To Warmer Days Ahead

Well girls today is the beginning of the White Denim in Winter Challenge and it would only figure that I'm seriously under the weather with a cold.  I spent Friday night trying to convince myself that I didn't have a sore throat, only to wake up on the couch Saturday morning barely able to swallow.  Tall tales to self continued well into the evening where reality set in:  someone else would be singing Maneater at a local hang out while I sipped hot tea through a straw.

There is no justice in this wicked world.

I am so looking forward to seeing how everyone styled their whites today.  I'll join in on Thursday as the whitest thing I have to offer right now is my dastardly pale skin.  Here's who's up:


Everyone posts at different times so you might need to visit more than once, but I've already seen Lyddie's and she sent me into tears.  Gorgeous!  Speaking of tears does anyone else cry when they're sick?  I spent Saturday night shivering and weeping away to The Holiday.  Oh Jude Law.  Oh Kate Winslet.  Oh romance.  

On that note I leave you with a glimpse into today's outing with the Chef.  Long live boyfriends who don't give a rip about the Super Bowl and running around with plastic cheese on their head while the neighbors get ripped out on pot, screaming and hollering their heads off, using baseball terminology to describe football.  True story.

Pinkberry
Loyalty goes to frozen yogurt places that don't allow children
to dig their hands into the toppings.
Blood Orange & Original Swirl
Toppings: Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry & Pralines
Feed a cold; starve a fever.
Outfit Details:  Tucker for Target - Butterfly & Purple Print Dresses, Siwy Hannah Denim, 
Foley & Corinna Mid-City Tote, Dulce Calf Hair Clogs, Melinda Maria - Ring
Target-Sunnies, Necklace - Africa
Channeling Mrs. Roper will always cheer up the most dismal of sniffles.
As will a glance at Bieber.
You know you like him. Bay-bee, Bay-bee, Bay-bee OOOH!
Here's to sunnier, warmer days ahead.
It's official:  I despise winter.

See you back tomorrow for Round Two of the Whites.  Hope you had a great weekend!

Curl up on the couch with more movies, magazines, and fro-yo! Death to the sore throat! (And winter. Blah. I hate it more than usual this year.)

this free bird said...

It's the worst. I'm gonna go cry in the corner and go to bed.

Katie said...

Ok we commented on each others posts at the same time again - it would creep me out but its kind of awesome. ANYWAY.
1) The spacing looks find on my computer. Any big problems with the computer yet? I think I had about 1094320 meltdowns with mine, NOT because anything went wrong, technology just freaks me out. Oy.
2) Idk what we got last week - snow, slush, ice MESS that was gone in a day. Apparently something else is coming Wednesday. I dont know anymore. I scream at the weather forecast. Did I mention I hate winter? Hate.

Josie said...

This sounds like the greatest Superbowl Sunday every, Carrie. You've found a serious prize in the Chef, my dear. And I need you to stop getting sick so I can stop worrying about you! Seriously, doll, take care of yourself.

Marcela said...

Ha!! Frozen yoghurt!! There you go, reason for your sore throat! *sighs* You should take care of you babe!
No, I don´t cry when sick. I mostly sleep. Or I just act like I´m crying to get bf to make me a hot chocolate.. "If you love me, you will"! Haha

I´m totally in love with those shoes! Are they comfortable?

Hope you get better soon!

Debby said...

I can't believe you are still sick, Carrie! Did you go the Doctors? Maybe you need an antibiotic, Hun. Oh, Pinkberry... Logan went crazy for it when we were in Cali! Feel better.... love The Holiday. xo

SabinePsynopsis said...

White in winter (proper white, not off-white or beige)... That is a challenge! I do hope you get better soon, Carrie. Sore throat is really no fun. xo

MerciBlahBlah said...

First things first - I luh-huh-UVVVE your Tucker dresses togeva. Like, inappropriately love. Secondly, sorry you're under the weatha. Thirdly - I am SO down with my white in winter challenge - check it out mamacita. Finally? Props INDEEEEED to Chef and The Hubs who don't care about the superbowl (or sports in general). I mean, football to The Hubs is soccer, ammiright? I didn't even know who was playing until yesterday.

Feel better soon - hugs and kisses!

RosaLovesDC said...

Oh feel better soon and hopefully that sore throat will heal soon.
So happy the Chef is not into Football, you are a lucky girl.
BTW, my husband is the chef in our household. I am technically challenged in the kitchen. LOL

Fashion Meets Food said...

Danielle (elleinadspir) said...

And now I'm craving frozen yogurt! Feel better soon!

Googlover/keishua said...

those shoes are amazing. Love them. want them. However, I would probably fall and kill myself in them. LOL.

Alleen said...

You look amazing even when you're sick...not fair!!! Love the outfit and I hope you get better soon! Take advantage and enjoy more frozen yogurt and relaxing days! Happy Monday! xoxo

Closet Fashionista said...

I hope you feel better! Colds are the worst. Well, actually, the flu is worse, but you know, colds are pretty bad too. I already had two of them this year...I'm so over winter, too.

Genius idea for mixing the two dresses together. I love them both!

Also, love @ the frozen yogurt. There's this frozen yogurt place in the Mall of America (which is about 3 hours from where I live...good thing or I'd be getting frozen yogurt all the time) and it's seriously delicious. Props to you for getting healthy fruit toppings on yours. That's what my boyfriend does, while I pile on the Oreo crumbles and M&M's. I'm awesome like that.

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

Why do you look so amazing even when you are under the weather?! My nose gets as red as Rudolph's and there's not a whole lot of hair brushing going on. But enough about that....can we just talk about those shoes?! The color, the studs, the...everything. In love!

Hope you feel better lady! xo

Nikki said...

Feel Better Carrie!!! You still look adorable and fashionable, even when you're sick!!!

the chef captures such unique angles. Love the last shot and the one of your super cool O ring digging into the pinkberry!!

Agentsuperstar said...

Love the mix of patters! I am trying to get over my pattern mixing phobia, you are awesome inspiration. :)

jeanette from everton terrace said...

Keep resting. I was in bed for the past 6 days with some flu and sinus/ear infections and yes, my eyes were watering all the time.
Love your outfit!

Isabel said...

you look great and id really like to dig into that frozen yogurt!

ruthy ann said...

sick again? no bueno!

looking forward to seeing how you lovely ladies incorporate white into the wardrobe! (white t-shirts is about as daring as I get!)

Dancing Branflake said...

I'm so sorry you're sick! Urgh... that must be so frustrating! Pinkberry- how I miss it! Love me some blood orange!

LyddieGal said...

Awww, I hope you are able to kick this cold for good soon! And I do find myself emotionally vulnerable at time of illness, aka, weeping during 27 Dresses (that bitchy sister did cut up the dead mom's wedding dress after all...)

I'm glad to see white jeans week is off to smashing start with some really strong looks from the other ladies!

Chic on the Cheap

Marissa said...

That pinkberry shot just made me hungry! I'm so sorry you're feeling under the weather. Have I already told you to take Zicam? I swear that company should be paying me for all the people I turn onto their product. It's just a heavy does of zinc, but it does wonders for a cold!

My Heart Blogged said...

I love the print of the dress. Sorry you are feeling sick. I hope you feel better soon.

Claire Kiefer said...

I love your layered Tucker. I have a confession to make: I've never worn the pink butterfly top I bought. Eeeek! I love the colors so much (bright!) but I'm struggling a little with the shape of it. We'll see . . . I need to have a date with that top in front of my mirror and try it a bunch of different ways.

But I also love winter. Although I have to say that it's warmer in the bay than it was down in southern California this weekend!

I also love your clogs. And pinkberry. And all frozen yogurt (though this weekend I skipped pinkberry in favor of Sprinkles).

Hope you feel better--so sorry you're STILL sick! My goodness. I hope you're at least having movie marathons and lots of tea & honey (and ice cream).

Bonnie said...

I always cry when I am sick. The latest bout with cramps (the one time a month when I HATE being a female -- why can't we just cut our uteruses out during that week????) left me in tears for 3 of the 4 days. Fucking lame if you ask me. And don't even get me started on crying when I have a cold. It makes it worse because you snot your nose up, and then you cry more because you have more snot. It's a horrible cycle.

I really do love the Beibs!

I think your Mrs. Ropert-esqie outfit is retro fab.

A man who doesn't watch the super bowl? I didn't know there was such a species lol.

Uggghhh I HATE STONERS with a passion.

TheChambrayCountess said...

Love your outfit. Layering prints rocks!

Also, I just realized, you aren't sick. You have Bieber Fever!!!

Valerie said...

I love the layering of all your fabulous Tucker pieces! And those shoes! I'm sorry you've been sick, Carrie. I hope you're feeling better today. Get some rest and eat some chocolate. :) I'm excited to post my winter white tomorrow!

Rachel from Love a la Mode said...

I could literally live inside a pinkberry and never crave another food again. I always get original with pomegranite seeds and raspberries :)
Bisous,

Your shoes are RAD! I hope you feel better soon! Gosh, you've been getting sick a lot. Maybe you need to get your tonsils out??

-Dr. Marie ; )

Oh and I'm hosting a Tibi dress giveaway on my blog if you're interested in entering!

Annie said...

awww Carrie, I hope you're feeling better today! That yogurt looks like just what the doctor ordered :) You cracked me up with the Mrs. Roper reference. oh how I love The Holiday - what a perfect movie to have watched.
This winter white challenge is really fun! I saw Nicole & Taylor's, but have to check out the other girls now!
Keep teaing it up! xo

briannelee said...

Oh no! Hope you feel better! Love your shoes!

Amber Blue Bird said...

Feel better soon. i know what a bummer being sick is

OneCraftyFox said...

Hey gorgeous! You look so beautiful, your outfit is so flowy. Sorry to hear you are not well, let the chef take good care of you. So awesome that he does not wear to cheese on his head, I saw a dude like that last night. I mean, what's up with that? What does it even *mean*?!

Now girlie, I do have one thing to say that you are not going to like. While you are prancing about in your hot little heels and light layers, I am bundled up every morning in a hat, scarf, two layers of mittens (well, chunky mitts over thin gloves), a downe-filled jacket and flat soled sensible boots that go up over my knees. So right now, you're not getting any "winter weather sympathy" from me, lol. And since you're Canadian, you know exactly what I'm talkin' about! ;)

Feel better soon, sweetie!!

Taylor said...

Carrie, I love your shoes here. I hope you feel better!

Kristin said...

There are places that let kids dig their hands into toppings? Ewwwwww! Kick arse shoes!

Daniela said...

great idea about the challenge. I'm up and posted :)

Chas said...

Pretty dress! Those clogs rock!

Tamara Nicole said...

Hope you're feeling beteer Carrie! And I saw your challenge on another blog, how fun! :-) P.S. lovin the butterflies!

Danielle said...

You live in Cali. How can you even complain about winter? ;)

I miss PINKBERRY!

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

i don't know how you do it, but you look fabulous, even when not feeling well. :)

Kendall said...

Oh my God, you are so right about Pinkberry!!! You're a woman after my own heart.

Jess said...

Feel better Carrie!! Love your Tucker butterflies!

la petite coquine said...

These whites-how divine! Hope you're feeling better darling-when are you going to kick this thing?!

Mo Pie, Please said...

You look so great even with a cold! I really want frozen yogurt now, thanks :)

Feel better soon!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

ooo, that white denim thing is awesome!!! I wanna do it!!!! I'm excited to look at what people do, white denim can rock in winter for sure but you gotta do it right and not make it look like you don't realize it's summer, seriously- exciting to see! Also, hahah about your boyfriend not caring about the game - but is it okay if I think your neighbors day sounds kinda fun :) Great outfit of course, you do Pinkberry proud as I think their little shops are so cute, I think it's just the toppings :)

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I loved seeing everyone's look in white! It is inspiring me to go get some white denim!
I am loving your outfit too. That dress is so pretty.
And now I am wanting Pinkberry....like right now!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Sigh we have Red mango here but not pinkberry. I want that blood orange/original swirl!

I started looking at some of the white denim posts - very fun!
