Walking In Sunshine!

My favorite tree/outdoor meditation spot


Those of you who live in Chicago know how rare sunny days are in Autumn/Winter, even more rare are mild weather days. It just so happens that for this "photo shoot" in the Sculpture Park, I got very lucky!

Many thanks to my BFF and the greatest love of my life (besides my children and Alexander Wang) for shooting these awesome photos. 

Now on to the OOTD...




This recycled blazer and scarf may look familiar because I love them and wore them together here, lol. 





Notice the mixed patterns and colors? Yeeeeah, I'm experimenting y'all, lol!


Scarf from F21


I love wrapping this scarf around my neck/shoulders. Look at my crooked smile, so endearing :-)


Gold earrings were a gift from my Grandmother.




Full length of the entire outfit.










From the back.



Me next to one of my fave sculptures in the entire park.




Another of my fave sculptures.

Sunnies from Target ($5)

 My skin was all kinds of yuck in these pictures. It's clearing up little by little though. I'll blog about my skin care regimen sometime in the near future.





Don't the booties look 3D, lol? Want a closer look?





You like? I've worn these once and I'm pretty sure I'll never wear them again. My feet are way to big and wide for these babies :-(


I'm creating a shop to sell some of the items I can't/don't wear or use. My Pink Clarisonic Classic will be another one of the items in the shop. I paid $195 for that brush and can't use it, my skin is just way too sensitive :-(







Blazerless and enjoying the weather and scenery.

Now let's look at the accessories...


Closer?








The Deets:


Leopard Satchel = Alloy.com

And that's that. What do you think of this outfit? I love what I did here as far as the mixing and matching goes, uber proud of my self :-D


Though I'm sure you've seen enough of my pictures, here are some bonus shots!





Don't they look all Secret Garden-ish, lol? My BFF did a totally FAWESOME job with the camera, I was honored and impressed. He made editing the pictures for this blog super hard (as evidenced by the amount of pictures in this blog, lol). In honor of him and his work, I'm posting his picture...


Well not him exactly, lol. Those are his custom Nikes that he designed and received shortly before the shoot. He's so in love with those shoes it's kind of ridiculous, lol. He even has his name on the back of them (you can just barely see it).


Okey dokey, that's enough. Do you like the outfit I put together? Dislike it? Let a sistah know!

I like it, the booties are very cute, I know they'd hurt my feet lol. I like the pop of color with the neutrals and the mixed patterns.

I love the outdoor shots. Those boots are cute and look good with the entire outfit.

@MsChicaMae: The booties are totally cute and just as painful. I think they're a half size smaller than the listed size (10) because I just can't wear them comfortably. Yes, don't you just love splashes of color? ;-)

@MV: Outdoor shots are my fave but I can't always find a photographer, lol. I wish I had a full time blogtographer (my own word, lol) to follow me around and snap photos of my outfits like some of the other bloggers. Again, I have a love/hate relationship with the booties. They're too tight on my size 10 feet :-( Perhaps they can find a new home with some other style hound...
