Daddy's back!

God that came out creepy. Anyway, dreadfully sorry about the egregious lack of posts this weekend and today. I was at the beach with the fam celebrating my mom's birthday and freezing my ass off (an experience which also steeled my long-simmering feeling that Uggs are still the greatest thing ever and I don't care if everyone stops reading my blog because I just wrote that).

I know that the lack of fresh Daddy Likey material caused much suffering in the world (Lindsay and Meg, we'll make it through your recovery together) and I plan to remedy it with many posts today, tomorrow, and for the rest of eternity.

Let's get started with an adorable little jacket I've been obsessing over for a few days now:

I don't know about you, but when I walk into a crowded classroom, I almost always base my seating decision on who has the cutest outfit. My communications class last Thursday proved especially rewarding when I sat down next to my chosen fashion (non)victim and immediately started purring and stroking the little retro jacket she was wearing and saying over and over again how much I loved it. Surprisingly enough, she didn't pack up her books and leave and press charges, but instead kindly told me she worked in the BP section of Nordstrom and this jacket of my dreams was available there.

I looked online as soon as I got home but alas, it wasn't on the Nordstrom website. However, the jacket above was, and after a brief deliberation I've decided that I like this one even better and someday it shall be mine.

I do have to say that I don't much care for how the model is wearing it. I would wear this lovely jacket over a black long sleeve t-shirt, with a denim mini skirt, thick black tights (grey cable-knit would be so cute too) and the black patent leather flats I found at Nordstrom rack last week for $20 that are so cute I can barely stop myself from licking them.

Well, I started this post with the creepy statement of "Daddy's back!" and ended it with a creepy statement about how much I want to lick my new shoes. In the writing world, we call that a circular narrative. Sort of.

now that i've read the post, i like your version of the outfit w/ blue jacket. it would look much better paired with the black.
and the seating arrangement bit = brilliant.
well done again.

Haha, don't worry about licking your shoes. I got new shoes and am ready to make out with them. Wait... that sounded kind of creepy.

Yeah I still love my Uggs as long as I'm not in public. I just learned that you can put them in the washer and dryer and that totally assuaged my misery of thinking I had to replace them. Because I could NOT justify a new pair of Uggs.

V. cute and so Marc Jacobs! I love the colour and the white trim. But yes, the model's attire isn't showing off the jacket at all, infact she looks like a district nurse.

AT LAST! Wow, thanks for mentioning me and making me famous...do you think French Vogue will read it and contact me now? Wow I should go prepare and make notecards, GOODBYE! By the way, the ostrich/Sweetums comments are hilarious.
