Carhartt and Polkadots

Coat: Old Navy
Vest: Carhartt
Blouse: Thrifted
Jeans: Vicross
Shoes: Black Poppy

I think I'm a lot better about taking pictures in front of a tripod, I don't make the strange faces that I do when other people take them.  I can't get over the fact that the light at 6:30 is so much better than the lighting was at 3:30 less than a month ago.  And soon we'll have light all night long!

This vest is really a sleeveless shirt, but it's big for me and it makes an awesome vest and as an Alaskan, I'm require to have some Carhartt in my outfit!

It's kinda weird setting up your tripod and trying to take pictures while your neighbor sits on the door step and smokes, watching the whole time.  Slightly uncomfortable.


  1. Oooo I love the polka dots against the 'vest'. I hate it when other people are watching me while I get photos taken, it makes my smile go all wonky.

    1. I know! I can deal with people staring as they drive/walk by, but when when they just stand there and stare..... that's when I start feeling silly as I'm trying to work it!

  2. Love this outfit! The polka dots are SO cute, and I love the vest. That sounds awkward - I hate when neighbors watch outfit pics!

    The Other Side of Gray

  3. the last 2 sentences, hilarious. That would be so awkward!!! YOur pics turned out despite the staring neighbour :) Lovelovelove that polka dot t-shirt, it looks great paired with the coral.

  4. Love the colours going on here with your polka dot top. Cuffed jeans are the perfect touch.

  5. yeah, i think all my neighbors now know that i have a blog, but it's still slightly embarrassing! i love this outfit on you! the polka dots and cuffed pants work perfectly with those amazing boots!

  6. I really want to go to Alaska one day, it has been a dream of mine for a while now... Thank you so much for your sweet words, and I am loving your take on orange and polka dots! And what a pretty snow! It's nice to meet you, and I am following your blog so we can stay in touch :) hope you join my blog as well!
    Good luck!


  7. Love the layers on top and the polka-dot top is so cute! :) I HATE when people watch while I'm taking photos, that's the worst.

  8. That polka-dot blouse is adorable! I applaud anyone who does out door pictures. I take tripod photos in my house because there is no one there to judge me for taking 15 of the same outfit.

  9. I adore this polka-dot blouse <3 So pretty!


  10. haha..I never though carharts could be cute :)

  11. I love this outfit. So, so much. It's adorable. <3

    Man! I can't even imagine having light all night long! I want to visit Alaska some time to experience that - I think it'd be interesting... I love light. It makes photography soooo much easier!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I always like hearing feeback! (It really makes my day!)
