Drink The Wild Air

Can you spot the ships in the background of these photographs? Ghost ships; military vessels not in use, but not quite abandoned to the elements. They keep them in good condition and wait for a day when they are necessary for training or otherwise (more often it's training). They seem so mysterious to me; close but unreachable, deserted but guarded. Some nights their lights come on, but most nights they disappear into the twilight...

Outfit details:
UO bomber
thrifted skirt
Tabio tights
Juicy Couture purse

I'm always so afraid to pair brown and black together, but you've pulled it off nicely! And I love the back-seam nylons!!

Photo #5 (Sitting on a Stump) is a fabulous shot. I particularly like how the branches frame your head. Just wonderful.

Hello, I was just wondering if your hair color is natural of if you dye it, because I love it and have been wanting to dye my hair almost that exact same shade for quite some time.

Laura said...

Love the blouse - and the whole outfit, really. You pull off the Audrey/gamine look so well :)

Loren said...

Gorgeous. Like usual. I'm loving the seemed tights although I know I'd be terrible at keeping them straight all day :)
The muddy shoes shot is my favorite.

MarieBayArea said...

Nice tights. I love the seam in the back. The way you styled them with this outfit makes it more cute and sexy than over the top sexy, which I can really appreciate.

SUNDAY ROSE said...

I really love how you're daringly incorporating more separates into your wardrobe! Where on earth do you find such beautiful, mint-conditioned thrifted items?

Meli said...

I love the black gloves. I'm sure they were a practical addition, but that add a little bit of bad girl to your sweet look

Jennifer King said...

Great photos. And I love the backs of your tights!

Rock on! I love a person that can rock brown and black at the same time! Kudos to you.

I really love mixing brown and black and you did a perfect job in this outfit! The bomber jacket is wonderful; I'd love to have one like that in my collection. I really like the cute retro detail of the backseam tights too.

I second the comment about how you created your look in neutrals - deep chocolate and black. Works so well with the background! And the touch gloves look perfect on you :)
