An outfit and a quiz


Another morning of outfit photos before Makeup. So I did what I dislike most and took a glasses photo.

I had no energy for my hair today. I had 5 hours sleep (I am one of those people who can not function on less than 6.5-7 I blame my anemia) I did my hair in Kasmira's Messy Girl Updo with two hair sticks. I haven't been able to wear my hair up much because it is so darn cold I have to wear a hat most days. Today the sun is out though!

Green steve cami H&M
Black shirt that has some little detail. Not so plain? Ann Taylor Loft
Sweater NY & CO
Skirt Target
Tights unsure
Shoes Aldo
Bangles various gifts. I have on 21 bracelets.

Oh and I do not have on teal tights like the shoe detail. I thought people knew but I still get comments. I reuse details photos. I have giant labeled sets of accessories, shoes and such and plug and play where needed. Always refer to the full length photo if you see something that confuses you.

I don't know what is up with this cardigan. I have it in this green, the neon orange and big bird yellow (not mustard) and they are all the same size. The orange is the only one that has been washed (or so I think) so why all a sudden is this one too small? Look at the sleeves! Maybe it went to the cleaners and I didn't realize. I partake in fluff and fold as a dubious luxury (yes that doesn't make sense SHUT UP)

You can see how it all hangs better here

Whenever I post an outfit and quiz on the same day one gets love and the other doesn't. Hey I am human I put things out there because I want dialog and interaction (I do not need just praise like some people) Hey I like to hear you like your cat or what you had for dinner. I want to know how your day was it isn't a rhetorical question..

I really like this outfit! My sleeves always shrink (although I don't think one has ever shrunk without me washing it though). I don't think I have particularly long arms but it's hard to find a top that has sleeves long enough after one wash...this is one of the many reasons I always just push my sleeves up to my elbows!

Have you ever been camping?
Yes, although now that I think about it, the last time was in college! That was far too long ago. It was me and a group of girl friends and we went camping for a few days on someone's property so it wasn't a campground or anything and we camped at the PRETTIEST spot right by a river on a hill. I need to find those pictures again, because it was awesome.

Were you a boy/girl scout?
I was a Brownie for one year. Then I found out the girl scouts didn't do fun things like boy scouts did, so I quit.

Do you sing in the car/shower?
I sing in the car, not in the shower.

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why?
Dinosaurs because they were real!

Ever ridden a horse?
Yes! We used to ride them at state parks on every summer vacation when I was growing up. I want to get BF up on a horse (he's never done it) but he isn't a fan of the idea.

Do you remember your dreams?
Only sometimes. Last night, I was trapped at an Italian train station and a group of bad guys kidnapped my brother. It was awful.

Can you speak any other language?
I took six years of Latin, I even minored in it and was the president of the honor society, but I am CRAP at it now because I'm so out of practice. I also took German for two years but I'm pretty bad at that too.

Do you have any hidden talents?
Not that I can think of!

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do?
Well, I live right by my family and usually we all just meet at my parents' house. If I think my parents are coming over, I make sure the dishes are done. If my older brother is coming over, I put Traci outside because he hates dogs. My little brother requires no preparation :)

I deiced it HAD to go to fluff in fold because I found it this morning folded in the closet which is very unlike me to do but is something dave would do after he emptied the already folded laundry bag.

C Lo said...

Love the outfit. I am also operating on a negative amount of sleep this week and it's killing me.

Have you ever been camping?
Yes. Lots when I was a kid, moderate amounts as a teen/twenty something, not a ton since I got into my thirties.

Were you a boy/girl scout?
Nope. I was in 4-h for a year, though.

Do you sing in the car/shower?
YES. I'm one of those people who you make fun of when you see them on the freeway because I sing loudly and put on little performances in the car.

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why?
NEITHER. THEY ARE NERDY.

Ever ridden a horse?
Yes. The woman who gave birth to me raised horses and trained them for a living, so I had horses till I was about 15. I was on a horse from the time I was 3 and I even helped birth one when I was about 9 or 10.

Do you remember your dreams?
Mostly.

Can you speak any other language?
Very very broken French.

Do you have any hidden talents?
I immediately thought something crude. I'm just gonna say "no".

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do?
CLEAN LIKE A MOFO.

hillary said...

Nerds REPRESENT.

OK that is going on my "can you be my friend" questionnaire.

Becky said...

My NY&Co sweaters do the same thing once I've washed them, so I'm thinking yours snuck (sneaked?) out of the house for a romp in the laundry? Who knows.
Quiz!

Have you ever been camping?
Yes, I used to go camping all the time with Girl Scouts (damn I gave away my answer to the next question!) and with my family; however, I haven't been camping for a LONG time. Probably 6 or more years.

Were you a boy/girl scout? Yes I was! I was a Girl Scout from the age 5 to 17. I only got as far as my Silver Award, but I am surprisingly handy in the wilderness.

Do you sing in the car/shower?
When I had a car, I would sing in it all the time! So, now I sing in the shower if my roommates aren't home. Sometimes I sing for my boyfriend if he makes me. He sings for me all the time...I love his singing voice. :)

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why?
Dragons! They're sparklier, duh.

Ever ridden a horse?
Yep! Probably only like 10 times though.

Do you remember your dreams?
It depends. Usually, no, but sometimes I have dreams I can remember for years!

Can you speak any other language?
I can speak elementary Spanish. I can understand mostly anything written in Spanish though. Not good with the speaking/hearing.

Do you have any hidden talents?
Ummm, my elbows invert if I extend my arm all the way and it freaks people out. That counts, right?

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do?
The very first thing? Give hugs and kisses. Then go eat. We're big into the eating.

Becky said...

I forgot to subscribe, too! I do that all the time, which is why I come back to your site like 5 times a day. (haha can you see that? And is that something on google analytics that you can see how many times someone visits? I wanna know who's snoopin on my blog, too!)

hillary said...

My answers!
Have you ever been camping?
Yes a quadbillion times. That was my families "vacation"

Were you a boy/girl scout?
yes I was! from 7 to 13.

Do you sing in the car/shower?
Well I am strictly a "is driven" by someone else person but I definitely sing in the car. Loud and often. I sing in the shower too. I usually make songs up about Waffle as she sits on the ledge and watches me shower. (it isn't as weird as it sounds)

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why?
DINOSAURS but don't tell skorch.
I love me some dinosaurs and I gave dave a good talking to when his Gondwanaland project last semester didn't mention a single dinosaur.

Ever ridden a horse?
Yes and I freaked my shit out. A guy I dated had a bunch. He put me on the "twitchy mean one" and I got scared and started screaming. Now if it was a unicorn I might of been ok.

Do you remember your dreams?
Yes I had a fucked up one the other night that kinda made me think I would be a bad mom. I had one last week RObert Downey made me a mixed tape.

Can you speak any other language?
hillarylandish
I can ask how you are in Russian.

Do you have any hidden talents?
I can pick things up with my toes.

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do?
Is it my family? Clean like a fool and hide shit (things I paid too much for) if it's dave's family I make him do the ugly cleaning and I make sure to put shoes by the door. WE DON'T ALLOW SHOES IN OUR HOUSE TAKE THEM OFF I also light a candle. I fear it smells like kittens.

hillary said...

Becky you need to know what your looking for. I have two trackers and I can see like if someone came from one link and how many times. But I can't tell YOU came back all those times. I don't think I can at least. I had one woman come back 52 times in a matter of days from her obscure link. She is a little wacky though.

Beck, At Her Best said...

I love the outfit! The green looks so crisp with the white & black, and houndstooth is awesome to begin with.

Quiz TIME!

Have you ever been camping? Yes! I love camping. I'm from the Adirondacks in NY so it was easy to run off into the woods and sleep out all night. One of my aunts has a lot of property that we built a camping area with a lean-to on so there were a lot of summers spent there too.

Were you a boy/girl scout? I was a brownie, but only for a year because my town was so small we only had a brownie leader and it was too far to go to girl scouts

Do you sing in the car/shower? In the car, yes sometimes. Not so much singing in the shower

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why? I'd say dragons just because they're cooler. They can fly! They breathe fire! or something...

Ever ridden a horse? Yes. It scares me

Do you remember your dreams? No - I dont think I sleep long enough to have dreams

Can you speak any other language? Took French all through high school so a little of that, a little Spanish from college and I've tried teaching myself italian and german so a smattering of those, but now not enough of any to hold a conversation. I plan on reviewing to brush up this summer.

Do you have any hidden talents?
If I do I can never remember them when someone asks me this question

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do? When my family comes to visit its always to go to a craft fair in my city. My mom has never been to my apt., which I'm fine with since I dont control the state of the general living space oh wait, any space.

Jane W. said...

Love the plaid blouse! And I love quizzes, so here goes....

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why? Dinosaurs--no fire hazard.

Ever ridden a horse? Yes, but I am very allergic to them and my eyes swell up like pingpong balls.

Do you remember your dreams? Yes.

Can you speak any other language? French.

Do you have any hidden talents? I don't hide my talents.

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do? Buy food.

Rachael said...

Have you ever been camping? tons...my dad is a major boy scout and we camped hardcore...we were lucky if there was an outhouse

Were you a boy/girl scout? I did brownies for about two years

Do you sing in the car/shower? both, especially in the car. The other drivers probably think I'm crazy.

maybe a dragon to wander around and keep me warm

Ever ridden a horse?
yep, but not for a long time, sadly

Do you remember your dreams?
yes, they have been very weird lately

I can read Spanish, but I can't really put a sentence together on my own anymore

Do you have any hidden talents?
not really

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do?
vacuum and then make tacos

Totally Inspired said...

After reading this post and all the comments, I was laughing sooohard. You all are hilarious! Thanks...

So I will indulge but I am sure that my answers will not be as funny as you.

Have you ever been camping? Not really. I am a city gurl. I dont do well with out the major ammenities, like running water and electricity. OH WAIT!! I did go "pseudo camping" one time. But it was so phony.

Were you a boy/girl scout? Nope. Well, maybe. I think I was in it for like one day and never went back. Who knows why.

Do you sing in the car/shower? ALLLLLLL the TIME!! I love to sing. But I CANT sing at all. Who cares. Its one of those things that I do that makes ME happy! so i song.. la la laaaaaaaa

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why?
Hmmmmm... I cant really decide. they both are pretty scarey to me. I will go with Dinosaurs, only because of Jurassic Park (But then again, maybe I will pick Dragons because of Shrek, lol!)

Ever ridden a horse? Yup. But those have been pretty phony too. I say that because it was always on a dinky trail with some skinny horse (the horses on our honeymoon were the worst I had ever seen. they look so sickly. but they were strong).

Do you remember your dreams? Most of the time. Especially the scary ones. And then I call my sister no matter what the time, so I can tell her about it. She never forgets.

Can you speak any other language? Well, I too took Latin (2 yrs)and German (1 yrs). And I also took Japanese (3yrs maybe 4 yrs). But I cant really speak any of it.

Do you have any hidden talents? hmmm, i think i will keep them hidden

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do? Clean the kitchen. its usually a mess. And then I pull out the bottle of wine.

Erin said...

Quiz TIME!

Yes, but I see no reason to sleep on the ground now that we have houses.

Were you a boy/girl scout?
I was a Brownie!

Do you sing in the car/shower?
I sing everywhere!

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why?
Dude, dragons, totally. Cause they could be here now...umm, if I believed in fantasy stuff like that.

Ever ridden a horse?
My dad was/is a cowboy. I first rode alone (not being led) when I was six.

Do you remember your dreams?
Usually at least bits and pieces, if not whole chunks.

Nope. Three years of French, two of Latin, and I don't remember enough.

Do you have any hidden talents?
If I told you they wouldn't be hidden.

Your family is coming to visit what's the first thing you do?
Hide everything my niece and nephew could (lovingly)destroy.

Kelly said...

Becky - no fair! That's why I quit the girl scouts. The boy scouts went camping and stuff while we just learned how to set the table, fold a flag, etc. Boo.

hillary said...

My girlscout troop was badass we did all kinds of fun stuff. But only because my friend's moms were the leaders. I didn't get to half the stuff though because I was always in time out.

Kimberly said...

Love those cardigans!! Seriously why didn't I buy some before they only had XS and S left!

Have you ever been camping?
Once when I was 20 and my boyfriend told me it would be fun. It wasn't fun no matter how much I drank. It was hot, scary, uncomfortable and the bathroom was way too far away. Now the closet thing I do to camping is roughing it at a less than 4 star hotel!

Were you a boy/girl scout?
Nope, my mom had to work late on Mondays (when the meetings were) and there was no one to take me/pick me up.

Do you sing in the car/shower?
Car - yes loudly and proudly
Shower - I'm usually still asleep while showering to sing

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why?
Dinos - they remind me of the Flintstones which I loved as a kid.

Ever ridden a horse?
Yes, my neighbors while growing up had a horse farm. It was great!

Do you remember your dreams?
No, unless it is scary and wakes me up.

Can you speak any other language?
Estamos aquí para la cerveza fría por favor.
and that is where it ends despite 4 years of Spanish in HS/College (I actually changed my major just so I wouldn't have to take more than a year of foreign language in college)

Do you have any hidden talents?
No, I prefer to share all of my talents with the world.

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do?
Book their hotel rooms

Erin said...

Have you ever been camping?
Once in 8th grade. When I came home, my cat had died, so I've never been camping since.

Were you a boy/girl scout?
I was a Brownie for a week in 1st grade, but quite because I didn't like playing Mother May I or the snacks our leader fed us.

Do you sing in the car/shower?
Definitely in the car. Not so much the shower, as I shower at 4:40 AM and am barely conscious, let alone musical.

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why?
Dinosaurs because I like their nickname- Jesus ponies.

Ever ridden a horse?
Oh heck yeah. I used to be able to stand up on a moving one.

Do you remember your dreams?
Every now again, but not consistently.

French! And after 8 yrs. of French classes, I finally get to go to Paris this summer.

Do you have any hidden talents?
I can weld.

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do?
Run around the house, tidying like a mad woman.

Becky said...

FL has some FANTASTIC Girl Scouts only camps. But we also went on a trip through NH, MA, VT, and ME that was some epic camping and hiking experience. Seriously, I still can't believe I did that. Look at me now a grown up girl in NYC! :)

Emily Kennedy said...

I like this! It reminds me of the Milly Fall '10 line pictures that I'm seeing on the internets.

Have you ever been camping? Yes oh yes.

Were you a boy/girl scout? I was a brownie for about a minute.

Do you sing in the car/shower? I sing whenever no one is listening. And in front of my hubby.

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why? DRAGONS! Because I like fantasy role-playing games.

Cara said...

Have you ever been camping? For years we camped at least once every summer. We even camped our way to both coasts of Canada (We live close to the middle). I used to even camp in our trailer on our drive way (usually when we had guests over and not enough beds). It's a tradition I hope to continue when I have a family - there's nothing better than hearing kids whine about lack of internet access!

Were you a boy/girl scout? I was a brownie and a guide. I have no fond memories... just memories of rainy tents and bad trail mix. I do still have my uniform somewhere, and in my mind it still fits me, in a non-slutty way.

Do you sing in the car/shower? Yes, I've finally been able to resume that practice! For the longest time, after Scott and I started dating, and then after we moved in together, I was petrified of singing if he could hear me, and he always seemed to be around. However, now that we're engaged, I've unlocked my vocal cords, and am constantly singing.

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why? Up until a couple days ago, it would have been dinosaurs. However, my mother-in-law to be was going through her house, and mentioned that she had a few cookie jars for me, if I wanted one. While I was expecting some rather boring ones, there was a pink dragon cookie jar which I just had to have. It doesn't match a single thing in my kitchen, but it's so friggin' adorable.

Ever ridden a horse? I was on one for about 2 minutes in grade 4, and I think that was it. I'd really love to actually ride one!

Do you remember your dreams? Parts of them, and generally the disturbing parts, like my father convincing me to take the side of my brother-in-law and not my sister if they divorced... or the father driving into a lake with his children in his truck. Hmm... I'm starting to wonder if I have subconscious father issues...

Can you speak any other language?
I speak French, and a touch of sign language

Do you have any hidden talents?
I knit, but that's not so hidden. I can make frog noises with my throat.

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do? My family or my in-laws? Wait... it doesn't matter... panickedly clean every visible portion of my house, and every non-visible portion, if there's time... you never know who might be snooping where.

I love the quizzes!

paisleyapron said...

Found your blog recently...but have only been lurking over on my Google Reader. Glad you posted a quiz so I can pipe up.

Were you a boy/girl scout? Neither, but I wanted to be a Cub Scout like my brothers.

Do you sing in the car/shower? Car

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why? Dinos. Having two little boys does that to you.

Ever ridden a horse? Hubby required it before the wedding day. That and shooting a shotgun.

Do you remember your dreams? Mostly.

Can you speak any other language? French, on a good day. You'd think after studying it for 12 years, it would come easier.

Do you have any hidden talents? I make my own paperback books.

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do? Hug and kiss and cry and laugh.

I can also pick up stuff with my toes.

Thank you everyone for playing! EVen my mom got in on the action. Your answers are hilarious. and I am pretty surprised it was a good 50/50 on the dino vs dragon.

My family did come to visit yesterday and there was from frantic cleaning done!

Emily B. said...

Am I too late to play? I love your quizzes. I miss them on flickr.

Have you ever been camping? Many times. I made a rule, though, only to go to campgrounds with hot showers. I don't do well without.

Were you a boy/girl scout? I was a brownie for five seconds.

LOVE the fun outfit! I keep eyeing shoes like those and wondering what I'd put with them.

Have you ever been camping? Yes, but I'm not a happy camper. Luckily, my husband isn't a camper either, so we've never been as a family.

Were you a boy/girl scout? Nope. Just a fan of the cookies.

Do you sing in the car/shower? I sing in the car more than the shower.

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why? I guess dragons.

Ever ridden a horse? Yes, but my legs were too short for the straps so I kept sliding to the side. Kinda freaky.

Can you speak any other language? I used to speak Spanish, but I overheard some women at the store the other day and realized I didn't understand much of it anymore.

Do you have any hidden talents?
I can recite my 1st grade roll call still. And I'm old, so that's quite an accomplishment.

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do?
Start cleaning like crazy. I don't think they're aware of what a slob I am.

Yes, hundreds of times! Love it.

Do you have any hidden talents? I need to come up with a stock answer for questions like this - I can never think of any in the moment!

You have the best shoes... I love those spectators! And the black/white green combo with your red hair is ravishing, darling, just ravishing! Hmm... must keep this in mind :)

And now, the quizzy quiz.

--

Have you ever been camping?
Yes, on school trips, but I want this to change. I'm hoping to plan a camping trip to Yosemite this Summer!

Were you a boy/girl scout?
I was a brownie for like a day before the group disbanded. Not sure what happened there...

Do you sing in the car/shower?
I loooove to sing in my car. Anytime I'm by myself (or with people who won't judge me or like to sing along too) I love to rock out. I do it all... sing along with the music loud not really concentrating on how I sound, turn the music down and try to sound all awesome and shit, and sometimes I'll even go acapella (alone of course). I love to sing, and in my wildest fantasies would be a famous lesbian country singer!

Dinosaurs or dragons? and why?
Dragons because of Harry Potter. Duh.

Ever ridden a horse?
Yes, at Camp Hollywoodland as a child.

Do you remember your dreams?
Sometimes... um like the one I had last night which I won't mention again because I feel like a creepster!

Can you speak any other language?
I can get by with my Spanish... I was the bomb at it in high school, but years of hardly using it has sucked out all of my vocab.

Do you have any hidden talents?
Hmmm none that I can think of.

Your family is coming to visit whats the first thing you do?
Clean my apartment and hide anything sex related! Ha, I hope my mom isn't reading this :)
