It really is heating up here in northern California, almost 80 degrees on the dalies! I snapped up these pictures around late afternoon yesterday before I went out to dinner with the fambam in Larkspur. My mom was heading a meeting up there, so we all took the opportunity to spend a little time together.
Quick Story: Okay, so I was walking up the street to the restaurant with my Fadre, minding my own business and chatting along with him about the purpose of a brow pencil. I stopped at a thrift store window with a mirror display to point out on himself where such a device could be used, when all of a sudden a car of obnoxious boys whips by and screams "YOU'RE HOT" like a bunch of barbarians. Haha oh well, at least that's some kind of compliment right?
I really like the way this outfit turned out, it's so versatile. With just a simple cardigan it looks very reserved and clean cut, but with just a simple subtraction of that item it turns into something with a totally different look. My mom said i looked a bit like a teacher while wearing the cardigan, but whatever, I like them both :).
What I'm Wearing:
Mauve Cardigan -- H&M
Black Velvet Bustier -- Forever21
Double Knit Skirt -- Urban Outfitters
Red Belt -- thrifted
I didn't realize how difficult OTD's really are. I had to run around my house to figure out a place to set up my camera that had good light, an even back drop, and something the correct height to put my camera on. Then every time I wanted to take a picture I'd have to reposition, hit self timer, and run across the room and pose. I still haven't quite gotten the positioning down yet, I really want to get my shoes it. I'm really too self conscious to ask someone to take pictures for me, but it would be so much easier.
