Lookbook: Orange Crush

11/02/2012

I had this fantastic idea to take photos for the blog at a nearby orange grove. I live right next to it and thought I had some sort of "light bulb" moment when I decided that an orange grove would make a great backdrop.

I was half right and half wrong.For one, I do think this orange grove background is pretty cool and something different. But, I had no idea there would be so much mud and dirt involved. This is why there is no close-up shot of my Steve Madden booties. Also, I'm pretty sure certain I was trespassing.Just wanted to show the back of the dress, which is actually the front of the dress. I felt it would look better if I wore it backward for the high neck and the low back.H&M blazer ♥ Tobi dress ♥ Samantha necklace c/o Sarah's Boutique ♥ Would What Jackson Pollock Do Jonathan Aston tights c/o Peek Brooklyn ♥ Steve Madden booties ♥Have you ever had an "a-ha" outfit post moment that sort of turned out to be an "oh no"?
What do you think of this look?

  7. HAHA Cheryl! You are a trooper girl! You know what? You got some great shots!!! So sorry for your boots, but hopefully they will be ok. I LOVE your dress. The back/front is awesome and so is the color! Great jacket and jazzy pizzazzy tights girlfriend. I went to a pumpkin patch a couple of years ago and they had some bees flying around. I must've been allergic, because my eyes puffed up A LOT! Look like i had been in a boxing match. HAHAHAHA

  17. I loved that you wore teal to the orange orchard! Very complementary! Love that you wore the dress backwards too! Just hope no one saw your butt :P with that slit. As for trespassing, I'm sure it was ok. Did you climb a fence? If not, I'm sure it was fine. Not like you were stealing oranges!
