aloha style:: thunder alley




lace headband:: {whippycake}
top:: {town and country surf shop}
jeans:: {forever21}
sandals:: {payless}
bag:: {navy exchange, bueno}





Last night, before we went out on our hot bowling date, I asked Chris if he liked my headband. He said something along the lines of "We're going bowling, you're allowed to look ridiculous."

....

....

....

Thanks, babe.

I have to give him credit. He's getting much better at taking my outfit pictures. You should hear him directing me. Stand like this. That looks awkward. Smile bigger.


Last night he says " Let's get a detail shot--are you wearing a fancy belt?"

Nope.

"No fancy belt?? What about one of your big rings?"

Nope.

Hm, ok, we'll just take an awkwardly close shot of your headband.




 Ruh-roh. Gutterball.




I lost both games, by the way. In case you were wondering. Oh, and I broke a nail. But at least I got to wear snazzy shoes.

Linking up with What I Wore Wednesday

PS. I wasn't lying about my next obsession being colored jeans. I'm infatuated.

  1. I really like your whole outfit!
    I would love to try colored jeans, but I'm pretty sure I'd look even more like a 12 year old then I already do!

  13. I love that you think outside the box and pair unlikely colors together...I would have never though purple and green, but it really works! :)

    P.S. We went bowling when I was in CA last month and I did horribly. I barely bowled a 65. You think I'm kidding... ;)

  14. Coming atcha from WIWW. I'm SERIOUSLY loving this outfit!. I LOVE colored jeans but i'm not brave enough to wear them. You look SO unreal in them though and just may have inspired me enough to give me that little push to perhaps try on a pair. Thanks :)
    Following you for a while now and love your blog :)

  16. Looove the colors! And that's totally something my husband would say...then would have no idea hwy I was looking at him like he was crazy. haha

  17. I don't know why, but that sentence about taking an awkward shot of your headband cracked me up!

    I've come to realize in the last couple weeks (after 15 yrs with my guy) that it really is true that men and women have really different ideas of what "looks good"! I always ask him about what I'm wearing, hair styles, etc. and if he says, "Eh...it's not my favorite." and I ask my sister, she'll love it. Every time. Hmm...and yet I still keep asking him! Ha!

  18. I agree, I think I might become obsessed with colored jeans too. I saw a pair very similar to the ones you have on at Macy's this weekend and I think I'm going to back to purchase them ASAP.

    You look adorable and I love that your man takes your outfit pictures.

  19. I love your style! I could never wear that much color but you pull it off and always look GREAT!
    And that is such a great picture of you two....you two make the cutest couple;)

  20. I have always stuck to plain old jeans but now you have me wondering about owning a brightly colored pair :) Your style is inspiring!

  23. hello lindsay. Totally off topic but since you are a lover of Etsy have your heard of Heartsy? It is a groupon for Etsy, so you spend $9for a 21 dollar voucher and get a bunch of stuff for a great deal. :) It's how I feed my Etsy additon and don't live in my car.
