OOTD // Meet Me At the Railroad Tracks


Kirsten and I had another photo shoot earlier last week!
I've been saving these photos for today's post, and I think they turned out really well too.
So brace yourselves for a photo barrage!


Necklace: Icing

Outfit Details:   Dress (worn as shirt): Route 66   Skirt: thrifted + DIY   Jacket: Debs   Belt: Philippines   Hat: JcPenney   Tights: Target   Wedges: (gift) Payless  

This outfit features my new favorite skirt. I thrifted it for $2 and then whipped out the scissors and made it into a uniquely cut skirt! Okay, and I'll admit, I actually messed up. Haha, it was supposed to be a high-low hem, but then I cut out the back too on accident! However, I tried it on and ended up liking it anyway. I'm not sure what kind of cut you'd call this...does anyone know?

Purse: thrifted



So Kirsten and I hung out for the day and she told me about this cool, abandoned warehouse area that had railroad tracks nearby and I told her "Well let's go then!"
I've always wanted to take pictures on a railroad track. To me, they symbolize a traveler's dreams and hopes of exploring the world they live in. And if you know me, you know my dream is to travel the world one day.


So I'd cut my old teal maxi skirt into a high-low hem too (this time, doing it right!) and brought it over so Kirsten could model it. Added on my gold headband to her, and she looked like a visiting fairy princess!

Outfit Details:   Top: thrifted   Skirt: thrifted + DIY   Belt: thrifted   Shoes: Fred Meyer   Necklace: Icing   Headband: Philippines




She can pull off bohemian really well, huh?
Haha, I think I may have just influenced her style. She's usually a jeans and tee kind of girl, but after pushing her to wear my skirt, she kept saying "Wow, I feel really good in this."

There's a hippie in all of us, I'm sure. :)

Happy Thursday everyone!
Its almost Friday!

Great outfit! The skirt really makes the outfit pop! And awesome job on cutting the skirt into a high-low hem skirt! It looks fantastic! I was thinking about going thrifting and find some maxis to do the same! Great minds think alike!

This is quite possibly my favourite of all your outfit posts thus far!! The two DIY skirts are amazing - I think you did a fabulous job! Definitely a DIY project I should try sometime soon; as I love asymmetrical skirts & dresses, but haven't found the perfect one yet. You are Kirsten both look gorgeous - lovely Spring-y photos dear :)
