Tuesday Blahs and Tag!

turtleneck: F21♥ capris: JCPenney ♥ cardi: Express♥ 
kitten heels: Madden♥ belt: thrifted
So, I am kinda feeling under the weather today. My husband got sick last night, and I think I may have caught it from him. GAH! This is just not cool. Also, I know what you're thinking... Laura, why the capris? It's 40 degrees outside! I know, I know. It's still too cold to wear them, but I was frazzled getting dressed this morning and was up late writing a paper. The capris just felt right

I apologize as well for the picture-bare post. I'm saddened by it as well. However, I am totally stoked because the ever stylish Lexie from Ready in Five awarded me the Stylish Blogger Award! Excitement! You should check her out, because she is totally stylin' : )

I gots to share 7 things about myself and then pass the award on to 7 more bloggers. 

1. I am a graduate student in English Literature. My concentration is in Old English Literature which basically means I do a lot of translating. 

2. I am a comic book fan-girl. There, I said it. I started reading when I was little, stopped for a bit, but now it's an explosion of comic book madness. You can say that I live between Wednesdays sometimes. 

3. I grew up in the Philippines, but probably cannot function properly if I were to return. I can speak the language, but my slang is totally out of date. Also, for lack of practice, I am unable to utter one sentence in Filipino that isn't corrupted with either an American accent or English word. 

4. I am a Hello Kitty aficionado. People give me HK stuffs, but I only purchase directly from Sanrio. 

5. I'm not a big chocolate, pastry, or dessert eater. I do, however, lust for fruit. Give me a bucket of any kind of fruit (except durian and apples) and I'll be a happy camper. 

6. Only now am I wearing my natural hair color. I have dyed my hair ever since sophomore year of high school. It's been red, mahogany, purple, pink, and various shades of brown. 

7.  I wear bumpits every once in a while. like today. shhhhhhhhh... it's a secret

And I'm tagging the following seven in no particular order! I know some of you have gotten this award already, but you guys are my style heroes! 

Angga from Reserverade Fashion
Courtney from Sartorial Sidelines
Dee from The Merry Traveller
Emily from Resplendent Tranquility
Jo from Days Go By
Lady Selenite from Le Vaisseau Selenite
Rosie from A Pocketful of Rosie

  6. I'm loving the cardigan! I want... haha.

  7. well-put-together outfit! did you end up finding a new bag?


  8. Oh no! I hope you feel better! Ahhh how do you make those bump-its work?! They always show through my hair, no matter how much I tease!

  9. I've had my capris moments in winter, so I know how it is! Congrats on the award!! :) And I hope that you get better!

  10. thanks for the follow!
    I totally understand the whole Filipino language thingy, I was actually born there, lived there twice but for some reason I cannot speak with out an accent, hehe.

  11. oh man i feel your pain sickness wise! bleh! so foolish! i say where whatever you want to wear when you're sick! plus if it looks this cute, why not?!

  12. I tend to wear articles of clothing that aren't always weather appropriate, too - hehe. Capri's in 40 degree weather isn't all that bad, though. And cozy-ing up in a cardigan helps balance it all out, right? ;)

    Thank you for the tag. I'll work on getting a post up soon.

  13. Oh, and the Sanrio website is a dream. I get so giddy looking through everything. Haha! I can't imagine stepping foot in a actual store.


your comments make my day. thanks! ♥
