SLIDER

Heart Skips A Beat

Top: c/o BaBassu   Shorts: thrifted   Wedges: thrifted   Belt: PacSun   Bag: garage sale   Sunglasses: vintage


I finally dipped my toe into the high-waisted trend; and even this is pretty mild compared to some really high-waisted shorts! But for now, I like this tiny dose of it.With some neutral brown accessories and gold jewelry, I feel like this outfit balances the perfect line between stylish yet casual.

Ring & Cuff: c/o RMS

Yesterday was such a good day! Even at work, surprisingly. You remember that girl Trinny who gave me a hard time when I first started? Well, we've worked together more since then, and I feel as if we've gotten along better. She must agree, because yesterday she told me, "So apparently I'm not the only one who adores working with you. I was talking with Shae yesterday and told her 'I love working with Linda.' I mean, you're just so sweet and innocent-like!"


Crazy how things can change, huh? If you don't know what she was like before, read my old post here. Haha, but I'm glad her opinions changed. And it's funny how they view me. I'm the little angelic girl apparently, all innocent and pure. Which you know, isn't the worst reputation to have. I'm more reserved anyway, so I'm not going to fight my nature and try to deny it. It's true! But that doesn't mean I'm a complete prude. ;)


Haha, then after work Patrick met up with me and we went to my house to hang out with my family and our guests. Dad's old childhood friend (they're still close friends today!) was passing through on his motorcycle and decided to stop in and stay a couple days. Dave is his name, and he's like the awesome uncle I've never had. He came up to Patrick, shook his hand, then told him, "Hey, I'm her dad's cop friend. You're going to treat this little lady right, aren't you." The way he said it wasn't in question form either. Haha, Patrick just said, "Yes sir, I will!"


So it was just a good time spent with good company in general. One of those ordinary days that are just special enough to give you a joyful feeling inside.

I haven't found the perfect shorts to pull this off yet. But you sure have! I love the way you paired it with a lace top and cute accessories. And aw, I'm so glad that girl Trinny isn't mean anymore. How could anyone be mean to you??? It's true, you seem 100% sweet and nice to me :) BUT you're right--niceness doesnt= prudeness. I'm the goody goody in my group of friends too. And I'm no prude ;)

Awww, looks like you've had some people say some good things about you! I'm glad that co-worker has finally changed her mind about you. I don't know how she could ever think in the first place that you were anything but sweet, but hey, why complain about that now when things are looking up? :D

This outfit is so cute and casual! I adore that lace top on you. And those shorts are such a pretty color and look great on you. I, too, am a little wary to try high waisted shorts. I had some, but now they've stretched out too big... darn. xD

yay for ordinary special days <3 <3 <3 yayayyayy

I actually love high-waisted pants and skirts and shorts, I think they're so comfortable! your classy shorts look really good with the lace top btw. oh and the bag! I actually got a vision that I saw a pretty similar one in a local thrift store in the beginning of this week! I'm going to check again today :P
and thank you for the shoe info, I'm happy to hear I'm not the only one with the shoe issue, haha. you would be surprised if you saw my wardrobe and all the shoe boxes from the floor up to the ceiling :D

Sarah Stright said...

Love the lace top! And it's always nice to have the protective "uncle" around. When my uncle (who owns a steel factory) first met my fiance, he took him over to the biggest scariest machine and said "if you don't treat her right, I'll give you a first hand look into how this machine works".
