inspiration monday: eep, oh boy!

the inspiration
michele trachtenberg and olivia munn
a coworker of mine sneezes like this (and i am not kidding...i wish i had a recording):
deep breath in and then,

"eek, ohhh boy!" 

it's like the oh boy is part of her sneeze cause she says it every time. super quiet sneeze, just a little eek noise, but then every time comes the oh boy. and i think it's cute. i don't even question the oh boy. in fact, i kind of love it.

so i started thinking about little messages that we could start incorporating into sneezes. maybe you can all vote and i will try one out next time i sneeze. but i'm not making any promises here.

leggings ~ Dots
shirt/ring ~ H&M
vest ~ Kohls
socks ~ Target
boots ~ Ebay
earrings ~ F21
bracelets/watch ~ F21, Dots, vintage, thrifted

"achoo. obama 2012."
"ah-cheew. marry me."
"eep. are you going to finish that?"
"achoo. can i borrow $10?"
"achew. you're a jerk"
"eep. nice ass."

and then, of course, you could blame it in the sneeze every time. "what? oh, no...don't mind me. i just sneezed."

jacket~ vintage, gift from Jim

two birds


  1. Love the outfits you have made from the inspiration photos! :)

  2. love the inspirations + your outfits. :) xx

  3. love Nora's jacket! I wish I'd got a gilet in my wardrobe...

  4. Haha, I totally need to start including messages with my sneezes!

    Love these looks.... both of your boots are amazing, I have been looking for a pair of sexy tall black boots! :) Have a great Monday.

  5. I am laughing at 830 on a Monday morning thank you. I love the Achew comments. Too funny. My sneeze is in the opera singer range and powerful. Probably startling to those around me. Anyway, Megan I loveeee your vest. Upon 1st glance thought it was vintage, it has such a great vintage appeal, very hip. Nora, your vintage jacket is an awesome color and the crop on it is great for layering over long. Both fabulous. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  6. That mustard jacket is so fun! I'm going to have to come up with something great to say with my sneezes.;)

  7. LOL, that is funny about the sneezes! My mom always sneezes three times. Always. To the point we have to ask "are you sure you're done?"

    Megan I really love your vest! And Nora I love your jacket! I think I like both your looks better than the inspiration itself!!

  8. You guys crack me up! I have a coworker who sneezes like this - ahhhCHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I feel like I need a hazmat suit after she sneezes!

  9. fun vest!

  10. you've both outfit wowed me again. cute sneeze sentiments. sneezes are another one of those things that shows how very individual we all are.

  11. I am in love with both of these. I love the stripes and the boots. :)

  12. Too funny! I personally like the version where you ask "are you going to finish that?" Mostly because I love to eat. You both look great - such a cute, casual outfit :)

  15. You guys make the leggings-into-boots look so fab. Really love it.

  16. Lol, I love that she does that, too cute! You both look great! Love the outfits!

  17. way to go jim, that is one amazing jacket!

  18. Hurrah for furry items!!! Love your coat Nora and your vest is great Megan!!!
    My sneeze is obnoxiously loud! I greet my class with a sneeze each day as the sun faces the entrance to the playground and I sneeze 3 times at them because of the sun! They greet me with bless you! I like your idea of adding some words!At the moment, I think my sneeze refrain should be AAAAEEHOOO "Ecoutez moi!!!!!!!!!"

  19. I like both the vest and the jacket. It has been so arm this winter that I haven't been able to do many fun outfits with jackets!

  20. My favorite is the bit of hot pink peeking out of the boot. Cute outfits lady birds:)

  21. you both look great! thank you for the lovely comment on my blog :) new follower here!! also, you both make me want bangs! yours are adorable!

  22. So cute, and I can't believe the vest is from Kohls!

  23. Haha, all your sneezes are cracking me up! The "nice ass" sneeze would turn a few heads no doubt! I love both of your takes--your the epitome of cute and cozy!

  24. love it!

  25. Love this! You both interpreted it in such individual ways but you can really see the inspiration in both. Beautiful.

  26. great looks!!

  27. very funny. I sneeze like that too... sometimes especially when I'm near carpets. Such fabulous looks...I like the fur coats and vest. Megan's monochrome outfit or nora's yellow coat one, they both look great, such adorable and cute looks.


  28. Mine would probably be "aaaaaahch-GET AWAY FROM ME!". My sneezes are known to be loud, messy and disgusting, so really it's just in everyone's best interest.


  29. Thank you for your comment on my blog, lovely blog will you like to follow each other

  30. I think you should go with "eep nice ass"- that cracked me up! I have a very loud, manly sneeze, I always wanted to be a dainty sneezer! Megan your fur is fab and Nora that jacket is adorable!

  31. i made it...barely! love the jacket and the cute fur vest, ladies!!!

  32. what a great concept :) I wish it was cold enough in Dubai to wear a fur coat..

    following you now :)

  33. You ladies have ridiculously awesome outerwear, you know?

    Also, my vote is for the 'nice ass' follow-up. Who doesn't love a great compliment with their sneeze?
