sweater ~ old, maybe JCP?
pants ~ Marshalls
booties ~ F21
earrings ~ from nora (stolen from our garage sale)
every once in a while, nora and i will email each other back and forth and say something like, "will you look at my blog pictures on flickr and make sure i don't look like a *insert bad word here*?" of course, we always email each other back and say, "you look great!" and it's not that i ever lie...nora seriously always looks great. and i've seen her first thing in the morning, after two bottles of wine (shared between the two of us, of course).
these pictures were one of those instances. i emailed nora and said, "will you check my pics? it's first thing in the morning, i haven't washed my hair in four days, it's dark outside, and i am wearing my most boring of work outfits." and then i said, "maybe i should write a blog post about how it's not always glamorous being a bird."* so i am. i know, i know, the life of a bird seems so chic, doesn't it? i mean, our lives are full of dirty houses, hungry kids, stinky feet (henry's not mine), law & order reruns, popcorn in bed, and let's not forget leggings. there are leggings almost every day. i imagine that this life is fairly similar to jennifer lopez or kate middleton's. no? but you know, we just want you to know that like everyone else, we put our
pants leggings on one leg at a time*.
so here i am, an hour out of bed, in the cold and in the dark, tired eyes and unwashed hair...in my most boring of work outfits. this is me**.
* i hope you know i'm kidding.
** actually, the real me wouldn't have pants on. i would be laying in bed in a tank and no bra, eating popcorn and watching reruns of law & order.
