SLIDER

Knee Knockers

Dress: Swaychic (old)   Jacket & Boots: thrifted   Tights & Bag: c/o Oasap   Hat: JcPenney   


When I saw one of my favorite bloggers, Lauren, wear these tights from Oasap, I knew I had to get them! I'd have to say that out of everything I've received from them, these are probably my favorite item yet. I mean come on, those adorable rows of hearts are just so cute!

This sequin t-shirt dress is an old win from a giveaway, and I'm glad I finally wore it before the snow fell (that's right, it's snowed now). These photos were taken before that happened. I have to say, snow is lovely and beautiful, but when you know you have to drive in it, your feelings start to change. I'm still not the most experienced driver, and we don't have our snow tires on yet. I've slid a couple times already, and those are always breath-holding moments where I mentally freak out inside. Thankfully, I've been able to maintain control of the car!

So remember that character known as Mr. Scruffy? The reason I haven't talked about him as often is because I wanted to let the memory of him fade. Turns out we're better as friends. While we get along alright, I know that as a boyfriend, I'm looking for something more serious than what he's after. We parted quite amicably, and I feel like a weight has rolled off my shoulders now that we talked and broke it off. Of course, it was up to me to even bring it up (he was never assertive and left all the decisions to me during the short time we dated), and I'm glad I did. It was definitely tough trying to work up the nerve to get into that talk...but thankfully, we were on the same page. After a couple months of seeing each other, I still didn't even feel like I was in a relationship. There was no real connection.

Anyway, just figured I'd mention that. If you worry I feel sad about it, don't be! I'm actually quite content with how it turned out and am happier now. I know what I want from a relationship, and by freeing myself from this, I'm opening myself up to real possibilities again.

Don't think you're being arrogant if you refuse to settle - it just means you know what you want.

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.

Those tights are SO awesome! I love them with the swaychic dress too. Such a pretty holiday look with them sparkles ;)

Also as always your wise words make me realize just how put together you are--not just outfit-wise! I think it's great that you broke it off because there was no real connection. So mature for both of you! AND YES I AM SO ABOUT NOT SETTLING, PREACH IT GIRL <3

Ahh, I love your dress! I am a sucker for gold and black and I almost bought a skirt the other day with the same kind of print - darn, I should have! And I just adore those heart tights and how you paired them with not so girly pieces, like the boho hat and the casual denim jacket. It looks great!

And I totally agree with the comment above mine - you are no silly girl!

Aw, well I'm glad that the parting between you and Mr.Scruffy was at least a friendly one. With your charming personality and striking good lucks, I'm sure there will be tons of other dudes a knockin' at your door soon enough, Miss Linda. :) No worries to that! But I'm glad you're not sad about it at all. You're just a practical, smart lady, and I love that about you. <3

Man, this dress is gorgeous on you, and I am loving those super cute tights as well. You sure know how to style an outfit and look fancy!

Fantastic tights, they had such a great effect to your glam boho outfit, this dress is the prettiest, I like that you dressed it down with denim and boots. Thats okay, some guys are really better as friend material and boyfriend material....I loved reading your fashionable insight on my last post, Thank you :)

I love how the hearts on those tights hit about the knee and kind of look like they are tattooed on.. reminds me of those tattoo choker necklaces back in the 90s that I always wanted

Adorable, quirky, cute, and scintillating. I love this outfit, m'dear. The hearts on the tights are the best part for me, personally.

I was wondering what happened to Mr. Scruffy. I'm sorry it ended the way you didn't want but I'm glad you got it figured out, ya know? Better to know now than years down the road.

love,

"Don't think you're being arrogant if you refuse to settle - it just means you know what you want." -This is so true. I realized the same thing after few weeks of getting-to-know-someone.

Oh man, I've been wanting these tights for a while but I was worried they might not be the best quality and run after one wearing.(I suppose I should ask how they are in person, do they seem like they're holding up well?). Sorta sad to hear about mr scruffy but at the same time I'm really proud of you and amazed at how smart you are in your love life. You're going to be one of those lucku chicks who ends up with an amazing guy who just adores you.;)
