Outfit // Chiffon & The Art of Coffee Dates

For the past several days, the weather has been pretty beautiful. It has been really nice to finally break out some of my warmer weather clothing, like skirts and sandals! Today, however, I woke up to rain. Rain. You can imagine my disappointment, even though I am well aware that California desperately needs any water it can get. So, today is not one of those days, but I am hopeful that actual summer weather will return soon! Especially since I have a new bathing suit on the way :)

Sunday was one of those lovely days and we took advantage of it by venturing to the downtown area near our house to shoot some photos and have a coffee date! I must say, not too long ago, Dai was really bad at coffee dates. Of course, he was always great company, but he just wasn't very good about being patient while we sat together and drank our coffees. He was ready to quickly move on to the next activity and didn't understand why we couldn't just get out of there. Boys. They just don't get the art of coffee dates! I like to take my time and chat or even have a "working" coffee date where we each work on our own projects while we enjoying each other's company. But now... But now, he is much better at it! We can stay for a while, talk, and spend some time working on our things. I love going for coffee with him, and now it is even better :)outfit, style, retro, vintage, casual, girly, forever 21, gap, target style, sandals, ootdoutfit, style, retro, vintage, casual, girly, forever 21, gap, target style, sandals, ootd
This particular outfit seemed like the perfect match for our slow Sunday. Lately I have been loving this soft pink chiffon skirt because it is so feminine and light-weight! It flows so nicely and you'll never believe where/how much I got it from--on sale at the Gap outlet for $6!! I know! Pretty crazy. There was also a grey one, so you know I definitely snagged that one too ;) outfit, style, retro, vintage, casual, girly, forever 21, gap, target style, sandals, ootdoutfit, style, retro, vintage, casual, girly, forever 21, gap, target style, sandals, ootd
I have always liked hats, but this one is particularly special to me. It is just so classic and versatile. I stop myself from throwing it with nearly every outfit. To be honest, Dai doesn't even really like it! What?! Like, how could you not just love this hat? He says its embarrassing when I wear it because people look at us, and I'm just like "Don't you like being with that girl that's getting all the head turns?" ;) But really, he told me that he didn't think it went with this outfit and I told him he's crazy because it goes with EVERYTHING. And I'm pretty stubborn, so there's that :)outfit, style, retro, vintage, casual, girly, forever 21, gap, target style, sandals, ootd
On a different note, I'm still loving these gold glitter sandals! I think these babies are going to take me pretty far. Also, it's nice to wear a simple, comfy t-shirt sometimes and I really like how they (and a jean jacket) can add a level of casualness to balance out a fancier piece, like this skirt.

It has been pretty fun putting together more outfit photos lately and I hope you all have enjoyed it! I have been exploring my style a bit more and really trying to add pieces that fit into it better. I don't know, I guess I just like all the things! There aren't any rules, right? ;)

So, one bummer that happened last weekend was that Dai and Marly were in a car accident. They are both fine and the crash itself was fairly minor, but Dai's car looks pretty bad and we aren't sure yet if the insurance company will want to fix it or total it. Either way, though, it is kind of sad because Dai loves his little, bright yellow car :( I guess it just may be time to move on!

At any rate, it's been a fairly good week so far! There's been some time to relax, I went out for a girls night with friends, I've taken a few walks with my Marly, I've caught up on The Bachelorette (it just gets worse and worse, but I still watch it), Pretty Little Liars is back, work has been more mellow than it has been the past month, and we are going out with one of our favorite friends tonight! And the weekend is already filled with fun plans!
