Fashion Friday: Edition yep I have a cold

Here’s a free lesson.

When you inadvertently share a toothbrush with someone and they have a cold? There’s a good chance you’re going to catch it.

I felt it settle into my head around 9:30 last night when I crawled into bed. And, sure enough, when I walked into the kitchen yesterday morning P told me I looked like I’d given up on life. I couldn’t even argue with him because I totally did.

I was a train wreck.

But then I took a 12 hour Sudafed and spent the rest of the day feeling like Jessie Spano on that episode of Saved By The Bell where she takes drugs to stay awake and ends up yelling “I’M SO EXCITED, I’M SO EXCITED!” until she collapses.

Which is about where I am right now.

Before I go, here are some cute things I found this week. Also, I need to confess that I’ve seen every episode of Saved By The Bell and I particularly loved Saved By The Bell: The College Years.

Judge me if you must.

1. pleasant chevron top

Photobucket

Every week I think I’m not going to post anymore chevron stuff and every week I am lying. I can’t help it. I’m a fan.

2. honey mustard criss cross sweater

This is really cute and I love the color. It would look great with a bunch of different colors and is perfect to transition outfits to the spring.

3. mermaid in love top

Photobucket

I love a little sparkle. This would be good with some white jeans and a denim jacket over it. Or under a black blazer.

4. forever zigzag dress in laguna

Photobucket

See? BIG FAT LIAR.

(I have no idea why this picture is so small. I blame Jessie Spano.)

5. turquoise chunky necklace

Photobucket

You know I love a turquoise necklace.

6. sunset sail dress

This is just really pretty. I love the colors and the way they fade into each other. If I were going on a tropical vacation to anywhere besides Port Aransas this summer, I would totally buy this dress.

7. old navy boyfriend cardis

Photobucket

Another great piece to transition into spring. I love all the bright colors.

8. golden apple printed blouse

This kind of reminds me of something Jane Fonda wore in Nine to Five. Which may make me love it that much more.

9. silk button down blouse

Photobucket

I love cobalt blue.

10. suddenly skinny leggings

Last week I forgot to tell you about these leggings at Target. I haven’t tried them yet, but I hear they are really good.

That’s it for today.

Y’all have a great Friday.

I’m so excited.

    I LOVE that maxi dress, the only drawback is, I’m a munchkin…only 5’4″ if I’m having a good day. Maxi dresses are ALWAYS too long for me. :( I’m definitely gonna check out those leggings.

    oh my goodness … i totally forgot about that episode.
    “i’m so excited. i’m so excited. I’m so … so … scared” {as she sobs}.
    love it.

    Great clothes! Please keep us updated on the Sudafed and cold “sitch”. I’ve got the second round of this nasty stuff and can’t shake it.

    If you’re thinking of someplace really exotic this summer, you should come to Galveston again. The Pleasure Pier adds that cheesy sparkle that Galveston has been lacking.

    I hope that you get to feeling better quickly! I finally kicked that cold to the curb after 2 weeks :(
    I blame mine on sharing the air with my fellow commuters on the metro bus.. At least you know that yours came from Caroline. Take good care..

  6. 6

    Girl, you had me at the “saved by the bell” reference. Hide your new tooth brush from Caroline.

    Oh my goodness! I love that you loved Saved By The Bell! My kids have been watching it on Netflix for a couple of weeks now and it has been a flashback to my teen years. It’s all they talk about with their friends because they all have Netflix too, and apparently it’s the thing to watch. I must admit, I’ve been enjoying it, too! We just watched the I’M SO EXCITED episode a couple of days ago.
    Here is a little trivia for you: Saved By The Bell started out as Good Morning Miss Bliss and was set in Indianapolis, Indiana.
    I know. Very useful. :)
    I am anxiously awaiting the arrivial of your book! Yay!
    Hope you feel better soon!

    Oh my goodness…my sister and I would laugh until we cried when watching ‘ol Jessie Spano freak out on that episode. “I’m….so….scared.” !!

  9. 9

    I remember that episode being so sobering when I watched it as a kid. Of course now it’s the go-to in any situation where copious amounts of YouTube watching is going on, because everyone remembers it and oh, it has not aged well!

    I, too, took 12 hr Sudafed to help kick my cold/ear infection a few weeks ago. It was cra cra!! I don’t do well with stimulants of any kind, so Sudafed was infinitely more powerful than anything I’d ever taken. It is unfathomable to me why or how anyone would ever become addicted to drugs of that nature. I felt like Barney Fife the entire time I was taking those!

    My friend Molly is the national champion in Saved by the Bell trivia. That’s right. And he is MY friend!

    Hey, Mel! Did you know that Mark-Paul Gosselaar (a.k.a. Zack Morris) went to Texas A&M? I think he was only there for a semester or two, but my roommates and I were always on the lookout and spotted him a few times. That would have been ’93 or’94 I think.

    Thank you for the Jane Fonda “9 to 5″ reference. I needed that smile today. Although, the tune that won’t leave my head now is soon to get annoying. C’mon, sing it with me.

  14. 14

    I would judge you if you didn’t love Saved by the Bell. Jessie on her caffeine pills is what I think of every time I say “I’m so excited.” I had to youtube it just to live it one more time.

    And 9 to 5? I don’t know why my parents let me watch that, but they did. Over and over (thanks, HBO!). Hilarious.

    Love your maxi dress selection…..just ordered it……in May going to Vegas baby!!…..thanks for your wardrobe assistance :)

  16. 16

    I think I am much more likely to judge people who haven’t seen every episode of Saved By The Bell, rather than judge people who have. Such a great show!

    I love:

    #1 : Um, yes. This is everything right in the world :) Reminds me spring is on the way!
    #3: The older I get, the more I revert to my childhood…which means squins?! YES PLEASE! :)
    #7: I love a good sweater. Always. :)

  18. 18

    Love these finds–so many remind me of spring! Especially the sunset sail dress & peasant top.
    Hope you feel better soon!

    Oh my goodness, you just made me so happy bringing up Jessie Spano (twice, no less. And she even got blamed for the small picture — hilarious.) but also that scene!!! She also says “I’m so … scared.” really dramatically after dancing like a maniac. My husband used to work nights and his wind down time in the mornings when I’d be getting ready to leave for work was lying on the couch with our dog and watching Saved by the Bell reruns. Anyway, that show makes me happy. And also I’m so excited for your book!! You mentioned this week that you won’t talk about it again, but I hope you do!!! I’d love to hear more about it and how you are feeling now!

  20. 20

    OH man, I used to love Saved by the Bell. I haven’t watched it in forever. The “I’m so excited” episode was great!

    I really hope you get to feeling better. Those colds bite big time. I am finally feeling better after having an upper respiratory infection that turned into a sinus infection. I didn’t think I was ever going to quit coughing!

  21. 21

    Thanks for the laugh with the Saved by the Bell reference, I remember that episode well! :)

    I’M SO EXCITED! I’M SO EXCITED! I’M SO…..scared…

    I hate being trendy, but I can’t stop loving chevron either. In fact, a friend is making me a chevron headband this weekend.

    I feel a chevron thing going on here. Good luck with getting well, soon! My advice: Feed a cold and in seven days you’ll start to feel better. Starve a cold and in seven days you’ll feel better. Yeah. Right. It mean’s whatever you do/don’t do, in seven days you’ll be feeling better. Oh. Lot’s of chicken noodle soup! (That’s the Jewish grandmother in me talking. I’m not actually a Jewish grandmother, I just pretend to be one when giving unasked for advice. That and I use “oy” and “oy vey” — a lot.)
