    Alex, I swear you take the best iphotos. I enjoy your posts on IG so much and can’t believe you take them with your phone! I also really like the effect of belting your coat. It’s very chic and looks so effortless.

    Wow, what gorgeous photos and you look magnificent in them. Adore the lights and that antique typewriter. Great to find your blog.

      What? Next year for sure, especially with your new camera. 

      Next year I requested a family of penguins and a polar bear be added to the yard. There’s already a dolphin with a santa hat. I find that one sort of puzzling.

        there were a couple places in my town, and in a neighboring town that had some nice lights i though would make for perfect outfit photo backdrops, but i never managed to get there at just that perfect time before sundown (or at all). I guess we can call it lack of proper motivation or fear of the home owner coming out and saying “excuse me, can I help you? what are you taking photographs of near my house?” Imagine that in the high pitched tone of a self important middle aged housewife.

        and dolphins always wear santa hats. they are like santas helpers of the sea. who do you think delivers presents to the sea urchins?

    I think it’s awesome how much you’ve been rocking the red lip lately. You have WAY more guts than I do when it comes to that. I always feel so self-conscious wearing lipstick to class, so I hardly ever do. Great outfits!

      I did used to be really really self-conscious about it… I think I’ve sort of grown into darker lipstick. It’s something that I felt uncomfortable wearing when I was still in college. Darker lipstick also makes me look a little bit older, which can be very good at times.
