Black, white and purple

I took these pictures after work last week, before daylight savings. The light was low and they didn't turn out very well. I'm really looking forward to taking photos after work in the coming weeks and months. The days are only going to get longer from here and I couldn't be more thrilled!

My blog related goal for this spring and summer is to get more comfortable taking photos on my own in public. There are some beautiful parks and spots near my apartment that I hope to take advantage of, especially when the spring flowers start coming in.

Because otherwise, you're just going to get more sketchy looking photos from the alley behind my apartment building. And nobody wants that!

I've been wearing flats a lot lately. Having a two block commute I feel like it's easier to get away with footwear that is impractical for the weather. Regardless I can't wait to pack away my boots and enter flats/ sandals season!

What are you looking forward to wearing this spring?


  1. I can't wait to wear sandals again! I've been taking all my photos by my apartment too but that's mostly because I don't want to be out in the cold any longer than I have to. :)

  2. You look so pretty in purple. Love those striped flats! I am looking forward to longer days, sandals, tshirts, dresses/skirts without tights, and no jackets! :)

  6. The purple shirt and striped flats are so cute! Im so jealous you have a 2 block commute to work! I wish I did!

  7. I'm looking forward to all of my skirts and dresses! I've been hiding them this winter. :) I love that purple blouse and the striped flats are so cute! Good luck on your goal! I know I still get nervous in front of people, but I'm starting to care less and less. :) <3


  8. It does feel really awkward taking pictures in public but eventually you get use to it. (The worst part is when they just stand and stare but aside from that, its not bad! I remember seeing some of your pictures from the park around your apartment back in the fall and it's a beautiful place.)
    The bright purple with the black trim has such a bold graphic look, it's really pretty and looks dressy with the black jeans. I know, I can't wait until spring to start wearing sandals as well!

  9. love this purple top and also your blog! It's so nice!!! I follow you!
    Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D

  10. It's hard to feel comfortable taking photos in public alone. I mean, I've been doing it for years now and there are still those awkward moments. I do love DST though - so nice to come home from work with the sun still out!

  11. I hate taking pictures in public, but I just tell myself I probably won't see these people again. I love your purple top on you!


  12. That is such a pretty, vibrant shade of purple! Love that you're venturing out to take photos - can't wait to see what other spots are around you :)

  13. That purple blouce is very nice. Have a great monday.


Thanks for reading. I would love to hear your thoughts!
