Blouse: Thrifted Pant: Thrifted Shoes: Frye

I love this outfit today, but I'm not a huge fan of the background for the photos.  I was supposed to shoot in front of my, usual, Airstream bus, but there was a delivery truck blocking the way.  So, instead of getting to shoot great photos, I got a crowd of skeezy dudes straining their necks to see what I was doing 20 yards away.
I also decided to break out the old briefcase today, but alas, the strap is broken. Ugh.  So I was forced to carry it the old fashioned way all day.  Life is tough.

I love your top and briefcase! And ewww, skeezy dudes. That's why I always feel so awkward taking outfit pictures outside- skeezy dudes ALWAYS seem to be lurking around.

Agh, the discomforts of taking outfit shots sometimes. You look fabulous though, regardless of the backdrop! The blouse is lovely, especially with the peter pan color, and it really brings out your incredible eyes! I have been madly lusting after a briefcase like that, but I've sadly been far too broke to do anything about it. haha

November Grey said...

Stunning. All of it. The blues...the vintage browns that match your hair. LOVE.

Blue looks so amazing on you, esp. with your hair. I really love these pics. And yes, I hate it when people get nosy and stare during outfit pics. It can make things awkward. haha

I really love this look! The two shades of blue go together so well, and then the brown of the briefcase and shoes are perfect complements. Plus, I've always thought that red hair goes well with blue. Very sleek!

Aww I'm sorry the strap broke! I'm sure you can get it fixed! You find the best blouses, I swear. I have yet to find a vintage blouse with a Peter Pan collar. When I do, I will wear it everyday! Seriously!!! Peter Pan collar and pleats? Perfection!!! :)
