Debbie Downer



This outfit is from yesterday, and I meant to write this post earlier today, but I got an awful migraine halfway through the day and could barely focus on my job, let alone a blog post. This headache was partially due to a fraudulent charge that I found on my bank statement and the fact that I had to close my debit card, and partially due to a whole pile of other stress in my life that would be boring to go on about. Then I returned home to a notice that my ModCloth package had arrived but they didn't receive a signature, so they didn't leave it by the door like the other two packages that I received today. So that was super lame, and I'll have to wait 'til tomorrow to get my new things. Sigh.

I know, I'm a complete downer! But sometimes life is just too much. I'm worried I'll make myself sick just dwelling on everything. Too many things to think about!









I'm wearing: H&M skirt and cardi, Target t-shirt, F21 earrings, necklace from Mom.


I'm the Queen of wearing things multiple times, apparently. I feel like all I ever wear is this skirt! I really like it, though. The green is great because it acts like a neutral, but it has this really cool gold beaded waistband that makes it exciting. I dunno. I like it! I pretty much just threw this outfit together at the last second but it turned out well I think.

Tonight Greg and I are driving to the Powell's bookstore in Beaverton for a Patrick Rothfuss signing! His new book The Wise Man's Fear (second in a series after The Name of the Wind) came out yesterday, and I cannot wait to start reading it. It'll be super amazing to meet the author in person and get a signed copy! I've never met any of my favorite authors before, so it'll be a fun new experience. Debating whether I want to try to get a photo with him, though... I totally would but my camera is problematic and I'm worried I'll embarrass myself! Bah.

I can't wait for the weekend. I have so many things I need to get done! If you've bought anything from my shop, please be patient -- I may not be able to mail the packages until tomorrow. I have them all ready to go, but Life, it happens, and I seriously don't know if I can even make it to the post office before the signing tonight. Tomorrow, at the latest!

Okay well this has been a bit of a downer post, but guess what movie comes from Netflix tomorrow? Doom!

Boo for a bad first chunk of your day :( But at least now you get to look forward to the book signing, and getting your new clothes TOMORROW! :D That may not be able to perk you up enough to get you past the fraudulent charge.... but I could recommend you read some sweet stories about a Holmes and Watson love affair. Do it. It'll do your heart good.

I'm pretty pumped about this outfit, to tell you the truth. I've been drooling over everything olive green or light pink lately... and while I don't think that cardi is pink, it's still way cute! I love the birds on it :)

I felt your migraine pain.
All day my brain was aching.

but you look beautiful!

I've been a super Debbie Downer this week too. Everything is Awful.

Anyway, your outfit is super cute. I totally see what you mean about the skirt and I have been coveting that cardigan. I'm gonna go buy it to cheer myself up, I think.

I have total cardi envy. Gotta click over to h&m...someday...
Yay on meeting a fave author! go for the pic, you'll kick yourself if you don't! Wish i could meet Terry Goodkind...

Amber Blue Bird said...

having to a get a new card is a hassle and half. Your outfit is wicked cute and I love that skirt on you, I tried that skirt on at H&M awhile ago and it made my behind look huge, it looks terrific on you though

Michal said...

I love your cardigan! You score the best stuff at H&M.

& chin up! I definitely know the feeling when life is super stressful but things will work out soon. :) "

I'm excited to see your Modcloth stuff!

We all have our bad days girl, don't worry about it. Just get it all out of your system and start a new day! You've got so many good things going for you, I mean, you just got accepted to a dream university for goodness sakes! I'm sure you'll be back to being the opposite of Debbie Downer soon! (BTW, who is the opposite of her? Helga Happy? Haha...okay that was lame.)

listen queenie of that skirt. . .I like that you wear things multiple times because each time looks much different from the next. Most people's remixes are hardly noticeable and are pretty boring. yours, however is not!

That's odd about modcloth. I never have to sign anything and they leave things at my porch if I am not home. I can understand then how you would be down about that.

I am so sorry about the part of your day that was poop, but you looked CUTE and books are cool! I want to go to that bookstore if/when I ever visit Portland (they are always on npr).

I have been meaning to ask you, have you ever read anything by Elizabeth Haydon? (I really hope I got her name right) but I read this book Rhapsody and it was a trilogy and I like the big fat fantasy novels but not as much as regular fiction and anyway, they were really good!

I hope your weekend goes well lady!

Aaaah this outfit is so cute! I love how well these individual pieces fit together, and that cardigan is just sweet. *_*

Hope things go well for you though, the debit card charge must have been quite the scare. D:

I hope your migraine cleared up quickly and that your Debbie Downer kind of day got real better real quick. :)

I am freakishly obsessed with that cardigan, too.

Danielle said...

So cute :) Love this outfit though.
