Just Call Me Wendy

Oct 11, 2012

Photobucket Photobucket Octoberblog275_zps3724330a Octoberblog282_zps814138b2 I jumped into an elevator today with three very important looking businessmen. They had sharp Don Draper suits on, grey hairs peppered by the temples from spreadsheet stress, and black suitcases wheeling behind them as if they couldn't spare a minute to stop by the hotel. There were Word documents waiting to be opened, people!

After the elevator doors pinged closed, I shifted to the corner and sneakily spied on them from behind my coffee cup, feigning sips. The second they pushed their floor button they whipped out their Blackberries and started scrolling and sending with borderline fervor. It was like they were mesmerized by the tiny screens. I peered closer to see if I could spot glazed over eyes and drool.

But before I could the doors pinged back open and that was that.

Ya'll, I don't think I ever want to be a grown up. Where's Peter Pan when you need him? I can totally replace Wendy *hair flip*.

Dress (worn as skirt)- c/o Sugarlips

  3. Ha! That reminds me of people I see at work sometimes, although I mostly see grumpy doctors that look offended that I even tried to smile at them.

    Does Wendy need a sidekick? Cause this grown up business is NOT working for me...

    LOVE this outfit, I never would have thought to wear denim over a sweater like that but whatdoya know, it works. Loves.

  12. Man, I love this dress. The print is just gorgeous. And I know exactly what you mean. I still have a year and a half of college left and I'm already freaking out about "joining the real world" and "being an adult" and "responsibilities." What are those?

  13. Goodness! You just inspire me to branch out of my safe outfits and try new combos! I just love your style! Also, I think that growing up is overrated...lets dance crazy and stay up late for the rest of forever!
    Much love,
