outfit of the day(bird): what men hear

dress ~ TJ Maxx
sweater ~ Heartbreaker
shoes, necklaces ~ thrifted

last week, i was driving home from work and saw a man on a bike who had been hit by a car. i didn't see him actually get hit, but i saw him on the street, waiting for the ambulance. right after i saw him, chris happened to call me. he had some random question for me. he was late for his tuesday night golf league, and was in a bit of a rush. after i answered his question, i told him about the poor man i just saw. chris' response was, "sounds good! see you later" and he hung up.

i always assumed that chris just half listens to me at times, but now i have actual proof. there was nothing that sounded good about what i had told him.

  2. My hubby does the same thing to me.

  3. LOL BUSTED!!! I def know that my husband only half listens sometimes. When I know he is doing that I start making up really crazy stuff to see just how far I can go before he tunes back in again.


  4. HAHAHA! Oh my gosh, men! That is completely horrible that the guy was hit but oh my gosh that is so funny!

  5. How absolutely adorable is this ensemble
    Love it all

  6. LMAO!
    On the flip side I love that the cardigan with the black dress and heels. It makes it more everyday wearable!

  7. oh my gosh - that is too funny and happens to me a lot!! although I often don't think it's too funny then. :) love that cardigan!!

  8. My husband is exactly the same way. Plus, he's always insisting I never told him about such and such, when we had an entire conversation about it!

    Loving that Heartbreaker sweater!

  9. Hahah, Chris' response is pretty funny :) And you look so cute...love that striped cardi!

    The Other Side of Gray

  10. Ooh busted! I am pretty sure my hubby is the same way a good majority of the time!

    I LOVE your sweater. How cute and so many different styling options!!

  11. LOL too funny! I feel like my bf is the same way, but I know when he calls me and I'm in a rush I might do the same to him. Poor guy on the bike though! Hope he is okay! Also, this outfit is adorable I LOVE those heels!

  12. Hahaha.. o dear.. men! This is a gorgeous outfit -- you look lovely with the cardigan hanging long and loose :)

  13. Haha! My hubby zones out when I'm talking to him sometimes. I'll say something and it'll take him 10 seconds to respond.

  14. LOL sounds like my husband and I only I'm usually the one lacking in the listening department (woops). I love your cardigan!

  15. I love this look! Everything about it is perfect.

    When I worked as a dispatcher I can't even tell you how many times male officers accidentally told me, "OK love you, bye" before hanging up the phone. It would take them about 10 seconds to realize it and I would get an embarrassed second call to apologize and explain that while I was a good dispatcher they really didn't LOVE me. LOL.

  16. omg'd! hahahaha it's not funny, but it's funny! men can be cuckoo crazy sometimes. did you ever tell him again? LOL love your dress and sweater.

  17. I feel the same way about my husband. Haha.

    Love the sweater!


  18. Ooops, Chris! Major blunder. Dang, don't ya just hate when they do that. My prob, is I do it too much to my HM. But, I always have heard him, I have hahahaha. Darling sweater in this outfit. It looks great!

  19. Love the look and the gorgeous pics and men barely ever listen Chris's response is hilarious haha
