Chambray All Day 5

My friend Babe and I have been having fun scouting out cute spots to take pictures during our lunch break. This pretty apartment building is just a short walk away from where we work. While we were taking pictures, someone who actually lives in the building came by and I almost backed right into him! Luckily he was amused by what we were doing and didn’t seem to mind that we’d commandeered his doorway. When people passed by on the sidewalk, we would shout things like “The magazine is going to love this!” which of course is totally silly since there’s no magazine. However, it did make me laugh and feel a little more at ease- I still tense up when shooting in public!

I love this little chambray shirt. I picked it up for a steal a few years ago and I wear it all the time because it goes with everything. The arrowhead necklace is a recent purchase from Forever 21. I haven’t bought any new clothes recently, but I wanted to at least switch up my outfits with a few new accessories.

Oh boy, I don’t know how it is where you live, but the humidity has been out of control here recently! I put my hair into a braid this day just so that it wouldn’t look too crazy. Alex and I have been joking that soon we’re going to have to run around the city naked because it’s so hot (just kidding, of course).

One last little note: Happy Birthday to my youngest brother– the baby of the family and my little sweetheart.

    Love the bag and the arrow necklace :) I would love some humidity over here! It is getting so cold here and we are awaiting gale force winds and rain :(

    • Thanks Kat! I wish I could give you some of our humidity! haha :)

  • This is definitely a perfect little location for a photo shoot. I love this outfit – I honestly would never have thought to tie a chambray blouse over a dress! I guess that’s just one more reason chambray is perfect in every way. :)

    I hope you have a great weekend!

    • Thank you Jackie! Happy to provide a new outfit idea- I tie my chambray shirt over dresses with spaghetti straps all the time so I can cover up a little for work :)

  • Ahh, you look so cute! I love the top and the necklace is the perfect touch. Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Thanks so much Jenmarie! Hope you had a great weekend :D

  • Perfect outfit for this impossible weather. And, haha, sometimes I imagine I’m posing for a publication, too. The way we dress is so personal and organic; I think it’s natural to feel a little weird contriving photos of it.

    • Thanks Alison! Yes, it does make it a little easier to pose if I imagine I’m doing it for some other reason :)

  • Hahaha the magazine is going to love this… nice!

    • Haha, I know, we’re silly! :)

  • Kati

    You are so pretty and I love your knotted shirt!

    Have a great weekend,
