walking contradiction.

 denim button-up: belk / cobalt jeans: tjmaxx /scarf: charming charlie's / chloe multi-chain bracelet: c/o Poshlocket / green bracelets: c/o IHOD / ring: pandora, gift / watch: fossil / leopard flats: jessica simpson, belk

- a few week ago i was totally hating on Tom Brady especially when the Patriots beat the Broncos (love mah man, Tebow), while this weekend i'm rooting for him since i'm not the biggest fan of Eli Manning. Go Patriots! (that really hurt to say that...)
- never been a fan of denim over denim, yet i wear it probably once a week these days
- Ashton Kutcher has never been academy-winning in my eyes, but i find myself always falling in love with his character in movies (specifically Valentine's Day and The Killers)
- never been a fan of matchy-matchy, yet all season, i'm finding myself matching colors in most of my outfits as of late
- love a good prank but i get super paranoid if i'm the target of one
- love Mr. Darcy and Pride + Prejudice but cannot watch the 4 hour version ever again 
- i love bright colors (not a secret!) but bright hot pink lipstick intimidates me
- love working out, hate running

and you, friend? any contradictions you dare to share?

much love.
{happy friday, friend.}

  2. Oh this is fun! I might have to do a post like this. BTW I stepped out of my comfort zone and bought a pair of blue tights! I'm sure I won't be able to pull them off like you do- but I always love seeing your looks so I thought I'd go for it!!

  7. Biggest contradiction: I'm from Ohio, & we're genetically pre-disposed to hate Michiganders. But now that I live outside the Midwest, meeting people from Michigan almost feels like a little bit of home from afar!

  8. I think you should try bright pink lipstick. With your beautiful hair and how you have mastered the messy bun look, I think bright pink will look great on you. Try Revlon Lip butter in Lollipop. Since its a drugstore brand you don't have to spend a lot and you won't feel guilty testing it out.

  11. Hmmm, okay, so I hated oxfords at first, but something possessed me to purchase some leopard print ones (I know, when I try something, might as well try it boldly!) and now I love the shoe trend!
    Ha, that's my contradiction.
    Love your denim on denim look here :) You look super adorable. Those bright blue jeans are amazing!

  16. I love your scarf! I hate running too. It's painful, and hard, and it's just horrible.

  17. So fancy! LOVE those pantaloons! COBALT for the win.

  18. i don't like to wear heels but i do because i am so short and need the extra added height!

    happy weekend friend!

  19. Lalaloving those bright cobalt pants! Work it - haha!

    Mmm.. contradictions.. I hate how puppy stores buy from puppy farms (completely wrong/hurtful), but I love to visit the puppies & long to take them home. I love earrings, but I hardly ever wear anything other than studs. I'm a creative person, but my room is lacking in decorating... think that's my next big task!

    Live in love & happy Friday,

    and totally agree about the long version of "pride & prejudice"-- LOVE the one with Kiera Knightley!!!

  23. Are you talking the A&E Pride & Prejudice with Colin Firth, or the older BBC one? The very ending of the BBC one grates on my nerves. Colin Firth is the best Mr. Darcy and I could watch that one over and over and over again. xD

  24. I want your hair! Seriously, why cant mine be that amazing?!

  25. Ahhh, you are too cute! Loving the scarf with the bright pants.

  26. Te-bow! Te-bow!

    I have to tell you that you changed my life. I'm pretty short and always feel that chunky shoes (which I LOVE) make me look like I have no ankles. Then I saw a couple of posts where you rolled up your pants a little bit so your ankle was showing (maybe just to show off your shoes but I took it as a fashion choice) and I thought - THAT'S THE SOLUTION! I am happily wearing my big chunky shoes today, feeling awesome. So thanks.

  31. Contradictions, make us interesting and unpredictable. I am attending the SOCal Meetup tomorrow and my daughter Kai is one of the planners. I do follow you everyday so I get a sense of the type of person you are. They all had such nice things to say about you and that you also donated something to the meetup. I don't know what it is...but thank you anyway. I'm getting a little nervous as I am sure to be like at least twice as old as everyone there. What was I thinking? Have a great weekend and thanks for being so UNPREDICTABLE. haha...er INTERESTING...:)
