day fifteen: railroads & old buildings

For most of us University students, it's reading break right now. My fellow fashionista Meagan and I had this genius plan to spend one whole day sitting in our comfy clothes and doing homework. Strictly homework. Maybe with a little tea on the side, but that was that. So this is how it really went: Comfy clothes were replaced by stylish outfits fit for a photo shoot. We stared at our Macbooks, I sent a few emails that desperately needed to be sent, and then, "How about we go walk around Fort Langley instead? Maybe go to Wendel's for coffee?" Yep. This is how not to be a good student. But, the weather stayed rain-free and we caught the last bit of daylight. Is the background not incredibly pretty? I've done two photo shoots with Kelly Swanson Photography (here and here) in Fort Langley as well, and I'm still amazed at how adorable it is. Also as a side note - I finally wore my fur vest!

    this may sound weird and creepy...but a photoshoot shoot suggestion, i think you could totally pull of a 'pin-up' sort of style and theme....

  5. Your blog title is so apropos because you are the picture of elegance! You remind me of old Hollywood glamour! You've got gorgeous eyes! Exclamation points are pretty!!!
