SLIDER

Brighter Than the Sun






Colbie Caillat would have to be my artist of choice for the summer. I love her upbeat, California style that translates into her songs. Whenever she comes on the radio, I love to crank up the volume, roll the window all the way down, and just soak in the absolute feeling of summer.

Dress (worn as skirt): c/o Sugarlips   Tee: Pacsun   Satchel: garage sale   Flats: Philippines   Belt: thrifted

And right now, I'm feeling positively radiant about it too. Wednesday was a fantastic day! I stopped by Golden Corral (a place I've been trying to land a job at) and walked up to see the hiring manager again. He remembered my name right away and gave me a high five. Apparently, something had opened up! It's not a lot of hours, but it's better than nothing. I'm hoping it'll eventually lead to a better position, so I'll be starting work soon! I just did my orientation today, so tomorrow he wants me to come in.

Earrings: Rue 21

As for the rest of the day, I went and met Patrick at this frozen yogurt shop (hehe, it's my favorite summer treat!). Once again, he immediately paid for both of ours before I could even open my mouth to offer. Then when I said I'd pay for our next get-together he just laughed it off and said, "Maybe...if I let you."


After we finished, he offered to grab us some lunch, but I told him I was still full from our ice cream. So instead we walked around the mall and he helped me find good running shoes. I'd told him how my feet were hurting after going to the gym. I've been  using these cheap, non-supportive tennis shoes. It just so happens that he used to work at Big 5, so he knew a thing or two and helped point me in the right direction.

And on another note, it was the first time Patrick really made a comment about my appearance in this outfit. Haha, he just said I looked really nice and that he liked my earrings. 


A funny moment that occurred was when we walked into Payless, and Patrick turned around since he thought he heard someone talking to us. Turns out this older guy (he looked like a hippie) had complimented me on my hair for being so healthy and shiny! At first, I thought he was telling Patrick that since it looked like that's who he was looking at. Nope, turns out it was me. Which I guess would make more sense, haha!

I always leave reading your blog for better moments - I mean when I actually have time to read the post - because I truly love your stories! :) And that Patrick of yours seems to be a true gentleman - I think you should let him pay for your drinks or whatever. It's not big sums, I guess, but makes him feel like a man. :) He seems genuine and nice. I wish you both all the best.
Hugs my dear!

Great outfit once again sweetie =) I love that dress you featured as a skirt! Congratulations on landing the job..you'll do really well! And I am such a big fan of frozen yogurt as well! I put almost all kinds of fruit in it!

Patrick is such a sweetie, it's nice that he won't let you pay, very gentlemanly - and if he's commenting on your outfit then that's a good sign =) I remember when Leon commented on a skirt - I wore three months before! Needless to say I was shocked and flattered

Haha, have a nice summer sweetie
