Mint Musings

Tee: American Eagle   Jeans: Mossimo   Cardigan & Bag: thrifted   Necklace: Rue 21

I was inspired by Morgan of Mojomade to try this hairstyle. I didn't have as much time to fishtail the braids, so I did normal ones, but it still worked. It turned out pretty cute in my opinion!

So, this is what I wore for my coffee date. In fact, Corina took these for me right before I headed over to the coffee shop to meet Mr. Adorably Scruffy himself. This time around, I feel like I'm really starting off by showing him who I am. We talked about a lot of different things, occasionally falling into lulls of silence. He seemed shocked to discover how I'd capture lizards as a little girl and how well I knew my Pokemon (I know you'd approve Ali...haha, yes, we discussed Pokemon, and he still has his holographic cards). He was smiling in a pleasantly surprised way and commented how, "you're like the girl version of me."

As the sun sunk lower in the sky, we walked back up to the park area, and he spotted the swing set that was nearby.
"Do you like swings?"
"Of course, who wouldn't?"
So yes, for the next hour we played on the abandoned playground, went down the slide, and took advantage of the empty swing set as we casually talked.

All I can say is that I had a fun time reliving my childhood on that playground with him.

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

I love the braids! The mint pop of colour looks great with the rest of the outfit! xx

Maiken said...

you will not find out if it works or not when you don't try. so I definitely think you should give it a go and see what happens :) if you don't try you will probably just regret afterwards and that's never a good feeling.
by the way, those mint accents are awesome! and I can see you're wearing your favourite tee again ;)

Samantha said...

Oh my, almost forgot. Thank you for your comment on my last post, I was unsure as to whether or not to do it, so thank you!

OrigamiGirl said...

That sounds utterly lovely and it makes me smile so much to hear. It's a little bit wonderful to hear a similar story, but my first date with my now-husband six years ago was when we went for pancakes and then decided to spend the rest of the afternoon in a playpark. So I can only recommend it as the best place to form relationships!

Nicole Aguinaldo said...

Wow so stunning!! :) Plus the outfit is so cute! Love your blog :)

Btw, I liked your facebook page, dear! :) Hope you like back <3

Those bright blue pieces are so eye-catching and cool. And your hair looks so fantastic like that (but I guess I always love your hair :D). So enjoy and appreciate the shot of those amazing legs. Always brightens my night :) And so glad to have you stop back by my blog. Low-self-esteem me was worried I had bored and/or annoyed you into fleeing. He is not that brightest of fellows :) So lovely, dear!

Sam said...

Hi Linda, we really need a hairstyle tutorial look beautiful! This minty shade is so fresh and looks pretty on you. Thats so sweet, I think its a great compliment if someone said 'you're the girl version of them', it means they can relate to you on a very personal level moreso than with anyone else....Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me, wishing you a good start to the new week!

Annie said...

POKEMON SHOUT OUT YEEEEE!! Bahahahaha, I love how you always link me to that... just as how I always link you to it. Man, if I can ever bake you a cake, I'm baking you a pokeball cake. That was utterly random but I think you needed to know it. :)

Swings, pokemon, and coffee shops... and scruffy face... hmmm,hmhmmhm this sounds like a grand opporunity for you, Miss Linda! I can't wait to hear more. Don't doubt yourself, because you're an AMAZING LADY with a stunning personality and any dude would be glad to call you his ladypartner.

Onto your outfit... your braids are stunning, stunning! I seriously love that hairstyle. I wish mine was long enough to style that way! *__* I also dig the mint. That necklace is so lovely!

Okay, so, so cute. I love that he knew his pokemon and he just sounds like an around adorable dude. :)

I really like how you did your hair her, the wrap around braid with the other loose is really pretty and different! I'm sort of wishing I hadn't chopped mine off now, this looks so pretty.
