As Sweet As It Gets

Tee: Philippines   Jacket: thrifted   Jeans: Target   Necklace: garage sale   Wedges: c/o My Hot Shoes

Well, its Valentines Day, and this single girl will be working till close today. 
I know, I know, how tragic. How forever alone can you get?
But you know what, it's okay. I'm making my money, and I'm going to see Safe Haven with a gal pal tomorrow. Life is good.

Still, I wanted to put together a Valentines Day outfit for the blog to show what I would be wearing if I had the day off. However, I'm just not a romantic at heart. I attempted to make an outfit with pink or red in it, but I didn't feel like myself in anything I tried! So instead, I decided to go for a more subtle, neutral look. Note: floral jeans + heart necklace = romantic. Right? Haha, and then spiked wedges are a no-brainer, of course.

Maybe this is why I'm single...
Ah well, I like my spikes, what can I say? And these gorgeous wedges from MyHotShoes do the trick! They're not your ho-hum, safe little studs either. These are legit spikes! I accidentally scratched myself while hurriedly trying to take them off - let's just say, lesson learned. I chose the tan colored ones, but you should check out how this girl wore her black version. 

Now I may be dense when it comes to boys...but not so dense I couldn't see this coming.
We were sitting in the sub where we'd ran into each other, and there had been a lull in our conversation. He was looking intently at me, and I asked what was up.

" you have a cell phone?" he asked shyly.
"Yes...I do..." I trailed off, letting him finish the question he really wanted to ask.
"Well...would it be okay if I got your number? Maybe I can text you after class or when you get off work sometime."
I sat quietly for a moment, digesting that statement. I felt strange and tingly all over. Finally, I smiled at him.
"Yeah, I'd like that."
You should've seen the way his face lit up. "Cool! Maybe I can take you out sometime. Just for fun, ya know," he added quickly.
Haha, oh man, I couldn't wipe the ridiculous grin off my face! We'll see how this possible date goes. I'm really intrigued to know this guy better, and like I told a friend, only one way to do that, right?

Happy Valentines Day lovelies!

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

What a great outfit. I adore that jacket and those print pants. I have been attempting to find a jacket similar to yours for so long now.

Happy Valentine's Day. I hope you have a lovely day.

Hi dear, I think its so refreshing that you didn't end up wearing red or pink, and the floral pants are perfectly romantic in a lovely subtle way. Enjoy the movie and please let me know how it was.

Sarah Mira Park said...

Ohhh nowadays I feel like it's hard to come by guys who are gutsy enough to ask a girl out in person! The convenience of the Internet and FB chat has taken most of the thrill out of asking a girl out, but what a cute experience! I hope he turns out to be a great guy :)

HAHAHA Always let HIM, be more interested in YOU than vice versa! HAHAHAHA So happy for you doll! I LOVE your outfit! Those shoes and pants are awesome. Yes, I really liked that collection. I went to see Hansel & Gretel today and went out for dinner. It was a nice day!

Aw, that's so cute, the way he asked for your phone number is just flat out adorable! :) It's so fun and wonderful to see you so excited and having fun with the possibly of meeting someone new, you really deserve a fantastic guy. (And this one sounds pretty amazing.) I get so excited reading your posts, it's like "yay for Linda!"

This outfit is just killer. I love how you rock printed pants, you've got such a fantastic collection and they really work for your style. I love these with your green jacket and oh, those shoes! (Be still my heart, those studs are cool! And hey, now you've got weapons!)

Great pants, and I love love love your shoes! <3

Mica said...

Aww so cute that he asked you out, what a sweetheart! I hope you have fun wherever he decides to take you! :)

Really like this outfit too - those studded wedges are amazing as as your floral jeans :) Just be careful when you wear the wedges in summer and cross your legs - I have a pair of flats with spikes around the edges and when I'm forgetful and barelegged I can give myself a bit of a prick with them, haha!

Benlovesting said...

So beautiful!

Kym said...

I happen to think floral jeans are romantic enough for Vday. But then again I've never been one for reds, pinks, and frills all rolled up into one outfit. And can we talk about those amazing shoes?!?! They are EVERYTHING!


indie by heart said...

Those shoes are just stunning ! :) Lovely pants & necklace too, cute sweet touch to this look.

My Valentine wasn't so rosy red either, stayed home alone with cold..! :,D
Thanks for the comments dear !

Hi Linda! I am 5'5" too. You looked taller just in other shoes. I love to wear platforms and wedgies too. My husband is taller than me by 3 inches but when I wear my heel, which he loves me to, I am about 2 inches taller. He likes the way my legs look in heels. Ain't that cute? He doesn't care if I am taller, just so I am nice looking. awh, my sweet man! My first [ex] husband was 6' tall. My 2nd was about the same size as my 3rd [current]. Have you read my "about my life" page? My 2nd husband died after us knowing each other for only 2 yrs. sad.

Thanks for your fun words and I am still astounded by your maturity at your age. Have a great weekend!

omg omg you gotta keep us updated~~ eep, that's so exciting for you! I hope your date goes well for you.

Hehehe, anyway, I really love your jeans and how you matched your shoes to the faint roses in them. That sand color is just lovely. I like how this outfit is so very feminine without you wearing a bunch of pink and red. :D
