Remember this invitation? Well, this is the outfit from that invitation. If you can’t tell that, then please don’t take this the wrong way, but you really need to get your eyes checked. It’s pretty blatant. I’m glad we can be honest with each other like that. 

Currently, as you read this, I’m on a plane heading to the Big Apple itself. That’s how you know I’m from out of town, I still call New York City the Big Apple. You better believe I’m going to Mary Tyler Moore it up in Times Square and throw my hat up in the air while forcing Bryan to sing “You’re gonna make it after all.” You only live once.  

So before this post went to weird places, I was going to remind you guys about the Gap event in Lincoln Square tomorrow night! Are you going because I sure am. Remember to RSVP like a good guest and be sure to bring your tickets to the event. If you are coming, get ready for all 5’9″ of awkwardness tomorrow night. (Gap doesn’t yet know about this awkwardness. Shhh, it will be a surprise.)

  2. I love NYC, I hope you are having (or had) a fabulous NYC adventure. I love this outfit, the color of the pants is absolutely gorgeous. I really need to snag a pair of pink pants.

  3. Finally a post of this outfit! You looked great in the invitation and I am a little sad I won’t be able to go to New York to meet you at this event, but have fun and take lots of photos! (which I am sure you were going to do anyway! lol)

  4. Wish I lived in NYC. But, I must say, I think we’re soul sisters. I’m 5’9″ of awkwardness too. It’s cool. Really. We should start a club.

  5. I am SO going to re-create this look! Perfect outfit for when spring isn’t quite here.

  8. hahaha! You are too funny. The moment I saw this outfit I just thought, this is the perfect twist to such a classic look! You nailed it… to the stinkin floor! 

  9. I’m so bummed I’m not in NYC for all tha fashion amazingness going on this week. AND even more bummed to be missing your Gap event! I hope you have a fabulous trip – I went with my husband for the first time a year ago and felt like I was in a movie the entire time (and acted as such). 🙂

  10. I love the outfits, I love the hair (wish I could figure out that sock bun magic) I love the contests but YOUR POSTS are the reason I check this site every day. I read this from Poland (we are six hours ahead) and often when I wake up and do my morning catch up on news I open your blog praying you wrote something to make the beginning of the day a little better. But I don’t think you are that committed yet to write posts for me at 2am. That’s cool, I will check anyway…
    oh and you let me know when You have events like that in Poland so I can put that down in my agenda… 🙂

  11. Come to Minneapolis sometime and you can Mary Tyler Moore it up with MTM herself… in statue form. http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/5735

  12. I hate to nitpick, because I’m such a fan of your blog, but the Mary Tyler Moore show takes place in Minneapolis.  As a native, I gotta rep what we’ve got.  But please, come on up here and do an event – we’d love to have you cheesy theme song and all.

    1. I’ve gotta second Kerry on the MTM correction!  Minneapolis would love you though, Kendi.  Bring up some of that warm southern air and you’ll have people lined up around the block.  😉

  13. Have so much fun! Try to go to Eataly while you are there. You won’t regret it.

  14. Ha! Wish I was going to be in NYC to meet you. Love those pants, I have had my eye on them :). Have so much fun at NYFW!!

  15. So cute!  I’m always hesitant to wear sparkly tops outside of the holiday season, but you make me want to try it!  =)

  27. Are you 5’9? me too! & I kinda hate it :-(.  You always wear heels! how do you get the confidence to wear heels as a taller girl??? I see all your outfits and I always think “damn, that wouldn’t look as cute with flats….she must be short.”

  28. Come to Minneapolis sometime and you can Mary Tyler Moore it up with MTM herself… in statue form. http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/5735

  43. The line “Mary Tyler Moore it up” just brought a huge smile to my face and now I can’t get that song out of my head. 🙂 I hope your visit to NYC is magical – I always manage to have incredible adventures whenever I make it into town.
