when the west wind moves

field
song of the day: 'fields of gold' by sting
you guys i am having so much fun taking my camera on the road! this morning, i just grabbed my stuff and drove around until i found a place. i knew i wanted something more nature-ish since i do so much in the middle of town. anyway, i found this field and thought it was the perfect photo spot. i may be returning to this one.
this outfit is just so 'me.' it's like my clothing comfort zone: dress, boots, tights, big cozy sweater. which is funny since taking pictures out and about is getting me beyond my comfort zone. but anyway, this is something that just feels good. sometimes you don't want to worry about trying to look super fashionable or hip or cool or whatever buzz word the kids use today and you just want to be you. and this is it for me.
and i want to thank you all for your awesome comments. i love it when you respond to the things i talk about in my posts. it makes me feel good that you read what i have to say and not just look at the pictures. plus, it's so great to connect with you guys. i love hearing your stories and what's going on in your lives. keep them coming. they really mean more than you know :)

how lovely!!! I haven't heard Sting's Fields of Gold in so long. I used to love that song when it came out. I need to listen to it now. Thanks for getting it in my head.

You looked so relaxed in these photos and very pretty! I really love that sweater with the summery dress.

And kudos for going out on your own and finding a new place to do photos. I know for myself, I struggle with that.

fabulous print on that dress! I'm really loving your on the road posts too! Thanks so much for being a dear and for your kind comments!

I really like the golden glow in these pictures. Also, I have a similar pair of boots that I didn't really know how to wear for the upcoming fall and you've just inspired me to take the girly route and wear a pretty printed dress +jacket/cardi....

I love that you are taking pictures out and about! I am so impressed, as I still feel nervous about people seeing me take pictures of myself! So way to go! This is a beautiful location, and I love the outfit.

Its hard to get out of your comfort zone. I find myself wearing similar things just because its what I do. Great outfit...you've inspired me to listen to Sting! I loved that song when I was younger.
