13-year-old "couples" are hilarious.

Dear friends! Howdy, hello, you know the drill! I was mentally scrummaging through old photos - MAN THERE ARE A MULTITUDE - and I figured it was time to post. And the rest was history... Not really. But I'm posting now. Because I have a lot of pictures to post. (And so the circle of Lexy's rambles begin...) Particularly since this number boasts BARE legs, a concept that has been struck foreign due to blistering winds and chilly weather and general winterisaroundthecornerness. I.e. Yeah, welcome to an outfit that was worn awhile back! Hip hip hooray! But whatevz, brah. Vintage is in. Or something. Okay, awkward-ness still exists, so I'll just power on...

As you, dear stalkers - ahem, regular readers (LUV U), are well aware (i.e. refer to, um, every outfit post, pretty much), I have the tendency to overwear these dear flowers. As in every day. As in, "Wow, Lexy, you really like those flowers" - voice in my head (I wanted to write coworker because it seemed like a plausible comment. At last, by magic, no one has ever made that comment and I didn't want to be a LIAR to you folks). Story time, children. Once upon a time, I was walking downtown and realized that the turquoise one was missing. I was a little gloomy. Sad face. The end. THAT'S RIGHT. My dear collection has been dwindled down, but I have my fingers crossed that maybe a small child or a wondering soul or maybe even a homeless man has found it is doing something wonderful and creative with it. Hip hip hooray for lost treasures being found? PLEASE?

Not much is going on over at this end. Or, on the contrary, much is going on over at this end, but not much worth droning on and on and onnnnn about. I've recently been thinking about relationships and chemistry and what kind of people I'm generally compatible with. I find myself more hip-hip-hooray-yadda-yadddaaa around more mild/ timid people, and I'm more mild/ timid around really outspoken/ loud people. I DON'T KNOW, whhadddup with that? My personality can certainly be quite bi-polar and extremist in that sense. I also do not gel well with people that whine. It's something to do with my obnoxious peppy-ness that doesn't seem to vibe well with negative thoughts. (Seriously. The most commonly used word in the Dictionary of Lexy's life is "Yay." I am a five year old, really.) I guess I'm just like, you know, a lost soul trying to find my tribe. I probably never will, just because I just said, "I'm a lost soul trying to find my tribe." Who says that? Besides 80-year-old hippies on acid? Are they my tribe? Should I Kijiji that shizzz? WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME? I need to eat breakfast. Peace owwwt, lovely people. Peace.

What kind of people do YOU generally get along with?

Sometimes I get along with quiet bookish types best! But I do love a quirky, opinionated friend too. Lovely floral mix-

FLORAL OVERLOAD! I LIKE IT!

I differ person to person, sometimes loud people make me loud, sometimes they make me shy. I guess I get along best with people that make me laugh and that I can make laugh as well. Laughter really is the best way to bring together a group of people!

Haven't been on yoo blog in so long, I MISS IT!

These colours are delish! So bright & fresh :) I am totally awkward and quiet around super extroverted people, although around shy people I find myself gabbling random crap to fill in the silence... xx

Amanda said...

I love those socks!!!! And of course everything else, like the florals! But really, pink and orange are my favourite colours when put together, it's like a peanut butter and jam sandwich...they are the best pair! XD

alix said...

double florals! Yay! (see what I did there?) love the shoe/sock combo. I find I get along better with silly people who don't take themselves to seriously

Lydia said...

I love the color of those shoes with those socks. And your knit flowers are adorable, you should wear them all the time! I get what you're say about being louder around quiet people and vice versa. Maybe you just don't want to compete or it's zaniness overload?

Bonnie said...

Your face is so gorgeous. I just want to squeeze it -- not in a creepy way.
I love how you mixed the floral prints. It looks crazy balls in the best way possible.

Aaahhh, so beautiful. I love this outfit!

I get along well with people who are extremely sarcastic and aren't too serious, because that's exactly the person I am. Like I know this person I CAN'T STAND because they have no sense of humor. HOW ARE YOU A MEMBER OF SOCIETY WITH NO SENSE OF HUMOR?!

...okay, rant done.

fransmiles said...

The general summery colourfulness is making me resentful of winter D: I want your jacket so much! I completely agree with you on the people front. Apparently it's important to kinda avoid negative people (Does that sound really harsh? I don't mean it too!) or eventually their negativity starts bringing you down as well. But given that you've got such a lively personality I doubt you have much of a problem with that :)

Quinn B said...

I generally get along with weird people who aren't afraid to speak their minds.
I love your dressss. ahhhh. Oh no the flower. :( That is sad.. <3

Kailey said...

Your knack for mixing patterns is just genius!

Rimi said...

methinks I get along with most people, although i definitely get seriously annoyed with obnoxiously rude people, blatant stoners and douche bag guys. nevertheless, i'm always nice (enough) to them...:)

Hazelnut said...

I get along with different kinds of people really. But I like to be around outgoing people because they make me act outgoing too. I'm too shy for my own good. :)

Melody said...

I still don't understand how you can dress so colourful and still look gorgeous ! I find it so hard to rock so many bright colourss ! YOU GENIUS <3 hehe

Anyway, I guess I don't get along that well with annoying people LOL - I know that's like really easy to say but yeh xD

Meg said...

I love your pattern-mixing, lady! So bold!

As for people I get along with, I think my "tribe" are geeks n' nerds. Some of my best friends go to sci-fi/fantasy conventions (and so do I, sometimes, when I have the money). Geeks tend to have interests similar to mine, are actually smart (I'm no Mensa candidate, but I like hanging out with smart people), and tend towards the goofy. <3

Melissa said...

that jacket and dress just look like they were both made to be worn together! good thing you picked them up and worked your magic :D

you look FAB my lovely!!
xx

Mani said...

Chanel Tonè said...

I love your mixture of floral prints. Very well pulled off especially with those flower pins. Too cute. The kind of people I get along with are those that a real, deep and a voice and genuine spirt. Intellectual but not afraid no matter how old they are they gotta be silly, have fun, cuss and watch cartoons with me (Real silly)

P.S. Gonna check out your new Etsy Shop!

FashionJazz said...

No one can mix floral prints like you can babe :) xx

Eline said...

I really love your style, too! AND YOUR POSING, your posts are so much fun <3

I did this whole class in body language and stuff because I really really suck at it? And apparently adjusting yourself to how loud or quiet people are is basically the norm and it makes people feel comfortable. Alternatively, when you get quieter around loud people, it is perhaps because you are (unconsciously) intimidated? I don't know what psychologists would say when you're louder with quiet people? Maybe you secretly want to dominate people, haha. I don't know, I am just all around quiet, except when drunk or enthused about candy or something :D

Oh to Be a Muse said...

i never thought you'd be timid at all. i think i like being around outspoken people, but not stupid outspoken people...if that makes sense. i like talkers as long as they aren't just talking to hear the sound of their voice.

by the way, there were definitely some pieces in the Versace for H&M collection that were so you. :)

olivias-pizzaz said...

hahaha love your title sooo trueee! Hey old photos are good!! I can never get over your amazing orange loafers, huuge shoe envy!! Loving the miz of florals, you pull it off perfectly! hmm i dont know i get a long with many people haha.

Flor Frutal said...

sO MUCH COLORS, I love it! ♥

Audrey Allure said...

Loving that dress! And I'm the same - I'm different around certain types of people, really depends who I'm with also. And we all find "our tribe" eventually :)

Mila said...

Gosh, you are so absolutely GORGEOUS. I love the flower pins you are wearing as well-I think everyone has at least one accessory or clothing item that they are obsessed with or at least wear a LOT. I know I do at least, haha.

Have a great Thanksgiving! :)

The first two photos are super cute :D stop making me miss summer so much!! Liking the flower overload!!

Marisa Noelle said...

Oh my gosh, the title of this post had me cracking up to pieces....bahaha! You outfit is really adding some sunshine to the constant rain we've been having in my town lately! I love the warm toned jacket against the cooler toned dress. I can generally get a long with everybody unless you are a downright mean, manipulative, negative person...those are the ones I stay away from.

Flow Disruption said...

This outfit is gorgeous! You're makin' me wish it were summer again. ;) I tend to mesh well with mild people, too. I get turned off when someone is cocky or demanding. Drama sucks ...

I wouldn't have guessed you were timid, but I've always sensed you were easy going. You're always positive and thoughtful. :) I wish I could verbalize my internal pep as well as you. ;)

Punk Chopsticks said...

LOL I love reading your blog!!! Ahahahah it's so bright an dhappy and everything! I get the bi polar thing, i'm like that too xD

aki! said...

I have never seen anyone work florals like you do. Especially these loud prints. Especially, especially together. But... that's just so you.

I loved your comment on my blog. I was looking at it and not even thinking that it's not what you usually post until I read your actual comment. That kind of FOLLOW ME comment is making me skim real comments. More reason to dislike them.

Allie said...

i love the way you made the florals work, it's really hard to do that, but you really managed to work that out. The outfit really looks good on you, you have a really good sense of style! The lipstick really pops against the outfit.

I love that dress.

Style Porn said...

Ha! You will find your tribe all right...although it may be in some strange coffee shop where they only serve soy milk and men cross their legs and read about philosophy all day. I don't know! It's all a mystery! But I guess that's what makes it fun eh?

I hate shy people. I really do. They're boring. Everyone else, I can stomach.

KyandiiCandy said...

Woow girl i love how you match those floral prints together!! =D

Louise said...

Oh whoa, those flowers are so pretty! I love your outfit. Your smile is so nice too! (I love the lipstick!)

People I get along with? Well, I like it when people are themselves, have a great sense of humour and are original and innovative.

Gaby de Modacapital said...

amazing look! Is an explotion of colors!!
Love the shoes! :)
Kisses!

Isabel Spectre said...

Ermm I love you. Straight up. haha your posts are sooo silly and wonderful and I wish that you live near me so that I could know you in real life. youuuu rock my world, sorry that this is probably really creepy. sorry sorry. i just love everything about you.

and your clothes, they are tooo perfect, seriously. I cant handle you. overload overload of looove. i am so sorry that your pin got lost! but i bet someone else will get good use out of it :)

DougNQhQ said...

That means you can actually see if that particular product works for you and you can probably lose some weight into the bargain - all for free (or a very small shipping/handling charge). However, you have to trade cautiously since many of these sites are not genuine and created by Hoodia holders for selling Hoodia. Hoodia Diet Pills are made up of the finest active ingredients such as hoodia gordonii powder, stearic acid, and magnesium stearate, which greatly contribute to their efficacy as appetite suppressants. Either wanting to gain weight or trying desperately to lose weight, it is a constant on most peoples minds.
