Oh my goodness. Let's just say I am a work-in-progress with my wardrobe. I like to think I was fashionable in high school, but let's face it, that was years ago. Blame it on a small budget, crazy cold winters or just plain laziness but I haven't been putting the effort into dressing that I would like to! I've spoken about this before here. I think I sometimes struggle because of my profession. I need to be dressed up, but can be very expressive or as my mother likes to put, "artsy," but I also need to be modest as well. Maybe joining the famous Pleated Poppy's link up with help. Here goes nothing.
This day I had a work event, another work event and then after party from event one! This meant lots of shooting, chasing down the mayor to get a photo of him and eating fancy appetizers. I love my job!
necklace: very old, it came with a Secret Garden book I picked out in 2nd grade
dress: from stephanie's it's wool and I love how pretty it is. The back has a sash and buttons all the way down.
boots: steve madden via nordstom's
Starting the morning out bright and early with newborn bebe photography. It was the first cooler day and I wanted to bundle up. I am such a tights and dresses kind of girl, it's just my thing. It makes me happy to dress like this.
boots: bare traps
I had to represent for game day! Although I had to work in the am (didn't wear this) and didn't go to the game I wanted to wear my maroon and gold in support of The Gophers! A group of friends and I ended up going to the apple orchard and then did a night out in lovely Stillwater, more on that later. I actually got too hot and took the boots off and wore sandals.
t-shirt: u of mn bookstore :)
boots: same as above
Between picking up two Scandinavian wedding cakes to photograph and running to two book stores to find the Esther Bible Study, it was a day of lots and lots of driving. I started the morning early at Caribou while my car got some new tires. I'm loving these cooler mornings, what a relief from the summer heat!
boots & jeans: same as above. I'm gonna get a few new pairs of boots, cannot wait for that shopping day!
striped tunic: nordstrom
ring: max studio
