30for30: Ah, to be 13.

 

{ignore all squinty-eyed photos, thanks}

I'm so happy to see the weekend for many reasons. One of those reasons being my man can take my pictures. Do you know how much easier and quicker picture taking is when you don't have to run back and forth for the self-timer? 

I love this time of the day. When the sun is almost completely down and the earth is orange. None of these pictures were re-touched or with any type of filter, only cropped. I love it. I also love when my Wolfpack wins, especially against the Tarheels (I'll refrain from calling them the Tarholes since a great friend of mine reads this blog and went to that school....), and that's exactly what happened today! Go Pack!

I was nervous putting this outfit together today. I knew I wanted (and needed) to wear this dress - or any dress that has yet to be worn from my 30. I put it on and sifted through all the different accessories I had - socks, tights, scarfs... and this is what walked out of the closet. And I like it. I would have liked it a lot more if it were actually cool here. It's not cool at all - definitely not jacked or scarf worthy weather, but since I'm 13 deep into this 30 for 30, I just ignore the weather and wear what I want. 

Dress: Target
Tights: Betsey Johnson
Scarf: TJ Maxx
Socks: NY&Co.
Boots: Steve Madden
Jacket: Expess







I love this grey leather jacket. I searched the shopping world all over for a leather jacket last year. I had my heart set on a cognac one similar to this, but it never worked out. I will go back on the hunt for that jacket when 30 for 30 is no more.

Yes I know exactly how much of a pain self timer mode is :)

I have a friend who went to UNC for grad school, but since you're not a Duke fan, we're still good :) AND if we wanna talk about a real football game, my W&M Tribe beat the Richmond Spiders. Loveeee ittttt.

Enjoy your Saturday night dear!

Cute! I love that jacket. It's only cool enough for tights & boots in the evenings here... hoping that'll change soon, though.

Linley--great looking outfit. I've been window shopping a very simple leather jacket too. good luck on that search, when the time comes.

Oh I love that beautiful sunset light! These pics are great...good job Hubby! That scarf & jacket are perfect touches for this perfect outfit. I love the ruffledy-ness of the scarf!! (i think I just made up a word.)

These photos are gorgeous! Congrats on the win. Virginia Tech beat Miami today, too, so if everything goes according to plan, our alma maters should be battling each other in the ACC championship game, huh? =)

Love that leather jacket!

Virginie said...

Hou Linley, these pics are dreamy! The light, the yellow wall, the happiness that shines through...

I hope you have an awesome week-end!

I love this. that scarf and jacket are so wonderful. It's not cool here either. I definitely wore short sleeves to day and was completely comfortable. Weird southern weather.
