i don't mind dressing in green if i thought that you'd understand what i mean



Spent a beautiful afternoon taking photos with Alex in the park. It was CRAZY warm today. 65 degrees warm. What a treat! One more reason to love the South Bay.










I love when everything is green! The hills all turn brown in the sun by May, normally, so there's a very brief window where things are all bucolic and verdant like this.




On me: skirt: thrift -- top: thrift -- jacket: thrift -- shoes: Jeffrey Campbell / On Alex: cords: Levi's -- sweater: thrift -- shoes: thrift -- hat: Scala -- jacket: Vintage Members Only, thrifted







Today's title comes from The Soft Boys -- There's Nobody Like You. The Soft Boys are a really amazing, influential, and sadly under-appreciated group from the seventies. I strongly recommend their album Underwater Moonlight to any fans of post-punk and 80s alternative!

I don't understand why everything is still so green in your neck of the woods but it looks amazing!
i especially love the photograph where you guys are standing straight in front of the camera; love that type of shots!
and btw, I read but didn't comment ( due to ever so stressful exams) on the post where you revealed us your little project and media coverage ;) congratulations!!

I can not believe the green!! It was -10 here this morning & needless to say, everything is white. I love these photographs! Both of you look smashing. I actually don't know if I've heard the Soft Boys- I'll have to go look 'em up!

I'm so incredibly jealous of you for two reasons: one you are seriously just too gorgeous, and two that you have such lovely, warm weather right now! Goodness, trade places (and faces) with me right now my dear! :)

it was crazy warm over here too! I didn't get much outside time because I slept in and had some studying and cooking to do (rabbit with beer, sounds weird but tastes good). Also, you don't have a chunktastic but, you have a BOOTILICIOUS behind! Just alter slightly longer skirts to fit perfectly, wear with a fitted top and grab a pair of heels and you'll look like a slice of heaven. With junk in the trunk.

Rachel said...

Great outfits, on both of you guys! :D

Nnenna said...

Oh man, I am so jealous of how warm it is where you live! Also, everything looks so fresh and green in your pictures- it is beautiful :)

SMASH said...

Woohoo for photo adventures on nice days! Although i'll be the first to admit that 65 degrees is like heavy coat weather in my head (im a wuss) ;)
