Pinkberry Crush

Top: American Eagle   Cardigan: (thrifted) Express   Jeans: Target   Boots: Payless   Beanie: Target   Sunglasses: Philippines

 
 
 


The beanie came off halfway through the shoot, mainly because I wasn't too sure of it, although I'd worn it for the majority of the day. Haha, I'm sure it'll be making a reappearance in future outfits though. I love the casual touch it can add to any outfit!

Also, give this girl a hand - I finally wore jeans that are not from American Eagle! Although this time, my top is from them. What can I say? I have a crush on their clothes. The cut outs on the back totally won me over when I spotted it on the clearance rack. Tie that in with an amazing bright pink hue? I tried it on and had trouble taking it off.

So...these CG tales have been garnering quite the sweet comments, and I love reading them - thanks for all the encouragement girls! Although I also want to let you know that these moments I share are centered around the sweet side I see in him. The majority of the time, I also see/hear the rough edge in him that's completely different from my ex. He's not clean cut, he's not a sweet-talker, and he's for the most part, your typical college boy. But maybe it's this utter difference that makes me intrigued. I keep wanting to box him away into a stereotype, but he continually surprises me with new, contradicting quirks that make it impossible for me to pin a label to him.

He's got this awkwardly-adorable charm to him that makes me laugh too. He's not slick, there are often some awkward silences between us, and he says such random things to try and fix this. Trust me, these have led to the some of the most bizarre conversations I've ever had!
I just wanted to share this so you would know how it really is! It's not always butterflies and fuzzies that you might be imagining from the bits that I share (although those do make up a good portion of it).

Its real life, but I think overall, I'm living a pretty wonderful one.

Its filled with awkward moments, loud laughs, stressful late nights, fantastic friends, tiring hours at work, and these crushes that make a girl eager for her next class with that boy.

And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?
Luke 12:25-26

"want to box him away into a sterotype"--omg, lol, that is the PERFECT phrase, Linda. But I'm glad he's not falling into any bad stereotypes and that he's got that awkward, cute, kind of vibe on the side of everything else. I feel like that lets you know you're seeing the real side of him! I'm glad that everything is going well, bizarre conversations and all! :D

Hehe, but I really do like the touch your pink hat added. I tend to do that a bunch, too--taking an accessory or hat halfway off and deciding the outfit is better off without it perhaps. It can be hard to decide these things! But I think yuo look cute cute either way. <3

ALSO. No American Eagle jeans?!?! gurl what is happening

What a great way to style printed jeans, I love it! I hadn't considered the floral denim trend before but seeing how fab is looks on you I am changing my mind. Love the bold shade of your top and the pretty back detailing. Thanks for your honesty, I can imagine it isn't sunshine and roses all the time but thanks for sharing those sweeter moments with us :)

Saying anything to fill the silence is a good indication that he adores talking to you! Sounds like a sweetheart, even if he is a bit rough. :)

I love the pink shirt paired with the red beanie! The color mix is so nice. I've always loved that verse too, what a great reminder-we can all do ourselves a favor and take that to heart.

Shop Style Conquer said...

the beanie was great though lol >.<. I also dont think there's anything wrong with wearing a lot of thing from the same brand haha (Im sure i would if we had American Eagle here).
I really love hearing your stories about CG, i feel like its this little story with little bits revealed each time I visit.
And aw awkward charm is the best (I hope my awkward comes across as awkward-charm).

Love this outfit! That top adds such a nice pop of color! And you describe crushes very well, how it's not always butterflies, sometimes it's awkward too! But that means he must like talking to you to keep the conversation going, even if it's random! Sometimes random conversations are the best! :)

Mili said...

I actually think the beanie looks great with the look! They're the same color, but the shades are different enough to be worn together. It drives me crazy when things are almost the same color... but aren't. Hopefully that made some sort of sense hahaha. Basically I think the top and beanie have enough of a difference that they look cute together :)

Great style ! Your beanie is very cute :)

Katie Q. said...

Oh, I love this pair of jeans so much, it's fun seeing how versatile they are! I love this pattern, the white flowers are so striking on the black background, the floral pattern has more of tough than sweet look to it. (The bright top is really fun, it brightens the whole look up!)

It's so awkward when you're trying to get to know someone but it does sound like CG has been a good distraction for you! (And sometimes it's just really nice to have someone to flirt with you, especially right after a relationship.)
