My nemesis




Sunnies: Vince Camuto (similar) | Scarf: Express | Bag: Foley + Corinna (other colors on sale for half off here) | Top: Express (optionsavesplurge)  | Bottoms: Express (option) | Shoes: Ugg (limited sizes here and here) (other good option here)

Burgundy + stripes + leopard/cognac is one of my all time favorite combos. I say that a lot about many combos, I know, but this time I have proof. I wore the base of this outfit a few months ago - in San Francisco here, as a matter of fact. The leopard scarf really just finishes this outfit off nicely. I wasn't sure how I would feel about stripes on bottom *and* on top, but I like it!

OK, so can I just be real with you guys for a second? Every weekend I do the outfit planning for the following week, including photographing all the outfits at once. It's been a good routine so far - it takes a little bit of strategy not only planning the outfits themselves, but also deciding what order to take the photos depending on how I want my hair styled for each outfit. Normally I check the weather for the weekend and pick the day with best weather to take pics. I had heard that it was supposed to be nice ALL weekend, so I didn't bother confirming this with the weather channel. Saturday was spent working on stuff for my sister's upcoming baby shower, and I planned to do blog stuff Sunday.

Saturday was absolutely gorgeous! Sunday I woke up to hail and wind. Ugggghhh. Wind is a blogger's nemesis I tell ya! So while I was able to snag a few acceptable photographs of this outfit, this is what the other 99% of the photos looked like.

  2. LOL!! I was wondering what (or who? hee hee) this post was going to be about because I couldn't see anything in your outfit that said "nemesis" to me. Like you said, it was more like "favorites." I love that you included your wind-blown pic. And then it's funny that they use a fan with models a lot of times to create a wind blown look? Well, you nailed it in the last pic. :
