"When I was young, lying in the grass, I felt so safe in a warming bath of sunlight." - Death Cab For Cutie
I actually wore this outfit today. Well, I say today, but by the time I post this it will probably be tomorrow. My last kid didn't fall asleep until 11pm, so I'm getting a late start on this. Anyway, the point is this outfit is pretty recent for a change. I didn't take outfit pictures at all last week due to the frigid temperatures, so I'm officially caught up. However, since the clock just ticked it's way to midnight while I was typing this, I'm now officially behind. Confused yet? I am.
I think it's safe to say that we have thawed out from the ice storm this weekend. The temperature reached 70 degrees today. I took advantage and broke out the peasant blouse I purchased during Anthro's holiday sale. I love a good peasant blouse, and this just might be my most favorite one ever. It has so many beautiful, muted colors in it which means it lends itself to going well with many items in my closet. This time I chose to go full on peasant style and pair it with a maxi skirt. I even braided my hair in a way that I thought complimented the look. Well, that, and it was day 4 of not washing my hair which meant I was going over my usual 3 day cycle, so I had to get creative with my dirty, greasy locks.
As soon as I put this outfit on, I knew I wanted to take photos in a grassy field with the setting sun in the background. Don't ask me why. It's just where my crazy mind immediately went. Luckily, we were able to find a good spot this afternoon. I must say, I'm in love with these photos. That's why you're getting 8 of them this time. I couldn't bear to edit them down anymore. For the first time in a long time, I felt really inspired by this outfit and the photos. Just like many things in life, writing a blog and coming up with outfit photos on a day to day basis can get monotonous and boring. Some posts end up feeling very forced. This one felt really organic, and I think that shows in the photos. Hopefully this is the beginning of more good things to come.
