Ice cream date

On Sunday, Brett and I headed back "home" to our beach town to eat lunch with his parents. It was so lovely being back for a little while! We headed down and put our feet in the sand for a few minutes, grabbed ice-cream cones on the boardwalk and headed to our favorite playground to hang out. Sometimes I get super mad at myself for moving away from a town I adore so much, but I have to remind myself… it's just a short drive away!


So um… I love this outfit and it's my favorite. As my co-worker, Anne, would say, "Bragger". Hehe! Of course, I adore mint and being all matchy-matchy. But I also love sheer tops, t-strap flats and jeans. So this outfit was a no-brainer and I'll probably wear this exact combination several more times this season!


So I was getting my oil changed today and I heard, "Are you Tieka?" and I was delighted to meet a reader! She was SO nice too and said, "You just amaze me." It totally made my day. Sometimes I feel like such a slacker (only 13 posts in April, seriously?) but people like that (and readers like you!) make me feel like I'm on top of the world. So thank you for that!

  1. I've been loving mint this season too, but I don't actually own anything that colour. This needs to change haha! I absolutely adore this outfit and the way your top matches your jeans so perfectly. Have a lovely week, Tieka!

  2. you look adorable, as usual. you always seem to have the most fun weekends! eating ice cream, visiting your old town, walking around the beach. all i did was watch movies, sigh. but anyways, love the mint on mint too! i especially love that that shirt is sheer, it kind of breaks it up and makes it look like an interesting look.

  4. Oh my gosh, two AMAZING posts back to back!! Woot, woot!! How I adore this outfit... the mint hued jeans are stunning, as is your styling of them. Plus, these photos are unbelievably cute and so much fun!! Haha, and I want to steal your ice-cream cone - yum!! ;)

    Saw your tweet about your reader (aww!) that is the sweetest thing ever - it's wonderful to have that kind of support + you truly are amazing!! xo

  5. I absolutely adore your jeans! I've been loving mint lately, too: Essie's mint candy apple nail polish might be the best thing ever.

  6. You look super cute ... as always. I love mint and really, really want to find more mint clothes. Those jeans are perfect for spring. I'm very jealous of you being able to wear this outfit and be warm enough. I have so many spring clothes I want to wear but all we've had is rain and really cold temperatures! X

  14. This outfit is adorable!

    Did you happen to be eating mint-chocolate chip ice-cream while wearing it? ;)
    That would complete the match-y, match-y-ness to the utmost degree!

    That's so neat about meeting a sweet and nice reader.

    Have a great rest of your Monday!

  15. I saw a sneak peek of this outfit from your tweet/instagram pic and was really hoping you would share the entire thing! That ice cream looks delicious. I may have to go get some right now...

  16. Oh goodness, I love everything about this!! The mint pants paired with that top = perfection.
    And to top it all off....you are one lovely lady!

  17. Oh wow, how awesome to run into a reader! I can't imagine how cool that would be. :)
    And of course Tieka! Its because the outfit posts you put up have effort in them, it doesn't matter how many you do a month. The beautiful photos and outfits that you do share are all worth it and give your blog the quality it has! You've inspired me to do my best with my blog too.
    Absolutely love this mint outfit! The jeans, sheer blouse...everything is just spot on. Haha, my favorite by far too!

  20. Love the outfit and don't feel like a slacker it's quality not quantity that should matter you're an awesome blogger and you do have a life outside of the blog world so enjoy it and if your readers love you enough they won't care that you only posted 13 times in April :).

    Ps is circle maybe going to in Ann arbor any time soon again? I missed you last time and I'm sad?

  38. This is one of my fave outfits from you lately! Love the mint and all the little details! Regarding the posting, please don't feel like a slacker. It's about quality, not quantity. As your readers, we much rather you post less often in order to keep a better life/work/blog balance and for you to keep seeing blogging as a positive and fun thing, then get burned out because you feel the pressure to post all the time. Also, your hair is rocking in these pics!

    Much Love!

  39. This outfit is simply amazing! I adore it SO much ^^ And like many commentatores above me already have said: it's about quality, not quantity! My schedule is simply too busy to post more! I could do so, but then I couldn't post as many outfits as I like to or write any thoughtful things! x

  49. if you don't mind me asking, what size did you get in this top? i am often between small and medium and I would usually order small and hope for the best, but the worst thing ever is when my shirt is too tight around my hips! I love it and want to be wearing it right now! Hope it's ok I asked :)

  50. Darling Tieka, always so delightful to check in on you. 'only 13 posts in april', oh gosh, I'm not the only one that measures one's slackiness by lack of posts then. Haha. I don't even come close to the amount of readers but I always get kind of upset with myself for not keeping my own updates consistent, when I myself, go back and get all nostalgic.

    Oh, and love the minty details on the collar! Cute!

  51. Really cute outfit! Love how playful and natural your pictures are :)
