The Blues

Since I'm covered in blues... it got me thinking about the blues.  Typically every 45 days or so I need to have a good cry - which I swear is as powerful and necessary as any good cleanse. And even when I have nothing substantial to cry about and (yes, bad hair days and pimples are substantial) - it feels good to release the crap that builds up in everyday life and start fresh.  A good cry helps me to get rid of all the emotional toxins that build up from things like that A-hole driver going under the speed limit in the left lane, the fight I had with my stubborn mom (I may be equally as stubborn), the fact that my favorite lip gloss color has been discontinued, that I got so far behind in Grey's Anatomy I deleted them all from my DVR, and that I spilled all over one of my favorite dresses only to realize it's dry clean only (damn it!) - these are all things that make the agenda for my next big cry... what's on your agenda?

I will forever consider the colour of your blouse to be Heather blue; you shall live in history!

Cry? Why yes I do. Generally it's either frustration or anger/disgust that bring on the waterworks. Although I often cry when I'm happy too.

Catherine said...

Messy house, messy pantry, the fact that I ate the last of the ice cream yesterday... clearly I have big problems. But you're right - a good cry is essential to one's health.

Love your blue outfit! :)

Natalia A said...

I only cry if something bad happens to my loved ones or somebody is rude to me or I watch a sad movie, or good old PMS... Any other occasions just make me angry.
Absolutely love your blouse - I think it's just perfect. Hope you and your mum will find time for a hug and a cup of coffee some time soon! x

Oh I know these days... ;-)

But you look fabulous in blue, this is a gorgeous combination. I love cropped trousers and they go so well with your nude heels!

Oh yes, there is something so cleansing about a good cry! Sometimes I cry about the good old days, about friends I don't see anymore or about silly things like the pork I burned for dinner!

I love this outfit - the shirt is really cute and those pants are so fun!

Michael said...

Those pants are fun! And that top is pretty. On my crying agenda? Nothing right now. And I think that's a plus!

Rachel Lynne said...

LOVE those pants! They are so cute! And the game is telestrations... like telephone but with drawings... SO FUN and FUNNY!

Emma said...

Omg, I've tried about a billion times to explain to my bf why, every couple of months, I need to sit down and watch The Notebook or Moulin Rouge (or whatever) and just bawl my eyes out. He thinks I'm crazy...finally I have proof that I'm not alone!

FitTravelerAJ said...

I think I might have to agree with you...a good cry in necessary sometimes. And if you have an iPad, you can watch old episodes of Grey's Anatomy on the ABC app for free!

Love these pants! And this looks like a model photoshoot!

Blue Dog Belle said...

Ha... I've never really had an agenda for crying, but I may have to start. Good idea!

Alyssa said...

Hello–legs for days! I'm seriously envious, and over these pants too. They're so adorable!

Renae at simple sequins said...

Oh Heather, this post makes me chuckle. That probably not the intent, huh. But, I had a great cry the other night, oh say about 5 days ago. I was washing the dishes and got to thinking deep and the next thing I knew I was bawling over the dishwater. Pretty good place to cry actually. Your top is great and I love your shoes!

Amy {Cupcakes+Couture} said...

Oh My and I thought I was the only one like that.. Yesterday was one of the most horrible day.. started off with spilling curry on my white pants in the morning. Had to change out and scrub the yellow stain out.. and then the day just got worse.. Ah one of those days and yes a good cry is required once in a while. You look lovely and hope it is the happy kind of day again..

I am with you...I need a good cry every once and while. At that point, I will cry about pretty much anything. Sometimes I will cry just looking at my dog. I am a dork...but it's so needed! :)

Those pants look amazing on you!! My crazy little boys, our old house, and the fact that the final episode of Doctor who is Saturday are my reasons to shed a tear!

Love this outfit! And I tend to only cry a lot, sometimes for no apparent reason. It's kind of annoying to deal with, honestly...

Alex Haygood said...

Love those pants! If I'm going to cry anytime soon, it's probably going to be because I'm stuck in a boot due to an ankle injury. Therefore, no more cute shoes and going out anywhere for another month! But lots of relaxation, I suppose :)
