Vomit green + ink-stain blue

Really, I'm just terribly cranky today. Luckily Rich came over to cheer me up. I hardly ever let him take my pictures, but today I needed a break and he did it for me. I made him an after-work snack and we flirted while we ate doughnuts and pretzels and I whined like the giant brat that I am. Then I felt better for awhile until I noticed how many people simply title their blog posts after the colors they are wearing. It's cool once in awhile, but a little variety isn't hard. There are song lyrics, poetry, movie+book quotes and I could go on and on. So in honor of all the whimsy and false up-beatness and the bland titles of the blog world I give you my outfit: vomit green and ink stain blue. Or electric green and navy, whatever you prefer.
I'm sticking my tongue out at people staring at me and my bf. My skirt was uncomfortable and wrinkled by the end of the day and I promptly changed into cozy PJ's after this little photo shoot. That is the truth about my day with no false cheeriness or falling back on talking about the damn weather.
Tomorrow will be better. Seriously. That is also the truth.

  4. HA! Vomit green and ink stain blue are definitely creative and unique color/blog titles. :) And you look adorable. Love the bright green skirt with the tee and cardigan. Great boots too.

    I was cranky as hell today as well. It's Monday, so that's okay, right?

  7. Sorry you had a bad day =( But doughnuts and whining and pretzels? That sounds like a good time haha. Also, I was really drawn to this sexy title. I love the vomit green color so much. It's so 70s. I love your nails and boots. And you look amazingly pretty in these photos. Especially with the wind all dramatically blowing in your hair. =) Cheer uppppp.

  8. Love the vomit green skirt so bright and fun and I have to say I have never vomited this colour, Thank God heehehe.

  9. I'm trying to imagine how I'd feel if my vomit was actually that colour... and also understand how even on a self-described bad day you manage to look so pretty and pulled together. Anyway, blue and green together is a combination I love, despite my grandmother's saying they should only be seen inside the washing machine.

    P.S. About the Egyptians. Seriously... I knew my mood was just about the fact that I was trapped with a pile of rocks. I snappily ruled out the ancient greeks...

  21. Ew please don't compare that green to vomit, it makes me imagine vomit that color and that is like the grossest. I am very sad that you had such a lame Monday. Mondays are the worst!! You look really cute though & I think your nails are so cheery and cotton candy-ish. I really need to stop my disgusting nail-biting habit so I can have lovely nails like you!

    PS Daffodils?! Why does NY have daffodils so much earlier than us?! Boo. I want to see flowers.

    I've been grumpy today too. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the freckles are on my face, and yet I'm sad. Somedays we just can't get it right.

    You look lovely x always
