Oh the woes of bad weather and forgetting to bring your tripod home. No worries, my tripod wasn’t left in the park. Nope, it isn't lost either. See it's on a mini vacation at my parents' house. I had been staying there for a few days while they are on vacation and in my packing hasting yesterday morning I neglected to pack my good ole pal. Good thing I’m a pro at mirror photos and propping my camera on my clock radio, right?


On the plus side, staying at Jim and Bren's {aka Dad and Mom}, I got to take full advantage of my sister's accessory stash. Like this necklace! Isn't it cute? And yesterday's outfit wouldn't have been complete without her gray scarf. Oh yeah, AND they have cable! Since turning our cable off last week I've been in withdrawal. What is a girl to do without her Monday night ritual of Gossip Girl? Or her Thursday night comedy shows? Looks like I'll be headed back tonight.

Pin It!

  3. Love this outfit! I stole (ahem, I mean borrowed) a bunch of accessories from my sister too. Hey when you can't go shopping, go shopping in someone else's closet!

  5. I LOVE this outfit! I'm pretty much drooling over it right now and it's embarrassing. This skirt is amazing, I love the texture and the lace but how it remains understated and classic. Also, this purple is a favourite of mine and finally, the necklace it perfect. You bet I would have stolen that off a girl guide if she got too close on the wrong day!

  13. Oh man, seeing how cute the Loft skirt looks on you makes me SAD! I have (had) the same one, wore it for the first time this weekend, and my friend's dog ripped it on the front. So, so sad. You look adorable though!

  16. Thanks Sorren! Although I'm glad you didn't get a chance to "steal" my look. Being clothes-less could be quite embarassing...

  17. Ashley! It is killing me! And draining my gas tank too because I keep driving to other people's houses to watch tv. Cannot wait until I move and get settled in. Settled in, meaning who cares about the furniture, give me my cable!

  18. Bekah you are 100% right friend! Swapping is the best.

  21. Ok so I am starting to think we share brain waves or something because we keep wearing this skirt on the same day! Too weird. Love the blue on black look!

  27. Right now, you are probably cozying up to 30 Rock while I have to wait another torturous three hours. Ah, enjoy it for me.
    I wanted to be sure to comment today because I really like the length of your skirt today. That hemline really elongates you and is very flattering.

  29. I love the fact that your 30 for 30 is also centered around your work wardrobe! You're so adorable!!

  30. Thanks Linda! I actually didn't get to watch 30 rock, but I did find time for Community which is quickly becoming my favorite TV show.

  31. Thanks! Work wear is kinda my thing considering I work in office that leans way more to the business side of things than the casual side.

  32. Thanks Meg! I do love this necklace. I'm half tempted to wear it again before giving back to my sister ;)

  33. Thanks Melissa! I'm an old pro and prop and shot, although it was odd doing it after using a tripod for the last few weeks.
