Daily Threads: Cargo



dress: c/o karen kane, jacket: jcpenney, shoes: vera wang

Due to lack of scenery, I decided to sit down for some pictures. Turns out sitting down for outfit pictures is pretty awkward. If you don't believe me, take a closer look at my graceless right arm/hand.  And my smile, or what I like to call: me laughing at myself. Oh well. 

In other news, it's still feeling like the dead of summer around these parts of the US. I was sweating within the first couple of photos - yeah, gross. Hey, Alabama, get a grip on the changing seasons - let's at least have cooler mornings and nights. Please? At the end of September I'm heading up to the glorious mountain region of NC. Oh, I cannot wait! The mountains, cool air, and changing leaves are all I can think about.

I love how this vest and dress look together...the perfect contrast of styles!
Sitting poses are totally awkward to do, but often they turn out looking great!!

You'll hear this a dozen times, but I love the juxtaposition between the cargo vest and the gauzy, floral dress. I haven't figured out how to do that without looking like I got dressed in the dark, but you look fabulous!

I was shocked that it was in the mid 80s here, today. It was such a relief!!!

Loving how you added the cargo to such a sweet dress. It's beautiful!

This dress was made to be worn with this vest, such a gorgeous dress. Sitting down for pictures is awkward, you have to learn a whole new way to pose!

Standing, sitting...either way, you look gorgeous. I love your dress with the military-style vest. Also drooling over your shoes...perfect!

This dress is adorable, and it looks great with the vest! I'm convinced I need a vest like that for fall!

I recently started a style blog of my own. Please take a look! I could use the support :D

Well aren't we twins, I agree. I have been longing for the changing of the leaves. And as for awkward sitting pictures? Yeaaah, I feel ya. I love this outfit and the cinching of your white dress. So lovely.
