OOTD | Just Another Jay Looking For Her Silent Bob

Coat: F21 | Sweater: F21 | Tee: Hanes | Leggings: Target | Boots: Report | Scarf: TJMaxx | Beanie: Target

I'm going to preface this in two separate but ultimately related ways.

First, I know that Clerks 2 is not a "Jay and Silent Bob" movie classically speaking, but it is one of my top five favorite movies of all time, so at least in the abstract being compared to Jay or Silent Bob isn't inherently offensive to me.

Second, I woke up late this morning and it's cold and just getting out of bed felt like I conquered Everest. Real pants and a shower were out of reach today.

Third, and I know I said two up there but going up to change it seems impossibly complicated right now so just go with it, I was referred to in the same sentence as Dog the Bounty Hunter this weekend, so I think I was just warmed up to not be offended by basically anything.

Today I waved at three of my guy friends and they didn't recognize me. As in, they thought I was a boy. More specifically, thought I was Jay (which I suppose I prefer to being mistaken for Silent Bob). And then one of them tried to sort of explain it away by saying "it's not really the beanie so much as your hair sticking out from under it that's Jay-like." So you're saying it's not what I'm wearing but an actual part of me that resembles a man. I feel so much better.

So let this be a lesson unto you. Don't wear beanies if you have hair like Jay, and also go watch Clerks 2. Or at least this part or this part or this part. Please for the love of God do not click those links if you get offended easily. Or at all. Seriously this is not a joke nothing to see here go on about your day.


  1. I love beanies, and you don't look like a guy. Hang in there, girl. I promise you there will be more relaxing days ahead.
    XO, Gina

  2. Not sure I've ever seen Clerks 2 but my husband and I quote Clerks to each other all the time. It was even more hysterical after my husband actually worked in a gas station mini-mart for a time.

  3. beanies are my savors right now - little knit saints from the I-don't-want-to-wash-my-hair-it-is-cold-outside-Gods. You look adorbs, and you should have punched that boy!

  4. I love all the Jay & Silent Bob movies!

  5. Oh my gosh. So many terrible, fowl things came to mind when I saw the title of this post. Ha! I loved Clerks 2 when I was a middle schooler. I'm not sure I'd be able to take that kind of humor now, but it still holds a fond place in my heart. Unfortunately, I do see a little bit of Jay in this outfit, but fortunately, it's in an absolutely adorable way. And what's a girl to do when it's like no degrees out? Layers upon layers upon hats. It's fine.

  6. Yes! I love Clerks 2! Hahaha. Those clips made me laugh.

  7. That is a hilarious movie but you look so cute! least they didn't think you were Silent Bob!

  8. Lol, guy comments on fashion always crack me up! I think you look cute!


  9. Boys are weird, Jay and Silent Bob? That movie was old when I was in college a decade ago. Iam actually surprised they knew it. Must be a classic :) also, love the peplum top. I've yet to try one one but have already kind of decided it my head that it worked work on me....great on everyone else, weird on me. I just need to suck it up and try.
