Riverwalking


This is what I wore for the first half of yesterday. I ended up changing for the latter part of the day, but I'll share that outfit another time! We didn't have much going on yesterday and we wanted to kind of take it easy before throwing ourselves back into work today, so we opted to head over to the East Bank Greenway of the Cumberland River to shoot a few rolls of film. We took a few minutes to snap these outfit photos, too. Not the best or most flattering, but I'm wearing the daylights out of this dress since picking it up in Indianpolis this past week. In all of my years living in the Nashville area, I've never once ventured down to the East Bank (or Riverfront on the other side, either!) I'm standing at the southern most entrance of L.P. Field (where the Tennessee Titans play) in these photos and that's a fairly good indication as to why we avoid it haha Game days call for the most insane traffic ever, but Sunday was the perfect chance to check it out. You can see Nashville's iconic "Batman" building behind me, too! I can't think of a better way to frame the most notable building in our skyline.

I've been taking noticeable steps toward "accessorizing" lately. I greatly prefer gold over silver and layering up with bracelets has been super fun. This sweet arrow necklace from Creature Comfort ties in the gold + grey perfectly, if I do say so myself! It's dainty and sweet, that's for sure. Then the large spike bracelet totally gives a boost of edge. Or maybe I just think too much into it!

This cardigan is seriously years old but it's one of my favorites. It fits very loosely and it's lightweight, too, so it's a great Summer coverup. Also - how cute is this mustard belt on this dress?! I let it roll up and sit too high in these photos so it's super unflattering, but it's really a darling piece. The pleats on the blush colored skirt are just too much, I love it. I snagged it at a local boutique in Indianapolis called Pitaya. The shop girl was super sweet and friendly -- leagues above most of the other boutiques we stopped by. (I have a personal rule with myself never to purchase product from a shop whose associates aren't friendly and welcoming. Some shop-keeps didn't even acknowledge us with so much as a glance upon entering. Tangent rant over :P)

Mike and I booked our honeymoon last night! Finally! Wedding things are slowly but surely happening. I'm wondering when the fire will get lit under my butt about it all. As long as we end up married, right?! Still so much to do.... ahh. I'll share more about where we stand on wedding plans come Wednesday. I'm off to work on a few design commissions and send off the last bit of the invites for the happy day!

  1. That is a great outfit. How do you maintain your wig so well? I have a pink curly one similar to yours but it's a bit longer and it insists on fizzing out!

  4. The spiked bracelet looks so much like something I would wear and the cardigan doesn't look old at all, seems you take really good care of your clothes, do you have a special trick or product to do so? xx

  11. Your dress is so adorable, I love the belt! I feel the same about rude shop assistants, especially if their shop is small/not busy - how much effort can it take to say hello?

  13. That outfit is so cute, I love that shade of pink on you. So pretty! I get really frustrated with unhelpful sales assistants, I can understand if you are busy or whatever but if (as a customer) I say hi, or ask for help I expect to get it. Maybe I just find it so frustrating because I have worked in retail before, I see it from both sides, customers can be awful too! xo

  14. I love your sunglasses!

    I actually prefer shop assistants that don't say anything. I'm so socially awkward, I hate it when they start chatting to me!

    1. I can totally respect that, that's for sure. I do prefer shop keeps who don't hound me and just let me browse at my leisure, but a simple "hello" or "welcome" would suffice ya know? Ahh, tricky middle ground!

  15. You look so cute with your pink hair and and pink pleated skirt! You remind me of a cupcake doll I had as a kid. You flip her skirt over and put her hat on and she becomes a cupcake. Sounds crazy I know, but I actually found a pic http://cdn.thegloss.com/files/2011/02/dolls-490x367.jpg. I had the one on the left!

  19. I just can't wait to see all of the posts about your wedding and honeymoon! In the meantime, I'll enjoy everything else you have to offer. :) I absolutely love the light pink hair -- is it new? I feel like it was darker before. And this may be one of my favorite outfits of yours!
