SLIDER

Creamsicle

Dress: c/o BaBassu   Heels: c/o My Hot Shoes   Bag: Pacsun



I felt like a walking ice cream bar in this. The colorblocked shades of orange, red, and white were just perfect for another gorgeous, summer day! However, the wind kicked up, and I feared I would pull a Marilyn Monroe pose in this light, fluttery dress.


But I made it without flashing anyone - I think. Haha this is a dress from BaBassu, which I'm absolutely ecstatic over! Its one of those pretty pieces you can just toss on and feel amazing in. I love walking in it and feeling the air play with the light material.


Anyway, I couldn't resist matching my orange heels with it. I mean, come on, how could I not? Although walking along the railroad tracks in these shoes? That was an experience! Oh the things I'll do for blogger pictures...

Bangles: Claires   Ring: Forever 21


So speaking of ice cream, guess what? I'm going out to grab some with my friend Patrick tomorrow. He called me last night and asked if we could get together to hang out again. I gotta say, I'm getting slightly better at handling phone calls...


Once again I feel slightly fluttery in the stomach about this "date" or whatever you want to call it. It really isn't clear what's going on between us. Seriously, there's no flirting, more like honest interest in getting to know each other. Which I really like since I've decided I'm just not ready to seriously date a person. At least, not during the summer. This season is all about enjoying the moment and having fun!

Earrings: Rue 21

I mean, is it so bad to enjoy my "break" from being in a relationship? It's been over half a year since my previous one, and I've found I really enjoy being single! I have fun thinking I'm this girl none of the guys can have. Haha, their friendship is far more valuable than any fling anyway.



So I'm going to try to keep things casual throughout the summer. We'll see what happens in the future.
But for now, my summer mantra is this:
"Just enjoy the moment."

"just enjoy the moment" is a great mantra to have!

Love this dress on you and it pairs perfectly with the orange heels! The railway tracks make for beautiful photos, so worth the hassle of walking there in the heels!

Hope you have fun with Patrick tomorrow :)

It's a perfect summery dress, I love how you combined it with those heels, you look absolutely amazing :) The wind can get really annoying at times though, I totally pulled a Marilyn Monroe pose as I was getting in the car last week. Thank God there weren't many people in the parking lot and I was wearing tights, haha!
