Day 4. Comfort


Cardigan: Gap (last year)
Ruffle tissue tank: J.Crew (last year)
Earrings: petal and pink
Sunnies: Michael Kors

I realized today that I was in charge of my own destiny...er...photos. Husband was out after work, and I went to the gym. So what's a girl to do? Set the camera on the bookcase, do the timer and try to get some outfit shots. All of this was happening when I was supposed to be heading out the door. Talk about a lack of planning.

I will say that I like morning light much better in my pictures, and it's more agreeable for me when it comes to fiddling with my camera settings. I'll probably do this more often.

Comfort was key in today's outfit, and this cardigan is so cozy. I just wrap myself up in it and it is like a blanket around me. These boots I got for a steal. Between my $10 reward, $5 birthday coupon, a sale ($50 off $150 purchases) and a gift card, I only paid $30 for these, and I live in them. I was concerned originally about the contrast zipper when I saw them online, but I figured I could grab a fabric marker and make it black if it bugged me. But it turns out, I don't even care. I actually kind of like it!
