I picked this blouse out from Modcloth and was excited about the pretty spring print and the little bow tie on the front. But, once I had it in my hands, I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to wear it. I tried it under a pair of overall shorts - definitely not for me. Under a corduroy jumper? Too hot. With a pair of vintage jeans? Too much blue. Tucked into a skirt? I couldn't find the right skirt. Finally I paired it with these high waisted shorts and everything fell into place.

Your man sure knows his way around a camera and you obviously are his perfect muse. i love your little outfit. it makes me want to go right out and buy a floral print top with bow and super sweet high-waisted shorts.

The setting for these photos is wonderful, the peeling paint and the green leaves through the glass. The shirt looks great with the shorts. Your photos are always so inspiring.
