As you can tell from my previous post, it was a "hair up", "glasses on" kind of weekend. I blame not feeling super well/laziness.
I wore this outfit Saturday on a cold and dreary day. I also made the mistake of biking that day, thinking that maybe the weather would hold out. Good thing I took these photos before my jaunt to the library. What did I get at the library, you ask? Oh you know, the usual: Communist Manifesto, On Liberty by John Stuart Mill, and season 3,4 and 6 (only one disc of each) of Sex and the City. Which items do you think were for class? And which item do you think consumed my Saturday? Not the Communist Manifesto...

The carpet and scarf could be friends

As I was uploading pictures of this outfit, I realized that my scarf has a striking resemblance to the rug. Weird.
This outfit was worn to do much needed work at a coffee shop. It was actually a little warm today for boots but I didn't care. I really wanted to wear them. Actually, I really wanted to wear this entire ensemble so I went ahead and wore it anyway. When it comes to blazers and jackets I often find myself pairing them with very light, airy tops. Change in body temperatures sends me into a slight, unannounced panic (ask J) so if I can avoid the panic but wearing layers that are easy to take on and off than I usually feel pretty good.
I am trying out this hair style that I found on this beautiful lady's blog. I love the illusion of a full bun. Thank you, Emily, for rocking this hair style and showing us how.

The Only One

(Dress: Thrifted, Sweater: Old Navy, Scarf: Mom, Belt, tights, shoes: Target, Earrings: F21)
I was able to get one photo of my outfit before my camera died. You can just feel the camera working so hard in the low light to get this picture taken. I felt it necessary to honor camera's effort by sharing it with you.

For the win

There are definite hints of fall. This is what I call a transitioning outfit. It easily transitions from summer to fall.
I am pretty happy with this color combination. I wore the scarf and sweater here and I wanted to try it again. For the win.
I can't say enough about these pants. High-waisted, dark wash, big pockets and hella comfortable. They almost pass for slacks, which is great. Also, for the win.

I wore this outfit to a culinary walk in Iowa City. The walk featured different restaurants in IC and was a fundraiser for the Johnson County Food Alliance. It was so fun to walk around with friends and sample fabulous food from different restaurants I really enjoy.
I am loving this top. It is so versatile and lightweight that it can be worn with so many things.
I am also loving how these photos turned out. Again, a little dramatic, but the color and feel of the room were really captured. I was playing with spacing and, for once, doing horizontal instead of vertical shots. I like being able to see more of the space I am in for the photos.

I have been playing around a bit with the look of my blog and my photos. I finally got my header photo to fit correctly. Small victories.
The house I live in has these beautiful colored walls (pink in my room excluded) and I wanted to see how the colors captured in photos. I love the blue walls in the living room and with the big windows and book case, it definitely gives the image more interest.
I edited these photos in Picnik using cross process and a bit of tweaking of the colors and exposure. They seem a bit dramatic. Or maybe it's because I'm not smiling. Either way, it was fun to try something new with the documenting of outfits. Maybe it will inspire me to document more frequently.

Speaking for itself

I LOVED this outfit. Not only was it incredibly comfortable, but wearing it made me feel very put together. I wore this outfit to an museum exhibition opening and then to study for awhile at a coffee shop before heading to a friend's show. I think this outfit speaks for itself. I will find a way to transition it to fall.
