Cool like that

Alissa and I go way back, by which I of course mean two years, when Alissa started blogging. She is one of those people who I felt an instant connection with, and if we didn't live 1,500 miles apart we would hang out all time.

I always look forward to reading Alissa's posts; she is completely sincere and more often than not, manages to completely crack me up, like the time she did a face plant on to concrete to save a cake she'd baked (pretty darn impressive). Moreover, I love her style and want raid her closet because sartorially we are on the exact same page. I know this because we are wearing the same outfit, and we didn't even plan it.

If you've never said hi to Alissa, please do, I know you will adore her.

  10. So I'm pretty emotional reading everything right now but I am a little misty eyed. I hate that distance gets in the way of us. It's so annoying. It should be like 10 miles that gets in the way, not 10000000005 or something that it feels like!

  13. Isn't it crazy how you can feel that kind of connection to someone you've never actually physically met before? I am constantly amazed by that. Toni from The Love Hanger and I always seem to be wearing the same things on the same days somehow. She is in Oregon, I'm in Colorado and we've never met. Weird.

  15. I recently ran across Alissa's blog and I loved her blog instantly. She seems like a ball of happiness and her style is simple and fun. I love this that you're wearing too! I may have to go get that striped tunic!

  17. Isn't it wonderful how blogging can lead us to those particular kindred spirits who we would never otherwise meet? It's funny that you say that you and Alissa are right on the same page sartorially because when I saw this outfit pop up in my bloglovin feed, the first thing I thought was that it looked very similar to something I had once seen her wear. Clearly, great minds think alike - and I think I need to get on the bandwagon, too, because striped shirts and denim shorts were just meant to be together.

  32. AAHH! I heard about you two twinning it up and this is so neaaat! I love Alissa. I discovered her through your blog and she is just so VERY EXCITING and such a passionate lady and yeah. Lady swooning.

    But! On to you! I love the vertical stripes here. I think vertical stripes are so much more interesting than horizontal ones for some reason, though I don't know why. Lookin' snazzy, Miss Lydia!~
