Split minds

Every morning when I get dressed, I compose a blog post in my head that corresponds to the outfit I'm wearing. I think about talking points, like how I almost paired a different shirt or necklace with the outfit, or a funny story about an item I'm wearing.

But by the time I actually post the outfit, a few days to a week later, I've almost always forgotten what talking points I had thought up and inevitably wind up talking about something else. Like with this outfit, I'm sure I had intended to say something about how I'm not sure if this all-neutrals outfit is chic or if it just makes me look washed out. But all I want to talk about this morning is how Spazzy keeps staring at me and mewing, and how stinking cute she is.

button down: New York & Company
cami: Old Navy
capris: Target
shoes: Franco Sarto via Marshall's
necklace: Banana Republic

Sometimes I remember what talking points I had wanted to touch upon, and then it starts to compete with whatever's going on at the moment I'm writing, and the post winds up sounding like two different people wrote it. Which I'm sure is rather weird to read, particularly if you can't follow my train of thought. (But don't feel bad if you can't...few people can. Even Matt makes me stop for clarification at times, haha.)

Oh well. Spazzy is now asleep next to me on the couch, and there's more adorableness going on there, so I think I'm just going to forget about my split-personality blogging habits and bug her for a little bit :)


  1. Oh, I do this all the time. I start muttering to myself about fit and seasonal appropriateness, but then when I sit down to write, all I want to do is tell people about how delicious the chicken and waffles were that I had for dinner that night. I try to tell myself it's cute and quirky.

    Anyhow, for my two cents your outfit is quite chic! The pink keeps it cheerful, too.

  2. The pink looks really cute on you. I also am beginning to believe that neutral pumps were natures best kept leg elongating secret.

  3. The minute I saw these pictures...the first thing I noticed were your heels.. WOW.. love the color!! have been dying on getting one for ages!
    Like the necklace too :)
