My daughter was visiting for a few days for Mother's Day, so of course we had to play 'dress up' again. I pulled out all my new spring items that I haven't featured on my blog yet, and had her put together outfits. I love to see what someone else does with my own clothes. I was pleasantly surprised with what Ashley came up with, for I never would have thought of this combination:spring graphic tee from J.C. Penney and mint skinny jeans (old, Kohls), and paired them with a black blazer (old, Express). I would never have considered putting bright spring colors with a dark, fall blazer, but Ashley said she did it because "Black is in the shirt". She then accessorized with my new yellow purse that she gave me for Mother's Day and a mint, long necklace. I added the black shoes to carry the color downwards and complete the outfit.
I have to interrupt my fashion details, and tell you a little story about the photo below. In blog land, one tends to notice that certain blogger's have specific stances or poses they use quite frequently. One can hardly blame them, because really, how many different ways are there to pose? My personal favorites that I frequently use are either to put my hands in my pockets, or stand with one leg crossed in front of the other. However, I also have poses I really don't like. My top two that I dislike the most are what I call the 'scratch behind my head and look down pose' (really, is your head that itchy?) and 'look up at the sky and smile like your seeing an angel pose' (how often in real life you do see people smiling and looking up at the sky?). Both of those poses drive me crazy when I see bloggers do them over and over again. So I laughed when I saw these pictures, because there I am, looking up at that sky and smiling like I'm seeing an angel! Well the truth is, I had no idea Ashley was even taking my picture here. I just happened to see a beautiful oriole fly and land in the tree above me, and I looked up…and snap, the picture was taken. It actually turned out to be quite a nice photo. :)
