Don't worry, that third duckface picture was totally on purpose. Someone asked me the other day why I make that "duckface in all of my pictures" haha I wasn't aware that I did but I guess anything short of a full-toothed grin is undesirable. ;) I've come to realize I'm a smirker. I smirk always. Maybe that makes me have "Chronic B**chface" as Kris Atomic would call it, but that's just how I smilie! (Plus, smiling real big while having your photo taken in this fashion is kind of awkward! haha Like fake laughing!)

This outfit is a fun one for me. A summer white dress, a sweet swan cardi, a thrifted scallop clutch (my favorite thrift find ever!), and some industrial, borderline gothic, wedges to top it all off. It's such a mess but I love it. I actually wore this outfit on Sunday (sans these shoes, because it was raining) but they were fun to play up. I actually stuffed my Gee WaWa wedges into my purse the other night when we went to the City and Colour show so I could gain some height! 6 inches goes a long way when you're 5'2 and stuck behind what seems to be the tallest group of people ever! They're super comfortable too so that helps!

Today Mike and I are baking away! We're each baking a pie to take to Thanksgiving dinner at our respective families. He's baking a Blackberry + Pear pie and I'm whipping up a Chocolate Cookie Dough pie (!!!). Wish me luck because I've never attempted it before! I have to bartend tonight (would you believe me if I said it's typically the busiest night of the year?! I hope that's the case tonight!) but tomorrow is all about family time! Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. i love this location! where ever it is, you should shoot there more often. It is so dramatic and really lets you stand out!

    PS - that isn't a duckface! it is a kissy face and you look cute doing it. :)

  4. maybe it was the same person that asked why I "make that face in all my photos". I hate fake smiling too.

    I love those shoes, they look super comfy and I really like that you just went with the flow of this outfit, not worrying if it made much sense, because I think in the end it really came together! Pretty as always!

  5. I love how you team together different things and it always looks lovely! I would never ever have guessed you are 5'2! Your photos make you look so tall. I'm 5'2 as well and know the importance of heels also! :)

  8. Giiiirl that is not even CLOSE to a duck face. You're good.

    Also, your hair looks almost dread-y in a few of these photos, which is totally AWESOME. (In a clean, nice-looking dread way)

  11. I think you always look cute in your photos. There's so rule that says: A smile requires X number of teeth showing. :P

    Thanks for linking that Chronic Bitchface illustration. I definitely sent that to my friend who claims we both suffer from this haha!

  12. OMG every time I don't full-toothed grin in my picture, someone is always "you look so grim"... I was not aware I had to fake-model-grin in all my pictures!

    For the record, I don't think your face is "duck"y, and I like your outfit :)
