The Tiny Heart: Stripes & Plaid

4.02.2014

Stripes & Plaid




 Tee-Forever 21 (similar Old Navy Striped Tee for $8), Shirt-A&F (similar JCPenney Plaid Shirt),  Monogram Necklace-Eliza Jay Charm, Old Navy Jeans, Bag-H&M, Hunter Kids Boots

I'm still reeling from the How I Met Your Mother finale on Monday. (Warning, if you didn't see it yet, spoilers are ahead. Stop reading now! And if you don't watch the show, sorry this post isn't for you!). I just felt robbed for it to end that way. Maybe that ending would've worked back before Robin and Barney became serious a few seasons ago. But it seemed to me that Robin and Barney were a much better fit than Robin and Ted ever would be. Plus, the Mother was absolutely perfect for Ted in every single way. I hated that they just glossed over the fact that she died, as if it was no big deal. I also didn't think it was believable that the kids would be rooting for their dad to be with Robin. It was a terrible ending to a wonderful show. 

Did you watch the HIMYM finale? What were your thoughts?

  6. I agree! The Robin things was too random and didn't fit. And I didn't but Barney being an attentive dad all of a sudden. And they did gloss over the whole mom death. Arghhhh. Love the Hunters with this outfit!

  9. Also, remember how Robin pretty much hates kids? And loves travelling all over the world? So how's that going to work?

  14. My sister in law put it best - Ted is like Charlie Brown and Robin is Lucy - she never treated him right - he finally marries the Little Red Haired Girl, but then she dies and he goes back to Lucy....it felt empty and wrong. And it was their intention the entire time! They filmed that scene with the kids years ago! End rant.

    I love stripes and plaid - putting them together is even better!

  15. I'm not familiar with the show, but I have heard a lot of uproar about the ending. I hate when that happens! It seems even more of a let down in a show that lasts years rather than a bad ending to a movie that lasts a few hours.

  16. You're such an amazing print mixer! That striped top and plaid shirt are so cute together! I really hated the last 5 minutes of the show too! I was rooting for Ted and the mother from the second we met and then she's dead? Terrible! I also completely agree that they glossed over her death!

  19. Love the look! Never would have thought to pair together. Perhaps because I own nothing plaid, hmm....So the finale, I actually liked it, but this is coming from someone who just started watching the series last year and never caught up on the rest of the seasons. I did feel like it was slightly rushed, and didn't particularly like that after 5 minutes of being married, well you know what happened. But I think that Robin and Ted make sense to me. Also the scene with Barney and his daughter...cried like a baby! So sweet.

  20. I do love your bag! :) As for HIMYM, it finished as I wanted: very sentimental.

  26. I watched the finale and felt the same way!! I didn't watch the entire season but when I heard the finale was airing that was one episode I knew I had to catch and was stunned. -_- Can't believe it's over just like that!

  32. I feel the same exact way as you!!! I was so mad that we spent a whole season leading up to the wedding and then 5 minutes into the finale they got divorced! and I absolutely loved the mother!!! I'm still depressed they killed her off.

    I love your pattern mixing :)

    xo,

  36. I'm still about three seasons behind on HIMYM, but I feel like with a show like that, it's almost impossible to have an ending that will make everyone happy and have a payoff for nine years of wondering who the mother is.

    Anyway, love the stripes and plaid, cute mix!

  39. gah I just have SO MANY mixed feelings about HIMYM...still at the end of the week.

  40. Oh I hated the finale! It made me not like Ted. Why spend all that time telling this long complicated story of how they met and then the kids feel like it was all a round about way of saying he loved Robin, ugh. I'm ok if she died in the finale and that is why he was telling the kids this story. But I would like it much better if it was more a focus on the amazing years they had and bring in more Ted-ism similarities between them. Plus we spend 9 years with them all being close just to end and none of them are really close anymore?? whatever. haha

    Cute outfit though :) haha
