Skippy Says: Quit Playing Games With My Heart (OOTD)

With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, lots of bloggers have begun to write about things they're thankful for. I think it's an incredibly sweet idea, and since I can be a bit of a Negative Nancy sometimes (with a capital "N" for super negativity) I thought joining in might do me some good.

Today, I'm thankful for having friends that email me deals like this because they remember that time I confessed my love for the Backstreet Boys, yet still want to hang out with me. That would be my friend Meaghan. Only $829 for a 3 night stay on a cruise with Nick, Brian, Howie, AJ, and Kevin? Don't mind if I do! (Don't you judge me for knowing all their names).

  5. You have some great shoes! Love the bag too. The pink and blue play well with each other. And if you love the BSB as much as you do, go on the cruise! New Kids on the Block were my boy band. Aww...memories :) Heather

  10. My best friend is still obsessed with the Backstreet Boys - but she has a newborn now so probably won't make the cruise! You look so cute - I love the paper bag waist on the skirt, and your shoes are adorable.

  11. Thanks! It really is- I've dressed it up and down tons of different ways over the years :)

  12. Thanks :) I actually have such a hard time b/c I have tiny feet (size 4-5) so whenever I see anything cute in my size I snatch it up :)

  13. Thanks Anjali! They're really fun :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks Heather! I hadn't tried this color combo before, but I really loved it. And as much as I love BSB (and it's a lot), I think I could find a better use for $829...you know, like repaying my students loans :(

  15. I don't think Meaghan was getting any sort of percentage, she just saw it and thought of me :)

  16. Thanks Megan! My parents-in-law front yard :)

  17. Thanks Rachel!! The top has been sadly neglected in my closet, but I'm going to try wearing it more

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks Kim! Yeah, I guess I can understand a baby taking priority and all :)

  19. Love,love,love that vintage bag.
    Swooning in envy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love your skirt and I can't believe the price of that amazing bag!! What a great find. Such a chic and stylish outfit! xx

  21. I am totally IN LOVE with this outfit - everything! I'm surprised that isn't a Anthropologie skirt! Anyways, no judging. I'm a gal of the NKOTB era and I was in love with Joey and Jordan!

    And I'm really surprised that you are a negative nancy!! You seem super duper positive to me! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks :) I'm a little obsessed with it too :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks Rachel! I think it was one of my best finds to date :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks Samantha! Yup- BCBG on sale for $30! I snatched it up in gray and white :)

    And it's weird- I am generally really positive to others, but can be really negative and harsh with myself. You know? I think we all do that. But it's good to work on :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Excuse me, but WHO doesn't LOVE the BSB? I most certainly do! I may be even obsessed. Ok, not obsessed. But you know, I like them a REAL LOT. hahahaha. LOVE your shoes, darling! They are beautiful! and of course, so are you, BSB lover or not :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Aw, thanks Laura!! Glad I'm not alone in my crazy love :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. OMG that's amazing. I loved them too when I was younger - they had so many hits! A little sad that now they are playing the cruise circuit :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. "Oh baby, baby/How was I supposed to know/That something wasn't riiiiiight, girl.../Show me how you want it to be/Baby, tell me, 'cause I need to know now, oh, because/My loneliness is killin' me/aaand I, I must confess/I still beliiieve, still believe/When I'm not with you I lose my mind/Give me a siiiiiiiiiiign/Hit me baby one more time!"

    Aaaaand, fin.

    p.s. BSB 4EVA! <--- I'm judging myself a bit for the "4EVA..."

    ReplyDelete
  29. Exactly my though, but not sad enough for me not to want to go if it was cheaper :)

    And I can't believe the Backstreet Boys are doing a cruise... Sounds absolutely unreal and I guess a bit sad...

  41. Heck, we were all pretty crazy about Backstreet Boys. I still can't believe I used to moon after the oldest member of the team - whatshisname. Welcome back from your holiday. Hope you had a great time!

  45. The shoes are to DIE for. Seriously. They're amazing. You mixed so many colors, and they all work so well! But I'm totally coveting those shoes. Why do I not have a pair of lace-up peep-toe shoe boots?! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love that skirt Inna! So backstreet boys is your boy band of choice??? Hmmm ok, mine is 98 degrees. I am still mad that Vanessa is now with Nick...can you believe he passed a fabulous find like me up??? LOL who am I kidding :)

    ReplyDelete

    xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thanks Bessie! I liked 98 degrees too, but BSB were definitely #1 in my book. And I think Nick would be extremely lucky to have you- definitely his loss :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thanks Sayaka. Lol @ going on the cruise- I wish but I think even at 40%, $829 for a 3 night cruise is a bit much....

    ReplyDelete
