Pink Kicks

I love mixing classic pieces with things that are totally out of the box. I wasn't planning on pairing these pink wedges with a tweed blazer when I came up with this combination, but I ended up loving how it looked weird/slightly crazy. I was planning on more of a grunge or sporty look when I thrifted these a couple of weeks ago, but I just can't stray completely from my instincts.



Have any of you found this girl's blog yet? I'm sure you have as she's one of my very favorites. Well, she and I thrifted pairs of velcro kicks around the same time and so she inspired me to wear mine the other day! They are totally different, as mine are hot pink...and ridiculous while hers are super cool charcoal high tops- but, eh I'll take what I can get. I even tried to get some sweet jump shots like she did (seriously, who looks that cute when they're jumping?!), but all I got was this one (of me yelling sparta or something? Idk...).
Anyway, I love these babies. Sean hates them, but that's ok, I hate some of his grubby t-shirts too so we're even :)





So, funny story. I have a male coworker at my job who yesterday when we were making small talk mentioned that he had to watch the bachelor on Monday nights. He knows all of their names and everything about it. He says he also watches bachelor pad and all of those silly shows. Am I nuts or is that just completely hilarious?! I've never heard of a guy even LIKING the show much less being so into it as this guy seemed. I got a good belly laugh out of it anyway. 

Well my darlings, dishes and laundry are calling my name on this day off of mine. I hope you have a happy day!
God Bless, 
KJA

1 Corinthians 13:1-3
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.  If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Guys who watch shows like that are the best. I have a guy friend who can quote mean girls better than most, and let me tell you, he is a most excellent person. ;)

Those wedges are something different, but it's good to try new things! I'm interested in seeing how else you style them, Katie! They're such a bright and pretty color :)

Those shoes are so fun! I like how different they are from your usual look. :) Sometimes it is fun to be a little crazy!

And I have to confess, I know not one, but TWO guys that watch the Bachelor. And I may or may not have the hugest crush on the one... :P Such a guilty pleasure show!
