Did you have a good weekend? I hope you all had a very nice weekend! Even though I was still recovering from being sick we had a great weekend.
I got this new dress from modcloth last week and I knew I wanted to wear it this weekend when we went out on Saturday night. Before it got dark though we thought it would be fun to go on a little adventure trying to find a good spot to take a picture. Now I wore the shoes in the picture when we went out, but for our hike I wore some boots and just carried along my shoes. We drove around till we saw this railroad track off in the distance. We parked on the side of the road and hiked over towards it. Now the temperature outside should have been our first indication that this whole thing was a terrible idea. It was freezing. Kev did not have boots on and was walking thru the snow with vans on. Not a good idea. Neither of us brought gloves. Not a good idea!
We got to the bridge and it was about 50 feet above a frozen river. We climbed up to it and started to walk across it. It was super scary because it was icy and the railroad ties were spread apart making big holes between each tie that your foot could def. fit thru if you tripped. Not a good idea! Kev was getting ready as I tried to switch from boots to my shoes on a railroad tie hoping not to lose my balance or lose my shoe down one of the wholes. Kev took my coat and we started shooting. IT WAS FREEZING! Why we decided to do this was beyond me. Kev lost feeling in his fingers fast, then almost lost his balance off the edge of the bridge as he bend down to take pictures. It was a disastrous combination of things. hahaha. When we were done we ran back to the car as fast as we could laughing at how stupid that was and thinking that these pictures better look awesome for what we just went thru.
Winter pictures are the worst. hehe
You can see how cold it is by the look on my face. My eyes are watering and my nose and cheeks are red. So funny!
Anyways, picture taking aside. I love this outfit. This is def. one of my new favorite dresses. I love the bright colors in it and the fun pattern. There are so many ways to style it because there are just so many colors to play off of. I went simple with some black tights and black cardigan, but added some fun with this vintage brooch I bought at a antique fund raiser at school. I think it looks like an exploding firework to me. It’s a strapless dress with a real slight sweetheart neckline. I know sometimes it can be nerve racking ordering something online but this dress fits me like a glove. Its the most perfect size. If you are thinking about ordering something from modcloth and have questions about sizes, I would be more than willing to share what sizes I usually wear and what sizes I have ordered from modcloth.
