Back to Warmer Days

Back to shorts time! I took these pictures to feature the shorts, but due to the sun, it's near impossible to tell the pattern. ...Just as well, I'll do another post with 'em in the future.



Cardigan: Q (9.99)
Shirt: H&M (7.46)
Shorts: Target (12.58)
Shoes: Old (Unknown)

I'm looking down in both of these pictures because of the sun. I hate how wearing glasses makes it impossible to wear sunglasses. First world problems...

Here's a fun story: I lost my phone the other day. I'm always misplacing my phone but I have never actually lost it. However, when I was driving back from Best Buy, I noticed that my phone wasn't in my purse. Cue panic. I thought about how likely it was that my phone was stolen when I was looking at tablets in Best Buy and I determined that it was very likely. If my bag had been open, all someone needed to do was to slip their hand in and take it. More panic. 

I drove home, though, to see if I had just left it there. I looked around all the usual places I would leave it but still, it was nowhere to be found. At this time, I really, really gave up. I checked my phone right before I left too... so if it wasn't at my house. It was gone. Until I went back out to my car and saw my phone on the ground, next to the tire. I guess it slipped out when I got into my car? 

I can't believe I was so lucky. Someone could have stolen it from the floor when I was gone. Someone (even me) could have ran it over with their car. I could have just not seen it. Counting my blessings.

  1. Oh hey, a picture of you :)! Yeah...IA. Also when it rains, glasses get all foggy or spattered with water :\ I would love to get Lasik but quite frankly, I have an irrational fear they'll laser through my head.

    And yeah! that was great luck finding your phone :) We usually forget to count up all the good things that happen to us ^_^

  2. Glad you found your phone. Because of their size, they're easy to misplace. I just found one on a train-seat that probably slipped out of someone's pocket. Of course I turned it in to the train-people who assured me it'd be easy to identify the owner.

    1. Oh, I forgot to mention your outfit! It's lovely. Beautiful combination of colors. And I envy your ability to wear shorts. I just tried some on and realized, yet again, I can't wear shorts. *sigh*

  6. Wow. That's a good story. I think there are more good than bad in the world though; most people would return stolen items. I left my entire purse - wallet, phone, expensive makeup and all - in a Target dressing room once. Two hours later, my purse, including everything inside, turned up at Customer Service. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside to know that someone out there was kind enough to not only reject stealing, but also take my belongings to a safe place.

    By the way, you look cute in those glasses. Bet sunlight in Arizona gets pretty harsh. (My husband used to live there :O) )

  11. Can't wait to see the pattern on the shorts! And you're so right, good thing you didn't run over your phone! I've dropped several things right next to my car, like monthly train passes. Or thought I lost my phone, but it was between the cracks of the seat in my car.

  12. The yellow looks so good on you! I could never pull that off, I'm too light. I panic when I loose my phone, too. It's a good thing you found it before anyone else did.

  13. I dropped my phone once and found it under the car. I can't believe I didn't run over it or that it didn't get stolen. Glad you found yours!

  19. Very pretty and love the colour! Glad your phone was okay, I hate the panic you feel when you think you've lost your phone. I have been down to have my phone in my hand, panic, wonder where the fuck it is and then transfer it from one hand to the other whilst checking pockets etc before someone informs me that it is in my bloody hand!
