In My White Tee

Sweater: Charolette Russe, Shirt: Polo Ralph Lauren Sport, Jeans: Hollister, Shoes: Thrifted, Socks: Gift, Scarf: Old Navy, Headband: F21, Watch: Shoe Station, Belt: Thrifted

Ok, so Brittany over at Population 250 asked me to style up a white tee for you guys and the whole 30 for 30 biz starts tomorrow (yes, tomorrow...yikes!). So here is how I did it on my last day of wardrobe freedom. You guys fake it and be impressed. I babysat for two adorable (and active) little nuggets all day. Comfort was at the top of my priority list.


I also got tagged by Emmy of Em's Fashion Finds to tell 15 interesting things about myself. I suppose this will show you that I am only interesting in the "weird" sense of the word.

1. I am a criminology and political science major who is interested in fashion. Try that one on for size. Trust me, it's really hard to explain to people. It's also odd to walk into a class of 150 and be the only one in heels.
2. I eat absolutely everything possible out of a coffee cup. I know I've mentioned it before...but I suppose it bears saying twice. If it can be placed in a mug, it will. I don't know why, it's just a freakish obsession my twisted little mind jumped on like white on rice.
3. I treated myself to that silver nail polish you see in the above photos today. And I'm kinda psyched about it. It's Sally Hanson-Tying the Knot. It doesn't really make me think of tying the knot. But I love it. I bite. We'll see how long this lasts.
4. The minis I babysit call me RaeRae. It's pretty much my favorite nickname ever. (Even if we don't consider the fact that it's up against Rambi and Squirrel Butt.)
5. I'm also quite psyched about the new watch you see above. I'm in mad love with the color mustard and I think it's the first mustard item I've actually owned.
6. I'm pretty much the cheapest person ever. I was a big spender this weekend and dropped $26 at Goodwill. Big bucks.
7. (not really me, but) Dusty doesn't really understand the thrift store thing. He's more of a "ya need it you buy it" sort of a guy. He doesn't understand the thrill of the hunt. I feel so primative saying that.
8. I recently discovered my love for red lipstick. I don't know what took me so long. Dusty also loves it. But he says it makes me harder to kiss. He kisses anyway. I think he looks good in red too. My next ($5) splurge will be on some Revlon moisturizing red.
9. I have this really hott guy who loves me a lot. And I love him too. But I think you guys know that one.
10. (I had to phone a friend for the rest of these. Aparently Dusty knows me better than me. Scary.) I like to cook. I think that's why Dusty fell for me. My cousin and I "cooked" dinner for D and her boyfriend when we were first getting to know each other and it bombed. So I redeemed myself with Chicken Cacciatorre and he's loved me ever since. Or so I'd like to think.
11. I like breakfast food at dinner. But not at breakfast. Unless it is a late breakfast. Like almost a brunch. And then it better be a Jethro (google it). Yes, I am a condition person. Like Meg Ryan in "When Harry Met Sally." It gets annoying. But at least I have a few people who are able to put up with me.
12. Another one that bears saying twice. I love LOVE burgers an fries. I order this meal every time we go out and I crave it every meal in between. I'm a very cultured girl.
13. I straighten. Pictures, pillows, pretty much anything that I can straighten, I straighten. Now if I could only extend that habbit to straightening my room and hanging my clothes back up after throwing reject outfits on the floor every morning. I just broke a record for how many times you can use the word straighten in two sentences. Guinness, where are you?
14. I like falling to sleep watching football. Nothing against the sport, it's just that the sound of the crowd turned down low resembles the gentle roar of waves crashing on the shore. Just to be clear, I've only done this in a stadium once.
Kidding.
15. One of my guilty pleasures is waking up early when I don't have to just so I can spend the morning by myself drinking coffee. And whatever else happens to come along. It's a one with nature feeling to be the first one awake. Ok, 10:30 is past my bedtime, I'm starting to wax philosophical on you guys.
Love,
Ramsey

I love #15- so true! I thought at first your watch was from The Best of Everything (not sure where you live in FLA, I know there are some in the Naples/Cape Coral area), but I see it's not. So cute nonetheless. Love your outfit! I like seeing how bloggers style casual things :)

Jen Andres said...

totally do the same thing with the waking up early to sit and drink coffee... my boyfriend gets so mad at me when my alarm goes off at 8am on a "sleep in day" just so i can get up and have my coffee and find random things to do! :) i tell him that i need to get up and have coffee so i dont get a headache. haha. shhh!

Lindsay Jean said...

I eat out of coffee mugs too, and Zach thinks it's so weird! Ice cream, cereal, anything. And I love getting up early when I don't have to. The actual waking up part is hard, but when I'm just sitting drinking coffee, it's heaven.

Ashley J said...

Love how you added all the extra color to the plain white tee. Your hair looks so cute with like that and I recently got back into the whole red lips thing. I tweeted the other day which color looks best of dark haired girls and many people told me to try Red Delicious by Bare Escentuals...FYI:)

Lexie said...

Just found your blog via Elle (Joy, Etc.) and I am so glad I did!
I'm doing 30for30 too, and I am in serious need of some moral support. Can't wait to see what outfits you create!

Emmy said...

Great post! I am in love with the color mustard as well...I got a mustard work bag for Christmas from the boy and I use it almost everyday!

Katri said...

Cute list! I need some mustard yellow in my life...and now that I think about it falling asleep to football is really relaxing!

Elle said...

CessOviedo said...

Nothing like a cup coffee to wake up, I agree with Dusty red lisp do look great on you! Loved you had to phone him, I had zero idea you were criminology major, that sounds so CSI I love it!

I also have a new found love of red lipstick! What do you use? I just bought the Revlon lip stain (can't think of what it's called currently, but it looks like a lil marker) and I like it, but could do with something better.

Colleen said...

I like what you did with the white tee. It looks all fancy and not just like a white tee. The scarf was a good choice.

I'm excited for the 30 for 30.

Francesca said...

You look adorable with your hair up and with that headband on!
I also love getting up early. Mostly just to enjoy the quietness for a little bit :)

Feathers said...

I love your headband, it makes your simple outfit still look fancypants. Aren't nicknames from little kids the best? My friend's daughter could not say my name forever, so she called me "Dessie." Her nickname for my mom is the best, though, she and her little brother call her Kaki (pronounced like khaki, my mom's name is Kathy).

I love learning about new people and especially love quirky things like yours about loving anything in a coffee mug. That's what make people so unique!
