Train Tracks

Sunday, December 04, 2016


My photographer Chantal and I photographed this blog in the neighborhood that I grew up in.  My house was across from the railroad tracks. I loved to watch the trains go by---there was something mesmerizing about it. 
And here I am, zillions of years later, using the train tracks as a back-drop for a photo-shoot.
I didn't color coordinate this...it just happened! As a matter of fact, I showed up in this blue dress and there was the perfect boxcar in the background with pops of the same color! 
A simple sheath dress such as this one, is so versatile. You can make it look edgy, dressy, or even work appropriate (like this outfit). I paired this royal blue dress with a double breasted plaid jacket from Banana Republic. Here are other options for similar pieces..HEREHERE and HERE. 
Next to the train tracks is a little walking path that is gorgeous in the fall. 
A black suede ankle boot is a wardrobe must-have, but I'm all about a mid-size heel that doesn't kill my feet. Here are some comfortable options--HERE, HERE and HERE.
This black patent leather bag was a consignment find from years ago. I also love this patent leather tote, which just happens to be on sale!

Off to visit my mom, she lives right around the corner.  She's still in the same house I grew up in!

Thanks for visiting!
