Indian Summer...But Probably Global Warming

As I write this, I'm under exactly 4 layers of clothing, not including the blanket that has me wrapped up like some cozy chipotle. However, I can't complain, because up until this late- December week, the weather has been OUTSTANDING. 

Call it an Indian Summer, call it global warming, but I call it glorious- I KNOW IT'S SELFISH. Our planet is probably falling apart but I couldn't help but enjoy the unusually warm temperatures for December in Michigan.

And in Michigan, when the sun shows up past Nov. 1, the only logical thing to do was to throw on a tulle-ballerina skirt, my favorite flannel and head outside to enjoy it while it lasts. 

Tulle skirts can become too costume-y if not paired carefully. Try to offset the prettiness with some rough touches, like a leather jacket, moto booties or a cool t-shirt

Skirt: Abercrombie & Fitch (I know, right?). Similar here and here.

Shirt: Vintage from my Aunt's closet (what is family for?). Similar here and here.

Mock neck Bodysuit: Asos. IF YOU DO NOT OWN A BODYSUIT YOU ARE NOT LIVING THE LIFE YOU DESERVE. 

Boots: Old Sam Edelman. Similar here and here

Sunglasses: Elizabeth & James. Similar here.

This was my first time taking "real photos" since my Senior pictures, which was my worst nightmare. It's just not natural to lay on the floor with your name in blocks behind you.

I was beyond nervous and I have to give all props to my amazing photographer, Lauren Montgomery. She somehow made me feel comfortable, even as she was telling me to "walk with purpose" towards her. STILL DON'T KNOW HOW. But I'm very excited to learn with her!
