Something Old, Something New

Seasonal Layering

Do you guys remember that one warm day we had a few weeks ago - well that was this particular day.  The weather was nice and divine, the trees were blooming and everything just seemed right in the world.  Since then Spring has gone on what seems like permanent Spring Break, but let's not dwell on that fact.  For now, we can either reminiscence on warmer days, or pray for more to come.

One of our photographers wanted to go shoot in a nearby park, and I was happy to oblige.  He's a fantastic photographer that shoots with a Canon (my preferred camera brand).  Canons agree with my melanin, so I knew that despite the bright sunlight and the random, deserted backdrop these pictures would be bomb.

My outfit is pretty relaxed.  I'm wearing some old black silk BCBG joggers, and a thrifted striped silk blouse layered over another striped shirt.  I figured I would flex my styling muscles a bit.  Spring is my favorite transitional season because it's perfect for layering.
