A Casual Stroll

When the weather starts to warm, I start to gravitate towards the water. There's just something so relaxing about it.

Thank you to all of those who submitted This or That questions. I apologize if I didn't get to your question - I have them all saved though for next time!

1. Heels or Flats - submitted by Kristina and Lara
Heels. I love the way they look, I love that they make my short legs look just a bit longer, and I love that they make an outfit look instantly classier. However, if there's a lot of walking involved, my vote goes for cute comfy flats!

2. White Wine or Red Wine - submitted by Jenee
Well, I have to admit... I'm not a big wine drinker. Don't hate me! They just instantly make me want to cuddle in my bed and go to sleep. But if I had to pick one, I choose white. My alcoholic beverage of choice? Good old fashioned beer.

3. Fruit Salad or Chocolate Cake - submitted by Kathleen
Chocolate cake all the way!

4. Gold or Silver - submitted by Maiken
Right now, I'm all about gold. Although, my most prized pieces are all silver (my engagement ring, wedding band, and my Yurmans... all really special gifts from my husband).

5. Online or In Store - submitted by Makaila
I'm an in-store kind of gal. I love being able to see the colors, feel the fabrics, and try on the clothing. Unless it's a store with sizing that is always spot on, I feel better about in store shopping. Plus, it's a good way to get some "me" time!

6. Hunters or Louboutins - submitted by Coco
This is by far the hardest one of the bunch! I actually don't own any Louboutins, but I have always wanted a pair. They are on my list. I do really love both of my Hunter Boots and wear them all the time. If it's which I would wear more often, it'd probably be Hunters. If it's which I would love and treasure more, it'd be Louboutins.

7. Channing Tatum or Ryan Gosling - submitted by Evani
Ryan Gosling. I can't seem to take Channing seriously, plus I like Ryan's movies better!

8. Gifts or Surprise Notes - submitted by Elsha
My husband knows the answer to this. Gifts. We rarely leave each other notes unless it's me telling him to pick up his socks or him telling me not to forget my lunch. But he knows the way to my heart and that's gifts. Just keeping it real!

9. Cats or Dogs - submitted by Kaitlin
Dogs. I'm actually not a fan of cats (no offense to all you cat lovers), they sort of scare me. I'm convinced that when I was little I was stalked by a group of crazy cats. My husband thinks that was a made-up memory. Regardless, I'm a dog person.

10. Early rise or Sleeping in - submitted by Dina
I am for sure an early riser. I would love to sleep in, but my body always wakes me up at around 7am even on the weekends.  Then I start making a lot of noise "by accident" so that my husband wakes up too and we can start our day.

What did you guys think, did you like this type of Q&A?  If so, I'm happy to do more of them every once in awhile - keep submitting your This or That and I'll put together a post whenever I have enough questions.

Also, don't forget to vote for me in StyleMint's Style for Your City contest. I appreciate all of your support!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Fun facts! I also prefer dogs and am an early riser. I would love to sleep in and sure wish I could. Something about getting older has made it so I just can sleep in any more! Have a great weekend!

Fun post Yi-chia in getting to know a little more about you. I wished I could drink any alcohol but my body has such low tolerance with it. I turn bright red and my body starts to itch after a sip! Back in my younger days it was not bother, but I can't do it now. Love this fun casual outfit!

I loved this little Q&A. It was fun to get to know more about you :) Cats scare me too! Haha. Love your bright colored tank and that pretty necklace. I always want to be near water when its warm too! Too bad I don't live near the ocean :(

Ricademus said...

All we need now are leaves on the trees! Today is overcast here, but the temperature is great--the last two days were actually too hot (91 on Wednesday).

I think this is a great way to do a Q&A post--no clunker Q since they're only things people wanted to know. I'm with you on the chocolate cake and no wine.

Have fun this weekend!

You look so cute! I need those shoes. It makes me feel like summer is actually coming!

Also, thanks for answering my question! Haha I love peoples' fear of cats. I get it though. They can be fairly sinister looking. My cat thinks he's a dog so I'll keep him :)

Rebeca Muñoz López said...

I like the glasses and shoes are comfortable.


what.jess.wore said...

You look so pretty and comfy in these photos! Those wedges are so cute and I wouldn't have guessed that they were from ON. :) I'm allergic to cats and I was afraid of dogs after being chased and scratched by my neighbor's hyper chihuahua when I was little. It always knew that I was skittish around it. I wasn't completely comfortable with dogs until my cousin got two and then I was convinced that they are friendly and cuddly after all.

This was so much fun to read. I couldn't stop laughing at the part about crazy cats stalking you! To this day I am terrified of ducks, chickens and birds because my very first nightmare when I was 4 years old was me running around in circles being chased by those a duck and a chicken.
