A watermelon pencil

Knit shirt - JC Penney (a few years ago)
Bangles - thrifted
Skirt - thrifted vintage
Shoes - Jessica Simpson



Last night I went to go see a friend in the Chicago Avenue Project, which was super cute! They pair up local kids from the neighborhood with a professional playwright, and they write a short play! Then the child and a professional actor practice it for a few weeks then perform the show with costumes and sets and everything! My friend who is an actor volunteers to do it every year and it's fun to see! 

Sooo, I have a date tonight. A date with a younger man. It's official. I'm entering cougardom. Ok, ok,  so he's 27 and I'm 29... but still. I've generally dated guys who were 3-5 years older than me, so it's going to be strange. We shall call him Mohawk Boy (because at one point, he had a mohawk, I don't know if he does any more. And boy because, well, the cougar thing.) We are meeting up for a beer and to watch the Twins game but considering it's raining right now and supposed to stay that way all day and all night and all of tomorrow when it may turn into snow, I'm guessing the game will be canceled. Oh well. I was joking around last night with my friend Amber about how I am a cougar now, and as such this date can end in only one of two ways. 1.) Wild sex in the bathroom. 2.) I throw a drink in his face. Neither of these scenarios will actually happen, I assure you, which is why I am not, in fact, a cougar. Damn. So scenario three may occur... 3.) I will be really nervous on my way to the date, get the vapors, and fall in a sewer. Never to be heard from again.

I LOVE this outfit! Stripes and watermelon - who knew?! Have fun on your date: I wish that just once in my life I could throw a drink in someone's face...

I typically date guys 3-5 years younger than me....does that make me a cougar? Have fun on your date!

I hope the game isn't rained out and your date is fun! I like that skirt.

I threw a drink in a guy's face 10 years ago (he was being a total jerk; we were both drunk; it was at the Terminal Bar; nuff said) and he STILL hasn't forgiven me. So think twice before ever throwing a drink in someone's face, unless you can tolerate that person's drunken waves of verbal hatred for the next decade or longer. For the record, though, we were not dating (I shudder to even imagine such a thing with this individual).

Back to your outfit: It's got that color blocking thing going on, but the stripes give it a retro twist. The shoes look vintage-y too (nice work, Jessica Simpson). Very cute!

I'm excited about your date because you are adorable and funny so it will go very well indeed. Also I'm excited that someone else is a cougar with me! I'm 29 and my Gentleman is 26. But sometimes he feels like he's 84 so it seems to work out!

I love this outfit so much. It just screams runway. I'm surprised at the sandals being Jessica Simpson. Those are really cute. Goodluck on the date. Don't fall in any sewers. That might not be pleasant.

This is such an adorable outfit, possibly my favorite of yours thus far!
Hope your date goes well!

Chic on the Cheap

Oh lord, this was a combo made in heaven (the outfit...I don't know about the date).

It's nice to hear from a fellow style blogger that is on the 'prowl'. I wish you luck! I have thrown a drink in someones face. I was sober, he was not...it felt amazing but I don't think it's a good idea.

Kyla said...

This is supa' chic and way on trend right now. Get on with your bad self :)

I love the simplicity of this outfits, I would definitely would wear this, the only problem I'm too rectanglish? figured therefore I would not look as good as you, or maybe it's just that I don't feel that confident wearing pencil skirts.=)
