Day 16: The Wind in My Sails

Ugh.  Today was an okay picture day.  It's ridiculously warm in Chicago (for Feb winters, anyway) and the snow from the past few weeks has been melting like crazy!  I thought today would be a good day to go to the park from my childhood and snap a few, but I was rewarded with wet shoes, a windy day AND I forgot the piece for my tripod that holds my camera in place.  I had to precariously balance the camera on top of the tripod and didn't have any range of motion, which resulted in fabulous photos, natch (btw, I'm being sarcastic).

But, I suffered through and some of them turned out alright.

Outfit Details
Blazer: Uniqlo
Shirt: J Crew Buffalo Check Boy Shirt
Pants: Gap 1969 Always Skinny Jeans
Belt: J Crew Factory Skinny Leather Belt
Shoes: Anthropologie Brimming Button Heels
Bag: Hobo International Touch Base
Earrings: Gift from Mom from the Philippines (woot!)

Aaaand, a ridiculous one for the road. 

Sorry for the poorer quality photos this time around, point and shoots make it more difficult to have high quality pictures.  But the show must go on, right?  Also -- my poor shoes suffered for this shoot!  Check out the water stainage -- they should be fine once they dry out though.  

I had some cool ideas for slides and swings and rocking horses, but those didn't come out the way I hoped, so maybe next time.  

Thanks for stopping by, see ya tomorrow!


  1. The playground is one of my favorite places to take pictures -- though it can be difficult to find a time when there are no kiddies running around. I'd hate for people to be creeped out by me!

  2. @Katie - Thanks!

    @Jamie - I know, I was worried about that too! Thankfully it was cold and wet and before grade school let out. Though there were high school kids walking home from school...

  3. Super-cute pics! Those shoes are great...hope they dried out alright.

  4. Thanks JG! They did dry out alright,thankfully. I wore them yesterday without any problems ;).
