Coffee Date


Outfit Details:   Button-down: thrifted   Tank: vintage   Jeans: JcPenney   Flats: c/o My Hot Shoes   Bag: c/o Wholesale Dress



So what did I end up wearing for a casual coffee date? 
A bright, watermelon-inspired outfit! Haha, I wanted to try this out so much after I saw a few bloggers mixing pinks and greens together. I think it's so fun and cheery. I'll admit, I almost didn't wear it because I worried over whether it was too much for a simple get-together. But then I shrugged and decided 'You know what? This is how I dress, and Patrick may as well find that out sooner than later.' 
With that, I put it on, applied a layer of lipgloss, and went into town to meet him at Java.
Now, bet you're wondering how it went, huh? ;)

Watch: Philippines   Sunglasses: Shopco

Well, I'll have you know it was even better than I thought! Nothing crazy romantic or anything (hello, we're just getting to know each other still), but it was definitely refreshing. 


He suggested a drink for me after I told him what kind of flavor I like and man, he nailed it with the Bowl of Soul! It's this amazing coffee that's got hints of dark chocolate and espresso and just giddy-makingly delicious!


Anyway, after we got our drinks, we grabbed a table outside and started chatting. Man, we covered so many topics! It was effortless too. I loved it. He's a deep guy, you know? Very mature yet fun and down-to-earth.
We ended up just sitting there and talking for two hours! So yeah, we didn't run out of things to say. And when there were lulls in the conversation it wasn't awkward at all. We'd just smile at each other before starting up again. 


Haha, it was awesome! I don't know where this might lead, but all I know is that I'm grateful I've met such an amazing guy. Whether he'll remain a friend or become something more in the future, I'm just glad he's in my life. It's rare to meet someone who's so genuine.


There are few people that I'll instantly click with like that too. I've always had a small, close circle of friends that I feel I can be 100% myself around, and once in a rare while I'll meet a person that I feel instantly at ease with. He's one of those people.


So afterwards I had to stop by Kirsten's and gab about how it went. Haha, which led to outfit pictures for you! 

Hehe, just had to do a spazzy jumpshot once again! I've missed these. Kirsten caught it perfectly too. :)


What do you think of this watermelon-inspired look? 
Pssst: Oh, and since I've been sharing songs lately, check out this cool one by Florence & the Machine.

Glad your day with a friend went well! Its always so nice when you meet someone and actually sit down and talk. Most people spend too much time on their phones and computer. We say we will hang out but it usually doesn't end up happening. Great colors in your outfit btw! I especially love your shoes. =)

awww your date sounds so cute! looks like the two of you really clicked ;) and i don't think your outfit was too loud- you looked super cute. i like the whole cheerful effect it gives

Ali Hval said...

Awee, I'm so glad that you've made a new friend that you can click with so well! It really is hard to find those people who you can talk to casually and, as you said, have pauses in conversation and it not be awkward. And especially people who are genuine--so hard to find! I really wish I could find some more people like that. Just when I did, though, he ended up deciding to move to another state. Well. Anyway. So congratulations on that, and I hope you guys can see each other again in the near future. :D

This is so watermelon cute without being too watermelon-y. I like to think that your flats are like the watermeon seeds. :D Too cute, my dear!

Joandy said...
