Number 1




Shirt- Loft, Cardigan- Target, Skirt- Victoria's Secret, Boots- Target.

I'm really excited about these pictures that my best friend Heather took. Aren't they awesome? We both love this over-grown hill that sits by the Belt Line and stumbled upon this rope swing up there today. Though I kind of feel like it's a death trap the way it sits right by a huge drop-off, that didn't stop us from testing it out.

So, I should point out that this skirt had a previous life as a shirt. I found it at Goodwill, hanging out with the other skirts, but on further inspection realized it had a bra-liner and two little loops on either side for a little shirt belt thing (where- if it were a strapless shirt- it would hit my ribs). I decided to help it fulfill it's wish for a new identity- took it home, cut out the bra and am wearing it now as a skirt. We're both pretty happy.

I've already picked out my outfits for the next three days and am looking forward to the extra sleep this will bring me. How's everyone else doing?

  1. Love the pictures. Love the outfit. And love, love, love the fact that you reinvented that shirt into a skirt!

    Green with envy (in a good way ... I look good in green).

  9. They were taken on the beltline. Right across from the barking hound there is a big cliff and this was on top of it.

    Thanks for all the great comments everyone!
