Bodycon Love

Jacket: thrifted   Tee: Philippines   Skirt: Debs   Converse: Philippines   Bracelet: c/o RMS   Earrings: Debs


My thoughts in the picture above: "That's right, landed that jump like a pro. Don't be hatin." 
*brushes off imaginary dust*

I'll have to say, after walking around in this snug skirt, it can definitely give a girl a confidence boost! Not to mention her butt. Haha, these bodycon fits are so flattering. I have a few that I'll wear every now and then. Although for a day spent full of classes, I toned it down with some tights and Converse. Nothing like casual touches to make a dressy item work for day.

So yesterday during Photography class, it started pouring snow outside, and I immediately felt a scowl form on my face. I currently don't have my own car (its in the shop), so I have to walk everywhere. I was not looking forward to walking in that weather. But after class, CG came to the rescue and offered me a ride - he'd driven for the day, thank goodness! We both were heading to the same building to kill time before our next class, so it worked out.

We wandered inside and decided to lounge on one of the comfy couches that's set up for students. As we kicked back and talked, I tried warming my hands, but my complete lack of circulation wasn't helping. CG noticed my dilemma, and after a moment, he held out his hands.
"I can warm them up for you."
 I paused for a moment, but then thought: Well, since he's offering...
Goodness, that boy must be part werewolf, because his hands were warm! I felt mine instantly heat up.
"Holy crap, you are freezing!" he exclaimed.

Haha, it was funny, but he didn't mind. Eventually, I gently pulled my hands away. But as we continued talking about the most random things, he suddenly lifted his arm and put it around me. When I leaned back slightly in surprise, he oh so subtly tugged me closer. Cue blushing cheeks and butterfly hurricanes!

That's when I knew this spark between us wasn't just one sided. I'm both excited and nervous to see where this leads. He hasn't asked me out yet, and I think it's because he can sense that I'm still skittish. Right now, I like getting to know him little by little.
Oh, and the hand warming doesn't hurt of course!

Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God
2 Corinthians 3:5

Linda, oh gosh, that is so cute what happened to you. I'm so glad that it started pouring snow because IT MADE SUCH A NICE LITTLE ADVENTURE FOR YOU. Ooh hands touchin'~~~ oooh~~ ooh. Butterfly hurricanes indeed! Hehehe. I don't think it's one-sided, either, and I'm happy for youuuu, eep! <3

But anyway, I'll stop gushing about this dude of yours and gush more about your outfit! I love this so much, and on the first picture I was just like, "DAMN." Seriously. I said damn out loud. I don't do that much. This outfit does you so much gooood and I love those sparkly silver earrings.

Awwww I remember daydreaming about those moments when I first started dating my bf, is like you feel everything's right with the world cause you're almost certain he likes you back but there's still a bit of mistery, idk... Love this outfit, the skirt is so pretty and how you toned it down with the jacket and converse was brilliant

The texture and color of this skirt is so cool! I can totally see how it would give you confidence. And the guy is DEFINITELY into you. Not that I'm good at reading that kind of thing, but how could he not be into you?? :)

Your bum looks amazing!! I was sitting here staring at it for ages at least 2 full minutes.
I love a good body con and I have to check this site out- I'm always spending too much at once.
Very happy to hear the spark is two sided :DD -gave a little "yes" and a fist pump
Thank you for the comment- it doesn't matter how confident I feel it still knocked me a bit.

Ashley said...

LINDA!!!! Oh my goodness, this boy is crushing on you hard!!!! I love the way you shared this...I literally feel like you are one of my bff's and you are sharing this with me in confidentiality over coffee. Lady, you have a way with words!
I'm so excited for you and to see where this heads :) Such a sweet story and reminds me of when my boyfriend and I started dating almost 6 years ago (holy cow that seems like a decade ago!). There is something so exciting about the possibilities of a new relationship and the first sweet interactions that lead up to it!


I love the way you are wearing this bodycon. It is the perfect look for the day and I'm totally stealing this idea :)

AWWWW!
I did sequel a little in happiness for you dear! Butterflies at the begging of a relationship are so fun and it's exciting getting to know someone. (I do want to say that it does speak a lot to his character that he's taking it a little slow and moving at your pace, it means he really likes you and respects how you feel about the whole thing. That's the mark of a pretty decent dude.) Lol over werewolf and warming abilities, my husband's the same way, I swear his normal body temperature is 102. (But I'm always cold.) I know I keep saying it, but this flirtation is doing good things for you, you look SO happy right now!

On the fashion side, since I'll just gush all day with you over CG otherwise, I love how you dressed down this bodycon skirt! It has such a fun, offbeat-sexy look to it with the shoes and jacket. (I love bodycon skirts styled that way, it's more unexpected and it's got that girl-next-door sexiness to it. I think I get too use to seeing bodycon skirts styled only with bustier style tops so it's refreshing and fun to see it done a different way.) And spikes are always the perfect accessory!
