Lookbook: Country Girl

I took these pictures while at my in-laws house which is in a large(ish) city but is quite different than Seattle so I call it "the country" as they have a bigger yard than anyone I know in Seattle. It's about a 4-5 hour drive there so we don't get to visit as often as we would like but we always have a great time there.

Since we were in "the country" I toned down my look to a simple tee and shorts. Much easier to run around and chase the dogs in!

What I'm Wearing:
Tee: J. Crew
Shorts: Lily and Jae
Shoes: Steven by Steve Madden
Sunnies: Marc by Marc Jacobs
They have this awesome deck that we just sit out with the dogs and enjoy a cup of coffee in the mornings. The weather is always a bit nicer over there as well so we got to spend a bit of time in the sun. J and his mom went out for a bit and I was "working from home" so I sat outside with the dogs and took some self portraits. All these were taken with the Canon 5d Mark II, and the 50mm f/1.2L lens on self timer.
I pulled my hair in a french braid and side ponytail again. It's such a great way to keep your hair out of your face, especially since my bangs are at that weird long-ish stage now and they are always in my face.

These were one of the shoes that I bought for the Jamaica wedding shoot. I love the braid detail. I'm usually not one for Steve Madden (they have always hurt my feet) and these ones aren't the most comfortable either but the design was too cute to pass up.
The dogs had to get into some of the lookbook action too. Macho is in the back and Jelly Bean (my in-laws dog) is in the front.

But for the most part, Macho just slept in the sun. Oh, to live a dog's life. :)

I am sooo glad it's Friday, how about you? Have a fabulous weekend dolls!
