Fashion Blogger in an Empty Field

Wednesday, June 30, 2010
Yes, the stereotypical "fashion blogger in the empty field" shot. There are TONS of these empty fields where my husb grew up. That also tells you what kind of town we're in................................and how exciting it is.

I liked the way I belted my belt. And that's a picture of my face.

I almost didn't wear these black flat ankle boots I thrifted a while ago. I imagine them with skinnies but it's too hot to wear anything that suffocating. Because I was blessed with short stubby legs, I opted for an above-the-knee dress to make my legs look longer.

Random trip picture of the day:
Baywalk in Manila, Philippines
The sunset really was that pink and beautiful! While we were walking around, a couple of older ladies stopped us and commented on how white we were. They were really friendly and I'm pretty sure one of them had a crush on my BIL.

  1. I love the way you tucked and looped your belt, and the straw hat is perfect with this dress!

    What a gorgeous sunset!

  2. Haha, I love it. The ubiquitous "shot in the field." :) Where I was born it is just as full of empty fields, I should have totally grabbed a "fashion blogger" moment.

    Love you in the blue dress with the belt. Quite sweet and chic.

  3. Nice photos and pose :) Funny story about that picture!! It is really nice over at Manila Bay. I use to go there a lot when I was a kid! I don't remember those lights being there, but I'm sure a lot has changed over the last few decades. Nice hat and belt twist.

  4. you're rocking that field.
    and i love how you always make simple looks exceptionally chic and your own, like that little twist on the belt or the unexpected shoe.

  5. Love the dress and the hat! and the belt :)

  6. looooooooove how you tied that belt!

  7. I love how you tied your belt! Makes it way more interesting! I love having black and brown together, I don't think it clashes at all

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love the way you tucked your belt! I always wanted to know how to belt a belt without using the belt holes.

    Do you recommend any online sites that I can get a good bargain on shoes?

    ReplyDelete
  9. The way you wore the belt is so creative and I love the Manila shot. :)

  10. @Justine Hi Justine! I highly recommend endless.com. I love that they have free shipping and return shipping and you can also do cashback at many sites like fatwallet.com or ebates.com. The prices aren't what I call bargains. If you want to get some cheap but stylish shoes, you should check out gojane.com. But they don't have free shipping and they're kind of expensive to return ship. Anyway, hope this answered your question! If not, please email me!

  11. There are so many things that I love about this outfit! First the color combination - navy + brown + black = love! And I totally love how you did your belt - what a great idea! Just awesome - way to rock it!

  17. Hey! I grew up in an area with lots of fields and lots of woods to roam in. Excitement followed me everywhere I went--or maybe I was following it! =)

    You managed to look amazing out there in the middle of nowhere.

  20. Been silently stalking your blog for a while now... I love how this (and all your outfits) seem effortless. Always believable, never over-the-top or trying-too-hard. BIG fan.

    Check me out some time:

  23. Great way to tie the belt and that hat is fab.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That belt knot is off the hook, really like it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Is it lame that I actually have been scouting out plain fields in hopes of securing a rather cloistered blogging photo shoot spot? I mean, look how it turned out for you! Use boring fields to your advantage! Obviously Mother Nature only put out fields for bloggers, amirite? :)

    PS: I love the hat with the dress with the booties-- it's just all great!

  31. I like how you corporates those shoes to a summer dress. And your hair looks really nice vawy after a while

    ReplyDelete
  32. So simple and chic, I love it! I love the way you did your belt, I always have to tuck and loop it that way as well because the belts are always huge!

    And I feel you, I was blessed with short legs as well, and it is quite the challenge sometimes to make them even look a normal length lol

    Happy 1st of July!

    Haha I went a little comment crazy, but I guess that's what happens when I've been this absentee..
    Well I think it's not so much about the field but about the blogger/outfit and you're rocking it.
    My town is more all trees as far as the eye can see. Fields seem nice =]
