How We Do

Outfit Details:   Tank: Vanity   Denim Jacket: WalMart   Capris: (garage sale) Ana   Sandals: c/o My Hot Shoes       Bag: Rue 21

Anyone hear this song by Rita Ora? It's called How We Do, and I'm loving this new artist! She's got some catchy songs and is definitely on my summer playlist now. Plus, she sure can rock red lipstick.


These sandals are perfect. Seriously, they're so bohemian and summery! The beading and colorful straps make me smile everytime I look at my feet. 
Which, by the way, you've seen me wear a lot of shoes from My Hot Shoes, and I keep forgetting to tell you...you can get 20% off the site as a reader. Just use this code: LINDA20!


So this is what I wore yesterday to go into town for my dentist appointment. Just a casual bohemian style that was good for running errands in 

I'm actually really happy with the dentist I see. I remember when I was little and dreading the day I had to go in to see the dentist. Haha, I would pray that I didn't have any cavities and feared the drill so bad!

I've always gotten comments from people asking if I've had braces. Truth is, I was lucky enough to get away with naturally straight teeth. All thanks goes to my mom! 
I remember when I was little she'd tell me not to wiggle my loose tooth because the tooth coming in would be crooked otherwise. Not sure if that's true, but hey, I listened to her and it seemed to work.


Oh, and guess what? I snagged another discount code for you! I'm sure most of you have heard of Lulus. It's this online site with amazing clothes, shoes, and accessories. 
Use the code: TRENDYTEAL for 15% off your entire purchase!
Make sure to keep it capitalized too, since the code is case sensitive. 


It's been a while since I did a jumping photo. :) 

So one night Patrick and I were talking about camping trips (seriously, our conversations wander from one topic to another in a millisecond), and he is one lucky guy, because his family has a cabin near the beach! Seriously?? Soooo jealous. My family and I used to go to the beach every summer when we lived in California. When I told him that, he came up with the brilliant idea to get a group of friends together and go down to this nearby lake! It's not the beach, but hey, pretty close. I'm psyched for when this happens.


 Oh, and for those of you wondering, the coffee "date"/get-together with Patrick hasn't happened yet. Haha, like I've said, we're keeping it casual and getting to know each other will come in time. 
You know, I've thought about it, and I honestly don't know what I'd do if his interest continued past friendship...because I think right now that's all I'm ready for.

But whoa, I need to slow down. Haha, my brain jumps ahead in time far too much. I haven't even figured out if he's that interested! For now, I consider him a new friend that I'd like to know better.


What do you say to a guy if you consider him just a friend and he starts pursuing you as more than that?

Oh, and don't forget to enter the Ministry of Retail giveaway! It's international, so don't worry if you're a reader outside the US :)

I love the stripey tank top with the denim jacket! I hate going to the dentist too, I hated it especially when I was young and had to have teeth taken out, the big needles are scary! xx

Hey, if an opportunity arises with this Patrick guy, you might have to test dem waters. But I know what you mean--I wonder if I could ever even get past the friendship stage with a guy. It's good that you're not thinking too fast though. You are a smart lady! :)

That purse is so cute. Looks great with your denim jacket! And are those tiny cherries I see on your nails?! haha, they're precious!

Lulus is like my favorite online store. Oh, if only my birthday wasn't coming up so soon...

You look absolutely lovely & I simply adore the surroundings! As for your question, I guess there's no right way to say that. It all depends on a person. At the age of 15, I had this really good guy friend, I could tell him everything. Then it turned out he fell in love and even though I tried to let him know I wasn't interested in a super nice way, he felt hurt and didn't talk to me ever since. Hopefully, it will be alright between you two, I wish you all the best :)

Rory said...

what do i say if a guy starts pursuing me? well i'll letcha know if that ever happens ;) As of yet, i've still not had a serious boyfriend (middle school relationships DO NOT count). But I want one SO BAD! I say if hes interested and you like him go for it! :) but since you dont want to date maybe not...anyway, love the shoes! I'm seriously obsessed with myhotshoes. If they didnt give me free stuff, i'd probably buy anyway! My wedges are so comfortable and they're only 20 bucks! I also got a pair of leather sandals which are ALSO comfortable. They are only 18! goodness. Anyways,yeah i never had braces either and everyone always asks me that! I did wiggle my baby teeth though ;)

I love reading about your guy stories...it's so cute! love those sandals, great choice.

Izzy said...

aww you're so lucky to have straight teeth! I used to be the one blessed with straight, white teeth back in highschool while everyone else had to put up with braces, but then my teeth started getting all crooked for some reason! and now I have a billion cavities in my teeth as well from all the chocolate I eat.

the fringed bag is so cute btw! :)

Jess said...

oh such cute sandals!! im in such need of new sandals... after my heels messed up my feet the other day lol. as for your friend... hm, either don't hang out with him one on one, or just tell him you're interested in someone else! or confide in him like you would to a girl friend... like 'oh i think so and so likes me and i don't like him like that...' and then he'll feel too weird to be like, oh but i like you... hahah good luck!

Oh, boys used to call me the man-killer so maybe you wouldn't want my advice! hehe..but I agree with getting to know him first and making a new friend..and you'll never know, in a few months or so (take it from my personal experience :)

Anyways, so chic just to go the dentist, I usually look drab when it's dentist time! Love the bag and super fun pictures!
