A Little Behind


 
Dress - Winners, Blazer - Zara,  Crossbody Bag - Vintage Gucci
Boots - Seychelles (again I know, pretty much all I wear in the Fall)

I tend to behind on awards...mostly because I stress about who to pass them onto, especially because I don't like leaving people out. Please bear with me.

Nubia at Nubia's Nonsense was so sweet to pass this onto me. Is it weird that I don't know what it stands for? Maybe she thinks my blog is as refreshing as lemonade? Or worth $0.50 a pop? Or that I look like I just sucked a lemon? Whatevs. It's awful cute. Especially since I always wanted to set up a Lemonade Stand when I was little but never did do it. Thank you, Nubia! 
Now passing onto some refreshing blogs: BonBon Rose, Fancy Pants, Oofa Luffa Le, vitaMinn Style and Wendy Brandes Jewelry.

Ashley at Breakfast at Saks was so kind to pass this onto me...a month ago. Eek! Sorry and thank you! I'm supposed to list 10 things about me, but maybe 5 quirky things will do:
1. I won't wear any open-toe shoes unless my toesies have been painted. Ever.
2. When walking next to someone, I always need to walk on the left side. If I'm on the right, it completely throws off my equilibrium. Though if someone is at my left and my right, I'll be fine.
3. I always wake up hungry. Even from a 20-minute nap. Which leads me to believe I burn a lot of calories when I sleep. Who needs the gym?
4. I can't eat salads with mayo in them like egg salad, potato salad, etc. I can however, eat a tuna sandwhich. It has mayo, I know.
5. I am a clean freak and always hated dirt and/or getting dirty as a child. My mom once caught me violently scratching at my arm, which was torn up and pretty much bleeding. She was so concerned (probably figured I'd lost it at the tender age of 3) she aked "What are you doing???" With tears in my eyes, I told her I was trying to scrub the dirt on my arm but couldn't get it off. I pointed at the "dirty spot", which she had pointed out to me the night before.
It was a mole. Of course my mom knew it was a mole. She thought she was being *funny*. Yeah, I still hold that one over her head.
Now passing onto some cuties: Janetteria, Made You Blush, Ocean Dreams, Sour Cherry and While We're Waiting

 
Have a great week, everyone!

  5. Congrats for the awards beautiful!!
    Your outfit is amazing! At first I thought it was a maxi skirt and not a dress so I was like "I've GOT to buy a maxi skirt"!!!!
    I hope you're having a great day!

  8. Beautiful dress!
    I love reading things about you and adore your sense of humour. Just like you I would never EVER wear anything open-toe if my toenails are bare... It makes me feel sooooooo uncomfortable! :)

  15. i really need to start shopping at zara. seems like all the cool peeps shop there...

    #2 cracks me up. OCD at it's finest. guess we all have our little quirks...
    #4 i probably wouldn't eat those salads too but i've realized that all the best dips and sauces have mayo as an ingredient. mayo solo though...bleh!

    hope you had a good weekend doll!

  16. oh gosh, i think i'm the worst at awards.. cus i stress about who to pass it on to as well so what i do is just link people to show that i got it and appreciate it! haha! ;P is that cheating?

  28. We always appreciate awards!! I just have to get my booty in gear and post them!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Of course... leave it to you to brighten my day. You are so sweet and I just love this cutie award! I also wanted to thank you for your little comment the other day, asking how the interview went. I replied to the comment, but I'm pretty much a techy-idiot, so I have no idea if my reply actually made it through cyberspace to you. The fact you checked in and actually cared how things went meant the world to me. I know I have never met you for real, but I truly feel blessed to have you in my life... even if for now it is just an online virtual life.

  35. Purdy purdy, Ela!! Yeesh I hate mayo, and I even eat my tuna plain. I just can't take mayo. Except for tuna salad from this one place in Virginia (it has mayo in it) I really like that. But other than that one place... tuna= no way

    Happy Monday!

  37. LMAO your are just too much my dear. But your right about one thing I do find your blog rather refreshing!

    I sort of thought the same thing when the award was passed down to me like hmmmmm a lemonade stand? haha but its awesome I've seen a lot of great bloggers with it. Congrats on all your awards I'm sure you make countless people laugh everyday!

    xoxo Nubia

    p.s you look lovely in that photo above, nice pattern

  38. ohmigod, i also dont wear open toe shoes unless my toes are painted!! actually, i dont wear open toe shoes except for flip flops. i haaaaaaattte toes. it takes one damn goodlooking peeptoe style heel to convince me otherwise!

  39. I love the blazer and congratulations on the award.

  40. congrats on your awards and to the people who you gave them to .. love how you softened the boho look of this dress by adding the tailored blazer

  42. Congrats!

    xo*

  43. Oooh, gorgeous maxi dress! And I'm the same way about open-toed shoes and nail polish. I just don't like the bare-toed look at all. In fact, I just tend to always have my toes painted, because i don't like my feet without....haha... is that weird?

    Lovely maxi dress by the way! That outfit is perfect for the Fall! And congrats on winning all the awards! Hope you had a great weekend and a lovely Monday/Tuesday :)

  44. The print of your dress looks sooo lovely! And I know what you mean, I always need a snack after even the littlest of naps. I swear I must fidget in my sleep or something. I am a total clean freak too. My brother sometimes picks books off my shelf and puts them on the floor just to see me rush immediately and put them back in their right place. Hope you're having a wonderful day :)

  45. Congratulations on your awards! I love your outfit here. I don't know what it is about me but I tend to stay away from long dresses but you look so amazing! I may have to reconsider.... :)

  46. Ela, thanks for the award love! I just actually posted it at my blog, record speed for me! :) You look lovely in your picture and I am a clean freak too. That makes two of us! Oh, and I always am concerned about my toes in open toe shoes. I try to stay away from them as well if my toes aren't too pretty at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Lovely maxi dress! This is a great way to continue wearing them thru fall. =)

    LOL on your top quirky list. I too have a thing for painted toes when wearing peep-toes. And I'm the same way on the waking up hungry! Lately, I noticed that I've been unknowingly starving myself at night and waking up with a bad headache! I thought the headache was just from trying to dream about what to blog next!

    Super thanks on the award! It's such a cute one!

  48. Ela, i absolutely adore this outfit. Lovely!!!!

  50. Love your dress! I know I stress about awards too because I feel like no one really cares what makes me "cool, different etc" but I like your list and I love Tuna too! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  51. You look so beautiful and the ultimate version of boho chic (I know that has been way over-used, but I honestly think you wore this the right way- chic, but with a hint of bohemian ;).
    I always thought Cath was a neat-freak, but I don't think she every tried to scrub off a mole- hehe!

  52. great ensemble...love the structured jacket with the flowy dress!
