how we wore it

So, let me start by saying that I have wanted in on this action for a looong time. I think maybe 6-8 months I have been seeing other bloggers posting these how we wore it posts once a month and instantly it reminded me of a way more believable Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. So every month i'm like "k, how do I get in on this???" 
WELL PEOPLE THIS MONTH WAS MY MONTH! I finally got in! I was stoked! Here is our inspiration:
 Life with Emily
I was a little apprehensive about this months outfit.  It seemed pretty spring-like and we're heading into fall. Plus after my last sprained ankle incident of 2013 I have sworn off heels bigger than 2 inches.  I also have sworn off ripped jeans and have not quite gotten the art of rolled pant legs down yet (why is it so hard! roll too much, looks weird, don't roll enough, a flood is coming!)
 So I decided to  make it my own by fall-itize this look with my favorite boots in the entire world and non-ripped jeans. So here's what it turned out to be:

big time lolz at Mark making me pick up these rose petals and throw them

So many laughing pictures but that's what you get when you work with #markhphotography

Yeah ok so here's the thing about orange. I don't know how me and orange fit. Our relationship is still at the awkward stage. Is it the best color on me? Definitely not. Purple wins on that round. However does it look as bad as yellow does on my blonde body? Verdict is still out.

Ok so the boots. THE BOOTS! Lucky Boots. On Sale. I had heard rumors they were comfy and now I bear testimony that it is true and then some. They are the only shoes I can wear while teaching (INCLUDING MY NIKES) that don't hurt my feet at the end of the day!!!!!!! (!!!!!!!!!)
The top. Of course, is from thredup. They are still doing the free $20 for the a first time buyer. Check out my posts here about that.

Special shoutout to Mark on this one. I was getting ready for these pictures and I was being so annoying. I was complaining about how fat and ugly I felt and I was just like breaking down and saying I didn't want to do it but Mark calmed me down and took me to a pretty place to take pictures and was so patient even though he was starving (so was I, and I was not being such a gem about that fact) and it was all fine! He is such a supportive and awesome person.
