Night Time Checkers

I wasn't planning on taking outfit photos tonight, but when I came home from work Dan looked at me and said "Are you ready to go out and take some pictures?" I just couldn't turn him down. He was so excited that you all liked the ones he took yesterday and checked the comments throughout the day. Tonight he played around with some night photos and had some definite opinions about them. He even tried to convince me to change my jacket because I wore it yesterday and he found it visually uninspiring. So apparently, I have a new photographer contributing to my blog:)

I felt like playing around with patterns today, so I decided to wear the jacket again and paired it with this blue and white dress (worn as a blouse). I was also really inspired by all of the Swedish Hasbeens that I've been seeing on various blogs and decided to do my own take on the look with these black tights and light brown sandals.

Dan and I both really liked the way that the photos turned out, I hope you all do too.

  1. This is so lovely!

  2. The lighting is so lovely ans what a cute outfit.

  3. i love the lighting in these pictures, it captures the brown tones so well. very pretty!

    i looked up the weather for tomorrow and it's suppose to be 56 and 59 for wed! but i'm not going to complain because i love it!

  4. How amazing is that that Dan suggested and wanted to take photos!! That is awesome! You look fabulous as always, and I just love those Clarks shoes!!

  5. Looks like you guys had a great time! I love how the photos turned out and love that blouse :)

  6. I love the photos... night time photography takes a lot of skills to master but Dan did so well. The lighting is perfect, the mood is excellent, the model is captivating and the photographer is awesome. Have a great day! xoxo

  7. It's so sweet that he's so enthusiastic about taking photos for you! Great look. I love the belt, bag and shoes together.

    P.S. I LOVE Pulp Fiction. I'm a huge Tarantino fan. Have you seen Inglorious Basterds yet?

  8. wow it's hilarious how into outfit photos your husband is! awesome!

  9. Your jacket and those shoes are lovely! Haha how fun to have an enthusiastic photographer like Dan! The night time pictures turned out nicely!

  10. Ah, Quentin. A brilliant man, at times. I'm so happy your husband is getting into the blog -- it can be incredibly fun taking photos together. I get the feeling you and your man have a good creative flow -- I can tell from the pictures. He's a very talented photographer, and you are a captivating subject!


  11. These pictures are pretty rad. Is this on a 'nighttime' setting on the camera? My night setting generally makes pictures turn out like this. Or is it just long time exposure? Either way, I really like them.
    I'm a mighty big fan of that top, it's very nice.

  12. really cool ensemble! love all the details..

  22. The jacket looks great paired with your outfit! I'm also a fan of the Swedish Hasbeens and love the black tights and tan heels together. These are fantastic night photos. I'm so happy that we all have such supportive husbands who love doing photo shoots with us for our blogs!

    Pulp Fiction is one of my favorites. It is a true classic!
