floppy hat: thrifted
80's burnt sienna shawl: thrifted
gray t-shirt: urban outfitters
black lace bra: thrifted
black faux leather sash belt: american apparel
black velvet stirrup leggings: american apparel

i finally got over my nervousness and asked my boyfriend to take some outfit pictures for me.  truthfully i was inspired by a lot of your blogs, there seem to be quite a few of you who are brave enough to let your signifigant other take your outfit shots all the time.  i think that is so nice!  i was specifically inspired by the beautiful tieka of Selective Potential.  if you are not reading her blog already, go and add her!  she's my favorite new-found internet friend, plus her husband takes these gorgeous pictures of her in always amazing outfits.  you can almost see how much they love each other in the pictures.  so cute.  but anways, taking pictures wth leonard was actually really fun!  and he did such a good job! thank you len, i love you.  he wasn't supposed to come and visit me this weekend, we were going to stay in our respective cities and miss each other but catch up on house cleaning and laundry and other boring things you do when you're boyfriend in not in town visiting for one day.  but then friday rolled around and neither of us could stand the idea of going a whole other week without seeing each other so he hopped on the bus in nyc and made it here last night.  this morning he made a breakfast feast for us: fried egg sandwiches with cheese and avacados, bacon, fresh grapefruit, and fried tomatoes.  i am so lucky to be his girlfriend.  i think we're spending the rest of the day on the couch watching food network.

He did such a great job with your pics. My hubby took my pics for the first time today and I was pleasantly surprised, although he didn't have much fun taking them.

punky said...

awesome job! I kinda get shy when the bf takes my picture. I much rather do it with a tripod or girlfriends.

Caitlin said...

Adorable! I love that hat on you.

Are you and your bf long distance? My bf and I had to do that at the beginning of our relationship. It's tough but it makes you so grateful for time together.

kendal croix said...

so in love with that floppy hat.

stephanie renee said...

he did such a good job, it took a little getting use to when my husband starting taking photos. i adore that hat!

Jessica said...

Thanks so much for your comment!

I've browsed thrift stores but never found one, so once I save up some money I might just find one online.

Like I said, my boyfriend and I used to be long distance. I think being apart at the beginning of our relationship has made us so much stronger and appreciative of each other now. I wouldn't change a thing.

Jeni said...

Is this your first outfit post with photos? You look great! You should be a model for American Apparel haha.
