My Blaque Muse


Tank: c/o Blaque Muse   Shorts: c/o Oasap   Sandals: Forever 21   Necklace: Forever 21   Bangles: Claires



Is colorblocking just fun or what? When you can't get enough of bright colors, what better trend for summer, right? It's even better when clothes do it for you!
My new tank from Blaque Muse has me excited about the colorblocking craze. It's very light and flowy, and the bold blue and bright mint green complement each other perfectly!


And here's some good news for you - you can win it for yourself! Enter through the Rafflecoptor widget below and in one week I'll draw a winner and e-mail them.
In the meantime, you should check out Blaque Muse's shop. If you see something you want to buy, use the code trendyteal for an additional 20% off!


Now, you know what I'm horribly awkward at (besides lounging in a tree)? Talking on the phone.
Want to know why? Here's the top 3 reasons:
  1.  Not being able to hear clearly and repeatedly asking "What"? Then just pretending to agree with whatever they said because it'd be too embarrassing to ask them to repeat it again.
  2.  Those awkward pauses in the conversation and you get desperate to think of something to fill them in with.
  3.  Not knowing what in the world to talk about to fill those awkward pauses.


You're probably laughing at me now, but to me, there is a huge difference between talking in person and talking on the phone. Sure, it's more personal than texting, but still! I guess in person I feel less awkward.So naturally, guess who decided he wanted to call me instead of text?


If you've been reading my last few posts I'm sure you guessed it. Haha, Patrick, a new friend I've been getting to know, replied to a text asking if he could call me.
I seriously stalled in replying for about 10 minutes.
Then I resigned myself and told him sure. To my surprise, it wasn't that bad at all! There were only two moments that I can recall where there was an awkward pause. In fact, we ended up just chatting for an hour. Thank heavens we're both Verizon users! Haha, that way it doesn't count towards our minutes plan.


Anyway, lately I've been waking up at 2:15 AM to run the newspaper route for my friends while they're gone at a tournament. And it is killing me.
Seriously, how do they do this every day!? Let alone for the past five years...man, it's crazy. I get home around 4:30 and just crash. I don't wake up till about 1 in the afternoon!
Oh well, it's only for 3 days, and today happens to be the last one (hallelujah!). Plus, I'm getting paid. 
Personally, it's not enough, but oh well. I don't know who else would help their mom do it. She told me she may just hire me instead of her kids, since I get it done so fast. Turns out they usually just walk, whereas I'm jogging and shave off an extra hour. Hey, just means more sleep for both of us in the end!


So don't forget, enter below for your chance to win this colorblocked tank from Blaque Muse!

haha you're adorable! "Thank heavens we're both Verizon users!" Good thing. ;) I'm glad you guys are both talking. That's so awesome for you! :D

Oh goodness, I am horrible at talking on the phone--no, it's so okay, don't even worry. I despise talking on the phone. I also refuse to go through the drive thru at the bank (with the tube things that you put your check in so they can cash it? NOPE) so instead I go inside so I can talk to a human being. Awful. In other words, phones and other types of technology (drive thrus??skdlasjfa) where you can't see a person are lame.

Well, about your outfit now since I have rambled enough in your comments... that top is so lovely! Colorblocking is such a perfect trend for that exact reason you stated: bright colors, hoorah! Love it paired with those fancy lace shorts of yours. So unexpected, but it works so very well! :)

Love the color block trend! Your top is fabulous, and so are your crochet shorts! I seriously want crochet shorts :(

Anyways, I also have trouble keeping up with phone conversations, sometimes I just agree, agree, agree, but I don't really understand what's going on, but it's nice that you get to talk fluidly with Patrick :)

I LOVE this color block top! Really cute! Just yesterday I almost bought a pair of shorts exactly like yours! Also really cute.

And as for phone talking, I can be awkward at it too. But from what I remember, when a new-ish guy calls and it's all cute, those conversations usually came pretty easy ;)

Nice crochet shorts

Izzy said...

the lace shorts were the perfect thing to go with the bright top! and omg I don't like talking on the phone either because I have SUCH bad hearing. I already have a hard time in real life so when I can't actually see their lips moving with the words it's even worse! Awkward pauses are ok, I don't have to worry about not being able to hear what they're saying lol.
