I decided to go back to the loading dock in downtown Bryan from this post the other day to take photos, I got there at the absolute perfect time for lighting.. but I don't think I've mastered the whole "back lighting" technique. Actually, I'm not sure if it's really possible with a tripod? Maybe, but it'll take much more practice on my end to get it right. I did get a couple that were decent though, so as an appreciator of good style blog photography, I'm pretty happy.
For some odd reason, my utility jacket got lost in my closet, okay.. that's not odd, and kind of happens on a daily basis, you guys haven't seen my closet, it swallows things alive. But, when I couldn't find it after thinking up this outfit the other night, I kind of freaked out and went on a cleaning spree. It was recovered beneath a crate full of bags and beach towels, the same crate I skinned my shin in the middle of the night the other day.. darn you crate! I found it though, and was so happy to wear this outfit all day long. Basically, I was in neutrals heaven. The one negative: these flats. They are not comfortable..at all, and make me want these Madewell skimmers even more every time I wear them. If anyone has seen some cute leopard flats recently, hit me up! I'm in serious need of new ones and can't afford $118 flats.. I will say though, it may be that these particular flats are too small for me, so I may just need to size up.
Random Kristina musing of the day: I wanted to tell all of y'all, every time I look at that picture of the yellow rose above, I start singing this song. I feel like Texas has a lot of songs about it. Do other states have songs about them (besides state songs and such)? I genuinely want to know!
