I resisted the urge to title this post, “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road.” 😉
This street is near my dentist’s office, and every time I drive past it I think what a great backdrop it would be for an outfit shot. So Saturday evening as le Monsieur and I were on our way out to dinner, I grabbed the camera and asked him to make a slight detour. He was very jumpy about me (and the camera) poised in the middle of the street even though there was minimal traffic, so it was a very rushed photo session.
That’s the Theory top I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it’s definitely a winner. (Even though the style is currently sold out in Black in most sizes, keep checking back if you’re interested. Often items become available again once people start returning wrong sizes, etc.) The silk is opaque enough that I don’t need a camisole underneath, but lightweight enough to not stifle. This one’s definitely going with me on our Hong Kong trip in a few months.
The glasses are the same pair I’ve been wearing the last few months, but as I’m often too lazy to switch back and forth between regular glasses and sunglasses, I had the “Transitions” lenses added which automatically darken in bright light. Sometimes function wins out over form, but I think these look good as sunglasses too.
I’m usually not a clutch gal, but had picked up this one from Clare V. last year with a gift card and it seemed the perfect bag for the outfit. The bracelet is one of the two I purchased in Paris at the Metal Pointus boutique in the Marais.
Earrings: vintage from Beladora. Similar style with emeralds. // Top: Theory // Jeans: NYDJ purchased last year, similar (and on sale!) // Clutch: Clare V. purchased last year, similar // Bracelet: Metal Pointus. Similar shape in silver // Shoes: Belle by Sigerson Morrison.
These Belle by Sigerson Morrison wedges are quickly becoming one of my favorite pairs of shoes. They are comfortable, walkable, and look great with just about everything.
What’s the craziest place you’ve ever posed for a photograph?
I’ll be linking up (bien sur!) with Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style, because it doesn’t get much more visible than standing in the middle of the street!
