Props

Vest? Suzuya, thrifted Pants? Seven for all Mankind, thrifted and hemmed Shirt? Calvin Klein, Winners Shoes? Kate Spade, thrifted Purse? Roots

It can be a little difficult to look half natural in outfit pictures while incorporating some variety in the poses. I am a big fan of using whatever props are in the area. Sometimes things get awkward and I end up looking like Tom Cruise couch jumping or like dinosaur poo. This time I used the grocery cart left at the side of the variety store to keep it interesting. The pictures with the grocery cart made me think I should be yelling at my kids (they would be off camera, I'm a fashion blogger, not a mommy blogger... I hate sharing the spotlight) to keep their sticky chocolate pudding fingers away from my white pants. Maybe props are not my strongest suit...

In more slightly awkward news... I asked someone at work to email me some pictures for a landscape design and I told him my email address was sexylandscapelover at gmail dot com. He thought I was serious for a bit there. I find this concerning. I obviously need to work on being more humble and less sarcastic. And I would work on it but I am just too busy yelling at my imaginary kids to stay away from my white pants.

I love your posts. And I love your cropped little trench vest.

Nadine said...

Love it! Especially the bracelets (and the imaginary kids).

Lovers, Saints & Sailors said...

Ha! Yeah.

Also - that's probably the best green I've seen in a long time.

You made me laugh...and feel better than I am not the only one with imaginary kids who never do what I say :-)...Love the outfit

The key, my friend, is to only give your children clear and white foods when you are wearing said white pants - and make sure they are washable white pants! :)
I am dying over the green wall. I mean your outfit is awesome, obviously, but I want a green wall - it is too cool for words.

I don't even need kids to cover my white pants full of chocolate pudding-ness, I do a mighty fine job of it on my own! :-s

Love the B&W outfit with the green background!

Your getups are always so original but usually with just normal pieces! You pair things that I own something similar to with something else I could theoretically own in a way I would've NEVER thought to! I love it.

Frannie Pantz said...

You are hilarious. Disclosure: when you have real kids, you will still yell at their chocolate pudding fingers. I love the casual look today!

OMG...that is the same green that I painted my bathroom when I was a very young bride...19 years old.....and my new bathroom is still green but much more conservative! (now I am 56!)

You are adorable!

Your bag is gorgeous! And if your co-worker can't understand the language of sarcasm... something must be seriously wrong with him.

Danielle said...

Thank you for sharing this great classic with a twist outfit. It's kinda funny because I recently published a post called "Flogging:you can't beat it" where I talk about yelling at kids across parking lot. Not as freaky as it sounds. I understand you have a background in clothing design. I hope you'll visit my blog and be scathingly brutally honest.

Black and white with a pop of taupe/tan. Good look! And props always hep to break the monotony of posts.

Lisa - Archives Vintage said...

thank you for giving me another item to add to my long "reasons not to have kids" list. cant have those little ones ruining my white pants!!!

Sam said...

I love those pants. They look so good on you. I'm afraid to have white pants cause I know they'll get stained. My food tends to fall on me when I eat, I avoid white shirts for the same reason.

I feel like prolly you already know that I laughed a really good laugh out loud as soon as the oh-so-casually sexy shopping cart pic popped up, and that the same thing happened when I read about the coworker just going with the sexylandscapelover email, but just in case for some reason you didn't, there you go.

Emily said...

I'm a BIG fan of the "shop cart" dance. It always wins the crowd over. I mean...not the fellas but you've already got one of those.

Cubicle Chic said...

White pants... you are so brave! I'm sure I would sit on a ketchup packet on the first wear. I'm impressed!

Silver Daisy Designs said...

I love the white pants and the striped top combo! xo

andrea k (blonde bedhead) said...

Hahahhah you crack me up. I'm glad you're resourceful and use whatever props may be near you like an abandoned shopping cart. You look so fiiierce and seeing you in white pants make me want to buy a pair as well. Thanks for the inspiration and the continuous dose of laughter I get from reading your posts :)

Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...
