Urban Travel Uniform: The Split Maxi

Also known as: my  new favorite thing.

My Urban Travel Uniform: Casual, Utterly Sexy

I have this bad habit of eschewing any odd trend that makes me feel buttoned up, suffocated, or particularly unsexy. I heard it best on EliteDaily, and while I believe that site is an excuse for men to essentially carry on a pretentious form of collegehumor.com, I completely agree on this point:

“The last thing anyone would ever want is a girl that dresses like a circus clown and calls it fashion, like most fashion students do. Keeping it simple but still classy and sexy is the key here as we’re sure most men would agree with us.”

OK, so “the last thing anyone would ever want” might be hyperbole, but you get the picture. There’s a reason I feel like one should wear collars with caution and not mix prints, no matter how cool it might be. Call me old-fashioned, but I think classic and sexy is best.

Enter my new favorite thing: the split maxi.

Equality Appreciation Day, or: Chick-Fil-A Copycat Nuggets

In honor of Chick-Fil-A appreciation day, O and I decided to have an appreciation day of our own: equality appreciation day. We really don’t feel the need to agree with the politics of any corporation or its officers, but there’s something about a little piece of our nugget value meal going towards ex-gay rehabilitation that makes us itchy.

Oh, that, and, it’s insanely unhealthy? It’s insanely unhealthy.

There’s this odd misconception that, I suppose because the chicken at Chick-Fil-A has a grain to the meat, it’s remotely healthy. People genuinely believe it’s better for you than Burger King, or whatever, and some genuinely believe it’s not unhealthy. Those people are about as wrong about nutrition as Chick-Fil-A is about what makes someone gay (personal choice, of course!). Does this, my friends, look healthy to you?

All this to say.. O, however, loves loved Chick-Fil-A. Despite his usually overpowering preference when it comes to a quick Saturday lunch, even he gave up the chain after the hateful reveal of where our money is actually going. What does a man who takes a stance deserve?

Chick-Fil-GAYOK! nuggets.

I thought O loved me, or: Baked Brie with Raspberry Preserves

And then I knew he loved me. Seriously, two days later he said “I’m going shopping with your mom soon.” And of course, I made a horrible wtf-face and asked, “Why would you do that? You hate shopping.” He responded with a very wide-eyed pursed-lips face and said “Why do you think I’m going shopping with your mom? C’mon Stylist Quo..”

He quickly added, “Oh, but not for a ring HAHAHAHAH is that what you thought? You’re so silly. For your anniversary gift.”
