One of the things I've gotten into the habit of doing, is noticing places that would be good backdrops for photoshoots when I'm exploring the city. I first discovered this gorgeous mural about a year ago, and have been wanting to shoot in front of it ever since. Unfortunately it's a temporary installment while the city builds a new lightrail station, so when I found this turtleneck that matched the wall perfectly I knew it was finally time.
Every year the week after Christmas, I like to scour the sales at my favorite stores to try to find the things that weren't checked off my list. This turtleneck wasn't originally something I was looking for, but I immediately fell in love with the purple and pink knit. It was really unlike anything else I had (which is saying something considering just how many sweaters I happen to own). It's also super comfortable and warm - a huge plus since my desk at work is right beneath the AC.
To the office I pair this chunky knit with a pair of dark wash jeans and my pink vans, but I also love styling it for a night out. This dark blue corduroy skirt went so well, and was still laid back enough to wear to our favorite Chinese restaurant.
As for my shoes, I had been looking for the right pair of neutral over the knee boots for quite some time when I found this pair on sale from the GAP. Like the sweater, they also look great with a comfy pair of dark wash jeans and match almost everything in my closet. You'll be seeing more of them for sure!
