cupcake picnic

So, obviously these pictures/adventure are a bit back-logged, because I still have hair (now I'm living a short haired lifestyle). Back-logged is actually a great way to describe in general how I feel today! I've been working hard all week, and I'm not supposed to say what I was doing, but if you're realllly curious, it's the same thing I described in this post. Now enough secrets! 
t-shirt- c/o Carina, skirt- Gap Factory, flats- American Eagle (super duper old)
On the day that I wore this, I could not stop thinking "cupcake picnic". My skirt obviously looks like a picnic blanket, and this t-shirt is a hand-me-down from my sister Carina from Magnolia Bakery in NYC. Which I've never even been to, btw, but that won't stop me from wearing the t-shirt.
In retrospect, I don't really think this is the most "stylish" or "blogworthy" outfit, but it is quintessentially me. I find myself wearing a variation of this more often that not! Sometimes bloggers talk about their "uniform" and while I wish I could say "White button-down! Pearl earrings! Totes!" I would have to say "Quirky graphic tee. Skirt or dress underneath. Flats I've had for a long time."
And on this beautiful day, I worked in the morning, and just got to hang in the evening. I think I mentioned that Hunter and I have been watching The O.C. in its' entirety, anyway we finished Season One and desperately needed to find Season Two ASAP! We headed to McKay's, a gigantic used book/movie/cd store (they recently moved to a new location that I hadn't even been to yet), which is where I found this perfect pink wall. I'm not sure if you can tell, but my shirt is pink too.
Hunter was looking for a copy of Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer, and I was looking for The O.C. (on behalf of both of us)! I was so jazzed (this explains the crazy eyes) because we both found exactly what we were looking for; Hunter's book was approx. $2 and The O.C. was $10.95. WINNING! I love used bookstores.

I think on the way home we got Little Caesar's pizza and breadsticks and it just really was a lovely evening.

I actually have a few sets of pictures from before I cut my hair, which I am a little shocked by because I hardly ever take outfit pictures in advance. Anyway, they're still to come! Thank you for coming by. I'm off to finish my "everything" cookie and probably watch some O.C.

Thanks to Andi for the heads-up, I'm now linked up with Bri at Work Clothes, I Suppose for a showcase of "Dressed Up Tees"!

I don't think you need to worry about "blogworthy." I just like seeing outfits that look good on you and this one does. Who doesn't love a gingham skirt?

Andi said...

I love this t-shirt! It's super cute with the gingham skirt and totally blog-worthy! I'm thinking about doing theme weeks every so often and have definitely thought about doing a graphic tee week. Pretty sure I'm going to do stripes in October, but then maybe tees in November? I'm not sure. In the meantime, did you see that Bri from Work Clothes, I suppose has a linkup today for "dressed up tees"? This would totally qualify, so you should check it out!

Thanks Kristian, you're sweet!

Priya said...

Yes to both theme ideas! And I will totally check that out, thanks Andi!

You look SO cute in this outfit Priya! If this is your "uniform" this is pretty awesome. My uniform is basically a pair of colored jeans and white top, hahaha. I'm glad to hear you had such a fun evening watching the O.C. and eating yummy things :)
