appearances can be deceiving

May 31st, 2012

So, I was feeling pretty good about myself the day these photos were taken.  Yup, totally rocking my American Flag shorts, my newly-ombre-ed hair, and my perennial favorite cool-girl Rebecca Minkoff bag.  But, see, here’s the thing.  Even when I’m looking pretty cool, even on my best, coolest day… I am still a huge dork. 

Evidence of this:

About three hours after these photos were taken (and a couple of drinks in), I decided that it was my job to convince all our new Houston friends that Battlestar Galactica is the best show ever (it is) and that they all needed to watch it (they do) and that we were all going to have a huge trip to Galacticon in 2013 (Yes, that’s a thing, I found it on the internet!). 

Chad is pretty sure we will no longer have friends in Houston if I can’t learn to reign in my nerd filter.  So, yeah.  No matter how cool I look, still me.  I guess there’s something comforting in that, no?

Topshop tank and shorts, gifted Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag, gifted Nine West heels, Harwin Street jewelry (Houston’s version of Chinatown), Chanel sunglasses.

    I started reading your blog when it was more about food and wasn’t sure about the fashion direction.  I like pretty clothes, but designer names (and associated prices) are not my thing.  Now I’m convinced that I need to keep reading for the unexpected surprises.  You’re right – Battlestar Galatica IS the best show ever.  I, too, have not been able to convince anyone of the fact and wind up looking like a dork every time I try.  My argument is that it’s not really sci fi.  It’s a political drama that happens to take place in space.

    Istill do dorky thongs sometimes and I’m pretty old. Haven’t been to Harwin in years. I should take my daughter the next time she’s in town. Never saw that movie either. I’m more of a horror movie fan.

    Your shorts are lovely! I have been looking for an American flag pair for ages and haven’t been able to find the rights ones yet. Judging by all of my friends who are from Houston… I’m sure you fit right in 🙂 I can’t say I’m a Galactica fan, but I may or may not enjoy Star Trek a leeeeeeetle too much for my own good. And don’t even get me started on LOST…

    You are SO right about Battlestar Galactica! I have threatened to name our next dog Starbuck. I even liked Caprica 🙂

    While I’ve never seen Battlestar Galactica, I love this post and you look so cute in this outfit – as per usual 😉 I, too, started following when you blog was all about food (looking for a snickerdoodle recipe, I believe)…love the fashion/beauty integration.  Keep it up!!!

    […] face it — for a girl who loves her flag prints as much as I do (hello, hello, hello), the Fourth of July is a serious style holiday!  I didn’t buy these as a […]
