Sorry for the quick break. That apology is more like a sorry I'm not sorry kind of apology. We were in Austin over the weekend to shoot a wedding and we stayed a day later. We stayed for two reasons: 1) because Austin is the greatest city ever and 2) I am so sore after shooting a wedding that there is nothing that I can do besides sit and have food brought to me. I am not kidding -- shooting a wedding is like doing lunges and push ups for ten hours straight. (What I would imagine working out would feel like.) In heels, by the way. Why heels? Because I am ridiculous. That's why.
As you can tell, I really wanted to blend in today. I just didn't want to be noticed, so I went with my quietest outfit. There is just something so soothing about animal print and neon yellow, no?

PS: On Friday there will be a giveaway for Ily Couture, the shop behind my fab necklace!

  3. If this is a quiet outfit, I'm afraid of what a loud outfit would be! I am the same way when it comes to wearing heels. I know I'll regret it later on but I don't care. I always end up suffering after.

  4. This may be one of my favorite outfits you've done in a while! Not to say I don't love all your outfits, but this one makes me want to rip that skirt off of you and fight you until the deaths.  Just kidding.... No seriously, hand over that skirt!

    I've heard such great things about austin, I have to add it to my must visit cities!

    Shooting a wedding is probably the most fun workout! You don't even realize you're working out, right?

  29. Haha, I'd totally say that you're doing a fabulous job of blending in today, what with that bright yellow and fierce skirt. That necklace reminds me of the J. Crew bubble necklace, which I'm now putting on my want/going to get immediately list. Do you have a southern twang? I hope that's not a ridiculous question, but I was thinking about the fact that you live in Texas and all.

  42. It's so unfair that I got them last year on the clearance rack at Target. I never saw them again! They are knock offs of an old Seychelles style though, so it might be worth looking around ebay for those!

  90. Omgoodness dont even get me started. After my first photoshoot ever for an indian wedding {which are 3 days long} I basically had to unscrew my legs and throw them in a tub of hot water to soak because the rest of me couldn't move a centimeter. I did my first one in brand new platforms that were not broken in yet... ouch. Now I have awesome thighs haha
