An evening stroll

After spending nearly all of Memorial Day lounging around the house, Josh and I took Onyx out in the evening for a walk up to a nearby park. Now, I love my dog, and like any dog owner think he's the smartest, funniest, cutest dog in the whole world, but man, he was such a brat on that walk. First, he kept trying to eat sticks and garbage. Then he woofed at two people who walked past us. (Okay, so that was actually kind of funny, but I didn't want them to think he was going to attack them. At the most, he would have attacked them with kisses.) And then when we tried to take photos of him and us, he kept trying to climb on top of the hedges in these photos. So we just tied him up to a nearby post and took the photos anyway.

The pattern mixing in this outfit felt very intuitive - I think it worked so well because the top and skirt both contained red. Plus, in my opinion it's hard to go wrong combining stripes and floral print.

Lately I've been trying to use the manual focus on my camera more, but I have such crappy vision that I can't necessarily tell whether the object I'm photographing is in focus. This flower pictured above was one of the few nature photos that turned out well on our walk.

Red striped shirt: Old Navy
Floral skirt: thrifted, hemmed by me
Jean jacket: thrifted from Rerun
Espadrilles: Ann Taylor Loft (about six years ago)
Necklace: possibly American Eagle Outfitters
Red belt: free from my aunt
Blue bracelet: Dress Barn


  1. Aw love this pattern mixing Stacey! Sorry the pup was such a pain, but he sure is cute! Especially in these photos of the two of you!

  2. I think you are right about the perfect pairing of stripes and florals.

    Sorry you pup was being such a brat! Mine isn't crazy about cooperating for outfit photos either.

    Also, there should be a little wheel by the eye cup that you can use to adjust the viewfinder for your crappy vision.

  3. Congrats! Your style has definitely evolved beautifully :)
