A wrinkle(s) in time

Bloglovin’ // Facebook // Twitter

I should probably be embarrassed that my shirt is wrinkled (sorry Mom!) and my hair is a mess.

But I’m not. This is my blog and I choose to show the real me and sometimes, this is the real me. We all have those days that we need to throw our unwashed hair up and grab the nearest clean, albeit wrinkely, shirt.

Do you want to know what is actually embarrassing?

Being caught singing, nay, sanging, in the car on the way to work this morning. Not once, but twice, on my short fifteen minute drive. Did you know that you cannot sound good unless your face matches the pain felt in the lyrics? It’s true.

I don’t embarrass easily, but when I am belting it out while simultaneously trying to get the stray eye crustys out, I might have felt a little embarrassment. Enough to stop and pretend I was coughing instead. Because hacking up a lung while trying not to poke my eye out as I drive is better than enjoying a song and singing while trying not to poke my eye out as I drive.

The second time? I just went with it.

Do you embarrass easily?

Once I received a text from my best friend while I was driving; “What are you listening to?” She drove past me on the free way while I was in the middle of belting out, you guessed it, the Backstreet Boys.

So if you ever pass me while driving, I am not coughing, having a seizure, or talking into a blue tooth. Just pretending that I am in a music video.

Why do my boots look so dirty?

I suppose it matched my thrown together look that day.

Stalker alert! I got caught reading cookbooks.

Edit to add: This video of Alyssa and I sanging on a road trip. I pretty much do this alone in the car.

  1. I love the double denim in this outfit. The back of your top is really cool! I really like how casual and cool this outfit is. And don’t worry, we all get caught singing in our cars. And of course your face has to match the mood of the song! Otherwise it can’t sound as good!

  2. Go girl! No need to apologize and I ALWAYS get caught singing and dancing in the car! I have large speakers left over from my teenage days, so usually people are alarmed when they pull up next to me and I am singing every word to Regulate by Warren G at an alarming volume. I love your top!

    love this look! I’ve been guilty of trying to spray myself with downey’s wrinkle release spray as I’m rushing out the door…it never works.

    That top is really cute– I love the back! I always get caught while singing in the car lol Usually I just keep going, most likely you’ll never see them again anyway lol

  6. It depends on the situation whether I get embarassed. If I get caught COMPLETELY offguard (like the singing thing) then yea I tend to get embarassed but usually it’s because of the surprise. If I’m intentionally being weird (or wearing a wrinkled shirt and NGAF) then I don’t really care. I like to try to embarass my husband a lot, just to watch him squirm…

    Oh I definitely embarrass easily. I’m one of those people who will become a big cherry tomato when embarrassed, and then i get even more embarrassed by how red i am lol.
    And i know what you mean about everyday not being a glamorous fashion day. I think it makes your blog more real and it’s easier for people to relate to.

    What a great look! You’ve done the denim-on-denim look quite nicely. You can barely notice the wrinkles 😉 And I too am infamous for singing in my car and getting the stink eye from other drivers. Just can’t help myself! 🙂

    I love that you are wrinkly and disheveled and grungy. (: For the record, I wore the same shirt (and posted two outfits) two days in a row. As for singing in the car… yeah. I’m pretty much the star of the most epic music video ever when I’m rocking out.

  16. Love your blouse, and great photos:) Follow you now! Would be great if you follow us back:)

    in response to your comment on my blog about being frugal and cheap…. so am I. I’m crazy for designer clothes (I pretend to collect clothing like art or stamps) but I cant afford the new stuff so I stalk my local thrift stores constantly for gems. Oh and your outfit today… kind of amazing, I actually love the wrinkled texture of the top!

  20. I actually love the hair and I think the little wrinkles in the top give this whole look that lived-in, slightly rumpled look that makes it even more chic!
