Perfectly Persimmon


One of the reasons I love to include gifs (moving pictures) in posts is because the outdoors isn't static. I'm usually being blown around by the wind, getting rained on, or attacked by insects. The other day there were about a dozen snakes sunning themselves everywhere (which was a bit disconcerting). Regardless of what I experience, a picture is a single captured moment and usually full of deceptive serenity. A moving picture shows you the wind or rushing water; a more accurate depiction of a day.

On an entirely different note: I really love a good yellow bag to lug all my "baggage" around in. My loyal mustard yellow purse was beginning to look worse for the wear (fraying stitches and such), so finding this perfectly persimmon bag was basically a match made in heaven. Add to the equation that the bag is made from recycled leather and the drawstrings make it possible to style it in a bucket shape and it really can't be beat.

  1. I love this outfit - especially the yellow/indigo theme. The little jacket is adorable - so useful for this time of year and it really smartens up an outfit but looks so comfy.

  2. I love the locations for your shoots, the gifs are such a cute addition too! This is a great outfit, I love it!

  3. The colors are lusciously bold here-- I love the bag! both the name (I love persimmons) and the shape. I like gifs too, since they give us a peek into the 3D while still remaining silent.

    And aahhhh I would be more than a little disconcerted about those snakes, too. D:

  4. I can totally relate to the activeness of nature while taking photos. In my latest photos I was nearly attacked by several giant bumblebees and a black spider. I do fine with most things except spiders. The worst is stepping in a pile of leaves and suddenly a bunch of spiders are crawling all over my legs. CREEPS ME OUT!

    Also, I totally inadvertently matched you in my post today. :o)

  26. I love the bag! I had considered getting it too, but I don't think I'd have anything to match it... my wardrobe consists of mostly dark colors...
    The shoes are also quite lovely too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I want your shoes!!! I had those shoes in my cart at Amazon.com for the longest time and forgot that I had them in my cart and they eventually sold out! I have done it numerous times! That's a pretty bad habit cause I could be styling them like yours right now! ;)

    ReplyDelete

  39. those shoes are GORGEOUS! and that last picture is probably my favorite photo of you. it's adorable!

  40. Love the outfit, particularly the shoes! Those painted platforms/heels are super duper awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love those shoes and the knee socks. But I'm afraid that every time I try to do a knee-high sock thing, I end up looking like a soccer player. Not a good look.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love the bag color, but it seems like the straps are really long and not adjustable (from the pictures). Too bad for us shorties who don't want to cross-body EVERY thing! I do love the platforms though, perfect with the grey socks.
