Gray & White

Last week I ventured into the world of taking photos out in the street by myself with a tripod.  And let me tell you, it was super embarrassing.  Not only because I managed to set off my own car's alarm.  Or because I happened to run into my boyfriend's dad mid-shoot.  I tried to explain to him what I was doing, but I think that just confused him more.


Tee - Target / Jeans - Old Navy / Bag - Target (similar here) / Sandals - Payless (old, similar here) / Necklace - Sira & Mara / Bracelet - Baublebar (similar here)


This look was inspired by Jill of Good Life for Less.  I normally would think gray and white were a little too boring to go together, but her styleboard changed my mind.  Of course, I had to throw in a little color too.  That's just how I do ;)

  3. I love gray and white and the yellow is PERFECT with it! Yes, street photo shoots are embarrassing. I know my neighbors think I'm crazy or narcissistic.

  7. I'm all for grey and white in the spring and summer! They're both very crisp and great for this time of year. I totally give you credit for taking these shots with your tripod - I would be way to self conscious!

  9. So I think we are outfit soulmates: I wore the same color combo last Friday. Grey top, white jeans, and turquoise flat sandals. All I need is a yellow bag and we would have been twins!

  18. Yeah I've been trying to change up locations so the neighbors don't think I'm super crazy. You know, just a little crazy ;)

  22. I give you props for venturing out! I still take my pics against a white wall with a remote. I'm way to chicken to take it outside! I love this outfit too. The turquoise really pops with the white.
