Visions of sugar plums danced in her head...






As newbies to the Atlanta area, my hubby Bill and I are usually out on the weekends discovering new places, new roads, new everything and it's been a fun way to get acclimated in our new city.  As a blogger and amateur photographer, my mind is always in search of the perfect backdrop for my photos.  I usually take my own photos for my blog with the help of a tripod and a camera remote, so anytime I can get Bill to snap photos of me while we are out, I get super excited!

When we drove past this long stretch of landscape and curvy sidewalk, I had visions of beautiful photos with gorgeous outfits strutting down the the streets of Atlanta…I was dressed for the mall, not glamorous at all, but I asked Bill to pull over and take photos of my plum vintage swing coat (looks more wine in these pics). Really? Here? Why? he asked. It was cold and windy and we were hungry, but being the sweet man that he is, he went along with it.  As you can see, he cracks me up,  but we managed to get some "not so serious" pics of my vintage coat and a peek-a-boo of my new scarf I picked up at the mall.  I think Bill did a pretty good job under these conditions, what do you think? 

What I'm wearing: Coat: Vintage // Beanie: Urban Outfitters // Sweater: Nordstrom Rack // Jeans: Loft // Booties: Lucky, TJ Maxx but similar ones here  // Bag: LV // Scarf: Zara

    These look great! You sound like my husband and I, I like to garb "photographable moments" while I can and avoid my tripod and brick walls:) Loving this whole look, it looks cozy and cute, yet pulled together and sassy. Love!
