Junkyards and peter pan collars

Meet Jennifer: 

I don't even think I need to explain why this is my favorite set of photos I've posted on this blog (thus explaining the photo overload), but I'll tell you why anyway:

  • My friend, Jennifer (photographer-extraordinaire) took them.
  • This junkyard behind her apartment complex was almost too good to be true.
  • The light was perfect.
  • We took them as the dough for these cookies was chilling in the fridge. 
  • Everything about this outfit just screams, "me." Peter Pan collar, cropped sweater, riding boots, kitty ring, utility jacket, colored tights, my favorite thrifted bag.... Everything I love.
  • I managed not to get any dirt on my white dress. I did however get plenty of cookie crumbs on there later that night at a friend's apartment. 
Enjoy this while it lasts, because after today, I'll back with lower-quality photos behind the newspaper office. For now, though, let me bask in the glory of this beautiful post. 

Also, while I have you, don't forget to check Flock Together for more intro posts this week!

  1. Love this!
    Your outfit is beautiful, and that pink tractor!!!!

  2. this outfit and the background is entirely fall! love your outfit, that jacket is awesome

  3. I'm in love with this! The colors are fall perfection, burgundy and cream and army green- just dreamy! Oh yeah, the background is also awesome. Anything that looks decrepit, rusty, peeling, or old makes for my favorite types of backdrops! I have to admit, the first thing I thought was, oh no, her white dress is going to get ruined! Haha! I have a kitty ring from Oasap finally coming to me in the mail, can't wait to join you and Katherine in the cat-ring club!
    Happy Monday!

  8. The backgrounds for these photos are definitely quite fun!

    I love this outfit- so many things. The burgundy of the tights might be the best part though. Somehow that and the evergreen of the coat scream "fall" to me!
