Pattern Play

Sunglasses: Romwe via Latex Catsuit   Hat: c/o Oasap   Shoes: Just Fab
"What do your sunglasses say??" my dad asked in disbelief.
I chuckled and stood still so he could read the frame.
"That's disgusting!"

Haha, I personally think they're cheeky. I remember when I saw fellow blogger Mary Kate wear these sunnies, and immediately wishing I had them. So when Latex Catsuit offered me a coupon to Romwe, I jumped at the chance. They made for a fun twist to a fairly casual outfit. That and these shoes from Just Fab! I've been noticing the lace up style and wanted a comfier alternative to heels. Hence, wedges!

You know how I mentioned having fun experiences throughout the summer? Well, here's a new one. Last Friday, I tried cow tongue for the first time. I've been hanging out with a new guy friend lately (yes, mom, he's just a friend), and he introduced me to this little hole in the wall Mexican place that has the best authentic food in town. As I perused the menu tacked up next to the "Order Here" window, my eyes widened at some of the taco selections.

"Does that say tongue!?"
When we went up to order, he placed ours together and added, "Oh, and one lengua taco."
Apparently, I was going to try it. Haha, so I did, despite the appearance of taste buds in the meat, and overall, it was chewy...but wasn't too bad. I just couldn't think about what I was eating.
"I'm honestly surprised you ate that..." he said in disbelief. "I didn't think you'd do it."

So I can cross that off my list.
Cow tongue? Check.

If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless.

Hi Linda, can't tell you how much I adore this outfit, I am inspired to wear it myself...its totally my style, love those shoes! Thanks for sharing your opinion with me. Wishing you a warm and wonderful weekend!

Ah...I used to order that when I went to a specific taqueria spot in SF all the time. I'm actually going there tonight! haha. How ironic!

April Cheung said...

LOVE the striped top paired with those gorgeous heels!

Ali Hval said...

hahaha, oh those dads. ;) Those are some seriously neat sunnies though, Miss Linda. I like how you've got such quirky accessories. They really add something to an outfit, don't they? From far away, they almost look like the ends of batteries. I'm not sure why I made that association.

So... you ate tongue. Was it anything like french kissing? HAHAHA okay sorry. But yay you for trying new foods. ;)

I'm glad you're makin' some new friends! It's nice to be able to meet a guy and just be friends with him. I'd like some guy friends. I thought I met one the other week but then things got suddenly weird. It's sort of disheartening, hahaha.

Have a wonderful weekend, LINDA MY LVOE!!! LOVE! Love. <3

Kati said...

Nice shoes and I love the stripe shirt.

My word, what an amazing pair of sandals. They go very well with the other patterns at play here -- the fact that they're all neutrals makes it even better. ^_^

Cow tongue? Er, um, yeah. I don't have much to say about that. ;)
