sometimes i talk to myself when i'm tired.

button-up: belk / floral tank, glasses: urban outfitters / jeans: belk
necklace: theblueballoon / nails: OPI dating a royal/ lips: MAC viva glam

wow, ilene. how many times are you gonna start this paragraph without deleting it or getting distracted? we're not gonna say how many times. we're just gonna be flat out honest that it's one of those weeks. ilene is tired. and ilene is talking in third person. and we're gonna - i mean, i'm going to switch back to talk in first-person.

like i was saying the brain is wee bit tired, so we're - i mean, i'm going to play "describe the photos above."

1. i broke one of my own rules, denim on denim and loved it. i think it works 'cause they are different shades of denim. what do you think? yay or nay?

2. wore my vanity glasses which i haven't pulled out since last summer. Ryan loves these glasses so i guess i subconsciously wore them more when he was around. he thinks their HOT which cracks me up since i see them more as FUN glasses, not exactly a pair i'd include on a romantic date. 

3. my new denim trousers are far too long for my 5'3 stature so i hafta, hafta wear really high-heels with them - which isn't too bad but it is another reminder of my height. sigh.

4. floral print. enough said. i'm obsessed with it. 

5. i still am loving my bangs and it makes me happy to hear that Ryan checked them out via blog and i got the thumbs up from him. YES! 

do you ever talk to yourself when you're tired? am i alone in this?

it's okay. you can be a friend and just tell me that i'm losing my mind.
 but hey, it's almost the weekend! and i'm already looking forward to it.  
*doing the happy dance*

 much love.
[happy thursday, friend.]

  2. You're definitely not alone. I think I talk to everyone and everything more when I'm tired. Great denim on denim look.

  3. I talk to myself all the time. Most of the time in my head, but sometimes outloud. I have a 8 month old that doesn't like to sleep, so I do it more often lately. ha ha

  4. Love the denim on denim. I've been looking for some pants with the same cut but have the same problem with the length.

  5. first off, i love the outfit

    second, i don't need to be tired to talk to myself. and i do it (often) in public. embarrassing, i know. at least i have two kids now so i'm (sort of) talking to them.

  6. I talk to myself even when I'm not tired ;)

    I really love that unbuttoned over a print look; I feel like their similar shades bring it together. And yes, the different shades of denim work.

  7. I think the two denims look great! And yea, I talk to myself pretty much all the time or I talk to whatever "thing" I am working with! LOL

  8. at 5'1", I feel your pants-length pain.

  9. Amazing outfit, the denim on denim totally works with the two shades. I tend to talk to myself when I'm crafting alone, or I'll be talking to my cat Hamlet who always has to be in the room with me. :)

  10. Two confessions:
    1. I would wear denim trouser every single day if I could! I love the way the look and feel!
    2. I usually only wear my glasses when I don't want to put on eye makeup. My hubs loves me in glasses too! Guess it's a win/win.
    You are adorable, as always, and if anyone can pull off denim on denim it's YOU!

  11. Oh. Mah word, sweet thang.

    You look so darling in glasses. And bangs. I missed the fact that you had cut bangs. Where have I been?!

    Yes, I totally talk to myself when I'm tired. And lonely. And frustrated. And happy. Basically, I probably talk to myself too much. ::snort::

  12. Not so much tired but I talk to myself at work ALL THE TIME. A lot of us do. When you're busy it's sometimes the only way to keep things straight.

    Sometimes when two of us are punching in orders, it will sound like we're having convos with each other. In reality, we're just talking to ourselves about what we're typing in!

  14. I really LOVE that outfit!! Cute and fun post!

  15. this is the only the denim on denim i have ever seen that i think is super cute! 2 thumbs up. A+

    i think it works because the top is so light and the jeans so dark. also i like how you left the shirt open with another top underneath, and the cut of the jeans.

  16. Denim on denim is very tricky- but I think you totally pulled it off!!! I love the different colors and textures and the floral top is perfect!! and yes. I totally talk to myself. Especially when reading a good book. I'll be sitting by myself saying "what?" "No, she did not just say that!!" "What is he going to do?!?" lol. :)

    2. Totally agree about denim on denim; fresh with a chambray colored shirt like you did it. Just found a tunic in that shade from old navy; love!
    3. Also loving the jeans... and it's fun to wear the super high heels... I'm just barely 5'4.

  29. I loooooooove your pants!

    Hahaha the other day Keith & my dad were watchign Scarface together and I was sitting on the computer stumbling (stumbleupon.com. Okay, maybe I shouldn't tell you about it... because trust me, you will become ADDICTED!) and I stumbled onto this game... and oh man, I was talking to myself SO much!! Hahahaha I completely forgot they could hear me! ;) Until they said something... haha!

    I loooooooove your jeans!! And you look so cute in your glasses! I have an eye doctor appointment next week & I'm SO excited for it! I love trying on new glasses and picking out a new pair! Plus I found this awesome glasses website where they have a bunch under 20$!! AWESOME.

  30. I have to say, that I love how you write. it feels like we are sitting at a cafe somewhere having a conversation. we've never met and yet, I KNOW this is how you talk in real life!

    I'm nervous about denim on denim too. you definitely have to have the confidence to rock it, otherwise it just looks wrong most the time. maybe thats why you can do it and I can't?

  35. I absolutely love today's outfit! I think that the denim on denim looks great. :) And your hair.. I know I've said it before but I love your new 'do! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Those jeans = fabulous. It makes you look taller since you're wearing the heels! I really should try that trick (I'm 5', haha).

    Also, I say that you totally pulled off the denim on denim. :)

  37. Hahah so funny! I started cracking up when I read the title of this post. I sooo do that! And I've been doing it all day today, in fact! LOL

    And LOVE the denim on denim. Totally works :) xoxo

  38. dude, i wanna be blog triplets with you AND sandy. i'm so going to get bangs now. ;)
    and i feel your pain about the pants. i'm 15 and i still wear girl's size 14 jeans...and they are way too short. i figured i can't have it all, so i went with fitting them in the waist rather than being the right length.

    ReplyDelete
  39. uh, i talk to myself when i'm not tired. someone once told me Einstein did this, so i'm gonna roll with that and interpret that its a sign of genius.

    denim on denim totally works. lived in Amsterdam for a year and loads of people were doing it (including me sometimes). go for it!

  40. i give denim on denim two thumbs up. you look great! hot glasses and all!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I always talk to myself when I'm tired. Or sing either one :p

    But I think the denim on denim works because they are different shades. Plus those glasses are cute! I need some new ones.

    And don't worry I'm only about 5'2" So I completely understand! x

    ReplyDelete
  42. Loveee your glasses :). They're more fun to wear when you don't HAVE to wear them haha. Lucky lucky!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I definitely think the denim + denim works when they are two different shades and this looks amazing! Oh and I absolutely talk to myself ALL the time, not just when I'm tired. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Those jeans are HOT! They look great on you!
    And I love your bangs, darling!
    PS Glad you found my blog finally :)

  46. Speaking of talking to yourself, I was running with a friend on Thursday. I was **so** tired and I caught myself saying [whispering]...."Okay. Okay. Okay." Like with each step AS I AM RUNNING with my friend. I had to apologize to her for talking to myself.

    I talk to myself because I don't have any sisters and I catch myself doing that waaaaaaaaay more than I'd admit it. :)
