The Ledge

I, like every other style blogger in the Midwest have been struggling with this never ending weather. It's so cold, grey, windy, and uninspiring. Most weeks I've been repeating the same few pieces and callin' it a day. I am currently without a tripod & my boyfriend is on a new work schedule -- so we have very limited photo taking opportunities. I mean, two months ago I was taking photos in a blizzard. But now? Now I'm over it. But then today, the temps hit 45 degrees, the sun was out, and the wind was only slightly brutal. Which was a perfect chance to wear this skirt from Erica. We all know how much I love the color pink & this has seriously been in my closet for about a month (sorry, Erica!)

When I was first discovering personal style, I was really into that whole matchy-matchy look. It's kind of embarrassing when I look back how much I matched. Which is why I tend to be more daring with color schemes now. But sometimes it's nice to fall back on old favorites.

Oh, and I scored this lovely necklace from Land of Plenty. If you are in or around Akron, go! All kinds of vintage items at very affordable prices. I could've spent hundreds of dollars. Instead I bought some necklaces & part of an animal jaw. RESTRAINT.

  3. You are reminding me of how much I'd like a pair of ombre tights. I've been thinking about it for ages but I never see them in the shops.

    I wanted to say thank you very much for your comment on my post about my insecurities around writing. I really appreciated the encouragement and it's what I need at the moment. And good luck with your own writing!

  7. Cool necklace! We've had temps in the 60's for a stretch of three days and then BAM! more snow/wind/low temps. It is nice to have the break but I wish it would stick already. Ironically enough, my tripod just broke yesterday as well. Thank goodness I have a backlog. I love your pink skirt and beanie! The tights are cool too!

  10. I hear ya! I knew I couldn't miss taking outfit photos today because tomorrow we're supposed to get more snow :( I used to do a lot of match-matchy business too, so it is nice to fall back on sometimes. I love your bright skirt and that necklace! Also, ombre tights? I need them.
