The Backyard {WIWW}

It's time for an outfit post y'all. Since I've entered into true blogger-dom with headbands and a DSLR camera, I have also acquired something else that helps me out as a blogger quite a bit. What is that you ask?

A big beautiful backyard where I can take pictures in natural lighting. So no more of this...

Pictures in our apartment parking lot with random cars in the background // pictures inside our crowded apartment // pictures at Discount Tire while waiting to get air in my tires...

I love taking pictures in our backyard. The lighting is perfect and there are trees instead of ugly automobiles in the background.

So now I give you my favorite outfit posts since moving into our new casa with its heavenly yard...

Shirt :: Elle for Kohl's // Sweater :: TJ Maxx // Cords :: Lauren Conrad for Kohl's // Boots :: Steve Madden // Belt :: BP @ Nordstrom

Shirt :: Banana // Skirt :: J.Crew // Boots :: Aldo // Belt :: UO // Necklace :: 21

Shirt :: Francesca's // Leggings :: Banana // Headband :: F21

Shirt :: Banana // Sweater :: TJ Maxx // Leggings :: Banana // Boots :: Aldo // Belt :: TJ Maxx // 
Headband :: Whippy Cake

 And since a number of people complimented me on this one{thank you} and asked me about my sweater {Micah's cousin bought this same sweater over Thanksgiving and I totally copied her! Thanks, Gracia!}...

Shirt :: Banana // Sweater :: Kohl's // Jeans :: Banana // Shoes :: Jessica Simpson @ Norstrom // 
Necklace :: Kiki's Über Chic Boutique :)

But now we've had two straight days of rain, which is VERY strange for these parts, and I am living in my sweats! Really, sweats are my favorite outfit.

    CUTE outfits! I LOVE that last sweater, and you wear belts very well. I have them, put them on, and usually take them off. I really like that first set with the red belt and blue skirt and plaid shirt.

    OK. Love the cords from Kohls.

    And love the fact that you consider yourself a true blogger b/c you have a DSLR & headband.

    also, last photo-- did you two plan to match on purpose? so cute!

    It's raining like crazy here in MN today, which is totally bizarro. No snow is left, and it feels like spring!

    So great that you finally got the backyard you wanted. Love your outfits. Don't you just love lauren conrads stuff at Kohls. I may or may not have an unhealthy addiction to it ha.
