Take Me Home

"Um, dad, I think that's a train coming,"
"Oh, that? is." he contemplated the rapidly approaching lights chugging down the tracks.

In all the many times I'd skipped along these railroad tracks, I'd never had a train actually pass through. We quickly scurried off to the side and awkwardly waited for it to continue on. Made for an interesting photo shoot to say the least.

I feel like I haven't wandered on these railroad tracks in ages. However, for Thanksgiving break, I took a trip home and visited my parents for a small, heartwarming time with family.

Of course, being the fashion blogger that I am, I subtly hinted to dad that getting photos at one of my old, favorite haunts would be fantastic. He's such a great sport (and photographer)!

I've had a ridiculous obsession with cropped tops lately, and if they're graphic print ones, all the better. Paired with high waisted skirts or shorts, they're the perfect marriage. Next on my list is to find some flattering high waisted jeans. I'd probably never take them off.

Oh, so I need your help with something!
Since reviewing a pair of Firmoo glasses, they've entered me into their Blogger Awards Contest! Thing is, it's a vote-based contest. Soooo, if you would oh so kindly click over HERE to vote for me, I would be the most grateful of souls. For a four-eyed chick with college fees to fret over, the prize package is just too strong of an appeal to not blatantly flaunt this plea all over the internet.

So...pretty please? With a cherry on top?
You're all the best!

love this shoot and your look! Honestly some of my favorite high waisted jeans and jeggings are from Garage and express. I've heard Pac sun has some cute ones too but they just don't fit me right!

You pull off the crop top/high-waist bottoms look so well, I think shorts with tights is one of favorite kind of look. Pretty funny about the train though! Your dad has a goof eye for pictures, these came out great and I'm so happy you got to go home for thanksgiving. (And heading over to vote for you now!)

Mica said...

Love this look, girl! The stripes on the top and the marled socks are perfect together!

I have a couple sky-high pairs of jeans from American Eagle Outfitters -- I recommend them, they're great with crop tops!

Crop tops with high waisted jeans have totally been my go to outfit lately. Forever 21 has decent, but super cheap high waisted jeans!

Love this outfit, especially the grunge vibes because red and black stripes always remind me of Kurt Cobain and his famous jumper! :)

Voted! and yay for good-sport-dad. They are kind of the best. :D

Basically I love your outfit here and how confident you are with your strong, powerful body. The crop top is something people have reservations about wearing but you pull it off effortlessly and make the color shine.

Haha aw! That sounds like it was a fun little shoot. How nice of your dad to take pics! I only trust my mom to take them. She sits on a bucket and pushes the button after I set everything on manual. She can use the light meter now--I'm so proud! But yeah, YAY FOR PARENTS!

I love that hat on you. You can pull off hats so very well, Linda! And I'm glad you got pics at this neat little location.

I apologize for no posting---I've been busy with art thangs as I am sure you've noticed, but I appreciate your understanding and and loveliness. I WILL RETURN, MY LOVE FOR YOU!!!! FOR YOUUUU!!! <3

*big hug and rushes out*
