Plaid: BDG. Bought at Urban Outfitters
Trousers: Forever 21
Since the sun was going down when I was shooting this, I wanted to do a quickish post-so I decided to shoot at the Organic Market that I live across the street from. About halfway through shooting the most beautiful hunk of a car pulled into the parking lot…a 1978 corvette that just rumbled. One thing you should know about me is that I have a deep, deep, deep, love for old classic cars…And strongly believe they should only be driven with a stick shift. Now, don’t get me wrong corvettes are beautiful cars, and if someone wanted to give me one, I would have no problem accepting :) but they’ve never been my favorite. 1978 though, was definitely a good year for chevrolet. The wonderful man driving was much obliged to let us shoot with his car, and as you can see from my genuine smile in the last photo, it made my day, and this post.
As we progress into Fall and the days get colder…shorter, I find myself getting more and more excited to break out the wild prints for Autumn/Winter. Being from Colorado, I’m used to pants once summer ends…But last winter in Santa Barbara I discovered the wonderful joy of tights. Pants are no longer a must, in fact, I hardly wear them now…My winter will be full of loose printed trousers, lots and lots of leggings, and of course tights on tights. I’ve been waiting to do a post with these pants for some time now- I found these a couple months ago at Forever 21. I don’t go there too often, but every once in a while I pop in there and happen upon a great find. These pants were one of those. I love how comfortable they are and the fact that they have pockets makes me so happy- the simple joys you know…I paired them with a simple cotton tank from H&M and black booties. Then lastly, layering a BDG. Men’s Plaid flannel to add a pop of color, and to tie in that awesome leather tassel necklace.
