A few weeks ago, the weather hadn't quite turned nasty. Although the night before I took these pictures was rainy, it was sunny and hovering around seventy the day I took these pictures. Weather goes back and forth so often in Tennessee that it doesn't really feel like winter until January. And I'm typing this from my parents' house in Texas, where it is supposed to be in the 60s all week. I'm not complaining.
This outfit represents where my style has been headed lately. I no longer think that in order to feel dressed up I have to be wearing well...a dress. I've felt that way for quite some time, but it's really starting to hit home. I like to think that it's my tomboy roots coming back out. A girl can only handle so many peter pan collars and floral prints until she just wants to get something dirty. I joked on a cross country trip that sometimes I just like to dress like a thirteen year old hipster boy- band tees, beanies, skinny jeans, and Converse. The zeitgeist seemed to fall this way after Cara Delevigne rose to superstar status, but I'm not complaining too much.
The black and white preset from VSCO seemed to fit my mood for these pictures. I'll admit that I spent a lot longer than I should have playing around with my self timer remote to take some moody self portraits of myself, but I thought I'd spare you the extra selfies. Sometimes a girl just feels like she looks good....and possibly even better in black and white.
