Keepin' It Golden

I went to the NBC Experience Store in NYC when my mother-in-law was visiting. It was an experience. I got a Law and Order mug. These are their stories. My story is that I like coffee. And Law and Order. And the Golden Girls. Yeah, I got this sweet t-shirt there too. Tonight is Fashion’s Night Out and, because I am leaving for camping tomorrow (this rain really needs to stop) and because I teach on Thursdays, I am being super lame/tame this year and not making the trip into NYC for what I am sure will be an evening of insane fun … so I’m consoling myself by wearing this shirt. It’s working.







In perhaps less ridiculous news, I am officially obsessed with these various blazers from Zara. I seriously love me some nice blazers.

I want to stay golden. That shirt is amazing. I think I become more like Dorothy every day, which is kind of scary.

I rarely wear blazers, but I need these in my life. And perhaps a Golden Girls tee too.

Awesome top! On a completely unrelated note, I am watching the BBC documentary, A History of Britain right now. Some background research in preparation for my next session!:)

Bonnie said...

I can totally see you being a "Law and Order" and "Golden Girls" fan. And I mean that as a compliment. Because I heart your face off.

Stay golden- classic- only you could pull off a tee like that with style! Oh camping- can't wait to hear about it (I must admit to being a camping snob- unless there's a log cabin/hotel, no can do!) I love your nails!!!!!

Only you could rock that t-shirt!! Love your nails too. You are such a fun girl. xo

Ellie said...

I love your photos so much. You take them with a timer? Anyway, to be completely honest(and I'm sure so many fashion fans would hate me for saying this) but you didn't miss much in NYC. It was definitely more fun last year!
