Skippy Says: Schooling Myself (OOTD)

I'm hitting the hay real early tonight folks. It's 8:00 p.m., and I have been dreaming of sleep since...well, all of last night. You see, I didn't have the most restful night. I dreamt that I took a sleeping pill thinking that I'd go to bed, but it turned out I had lots of work to work so I couldn't actually go to sleep. But the sleeping pill was making me oh so sleepy. Yes, sleepy in my sleep. Frustrating much? Remember how I said I get cranky when I'm hungry? Well, that also applies to when I'm sleepy. Basically, I'm a child. So I decided to dress like a school teacher, give myself a slap on the wrist, and tell myself to quit whining.







Shop:
- Loft top (Bought on sale for $10! Not available online, may still be in stores. Buy similar on sale here)
- Kersh brand cardigan (Gift from my mother-in-law from a little boutique in Mill Valley, CA. No longer available)
- Anthropologie skirt (Bought on sale a long time ago. Circa 2007 maybe? No longer available. Buy similar here)
- Anthropologie shoes (Bought on sale circa 2008, no longer available)
- San Francisco ThreadShow earrings

  1. I crashed last night at 9:00. That is such a rarity for me, but I was exhausted! Great top. Purple is my favorite color and I love ruffles :) Heather

  2. Ok, are we related? Because I am THE MOODIEST when I'm tired. If I fall asleep on the couch and Kevin tries to move me to the bed, I go NUTS on him. I start stomping into the bedroom whining about how tired I am and how I didn't want to be waken up. Seriously, such a brat when I'm tired - it's a running joke in my family.

  10. HAHAHAHAAH! oh man, you and I are destined to be sisters or something because I am definitely a child! I get cranky when I don't get what I want. Then I mope and then realise I'm 26. Sheesh. Love those shoes!

  11. I would kill for those shoes. They are such a fantastic colour and I love the contrast trim! Cute cardigan too...can't go wrong with something so dainty and chic.

  12. Everyone I've talked to says they didn't sleep well night before last. How weird is that? I slept horribly, so I was a real joy to be around all day yesterday. Someone would ask me if I wanted water and my response was roughly akin to, "::grumpy sigh:: Fiiiiiine." Okay, not really. But that's what I thought... because apparently I'm a four-year-old trapped in a twenty-something body.

  13. Thanks!! I'm so glad you like it. I've been thinking of getting rid of it, but now I'll reconsider :)

  14. Lol, yup, add that to the list for me. I also get cranky if things don't go my way :) And thank you!

  15. Thanks so much! I <3 these shoes too- unfortunately they're not the most comfortable :(

    ReplyDelete
  16. That is weird! And I can definitely relate. Turns out I'm cranky when I'm hungry, tired, or things don't go my way. Childish much?

  22. Those shoes are lovely!

    I always seem to have dreams about getting chased or chasing after someone/thing that I can't catch - work-related much?!

  25. You have so many adorable Anthropologie items! And I've been going to sleep mega early lately - but somehow I don't wake up any earlier..

    ReplyDelete
  26. Like that you have some nice horizontal (ruffles) and vertical (pleats) lines going on in this outfit! I love the sassy pleating and subtle pattern on the skirt as well. Also, just can't go wrong with a purple top ... :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have that top as well Inna :) I actually haven't worn it yet, and I like how you paired it with the pleated skirt! Your shoes are adorable too, I love the vintage t-strap maryjane look!

  30. So this DISQUS thing wouldn't let me post a comment - like I wasn't a human being or something. Anyway, I like your LOFT shell - and for only $10 you practically stole it. I love their sales; they're better priced than Forever 21 sometimes :)

  31. Great job here. i love it all.

  35. Aw, thanks Carrie! I was seriously lacking purple tops in my closet, but I've remedied that now :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks Bessie! I can't wait to see how you style it so I get more ideas :)

  38. Is that a good thing? ;) I'll assume yes and say thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Awl, sorry Anna- sometimes it acts up. And thank you! It (and a few other things) were actually the first time I've purchased anything at Loft, but everything was so cheap and cute I'm sure I'll be back!
