It's spring!!


It finally feels like spring outside!!! Here I am going bare-legged, and feeling amazing about it.

It's been awhile since I've posted any photos of myself. When I first started this blog, it was almost all style photos. My, how time passes...

Anyway, I got together for brunch with one of my besties, Alyson. When I asked her to take some shots, she turned out to be a natural behind the camera... mostly because we had soooo much fun doing it! A tiny and terrible secret: sometimes, taking outfit pics can feel like a chore. Often we're under pressure, he's been working all day, or it's late. I love it when it's spontaneous like this... you're just out having a good time, so the photos and the mood are energetic as a natural result.

I even think my hair looks kinda cute! Freshly washed, and no product.

Also, this girl awesomely photobombed us! She was walking by and just decided to start posing in some shots, while talking on the phone!! Check out the look of confusion and excitement on my face and in my body language. It was all pretty hilarious.

One last thing- I'm loving simple looks lately. Like really simple. I've started stockpiling these t-shirts that I found at Forever 21 for $5 each in different colors. I've been living in them.

    1. yeah, about the simple shirts. i used to be allergic to buying simple ANYTHING. it would always have to be the most loud/ vintage/ weird print that i could find. now, i find myself buying boring basics more and more. guess i need some more variety!

    1. i think high-waisted everything is becoming my new signature look. only thing with the jeans is, i'm finding they do get a bit uncomfy after awhile... they cut directly into my stomach, making it impossible to eat anything :P
