Coral & Floral

Top: Forever 21  |  Skirt: Loft, thrifted  |  Belt: Forever 21  |  Wedges: Target (shop)  |  Bracelet: Thailand night market

I saw these items together in my laundry pile and thought that pulling out the pinks in the top with a coral skirt was a no brainer.  Almost a little too easy.  So I threw on a striped belt just to keep you on your toes.

Speaking of being on your toes, it looks like I've got my work cut out for me.  My co-worker told me that he took his 5 year old son to lunch and asked his son if he thought any girls were cute.  According to my co-worker, this is how it went:

Kid: Well, there's a girl, Caitlin, who I think is pretty.
Dad: Okay, who else?
Kids: --gets awkward, sheepish smile on his face and tilts head to side--
Dad: You wanna say Audrey, huh?
Kid: --gets more sheepish and nods yes--
Dad: Mm, of course.  Anyone else?
Kid: And there's another girl in class, Marilyn who has pretty blonde hair, and it's curly.  I like that.
Dad: So girls you think are cute: two girls in your kindergarten class aaannnnd Audrey?
Kid: --grins and nods--

People, I've got some competition.  You're gonna have to help me step up my game to keep up with these younger girls.

    It's getting pretty chilly where I live, so I'll enjoy the summery looks via your blog!

    Good luck with the 5 year old ;) You can always claim you can drive him to Chuckie Cheese! hahah

  2. Oh, Melissa, don't be fooled.  This outfit is from last week.  This week I've been in skinny jeans and questioning whether it's okay to wear boots yet!  GOOD TIP on the Chuck E. Cheese.  I'm gonna keep that in mind.  Ha.  :)

  4. Don't worry, I will!  I didn't take many this week because I've been so busy, which is also why my outfit posts are backed up from last week.  Little time to blog!  :)

  5. Bahaha. My neighbor has three boys and the youngest, when he was four, marched over in nothing but his undies and said, "YOU'RE HOT." And, on my 16th birthday, she was over dropping stuff off and he was in the car when she told him it was my birthday. His wishes were not for a happy birthday but, "I hope you stay smokin'!"

  10. Not only do Coral & Floral Rhyme Together, they also match beautifully in your outfit. That is my favorite top in your wardrobe that I have seen so far. I also love that skirt. I like that you broke it nicely with that stripped belt. =)
