That Fellow




Dolce Vita "Alma" top, Elizabeth and James "Lafayette" sunglasses, MAC "Forever Rose" Pro Longwear Lipglass.
I'm not the most romantic gal in the world; I never quite grew out of the "Ewww...icky love stuff!" stage, which is usually reserved for childhood. What I've come to realize is that it's not the actual romance that makes me uncomfortable - just the showiness of it. I would like to think it's pretty clear that I'm rather fond of Bobby, considering we've been together for so many years, even if I'm not constantly shouting it from the rooftops. I try not to saturate the internet with millions of lovey dovey couples photos (although those might pop up from time to time, obviously), but I absolutely adore and appreciate him. He, however, is probably better at expressing it - and I love him for that. When Helena and I arrived back at The Mondrian in LA, these flowers were waiting for me, just because. Gerbera daisies are such happy flowers and he knows they are a favorite of mine, but what made this bouquet absolutely perfect was the attached card and matching balloon that said, "Happy Anniversary!" Why? Because it wasn't our anniversary, and the florist made a mistake. But it made me giggle [and giggle itself is a really funny word, if you think about it], and that made it even better. I think it all sums our relationship up quite well: colorful, charmingly imperfect, and full of laughs. He's a nice boy, that fellow.

  10. I loved seeing this side of you. So glad you have someone like him in your life. It always makes my heart smile when my bf surprises me with flowers for no reason at all.

  18. Awww! Such a sweet gesture. I love wildflowers full of color rather than boring red roses so I'm obsessed with your flowers, so pretty.

  19. You lucky duck to have such a nice boyfriend

  20. So sweet and hilarious (about the florist's mistake.) You two are such a nice couple.
    I'm overtly lovey-dovey in real life where my husband is concerned, but I try to keep it to myself where the blog is concerned. It's hard sometimes. I don't always succeed.

  22. Gerberas are my favourite flowers, too! They grow in my favourite colours Orange and Pink <3 And I prefer them over roses, I think red roses are always so dark and boring :D

  24. Gerberas are definitely a happy flower. I am more of mushy girl and think this was such a sweet and romantic gesture.

  25. I feel like I used to be more mushy and have gotten less mushy overtime. I have a good friend who is very into the PDA.. her boyfriend always gives her kisses in public and strokes her hair at dinner.. which I think is a weeee bit too much. Glad I'm not the only one! Oh and the flowers are so pretty <3

  26. Haha! That is so great. Cory has a much easier time with the cheesy, romance stuff compared to me too. He has definitely softened my heart over the years though...

  29. that's SO ADORABLE! You're a lucky lady; it's been a dream of mine to get "just because" flowers, but it never happens. Maybe I'm not as special as you, or maybe I just have yet to find as special a guy as you have!

    Congrats on adorableness <3
