I really love scouting out good locations and taking pictures outside... but sometimes that can't happen. I'm surprised I actually have a decent picture location in my house because slanted ceilings and tons of stuff everywhere make it hard to pose. it. out.
I know this sentiment has been echoed by many bloggers but it's officially freaking cold. No longer is it 'a bit chilly, I think I'll wrap this chic little scarf around my neck', it's almost 'I'll cut a hole in a sleeping bag for my head and wear that' kind of cold. Besides, my photographer spent the evening drinking beer and putting in a new bathroom floor (which looks great!), so I thought I would go easy on him.
I like this look. It's all layered and warm (I wore tights under my pants too) but still chic. Honestly, it was far below the freezing point and so windy that it even knocked out power for a bit, so I could have easily busted out one of my true winter jackets. But I know it will get even colder and I feel like I have to acclimatize myself. If I bust out the big guns now, what will I wear when it gets even colder? I really don't know if my reasoning makes any sense or not but I'm sticking with it.
And how funny is this picture? Matt caught me dusting the shelves before he took outfit pictures. That's my scandalous secret... I have a dusty house.
