[Fashion] Don't hand me no lines and keep your hands to yourself

It's Friday. And I think that calls for a little something casual. Warning: If you're a hardcore Baltimore Ravens or Cleveland Browns fan, you might want to stop here. I would hate to lose a reader over this outfit. :)

2 things real fast: 1 - after looking at these pics, the outfit probably could have used a belt. next time, folks, next time. 2 - I'm a DIE HARD Steelers fan. I'm not going to talk about it in this post, because I'm sure it will become a big topic of conversation once football season starts, but know that I am not one of those gals who sports a team's shirt because her significant other roots for them or someone gifted it to her. I love the Steelers. If we're being frank, when I met the hubs he was a HUGE college football fan (going to Bama will do that to ya), but he didn't really have a pro team he followed. I turned him. BIG time. That's how much I love the Stillers. If hubs didn't love them too, this whole relationship never would have worked out. (I may or may not be kidding in that last statement). Anyway, I digress.

I wore this outfit to go to a class at Home Depot. Yes, you read that right - a class at Home Depot. I love a good t-shirt and jeans outfit, but I don't wear them that often. Generally I can be found in this combo when I'm running errands or going to watch sports at a pub.

The fan in our living room is remote controlled and recently stopped working. After a bungled visit from an electrician, we decided to do it ourselves. Normally, hubs would volunteer to do this kind of work at the house, but he's currently getting his MBA and his class this summer is Saturday morning - which is when the fan class was at the HD. (Home Depot, in case that wasn't clear). So, I volunteered to go.


I didn't want to walk into Home Depot in anything that would make me look as though I were a poor, incapable female. (Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying clothes say that, I'm saying that other people make those judgments if you, say, walk into the HD in 5 inch stilettos. I mean, people doing home repairs generally don't wear spikes, so they might think you have no clue about home repair simply on looking at your shoes. Not cool, but it happens). This was my attempt at looking like I semi-might belong at a HD. But maybe the blingy jewelry was too much?

Needless to say, I got the instruction I needed and BAM - THIS GAL RIGHT HERE fixed our fan. That included wiring the light (aka playing with electric wires) and putting the whole thing back together. MR. Fix-It? Think again. It's MRS. Fix-It to you.

I kid, I kid. Don't ask me to fix anything else. It took me 2.5 hours and a lot of googling. I don't want to do it again. Hubs, this stuff is all yours.

And I snapped this gem of a picture while shooting these outfit posts. It made me laugh so I thought you all should laugh at me, too. I'm sure I'm not the only style blogger this happens to.


  1. i'm a DIE HARD Cleveland Browns fan. and that's okay. i still lurve you even though you love the Stillers. (which is hilarious that that's how you typed it out because that's always how i type it out) Yins Stillers fans crazy. :)

    still being [molly]

    1. And even though you're a Browns fan, I still lurve you too. I also lurve that you are familiar with the dialect - Stillers, you know jaggoff? Or stabby? Or Arn City? I think I need to do a post on Pittsburghese...haha

  2. I'm so impressed that you fixed it by yourself! I'm sure I would have gotten electrocuted or something. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm your newest follower. Keep in touch! :)
