They Call Me A Sweetheart

Top: c/o BaBassu   Skirt: thrifted + DIY   Sandals: Philippines   Ring: c/o Oasap   Earrings: Rue 21


This outfit just seemed to embody everything about sweetness along with a sly dash of sexy. For example, a crochet top and half sheer maxi skirt? I think so at least! ;)


Plus, I'm wearing angel wings on my hand, so even more sweet, right? Haha, I love this statement ring! In math class, my friend Rueben had to comment on it and was saying silly stuff like: "You should get it blessed by a monk or something and then you can go around punching demons in the face - that'd be so awesome!" Oh man, boys make me laugh. Haha, their sense of humor is hilarious!


Here's some exciting news - I took the plunge and ordered my new camera!! Its going to be the Nikon D3100! You can bet that once it gets here I'll probably do a shrieking happy dance and then have it practically glued to my face. Haha, I can't wait!


So maybe you guys can help me with one of my classes. We're supposed to prepare an informative speech in my Communications class, and I wanted to talk about the Philippines. I've been there four times and would like to share about that experience. However, one of the key things is "connecting with your audience" and my teacher asked me how I planned on connecting the Philippines to my classmates here in Idaho. Aha, so tell me...why would you like to hear about the Philippines? Let me know in comments!


I'm really looking forward to this weekend - want to know why? It's more than "Yay it's the weekend!" sort of feeling. Haha, Patrick is taking me on an all-day date to the capital here, Boise! :D
We both took the day off for work and he's planned the entire day - which he refuses to let me know about. Aha, so it'll be a surprise, which is killing me since I'm a crazy curious person. But at the same time, it just makes it more intriguing and exciting!


All he's told me is that I might want to wear a dress.
Oh man, the possibilities...


PS: Don't forget about the InDressMe Giveaway I have going on here!

Philippines... of course I would love to visit if I had the chance but as long as I haven't done it, finding out things about the place would be really interesting :)
oh and what a dreamy outfit, again something different from you. very summery as well (you should see our cold and sucky weather!).
enjoy the trip, Linda, and take photos of course! ;)

Sounds like a great date, what a fun idea! Hope you enjoy it :)

Really like your outfit -the top and skirt are beautiful together :)

For your talk, maybe do soemthing like mentioning something in the US and then describing what it's like in the Phillipines? Like what the weather is like, what people do for fun, that kind of thing? Would help the audience connect even if they've never been there :) Just an idea :)

This IS very sweet- and adorable! I love the combination of the crochet top and nude skirt, so pretty. And what a cool ring! I'm taking a public speaking class right now and it's essentially the same thing, just audience analysis. It can be as easy as "some of you might be interested in travelling to the Philippines one day" or something of the sort. Good luck!

Jessi said...

Lovely outfit! The pale pink is perfect with the crochet and I love your cute ring! Your date with Patrick sounds so exciting! You'll have to let us know how it goes :)

Congratulations on getting the Nikon!! You're going to love it. :) i love mine. That skirt is super pretty too. I love the color and the lace looks amazing with it too. I would maybe connect the Philippines to your classmates through food. I would assume most people have had Asian food at some point! <3

Hi Linda! Czarina here! First of all, i really miss reading your blog!! I'm currently out of the blogging sphere for school requirements always take all my time :( So I read your previous posts and I'm so so thrill reading what you are up to these past few days.

I'm happy that you chose Philippines as your topic for your speech! From what you said, you want something that is based from your own experience. I think one of the things you can share is how happy and positive looking Filipinos are. How we can still put a smile on our face during hard times and always believe everything will be alright!

Other suggestions: beautiful beaches, Food!

ps: yor friend-now-your-boyfriend Patrick is so romantic!
pps: "A" is so creepy!!!! so stay safe :)

Ahhh I wore a VERY similar outfit to this last summer! Haha, same top over a nude dress and everything :) Love how you wore it with gold sandals!

Kym said...

haha! That would be a great demon punching ring! :)
I love this look - super girly and it looks totally comfy, too.

As for the Philipines, personally I'm always the most interested in the different nuances between a foreign culture and my own. Like different customs and greetings and superstitions (I know Filipinos have aLOT of them). Just interesting little things like that.
Good luck with your project!!
