what i wore :: sun through the trees

:: head to toe ::
scarf :: thrifted
glasses :: Warby Parker
necklace :: Dapper Toad
sweater :: thrifted
pants :: Winners
shoes :: c/o B.A.I.T.

I wore this the other day when I went to do some filming for a video series I'm working on. I didn't think it was going to be super hot out so I figured it was perfect weather for a sleeveless sweater. Because really, as much as I love this sweater, I don't find too many days when it is appropriate to wear it without a cardigan. 

As I was taking these photos I noticed that the sun had started to go down and was coming through the trees at the side of the backyard really nicely! I ran over and set up my tripod to snap a few shots and let me tell you, it is kind of tricky to get a really cool shot like the last one when you are taking it yourself and you can't see what the photo will look like. I really lucked out with this one and I am so excited about it! I really want to try to take more another night. 

Today I will be doing a bit of video editing and cat hugging. Sounds good to me!

  5. I smiled when I saw the sweater, cause I have one that is almost identical and it was also thrifted. And yes, way to take advantage of the sun setting. Beautiful!

    1. I use a remote to focus and I usually do multiple shots in a row, moving my hand slightly to try and get one where the small object in front is in focus. Sometimes it takes a few minutes but I am always able to get a good one!

  15. I really like your hair with that scarf. I always feel awkward wearing hair accessories with my glasses. You've inspired me to try again!

    1. Hehe, I recently posted another jeans outfit and people seemed into it so I thought I'd do it again! I have some large & in charge hips/legs but I like the term 'curves' better so thanks! ;)

  21. Lovely outfit! You always look fabulous in jeans!! :D I'm surprised you took the pictures yourself! The shallow depth of field on the one where you're holding out the flower is fantastic.

  24. I love your sweater! and your glasses! I am about to get some warby parker glasses myself. They're so awesome!

  25. I like this outfit! The hues are so happy and friendly! Your smile makes me think of one of my neighbors growing up; she's still one of the beautiful friendly people I know, and your smile as well as the rest of the details you share on the blog put you in a similar category to her.

    (Also, I ordered those shoes and I can't waiiiit for them to arrive. I mean, they did arrive, but they weren't the right size, so now I have to wait for them to arrive again. It's kind of like torture, only way less painful.)

  27. You are way too cute. I love seeing you in jeans! It's nice to be reminded that even the most super-stylish of us still hang out in jeans occasionally (and also, that jeans can look super stylish). I love the colour of your sweater, and that last sunset photo. Gorgeous.
