Awkward and Awesome Thursday

Hello Thursday!
Let's talk awkward and awesome.
Awkward:
  • Filling up my car with things to take to the Goodwill drop off and when I got there, it was gone.
  • My mother's Mother's Day gift got lost in the mail.
  • When a new checkout lane opens and the checkout person motions for you to come on over and some yahoo cuts in front of you.
  • The person you are with is mistaken for you and you aren't recognized.
  • The sad stopping point of my self tanner in these photos!
Awesome:
  • Finding money on my daily walk with the dog.
  • Going out for ice cream.  I can't remember the last time we did that.
  • Free Redbox movies
  • A surprise visit from a BFF
  • The fabulous weather we have been having lately.
 
I love shorts and long sleeves or even a light sweater. 
 It looks so Ivy League. 
 Here I just paired my ikat button up with a pair of crisp white shorts. 
 I liked the idea of mixing shades of blue with the jewelery.

Did you have an awesome week or an awkward one?

I love your top! It's great paired with the white shorts.

That's so funny about the self tanner. I had a similar incident that Kayla so lovingly pointed out to me. Back to being pasty white for me :)

Love the print on your top. Shorts and long sleeves really do go well together :) Been gone for a while, so I'm trying to catch up!

No matter how hard I try, I always have awkward moments when it comes to self tanner. ;)

I love how summery your outfit is and the finished look the necklace gives it.

I still regret not getting this ikat print when I saw it... sigh. Maybe I'll find one this year! I agree with you, shorts and long sleeves are great!

I have a wedding to attend this weekend, so I'm think this week is going to awesome.

I am so sorry that your mother's gift was lost in the post office. That is so furstrating!
