Hello kitchen

Button Up: JCPenny, Sweater Vest: Belk, Jeggings: Wal-Mart, Belt: F21, Boots: Madden Girl, Socks: Target

I woke up this morning and I haven't the slightest clue where last night went because I definitely didn't spend six and 1/2 hours sleeping. And it was raining. Criminal to get out of a warm bed when it's raining. And then I realized how cold it was outside. Which made me really want to fly back to the warmness of my soft, cozy bed and my snuggly blankie. But I had an exam this morning at 8:00 am. {Who does that?} So I did the next best thing. I pulled on two pairs of wool socks and my warmest boots and coat and left the comfort of my bed behind. On second thought, the boots are probably not the next best thing. Sorry boots. I didn't even realize the jean on jean when I left the house. That just tells you how much of a dare devil I am. Living on the edge I tell you. Risky.

On another {random} note, don't you just hate it when you put off using the bathroom to the very last minute and you really, really have to go {Which for me is like every 30 minutes. I swear, I have the bladder of a squirrel.} and you walk in and there is this incredible line. And it's winter, so naturally, everyone takes three times longer to use the loo because there is the whole business of taking of their coat and blowing their nose and putting the coat back on and gathering their things in all of their cumbersome largeness because of said coat. And you are standing there dancing around with your legs crossed humming to yourself while the rest of the line stands there throwing you strange glances. Yeah, me too.


P.S.: I totally cracked my laptop screen today. And then I needed brownies so I whipped up a batch and dropped them all over the bottom of the oven. I guess that's fate's way of telling me I'm one brownie away from fat camp. And it was dark guys, so please excuse the lovely flash photography and my kitchen as a backdrop.
P.S. Again: if you guys have any advice on ordering a new screen, please do tell!

silvergirl said...

super sense of style

MJ said...

I love the outfit!! The vest is adorable :)

Rissy said...

I was just going to ask you why/how you are so teensy... I guess brownies are the secret ; )

Your blog is one of the reasons I love blogs so much because I never would have thought a sweater vest could be so cute!

Cassandra said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I LOVE that sweater vest! It's adorable.

Sorry to hear about the 8 AM exam, though. I had an exam today as well but thankfully it wasn't until 10 AM. However, after only 5 hours of sleep, even that felt early.

Katie said...

Love the socks peeking out from the boots!

Teresa: Life & Style said...

I really like the double denim look you have put together.

Hayley said...

LOVE the sweater vest.

Mommyblogger said...

I'm normally not a fan of vests but I really love this look on you! Sorry about your laptop & your brownies. That makes for a bad day :(

AmyW said...

I know nothing about computer screens, or technology in general really, but I do know that I LOVE your vest and that I tagged you as a Stylish and Versatile blogger! Check out my newest post for the rules on what you do next!

Lauren said...

adorable outfit! especially for such a quick put together!
& the kitchen pictures are cute!

The Pretty Life Anonymous said...

You are not even close to fat-camp!! Give me a break!

Savannah said...

Oh, I'm so sorry about your day of mishaps. 8am tests on their own are bad enough. I dropped a cake as I was putting it in the oven once....I started crying. :)

Makay said...

Awww I am sorry about your screen! :( Yikes... I don't know how to fix it, but I am sorry!

And I love love love love love your outfit! And hair! CUTE! Def my inspiration for tomorrow! :)

Love, Ky

Linden said...

I really like the colors of the vest! The boots/vest/ponytail combination is very equestrian - I love it!

Gaby said...

Oh no! That sucks about your brownies and your screen. Boo. But you look cute!

Tamara Nicole said...

Awww sorry to hear about your brownies, boooo!

Brittney said...

cracked laptop screen is a bummer, but dropped brownie batter is an absolute travesty. sooo sorry! and, yeah, 8 a.m. exams should be outlawed. if it's any consolation...you look AWESOME. that sweater vest thing? yeah. i love that. LOVE it.

Emily said...

OH that stinks. :( I am sorry about the screen. And depending on the laptop, you're better off just buying a completely new laptop. My mom's screen went bad and we just bought a whole new laptop because it was basically cheaper.
It probably isn't what you wanted to hear. :(

CessOviedo said...

Oopsie! So sorry for your screen, unfortunately I have zero idea of a good one, I always get help from guys at best buy, they know better! ... Fat camp? no uh! You are so pretty and fit, don't worry about it!

Melissa: Write it in Lipstick said...

I like the kitchen pictures, You bake so it only makes sense to have you in your zone.

Francesca said...

OMG. How did you crack your screen? I also wait until the last minute to go to the bathroom. Haha

hurricanekerrie said...

I totally love your poses! You make even indoor photos look cool. This didn't look like a quick outfit. It actually looks very together! Great vest...

When my cousin cracked her screen, the repair cost was too much, she was better off buying a new one. But at the time, she was saving up for something big so she did the next best thing--she bought a monitor and hooked her laptop up. Instant desktop. Hey, she needed the contents of her laptop... Prolly not that helpful haha!

Modest Fashion Sense said...

Um, I need that sweater vest...seriously!

Saidah said...

Omg, I cracked my laptop once. SUCKED. The easiest thing to do would be to order the EXACT screen off of ebay or the cheapest place you can find it and then have a local computer repair guy put it in for you (you might even be able to get a tech kid at your school to do it; its pretty easy). It cost WAY more to send it to a repair company and let them buy the part. And unless you have a good warranty, the manufacturer might not even replace it.

All that to say... cute vest! lol.

(S) said...

I second what the first commenter said: You look absolutely, downright adorable. It probably helps that you are friggin cute to start with. Good luck through the rest of the 30!

kileen said...

i love the jean on jean look and the vest really adds a colorful twist to the look. and these kitchen pictures are still so lovely!

and i'm sorry to hear about your laptop screen. best of luck fixing it!

cute and little

Gentri said...

First- Fat Camp?? hahaha! Pretty sure one brownie isn't going to put you there. Especially since you are TINY!

Second- I'm having some SERIOUS vest envy.

and Third- Denim on Denim is totally in! It's ok as long as it doesn't match. So great pick! Especially the way you've paired it with the vest to break it up. Perfect. :)

Amy Z. said...

I LOVE this outfit! Definitely my favorite one yet!

Leah said...

I hope your day turned out better than it sounds! Love that sweater vest and the denim on denim! You look great despite the 8am exam.

Happy weekend.

Jen HaHA said...

I think it just means the oven was craving brownie batter. Maybe phatcamp. (No I di'int) Such a great sweater vest! I look forward to seeing how you style it next.
Check out my 30! Jen Hemming and Hawing Again

Lindsay Jean said...

Sweater vest=ADORABLE! It sounds like it was one of "those" days, but if it helps, you looked great!

Eclectic Flair said...

Oh no, hope you get your screen replaced! Wish I knew how to fix it but I'm the least tech-iest person in the blogging world!

Miyan said...

I couldn't even tell it was jean on jean, it goes really well and i love the green vest! and i totally hate how long it takes people (including me) to go to the bathroom in the wintertime due to uncomfortableness, etc...

stay warm!

Oh wow, sometimes it hits you in waves! Poor you.

I do have to say that you still look quite adorable and I would love to get my hands on this slipover!

Maybe I can brighten your day a bit: I would like to award you with the Stylish Blogger Award!!

kelly anne said...

Fashionography. said...

Getting out of bed when it's raining is the hardest thing ever, I agree! I love your vest, too, I think it really works with the denim on denim.

♥ just a girl ♥ said...

You are so photogenic! This makes me want to be in a ski lodge somewhere even though I hate snow! Love the bright colours ;)

Julia said...

THanks for stopping by my blog! Girl, you are rockin' the jean on jean and I'm liking it!

I think I may have been seriously upset if my brownies splattered in the oven. :(

kelseywilliams said...

can i please have everything in your closet??? you are always so adorable, lady.

Holly said...

I love your jeans and boots!

Sorry you cracked your laptop screen. :( I don't have any advice for you, but I hope some else can help. :)

Distilled Daley said...

Great vest (probably the millionth time today)! PS - how do I increase the blue in my eyes?

Jess said...

Very cute outfit. Your sweater vest is adorable. Ah! I hate waiting on public bathrooms when you really have to go. It is torture!

Amy and Troy said...

Ever since you made a comment on my blog I have been a follower. I really enjoy your humor, outfits, and how you genuinely seem like a nice person. I really like your blog layout. I've seen it on quite a few blogs. Can you tell me where you found it or what it's called? Thanks!

Alaina said...

I LOVE that vest. It's seriously one of the most adorable things I've ever seen, aha.

ANd I wish I could help you with your laptop screen :( That realllly sucks. I hope everything works out very soon!

Tiffany said...

I love the way you styled that vest, and those boots are gorgeous- this whole outfit looks cozy and chic! For indoor photography with flash, these pictures look awesome.

Catherine said...

WOW! amazing <3

Melissa said...

You are hardly anywhere near fat camp! But I do want some brownies right now.

If you're going to do double denim, THIS is the way to do it. I love the socks with the boots and that vest is fantastic!

Sometimes I think I don't even HAVE a bladder, I have to go so often. It's stupid, really. Being this way normally and then when I was pregnant? Oh, forget it!

Meg said...
