Why: First up, can we give a collective round of applause for the personal style bloggers that take their OWN photos each and every day? It’s hard stuff! Adam is under the weather so I took my camera and tripod into my favorite alley to do self portraits this morning. From 2007 - mid 2009 that’s how I shot my photos, but honestly, it’s just way easier with a willing photographer. So kudos to those of you who take your own shots each day!
Now can we talk about this funky pattern play? I bought this cardigan last week at the Madewell Style Session event in Indy. I’ve been shying away from cardis for the past year or so, but this pattern is just so cool! It’s like a chevron modernized (if that’s a thing?). Anyways, I really like it and L-L-LOVE how it plays off of this polka dot dress.
The last time I wore this dress I paired it with a tough leather jacket and paired it with black, but I love that navy works too! The yellow belt addition is something I would have wore in the early days of What I Wore. I’ve been eyeing through my old archives and I’m surprised by how many ideas and outfits I want to repeat! Never feel like you can’t wear the same exact combo twice (or three or four or twenty times!)
