Blazer? Escada, thrifted Ombré sweater? Gap (similar here) Jeans? 7fam, swapped and DIY (similar here) Shoes? Ralph Lauren (here) Clutch? Thrifted Watch? c/o BCBG Bracelet? gift

It's kind of my thing to take pictures in front of a wall that matches my outfit perfectly. This is still one of my favourite matches and it was intentional, but these pictures from last weekend were a happy accident. It wast the wall that was on hand (walls are on hand now?) and things happened to match. I'm just thrilled to have some colour on the blog, things have been feeling a little blah lately (this might just be me, insert giant whine...).
I totally appreciate a good graffiti wall in an outfit post though. The only thing is that you need to scout your location to make sure there isn't anything wacky that you are happily posing in front of. Nothing worse than giving your best over the shoulder smoulder and having to discard the picture because there is a something awkward painted on the wall behind you. It's happened before... 
I think we're ok this time, good thing because I quite like these pictures. Thanks Julie!

Your hair is getting long! So pretty! These pictures look like a magazine photo shoot! You look great and I like how you have paired all the colors with a your pants.

You have awesome Mean Girl hair today. Too bad it's not Wednesday. "On Wednesdays we wear pink."

A true fashion blogger ALWAYS has a graffiti wall on hand. Can I just comment on how you're simultaneously doing two trends in one item. Hombre and acid wash. I never thought one pair of jeans could be so cool.

Oh, you must tell me where in #hamont this wall is because I love a good graffiti wall! In my mind there are only certain outfit combinations you can wear in front of a graffiti wall and this is definitely one of them. Love the blue blazer!

Linda said...

Goodness gracious Yen! These pictures are awesome. I can't believe you're just hanging out in an Escada blazer.

Anja said...

wow, how do you manage to make all these great thrift finds and find all those cool locations! awesome look and of course the blazer needs to wander into my closet asap :)

Laura said...
