What I'm Wearing


photos by Tom b.

romper: vintage (Salvation Army)
shoes: vintage (Ebay)
flower: H&M
purse: vintage (America's Thrift)

Yesterday when my boyfriend and I walked to the farmer's market to buy the week's fruits and veggies we picked up a few extra apples to take to the horses and pigs at the Hans Herr House. After the animals were done munching on their treats, we explored the old barns where they still store some of the creepy old slaughter house equipment from when the farm was operating in the mid 18th century.

Wow! Creepy and beautiful at the same time! Those pigs look so cute! I can't believe that you can walk around and see all that great stuff! What an awesome day!

niki said...

i'm so jealous of all the sweet little rompers you manage to find at thrift stores! what's your secret?!

copperoranges said...

you look so precious in this lighting.

i love that you dress up, even for casual outings! although you probs dont even see it as "dressing up"!

The Clothes Horse said...

You look so sweet! I love the flower in your hair--the angle it's set at reminds me of a vintage mini-hat.

Heidi said...

AlicePleasance said...

I love the romper with those shoes! And the flower too is great, reminds me of Carrie in one episode of Sex & The City.
The location is wonderful as usual :-)

Nadine said...

Lady Smaggle said...

The flower is hot. I'm so into headgear right now.

Effie said...

I think we're on the same wave length, I just found an early 50's bathing suit that's very similar!! mines two pieces though. yours fits perfectly (strapless things can be scary sometimes!) and I really love that flower in your hair!

Niki: I think my secret is that I spend way too much time in thrift stores! ;)

copperoranges: I'm always looking for a reason to get dressed up. :)

the clotheshorse: I love vintage hats and really want to start wearing them more.

effie: Sounds cute! Can't wait to see it. I had to take this one up a bit so it would fit in the bust. As usual!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. You really pull those nude tones off! And the light and colours are perfect as usual.

Those are lovely shoes. I've been trying to look for those kind here in Manila, unfortuntely, still no success :( Help me?

thesil said...

Excellent blog!Love your style. You looks like Irina Lazareanu!

Emma said...

Your photos get more beautiful with every post!

Ash1314 said...

These pics are very well done! and the romper is too sweet....do you use some sort of lighting in your pics>? Because they have this mystical light/glow to them...that lighting is what gives your pics that extra something...how do you do it?

Sally Jane said...

Thanks again everyone!

aj: I found these shoes on Ebay. Just keep looking! I'm sure you'll find something soon.

thesil: Wow! Thanks. I think she's really amazing. Must the be fringe.

ash1314: All of the light in my photos is natural light. I never use a flash. It's important to use a tripod when there is low light so the pictures don't get motion blur. That's about it! :)

Dapper Kid said...

Beautiful photographs!! Love the flower in your hair, it looks super :)

Fashion Ivy said...

Cute romper. I like the lighting

Isabel said...

That is the outfit I have been dreaming of. I don't know how many times i have said this, but the brogues are just perfect!

elle said...

I love those oxfords! And the photo quality is so nice on these.

Ash1314 said...

awesome- thanks for the speedy response

Outi said...

The flower used as a hat is especially cute. Like the romper too; you've really hit a nice balance between dressy and casual.

I wonder if I only imagine it due to the recent post on circus-inspired outfits, but I am getting that certain under-the-big-top -feeling from this one too... :)

Nita-Karoliina said...

I love your romper, I love your shoes but I particularly love the flower piece in your hair. This whole series of photos is worthy of being in a magazine, really inspiring.
