It Was a Case of True Love

I had something to say, but can't remember what it was seeing as I just made the grave mistake of watching 'Virgin Diaries' on TLC and fear my mind has been wiped clean.  If there is a possibility of being scarred for life simply from watching a tv show I've got third degree scars.  Did any of you happen to catch the two who got married and had never kissed before? (see here)  Uh, can you say maul?  I was mid-air with a fork of pan seared green beans and can't even recall eating them.  There were some other awkward scenarios to behold, but suddenly they've escaped my mind.

Did I do anything this weekend?  Laundry, couch, worked on testing gluten-free donut recipes and laughed my head off on Friday night over dinner with friends.  At some point I made a pitstop at Whole Foods where I had a stranger tsk tsk me for purchasing green beans that weren't organic.  Excuse me lady, but do I know you?  I'm paying $4.99/lb for green beans and counting out exactly 14 so as not to break the bank.  Do ya mind?  It was on this very excursion that I seized the moment to try out my new Current/Elliott Rollers for the first time.  The love story continues.  No big shocker there.  I've been raving about the brand since the very beginning.  I guess this makes me a one denim brand loving woman (you know like a one woman man)--except nothing like the peeps who got married on Virgin Diaries.  *washes eyes out with bleach*

Effective immediately:  Channeling the 80's love for fisherman knits.

All those late nights watching Grease and Saturday Night Fever are manifesting before 
our eyes.  Next up:  big afro wig!  (wishes and dreams)

Love the jeans, the sweater & those shoes! People are pains... buy your own damn organic green beans Lady! What nerve, huh? If she was that concerned then she should have offered to purchase them for you. xo

Ooh I LOVE the second shot of you!
Pssh some people get righteous over the silliest things!
They are green beans, not carbon offset credits!

I've never seen the show and I'm hopelessly intrigued. I'm sure it'll have the same hold on me as Toddlers & Tiaras. Ridiculous. And awesome.

Danielle (elleinadspir) said...

In love with this outfit. One I would wear in a heartbeat. There are so many Shows out there that confuse and disturb me. Isaw the preview for that one and was left shaking my head.

Dancing Branflake said...

You are so awesome! I want to see how those gluten free donuts turned out. Thanks for trying- I bet they were delicious.

Oh that kiss. That couple. That kiss. Sigh. I mean, I was a virgin when I got married but not kissing and then kissing LIKE THAT is crazy.

Josie said...

Yes. Yes. Yes. Everything about this, my dear, is one BIG YES. I love that sweater (so glad you got it) and those jeans are seriously fabulous, Carrie. I'm in love. And on another note, gluten-free donut recipe tasting? Sounds like quite the tasty experiment.

Amber said...

loving your shoes. I recorded The Virgin Diaries and hope to watch it tonight. I saw the promos where the two are kissing and laughed my butt off.

la petite coquine said...

First, Virgin Diaries=best/worst thing to gawk at. It's like a car wreck inside your TV!

Two, step off, Whole Foods cop.

Three, HOLY MOTHER OF SWEATER JEANS WEDGES.

Johanna said...

You know I've never owned a pair of these jeans. People rave about them. I shoulda added that to the xmas list.

Thanks for your note by the way, that was super sweet!

Annie said...

Gluten-free donuts?! I hope there is a post coming soon telling us more :)
This outfit is too cute. Love the wedges and sweater! xo

Catita said...

Katie said...

I got distracted by your hair. It looks amazing! Is it the argan oil? I need that stuff to show up at my door ASAP.

TheChambrayCountess said...

OK, I want to address the adorable outfit and the crazy produce prices, but I got distracted when I thought of that first kiss! It was like a carnivorous bird feeding frenzy! And I only saw the previews! It looks like I made the right choice to not watch the whole show or Santa would have to put a therapist under the tree for me :)

Kavery said...

Chunky knits - anytime! And one like yours is priceless

this free bird said...

@chambraycountess...ROARING LAUGHING!! You have adequately captured my thoughts and then some. hysterical

meghan said...

I adore this whole look. Like, love love it. I bought a pair of oxford wedges and was having the hardest time figuring out what pants to wear with them Friday. I ended up wearing leggings and a long top, but this look is perfect and it makes me want to go get a pair of these jeans or pants that roll up like this. And I love this sweater. I didn't know what I thought of it when you first posted about it a little while ago, but I just think this outfit is the greatest. I want those shoes now too...

Grace - Stripes and Sequins said...

Those wedges = I die. Gorgeous outfit :)

Ashley, Lions Lace Lattes said...

I want those jeans, sweater and shoes! Love this so much.

I haven't heard of "Virgin Diaries" but now I feel like I have to see this! haha.

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

that second picture is pure money! You look stunning and those wedges are a little piece of heaven right there. love!

ruthy ann said...

i saw that clip you are talking about on Ellen...i laughed my brains out. yikes. I'd hate to know what happened in the bedroom that evening!

Jess said...

Actually never heard of Virgin Diaries but I know what you mean by watching trash tv - I'm watching Gossip Girl as we speak....*cringe*

Tamara Nicole said...

Hey hun, your hair is looking amazing! :-) And you should tsk tsk that lady right back, seriously?! So funny.

Hope all is well! Missed your blog!

Outfit aside your hair looks beautiful! Why must you torture me...I watched that promo, never to be the same again. Now I'll be pretending not to look on TLC to see if the show is being repeated.

jamie said...

Oh I love everything about this outfit!! It's perfect for this time of year now that the weather is finally reflecting the month!
OMG I was scrolling down the guide on the tv the other day and I saw the Virgin Diaries, paused and then saw that Kourtney and Kim Take New York was on and quickly moved on...sounds like I made the right choice! LOL!!!

Emily said...

I had a similar experience at Whole Foods too! Except I forgot to bring my own bags with me... I totally missed this new show on TLC but am now simultaneously horrified and curious haha!

Halie said...

Simple and stunning.

Elle Sees said...

I love this outfit. And yes, I'm still scarred from that show. I swear I kissed better than that when I was 13. Enter to win 5 shirts from StyleMint!

Marie a la Mode said...

LOVE your fisherman's sweater! Paired with those jeans, this outfit is perfection Carrie!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Ummm, your outfit!!! Can I have everything you are wearing?? But probably in bigger sizes.. because you are tiny...

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

Oh no, I don't think I need another crazy show/bad TV addiction from TLC! I'll already never get those Big Fat Gypsy Wedding hours back!

Kelly said...

i love how simple yet chic your outfit is! the shoes finished it off!

Mrs. Julius said...

i love your outfit! esp. the jeans!

btw, saw a preview of Virgin Diaries on Ellen today and thought it was a joke. lol

LyddieGal said...

You make chic casual look so easy and effortless. Love those booties. Normally I'm up in arms over ripped jeans, but not this time.

Chic on the Cheap

Claire Kiefer said...

I'm amazed at how you look so incredible everywhere you go--even to the grocery store. By contrast, did you see the picture I tweeted last night? My roommate and I watched the Sons of Anarchy season finale, and it drove us to the liquor store. In our jammies (tucked into boots). HOT.

Love those shoes! And everything else, including your gorgeous, dark hair. Swoon.

Carlina said...

Fisherman knit is beyond. Wedge brogues are beyond. Luxe silky hair is beyond. Always so fab, even in a knit and jeans!

I feel your pain... my roommates and I watched the ill-fated show as well. We all literally screamed out loud, and I don't think any of us will ever be the same.

Kristin W said...

Good freaking grief...those shoes! I'm swooning beyond belief!
