hide and unseek.

i totally forgot about these shoes.
i bought them a little while ago and had to,
uh...hide them from scrutizining eyes.
so i shoved the bag in the depths of my laundry basket,
which really just holds stuff, not dirty laundry.
guess out of sight, out of mind, because i truly forgot about them until i was looking for a shirt that might have
actually been in said laundry basket.

had a delicious lunch today consisting of laksa, new york cheesecake, and sparkling lemonade.
this link gives you a general description of laksa, but every restaurant has a slightly different version.
wish i took a picture, but we were too hungry!

happy aloha friday, all!

cheesecake...my favorite
(shoes, nordstrom; carrie cargo pant, available at oomph; top, f21)

Love this outfit! Especially the necklace. You have some pretty fantastic jewelry, I must say.

And I am on the same boat as you, sometimes I have to hide my purchases from scrutinizing eyes too, lol

Looove those wedges, they're really pretty. I hate when I hide things and forget about them. I usually end up destroying my whole house in order to find it again. I really like the way you did your hair too!
Sounds like a verrry tasty lunch

the laksa sounds delicious...I'm wondering about the likelihood of finding it in the middle of the USA. The shoes are too nice to forget! And I like the braid!

Juanita said...

Fantastic casual-chic outfit. It is a very fetching look on you (one I'm inspired to "try on" when Summer rolls around)!

Those shoes are marvellous. I adore wedge heels, and those look particularly comfortable AND stylish (I hope they really are as comfortable as they look...shoe nirvana!) :-)

Bonnie said...

Those shoes are amazing. They look really comfortable, and they seem to go with quite a few outfits. It's amazing when you can find a versatile pair of shoes like that. Plus, wedges are usually more comfortable.
P.S. SO JEALOUS of those hot cargo pants. I am still looking for my perfect pair.

Fashion Confessions of a Mommy said...

Very cute shoes. So who were you hiding them from!? Is your daughter same size as you? The day I started wearing my mom's size she had to guard all her shoes!
That 'laksa' looks yummy.
I love the big necklace over that top. And your hair braid is so cool. I really wish I was more crafty with braiding.

Baby Budget Blog said...

Ahhahahahaha!! I do the same EXACT thing! What's worse is when the BF finds my hiding spot and I'm like: 'Oh, yeah, forgot about those' and then have to give him a sheepish grin. Great bottom of the laundry basket find. Mine is usually under my bed, in my trunk, conelled in winter coats etc.!

Adorable shoes! I am not a fan of espadrilles, most of the time, but these look really chic and totally my style! I love the peep-toe detail! :)

I've never had Laksa before. Actually, I've never even heard of it before. It looks absolutely delicious though! And spicy! Oh man.... Mouth watering alert!
