I totally dug the color combination (which again…I NEVER would have thought of on my own), and I knew immediately how I was going to steal this look with things I already had in my closet!
I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to totally high five myself after putting this one together.
Lace cami: LOFT (This cami is about 10 years old.)
Navy cardigan: LOFT
Mint Green Necklace and earrings: J Crew Factory Outlet
Mustard Skinny Jeans: Nordstrom
Flats: Old Navy
Yes….a high five is totally in order.
But you know what’s sad? You know there are days that you just feel cuter than others? Well, I felt pretty darn cute in this outfit; however, I didn’t see anybody that appreciated my cuteness. Ha!
Isn’t that always how it goes?
I’m going to have to wear this again soon.
And if you see me, do me a solid, and please tell me that I look cute.
Oh my goodness…..speaking of CUTE…..or not.
Check. me. out.
Yep, I asked my mom to dig through the photo albums to find this picture, and she came through for me. Thanks mom!
You probably need a minute to let the pure awesomeness sink in.
Take your time.
Me and Kelly Ford (I remembered her last name!) in the 5th grade talent show….
showing everybody who was boss in our coordinating UNITS ensembles.
(Please see this post if you aren’t familiar with UNITS.)
Kelly’s bangs were impressive, don’t ya think?
However, I must say, they weren’t nearly as awesome as Chasity’s. All the 5th grade girls had total bang envy for Chasity. Her bangs were literally at least 3 inches tall. They stuck straight up, and then they curled down at the highest point. I don’t even know how she did it, but I am pretty sure that Chasity and her Aussie spray are at least partly responsible for the whole in the ozone layer.
As you can see, 5th grade was probably the pinnacle of my awkward years, largely due to a piece of orthodontic torture equipment known as the herbst device. It was basically a clear football mouthpiece that I had to wear all the time (which was super attractive, obviously). Still, if truth be told, the herbst device wasn’t even the worst of it. How could it get worse you ask? Well, that’s easy.
With overnight headgear.
A chin cup to be exact.
Slumber parties are SUPER fun when you have to strap a molded plastic cup on your chin (think curved soap dish) before crawling into bed.
It did its job, and my bite was fully corrected (which I am of course thankful for), but it rubbed a tiny bald spot on the top of my head during the late years of elementary school.
Nobody could see it, but I can assure you, it was tragic. 🙂
Don’t worry, the hair has since grown back.
