Worn to: YLF photo meetup (Alki beach for photos, Cactus for lunch, Starbucks for post processing), out to dinner @ Main Street Alehouse, over to Adam’s to play with feretts
Thoughts:Super action packed day for me today! A little while back one of the YLF forum gals, the fabulous Jenava, suggested we have a little meetup that focused on photography. So today we met up at Alki Beach over in West Seattle for a fun day of laughs, food, and some camera practice. Angie’s husband Greg, the guru responsible for all the backend web stuff for YLF as well as Angie’s gorgeous outfit photos, also joined us. I was most looking forward to chatting with him about his post-processing technique, and was happy to learn that our overall process is very similar. We all had a great time, and of course I took loads of photos!

UPDATE: Read Angie’s fab recap of the day over on YouLookFab!They’ve also posted a great little album of photographs from everyone.And lastly, there were many lovey photos taken of me during the meetup but here’s a link to my favorites of the day.
Afterwards, I met my husband for dinner and then we went to play with our friend’s ferrets while he’s out of town. For fun, some critter photos! Kitty has been dying to get outside all week (he’s an indoor cat), so today I let him out on the patio while taking my outfit photos. That’s one happy kitty! And Adam’s little ferrets are generally too quick to get decent photos of, but I was able to surprise Bert here long enough to snap one.

Behind the outfit:Today I wanted to wear something that would photograph well, or would at least look interesting in the photos. Brights aren’t usually a good option for very sunny days, but I wasn’t convinced that it’d be anything other than half cloudy today so I decided to do it anyway. (The weather sure showed me though, it was bright and sunny all day ^^)
After this past week of warm weather, today was cooler. This pencil skirt is lined, making it impractical for truly warm days but for a cooler warm day it’s perfect. I figured if anyone could appreciate some crazy pattern mixing it’d be the YLF gals, so I decided to go for broke and pair it with my silk peacock feather blouse; there is a bit of pink in the print, the navy picks up on the dark spots of the skirt, the sheerness allows me to layer a red tank underneath for a “hint of red”, and the breezy silhouette works especially well with slim bottoms. I added the nude fishnets for a touch of extra warmth, and even more pattern mixing. Finished the outfit off with my loafers, though I’m probably going to have to try some other flat footwear with my skirts after this! Left my hair down for added softness, and bright silver earrings to add some lightness.
This whole outfit is rather bold, and has a lot going on so I realize that it won’t be everyone’s cuppa tea. Crazy print mix (peacock, floral, fishnets), pencil skirt debombshelling, and more flats with skirts! I liked this outfit a lot, but my husband strongly disliked the print mix here.

Worn to: errands (Walgreens, Albterstons, Fred Meyer), Easter dinner @ my folks’
Dress, cardigan: TargetTights: DKNY (gift)Heels: Anne Klein (via DSW)Earrings, neckalce: giftsWatch: Fossil (gift)Trench: Banana Republic (via YLF swap)Scarf: Dress BarnPurse: Coach (gift)Shades: Forever 21 
Behind the outfit:Today’s dinner isn’t necessarily a dressy affair, but I know that my folks do tend to dress a bit nicer for Easter dinner as it’s one of the few holidays my mom celebrates. The pastel colors of Easter don’t do me any favors so I decided to wear something lady-like that hints at pastels, but with colors that are still saturated enough for my coloring.
It was most definitely too cold for this outfit BUT I wanted to wear it so I did! I started with the cardigan, which is the closest to a pastel clearly-non-casual thing in my wardrobe (recently pulled out for spring/summer). After looking over my dress options, I chose this one because I liked how the blue looked with the aqua cardigan (though a sweater dress would have been more weather appropriate). I wore nude microfishnets to mitigate a bit of the coldness, and chose my most lady-like heels to complete the “Easter vibe”.
Normally I like to wear a belt with this dress because leaving the exposed elasticy band really bugs me, but today I decided to just leave it be. I chose silver accessories to play into the cool colorway for the indoor look, and gold/leopard to contrast the cool colorway for the outdoor look. And hair up so it would say out of my food ^^

Worn to: work
Dress: Old NavyBelt: VansTights: DKNY (gift)Boots: Miz Mooz “Flynn” (gift)Earrings, watch: TargetTrench: Banana Republic (via YLF swap)Scarf: Steve Madden (via Nordstrom)Purse: Kate SpadeShades: Forever 21 
Thoughts:While I’ve put away nearly all of my winter items, these nude boots are going to stay out until the last possible second! I’m guessing around mid-April; the color could certainly be used all year but, regardless of color, tall boots just don’t feel springy enough to me. I do see plenty of women wearing their tall boots all the way up until the start of summer around here because our springs are just ridiculously cold and wet. If it stays really cool I may leave them out until the end of the month, but we’ll see how the weather goes. 
Behind the outfit:In light of wearing some cooler weather items, today I wanted to wear this spring dress with my nude boots again while I can because I just love the combo! Not quite warm enough to skip the hose, so I wore my trusty nude fishnets. To lighten the look up I added an ivory studded belt and white watch, and there’s a small peek of white camisole as well. I thought about a necklace, but I think I’mm starting to feel a bit off them after wearing so many pendants this past winter. So instead I put my hair up and went with long dangly gold earrings!
(And because it’s much colder than that sun may lead you to think, I of course needed a coat. To keep it light, I added my taupe scarf which picks up on the light boots and helps to bookend them against the dark coat/hair. And the bright orange purse is just fun ^^)

Worn to: Valentine’s! World Market spice shop, brunch @ Maximilien, walk through Pike Place Market, Seattle Aquarium
Dress: Old NavyBelt: thriftedTights: DKNY (gift)Boots: Miz Mooz “Flynn” (gift)Pearl earrings, necklace, scarf: giftsWatch: Anne Klein (gift)Trench: Banana Republic (via YLF swap)Purse: Coach (gift) 
Thoughts:Hubby and my’s Valentine tradition is a visit to the Seattle Aquarium, which we’ve done every year since we started dating way back in 1999. Mostly because I love fishies! Since Valentine’s is on Tuesday, we did our big date today and plan to have a nice fancy dinner at home on the 14th.
The first stop of the day was a great little spice shop (which we started incorporating into our Valentine’s after getting married) to restock on some of our favorite not-too-common spices since we don’t drive down to Seattle that much. David had made reservations at a great French restaurant nestled in Pike Place Market called Maximilien, where we had a yummy brunch. After eating we moseyed through the market, and David bought me the pretty dried flower bouquet I’m holding in the photos above. We also stopped by a couple other great spice shops in the Market, one of which where I was delighted to find dried jasmine flowers in bulk (so good in tea!).
Then it was off to the Aquarium, where we grabbed some coffee before starting the rounds because it was coooooold out. I took lots of photos of fish (as usual), and I’ve posted a bunch so you can enjoy our trip to the Aquarium with us:

We had a great time! Hope you all enjoyed the photos ^^
Behind the outfit:This is the pretty dress I picked up from Old Navy a few days ago, and I can tell it’s definitely going to be great for spring once the weather warms up a bit. My husband is not a fan of tights but he loves dresses and skirts, so I wanted to make today’s outfit look somewhat like I didn’t need to wear something warm on the bottom half. I chose my nude fishnet tights and paired with these taupe boots to give a “nude” effect and still be warm enough. Love how it looks!
I struggled a bit with the belt, though. The dress has an elasticized waist and I am lacking in belt options which are short enough to wear at my waist, since I usually wear my belts in pant loops. I ended up picking this one because the dark brown picks up on my hair, and the boots are sort of brownish so it “goes” but doesn’t “match”. I belted it on the smallest notch, and then used double-sided tape to stick the looooong overlapping end back to the belt (with mixed success). I’m really happy with how this outfit turned out, and have to say that these boots were great for walking around all day.

02.10.2012 [fri]Neutrals week: black/gray/denim
Worn to: work, date night dinner @ Mukilteo Lodge
Dress: LOFTJacket: GAP (thrifted)Tights: DKNY (gift)Boots: Miz Mooz “Flynn” (gift)Pearl earrings: anniversary giftNecklace: YLF Secret Santa giftWatch: Anne Klein (gift)Coat: Worthington (via JCPenney)Purse, scarf: gifts 
Thoughts:Neutrals challenge day five! I just realized I’m wearing a lot of gifts today, I sure do know how to ask for the things I like ^^ This is the debut of the pretty boots my sweet husband bought me for xmas! Why did I wait so long to wear them you ask? In a few words, I am lazy. In a few more words, I need to waterproof them and I haven’t yet and it’s always wet/rainy and I was afraid to ruin them. I still haven’t waterproofed them, but I just couldn’t wait any longer to wear them!
One interesting thing about the leather these boots are made of: it’s much more taupey/gray indoors, but when in natural light they become much warmer looking. If I showed you an indoor photo of them, you wouldn’t believe it’s the same boot! I do wish this was the other way around since I spend more time indoors than out, and the outside color is just gorgeous with my skin and functions like a nude.
Behind the outfit:Today’s outfit formed around the dress, and this was the second outfit I put together for this challenge at the start of the week. Because this dress is neutral colorblocked I knew it would be perfect for this challenge! I also wanted to sneak another shot of blue denim in, and was pleasantly surprised to find that this jacket fit over the dress’s wide dolman sleeves; it’s just a little bit too long over dresses, a more cropped version would certainly be cheekier and is on my list to buy for this upcoming spring/summer season.
Since most of the week’s outfits were primarily dark (winter and all) I thought, to lighten this look, having more exposed skin instead of adding white would be fun. So I planned to wear these boots and crossed my fingers that it wouldn’t be pouring by today. Happily the weather cooperated! It’s definitely still too cold to go tightsless, so I added these nude mini-fishnet tights (you may need to load the full size image to see ‘em). If you haven’t ever given this type of hosiery a try, I HIGHLY suggest them! They are super fantastic for transitional and mild weather, and as an added bonus add a little extra textural interest.
I had originally planned on wearing my brass and pearl bib necklace with this outfit, but since I wore it yesterday I needed to find something else instead. So I decided to further play up the many vertical lines in this outfit and chose this long pendant. I had expected it to be cold enough to need both my wool coat and a warm scarf, but to my surprise it was quite mild so I ended up tying the scarf to my purse and ditching my coat.
