The Brooch Approach


Man, I kind of love today's batch of photos. Not because I think my outfit is "earth-shattering" or because my hair looks so extremely luxurious. They were just such fun photos to take. That, and my facial expression in most of them is "skeptical/concerned," basically what my face usually looks like. So, lots of pictures today. Also, I wore not one, but two brooches today. And one of them is so obnoxious and weighs about eighty pounds. Hence the post title. The other one my lovely friend Charlotte gave to me for my birthday. It reminds me of a cross section of a tiny tree.

Blouse: JCPenney, Jeans: Levi's, Cardigan: Zara, Shoes: Le Bunny Bleu (not that you can really see them well)











Until tomorrow,


  1. I actually looked at the first picture, thought "LOVE this outfit, her hair looks gorgeous" and THEN read what you thought about them. I love this outfit! It's so easy chic!

  2. My outfits are rarely earth shattering, but it's the creative process of taking photos, editing them and putting them together that's fun for me! :D But I really like this outfit. It's nice to see a range of outfits on a style blog!

  3. Haha, I really love this look. I have been wearing something similar lately, I should invest in broaches!

  4. Oh, the last photo is so cute!!! The outfit is pretty cute too.

  5. i think i always just call you cute. but you are. and i like this outfit. simple is my favorite.

  6. Well, your hair still rocks even though it no longer has the salon touch to it, first of all. Second, your photos crack me up. Isn't it a trip to see the faces you make over and over? I know it always amuses me.

  7. Haha, yeah, I'm trying to embrace my weird facial expressions and incorporate them into blog posts. Because hey, I'm not smiley all the time, and often I make silly faces like those above. Glad you found them amusing :)

  8. I love how happy you look in the last photo, friggin adorable!

  9. The landing photo is adorable :) I can tell you had fun taking these pics! And lovely outfit as well :)
