How Sweet It Is


Top: c/o Sincerely Sweet Boutique   Shorts: (thrifted) Mossimo   Belt: PacSun   Wedges: c/o My Hot Shoes   Bag: Rue 21

Yup, this new shirt is the inspiration for the title. The warm, orange-red stripes and lace panel was begging to be paired with some floral wedges, which together made a really sweet-looking combo!


I need to redo my nails...haha working at Golden Corral has eroded my nail design rapidly. Which, by the way, my job there has been getting better and better. I now know more of what I'm doing and enjoy interacting with some of the sweet people that come in. The old, grandpa-aged men who make jokes are the best!

Watch: Philippines   Bangles: Claires

Oh, and as for Pete, the flirt? Well...it seems he might've eased off for now. Perhaps he picked up on the hint...one day when I was sweeping the bar areas, he came by and asked me stuff like how long I was working, what I'd be doing after work, etc. Then he slips in: "So, do you have a number?"
I paused, finished sweeping, then looked up at him and just said "Maybe" before walking away to sweep another area. The next day when I got to work, he greeted me and then asked if I was ignoring him. I gave him a confused expression and he said he'd asked me a second time for my number. So I just honestly told him I hadn't heard him. As I eased inside the restaurant, trying to end the conversation, he said "Alright, we'll talk about it later then."


Yeesh, hopefully we won't! I'm trying to be nice but at the same time not let him think I'm interested. I don't want him to be talking smack about me for being rude, but I may have to stage an intervention soon. Or I'll just have to flat out tell him I don't want to give him my number...

On a lighter note, I finally went to see The Amazing Spiderman! I absolutely love those super hero movies. This one did not let me down either. It was thrilling and had nice touches of humor throughout.
Also, I decided to reach out and ask Patrick if he wanted to see it with me. Because the truth is, I've felt bad since every time we've hung out, he's the one who would think of what to do and ask me. So I decided to take it upon myself to help him out this time. I guess he was missing my company or something, because he ended up asking if we could hang out earlier before the movie just to get some coffee and catch up. :)
 We always have such great talks too. I swear that time flies by when we do. Before I knew it, two hours had passed and our movie was going to start soon!


Anyway, today my plans involve going to work early since I'm opening by myself (just a tad nervous about that...) and then going straight to the lake for some swimming afterwards with some friends! It'll be so much fun, and I'm sure I'll have more to tell you in the next post. ;)

Cute top and those shoes again! OOH! I think it's best to let a guy down as quickly as possible, but that's just me (I'm mean like that, haha!) =)

As for Spiderman 3, I loved it as well, but the bf liked the first series better, so we had a little friendly argument, and time will fly..but that's a good thing!

Hope you're well Linda!

Ali Hval said...

haha your "Maybe" response sounds kind of mysterious... maybe he's into that and thinks you're playing hard to get?! haha but I hope he will get the idea and stop trying soon. You're just such a babe and keep gettin' all these men after ya! :)

Ah well, I'm glad your work is going well! :D It's good that you're finally getting into the swing of things, and old grampas who make jokes are the cutest! Old people really are the best. :) They're just young people who are wiser and politer in wrinkly bodies is all, hehe.

That top is so casual chic! I love the warm stripes with the lace. Pretty pretty earrings, too!

These wedges are so cute for summer!
... And would it help if you told the annoying douche at work that you are already talking to someone and wouldn't feel comfortable giving your number out to him right now? Guys are annoying...I have had that happen to me when I was younger and didn't want them to get aggressive or rude so I just gave them my number and never answered when they called. :|

EverythingPrettyGirls said...

You look beautiful! I love this look - especially the shoes (so summery and fun!)

Good luck with everything! And swimming at the lake with friends, sounds absolutely perfect!

I saw the Amazing Spiderman yesterday and totally loved it, this Spiderman's personality is so much more fun and he's way hotter haha, and good for you for inviting him, most girls have a weird mindset that guys always have to be the ones with the initiative. Loved that combo, so sweet indeed :) lace, floral and pastel colors is all perfect

I like your fringe bag! And boys are sometimes hard it's best to tell them flat out but nicely that you aren't interested. Easier to not beat around the bush with those kinds of things. Happy you had a nice day though!
