Romantic Florals

Outfit Details:   Kimono: Rue 21   Tank: vintage   Skirt: vintage   Shoes: thrifted



These photos are so old...this was an old school outfit I'd worn, but I dug them out and thought I'd share them with you. I'll try getting some newer ones taken soon!


So...I've been enjoying reading all of your lovely comments lately, especially regarding my "Patrick stories." Haha, I honestly highlight those times because I want to remember them myself later on. 
Quite a few of you have mentioned how our moments are like straight from a movie (which, btw, thanks guys haha, that made me smile). 
Well yesterday when we got together again to hang out, it really did feel like a movie.

Ring: Forever 21

Seriously, I still can't wipe the grin off my face. I won't go into all the details, but basically, we can't call what we're doing "just hanging out" anymore. You know how I told you we had agreed to see where it leads? Yeah, from the look in his eyes, I know it's going somewhere...and I certainly don't mind ;)


Alright, I guess I won't tease you too much with lack of details. Here's a little, sweet moment. We're watching Batman on his laptop so we're all comfortable and what not, and during this one intense scene towards the end, our hands brush lightly. It wasn't intentional (although thinking back, I wonder if maybe he had meant that to happen...), but he suddenly reached out and took my hand in his.

Necklace: c/o Lylif
Once he realized I was letting him get away with that, it was as if he suddenly relaxed and he stretched out so his whole arm was around me. 
So there, that's a peek into our afternoon. Haha, I can't go and blurt out every single moment or conversation (trust me, that'd make for a ginormous post)! But let's just say I feel as if I'm walking on air right now.


Oh, and just for you my dear readers...a little fun picture that hopefully brings a smile to your face. :)
Kirsten had caught me joking around on camera, and I thought, "What the heck? Might as well share it!"
Because fashion should be fun!

Aww that is such a cute moment with you and Patrick! :)

You're adorable you know! :) Brings a smile to my face every time and reminds me of the first rushes and excitements with my hubby! I still smile every time he takes my hand, but nothing compares to the first time :)

Ali Hval said...

yyyAAAAAAAY the patrick stories have evolved! Does this mean we're entering chapter 2, or perhaps a second addition to the series? Hee hee hee. I'm glad you're going with your instinct, girl. I think everything will be lovely together. :D

I like that big red ring of yours. It's so very in-yo-face, in a good way. Helps to bring the red from that cardigan out. Fierce necklace as well! :)

Maybe I'll eventually have boy stories to share with my blog, but for now I'll be jealous--er, supportive--of yours. (: Also, I dig that last photo. I try to include my dumb photos as often as possible so people know I'm a dork over here.
