I wore The Dress knotted up on both sides (getting a little crazy here!) over rolled up jeans, brown ankle boots (with a little bit of lacy sock showing at the top of the boot) and a skinny black belt around the waist to break up the solid black. I left my hair wavy and a little wild and wore a stretchy brown headband around my head in a way I've never done before, giving it that hippie/country je ne sais quoi. I wore a pastel green and pink flower necklace that was a gift from my friend Pauline (in Scotland) several years ago. A little black and brown semi-dramatic eye make-up finished off the look.
Early in the morning and later this evening, it was a little chillier so I wore the fringed brown wrap-around cardigan when needed.
Taking these pictures was fun. Cailean helped. Most of them turned out poorly, because apparently $15 tripods aren't worth the $15 you spend on them; the top pole kept sliding down and/or coming off, and it wouldn't hold the camera straight. Christmas idea - a good, quality tripod. But nonetheless, it was fun doing these pictures. Except when I put them on the computer to work some Photoshop magic on them, I realized my camera had been on the wrong setting the whole time and all my pictures were blue. So all non-blue colors in these photos are 100% brought to you by Adobe.
This might be my favorite outfit so far.
Also, I realized my blog deserves an apology for turning into a fashion blog for the whole month of October. More thought-provoking posts can wait until November with NaBloPoMo. Just for a month, until DeBloAdMo begins.
