Hello and Happy Friday!
TGIF am I right?!
I cannot tell you how happy I am to see Friday! It has felt like such a long week! Granted it has been a pretty good week, just long and exhausting. I am ready to sleep in!
On to today's look! I feel like this has Velma vibes from Scooby-doo. It was not intended but as I was editing that is when I noticed it!
I LOVE this look! Not only is it a fun, flirty look, it's also warm!
Fun styling fact: this is actually a sweater layered over a dress!
Every piece in this look has been loved and restyled over several years!
Especially the sweater! I have had it for several years and I cannot bring myself to part with it. For one thing there is no reason to! I still wear it, it is in good condition, and it still brings me joy. I love the large leopard print. I find it unique and full of character.
Secondly and now more importantly, it was one of my close friend's favorite sweaters of mine. My friend, Santi, who sadly passed away earlier this year, loved this sweater!
I remember vividly going out one night to dinner and wearing it and he kept commenting on how much he liked it! I'm not sure why this sweater stuck out to him so much but that is seared into my memory and every time I wear it, I think of him!
It was not my first choice. I actually wanted to shoot at this really pretty pergola that faced a huge pond, but it was closed off for an event. So, I went with this nature trail nearby. I figured I would shoot and see how the pictures turned out and either use them or go back and try to get the pictures I wanted.
While editing though I found I really like how these turned out. The colors all correspond well, the look itself pops, and the clouds that day create kind of a haunting lighting.
Thank you so much for reading! I wish you guys a great weekend ahead! See you Monday! =)
