Almost Like A Real Grownup.

Today I am color-coordinated from my hairclips down to my shoes. How did I achieve such a feat? Surely, you say, you do not have in your own wardrobe (if it could even be called such) a coral dress, hairclips and shoes, acquired by your own hand! It is true. My "wardrobe" is very lacking in things that meet these 3 requirements: 
1. It fits.
2. It is not threadbare or super faded
3. It is remotely my style.


 Luckily for me, my mom stopped overnight on her way back from market in Atlanta. Even luckier is the shopping trip she and Linda took to H&M making me a recipient of said coral pieces, layered over jeans and a layering T from Linda.  It's enough to almost make me feel like a real grownup.


 Fiona wanted in on the SP action.

Note the bulging vein in my forehead. When I was a teenager my oldest friend Erin pointed it out to me and told me she was jealous of it. Ever since then I have held an attitude of deserved superiority over all my fellow non-bulgy vein underlings. 
Admire me. 
I also have a super bulgy vein in my neck that is kind of crazy when I get upset or intense (rarely) that was brought to my attention as a youth by my brother. I think he was (understandably) jealous. So, I am what they call a double-threat.



 Sigh. 
Almost like a real grownup. 
With 2 prominently bulging veins in my face and neck.
I am so lucky.

Hang on. I'm having a hard time getting past the spittoon label! What am I forgetting?

Love these photos. Love this post.

How have I never noticed your bulging veins? I'm so jealous.

Jessie, you're so pretty.

Not sure I see the bulging veins, so they must just be veins! You look so pretty, hope you went out to show the world how much that color suits you!

Coral is such a great color for you. Seriously. You look beautiful! I love the shoes...a good pair of flats are my favorite thing!

And I AM jealous of the bulging veins, hello Julia Roberts?!

I fear I'm never going to me a real grown-up.

You are so pretty! I can't believe how big Fiona is! She is a doll. Your wardrobe sounds like mine! Perhaps I should go shopping...

I love your hair! You look great in these photos--coral is good on you. I have a bulging vein in my forehead, too, but knew it was something to be desired. Huh.

I love this post and these photos. Oh to be the recipient of such an outfit!

The vein commentary cracks me up :)

And screw cute and pretty- you are a hottie Jessie!

PS I love everything about this post. I forgot to comment when you first posted, but I'm commenting now. Love you lots.

hahaha, I still love the bulging vein :) I think it reminded me of Julia Roberts bulging forehead vein. Back then I loved her. She's changed now and I can't stand her, but I still like the vein :)
