Keeping It Casual - 5 (Link Up)


Loft (yellow) blouse, F21 (pink) blouse, A.N.A shorts via JCP, Gap sandals, F21 jewelry

* Before you scroll down, know that no bloggers nor their husbands were harmed during the photo shoot for this post. 

This is the first time that I have squeezed (yes, squeezed) into these shorts in a few weeks. Obviously my legs have not seen the light of day in about five years and I am not ashamed. Okay, maybe I am just a little. At least they aren't covered completely in bruises like they were this time last year. Last year I decided to dance in our recital so my legs had plenty of bruises from all of the floor work in our dance. This year, not so much. I am not dancing in the recital, but I kind of wish that I was. The girls are dancing to 'Sway' by Michael Buble and I have made it sort of a salsa-ish dance. A lot of hip shaking and a lot of fun.


When we took these pictures the other day, I was completely out of ideas as to where we should do them. My husband suggested these tracks, which we haven't used in a long time. 


So here I am, strutting my stuff, feeling all awkward because I don't have a handbag (somehow those give me confidence when taking pictures) and I just hear my husband say 'Um...'


Don't worry, we got off the tracks in plenty of time. 

Link up your casual look below! And please, make sure that you are a follower of this blog before linking up and make sure you link back to my blog in your post.

  29. You are gorgeous girl and there is absolutely nothing to say about your stems other than they are absolutely fabulous! I love all of the color in today's look. It's such a bright and cheery outfit and makes me miss the sun (we're having heavy storms here in TX today). I can't wait to join this link up! I started a new series and link up on my blog today. I'd love for you to stop by and link up with your styling (new or old) of today's item. Hope to see you there! Happy Wednesday!!

  48. that is one very big reason i've never gone to take photos on the train tracks! those trains go by quite frequently and I have visions of my camera and tripod biting the dust.
