from my computer! :( I can't find your first email anywhere???? So, weird!

Jen said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

My garden was a total flop this year, too. I blame it on being the first year at this house and the stupid drought. Still, it makes me mad.

Erin Rethemeyer said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Girl! I think the mixed print looks great! But I understand what you are saying, I am no good at mixing either.
And you with Mickey Mouse - me it was Holly Hobby and New Kids.
Ugh....awkward.

Laura said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Definitely not a failed outfit and definitely not a homeless person. I really love the patterned scarf with the stripes! I Don't think I've really tried pattern mixing yet either... you've inspired me to try.

What about mixing a Mickey Mouse print shirt with a Donald Duck scarf? I'm sure you would feel super confident in that!

his little lady said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ha, I love that you wore your skirt backwards to school. That's something that would happen to me. You are too funny, girl!

Gina said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha you're hilarious! You definitely don't look like a homeless person in that outfit even if you felt like one. Good job on the pepper :)

Lauren said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Aw, I think you look cute..the scarf is adorable!

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Well that is one stylish homeless person then cause I think you look fine! I had to giggle about the backwards t-shirt.....man have we all had those embarassing moments in life. My husband went to work on his first week of his new job with one of those size stickers down the leg of his new pants ALL day! No one told him and then he gets home and I see it and laughed probably the whole night about it.

Amanda Raborn said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

LOVE this! Too funny! And I realllllly love that blue skirt!
