Outfit of the Week - Aztec & Green

So, I got holla'd at the other day. It has been a long time since that has happened (oh, when I was about 16 and my friends and I hang out at the mall for fun) so it stuck out to me. It also stuck out to me because um, the boy who holla'd was around 15. And no, I was not wearing this outfit. I was wearing leggings and a t-shirt while walking my dog in the park. I didn't say anything, I just ignored it and kept walking, but he persisted: "hey girl, come over here and talk to me." I completely ignored him but I really wish I would have said something witty and made him feel silly.

"You're on track to become a predator, kid."
"I'm 26 and have been married for 4 years, so you are promoting infidelity."
"Ew."

Luckily for the kid, I am the most non-confrontational person ever. So I just kept walking and thought about the fact that he was far enough away to not notice my stray gray hairs and slowly appearing eye wrinkles. Oh guess, what? He also kind of made me feel good. I've still got it, yo. Whatever it is :)

  1. I would have been flattered, too. Sure, he was 15, but hey, you must have looked hot for him to make such a fool of himself. Although 15-year olds rarely need an excuse to embarrass themselves. I'm not sure where I'm going with this. Oh yes: You've still got it! Woot! :) I love the turquoise jeans with the Aztec cardigan. Love! I just discovered you lovely blog through a link-up...I'm so happy to now be following along!

  12. I love this cardigan! You look so cute. That is hilarious about that guy. I was walking down the strip in Vegas (by myself) heading back to the hotel after shopping, and this young guy yelled 'Hey! Are you alone?!" Creeper. I practically ran back to the hotel.

    1. Hahaha! Um, I don't know how he didn't realize that asking someone if they're alone is a HUGE red flag!? Vegas is so fun but it can also be so terrifying!

  15. Oh man, kids these days... I think you made the right choice to ignore him, but if I was in that situation I would be tempted to have a witty comeback too, like "Sorry I don't babysit" or something :D

    That sweater is lovely, and goes so well with your green pants!

  17. Yeah, it's a weird feeling - half creepy, half ego-boosting. But yes, you do still have it! And this outfit is fabulous. Love the combo of colors and prints. You're making me think I need green jeans. :)

    1. You definitely need green jeans, Amanda! I don't know how, but I swear they go with everything :)

      And yes, it's a weird feeling. I hated that it made me feel a LITTLE bit good, but it's the truth!

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
