Lacy and late

The "lacy" is for this outfit, worn a week and a half ago. The "late" is for what I am today, because I just could. not. decide on an outfit. Don't you just hate those kind of mornings? Ugh.

I bought this shirt the other weekend when my mom and sisters and I all went shopping. We stopped at F21 and even though I completely blew my budget, dropping $20 on this top (hey, it was only $8, how could I pass that up??), a necklace and a bracelet, I comforted myself by realizing that my sister spent $100, so the situation could have been much worse for me. (Granted, I was insanely jealous that my sis had $100 to drop on new clothes, but she's always been a better budgeter than me. She deserves that one.)

top: Forever 21
cami: Old Navy
skirt: New York & Company
shoes: thrifted
necklace: F21?
bracelet: thrifted

In retrospect, I realize a few things about shooting this outfit. One: Post-work sun is not kind. It washes out all color and no matter how hard you try to fix it in Photoshop, it's simply beyond fixing. So now you can't see any of the pretty detailing in this lace top. Two: Going to the woods at the Park of Roses in three-inch heels to take photos is not a very good plan. I had so much mud on those babies... and Three: Pretending to look nonchalant in the woods while simultaneously trying to avoid the line of sight of the guys in the nearby parking lot is not as easy as it sounds. Or maybe it's exactly as easy as it sounds, which is not at all.


  1. I have a few tricks for taking a picture in the sun so you dont lose the color

  2. Haven't tried traipsing through the woods in heels yet! You are quite brave. And getting out of F21 for $20 is a good thing. That store is dangerous!

    We have been wanting to try to go to Inniswoods in Westerville, but haven't had a chance to get up there.

  3. This outfit is so simple and cute!
    I take most of my photos after work. If you wait a little longer for the sun to start to set you get much better color.
    P.S. I am also frequently jealous when people spend more than me at clothing stores. Even if they are just in front of me in line and not a sibling ;)
