Pick A Pattern, Any Pattern

Friday, December 5, 2014

Michael and I took forever to get anything done on this day. We had places to go and things to pick up and yet we just couldn't bring ourselves to get out of the house in a hurry, which I must say I rather appreciate some days. I'm always in such a rush and thinking about getting things done done done, crossing them off the list, etc. and Michael is so chill...on the days we operate on his time my brain really appreciates it. So after lots of chilling around we finally got ready and ran our few errands and had some Mexican food and it was good. 

I decided I wanted to go for an all black and white look and really play with some patterns, so this is what I put together! I actually really loved it. I wore something with a similar skirt and the same top over the summer, so this is almost like a winter twist on it! I also am just completely in love with this cardigan. It's so funky, right? You can see it another way here.

The sun was about to set when Michael and I went to take these photos, so we just hopped out of the car right where we were and decided to take them by an empty business space near a main road. We were in the parking lot next to it already to pick up some final decorations from the dollar store, so we figured we could make the space work. It ended up working out just fine, however I did get spit at by some lady when I told her I didn't have any change on me to give her...so that was interesting. Oh well. I did overall enjoy having a more urban setting for these photos, because I just don't think our beautiful forest yard would have quite meshed with this look.

Hoping everyone is having a great start to their weekend!

    1. Thanks so much Sammi! I feel like getting my eyebrows perfect will be my lifelong struggle, haha, but I'm getting closer!

  2. This outfit is SO perfect. You look stunning! Your makeup is so flawless -- that lip color is gorgeous on you -- and I adore all of the prints here! Plus, the fit of everything is very subtly sexy. Love!
