What I wore: Celebrate with Florals

Tiny floral blouse and backpack: Thrifted
Pants: American Eagle
Shoes: Francesca's, first seen here.

                                   Earrings: gift

It finally happened: spring showed up yesterday! So after work, Mr. Blue Sky and I practically flew to the park for a long walk and it really lifted our spirits.  Just like this outfit, for me! Sometimes I lose faith with thrifting because y'know, sometimes you go home with nothing.  But I found this perfect-fitting blouse and super handy backpack last time I went, and I thought they went nicely together.

Sorry I've not been showing my face in photos much, anyway!  Been workin' on my pretty facial expressions, and my camera guy is still learning about angles and lighting, so that's been tough when it comes to outfit photos for us.  Honestly, I have been trying to think creatively about ways to cover my face since I'm so shy about it sometimes. Any ideas? And hey bloggy ladies - what are some challenges you've experienced when taking outfit pictures, and what have you done to "make it work"?

What I wore: The Magic Vest

Long-sleeve black thermal: Old Navy
Tan pants: American Eagle

Velvet vest and earrings: The Buckle

The snow is keeping me in neutrals, it seems! I'm a sucker for historical clothing, so this vest is probably an expression of that, as it gives a nod to the corset.  However, the earrings actually look futuristic to me, so I think they (and the pants of course) keep this outfit modern and not costume-ish.  Although, secretly it does make me feel like an alien princess during medieval times or something! Haha. Anyway, just another comfy work outfit.  Can't wait to get into more color when the weather warms up!

What I wore: Gray Days

Marled crop sweater & thick knit tank: H&M
Corduroy pants: Thrifted

Marble earrings: Thrifted

Faux snake bag: H&M

I gotta say, I love playing with neutrals! And of course if you've seen any of my past outfits, you'll have noticed my obsession with textures.  It was actually raining in these pictures, but I have a lot to be thankful for these days, and I know spring is right around the corner, so being outside in the wet cold was easy this time!  Anyway, this is an outfit I've worn to work, just something somewhat polished, yet very comfortable. In the past, it seems like I've had an aversion to black and white, but now the combination is growing on me :)

Studio Tour: Release Yoga

Here's another of my favorite yoga spots!  In my New Years resolutions post, I mentioned I wanted to do more hot yoga, so I thought I'd show ya where I do it.  This is one of my favorite studios in Akron.  You can find them on the web right here, if ya like.  And if you're in the area, do stop by for a warm (literally) and friendly yoga class!

Fun apparel in store, for sure.

Pretty journals and some awesome looking books, too.  In fact, they have a library shelf where you can borrow books!

Snacks and drinks available, which is always nice!

And of course plenty of towels for all the sweatin'!

If you're curious about more studios in the Akron/Cleveland area, you can check out a few I've documented in the past.  Here is a studio in Fairport, one in Canton, and one more in Akron.  Anyway, happy yoga-ing, guys!
