Style File 09.27.11


When Rowan and I went out to take these photos, I realized I forgot the attachment for the camera to hook into the tripod. DOH! I always forget something. I debated walking all the way back, but my “happy time” with her sitting in the stroller is limited, so we improvised. We used the stroller as the tripod, and I have to say, they came out pretty good. Go Us!


I got this blouse in the mail yesterday from Mandi of Here’s Looking at Me, Kid. I am so excited to have her as part of the Delightful Dozen. I just love her! This blouse was calling my name, so I had to wear it today. I went for a monochromatic color scheme. I really liked the mustard with the pale yellow polka dots. To spike the interest of the outfit, I added my new favorite shoes. They are the most amazing shoes I own. Loafers.Studs.Leopard. They can do no wrong. Yep, I love this outfit!
