all photos by Caitlin Natusch Photography
For my next outfit/set of photos with my friend Caitlin [first set / second set], I wanted to go absolutely classic. The first things that came to mind? A retro silhouette, red lip, and a splash of leopard print. Though the more I look at these photos, and even as I was putting it all on to take them...I can't help thinking it looks SO New Jersey housewife in 1985- RIGHT?! I can already hear my sisters giving me a hard time.
Not that I have anything against New Jersey (I have always dreamed of visiting Atlantic City- don't ask me why!) or the 80's. In FACT- I am certifiably obsessed with the 80's. About once a week you'll hear me say that my biggest regret is not being born in the 80's (like it was something I had control over...hee-hee.) I'm convinced I would have absolutely thrived in the decade known for big hair and terrible pop music. These are my THINGS, you guys!
So, I pacify this loss by rocking out to my 80's playlist on the reg, maintaining that my band name (everyone needs one on stand-by!) is Alive in the 80's, and, you know, wearing outfits like this. This honestly looks like a costume to me. And I love costumes, it's all good. Oh, and if anyone cares, I'm actually wearing this outfit, to work, today.
It's hard to compliment a photographer without sounding like "look how cute I am!" but Caitlin really killed it with this set- the backdrop, framing, colors; I really dig it.
I'm always working on the best ways to make my blog searchable, shareable, and helpful; in the outfit details above, I've linked other ways each piece has been worn on perfectlyP- check it out! (Also if you have any helpful tips about labeling/archiving, I would love to hear them.)
I hope your week is off to a GRAND start! I had a weekend where I made a list (not unusual) and got to check nearly everything off, and you KNOW how that gets me. I also have a blog collab in the works which is pretty exciting! Stay tuned!
