Ratted Out

Tee: Target  |  Jeans: Forever 21  |  Jacket: Old Navy   |  Wedges: Target
Scarf: Old Navy (shop)   |  Glasses: GlassesUSA.com

See this outfit?  We have a special bond.  We've been to war together.  You see, I've worn this outfit for 3 days straight because instead of focusing on getting dressed, I've been at war with a sneaky little rat intruder.  Ugh.

The rat's been in our house for 4 days and we can't get rid of him, so a call to the exterminator is long overdue.  Some disgusting highlights of our rat adventures are: him eating 1/3 of a huge tomato on our counter. (How'd he get up there? he's so nasty...), sneakily getting bait off the trap without setting it off--while we were in the same room as him, and a sleepless night when we discovered he was in our bedroom cuz I woke up to him running across me (eeeek).  Disgusting.

On a happy note, I like this mint tee from Target.  And this Old Navy scarf!  But since I wore this for 3 days straight, outfit posts might be slim this week.  Another reason this rat's gotta go.

  2. Oh, I feel you! We have mice in our pantry and will find little turds all over the place. We are now washing and double-checking EVERYTHING before we cook with it. Gross!

    Are your jeans black?  I've been thinking about getting black jeans, but not sure if they are a good idea or not.  Love your outfit, as always!

  7. I love that chevron print on your scarf and that mint tee is so pretty!

    I had a bunch of rats in my apt when I lived in NYC, it was the worst! One time I saw one run across the counter and then I ate out for an entire week because I was too scared to go back into the kitchen! They finally went away once it got warmer out but I am thankful I don't live there anymore (plus I have 2 dogs now that would probably terrorize them!).

  18. Oh you poor thing...I would have died if I saw a rat anywhere near me. Your're brave. Hope it's gone soon ;)
    Love that scarf, such a nice touch to the outfit.

  19. I have been known to scream when seeing a mouse.  Growing up in the country we normally see field mice when the weather changes to cold...except on the farm we have 'barn cats' that take care of them for us.

  20. This scarf is awesome! Love the colors. We had mouse problems once, and when I lived out on 'the farm' there was a shrew that would sneak into our kitchen for dinner. But since I moved out on my own I've always had an indoor cat. They do wonders for vermin control :)

  21. OMG the rat was in your bedroom?!  And he crawled on you?!?  EWWW  Hope you get rid of him soon!  I hate rats/mice!

    On a brighter note, cute outfit, love the scarf!

  22. Oh my goodness. I saw your tweet and had to read about your rat! I hope you catch him soon... or borrow a friend's cat for a few days. :o)

  23. Oh.my.goodness. I can't stop grimacing. At least you look gorgeous while at war! Love the scarf.

    First of all...ewww. That's definitely not fun. But you look SOOO cute in this outfit. I'd wear again and again and again, too! (even without a rat problem...hehe)

  25. Good luck on your rat hunt! Even if you're rewearing this outfit, it's cute. (:

  26. Oh.my.goodness.gracious, Audrey. Did the rat really run across you? You are one brave lady living through that. I hope you've caught the guy. Have you ever seen Willard? When the exterminator came to our house I asked him all about it. 

    On a separate note, you look completely adorable. I love those Target t-shirts and have several, but I might have to get a mint one on my next Target trip! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Cute outfit but you might want to wear boots. That rat might run over your toes (ewww!) but he did run over you so I guess it can't get any worse! :) Hope you catch that sneaky, little guy SOON. Can't wait to see more cute outfits!

  28. LOVE how the scarf ties the whole outfit together.  Great look!!

  29. Am I the only one here that likes rats? I think they are really intelligent and cute. Well, if one got into my home I would try to get rid of it (humanely, I'd never kill it) but I wouldn't be be disgusted.

  30. love your shirt!  i was looking for a mint colored shirt forever!  can you tell me who makes your shirt so i can go get one at target please? =)

  31. Mossmio Pocket V-neck tee.  They look like this (http://www.target.com/p/Mossimo-Supply-Co-Juniors-Pocket-V-Neck-Tee-Assorted-Colors/-/A-13717011) but the color is NOT online, so you've gotta go in store.  Good luck!
