I don't like spiders

They scare the living bejezus out of me. Doesn't matter how small they are, the second I see one, I start to panic. (This extends to most insects and centipede-like creatures. Ew.) So when I saw a spider floating gently down in front of me on its little web of fear in the middle of my photo shoot this morning, I got a little uncomfortable. Fortunately, he was small enough for me to take care of the situation...but unfortunately, he was big enough to interrupt my photos. Hence the strained looks and the peering at the ground, haha.

items: 12, 20, 27
yellow shirt: thrifted
necklace & knot earrings: The Limited

Ok, so I cheated just a tiny bit on my 30 items here. But it's for a good reason...Everybody Everywear! This month it's yellow. I don't own much yellow at all...I think it makes my skin look funny sometimes. But I have a few shirts, so here's my yellow for the month :)

In other news...still looking for 2-3 guest bloggers for early August, when Matt and I go to NYC. Email me at verbal{dot}melange{at}gmail{dot}com if you're interested!

Update: I have all my spots filled for vacation time. Thanks, guys, for the responses! If you want to guest post for me at some random time, you can still shoot me an email. I love connecting with other bloggers!

  2. Yellow looks great on you! You should definitely sport the color more often!

  3. Love that yellow on you. I'm not bothered much by spiders - I'm the resident bug killer in our house!:)

  4. Despite the spider scare, you look adorable! x hivenn

  5. Oh no, I hate spiders. They move to fast for my liking. I too am scared to step outside, when I opened my patio doors yesterday there was a bloody big RAT sat staring at me. screamed, screamed some more and locked myself in the house. Yuk Yuk makes me shiver thinking about it.

  6. this is a unique, yet totally classic and adorable, look. love the idea of a sleeveless button-up as a vest. nice.

  7. I too really like the way you used this shirt as a vest. I'm going to store that idea away and hopefully pull it out one day!

  8. I hate spiders too! I probably would have had to move my photo shoot somewhere else.
