I Heart It

Jacket & Earcuff: Forever 21   Shirt: c/o August Wrinkle   Shorts: AE   Boots: Just Fab
This was an outfit that unintentionally drew attention to my legs. Apparently, at least, according to the passing guy who looked me up and down and said just that.
"Nice legs," he purred.
One eye brow raised, I laughed his comment off and continued walking. 
You know, when a guy tries to start something right off the bat with a line like that, all I can do is roll my eyes. The facade of that type of flirting is so transparent and clearly sends the message of the one thing on his mind. No interest in who I am or what I like, just that I have nice legs.
Well...ego boost at least, right?
Thanks, Mr. Blue Headphones. I appreciate it. 

Anyway, let's save that kind of topic for a Let's Get Real type of post, eh?
Besides that, I love this outfit! Whenever I wear an accessory that causes people unable to find a word to describe it, I love it even more. For instance, this ear cuff set from Forever 21. 
"That's an interesting...ear...thing?" was a sort of compliment I received while at school.
I can't wait to wear these to work!

I got my Red Cross Donor card in the mail! Looks like I'm O+ like my daddy. It feels good to have gone and finally donated blood. Last month, I was late to Printmaking class because I was lying on a gurney with blood pouring out of me into a nicely sized baggie. Haha, I was quite proud to have not passed out, and actually felt very stable and just fine afterwards. Although I couldn't look when the nurse stabbed me, or when he unstabbed me...I'll have to go in again the next time they do a blood drive at my college!

In other school-related news, I'm so relieved to have gotten through midterms! My gut feeling tells me I did really good, but I'd rather wait and see before I say anything definitive. Now I can finally relax!

Well, sort of...
I hated when everyone asked, "So, any fun plans for spring break?"
Um, yeah. Work, work, and let's see...oh yeah, work!
Haha, at least I don't have the added stress of school work and can enjoy my off time to do things I've been wanting to do. Such as sit down and read a few books! I need to pay my library a visit. I'm telling you, we have a decent one, and I can spend hours wandering down it's aisles.

This'll be my theme song next week:

An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
Proverbs 18:15
Pin It

This is a great look, one of those that I love. Glad you're thru your mid terms. Feel flattered with the "nice legs" comment, it's good for your ego and after all you're not planning on marrying the guy.
Have a great weekend hon.

Congrats on midterms Linda! Thats a cute compliment, I think sometimes thats the only way guys know how to start a conversation? Your legs do look amazing in this chic shirts ensemble and your hair really suits you worn this way. You are so brave to donate, i would pass out at the sight of a needle. It was great reading your comment...wishing you a wonderful and warm weekend!

Ali Hval said...

haahaha it totally IS an ego booster. And true, because ya do, lady. ;D Still kinda creepy when you're by yourself, but as long as they don't stop and try to chat it up then it's all good.

This is such a precious outfit! I adore the tights/shorts combo. :D And your hair always looks so so darling up in a ponytail!!

haha, well hopefully your working will go smoothly over spring break. I'm glad I don't have to stress over any schoolwork, either! I worked mah butt off to get everything done before the break so now I can just bike and paint freely... ahhh yes :D

Ruby Sterland said...

Cute blog! Love your jacket, and your sweater! x

Tokshop said...

Hi Linda, to answer your question, I don't use a tripod, someone takes my photos for me always.

Dez Offril said...

hahaha but i do agree with the man, very nice legs!! and loving that ear cuff!

Kati said...

I love those denim shorts, I have a similar pair and wear it all the time!
Also, adorable heart shirt!


Alexandra Zakharova said...

Yep, nice legs:) Some guys are just like that, they can notice a person’s physical appearance only, the real inner beauty means nothing to them. It's normal I suppose, because I do believe there is a soul mate for each of us and everyone will get a dose of own medicine someday.
Those photographs are adorable) You look super cute:)
Wish you a great day ahead!

Midwest Muse said...

What a pretty outfit! And I love that men yelling at girls is universal. I always wonder when it happens if that has EVER worked for them? I mean, there's no way, right?

And congrats on donating blood! I am too terrified to do so.

Also I'm right there with you on the work, work, work thing. Sure makes break a little less fun...
