Street styled: slouchy t-shirt, skinny jeans, grandpa cardigan, and platform slides

My husband-slash-photographer and I are always really happy when we discover a “perfect” new spot to add to our roster of photoshoot locations…and this one is certainly going on the list!!

When I first embarked on this personal style blogging journey (three years ago next month, in case you’re wondering!) I imagined that Robin and I would just pop a few pics wherever we happened to be headed for the day; and that’s still true…to a degree!!

What we’re learning over time (as I expect most bloggers do!) is that not every location works well as an outfit “backdrop;” and while some places would be ideal, they have way too many passersby (both vehicles and pedestrians) for comfort.

It’s not that I’m embarrassed to have my photo taken, mind you – I’m well beyond that! – but it’s a bit of a pain in the a** to be constantly interrupted while cars drive by and people walk past!!  So any place that gives a “street style” feel without all the hassle??  It instantly gets a place at the top of that list!!  🙂

    Your chunky cardigan looks great! I wish it wasn't this hot here so I could wear one too…

      Our summer so far has been rather a "non-event" here in Vancouver, dearest Anett…which makes a cotton sweater like this one mighty handy to have on hand!! 😉
