30for30: Twenty-six

 I'm ready for these windy days to be over. I wanted to get out an take my pictures today and with every gust of wind I had a mild heart attack. I could just see my tripod and camera tipping over to my lens's second third death. But I got out there, snapped the pictures, and we were back in my car, safe from the wind in no time!

This dress I am wearing... it's item number 30. Somehow I had forgotten all about it and it's making its debut on outfit number 26 (wow, 26! Almost there!). I knew that today I kind of wanted to go for the "dress as a skirt" look - and I kind of did. So I grabbed this dress and did what I could. I've been wanting to wear these yellow tights since the beginning of the challenge and they finally made their appearance as well. It all ended up very layer-ish, and I love that! I love the purple and gold combo too - these are the colors of my alma mate where I received my master's degree, so always love a purple and gold combo!

Dress: Target
Cardigan: Target
Scarf: Market in Charleston, SC

Adorably stylish - just lovely. I love all the layering, the belting of the scarf, the pop of color with the yellow tights - all of it, I just love!

I also applaud you for getting some pictures in the wind. I tried to go out and get some during my lunch break today, but stopped to get some gas first. The wind was so horrible, I gave up. Bad indoor pics it will be.
