Habits

Everything is from Forever 21. I have issues. I know this. Dress | Scarf: (old) | Boots (old) | Rings (not online anymore)

Well, I am back in my "backyard" again. Don't know what I am talking about? Read about it here. Ross and I  just can't seem to find the time to "go on location" for pictures. Woe is me. Blah...blah..who cares, right? Most likely NOT you ladies.

Moving on...if you have been reading for awhile, you know that I was not a fan of chambray (demin) tops when they first hit the pavement. Then they started growing on me like a bad habit. And you know what bad habits tend to do? The spiral into more bad habits. And my chambray shirt "habit" expanded to a chambray dress. And guess what? I actually like this little habit of mine. This dress is super comfortable. Super versatile. And super chambray.

Another habit of mine? Scarves. Short ones. Long ones. Wools ones. Floral ones. Infinity ones. Leopard ones. Do you see a trend?

Should I continue sharing my addictions, obsessions and weaknesses? Mmmmmm, maybe for another day.  

So, what are your fashion habits? 

And oh, by the way, the ending of Gone Girl SUCKED. It left me saying, "Really?" All that for this? I hope I am not spoiling too much for those reading or planning to read. Any other good books y'all want to recommend...something with a good ending?

Well I guess I won't be ready Gone Girl. I hate a book with a bad ending. I love your backyard/new sudio/new location for pictures.I haven't taken outfit posts because it gets dark so early now. By the time I get home from work it's pitch black out. Damn winter.

Katie said...

Cute chambray dress, and I love those rings! The lighting in your photos is so pretty, and worth jumping over that fence for!

I love the dress and all things forever 21. I just picked up a scarf from there yesterday.

The backyard location works great!

Rebecca said...

I love the dress, I think I'm going to have to do a bit of investigation and see if they stock it in the UK stores.
I'm a big scarf fan but I have a habit of wearing the same one over abc over until I just get bored of it, right now it's a grey infinity scarf with an owl print on it.
You dont need to go on location, it looks like you have a pretty perfect one right there.

Alissa | Feeling Good said...

My fashion habits - oh boy... polka dots, pleats (SO many pleats) and now burgundy.

I love the way you styled this dress! I saved my sleeveless chambray dress from Target to transition to fall - definitely going to try this look!
Happy Friday!

I have been WAITING for this moment. When someone else in the world would agree that the author needs a good kick for that ending. COME ON!!!!!!!!!!! So didn't go "my" way.

I LIKE your new photo spot.

Ashley said...

I say...keep this habit going!!!

Rebecca @ Mommy in Heels said...

Katie said...

Lisa said...

I love your scarf and the dress is darling on you! You always look so cute in your "backyard" pics! I am beginning to have an addiction with scarves as well so I understand it all to well! Have a great weekend.

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

My fashion habit = whatever I see on the racks at Target. I also own Victoria's Secret PINK v-necks in every color they offer. Now I feel ashamed.

You look great Shanna, and the lighting in these pictures is so pretty! Love the subtle polka dots on your scarf.

Niki Caron said...

I love chambray and leopard together! I don't think chambray or leopard are bad habits at all! They are great :)

My bad habits are never wanting anything to match! It's to the point where I go... ohhh that matches and change. It's so weird lol.

Makaila said...

So now I am craving a F21 romp!! Adorable. I really want that dress. It's getting cold here, I'd have to wear it with leggings and boots, but how cute would that be!

Have a wonderful weekend mama!

JMc said...

Love this!! Thank you for the link. I had to pass on a dress similar to this over the weekend because they didn't have the right size (Kohls clearance). Now I need to run to F21 and try this one! habits feeding other habits, lol

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

I've worn my chambray shirt once because I don't want to iron it. I loathe ironing. I need you to teach me how to wear scarves properly.

You look super cute with your hair pulled back like that!

And Gone Girl is on my Christmas list. I'm still going to read it!

i hate you for looking so cute with your hair up!!

A J said...

I love scarves! I need more, but if you looked at my closet you might disagree.

I'm so bummed that you didn't like the ending of Gone Girl! Seemed like you were so into it, so it made me excited to get it back to start reading again. But now I'm not sure...
