Keep being awesome

Today I had a little "lie in" and didn't get up until after 11. I love doing that on the weekend. I should clarify that I was up around 6 to feed the monsters but then I went back to bed, slept a little longer, surfed the internet, read a bit, and finally got up when my desire for tea outweighed my need to be in bed.

I got up and went to my usual place for breakfast and then ran a few errands.

Cardigan: Pretty Things Boutique (last worn here)
Dress: anthropologie in Charlotte NC (last worn here)
Tights: ?
Shoes: Fluevog Presence | Impulse (last worn here)

At my breakfast place, I know most of the staff but there was a new young guy there today. I was sitting drinking my tea and he came up to me and said "I love those stockings."  Took me a little by surprise but no biggie.

He came back later and said "like your hair, I like your tattoos, I like everything about you. why don't I know people like you?"


I was quite flattered but if I'd told the owner she probably wouldn't have tolerated that type of behaviour.

Then when I left he said "keep being awesome!" Welll ok then!


Tonight I'm going bowling! It's a charity event for an animal shelter called Bowling for Critters. The let dogs bowl! I'm going to get terribly overdressed and drink in the bowling alley. Should be fun!


  1. I think that was so sweet that the guy was marvelling over your awesomeness! The fancy bowling with dogs and cocktails sounds like great fun - I think you should post a photo!

  2. Aww sounds like his intentions were good, but your coolness was just too much for the poor guy. Sounds like an awesome-pawesome event! Take pictures please!

  3. What an awesome breakfast - talk about a mood booster. But you do look fetching! I want to see your terribly overdressed outfit.

  4. That's really cute and sweet (though bordering on creepy? I guess it depends on context). You should have told him to look at your blog. :)

  5. Aaaw, he was being nice :)
    Hope you have fun at the bowling event- want to see photos of all that overdressing!


  6. New shoe header! Yes!
    You ARE awesome! That young man probably has a massive crush on you. Or he's gay. I don't know that many straight blokes who would comment on a strange woman's clothes or hair... But then I don't know many young men at all!
    Hope your over-dressed bowling was a fab night out. xxxx

  7. What a badass-sweet weekend look - love all the patterns, especially your marvy plaid tights.

  8. Hehehe such a sweet young man paying you compliments, you should take em to heart. :) Im sure he meant it all no matter what kind of game he has on :)

  9. What a great compliment! You should chat to him more - there are so few really interesting people in the real world.

    I want to steal your cardigan.
