So be it, I'm your crowbar, If that's what I am so far...

30 for 30 days 7 & 8. I'm going to need a pep talk soon. Figuring out outfits isn't hard (yet), but taking daily outfit pics, and editing them, and...and... I'm tired. Go check out the "SALE!" page at the top. So far I have nail polish. What else do you want to see? Makeup, bags, jewelry?

So be it, I'm your crowbar
If thats what I am so far
Until you get out of this mess
And I will pretend
That I dont know of your sins
Until you are ready to confess
But all the time, all the time
I'll know, I'll know

Shirt - J. Crew, Dress worn as sweater - Express, Jeans - Old Navy, Belt - Steve Madden (I think, don't see the name anywhere) Boots - BCBG Max Azria, Sunglasses - Chanel, Watch - Michael Kors, Earrings - House of Harlow, Ring - Target, Nail polish - Essie Angora Cardi

And you can use my skin
To bury your secrets in
And I will settle you down
And at my own suggestion,
I will ask no questions
While I do my thing in the background
But all the time, all the time
i'll know, I'll know

The BCBG boots rolled up, AKA, over-the-knee. Finally! I'm glad I put these in 30x30. I got them for Christmas and had only worn them once, but this is helping break them in. The leather was so tight Jared had to help me zip them over jeans the first time I wore them but it's much smoother sailing now.

Turtleneck - Gap, Jeans - Old Navy, Shoes - Gap, Earrings - Forever 21, Sunglasses - American Eagle, Watch - Michael Kors, Nail polish - Essie Angora Cardi

So for the time being, I'm being patient
And amidst this bitterness
If you'll consider this-even if it dont make sense
All the time-give it time

I finally wore the 1 pair of shoes I hadn't worn yet in 30 for 30 - my leopard flats. And you can't even see them! Ugh. Go figure. Oh wait. Where's August?
Oh. Nevermind.

While you try to find the lines to speak your mind
And pry it open, hoping for an encore
And if it gets too late, for me to wait
For you to find you love me, and tell me so
It's ok, dont need to say it

I'm still laughing at August in the last two shots - so funny! Just running around. Love these looks especially the last one - I love some red and leopard with denim - so classic! Nice work with the outdoor shots - I haven't quite gotten there yet - lol!

Love those boots! I for some reason have larger calves and most knee-high or higher boots just won't close on me at all. Plus I think being 5' tall would make hald of me boot in those. But they are totally fabulous!

Jessie said...

Love the red sweater... so pretty!

You're doing great! Love this red one!

Aniek said...

you loook great girl!

Joanne Faith said...

The photos are the part of 30x30 that scares me, not so much the actual outfit-making! Photo taking = time consuming.

Great to see you are getting wear out of the boots, they look rad over blue jeans.

Jess said...

Oh I love the bright red sweater! Perfect for Valentines Day!!

p.s. This is probably a really dumb question, but how do you get your pictures to appear that big? I can't seem to get mine any bigger!

Morgan said...

Super cute girl! I love all of your outfits especially those boots!
