Camo Up

Blouse & Necklace: c/o Our World Boutique   Skirt: Debs   Heels & Jacket: thrifted   Beanie: c/o Shop Lately


So first off, I apologize for the graininess of these photos - thus the heavier hand in editing. Normally I wouldn't post these, but the story that accompanies them wouldn't be genuine if I didn't include the actual photos that came from it.

On Sunday night, I came back from work and changed into an outfit I was planning on wearing later that week and decided to get some photos done while I had free time. I changed, grabbed my phone and wallet, and headed out the door, automatically locking the door behind me.
I was halfway down the stairs when it hit me: Did I grab my keys?
Frantically I patted down my pockets, and when they came up empty, I realized my predicament - I was locked out.

Thank goodness I had my phone on me! I was able to call my parents and they helped me break back in. The irony of it was, I hadn't really been locked out. I'd stood there jiggling and banging against the door the whole time before they drove over, but when dad walked up, he just gave it a good push and swish. The door opened. SERIOUSLY?? So now I've got three spare keys made.

By the time the commotion had died down, I'd lost most of the valuable sun I'd been hoping to use. I really like this outfit though, and it's probably the last chance I'll have to show bare legs. Winter is coming!

Thanks to Our World Boutique, I was finally able to jump on the camouflage print bandwagon with the blouse they sent me. I love the studded embellishments on it too (of course, you had to see that coming). Plus, this necklace is the perfect match with it! And I know I'm starting to overwear this beanie, but I just can't help it. It's seriously the perfect touch to every outfit.

There is nothing worse than being locked out! I'm glad it was easy for you to find your way back in! Thank goodness for Dads! You look absolutely stunning. I LOVE the camo with the leather, and the beanie is just so perfectly, Linda. LOVE it!!

The sheer and the gold are nice, feminine touches to soften the camo. And your legs look so wonderful here, dear :) Cute little chapeau as well!

Oh man, I feel your pain! I locked myself out of our former home several times and each time I had to call my dad. Dads, master locksmiths and so much more. :). And hey, its those awesome thrifted caged heels again! It always feels like such a victory when you can thrift nice shoes.(we're the same size and I always have the same problem, all of the cute shoes at the thrift store are 6-7)

I am not a fan of the camo trend. It reminds me of hillbillies? But that's probably because that's the only kind of person who wears it in Ohio...anyways, I think you rock it nicely and make it edgy/chic. I am still, however, swooning for this hat!

Jo said...

The Misfit beanie is really what caught my attention. Oops... Your house was so easy to break into! You've to take heed not to let anyone nearby know about it. =)

Peet said...

Oh, you lucky gal... The days of bare legs have long ended here, damn you winter!:) Thumbs up for the camo and definitely thumbs up for the misfit hat, I want that!!

P.S.: I'm sure your dad felt like a real hero after that.:D

Elana said...

Oh, no! I've been locked out too many times to count (because I'm careless and always forget my keys haha) so I know the feeling. Glad you were able to get in though!

I used to hate the camo trend, but I'm starting to like it more and more when I see it on classy pieces like this. You totally make it work, and I love how it looks with that skirt and necklace!

by the way, sounds like a typical Murphy's law, this story with your keys.

Hi dear
Great outfit, super original and cool!
Love the necklace and the beanie

Brittney said...

I love how editorial your posts are becoming! I've always been drawn to blogs that put that extra effort into photo processing and presentation. You could probably trade in the sandals for boots and be set for the lower temperatures.

Thankfully you got in and nothing was damaged. I think this happens to a lot of us. What we do is give a spare key to a good friend or neighbour just in case. Loving this urban chic outfit, its an exciting new way to style camo, Adorable beanie. I hope you have an inspiring week ahead doll!
