So I have a tendency to spew random thoughts at times, and today is no exception…

– I spent a good five minutes trying to think of a title for this post and all I could come up with is ‘Casual Cool.’  So lame.  I apologize… it’s better than what I was going to write:  ‘I can’t think of a catchy title for this post.’

– Don’t you love that when it’s your birthday month, you get gift cards or free small gifts from stores?  A free trio of lip glosses?  Why, yes, thank you Sephora.

– I paid full price for my UO necklace (above)  in-store and it’s on sale online.  Be aware that you should check online before going to UO.  Some of their stuff is marked down online and still full price in store.  I was thinking of buying a faux leather jacket in-store but passed because of the price, and it’s totally cheaper online.  Solid.

– ‘Solid’ has sometimes replaced ‘Sweet’ in my vocab.  Likewise I used to say ‘Tasty’ when I liked something, but then started to say ‘Toasty.’

– I have bad luck when I wear long necklaces… or maybe it’s just because I’m clumsy.  I have a tendency to somehow manage to either get my arm or leg caught in a long necklace and break it. This happened yesterday when I was trying on a pair of shorts in a store and my leg somehow got caught in my necklace as I was hunched over. Effin A.

– My twinny hates when I say Effin.  I definitely just googled ‘Effin A’ and apparently I’ve been using it wrong.  It’s actually an emphatic yes that originated from the Navy.  The “A” comes from the old British term “Aye” meaning yes.  Eh,  I still like using it negatively.

– Song of the moment is Soulja Boy’s ‘Turn My Swag On’.

– Why can’t all guys’ hair be as pretty as Robert Pattinson’s?

– Just bought suspenders from UO… now I want a belt harness.

– Below is the most PG image I found re: Hump Day that didn’t involve animal crackers, hamsters, a laundromat dryer, etc.  I’m sure you’re picking up what I’m putting down.

    Hi sweet Becs,
    how are you, love? Have you seen that you received an award!!!? 😉 Okay, that being said: The jumpsuit is gorgeous! I love H&M so much at the moment….
    Terrific outfit at all – and that necklace is such a beauty! Great choices! I first thought that you are wearing your blue Topshop booties – but hey, there are some new heavenly blue ankle booties! They’re veeeery cute and matching the outfit perfectly!
    much love as always

  7. June 3, 2009 at 11:25 am

    Haha! Hilarious post, Becs! And thank you, thank you for the outfit inspiration. I bought that damn Alexander McQueen jumpsuit at target (very similar to your H&M one) and have only managed to wear it once in 3 months. You look effin awesome (and i mean that the british way 😉

  8. June 3, 2009 at 12:33 pm

    Toasty & Solid outfit! 😛

    I think Casual Cool as title is OK! bc your outfit is casual & cool, so nothing wrong with it!

    I hate when buying something & couple days later it’s on sale…so not fair!


  9. June 3, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    Hi there-such a fabulous outfit, you look gorgeous my dear!

  10. June 3, 2009 at 12:56 pm

    You are so stunning and I love your outfit, great necklace!
    And thank you for your sweet comment, 7 holes in your ears is a lot too, I like it! It gets kind of addicting, right ;)?

  11. June 3, 2009 at 2:04 pm

    soo true about UO! Didn’t really figure that out until I’d over-spent way more than I care to know, but better late than never.

    And you are the cutest ever! Could jumpsuits be easier?

  12. June 3, 2009 at 8:21 pm

  34. June 5, 2009 at 12:48 am

    Oh Becs, i so want ur vest, boots n d necklaces! U r just simply gorgeous! ❤

  35. June 5, 2009 at 4:12 am

    Great outfit and love the shoes and vest you chose to go with it. Really enjoyed reading your random thoughts as well.. you know the French use ‘solid’ (ok, it’s actually ‘solide” but basically the same) all the time. And it has the same meaning. If you ever saw “Along came Polly” with Aniston and Stiller, Hank Azaria’s character (surf instructor) keeps saying it all the time. Haha.. ok, now I’m rambling. Have a lovely weekend!

  36. June 5, 2009 at 10:19 am

    hi becs! i just posted an elizabeth&james giveaway on my blog that i hope you enter and hopefully you can spread the word:)
