Peer Pressure

Hope you don’t mind, I’m posting another 7 Things {new here? my first list is here}. I was a little reluctant to post another list random tidbits about myself when the lovely Ramsey {warning: she’s adorable} tagged me, but then Kendi tagged me too and said it was mandatory. If there is one sure fire why to get me to do something, it is a bit of peer pressure. I’m going to keep with Kendi’s theme of embarrassing past stories. Let’s get on with it, shall we?

1. When I was a freshman in high school, I was obsessed with a particular senior boy because I thought he resembled Justin Timberlake. Really the only resemblance was that they both wore baby blue and used peroxide to bleach their hair. I’m fairly certain that said senior boy is balding now. Wonder if he blames the peroxide?

2. When I was 6 all I wanted was a snap bracelet, but my mom {the ever cautious and wise} refused to buy me one on the basis that they were like weapons for kids. Being the stubborn child I was, I wouldn’t take no for an answer and resorted to stealing bracelets from other kids in my class. I kept a collection in my lunch box until that fateful today when the snap bracelet bandit {me} was apprehended by her teacher.

3. Speaking of elementary school, I really loved my Guess sweatshirt. So much so that I wore in my 3rd grade picture and then again in my 4th grade picture the next year.

Repeat


4. My mom is a bit of Star Trek fanatic {a trekkie if you will} so most of my Friday nights as a kid involved staying up late to the wee hour of 9 to watch Star Trek: The Next Generation with Bren. I used to make my mom repeat all of the actors’ names during the opening credits with me. I got so good that I convinced myself I was able to read.

5. My sister, Annie is almost 5 years younger than me. Being the older sister it was my responsibility to do the teasing. My favorite was to say she was named after my parents dog {also named Annie}. It wasn’t until I was about 10 that it dawned on me that I kinda was named after the dog in my own way. My full name? Elizabeth Ann.

6. Due to an unfortunate incident with Sun-In on a summer vacation, my hair was chopped to my ears {see the 3rd and 4th grade pictures above}.

7. My first concert ever? *NSYNC {and I say that with the utmost pride}. In fact, I went to about 5 or 6 * NSYNC {not including the 2 after JT went solo} concerts over the years. I will be the first in line if there is ever a reunion tour.


Now it's time to spread the peer pressure.Kinsey, Kate, Hello! Monkeyface, JoAnn, Kelsey & Linda.

  3. I really like this outfit. I work in an office too, so I'm always trying to mix fun patterns and colors into my wardrobe to keep it fresh. This outfit is great! I would have never thought of mixing subtle leopard print with floral. I will have to try that!

  7. OH no, I can never resist peer pressure ;)

    Hellz yeah, I was all about the snap bracelets and I loved my pink Guess sweatshirt, too! And LA Gear sneakers. And Don't Worry Be Happy t-shirt. I hope I'm not dating myself too much here (embarassing admission #1: I'm old)!

  8. Isn't that funny about many of the "hot" guys from HIgh School? I have been so disapointed coming across their FB profiles.

    Guess was the ish back in the 90's, throw your overalls and "Blossom' hat on and you've got yourself an outfit!

  11. An *NSYNC reunion is definitely a reason to celebrate! Mark me down.

  12. Glad I could pressure you to writing about embarrasing stories! I'm sure yours will be hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh did I wear some overalls {or bibs as my mom called them}. Those were the days.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Your answers were hysterical! That was a really fun read. Also, I love the outfit. I'm officially kicking myself for not getting that skirt from J. Crew when I had the chance!

    Embarrassing stories are such fun! Thanks for being brave enough to share.

    I would without a doubt be right behind you for an *NSYNC reunion tour!

  16. I'm excited to see that you are also a fan of the long cardigan, I have a few and have to stop myself from just rotating them day-to-day. I love how you mixed the colours in this outfit; I never knew that mustard and grey were made for each other!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ack. That's me tagged down there? I'll work on it. Maybe I can do that instead of listening to my professor tonight.
    Love your embarrassing list. It will be hard to match that!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love your seven things! Haha. I love learning more about bloggers this way.

    ReplyDelete
  19. OMG I love that you loved that Guess sweatshirt so much you wore it for 2 class pics. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. i have been eying that skirt for so long! it looks great on everyone. but, kind of expensive!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Just discovered your blog. I love your sense of style! You look professional and polished but also FUN! You're one of the few who I've seen pull off this look so well. I too work in an office ("non-profit chic") and strive to find this balance. I shut down my blog some time ago, but my username is Calliope1099 in the Flickr group "Working Office" if you ever want to say hello :-)

  22. Well thank you! Side note, I think this skirt is still available online {and a few colors are on sale!}!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Looks like a lot of us are rooting for a reunion. Glad I am not the only one.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well thank you! I have an affinity for long cardigans. It's hard to resist.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Funny right? Clearly I was not opposed to re-wearing.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I waited for a promotional sale to get mine...30% made the price more bearable for me.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I had to laugh at NSYNC and will confess my first concert was NKOTB, I was 5 :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh my gosh, Liz. I LOVE THIS OUTFIT. the skirt and the blouse are so pretty! The color combo is perfect.

    I swear I had that same Guess sweatshirt. I can't remember what mine looked like exactly because both my sister and I both had matching white Guess sweatshirts (but slightly different flowers or embellishments) and I loved mine SO MUCH. I remember it was the perfect weight, and really soft inside. MY FAVE!

    And I had a TON of slap bracelets. I'm glad I kept them away from you. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Weren't Guess sweatshirts the coolest? I was also partial to Espirit ones too.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm kinda jealous that NKOTB was your first concert. It would have been mine to had my parents let their kindergartner go to concerts.

    ReplyDelete
  31. AHHHHH the J.Crew skirt!!! I want it so much.
    And hahahahaha your stories are hilarious. My go-to sweatshirt was Gap and I had one from Legoland that was pretty sweet, too. And when I was in elementary school the cool bracelets were those stretchy metal charm bracelet things....my mom finally got one after they went out of style. And I definitely love #4 on your list, for obvious reasons =]

  32. I'm pretty sure I had that same sweatshirt, only in dark blue!

  33. I love the 7 Things list... maybe I should do one, just to show embarrassed solidarity. I was always a Backstreet Boys girl but N*Sync was great, too!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love that outfit. I actually ordered that top from anthro today, can't wait to get it !

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm seriously in love with that J.Crew skirt. Looks great on you!!
