oh, man...

i believe it must be spring fever.

i've nothing to say. {well, less than usual.} and i feel hella compelled to just...do. seriously, all i want to post is this photo.




why? couldn't tell you. can't even be bothered to fabricate a reason. like, hey...thinking of buying a hat. do you like this one? or grae wears a striped shirt that looks exactly like this every day. that's a problem for me. or even a doesn't she look like she'd be a little ball of fun?

because i know my head's too large for a cap like that. i know grae loves the striped shirt. i also realize that the last thing i need in my life is another. ball. of. fun.

wait. one thing i am interested in asking you is how you feel about short pants. like these. as for me, i'm usually anti-short pants in addition to being anti-stripe. how about you?

and while we're sort of discussing my head, i'm trying to squeeze a hair appointment into a very packed weekend. would it be confusing for me to give my stylist this photo?




you just thought to yourself not at all, karey! i completely understand the hairchop and the hood. completely. you're not losing your mind or any of the little sense you had, like, last week. oh! and be sure you {you'll probably want to cover your mouth and suppress ridiculing laughter right about now.} post a photo of how it all plays out! am i right? oh, man...

there's really no way to redeem this post, is there? i've re-read it an embarrassing amount of times, and i'm still shaking my head at my dumb. let's just leave it at that, shall we? ok, then. see you next week. unless you've removed me from your daily reads, that is. xoxo.

girl with a cap via le vestiaire de clé, which i stumbled upon via breathe design. and i first saw kate on woolgathering & miscellany, right before my daily google of kate lanphear's hair.

good luck with the hair. I'm for stripes in general, but not on pants. And I'm for short pants (ankle length) if they are fitted and j crew like.

Sherry said...

i've had this kind of day allllll week long. the gorgeous sun has zapped what little creative juices i have. i've got nuttin' this week. absolutely nuttin'. my audience is far smaller than yours though. no one called me or emailed me when i missed 2 posts this week :( btw, love the hat. love kate's hair.

c.bean said...

I like the look of stripes... but I won't wear them. same goes for short pants... they always look fabulous on someone else but make me feel chopped when what I want is to feel long and lean. know what I mean?

so I say take the photo in... because I get it. just don't blame me if things go horribly wrong.

c.bean said...

of course, they won't go horribly wrong!

karey m. said...

ooh, kelly...j. crew anything. yes.

sherry...only mary ruffle and my sister mailed me, probably. i'm sure i can arrange for the both of them to mail you, too!

and c. bean...i LOVE your panicked second comment! "not that anything WILL go wrong!" cracks me up...

mrs. darling said...

i love stripes on other people. i feel like a circus freak when i wear them and i try to go out of my way to not feel like a circus freak.

i totally get the picture hairstyle. once i told my stylist to cut my hair like tinkerbell. she totally got it. the good stylists are magic like that.

and that spring fever? oh boy, did i ever catch it. work is annoying me today. i have more important things to do...like go on walks and eat frozen yogurt.

please sir said...

I am ready for spring too! Walks and frozen yogurt sounds mighty good right now. Also, right after I posted the chalkboard piano I thought of you! I said to myself, "I bet Karey would like this." Really...I did! I'm glad you enjoyed :)

c.bean said...

I'm still laughing... one of those days, you know. I think this early spring fever has me all addled. well, that's the excuse I'm going with anyway. have a lovely weekend!

karey m. said...

mrs. darling...tinkerbell?! love that. it's exactly how i described esme's haircut to the stylist!

diana...i did love that piano. think of the possibilities, you know?

and c.bean...me, too. i love panic!

pen.ny said...

yes, yes! give that photo to your hair stylist (if you get the appointment) i'd love to be a fly on the wall to see that reaction!

no dumb. always great. if anything you've reminded me i, too, need my hair done.

off daily reads? who would think of such a thing. don't put nasty thoughts in people's heads on a friday karey!

karey m. said...

lauren...last time, i took in two pictures of kate. one just of her wrists. cuh-razy! good that i tip well.

paula said...

love stripes, shorts pants, well we just won't go there, and that coat... where can I get one? haha!

Have fun at your appointment. I am in desperate need.

karey m. said...

paula! say it! no short pants, right? you're a no short pants girl...i thought i was alone on that one. xo

Shannon said...

The model is totally rocking the short pant, as for me I would look like a confused convict, although I do love a stripe!
Enjoy your choppy weekend!

Shayna said...

did you really say "hella"?! (and yes! give that photo to your stylist, so hot.)

Brandi said...

go for it -- give your stylist that photograph. because let's face it: if you hate it, it will grow back. and in the meantime, you could buy and wear the hat if you dislike your new hairdo.
have a wonderful relaxing weekend amid the chaos. (and i love every post. we all have days like this, believe me. i've had several even over the last few weeks.)

karey m. said...

shannon...it IS the model, isn't it. i think i'll just stick with my no short pants rule, then, you little convict.

shayna...yes. i did write hella. i think it's one of the prettiest words to write and it rolls off the tongue so prettily. plus, deep down, i want to pretend i'm from the bay area. we could be neighbors.

brandi. i don't think i could afford that - is it shearling? - cape. i know this because KATE LANPHEAR IS WEARING IT DURING FASHION WEEK! yes, i'm bitter. xo

Design Mom said...

I'm fitting in a hair appointment too. I wish it was an exciting appointment where I could show photos to my stylist. But really, I'm just dyeing the sad, sad gray.

This post is fantastic.

karey m. said...

it's not sad, gabby! not next to that awesome belly! loved the ear piercing post. broke my heart a little! xo

Richie Designs said...

love short pants - but I'd say no to stripes. jailbird and all that jazz.

plus me with stripes? people would ask how long it took me to get my ass in the door it would look that large ;)

susan said so said...

short pants can be so comfortable if you live in a sweltering locale like, well, all of the southern US, and much of the rest of the world, but they look ridiculous on me. i'm already short, and trousers that chop me mid-calf do me no favors. but when it's boiling i wear them anyway.

as for these particular pants, miss stripy-bottom is adorable, but that whole hanging crotch look just scrapes my nerves.

please PLEASE take the photo to your hairchop date.

xox,
susan

jules @ The Diversion Project said...

OK, so i just googled Kate Lanphear's hair - so now i can say with 100% confidence, go for it. How saucy does she look??!! V.cool.

While you're at it, go the colour too - really go the whole hog, might help with the spring fever. You'll either come out feeling fierce and ready to take on the world, OR you could come out feeling totally pissed off with me for even suggesting it - again, more writing material :) win win situation heh?

Vintage Simple said...

You know, French women can pull off pretty much any look and always look fabulous. Case in point: they can even wear horizontal stripes along their hips and look effortlessly gorgeous. Must be their genes. Not a French gene in sight for me, unfortunately. Le sigh.

xo,

jules @ The Diversion Project said...

hey karey,

check out 'Kate - Paris' over at the sart - totally made me think of you.

What on EARTH are you apologizing for my lovely friend, you? This is an awesome post, because it is you...at this moment and I love it all. Hey, I know what you mean about the hair....I am not mocking you at all. Truly! :)
xoxo
Melis

Mrs.French said...

i do not think this post needs to be salvaged at all and i giggle at the thought of you showing this photo to your hair stylist...and those pants!!! good gawd! they really are a "yes!" for you and because i can't help myself, for me too. we can be pants twins (i really am a bit loopy today too, i knew there was a reason we are friends.). xo t
