Spring Fashion Week: III

Just when I thought Spring Fashion Week couldn’t get more fun, my girl Lexi stepped onto the scene. Not only is she a dear, dear friend, she is also a really creative and talented photographer (and don’t you let her tell you any differently… because she will. I’m serious, she’s talented, intelligent, funny, beautiful and humble – if I didn’t love her, I’d hate her.) I’ve chosen these particular pictures (there are a bunch more that were great, too!) because they’ll help me tell the story of our VERY FUN afternoon. Sunshine, mango smoothies and lots of laughter were on the menu. It really doesn’t get much better than that!

I call this one my “edgy look.” (Yes, this is truly about as edgy as I get…)

*Mustard yellow boyfriend sweater is from my favoritist of favorites Urban Outfitters last (?) year. The label says BDG.
*Black embellished tank is from Old Navy.
*Mini Jean skirt is from Express. Judging by the length I’m guessing I bought it in the ‘90s some time.
*Super cool black and white knee socks can be found here.
*Black boots AGAIN. I promise I won’t wear them EVERY day this week. But they are just my ABSOLUTE favorites!  But, I swear, I have other shoes.
*The key charm and chain were birthday gifts from hubby. I love it. He found it on Etsy, but he can’t remember where.
*The hibiscus necklace was a memento from a Hawaii trip several years ago.
*And those silver hoop earrings are probably the only thing that I own that I wear MORE than my black boots. You can NEVER go wrong with a nice silver hoop, you know?

Lexi said, "Give me some angst." I answered with a look that communicated, "Something smells bad."

Here, I'm channeling Ricky Bobby. "I'm not sure what to do with my hands."


Here I am dreaming of my future as a blog fashion model.  Lexi, you've altered my destiny.

See everybody tomorrow!!
