Ginger Cats

Pinup Girl Clothing Jenny skirt in Mary Blair Cats print

It's only been a few days but it feels like I haven't taken outfit photos in forever!  I'm really good with scheduling posts (I've actually booked the next couple months) but I struggle getting out there to photograph them.  It might just be a phase but I'll drag my feet until the day before a scheduled post.  Of course, then comes the anxiety of having such little time and the worry that I won't get the shots I need.  I really don't know why I torture myself in this way, but I think the best way to put it is that I do really well under pressure.  At least that's what I tell myself!

Hula Honey

Ella Top in Hula Honey Pinup Girl Clothing Jenny skirt in Black Sharkskin Taffeta

I haven't been to Hawaii since 2012 and I think about going back at least every couple of days.  Since it doesn't seem very realistic at the moment, I'm more than happy to reminisce with this hula girl top.  Heart of Haute is pretty much known for their fantastic Ella tops and I've been dying to add one to my closet.  It's pretty much everything I wished for and then some!  It's perfect with a cute pair of capris but I dressed it up for date night with this sharkskin taffeta skirt.

Come Fly With Me

Pinup Girl Clothing Heidi dress in Mary Blair Planes print

The things I will do for some pretty pictures... Bianca and I went to our favorite nature preserve yesterday for a nice walk and an opportunity to take some outfit photos.  There's a gorgeous secluded area off a hiking trail that I was walking towards until I discovered something frightening: a snake!  I nearly ran it over with my heavy duty hiking stroller because it was slithering across the path.  Thankfully, we locked eyes (I'm not even joking) before the potential snake attack and I quickly turned around and ran.  I guess it was his way of telling me I couldn't use his home as a photo location.  Maybe next time!

Once Upon A Dream

Pinup Girl Clothing Jenny skirt in Mary Blair Commuters Print

You have been warned: There will be lots of Mary Blair "spam" in the next couple of weeks.  I've treated myself to a bunch of the Pinup Girl Clothing Mary Blair prints and I couldn't be happier.  This commuter print is a fan favorite and I can certainly see why.  I love the illustrations on this skirt and the color is surprisingly a new favorite.  I've worn it a few times already and it seems like the piece that gets the most compliments so far!
