That Preppy 60s Vibe

Hello, my lovely friends! This photo shoot has many accomplishments attached to it. To start with, I took these photos myself. Me, my tripod and little remote (Thanks, Dad!). Despite having a blog and very social lifestyle, I'm actually a private person. Packing up my stuff, driving to a park and photographing myself in front of others gave me complete and utter anxiety. However, I did it! I did it, guys. I kept repeating "you're doing this for your readers" and I got the courage to do it. Oye.

I learned a ton and I hope to get the courage to do it again. It was such a beautiful day, I couldn't pass it up.

I'll chat about my second success after talking about my outfit! ...

These jeans are everything I have been looking for and they were on sale. I originally went into Anthropologie for these latte bowls and walked out with a few more pieces than I expected! These jeans are not only a statement, they're also comfortable. They have a nice light stretch, deep pockets and long hem lines. The inseam for these jeans, in a regular, is 32'. A petite girls dream! 3' heels make these jeans just right.

I can't wait to pair these with my Spring attire!

As promised, my second accomplishment is: listening to my own artistic sense and style.

After the overwhelming amount of compliments I received and, more importantly, how I feel in these jeans: no one's opinion matters more than your own. I was once told that jeans like these don't do anything for my figure and the pockets would make my hips look wider. I'm so happy I didn't listen to that person.

This is real progress and a great lesson for anyone. It's also a great reminder to not allow that type of negativity into your life. Especially from someone that's supposed to be your friend.  Trust your gut with your own style, loves.
