Love at First Sight

Dress, Free People. Coat, Old Navy. Shirt, scarf, and belt, all vintage. Tights, Target. Shoes, Call It Spring, JC Penney. Bag, H&M.

     There are so many things that I love about this particular post. For one, this is an outfit that I have been dying to wear. The retro vibe and the added warmth of a collared shirt layered underneath a dress is something that I will forever be a fan of in the winter. Another clothing related thing that I love is the Free People dress (from where I got my styling idea online). One of my favorite Christmas presents of 2011, I always feel confident when I slip her on. Third, my loving boyfriend took the pictures and then treated me to a day of thrifting, dining, and movie watching for our pre-Valentine's Day Valentine's Day date. And last, but quite the opposite of least, this happened:

     Unfortunately, no, that beautiful puppy does not belong to me. But I think the story of the pictures is even better. Although I'm typically pretty shy about taking outfit pictures (especially with a tripod!), this is a case where being in the public eye definitely paid off. As Reid was taking the pictures, a high school aged boy started walking around with this gorgeous gal puppy in tow. I could hear the bell on her collar tinkling as she played with her owner: a benefit, considering that I was always aware of whether or not they were behind me. I heard the bell approaching, so I turned around and the kind young man asked me if I wanted to take a few pictures/ play with his puppy. I had to maintain dignity and self control but it took pretty much everything I had not to start jumping up and down screaming "YES!" 
     There are some things that happen that I am truly glad are preserved with pictures.
