Let's talk about the jump shot.  I was on the tree.  I said "Hey, these shoes have low heels, I bet I could do a cool jump shot." 1...2...3...That is so not the cool jump shot I had envisioned, more like a dork shot.  But wait...I'm a blogger, I can try again and no one will ever know it wasn't perfection on the first try.  I present you with the slightly less dorky second attempt. :o)  I was game to go for round three, but Hubby wasn't.  Probably had something to do with the gopher hole I stepped off into on jump one.


PS: I was wearing umbrella earrings, but totally forgot to take a close up shot of them!  They really look more like beach balls anyways, so eh, whatever. :o)

Poppy and Fuchsia

Cha-Cha Bracelet: Flea Market
Butterfly Ring: Gift from Brother
Necklace: Great Grandmother's
Sweater: Banana Republic (old)
Silk Skirt: Thrifted
Heels: Dillard's (clearance, old)

I have wanted to wear Poppy and Fuchsia together since seeing Gracey of Fashion for Giants
do it quite some time back.  I wanted to link to the actual outfit, but now I can't seem to find it.  Boo!

So, ahem, let's pretend that I did NOT go to church without ironing my skirt.  It was curl my hair or iron my skirt...I took the most logical choice. :o)

That first shot was a "before I was ready" shot.  Hubby likes to sneak those in.  We both liked it for some reason, so not only did I keep it, I pushed it to the top.  I like to put my favorites first.

Art Nouveau

Gold Hoop Earrings and Pearl Ring: Gifts from Hubby
Ceramic Watch: TJMaxx
Bracelet: Gift from Mother-in-Law
Sweater: Thrifted
Vintage Heels: Thrifted

This outfit had that long and lean, feel like a super model vibe.  Of course I had to strike a pose. :o) I even had the wind in my hair!  I had another picture of the outfit more straight on, but the wind had parted my hair like a dork.  Yeah, leaving that one out was a given, I don't want to ruin my super model-ness. :o)

Meet Ernie, he wanted in on the photo shoot. :o)
