It's good to get out of the backyard

I must say that I admire those of you who go around scouting new locations for photos everyday; I've definitely fallen into a 'same place, same time' rut.
But this weekend, after buying my lottery tickets for Tuesday's drawing, because my wish is to be a millionaire (not too much to ask, really); I noticed that I was parked right besides this brick wall that happens to be a perfect place for some outfit photos. Sure, people walk by and they give you that extra long glance of "what the hell is she doing?" But it's worth it to be out of the backyard.

Love everything about this outfit. I wish I took more outdoor pictures but I just don't have a ton of time in the morning and the evenings are already dark...plus I look horrid so yes I give HUGE credit to people that scout locations for their photos.

I love the brick wall setting, did you use a tripod ? or did you have a little helper ?
These came out great, i like every single item you are wearing, specially those OH DEER shoes.

Kim said...

I'm too chicken to go outside to take my pictures. I admire all those who do though. Love the clutch!

hurricanekerrie said...

I love this clutch! It's packs a lot of punch in terms of personality and uniqueness!

I hate it when people actually gawk and stare... can't a girl just take outfit photos? :)

I like the new location! It makes your outfit stand out. I love that bag and how you looks so well put together.

Vanessa said...

love love love your outfit. super comfy. We want to know where did you get the bag......

Yeri said...

So cute, so chic, so breeeezy!! I love this. And I am in love with that purse.

indie.electronic.alternative. said...

good eye my dear. you bet your bottom dollar it's a sweatshirt blazer. i got it at the philly zara in fall of 2009, before it was cool to wear sweats in public (ahem, harem). zara was ahead of the game with the trend. if there isn't a local one check online! you can definitely online shop with zara! this is the only blazer i own because most of them fit too tight on my shoulders or too short on my arms. it's a guessing game but eventually you find the perfect one!

Emma said...

I am a new follower and I must say that I LOVE your shoes!

eek said...

Fantastic photos. I wish I had the nerve to take self portraits out in public!

Playing Hooksies said...

I like the bag. Now that it is light after I get done with work, I really need to get out and go to some new locations.

Melanie said...

Well done for getting out of your rut! And I'm in love with your necklace! Leaves are the way to go!

Krystal said...

ooo the leaf necklace is back, i love that! and this whole outfit, totally my kind of one :)

Cee said...

I agree completely, the wish to be a millionaire is not too much to ask at all :) This is why I, too, buy lottery tickets. Although I must say, you are looking fabulous in spite of not having millions. The brick wall is fabulous location and you look effortlessly chic in these photos. I am completely lusting after your clutch and necklace!
xox,
Cee

I always wind up taking pictures in my backyard. I'm not adventurous to go anywhere else. I love your necklace.

Amber Blue Bird said...

I absolutely adore that clutch! xo

Marie said...

What a perfect background for this outfit.

It makes all the blues and creams pop. It also echoes the reds and oranges from your shoes and bag!:D

Happy Monday, Lydia!:D

shealennon said...

Hey, great shirt ;) I feel the same way--I rarely stray from my yard for photos. Maybe you'll inspire me to change it up! Anyway, I love that clutch and those shoes--both so unique and pretty!

Valerie said...

Great bag! Love the color combination.

Ali said...

Cutey cute! I adore your little necklace. There is something about gold leaves, just something, a little something~~~ la la la.

I'm envious that you can go out and brave people's looks. I still fear that. I am like a shark who hides in a coral reef. That was a shatty comparison. Well. Anyway.. YOU LOOK GREAT! 8D

Mochachocolata Rita said...

LOVE the necklace muchhh! it makes the outfit perfect!

Mrs. J said...

I have to buy this months Lucky, I love/want that necklace, the print on that bag is wonderful and this outfit is fabulous. I would definitely wear every piece, thanks for the inspiration.


ps. I need to start checking google reader on the weekend. I always miss great outfits!

Alex Elizabeth said...

All I want for spring is a jacket but I can't find one anywhere. I love the piping on yours, nice subtle detail with the stripes :) I wish I had a convenient brick wall to pose by every day, but I agree, a change of scenery can be good!

D'Andra said...

what an amazing pair of shoes! they are so cute with that outfit!
