I love moments of spontaneous creativity and last minute photos. That's exactly how the above snaps happened. Martin & I were both sick and miserable this weekend, and off to dutifully do our grocery shopping. Because we had no food. I threw on some easy layers, looked at Martin, we did a knowing nod, and thought, yes, photos! When inspired, it's best to roll with it. I'm glad we did because I'm quite smitten with how the pictures turned out.

One of the main reasons I started "By The Shore" was to challenge myself creativity in both my photography and writing. Unfortunately, those intentions haven't really been in bloom these past few months. But lately, it feels as though there's a new creative re-birth happening, a calling and a new bend in the road. I'm excited to see where it leads me. I'm feeling the need to cement my passions and make more time to nurture my creativity. I have lots of ideas. Hopefully, some of which I'll get the chance to share with you!

Outfit wise? Oh man, I could live in Madewell cardigans, boyfriend jeans and slouchy boots. In fact, you just might see a version of this outfit a few more times on the blog. No joke! It's my favourite uniform.

27 sweet notes:

  1. lovely, lovely outfit. hope you're feeling better again!

  2. Beautiful scarf and jacket! You look gorgeous!


  3. Happiest of Mondays, V! I hope you're feeling better today :) And as for your uniform, what's not to love? I'm still on my neverending search for my perfect pair of boyfriend jeans - which I suspect are to be found at Madewell, must make a trip to Seattle to confirm that soon - but in the meantime I love taking inspiration from how others style their pairs. I'm storing it all away for when I finally have my own! I'm loving this simple take on the classics. And the pop of colour from your scarf is so lovely.

  4. I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling crummy! You look adorable here. I particularly love the scarf and the boots!
