On the Tracks

Firstly, the wonderful  and oh-so-sweet Courtney of I CAN BE MANY THINGS, asked me to do a little guest post for her! Click here and find out what makes me smile... :)
Also, while you are there, check out Courtney's many other great posts. She is such a beautiful person inside and out and I am so happy she asked me to guest post.



Secondly, I got an early Birthday present from my sweet husband. Boots! 
I have been wanting a pair of tall, brown boots with some sort of buckle detail on them for awhile now, so when I found these babies on sale, we had to snatch um up!

Dress & Tights-H&M
Belt-UO
Boots-Payless 


I decided to pair them with this dress not only because I have been wanting to remix it, but also because I loved the mix of pretty/feminine with the edginess of the buckle and zipper on the boot. 



Little about me:
I really like railroad tracks. During summer time when I was a kid, my cousins and I would walk down to a little burger joint that served the best ice cream cones. We would get our ice cream, walk along the railroad tracks and then plop down, eat our ice cream and skip rocks on the river that the tracks went around.

So since railroad tracks have always been a little nostalgic for me, I was more than happy to find these old, unused tracks just a few blocks from our place. It was such a perfect fall day, yesterday, when we took these photos... I get a happy feelin' just lookin at those tracks..


P.S.
Time to give credit where credit is due.
I get so many lovely comments about the photography on here! Thanks :)
But, none of these images where I am in the photo, would be possible without the awesome, patient help of my husband. He is so sweet for following me around and listening to my crazy photo demands.
Soo..if I am not in the photo, then I took it....if I am....thanks to Tim!

  13. What a cool story! I don't have any cool stories, but I have always been mesmerized with railroad tracks. But every time I go to take my OOTD photos by them, something happens that derails me (really it does, that wasn't just an excuse to use a bad pun).

    I love your boots! What a sweet early birthday present. My oldest son's bday is in one week, when's yours?

    I love your yellow tights too!
