Well, I broke my un-official shopping hiatus by purchasing this amazing ice cream cone sweater. Practicality my as well be my middle name. Why hold out and save my money for classic pieces when I can have ice cream sweaters?!

In all seriousness, I had been stalking this darn thing on Nordstrom all summer. Any time I am stalking an item, I keep it pinned on my ‘wishlist‘ Pinterest board and check back periodically. My dreams were finally made true about two weeks ago when this dorky sweater finally went on sale! Unfortunately, I am about to crush all of your dreams because I just realized that it’s already sold out…

Can we still be friends though?

Blogger Blooper Reel Linkup

The Blogger Blooper Reel Linkup is finally here! Hop on over to Fran’s blog to participate in the linkup!

I hope you all enjoy these crazy, silly, un-edited blooper photos! I think today is a day that we should all just take some time to relax and poke fun at ourselves. As a blogger, I know how easy it can be to get caught up in comparing yourself to successful bloggers who appear to have picture perfect lives. I will never be one of those glamorous, uber-chic and flawless bloggers. I am just a regular person like anyone else who happens to take pictures of my outfits. You guys typically only get to see my prettiest, most perfectly posed outfit photos, but today you get to see how many bad ones I have to take in order to get to the good ones!

When I said it was windy in San Francisco, this is what I meant! Sadly, the majority of our pictures from that trip look like this.

I like to do dorky poses during a shoot in order to loosen up, and I always end up looking SO stupid!

WTH is this pose?! Like, really? I have no clue what is happening here.

I swear I’m not drunk in this picture even though it was a holiday and all…

This is George’s hand and I have no idea why it’s there. Can’t you see me judging it?

I’d say that the wind is to blame for about 90% of my ridiculous blooper pictures. So annoying!

Excuse me while I check to make sure that my belly button is still there.

Let me just say that I get photo bombed by this adorable little guy all. the. time.

This my classic ‘I’m mad at something George said’ face.

Go home! You’re drunk!

I had a total Marilyn Monroe moment in this outfit, but not nearly as glamorous and 1000% embarrassing.

Is it just me or do I look pissed? Yes?

I honestly have no recollection of what is happening here or why my arm is awkwardly thrown in the air.

Umm…what?

I hope you enjoyed this post! Hopefully you were laughing with me and not at me! Don’t forget to head over to Fran’s blog to participate in the linkup or just go see everyone else’s embarrassing photos!

I don’t have much to say today except that it’s still hot and muggy in Houston and I am totally over it. I’m “faking fall” by wearing my fall-colored clothes, shoes, and accessories and wishing for nicer weather. Here’s hoping!

Practically Pajamas

My Old Navy practically pajama pants have made their blog return! I typically only wear these pants as “road trip pants” (as seen here or here), but I’ve discovered a new use for them…sick pants! I have been sick with a cold for over a week now, and these pants have been getting a lot of use. They are the perfect “I want to be comfortable but not look like a slob pant.” When paired with a cute top and cardigan, I pretty much looked like a decent human being. I’d also like to let you guys know that I only put on makeup for the sake of taking blog pictures. That’s how much I love you!

Luckily, as of today, I am feeling about 95% better. Thank you for all your well wishes this past week!
