Sentimental Heart

While I was editing these photos today I  had a bit of a laugh and came to a few conclusions.
- I desperately need a steamer! 
- Why, oh why does my backyard look like an abandoned, desolate area?
- I really need to stop sitting on my sunglasses, and/or invest in some that last longer than a day, now that it's officially Spring!
- There are actual pom-poms on the curtains in my garage.... seriously. I think I accidentally cropped them out of these pics, but check out last post if you don't believe me! I may have to add pom-poms to all of my curtains now. Very Isabel Marant! Hehe

Dress: BB Dakota
Vest, Scarf and Belt: Thrifted
Leggings: Winners
Boots: Le Chateau

So, I'v been doing this blog for just over a month now and I'm still getting used to the whole semi- narcissistic picture taking. I just feel so awkward! I don't know how other bloggers take their photos out in public (gasp!). Hmm... maybe it comes with practice. Anyways, this brings me to the above photo. In my opinion this is a more "real" shot of me! Just take a moment and look around it....I'll wait. 

Note the gaudy green wall (that I love!!), the random hole by my oven (long story) and the huge plaster patch job! I was going to crop it so that no one would be the wiser but I figured this was a bit more personal! So there you have it (do you feel like you know me more now?) :)

Mmmmm! Gotta love enjoying late night baking the following day! 



  1. i feel akward in my photos as well. i'm getting ready to head out to the park to snap some photos. it can be really akward when bikers and joggers pass by while i'm posing.

  2. You look darling in your photos! I love your wrapped over belt! And that cake looks too amazing.. ugh! Haha! :)

  3. Thanks for your comment today! And thanks for the link!! I also feel suuuper awkward taking photos of myself, I live in an apartment building and was trying to take some outside and felt like such a fool any time a car pulled in to the lot! I'm assuming it gets easier as you go. Don't worry, you don't look awkward at all, you're cute as can be!

  4. Hey, I really, really like this outfit! Super cute and I'd love to wear it myself :) Your pics are great! I know what you mean about feeling rather narcissistic with the picture taking--I feel the same way. I do find it to be a lot of fun though, so I just look around at the other blogs and think, hey, lots of other gals are doing this so it's not like I'm the only one! lol
    Nice to meet another newbie fashion blogger and cool to hear your thoughts on the whole thing. ;) I posted some newbie thoughts awhile back on my blog too.
    I added you to my blogroll! Keep having fun with this! :D


  5. I love this outfit. The scarf is just the perfect touch! youre adorable. Found you on Chictopia.

  6. You look great. I love that color purple on you. And that chocolate cake is making me drool!

  7. Oh I've totally been debating getting a steamer for so long now! Love the layering here :) you look fab girl

  8. I agree, the photo taking is awkward, but in many ways easier than using models (also oneself just seems to be around when needed). I think you are doing very well and are looking gorgeous - But the sitting on the sunglasses should really stop.

  9. Great pics... yummy looking cake(I'm dieting), lovely basket weave white plate...
    I collect white ironstone...


Thanks for all your lovely comments, they never fail to make my day! xx
