Awkward and Awesome Thursday

Feliz Jueves, which is just Happy Thursday in Spanish
But it sounds a lot fancier doesn't it??
Awkward:
  • This dude that was totally jamming to Jimmy Buffet's Fins in the grocery store parking lot.  Dude had the doors open and was singing at the top of his lungs.
  • Getting an email asking me to partner with a plus size clothing company because my blog and I were the perfect fit.  Yep, I was depressed for 2 days.
  • Went over to our rental property to let the plumber in and noticed a sign on the bonus room door that said, DO NOT open, live CATS inside.  The renters moved their cats in before they moved in.
  • When your eyeliner smudges under your eyes and you don't know it until after you have been around people and look in the rear view mirror and become horrified.
  • When you realize the pair of tights you have on has no working elastic left in the waistband.  How does this even happen?
Awesome:
  • The beautiful cashmere scarf husband brought me back from the Turkish market.  It better get cool again soon so I can wear it.
  • Getting a free sample of Starbucks Pumpkin Latte while waiting at the deli counter in the grocery store.  The timing was perfect I might add.
  • Googling the word preppy and two pictures of me popped up on images.
  • Jason Aldean's new album, Night Train.
  • Dinner Parties
This outfit was inspired by a picture I saw of someone wearing a striped shirt and a leopard cardi.
  I decided to flip it and see how that looked. 
 I added the gunmetal loafers and distressed chino's for a more relaxed look.

How was your week?
Would love to hear about your awkward or awesome moment.

I don't know what was awkward or awesome lately, but your post is dang fun! Awesome: Have my computer working well. Awkward: However it is making a strange sound that is worrying me.

I love the distressed dark mustard jeans. I think you are becoming my next fashion guru!

and ...snaps on being on google to show the example of "preppy". Fun!!!

That guy singing Jimmy Buffet had to of been a sight to see, lol! So awesome that when you googled preppy you came up :) Gotta get the new Jason Aldean CD!

This is a cute outfit with the leopard and striped mix. The pants are great too!

Leslie said...

Love those samples! ..and there's no calories in samples right? :) and what's with the plus size thing?

Rebecca said...

I think partnership offers like that are just spam. I have gotten a few from companies who clearly didn't bother to look at my blog.

Lynne DeVenny said...

Brett, you look so relaxed, yet chic.

Hmmm, how long were those cats there before the peeps? :P

Teddi said...

oh i would laugh so much about the guy jamming in the parking lot. you know you are no where near plus size dear thin brett. i'm glad you didn't lose the elastic in your underpants. wouldn't that be the worst? ;) pretty blouse, & look forward to seeing your cashmere scarf.

Lisa said...

These pants are too cool. You can wear anything and make it looks stylish.

Ha ha -- I wouldn't take awkward #2 personally -- I'm always getting told I'd be a perfect fit to collaborate with random businesses. "You have a great lingerie blog," one email told me recently.

Clara Turbay said...

love it all.

Alex Elizabeth said...

Love this pattern mixing! That eyeliner thing happens to me all the time and I have no idea how to prevent it... other than being attached to a mirror. I've been trying to just wear some dark shadow instead lately.

J9 STYLE said...

Love how you mixed stripes with animal print. To be honest, my whole week was awkward!

Shea Sayers said...

I love the parking lot jammer--I think that's both awkward AND awesome! I love this look, I have a similar blouse and cardi and now I want to try them together!

You look so cute in stripes and leopard, and you tell that plus sized company to actually read your blog!!

Chic on the Cheap

Tinfoil Tiaras said...

I love Jason Aldean's new album too and how funny that you are in the preppy search!!! Plus sized clothing- ha you just have to laugh because it's so far from the truth! Love the pattern combo and those gunmetal flats are incredible! Hope you had a great weekend!

Annie said...

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Hi Brett. Cute outfit and love that you played it down with the ripped pants. Perfect and a fun look too. I am having a give away on a bracelet you might enjoy so come see it and enter if you like it. Hey... It's free and who doesn't love free?

Marla said...

That outfit is very cool.

Sylvia said...

I really like the stripes paired with the leopard print. I never would have thought of putting those two together! I love how you are combining colors and patterns. You look so hip :)

Emmett Katherine said...

love the guy jammin to Jimmy Buffett in his car. I think that's totally awesome and I guess slightly awkward for him!

cute cardi, love the zig-zaggy stripes :)
