Circle Sunnies

Top & Shorts: American Eagle   Sunglasses: Old Navy   Sandals: Target   Bag: Rue 21   Necklace: c/o Estarer

I never thought I could be the girl to pull off these John Lennon-esque pair of sunglasses, but never say never! I wore this casual ensemble for a day spent with my close friend Kirsten. She'd just come back from a week long trip to Arizona, and what a nice vacation she had! So of course, as soon as she got back and we had free time, I roped her into joining me for a day on the town.

That was about a week ago, but I'm just now getting these photos...I mean, I have so much other stuff I want to post about now, that I've started having outfit photos pile up in my draft folder!

Anyway, yesterday, I met up with some old high school friends and we had a blast at the nearby lake. We grilled hamburgers, caught each other up on our lives, and shared many, many laughs. Oh, and screams, because we were near water, so obviously there was rough housing and wrestling competitions involved. Sadly, I lost the war and was shoved in multiple times. I've got no upper body strength, really. It was funny, because I was fighting my friend Jesse and he randomly spouted out, "Oh, you smell really good."
Like, what? Haha, however, I did leave a mark since as I tumbled back into the water my nails clipped him in the stomach. So yes, I literally left him with a scar. Perhaps its time I should trim my claws, eh?

Afterwards, we piled into the pickup, drove to Fred Meyers to grab junk food, and watched The Proposal at his house. By the end of the night (er, early morning?), it hit us how we were all going our separate ways in the fall. Kevin would be heading back to Colorado, Jesse is leaving for College of the Ozarks, Kelsie is busy working full time, and the only ones going to the local college is Amarius and I. It was sad but sweet as we hugged goodbye, unsure of when we'd see each other next.

What's lovely about our unusual friendship is how easy it is to pick up where we left off. We hadn't seen each other since last Christmas when we met up over break. So until our next hang out, I can smile and think back to how we all leaped off the docks, holding hands, mocking the many movie endings we'd seen that ended on such a note, and coming up gasping for air and laughing about how ridiculous we all looked.

"oh, you smell really good"--GIRL HE WANT THE BOOOOOOOTY.

Okay, that might be a stretch considering I know nothing about your friends and their personalities LOL LOL okay moving on shh shh Ali mind your own business shh

aw, but it's always nice to have those friendships where you just pick right up where you started, no matter how long you've been apart! I only know a few people like that, but it's still nice, so very nice!

Man, your sunnies really are rad! They top of your outfit excellently. Round sunglasses are your thing, Miss Lovely Linda!

Have a great day,

The sun spotting through the trees into those perfect little circles is just such a gorgeous picture. Reminds me if your round sunnies.

Aww, Linda! You pulled off those sunglasses so well! This is one of my favorite looks of yours--that orange top is so pretty and that necklace is perfect. Eee, reminds me of the hunger games! These photos ini the woods are stunning too!

Ahh, it makes me so happy to hear your had a good time. It's reassuring that friends can just pick up where they left off--it makes me feel so much better.

Hehe, yep. The photo pileup problem. I feel like we're either reeeaallly behind on posting or super ahead...never any happy medium, huh?

Have a beautiful week, dear Linda!

I'm totally into circles glasses too. My aunt gave me vintage pair a few months ago and like you, I was little unsure about them - but they've actually become a favorite. And your glasses look perfect on you! So fun.

Glad you had such a fun day with your pals, those memories are always the best.
