You want to know how much of a Valentine's Day person I am? Not only did it not dawn on me to wear red {or pink as that's the color I have in my remix}, but I didn't even realize it was Valentine's Day until someone at work asked me why I wasn't wearing red. Before you starting calling me the Grinch of Valentine’s, let me just say I didn’t intentionally wear blue to spite all of you lovely dovey V-Day people. It’s just this particular day is so off my radar, it didn’t even register. Now if you’re looking for a blue valentine, then I am girl.


Speaking of Blue Valentine....did you that's the name of a movie? A Ryan Gosling movie? If you follow me on twitter {@lizurso} then you know I am quite obsessed with finding Ry Ry while he is in town filming a movie. Apparently Saturday we were at the same establishment and I didn't even know! Then yesterday I passed the filming crew on the way to work {yes, I drove super slow with my windows down and sunglasses on in super stalker fashion}. Looks like I'm getting warmer. You know like that kids game, hot or cold? If things keep going this way, I predict I will actually see him in the flesh by Friday. Fingers crossed!

Pin It!

  1. If you see Ryan in the flesh you HAVE to take a picture with him and share the hotness with all of your readers!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for a RG sighting in your near future!

  3. You would have been a breath of fresh air yesterday. I wore a pink pencil skirt, thinking I would look festive, and every woman in my office was wearing a red sweater. (Although, they looked like Christmas). haha Good luck finding Gosling-ow ow!

  7. If you see him, you had better get a pic. Creepers always get pics. Speaking of creepers, search the new Lonely Island song "Creep". You can do the creep!

    I really love your outfits, by the way. I love the combinations you put together. It makes me realize how badly I need a gingham shirt too.

  8. I love your blue look! And who says you have to wear red or pink on Valentine's anyway? Plus that blue scarf is such a pretty color!

    PS I tagged you in a 'seven things about yourself' post! http://daniellesotherblog.blogspot.com/2011/02/seven-things.html

  11. I hope, I hope, I hope that you actually do run into Ryan Gosling in the flesh - it has to be kismet with all these near miss experiences :)

    I love your Blue Valentine outfit! I really love the pairing of the gingham with the tweed. And I adore that scarf!! :)

  12. I am so jealous that you are in such close proximity to Ryan Gosling! I hope you run into him and tell us all about it :)
    I just bought that shirt the other day and can't wait to style it! I am taking notes over here. Lovely post as always!

  15. So Ryan and I are the exact same age (to the day!) - are you jealous?? I might heart him a little bit, too. Just might. Still waiting for Blue Valentine to come to a theatre near me, but I'll take your stalker stories + cute blue outfit instead for now.

  18. I forget it was Vday too until about halfway through the day when someone decided to enlighten me. Oops, and I have a boyfriend too, but we don't really bother celebrating. And honestly, if Ryan Gosling was anywhere in the vicinity of my town, I was be stalking him too! I mean, it's the Gostler!!

  19. I didn't wear red either, not on the actual day at least. I'm glad you didn't, because I love this look--the blue, the gray and the black look great together!

  22. Maybe dressing for holidays is against my nature....come to think of it, I never do. lol.

  23. I highly recommend the movie! I'll be honest it's kind of depressing, but it's phenomenal.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have! And you're absolutely right. Amazing, but totally sad.

  25. Hopefully I will get a photo....and hopefully he won't think I'm being too creepy :)

  30. Thanks Angie {on both accounts!}

  31. Um I am kinda jealous! Anything connections to Ryan are something a long for. As for the actual movie, Blue Valentine, it finally came to my town this month. Maybe it will make it your anonymous location sooner rather than later!

  32. Your too cute. I love the blue. Don't feel bad about not wearing red. I'm married and I didn't wear red or pink either. Valentines Day to me is just another day!

    I agree, love Ryan Gosling! But Blue Valentine was not my kind of movie... Gross and depressing. Totally unrelatable...Just my opinion though :)

    Glad to have found your blog!

  36. Love the shirt and scarf combination! I wore green btw one Valentine's out of the same problem you had - I just forgot and somebody pointed it out later during the day!
    Oh, love Ryan as well, actually watched the Notebook during my movie night at Valentine's!!

  37. I actually wore blue on Valetine's day too. We were debating seeing that movie but we passed for that particular date and saw a dumb Adam Sandler movie instead...there is still time before the Oscars. It's cool that you almost saw Ry-Guy. Sooo close!

  38. My love and I accidentally went and saw Blue Valentine on VDay.....not exactly a lovey movie! BUT we saw it at a total indie theater where you sit on couches and you can buy wine by the glass, so it measured out as a good date anyway!
