The Closest Exit On The Right...

The thermometer said 45 degrees...that says nothing about the wind... When people say it is cooler and windier along the lake...they are definitely not kidding!




Skirt, sweater-Old Navy/booties-DSW/Jewelry-Target, F21

I found this great place to take photos about a mile from my office, right along the lake.  I am definitely going to frequent this spot...once the wind decides to stop blowing my tripod over...I had to pick it up five time before I could start shooting!!
I never thought I would love a polka dot sweater...but I do.  I stopped by Old Navy Sunday and picked up a few things at their sale...this sweater was $10...steal!  They had some of their spring stuff out...I fell in love with a striped cotton dress...I am going to have to pick it up the next time I have a coupon.
I have got some great ideas on how to style up this sweater...next time I am thinking paired with my black lace skirt...I have been loving the black and blue color combo lately!

Great new photo spot. Can't wait to see more pics from there. Also I just ordered that sweater in pink...can't wait to start sporting it.

Great sweater! Polka dots are going to be hot for spring (according to my Lucky magazine, ha ha)! This will definitely be a great place for your photos too.

I love your new photo taking spot! It really makes me miss riding my bike along the beach though - can't wait for warmer weather to come back!

Don't you love finding new photo spots?! When my tripod was blowing over (I take pics along a lake a lot) I put my jacket through the middle of the tripod to weigh it down and it worked like a charm! Old Navy has had some awesome sales lately, great find on that sweater and I love the idea of styling it with a black lace skirt. Very chic!

I love the sweater! I wonder if there's any left in Tacoma. It would look so cute with pink, too!

I love that sweater, it's definitely one I'm tempted to go get. The possibilities for it seem endless! I can't wait to see how you remix it :)

Oh no, I hope your camera wasn't on it when it fell over!

I must say that your trip was worth the effort, because that sky is so beautiful, and I love your polka dot sweater!

Chic on the Cheap
