pay no attention to that weird green tarp in the corner...

Actually, this was pretty good day.

My favorite photo-taking days are ones where there is absolutely no pressure to get things done. Saturdays are always our "shoot days," and somehow just knowing this makes things stressful. Like we can't just enjoy our weekend... there's "work" to do. And the photos can never just be a spontaneous fun, thing- it's always planned.

Either way, these were taken on a day Matt worked from home last week. So no pressure :) We just stepped outside for a bite of lunch and some photos... fun and done.

Also, I'm SOOOO psyched to finally bust out this pair of Tims!!!

Timberland Nellie

To put it mildly, these shoes make me feel really, really, really cool. In my everyday outfits, I'm always angling for a casual-chic vibe. I luurve the Timberlands, because they're trendy and stylish, and embody that effortless casual-cool thing I'm forever seeking.

Plus I'm in love with this AMAZING cardigan from Sammydress. I've been longing for just the right grandpa sweater all winter long, and I think I've met my match. Sometimes I don't love long sweaters on me, because I feel like I need to play up my curvy shape. But I do like a sweater that I can sort of hide in... play with proportions a little. They have the same one in blue, which I now want terribly!
