I've Got a Brand New Pair of Roller Skates

OK, this post has nothing to do with that 70's song by Melanie Safka, but who hasn't seen and instantly fell in love with that new HP printer commercial with the happy baby?! I can't get "Brand New Key" out of my head, and now the BF is in fear of me wanting a real baby bump because I adore the expressions on that commercial baby - no worries, BF, I am perfectly happy with just my food baby.

I did have the song rolling through my head this morning though as I was getting dressed though - this knit top is probably more appropriate for a lazy Sunday lounging but happy baby song inspired me to be super-cas and wear it for TGIF!



Top: UO Truly Madly Deeply Owl pullover
Skirt: Banana Republic herringbone knife pleat (worn here before)
Tights: Anne Klein
Shoes: Aldo Currie (worn here and here before - similar-ish online here)
Necklace: Anthropologie Grandma's Treasure Trove (worn here and here before)

Sorry, folks, no Other People's Blogs post today (and probably for a while - I'm so sorry!) as this week has completely gotten away from me and I am way behind on my blog trolling. I may be in and out of blogee land for the next two weeks as well since I'm heading off to Asia tomorrow for some back-to-back biz trips, argh! I feel so behind on everything! And how is a gal to pack when almost half her suitcase is already spoken for with work-related things?!

  1. I LOVE owls and that top is just adorable. What a fun outfit for Friday! I've got that roller skate song stuck in my head too after seeing the commercial every time I turn on the TV. ;-)

    Safe travels!

    I haven't seen that HP commercial. Well, duh, im in Australia!I will see if it's on Youtube. Goodness, your owl top is toooooo adorable! it also looks super comfy.
    Good luck with your Asia business trip. You will need to find items that can "multitask".
    Cheers

  12. I saw that commercial for the first time last night- it's so rediculous you can't help but laugh watching it!! :) I saw the cutest owl necklace window shopping yesterday- would owl-on-owl be overload? I've worn peacock earrings with a peacock shirt, but then I don't claim to be fashionable, just weird.

  25. Thanks for your comments on the owl top, ladies! I feel like a big kid in it - and there's nothing wrong with that, is there? In fact, I top this top so cute and comfy that I washed it last night and now am wearing it AGAIN for my flight!

    Jen - I think I gave up packing half-way through. My mind kind of went "I don't care anymore" so it'll be interesting to see what I'm "stuck" with when I get there!

    Closet Crisis - I totally did! I got a big one that I checked and a smaller rolley that I'm dragging around. When they get together - watch out people on the escalator!

    Amy - I'm hearded to Singapore and then Hainan for some trade show/conference fun! ;o)

    LT - I totally wished I had an owl necklace to wear with my top! And I can't get the HP commercial song out of my head now! But at least I find it bright and cheery, puts me in a better mood instantly!

    Liz - isn't it funny with this blog thing that we all do sort of know each other even though we don't?

    Ashley - it is unfortunate but I believe I am all too familiar with the foody baby. We get along really well.

    Vivian - thanks for finding me!

  26. Elle Sees - I can't recommend Asia enough - Hong Kong is one of my fave cities with Singapore a close second (such good food!). You need to go when you have the time - though when in you're in your 14th hour of a 20 hour flight, you get a case of the "where the heck am I going and why?!"

  27. Lisa!!! I feel like I haven't visited in sooooo long. I'm currently on a small little getaway from Maui, just island hopped to Oahu for the weekend. :) I hope you can squeeze some fun into your Asia trip. :) and hope you're doing well too. I love that owl sweater on you... you manage to make a juvenile print look super chic. :D

    hugs!
    xx Love & Aloha
