Small Girl, Big Ideas

'cause blue skies are calling

I don't make friends in a normal way. There isn't a single one of my friends that when asked how I met them, we don't exchange strange looks before we blurt out an answer. I ran up to one girl at a concert and said 'I'm your friend on Myspace' then ran away. Yeah, Myspace - remember that? And yes, we're still friends. My maid of honor is the girlfriend of one of my ex-boyfriends, who we both kind of met through Myspace. I met another friend because I was knitting and we were waiting for a class outside in a hallway and we discussed how we don't like people. My only friend I have made outside of work here in Harrisburg I met on Yelp because she posted about moving to Harrisburg, being my age, and needing to find a cool place to live. And then I messaged her to come get a drink with me because i'm just creepy like that.

And yes, I believe if you live in an 8 hour radius of me, or somewhere in Florida, I totally think we should meet up. This is how I've been since before meeting people on the internet was cool and okay. Heck, I'm still anticipating the day I meet up with my friend Lena, who lives in Portugal.

This outfit is a representation of 'I'm gunna wear sequins to work today because I can' and 'I'm going out on the town tonight' and by the town, I mean with my girl friend from Yelp, and to the only bar I go to. I'm home by like 9pm.

  1. Did you get partially undressed to photograph your accessories on that bench?! I enjoyed these snippets of how you met your friends because I have a few odd stories myself: one friend I met through match.com in the olden days when you could just search for a friend. Two friends I was immediately rude to when we met because I knew already I was going to like them and be friends so I just assumed they would be cool with that? Anyway, you look super cute in your sequin skirt! Hope you have a great weekend

  11. Ha-ha I enjoy hearing how you meet your friends. I like Yelp and reading the bad reviews and checking out who gave the bad review. Sometimes its justified, but other times you see how many bad reviews they have given and you know they just like to complain about everything.


    I love this outfit btw! I want that skirt!

  13. I always thought silver and blue were for Christmas only, but your look is super chic for a regular day. :) Love that story about your meeting friends. I'm not as bold. :D

    You look adorable, I love the pops of blue you added to the outfit! Also, I laughed reading how you make friends. But seriously I dont think its weird at all, the internet makes so many more things normal and acceptable! I met my boyfriend when I was new to Colorado two years ago by going to a bar trivia night through meetup.com! You totally have to utilize yelp and social media sites like that if you're new to an area!
    Anyway, hope you are having a beautiful start to your week!
