SLIDER

Summer Color Combo: Mint and Pink

Tank: c/o Electric Frenchie   Jeans: Aeropostale   Shoes: c/o My Hot Shoes   Necklace: c/o Estarer   Bag: Rue 21   


Its almost uncharacteristic for me to be wearing such a girly outfit, but man, I could not resist pairing my mint tank with ombre pink jeans. Tied together with floral wedges? My inner girliness could not say no to such a combination. Just another example of how often I like leaping in between styles! I never said my look was consistent...haha, who knows how I'll be dressing next. It all depends on my mood.

I wore this for a night out with my parents and some family friends. We headed to Sizzler, and I have to say, its been ages since we've eaten out. It felt positively bizarre to actually be served and not have it the other way around. I'm so used to working in the same sort of setting that it felt odd to be on the other side of the table. But it was definitely nice. I think we need to eat out more often!

Speaking of work, I've got an adorable story to share from about a week ago. 
You know, it seems as if my luck with younger boys is better than with guys that are actually my age.
One night at work, I was preparing to close and had started mopping the front of the store. A younger boy was playing with one of the machines nearby, and he started talking to me while I worked. He was a charming twelve year old with...well, there's simply no other term for it, but he had swag. 

He noted the donations box nearby, and asked, "You don't have a tip jar?"
"Nope, line attendants don't get one," I sighed. 
He looked thoughtful for a moment, and then came right next to me and slipped $3 into my apron pocket.
"Buy yourself some candy," he smiled up at me. 
That was probably the money he was supposed to use at the toy machines! 
He popped up again later when I was wiping down trays, and chatted with me for a bit. One of my co-workers came up at that moment to grab a drink and looked at my companion questioningly.

"I've got myself a little helper," I explained. 
To which my helper immediately started pantomiming wiping down trays. 
Al, my co-worker, played along and commented on how cute he was.
 "Linda's got a boyfriend!" he teased.
"I certainly do, and he's stinkin' cute!" I defended him.
"People tell me I look like Zayne from One Direction," my new boyfriend added.

And he definitely did. He even had a cool bad-boy name: Damion. 
Seriously? All the good guys are either taken, not interested, or the wrong age!

Haha, one of the sweeter moments from work that make long shifts bearable.

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.

Whoa, Linda, your ombre pants are so cool! I especially love that you cuffed them at the bottom. You're looking very cotton candy-esque today! Or just candy-like in general. Such bright, delicious colors ye be donning! :D

Haha oh gosh, how cute is that? I remember that little story from the Facebook. Well, I'm glad that you got some flirting from a little man that day. The polite ones are so hard to come across, haha! Sigh, that's adorable. :)

Marlen said...

Hahah awww, that is THE cutest story. i love how he told you to go buy some candy- such a little kid pick up line ;)and he clearly knows he's adorable, i mean, he looks like part of one direction! and i love your ombre pants, they are so cool!

and it's funny because everyone's been commenting that my voice sounds just as they imagined haha, you all know me so well ;)

zoë said...

hahahahah..that was a cute story!
if that guy is of the same age as yours, I bet you guys will really go along well.
too bad, he's not even a teen!
couldnt agree more with what you said, -taken, not interested, or the wrong age!

tsk tsk...

anyway, i love that you focused your prints on the shoes and your top & pants are blocked. pretty colors!

have a great weekend Linda!

Your story about that swaggaliscious kid made my giggle. Back when I was single, it always seemed that a guy who wasn't a jerk was unavailable or the wrong age or secretly nuts. I couldn't catch a break. So I feel your pain but hey, it does get better. :P

I was going to mention that this outfit, while cute, seemed a bit girly for your taste. But I love it nonetheless. Pink and mint is SUCH an awesome combo. :D

love,

Awwww, that has got to be one of the sweetest things ever! What a little man! :)

I never really thought about pairing mint with pink but it's really a stunning and bright color pairing! (It's pretty awesome with the ombre-ish jeans.) The scenery though, whoa, what a gorgeous place to take pictures. You have so many people spots around you, it must be really fun thinking of places to go take photos.
