Listening to: "Poses," Rufus Wainwright.
Top, jeans: Ann Taylor Loft;
How I've worn the bag: here.
I almost didn't post these photos because I didn't really like how I felt in this outfit. I love the ruffly top, but I'm not sure how I feel about wearing it with jeans again. It was cold outside and I wanted to be casual, so I threw this on but I felt off all day about it. And then I thought I looked awkward in the photos. Seriously, I need to figure out what poses those models from Altamira use to look natural. Does anyone else feel silly posing sometimes?
On another note, I've decided I'm not really a jeans person anymore. I used to be a jeans-all-the-time person, back when I used to be self-conscious of the eczema on my arms and the mosquito bites and scars on my legs (I was outdoors throughout most of my childhood and it showed). I wanted to hide my skin all the time. And then in college, something clicked. I think it was a) discovering "What Not to Wear" and b) being surrounded by thousands of women on campus and having different interpretations of beauty and style to look to for inspiration. I definitely discovered what I really loved to wear, and that was anything romantic or girly. I definitely think I am going to wear all my dresses in sequence starting this month.
I owe you a Trivia Tuesday for yesterday, so here are three. As always, you can play along too by posting something random about yourself in the comments. I love finding out more about our readers!
1) I really enjoy taking photos of food. I love finding color and texture inspiration in nature. Here's a sampling of my farmer's market visit today:
2) I'm left-handed. I always find it funny when someone is freaked out when they find this fact out. Seriously, something like 10 percent of the population is left-handed, so I'm not that uncommon.
3) Our wedding photographer loved this photo so much, he ended up using on his business card.
Hope you have a great night -- hopefully I'll feel model-y tomorrow.
