Weak Sauce McGee

[30 for 30: Outfit 23]
Giraffe Shirt: Charlotte Russe
Jacket: Macy's
Jeans: AG
Boots: Steve Madden
Scarf: Gift from India

Seattle got hit with some snow yesterday, and while I heard it wasn't too bad in the city, it was really bad for us who live across the lake on the Eastside. I packed up P and all our things and drove over to my parents' house just as the snow started falling on Wednesday night, and by then, I was already having trouble making it up their steep hill. When Thursday morning came around, it was practically impossible to get out of the house... it was only about 6 inches or so, but my parents deemed it too dangerous to venture outside (yes, I'm treated like a baby when I go home but I secretly love it). It was quite nice, having my dad cook me a hot breakfast, lunch and dinner, and having someone be able to watch P while I worked from home.

The downside to staying home was that I spent the entire day in pajamas, so no outfit picture was to be taken. I was bummed about being another day behind on the 30 for 30 challenge, but Tara suggested that I just double up on outfit picture taking today. Genius, really, but that would require me changing outfits at work, and although I doubt anyone at the office would notice, I didn't really want to carry a change of clothes and shoes on the bus. 

I am seriously tempted to just take 8 outfit pictures tomorrow so I can be done with the challenge and go shopping. I really am liking this remixing thing, and I'm not tired of it yet, but I just really really really want to go shopping. I didn't realize I would miss it this much, despite the couple times I cheated already and bought stuff at Target. I'm weak sauce.

Today's outfit was almost identical to this one. I realized that I included way too many black items in my 30. I thought they would be versatile, but they're really not. I need more color. Also, I really wanted to wear different shoes, but I was stomping around on icy roads today, and these are my only semi-snow-friendly shoes that I included.

As I was taking my pictures today (behind the EMP), this old dude walked by and offered to take a photo for me. He asked if I was visiting from out of town, and I said yes. He asked where I was visiting from, and it seriously took me 5 seconds to think of a random city (I said Boston). I'm such a bad liar.

So much random rambling today, so I'll just leave you with this. The wind was seriously annoying me today. And it was COLD.

  7. Yay, the giraffe top! I could spy those little big animals even if you hadn't listed them. Such a cute top!

    I laughed when I woke up Thurs morn. We got just a dusting. All the anticipation for some white polka dots on my lawn. I still stayed home because Augie is sick. I still dressed up because I had to take him to the doc's. Good times!

    I feel ya on the no shopping, that was the hardest part of it for me, too. Especially in the home stretch! Hang in there.

  10. I'm so tired of remixing. I packed 30 for 30 items for our weekend getaway to The Willows in Woodinville and I'm going to wear as many outfits as possible in these 3 days. Hee hee!

    Now off to change for our walk down to the Red Hook Brewery. . .

  11. I love that you lied to the guy about being a tourist...that's totally something I would do when put on the spot like that :)

    Obviously, I'm a big fan of the double-up...I really thought about doing that every day this weekend. A little 30 in 27 action or something...I feel a mini shopping spree in my future.

    This Life, Redefined…stop by and say hi!

  13. I love the windy hair outtakes - so supermodel-esque.

    And I'm kinda liking this snow in Seattle thing, because it gets me videos of P saying "nose". :)
