Skippy Says: I'm Hangry (OOTD)

I get Cranky when I'm hungry. As in, Ca-ran-ky. Notice the capital "C"s. You think I'm kidding? Don't let my 5 foot tall frame fool you, I am t-e-r-r-i-f-y-i-n-g. So terrifying, in fact, that my mom and Ryan have taken to carrying emergency snacks on them at all times in case hunger strikes and we're not near some place where I can get food. Now do you believe me? I told this to my boss once, and she told me that she is the same way and that when she was a little girl her mother used to send her to camp with a sign that said "Lauren gets cranky when she's hungry." I'm thinking I should get me one of those. That way, the poor random strangers I snap at for no reason sometimes might understand. Oh, and if my smile looks a little forced in the photos below (especially in the third one) it's because I was getting hangry, and wanted to get these shots done quickly so I could go eat.

  4. I get hangry too. I love this term. I like to leave food in my car just in case hangry strikes. You are funny! Adorable outfit, love your trench too. Dawn Suitcase vignettes xo

  5. lol at the getting hungry thing. I'm cranky in the morning, then I suddenly get obnoxiously happy. Once the sun starts to go down though, I become really cranky again. I should probably move somewhere where they have long days everyday. hahaha

    I love that jacket and your earrings. Believe it or not, I think your nail polish color is fab! (I'm going for my biweekly mani tomorrow. LOL)

  7. Haha, well first, I love this look. But I love that they carry emergency eats for you. I think I should talk my fiance into doing that for me.

  8. Hahaha, you crack me up! I don't think you look cranky at all, but I believe you if you say you were. You still look adorable, though. I'm loving that skirt!

  9. Ha ha! I get cranky when I am hungry too. When I was pregnant with Kayla a friend was picking me up to go eat. She was late and I started crying, lol! I was hungry, but I really just think it was the crazy pregnancy hormones, lol! Anyway, you look adorable as usual! Heather

  10. Cute! I can't tell it was a forced smile, but I get the same way when I'm hungry. I can be such a brat when hunger strikes.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh, I share your hangry feelings, I get so short with people when I need a snack. Per usual you look fantastic, that coat is so cute and the pleated details on the skrt are sweet too! You always do a great time of combining colors! Have a great weekend!

  12. I get super cranky too when I'm hungry...and it gets pretty bad. I have this relationship with food where I love it then I hate it after I eat? Probably not healthy right? hahaha.

    Another great outfit chica!!

  13. Cute trench! And I love the color of the skirt. My husband carries "treats" with him when we are out in case hunger strikes me - he calls it the "Danger Zone." Oddly, since I've switched to a vegetarian/vegan diet, I haven't been hungry at all!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well, I don't get as cranky when I'm hungry but I'm not too happy either...especially since I always, ALWAYS forget to bring a snack with me. I love the red skirt, I need to find myself one just as pretty, I don't have nearly enough red in my closet.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thanks so much! I'm the same way with sleep too- it's like I'm a freaking child! But that's another topic for another post :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hehe, glad I'm in good company :) And thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks so much Dawn. You better believe there is lots of emergency snacks in my car :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Lol, moving somewhere with long days sounds like a good idea then! I could benefit from that myself! And thank you! I've been getting the gel (shellac?) manicures and love them

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thanks Sarah! You definitely should- it's a fiance's duty :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thanks Hannah!! I was about to bite Ryan's head off :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lol! I've definitely cried out of hangryness before, and I don't even have a pregnancy excuse!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks Megan! I'm glad I'm in good (albeit bratty :)) company!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Lol, I think it should be all about the love. Though I know what you mean when I eat one too many brownies (and I only consider it one too many when I've had like 4 :))
    And thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks!! Lol at the danger zone- that's definitely me. I just recently went vegetarian about 3 weeks ago- I wonder if it'll have the same impact on me? Though I doubt it :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks Ana! I wish I was like that, but unfortunately I am one cranky hungry girl

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks so much Cara!! I wish all I did was get short when I was hangry- that would be a win. I'm downright mean :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. this is really pretty outfit, love it

    ReplyDelete
  28. Never thought of it before but the blue goes well with reds! LOL. I'm cranky when I'm hungry and hubby knows to steer clear of me. Unfortunately, Lil L has inherited this horrible trait of mine.

    ReplyDelete
  29. You look so cute! I love this outfit. I am slightly obsessed with how you tie your scarves. They look so fabulous. I don't have any idea how you do it!

    ReplyDelete
  30. OMG! I'm seriously the same way. I go all Jekyll and Hyde on poor unsuspecting strangers -- and non-strangers, for that matter -- when I get hungry.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hahah!! I'm the same way. Whenever I'm dieting, the hubs says he better stay on my good side. lol It's terrible!

    I really love this outfit! The bright colors are so cheery!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love your skirt! Amazing color!

  34. Thanks! Ryan has learned to stay away from me too :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Aw Courtney thank you! For this one I literally wrapped it around my neck twice, took the two ends, and then tied them like I would a knot. That's it!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well then I am in very good company :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Lol, yeah, diets definitely don't work for me because of this lovely trait of mine. I just try to eat as healthy as I can most of the time :) And thank you!!

    ReplyDelete

  53. My best friend's dad was seriously contemplating a divorce from her mom because she would get murderous during certain times of a day. He then figured out she was hungry. So yeah, a sandwich saved their marriage.

    I love the red skirt. It adds so much interest to the outfit.

  63. I get super cranky when I'm hungry. Oh man, like you don't even want to deal with me when I haven't eaten. What can I say? I am what I eat, and I eat food. If that didn't make sense, I'm probably hungry.

    ps. I love that coat!

    ReplyDelete
  64. LOL, makes perfect sense to me, but maybe I'm just hungry too :) And thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  65. great look! :)
    love your skirt!

  69. Ooh I'm always grouchy too when hungry. I get full pretty fast so feeling hungry is a rare feeling for me and thus I always expect it to be quenched right away!!

    ReplyDelete

  72. how funny!! my hubby is the same way he's hungry. i actually pack snacks in my purse especially for him! i can usually power my way through the hunger pangs. :)

    and i really love the beautiful blue scarf and the way you tied it!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Lol, I guess the roles are reversed in our relationships :) I'm definitely the guy in the hangry sense- Ryan can easily power through
    And thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I adore your red skirt! I get very, very cranky too when I'm hungry. I don't like waiting to get food... pretty superficial no? x

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thanks! I don't know if it's superficial, but it's very primal :)
