opposites attract

this photo was taken last week when i was waiting for the emission testing and annual registration of my car. i wasn't in the mood to dress up for work so i basically jumped out of bed, took a quick shower, hid my hair in a headband, wore my favorite shirt and black leggings. i think my blue bag saved the outfit (it's a christmas gift from harry in 2009 -- which i pre-chose by the way as he is so clueless about shopping! LOL) 

before harry, i've been single for 5 years --- dating but no commitments. i've had my heart broken a couple of times because a guy couldn't commit to me -- intimidated by me, the way i think and my strong personality. i tend to be irrational, sarcastic, be tomboy, a perfectionist, spontanoues, moody, aggressive,  and...smarter?haha! let's just say i laughed at picked up lines to guys' faces sometimes intentionally. and welp, i don't dress as simple as other typical girls too. i got frustrated with going home alone everyday that i asked our manager who was a good friend if there is something wrong with me. he told me, "well, maybe you need someone stronger than you. who can control you."

oh, he was so wrong! i didn't need someone who can control me, i needed someone who would complement me. i got the guy of my dreams and more. harry and i are total opposites in pretty weird (and funny) ways. 
i drive = he cooks the dinner. 
i love sports and was an athlete = he was an orator and a student body president. 
i love technology = he loves history. 
i love punk rock, brit rock, indie and new wave music = he loves oldies and standards.
i am health conscious = he doesn't even love wheat bread (LOL)
i love change and spontaneity = he likes to be safely where he is now
i love the beach = he loves the mountains
i tend to freak out easily = he stays calm
i like dogs = he likes cats
but you see, even with our opposite loves and personalities, we mesh well because we respect and support each other. and i have never been happier.

grey tee - thrifted
black leggings - ???
denim jacket - lil sister's
zebra-print headband - props
grey suede flats with metallic detail - so fab (a gift from big sis!)
blue faux leather bag - maldita (a gift from harry!)
necklaces: dog tag - custom-made | gun-metal reindeer - gift shop
sunnies - thrifted at carbon

Follow vanilla ice cream

You're lucky that you complement each other... yin and yang. There is balance in the relationship.

I love the bag and I like the way you styled yourself with that headband and the laid-back look.

Have a great day Gizelle! xoxo

DIANA said...

Wow! I love love this post!! I two have problems with guys
But I think it’s my problem am the scared of a serious relationship why? I don’t know I like to be alone a lot I enjoy going out with my friends I really do, they are the best and I love my family!!
When a guy starts getting serious I just think to myself no am not steady girlfriend material. And I have had my heart broken many times!!!!! so I think am a bit traumatized I keep thinking this guy is just messing with my head and he will forget about me in three months hahahah!
Am still working on this but am not in a rush, I will loose fear soon! Ahahahah
Take care darling loved the post♥♥
