… Way more than I believe in pretty! Monsieur and I were looking at someone-or-another’s blogger photo and I pointed out how pretty she looked, and put together the photo was. He nodded his agreement and I laughed because she took such a classic fashion blogger picture, while I? I take these pictures
Ah, well. Monsieur said he likes mine more anyway–“Your photos are way more fun”. He should know–he’s the one who takes them after all.
I have no idea if I’ve mentioned that before. Have I? Monsieur takes the majority of the photos (particularly the ones where there isn’t a corresponding background that Stripes has!). I’m a lucky girl, I know!
I had a “higher up” at work approach me at a meeting today. She’s super friendly and I like her a lot. Anyway she walked over and started to say something but paused, and looked at the rest of my outfit, and what came out was,
“I always notice your… tights…”
I think I distracted her with everything else going on. She asked me how many pairs of tights I own, and I guestimated around 20 (honestly more like 12 – 15, as I think back **Updated: So I just finished laundry and I counted. I have 27 pairs of tights. I almost feel ashamed..). This took her by surprise, but I balanced it out–most people don’t realize it, but I only have 4 pairs of pants. A pair of jeans, brown cords, red denim, and mint green pants. So, you know, my tights balance out my skirt-heavy wardrobe. She nodded, because that makes a lot more sense.
Yes, these the new tights mentioned in my Not So Guilty Confession post. They’re soft like butter and really pretty. So I’m pleased with them. Enough to make me act like a ballerina, I guess.
Oh and in case you’re curious about the crazy forest I’m having my pictures taken in, it’s actually my front yard. My house in on a huge slope and I think the landlords are terrified of touching this crazy mess of ivy and blackberries because they’re very probably the only thing holding the hill (and house) up. Eep!
And as for the rest of the outfit…
Shirt & Dress: Thrifted/ Tights: Nouvella/ Shoes: Soda/ Necklace: Gift, Charming Charlie
Apparently it, too, is ballerina-worthy! It was a super cute outfit, and it is one I know I never ever ever would have tried without the 30 for 30 Challenge pushing me. So yay! Personal (style) growth!
Alright and time for a normal photo, just so I can prove that I am capable of taking them (every now and then)
