Jacket? G Star (bought on sale in Holland, available here) Dress? Consigned, no label Boots? Joe Fresh
Cuffs? Auction find

I've been staying in Utrecht, a beautiful city filled with cobblestone streets, canals and old historic buildings everywhere you look. Basically, the down town is one big outfit picture location..... filled with people. And if I could, it would be lovely to laugh at nothing, let the wind tousle my hair artfully and throw armfuls of beautiful tulips into the canal for the most perfect post ever. But I can't work up the courage and push down the embarrassment long enough to accomplish that, so I try to sneak off to quiet places to document my clothing and wistful side glances. Turns out my quiet little spray painted garage door nook was not so private at all... Someone walked up, pressed a button and a store-front was revealed as the garage door I was standing (posing, really...) in front of, rolled up...

You've clearly already laid the crazy gauntlet, I say just go for it.

Thats a gorgeous dress!

Gotta ask - are the Joe boots comfortable? They have a few styles on markdown right now and I'm hesitating pulling the trigger!

Jessica Gitler said...

Really like this jacket paired with that dress (and I totally just made a dress like that but with some lace appliqué)! Quite funny the garage was a store in hiding, but definitely a great back drop for your photos

Love the color tones you used for this outfit! Maroon and olive are stunning together :)

Haha that's fantastic. Isn't it weird - we'll post pictures of ourselves on here for the world to see. But when someone comes across us taking them in real life it's a deeply embarrassing ordeal!

Love the colour combos you've got going on here.

Hey There Carole! said...

I agree with Jessica, "You've clearly already laid the crazy gauntlet, I say just go for it."

By the time you go back they will have forgotten you and your craziness and remember you for your spectacular outfits.

Terri said...

Too funny...I probably would have acted as though I had a craving for the fries!

You and the garage doors look gorgeous.

lol...you always seem to have these moments during your photo shoots!

Love that bright pink lip!!

j.love said...

Hahaha! I completely 100% understand your pain. I literally just posted about trying to pose incognito in NYC (basically impossible). P.S. You have really nice legs (in a totally non-creepy way, of course) ;)

Christen said...

The pictures I took today and just posted were taken in a young woman's smoke break spot. When she walked outside and saw me, she was obviously perplexed and peeved. Can't say I blame her.

Also, I love those cuffs. Super stunning.

Meg said...

Totally loving this outfit.

Oh dear...that would probably be the #1 reason I take all my outfit photos in my kitchen. Only my cat is likely to be watching. And judging. Because she's a judge-y kind of cat.

I love your jacket, it looks so versatile!!

Can I come visit any of the places you've been?

Know anyone who needs to up their game with a new computer? We've been hit with some hard times in these parts and and selling our Macbook Air for a little help. Price is negotiable. Please spread the word if you feel so inclined! Thanks.

Popping over from Greetings from TX and happy to be your newest follower. Thrifting is in my soul, so I'll be back to play again soon.

Happy seeing beautiful!

I like that you made the dress edgier by added the coat and booties.
