Sun Flared

January 31, 2012
Dear Nnenna,

Lately there’s been a handful of beautiful days scattered among the grey and rainy ones. It feels nice to get out and about without a heavy coat, although it’s somewhat baffling for what’s supposed to be the dead of winter.

Not sure why, but I’m looking down in every single photo. Just one of those camera shy days. Either that or the appearance of the sun has nearly blinded me.

I’m wearing my Simply Vera Vera Wang jacket, Francesca’s Collections cardigan, Laugh Cry Repeat (just featured on Of a Kind!) shirt, J Brand jeans, Stuart Weitzman heels, and ken + dana necklace and ring. This is my Dana Buchman/Kohl’s bag again and my favorite old Anthropologie scarf.


Other ways I’ve worn these jeans:

    love how the sun shines upon you it warms up the pic, if u take off the scarf tied up to the bag i would TOTALLY wear this outfit, love all black outfits and your jacket is to die for

    I had the same issue with the photos I just posted this week. I was literally looking down in each shot. I think maybe my glasses made me awkward? I don’t wear them too often, so it was a change of pace. I want to hear all about IFB, BTW, couldn’t come this round, so relying on you!

      I wish you could have been there, but you really didn’t miss anything. It was basically a conference for new bloggers and a lot of the information consisted of things that bloggers have heard over and over and over again. And panelists were talking about not hearing about Pinterest? What?

    I am also very camera shy. These pictures look wonderful! The outfit is very elegant and fresh!
    Good luck!

    Oh man, that necklace pulls everything together so well. (I pretend like I don’t like cross jewelry, but I ever-so-secretly love big clunky stuff like this. Totally cool.) I wish I got home from work earlier, I looooove seeing your beautiful golden hour pictures and want spring to hurry up so I can leave my kitchen again. (For pictures. Pinky swear I’m not trapped in my kitchen 24/7.)

    Oh Mia… You have never seen my natural face– a light day for me is foundation, powder, bronzer, blush, eyebrow filler, and lip color! You could start off with a lip color, that’s what I did back in the day. e.l.f are only $1!
