In knots

I think I often go for the same color schemes on consecutive days. Like wearing black and white three days in a row. Sequentially this outfit came the day before the one I posted yesterday, and after this one... I hate to go all out of order because I feel like there is a certain loss of authenticity when I don't blog what I was actually wearing today - but today was filled with darkness and rain, so what is a girl to do?

Trying out some different photo processing - yay or nay? {to compare}

  6. I stick to the same color scheme a few days in a row a lot. Why not stick with what works?

    I really like the lace skirt! And the new photo processing looks nice.

  9. Oh I love this outfit! I particularly adore your shirt and belt! Personally, I struggle to find button up tops that don't gape across the bust so well done! Hehe!

  14. Black and white is always such a chic and classic combo - and that belt is an amazing piece! I really need to get better about downloaded my photos and posting them daily - I hit it 2 or so days out of the week but between my part-time job, auditing a class and teaching, and doing my own research on new projects and the dissertation I usually wind up having 4 or days a week where I'm working from 8 am to 11 pm and photo stuff just falls by the wayside. Hopefully things will stabilize next year after I graduate though!

  19. I like the photo editing, definitely more autumnal in tone than the goldeny editing you had for much of the summer. Both are pretty!

    And, yup, I definitely get in color scheme ruts... I often do!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm the same... Whenever I get a color scheme that I like, I just keep on going. Then, I worry that it looks too monotonous on the blog. But I can't help it! black and white just look so good together!

    Love the silver belt. I'm sooo into Celtic designs!

  24. It looks sunsetty, a little vintage/sepia. Would also look awesome when the leaves turn and you get some nice orange and yellow. And that belt, for real. I have one with a knot detail like that, but the composition of yours way cooler.

  25. Love this look! I love me some color, but sometimes black and white just fits the bill- so chic!

  49. I like the shirt with the texture and color of the skirt!! It's hard to explain what we chose to wear in our closets on certain days, just go with it :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I say nay...
    and i usually go weeks around the same items, that is until i wash them.
    color schemes... not so.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow, that belt is really cool. I had a bracelet like that, but it was super cheap and broke before I could wear it...sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love this! I do exactly the same thing, wear similar shapes or colour all week!

  53. That belt is amazing. I didn't realize I wore series of colors until someone mentioned that I wore plum three days in a row, so I suppose I may have a problem with that also.

  54. I like the photo finish it looks nice and almost has a vintage feel to it. I love this outfit and need your belt. I think that's my new obsession for Fall more cute accessories.
