Suntanning


Well this has certainly been a busy week! I finally got a day off (first one since last last sunday) which means I finally got some pictures again, whooo hooo. I got this coat from the Cabin Fever sale at Modcloth a few weeks back. I know I keep jumping back and forth from winter to spring outfits but what's a girl to do! I had a vision of an awesome picture in my head of me standing on the deck railing. Turns out it's not so easy to climb up and balance on the rail in a dress and wedges. I tried having the wedges up there and me scurrying up to throw them on but the 10 second timer is just not enough! Despite the gloomy sky it's actually pretty warm out so I was having a gay ol' time with bare feet and legs on the deck.

coat - Modcloth
belt - stole from the neighbour
dress - rw & co.
shoes - thrifted
This picture made me realize you must not grow out of facial expressions. Refer back to the first picture of Little Me in my last post.

  1. This is a very in between time for clothes. Not quite warm enough for all out spring but not cold enough for lots of layering...What is a girl to do? Thanks for the lovely comment. I hope someday I can get to the point of being able to make some lovely dresses for some lovely girls like you! Until then...you'll have to bare with me whilst I am awkwardly learning. I love that jacket on you...you always have such lovely earth tones and the green really looks nice on you.

  16. Nice coat and the wedges are pretty cool! Don't you have a custom timer mode on your camera? I like the "fail" attempts though :P xx (and Canada is probably on my back up list of places to go)

  17. Why do I have a feeling that "pretty warm out" in Canada means like 4 degrees? I know you hate the snow but it really does make for some striking photos. Great new coat, too :)

  18. Gorgeous shoes and a lovely coat too :) I have a picture of my Dad when he was a baby and it is so funny because he is pulling a face that 's still a signature expression for him :) I guess sometimes you can see the adult in the child and vice versa :)

  23. Love the over-sized houndstooth in an unconventional palette... That is houndstooth, isn't it?
