Overbitter

I found this little "fair" set up in the mall parking lot. It wasn't operating and looked perfectly sad. It made for a pretty sweet back drop.

My parents recently bought a swimming pool and I've been spending lots of time floating around and being completely lazy in the sun. I'm not a fan of summer or the heat, so the pool is doing a great job at helping me forget that it's been 90+ degrees.



Outfit Details:
Skirt: Swapped
Shoes: Payless
Top: Wet Seal

  1. These photos are wonderful. The fair is such a fun back drop. I really love this whole look - the hat and shoes are perfect :] I am super jealous that you have a pool. I would spend so many hours floating about if I had one.

    Also your legs are sooo soo long!

  3. Shucks, the backdrop (and of course you) are too darn cute for words! I need to find a little fair to pose by this summer, but I'm so scared of all of the stares from my fellow Mansfieldians.

  4. What a crazy cool place for photos! Amazing! And I love the simple and cute black look today. That circle skirt makes your legs look totally lean and looooong!

  5. I do love the fair backdrop! They've been setting these up all over the parking lots in Fresno, so maybe I'll have to sneak in one for some photo ops. LOL. Love your hat and you always look so good in A-line skirts! <3

  8. That is the perfect backdrop! Fairs are so much fun, hopefully you get to take advantage of it when it's running too!

    And 90+ degrees sounds awful! Hang in there!

  9. Such an awesome backdrop! How random to come across an abandoned fair at the mall. I love this look....I think basic black and white just might be my favorite combination.

  24. i'm so jealous of these photos. i actually read this post the other day, but i dont comment on my ipad because its hard. this is an awesome place to take photos - it looks like you were in a fashion shoot, which i guess you kinda were! this skirt & top go together so well - they are like two pieces of a puzzle. plus they look great on you - and i always love this hat!

    i'm jealous of the pool too. i suppose my apartment complex has one though - but i like pools in backyards like that better!
