I really hope you like these photos because I almost got eaten by a hawk while I was kneeling to get a better shot of those holly leaves. It was eyeing the back of my head the whole time and making me very, very nervous. I thought it was going to try to pick me up by the collar and fly off with me.
Luckily I was spared! I was treated to a glorious view of its brown and white spotted underside as it flew away. I guess it decided I wouldn’t make very good prey after all. Unfortunately it was gone in a blink and I was unable to capture it in a photo.
I wish I could tell you what kind of hawk, but I’m not a very good bird-watcher. My father is though, he definitely would have been able to identify what type of hawk.
I wasn’t going to take any photos of myself, but once I got outside I thought the snow was just too nice. I definitely had one of those weirdo dressing days where I thought I wasn’t exactly myself. I hardly ever wear this much color all at once… I mean, green tights?
Hahaa one snowflake fell on my head and apparently my hair is big enough that it didn’t melt while I was taking photos.
After I photographed the fur I decided to do a coat series, but I didn’t do a very good job with this coat. I’ll have to get photos with the collar buttoned up sometime, it looks very different!
Expect more outerwear soon!
J.Crew Colletta coat (better sale in stores though), Love Quotes scarf, Charlotte Russe dress, We Love Colors tights, Gap mohair socks, J.Crew wellingtons.

i want to buy this coat, but your pictures make it look a little bright.
is this an accurate depiction of the color?
Alex Elizabeth says
Hmmm tough one, color depends on display settings too. I’d say that this coat looks a little different depending on what you wear with it– it’s picking up the tones of my extremely bright pink scarf in these photos, but with white or some other darker scarves I have it looks a bit different. Also the amount of snow on the ground is really reflecting light up on the coat, it is a bit darker and maybe a bit muddier in person? I hope that helps you decide!
