Rewind - Torrential Downpour

Another rewind, another summer memory. This was July, and I put this outfit together on a whim after taking myself out for "one small purchase". I picked up the floaty tunic in a baby pink, a color that I never wear (even though I love it, what gives?), and paired it with some simple black cigarette pants. I added the chandelier necklace as a detail to incorporate the clutch, which is gold clasped vintage faux snakeskin - that's a mouthful. I look pretty pissed in most of these photos, but I swear that it's just the curse of a downturned mouth. I was a-okay and learning what to do with my face in front of a camera. ....still learning - stay tuned. 

As I usually do, I popped behind the old decrepit building across the street from my house on this day, un-phased by the ominous clouds that were lurking in the sky just past. It wasn't two photos in that I was running for shelter, ending up tucked under a tiny awning for close to an hour. At first I stayed because I was fearful of getting my camera wet, but after some time, realized that there is absolutely no harm in being trapped in a field to watch a storm hit the river and smell the grass become rejuvenated. After awhile, I was able to snap some more, and with better lighting to boot!

I had a pretty standard week, and hope to have a pretty standard weekend. I have no plans whatsoever, besides working, and hope for a quiet moment with a cup of coffee and my mohair socks, at the very most. It's pretty nippy over here in Eastern Can., and we're due for yet another nor'easter that is set to pound us with some more snow. I can tell that the days are getting longer, though, and I really have to get back out and into the swing of things photo wise - I'm moving through my reservoir pretty quickly. Thank you again for reading, friends and followers. I guess I don't throw out my appreciation too often, but here it is in a great big MUAH of thanks. Take care.

I just love your clutch! I am so jealous of how you have NO SNOW! We are having our 3rd storm in the past 2 weeks and I am SO sick of it!! No way to take pictures :(

I think the girly colors make up for the mean face! Pretty.

Hehe, I like your angry expressions, they're extra chic :) And this color combo is so feminine and classic, I just love it. Glad to know I'm not the only one who waits out rainstorms for photos!!

Cute outfit indeed! I hear you on the pink- I don't wear a lot of it but it's such a lovely colour- you look adorable in this top! It's funny to think that my closet used to be full of pink- in fact during my first few years of undergrad, if I didn't wear pink people would be surprised! I'm also surprised that we have more snow than you guys! We are buried in it, so I've given up on outdoor photos for now! I'm jealous of the southern bloggers who get to bare skin outdoors this time of year!
