In a cinch.







Today was a very warm day (80 degrees! In December!) in Sunny California. I am once again battling some kind of respiratory illness. A respiratory therapist with breathing issues. Go figure. Hmmpfh. But even with a stuffy head, coughing fits and phlegm, there was NO way I was gonna let this beautiful sunny weather pass me by. So, after church and a nice brunch with some friends (eggs florentine benedict and red potatoes for my tummy), the Hubbs and I decided to shoot these pics.
Just like socks, I have a thing for belts. I have all sorts of colors and sizes. At the moment, my wide belts are beating my skinny belts 3:1. And I now have to try and even out the belt population in my closet before the wide ones eat the skinnies. I decided to wear this corset type belt with my jumper. I've worn it before for a costume party and decided today it should see the light once more. I knew it would "enhance" my figure and at times I felt a little too "hippy" but I rocked it anyway because when it came down to it, I liked it. And that's all that really matters. ;) 

Jumper: F21, Belt: small local shop, Bicycle necklace and bracelets: F21, Watch: Target (it's my everyday mens faux croc. love it.), Velvet mary-jane platforms: same small local shop, Clutch: it was my mama's.

  2. Thanks for the comment! Hahaha. I am no model by any means! I've never done any modeling nor did I ever want to be one. I don't think I'm cut out for that sort of thing! I just want to share what excites me. :) My hubby takes my photos. He makes me do poses. If it were up to me, I'd just stand there!

    If we ever make it out to Denver, he can do some pics for you! :)

    Thanks for the love!

  8. The jumpsuit looks great with the corset belt. I think men's watches on women look fabulous.
    Your hubby is a very talented photographer and I agree with Summer, you DO look like a model.
