orange blossoms


 Caroline Mitchell dress, Target coat, vintage sunglasses, Miss Shop booties, Coach bag (borrowed from Izzy!) and Revlon lipbutter in 'Raspberry Pie' 

Izzy (from Views of Now) and I spent the day together with an interesting mission: to find the perfectly pretty location for our outfit pictures. And, we definitely were pleased when we came across the ideal: a white picket fence with beautiful vibrant blossoms and the perfect amount of sunlight. It was the most gorgeous morning... we hadn't hung out at a weekend in ages so having heaps of good laughs and mucking around in between photo taking was the perfect remedy to take our minds off pesky homework and such. You can take a peak at the rest of the photos and her nifty outfit here

This may not be too hard to believe, considering I'm a complete spaz in 'real life', but I simply refused to walk up the hill to this location in heeled booties so I (brace yourself!!)... WORE CROCS IN PUBLIC. I know. It was hard for Izzy not to laugh at me when I was wearing these hideous black concoctions on my feet whilst taking her photos.  I don't know about you, but this vintage  inspired outfit didn't really go too well with them. A few cars drove past and the stares were inevitable... but my feet were comfy and that's all that mattered. Oh, and don't even think about asking to see pictures of the crocs with this outfit. Not happening!

I picked up these snazzy sunglasses yesterday... at first only for giggles but I realised how much I love them! They are so huge and fabulous and even better, only knocked $2 off my bank account! Op-shops truly are gold mines on good days ♥ I hope ya'll have an amazing up-coming week. 

All images taken with Izzy's nifty Canon!

Ahh you two are PRECIOUS <3 <3 And I have actually worn crocs a few times as well - I'm not proud to admit! D: There have been a few times where I am going out the door to fetch the mail and the only shoes around are the crocs ;~; But anyway, these pictures are beautiful and I love your outfit <3 <3

Chyrel Gomez said...

Well, the photos are amazing so it's completely forgivable to wear crocs in public. XD

Happy Weekend!

Really diggin' your glasses! Also that coat is quite something too - i've noticed you have a wonderful selection of coats.

The crocs comment made me laugh. My dad has a pair of crocs and of all the colours he chose pink... he has now upgraded to a black pair. I think he's past the age of really caring about what he wears haha!

That jacket is absolutely gorgeous! You look lovely!
