What I'm Wearing: Sparkle Crazy

Hello, loves! Today I may have got a little sparkle crazy with my outfit, but sometimes a girl just needs to feel like a classy disco ball. Am I right? I paired silver metallic flecked shorts with an embellished tank, a simple blazer, bow and bling adorned flats and bow earrings. So my mom bought me these shoes the other day and I think they are so amazing.  It's hard to tell all of the details (see picture below) but they are a beautiful blue sparkly material with a gorgeous embellishment. Swoon. I loved them so much I knew I needed to build an outfit around it.


So this is random, but have you ever had a super awkward conversation with a semi-stranger? I had a doozy of one ther other day and this is how it went. Bear with me on this one.

Lady: "I think I know you from somewhere"
Me: "Oh really (thinking in my head, I do not even know who you are, lady) from where?"
Lady: "You went to _____ High School"
Me: "Yep, I sure did"
Lady: "You were a varsity cheerleader there"
Me: "Yes, I was" (thinking she just recognized me from football games or competitive cheer meets)
Lady: "You cheered with my daughter, 'Sally'"
Me: "I don't think so, there was no one on my team by that name"
Lady: "Yes you did, you used to come over and pick 'Sally' up for cheer practice all the time!"
Me: "Uhhh I really don't think so, you must have me confused with someone else"
Lady: (Getting irritated with the fact I don't know what she is talking about)
"Yes, you did. You just don't remember. I used to run a daycare and you would come over all   the time and hang out with Sally" 
Me: "I have never been to your house and I don't know your daughter" (At this point I am fearing for any children left in this woman's care)
Lady: "Yes you did, You just don't remember You and Sally were like best friends. She was a freshman when you were a senior" 
Me: "Uhhhhhh"
Lady: "You just don't remember"


....And that is how we left it. She was totally convinced that I somehow in the years I've been out of high school have totally forgotten friends I had or things I did. She was totally out of her tree, but I had no idea what to do in that situation.

Anyhow, that is my random story of the day.


Top: Forever 21, Blazer: Maurices, Shorts: Jennifer Lopez for Kohl's, Shoes: Nine West (gift)


What do you think of this outfit and my random story?

  7. The outfit's cute and not too sparkly (if there even is such a thing).

    Your anecdote is entertaining up to a point and then irritating. People should stop when they realize they're annoying someone. When you protested you didn't know her, she ought to have respected that. Her pushing on was rude. Sorry you had to face that.

    Instead of mulling over rudeness IRL, take a dip in the pool of love here among your online buddies!

  8. That's an odd conversation... especially because she was so convinced!

    I like this look though - cool and classic.

  9. Haha oh awkward conversations... I hate that feeling because then they think you're dumb like you don't remember people you hung out with! But at least you have a sparkly outfit, and that solves all awkwardness (well, it should).

  12. Wow what an awkward moment!!! It's hilarious that she'd keep insisting you couldn't remember your best friend that you spent all that time with, people can be so weird :D Love all your glam...it totally works because you've got flats, shorts, and a blazer on...the clothing style keeps it from being too much...instead you just look totally put together and rockin!

    And I love the sparkle. In my opinion there can't be enough sparkle. The blazer balances it out so well. Love it!!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
