I went out to the forest and caught 100,000 fireflies

This is my most basic outfit and a perfect example of what I look like when I throw something together at 5:30 in the morning and run out the door. A tee shirt, high waisted skirt, cardigan and very few accessories. Happens at least a few times a week. I'm really exhausted but I promise once I'm out of work tomorrow (early office closing!) blogging will go back to...well...whatever is passing for normal these days at Happy, Honey & Lark. Including the last 2 items of the swap, some killer vintage and all the festivities coming up in the next few days.
The post title comes from one of my favorite Magnetic Fields songs from college. The Thanksgiving holiday always makes me think of college for some reason.
anthropologie tee (gift), AA skirt, Hue tights, BP sweater, H&M shoes

  2. I wish I could look this fantastic at 5:30 in the morning! If I don't plan an outfit ahead of time I look like a frumptastic mess. I LOVE the colors in your blouse, and how they perfectly complement your skirt. Also, that dress hanging in your closet in the last photo?! You should wear it on your blog so I can be super jealous of how awesome it looks on you! (is that a creepy thing to say? oh well)

  7. I usually pick stuff out at night, but lately I'm too tired.  ALSO the dress hanging there is this one http://happyhoneylark.blogspot.com/2011/10/ill-take-thee-away-into-land-of.html. I might wear it for Thanksgiving, but I'm thinking I want to shorten it (its super see through and it will be waaaay more comfortable if its shorter). Haha its not creepy bc I know you IRL...if I didn't I would totes spam your comment ;) juuussst kidding.
    Excited for the holiday?
    PS--I plan to lurk on your blog quite a bit

  9. That's when people do that (dress in a run at 5am) and still look great that you know that they're awesome, so yeah, you're awesome!
    I also think your quite a regular blogger, so no need to apologize for anything, I know I'll have always something great to read from you on my google reader several times a week!!

  12. I'd love to zoom onto your bookshelf to see your books! I can only spot the Twillight books! :)

    This is a great "just thrown together" outfit, I wish more people put this much creativity into their early morning outfits.

  18. My bookshelf is mainly books I've read more than once and a few old text books. Lots of Austen, fairy tales, Harry Potter etc. LOTS of fantasy novels! I can take a better picture for you sometime :)

  20. Definitely, I'm so interested in people's bookshelves! When you find you're sharing some favourites, it's a bit like when it turns out you have friends in common. :)

    I'm a huge re-reader, every book I like, I reread at least once... Like when you want to meet an old friend again. :)
