I am seriously obsessed with the combination of coral and teal or coral and mint. I just think it is fun, vibrant and works really well together. Anytime I mix and match colors at the office, I always want to ensure it is minimal so I don’t freak my co-workers out. Well, I’m pretty sure I freaked them out anyway. Oh well! At least I was having fun, being productive and feeling good about life. Also, how CUTE is this starfish bracelet from InPink? I absolutely love it! It is definitely going to be my go-to accessory this summer and anytime I’m wearing bright colors, stripes or anything nautical-inspired, you better believe this bracelet will be a part of my arm party.
Now for Blog Every Day in May, my most embarrassing moments. Trust me, I have A TON of them. I mean my middle name should just be embarrassment. But the most memorable ones deal with tripping. Apparently my last name in German means “clumsy”… I have no idea if this is true, but I’ll take it because my family is very clumsy! So in high school I had a huge crush on my best friend’s older brother (huge no-no, right? meh, he was beautiful!) and while passing him leaving the lunchroom, he was coming down the stairs and I was going up. I started to say hello as I completely wiped out and tripped going UP the stairs. SO embarrassing. Next tripping embarrassment: I was in my senior year of college, and although this might have involved a couple, a few, maybe more beers, I fell down a bar’s stairs in front of a completely full bar. It was one of those moments where everyone goes “OHHHHH” (you know like when someone drops their tray in the lunchroom) and then I stood back up and said “HEYYYYY I’m okay!”… and proceeded to eat two hot dogs. Hey they were always free at this bar and I thought it would help with the whole falling down thing. Classy, I know. Happy Friday everyone!

This dress is so pretty on you – look at your tiny waist! I think this dress is such a keeper. Plus with your lighter hair it just looks like summer time 🙂
RachelMay 10, 2013 at 9:01 AM
This dress sure does wonders for my waist 😉 I love it. It was something I was drawn to at this vintage store, tried it on, fit me perfectly! I hope I can have it in my closet for a long time. I’m always still in awe of how WELL MADE things were back in the day. The fabric is amazing! And I’m loving the coral with my lighter hair!

I love this outfit! Way to recover from the falling in the bar, too funny 🙂

Haha, yeah. I mean I figured what else do you do?! I could have run away or embraced that it just happened 😉 Have a great weekend Ginny!
DenisaMay 10, 2013 at 8:19 AM
You look so nice in that dress. Very nice color. Have a nice friday.
RachelMay 10, 2013 at 8:34 AM
haha! I usually don’t trip, but I always say embarrassing things. But when you’re cute and innocent-looking you can usually get away with it! I love coral, especially with turquoise just like you mentioned!
Bethie the BooMay 10, 2013 at 8:46 AM
LOL, I think a lot of people’s most embarrassing stories involve alcohol somehow!
I adore this dress! Coral and teal are two colors I would really like to pair together too!
RachelMay 10, 2013 at 9:07 AM
This is TOO true. I’m sure most of my embarrassing moments aside from tripping involve this, but sometimes I just can’t remember. I also have really awkward encounters with people sometimes when I say something stupid, but I can’t ever remember this!
SharonMay 10, 2013 at 9:47 AM
The dress looks so cute with that darling bow belt! Ugh I hate tripping in front of people…always so embarrassing. I slipped on something on the way out of the grocery store not that long ago and totally bit it. Everyone was asking if I was okay and I just wanted to get outta there!

Soooooo pretty! I really like how the bright coral makes the blond highlights in your hair even brighter. You look ready for summer!

I’m so sad I can’t get that dress & copy you:( You look SO freaking amazing in it!!! And those teal heels & cute bow belt are the perfect touches.

great color dress on you, and i really love that belt!

You look beautiful with this gorgeous dress. The color looks great on you 🙂
FutureLintMay 10, 2013 at 2:14 PM
You’re right – love the color combo! Eating two hot dogs after falling down is the most random thing ever to do – so funny!
aniMay 10, 2013 at 2:54 PM
Anything bowish makes me heart beat quicker hahaha, how cute is that belt, the nude colour fits perfectly to this coral dress. I also love this refreshing colour combo, so summerish. I love your hair that light, your beautiful blue sticks out even more.
AND why dont you ask your german blogger friend what your last name means? If I dont know who should hehe? I am curious now, just email me if you dont wanna share it 🙂

You lightened your hair, right? I really love it! And that dress looks so flattering on you!
SueMay 10, 2013 at 7:44 PM
That dress is so cute! Also, you totally recover from embarrassing falls better than me, at least on that bar one! My falls are always spectacular, and they also have a bad tendency to injure me. Ah well…
KateMay 10, 2013 at 10:36 PM
Those heels!!! That dress!!! I love it all! Send it to me now? Thanks 🙂 Haha, but seriously. I just stumbled upon your blog, and I have to say, you have an amazing sense of style! Your story makes me laugh, I can’t say that I ever have done that, but I have tripped so many times in front of my students. I just try to ride it off like nothing happened. (That rarely works.)
