What Makes You The Worst Person

I'm a little stressed right now. Like....a lot stressed right now. So in an effort to relieve some of this, I've decided to write out some of the reasons you might be the worst person. I also need your ideas for why someone might be the worst. Because we are in this together and together we can get rid of the worst people. 

You are the worst person if:
You tell me that polka dots are for children. You are out of my life. 
You are in an empty coffee shop and you chose to sit and the table that is 10 inches away from me and just watch me work. 
You go to the express lane with 20 produce items. You are the worst. 
You don't pull forward at the pump so I have to then backup and turn my car around to pump gas. 
You comment on how much better I look today than I did yesterday.
You inform me I look tired when I talk about how rested I feel.

You act like the Chipotle menu is brand new every time you walk in.  Get your ridiculous burrito and go. Stop acting like you don't know it's extra for guacamole. 
You don't know the difference between there, their and they're.  
You are the worst if you tell me I shouldn't eat out so much as we are eating lunch at Chipotle. 
You do not support a child's neck while holding it. 
You comment and tell me that froyo is not healthy. NO KIDDING I'M AWARE OF THAT BUT I  WANT MY SUGARY CARBS! Eat  your lettuce and be sad. 
You have an entire conversation on Pinterest. I will NEVER figure that one out. 
You comment on other people's pins about the morality of a top. No. You can go away.

What is on your list of what makes you the worst person? Because I need to know so I can make this thing comprehensive and avoid all of these things!

Search Terms

So this is a weird story guys. Brace yourselves. I felt like this outfit felt familiar when I wore it twice in the past two weeks but I brushed it off. Then as I was sitting here, looking at the images, it dawned on me why it felt so familiar. I have worn this outfit before.  (Yes, I had to reference my own blog archives to figure out what I have worn. Please tell me this is totally normal) Why do I know this? Because this skirt is what gets me the search term "Short skirt in wind" from a LOT of creepers over in France. Yes, the last time I wore this I was talking about how this skirt flew up and exposed my booty to a bunch of people at a convenience store. I was really young and naive (Okay, a year younger but I've totally become wiser in a year.) and didn't realize that sharing embarrassing and funny stories were indexed by search engines. I didn't know how to check for my search terms then so I never knew my wind up my skirt story was such a success in France.

So for a while I totally thought that the reason this post was popular was because I have killer print mixing skills and am funny and all that. Then I wised up and realized that no, people are pervs and basically just want to see short skirts in the wind. Specifically French ones. 

So what are the weirdest terms that have caused people to find your blog? I know one person who had "large boobs in white shirt" be a term. "Peanut butter addiction" over at Design Eat Repeat has happened but we all know that makes sense.

If It Makes You Feel Good Wear It

I've never been one that has been known for her practicality. I have to actually point out when I am wearing practical shoes for the lake, moving, etc. instead of heels and some other such perfectly cute footwear. So, when the boyfriends mom shipped me this pretty tulle dress and I saw that it was another reason to prance around in tulle I was delighted. Now one might say that at the age of 23 one should probably stop prancing around in a tulle dress. However, that one person that might say that can just leave my life because I have no time for such nonsense. If it makes you feel good, wear it.

I firmly believe that every woman should have a couple of pieces in their wardrobe that are perfectly impractical and an instant mood booster. Now I might have a couple more pieces than the typical woman but maybe I just need more mood boosters? That's the story I am going to stick to. I just need more mood boosters so that's why I have more than one tulle item in my closet.

When You're the Khloe of Your Friends

I'm not exactly tall. I'm not exactly short. I'm pretty much average height. However, I seem to have this knack for making friends who are shorter than I am. More specifically, friends who are short and don't wear heels. So when I showed up to a dinner with my best friend in Kansas City I realized....."I am totally the Khloe of my friends." And not in that good, hot way. 






Shirt: Tulip Fashions 
Pants: Target (similar) (similar)
Shoes: Zara  sold out 
Purse: Kate Spade (similar in black)

Why do I say that? Because my friend is pretty much only 5 ft. tall. I am 5 ft. 4 in. and wore four inch heels, making me 5 ft. 8 in. As the hostess is taking us to our table I realized I was nearly a foot taller than she was. I looked at her and she looked up at me. Yes, she had to look up at me. I then sat down at dinner and felt incredibly self conscious because apparently I am a giant in these heels. Or I need taller friends. But new shoes are easier to get.

Nacho Business

I feel like the shirt I'm wearing, last summer's famous Target shirt, requires me to be going somewhere that involves sand, beaches, some type of sea animal or like...anything involving something super summery. Where am I going in this shirt? To a lunch of nachos. That's right. I'm wearing this to go eat a plate of gigantic, queso-laden, shredded chicken, garlic aioli goodness known as Fuzzy's Taco Shop nachos. Do I have any regrets about eating a gigantic plate that was probably meant for two people? No. Was it worth shaving my legs for? Heck yes. Was it worth the almost walk of shame I had when carrying that empty tray to the counter? It is alllwaayyysss worth it.

So basically I just wrote an entire paragraph about how I will not stand for nacho shaming, you should be able to freely eat your own gargantuan plate of queso-laden goodness and dress up for the occasion.
