At The Park

This park/school was randomly found yesterday, while enjoying a nice outing in the warm sun. It's such a nice place to go for a walk and also to most importantly, take outfit pictures!

It had been awhile since I have gone to take outside pictures and capture the beauty of the great outdoors, so you can imagine how happy I was, when my special person most pleasantly agreed to take my pictures for me. I usually take my own pictures on the trusty old tripod, but every once in awhile I have the help of two of my friends to take them for me, and boy, is that nice!

It's awesome when one doesn't have to keep running back and forth from camera to location just to take a few outfit pictures. It's also nice to avoid those weird looks from strangers that comes with taking your own outfit pics. Girls, I know you can feel me on this!

So yeah, about the outfit, it's very simple. I wanted to try print mixing  to change things up a bit and I think it worked out fine. The colors in the floral skirt really mixed well with the black and white stripes, I thought. I have been wanting to try print mixing for awhile but I was always so unsure if I could find the right combinations. A lot of people don't really understand the mixing of different prints because we are so used to pairing a print with a solid color, but all I can tell you is that, all it takes is a bit of confidence and creativity and you have an awesome unique outfit created entirely by you!

Lastly, I want to share with you guys the luck that I had while thrifting with my mom. If you guys read my outfit description below, you would see that I scored an authentic Coach leather belt, all for only 3.00! I mean how much more luckier can a person get! I have never been able to score a designer piece at the thrift store and wouldn't you believe how excited I was when I found this baby!

Usually to get pieces like these around my town you would have to acquire it from the glass encased part of the thrift store, which usually means you will be paring more for it than it hanging on the rack. So you can understand my excitement when I saw it hanging there amongst all the other belts, just waiting for me to pick it up and buy it. Good thing I had the urge to look for a belt or else, I would have never had found it.
