Riding Boots for the Day

Sweater: thrifted   Coated Jeans: American Eagle   Boots: c/o My Hot Shoes   Beanie: (gift) Kmart   Bag: Rue 21   Necklace: c/o Estarer


This is probably one of my favorite casual outfits to date. Some riding boots, a beanie, and an oversized sweater, and I'm good for the day. Plus, a mix of tribal print and some burgundy never hurt anything.
Oh, and just so I can brag on him, my dad took all these photos. He used to have a fancy camera back in the day, so he understood terms like aperture and ISO. Didn't they turn out fantastic? I saw the fog rolling in outside and immediately grabbed whoever was handiest. Haha, he had a few questions on how the camera operated, but after some helpful hints, he caught on quickly.

You know, it probably says something about the place you work if you get a hug from one of the customer's for coming back. It was a sweet old man that I had gotten to know from his regular visits. That's something about the regulars at our restaurant - you get to know them on a personal level. It made my day to know I was that appreciated. Nothing like getting hugs from someone to brighten your day.

Oh, and speaking of brightening days...there's nothing like catching someone give you a lopsided grin. Just saying. Hugs and smiles, girls - that's what makes the world a better place! :)

And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

AH linda your pictures are so pretty! You look like a cute little farmgirl. This would be a perfect tooth fairy sidekick outfit (oh you bet I'm still thinking about becoming the tooth fairy). The color of your sweater is so cute, and it looks so waaaarm. Yay for your dad taking awesome pictures!

That's really cute about the old man, oh goodness! I go to a deli every Sunday night and the workers there all know me pretty well and talk to me (I always order the same thing...) and it's just so nice that people take time to talk to you. :) Aw Linda!

Also, quick tip on ISO and aperature, maybe it will help? haha it took me a while to learn this stuff, too, so maybe Ali terms might help you... not that I'm trying to be a showoff or anything :P

ISO--if it's really sunny, use ISO 100; if it's cloudy, stick to 100-200; if it's super dark, you'll need an iso that might be up to 800 or more.

Darker outside = higher ISO = granier, may be blurrier without a tripod!

Lighter outside = lower ISO = less grainy, more sharp!

Aperture-- if you want a blurry background use the smallest aperature opening (like 2.8, or 5.6 on a standard lens), the shutter speed will take it faster
If you want a sharp background, use a bigger aperature (up to f/22) but you'll need a tripod because it will take slower

lol k bye I'm silly

Loving your outfit Linda! That sweater, your boots and bag are awesome! Your dad did a fabulous job at taking your photos. I use to work at a place where we would get a lot of regulars and the older one's were always the cutest in their sincerity. It makes you feel good.

I love your riding boots with the cute burgundy socks! And all the fall colors look so nice together. I think this is one of my favorite outfits of your's yet :) So cute for a casual day. And the place you work out sounds really great, yes to hugs and smiles!

Katie Q. said...

Girl, you can rock a beanie!

These pictures are so gorgeous with the fog rolling in the background, they're really stunning! (Dads are so great like that. My dad still uses his old film cameras and he's given me so many helpful pointers on taking better pictures. Kudos to your dad for taking such beautiful photos.) I think casual outfits are sometimes the best, this one has so many interesting elaments to it with the colors and textures. And again, love the beanie!
