What I wore: Winter Outtakes 2015

Sweater dress: Thrifted
Coat: Wilson's Leather

Cropped sweatshirt: Forever21
Pleated skirt: Kohl's

Sometimes things just don't work out how you envisioned, you know? I mean, sometimes they do, and it's great! But that was not the case with these photo sessions haha.  I was only able to nab just these few from the sets that were taken because a lot of the shots just didn't turn out. Sometimes the photos are too blurry or out of focus, the lighting washed out the image, and more often than not, I'm making a silly facial expression.  Modeling for photos is not always quick and easy, let me tell ya! Anyway, I compiled a similar post last year, so feel free to check out 2014's winter outtakes if you're curious.

What I wore: Arrowheads & Fur

H&M sweater and faux fur vest: Thrifted.
Long necklace: Forever21

Faux fur bag: Thrifted

Leggings: Aeropastle

We took these photos in record time! So, I didn't have much time to play around with new poses and angles & stuff, but I have been eyeing this location for quite awhile! This bronze statue of a man carrying a canoe marks the original Portage Path, which was first traveled by Native Americans, later by French and English traders and trappers, and finally American settlers and travelers.  It was a dividing line between U.S. and Indian Territory.  So there's a little local history for you - which I felt matched my outfit because of the fur, which was something these historical people must have worn a lot in winter. I like the natural look and functional warmth, so I'm kind of obsessed this season. What do you think - thoughts on fur?

Glasses shopping with Eyeglass Discounter

Looks like it's time for new glasses! Unfortunately, my two pairs of clear frames have either broken (stepped on, oops) or are about to break, so it's totally time for some new ones.  I'm torn about this purchase, because I was really attached to my old pairs, but I'm excited to pick out something new at the same time! I don't know if you can relate, but for a nerd like me, a pair of frames is kinda part of my identity.  So, a careful shopper I have been! One of the places I've been shopping is Eyeglass Discounter, and these are my top three choices.  I love the sunny brightness of the transparent yellow pair, the galaxy-like coloring of the second pair, and the cool smoky-ness of the third.  The best thing about all three selections? They are all under 40 dollars.  That's a great deal on cute glasses, right? Anyway, I can't wait to share the pair I end up choosing, but I'm still shopping.  Where do you buy your frames?

I'm all about pink and purple these days!  These are just a few girly gifts I received over the holidays and thought they looked fun in a photo set together :) The nail color is my new winter favorite, for sure!
