Sweet To Me, Like Sugar To My Heart

Candy - Mandy Moore

Two outfit posts in a row, can you believe it? You will laugh when I tell you that these photos were taken in a bathroom. It's okay, I don't blame you (I would laugh too). Last Monday, I accompanied my friend to karaoke bar in Menlo Park for a birthday. We took a break from all the singing we weren't doing (not my choice, by the way, because I happen to be a pro at karaoke) to snap some photos. The only reason this actually took place was because the walls coincidentally matched my beanie. Obviously, it was a sign that outfit documentation was meant to be. This was actually the first time I had ever worn this beanie, and I got it as a gift almost five years ago.  I don't know why I never put it on, because it is a real heat producer, and all I ever do is complain about how cold I am! I have been spending some time slowly cleaning out the contents of my room and closet, and, among the old One Tree Hill posters, 8th grade overalls (yes, I really wore overalls in the 8th grade), and high school cheerleading outfits, I have rediscovered many hidden treasures (e.g. my beanie!).  Don't you just love it when you find new old things in your closet? It's like finding $5 in the pocket of a pair of jeans you haven't worn in a while. I am confident that you will see a lot more of these little gems in some upcoming posts, so look out for that. Anyways, I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing holiday with your family and friends! Oh, and for the record, I LOVE karaoke (you can ask anyone that knew me in college, and they will tell you that on Thursday nights, I was often found first in line for karaoke at Brew Co.), and my song of choice is and always will be Candy by Mandy Moore. This is not a lie. 

PS: Mary of StyleFyles has graciously asked me to write a guest post for her blog. So, if you're in need of an extra serving of pancakeSTACKER in your life, head over to her blog and check out my food post which will be up later today! Thanks again, Mary! Annnd, don't forget: if you'd like to work with pancakeSTACKER, shoot me an email :)

You look very cute and I like the jumper! I'm not such a karaoke fan to be honest, maybe because I'm the worst singer in the world? :)

Candy by Mandy....classic!! haha loved that song too, I would NEVER karaoke for fear of dying of public humiliation, but if I was forced it would be old school Spice Girls (love them), or lady gaga..obvi! Hope you had a stellar Christmas love!!

I love finding hidden gems in my closet, but this has started to dwindle lately after I seriously deep-cleaned and emptied out my closet this summer. And I wish I were a pro at karaoke, haha - but I haven't ever karaoke-d before, but it's definitely on my to-do list.

Hahaha I love Mandy Moore's candy myself. Not a huge fan of karaoke unless it's asian style in a room with friends. I recently re-discovered an old item too and took a few pics.
