Your Personal Style (Outfit 28)

I was watching a Who What Wear podcast yesterday that Bob had found for me and the subject was Real Girls, Real Style. The host was talking to this specific girl and asked her what her personal style is. She replied, “I think my personal style’s sort of quirky and fun with a sort of vintage/tribal note sometimes.”

Vintage/tribal? Seriously? Where do people come up with this stuff? I have never been able to describe my personal style. Maybe it’s because I’m too lame to come up with something as cool as vintage/tribal. One time on What Not To Wear a girl described her style as Futuristic Pin-up. Um, OK. Also, if you’ll notice, when someone is describing their personal style they always say they like to be comfortable. That’s so subjective. Some people are comfortable in 5 inch heels. That doesn’t mean what they’re wearing is really comfortable. I’m putting those people in the same category as cat people who say, “No, my cat is different. It’s like a dog!”

I’d like to call this outfit colorful, angry, optimistic, terrycloth chic.

Cookie Baking Gang

OK, so I broke the 30/30 rules on Friday night for something awesome. Christmas Cookie Night! My sister-in-law is such a great hostess and she invited me to bake Christmas Cookies with a bunch of her friends! It was so great. We laughed and talked and drank sparkling grape juice and baked lots of cookies. I took them to work the next day. They were stinking good too! I heard they were the talk of the store. :)

OK, so I have a secret for you. We made Gooey Butter Cookies. Gooey Butter cake is totally a St. Louis thing, just like toasted ravoili (yum!). You should totally make some Gooey Butter cookies or a gooey butter cake. You will impress everyone you know.

Morning Face (Outfit 26)

We took these pictures in the┬ámorning. I had to weed through them to find ones that didn’t make me look like I had just woken up. (Something Monkeyface never has to deal with! Smart girl.) I never realized that this was an issue before I started taking my pictures everyday. Maybe I’m getting older. Last night I saw 2 gray hairs. Are you kidding me? I’m not even 30! At least Bob has them too. :)
