Magoo 's Thoughts:

I think that a guy flirted with me while wearing this outfit. While I have not tried to flirt with anyone since I started dating my now-fiancee and I was never much of one for the traditional rules of attraction, I think that I definitely picked up some flirt vibes while buying cherries at the farmer’s market across from where I work. It’s shocking to have some one other than the weird people on the bus comment on my attire. As I was approaching the cherry guy’s fruit booth, he unexpectedly blurted “I like your outfit”, which made me think ‘did you not notice my engagement ring, mister cherry man?’ and then ‘hey, is this guy actually talking to me?’ to ‘oh, this is actually a pleasant conversation’ and, by the time I had fully comprehended the situation, the transaction was over. Admittedly, the cherry guy probably wasn’t flirting with me. If anything, I imagine that my outfit just stood out from the crowd of other, more frumpy-looking government employees that flood the farmer’s market, thus it deserved a compliment. I don’t mind, though. Sometimes it’s just nice to have a stranger like your outfit.

Thank you! I like to match pieces without being too matchy-matchy and, thankfully, I think this outfit had the right balance. :)
