similar sweater // similar overalls // similar boots
I felt very Ally Sheedy in the beginning of Breakfast Club in this outfit today. 2 parts psychologically unstable, 1 part she's got a secret to hide. What could have been a cool hipster or brooding badass outfit was just sort of clumsy on me. I think next time I break out the overalls while it's still cold out, they will be accompanied by velvet ballet flats and a top knot to keep things a little more feminine and a little less clunky. 

Also, since I know you all love to hear about my photo-taking adventures, as I was taking these, a man approached his nearby car and asked if I had locked my keys in my car. I said no, I'm a blogger, and he proceeded to come closer and watch me fiddle with my tripod. Then he got back in his car, so I finished up and got in mine and drove away. AND HE FOLLOWED ME. Only for a few blocks until I made some frantic turns into a neighborhood, but still! Y'all, blogging alone in public is a struggle. #thestruggleisreal

  11. Wow. That's a wee bit terrifying that that guy was following you. Weirdo! Austin is full of them and usually not the good kind either. Yikes! Careful out there, girl! Carry some pepper spray. For real.

    You look adorable btw! I love that chunky sweater.
