wear: hot messy-ish.

today the girls and i went down to east village to have a quick lunch with joey and walk around a little bit. it was another beautiful, january day (saywhaaa?!) and it was so nice to be outside.
we ate at lucca, did some browsing at domestica and got coffee at the village bean. joey had to be back at work so we brought him some juice and when we walked into the salon, the place was packed! i was maneuvering the stroller and saying hi to all our friends in there when a sweet reader named tonya, came up and said hello! we had actually met before (i can't remember where! refresh my memory, tonya?) and i knew she was familiar to me but it took me by surprise and i'm pretty sure i rambled her ear off like an idiot. 
(and this is why i'm a better blogger than talker--editing!) 
after we left the salon and walked back to the car, i about died when i caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror--hair all wild, mascara all over my eyes, i was a mess. i'm just thankful i was actually wearing clothes. i had honestly considered breaking all my own rules and going down there in a sweatshirt and yoga pants. some style blogger i am! anyway, if you know tonya, she'll probably tell you she saw me lookin' all disheveled and that my blog is a total sham. ha. it really was so nice to see you again, tonya; you let me know when you want to plan outfits for that conference! 
flannel: j.crew/crewcuts
t-shirt: f21
jeans: paige
boots: steve madden
socks: stolen from my dad
necklace: stella & dot


  1. That's exactly why you're a style blogger. You pull off disheveled REALLY well. :)

  2. I LOVE that you stopped in today and were SO sweet :) Love you!

  3. In love with that flannel top! Such a great casual outfit. It's funny -- on my way to Americana, I saw an old man running in leggings and a coat of the same pattern. Fashion to function.

  4. I am completely and madly in love with those Steve Madden boots!

    You look great!

  5. This is a really funny account of our re-meeting. (Met at an Upwards soccer practice close to your house, you were chatting with Meredith.) Pretty sure I did all the talking. I reference your blog so often that my friends knew exactly who you are--but one said she first thought you were a model. So apparently our definitions of "sham" and "disheveled" are considerably different.

  6. I like the outfit. I bet Tonya did too!

  7. I'll just say you make "hot messy-ish" look good. Haha love the outfit!
