Believe it or not, we haven't had many beautiful days this spring to take outdoor photos for Fashion Snag.  I am happy to have the studio so I can always photograph whatever outfits I am feeling that day, but I don't think anything can compare to the landscape of Colorado in an outdoor shoot.  It can be a cool day in Denver, but if the sun is shining it will warm you up just enough to feel comfortable.  I snagged this Haute Hippie suede western shirt off of Shopbop for 50% off.  I always wanted a suede button down shirt even though it is an impractical item to own in terms of laundering and wearing a lot.  I like that this shirt is fitted for a more feminine look.  This one has wings on the back near the top and an HH emblazoned across for Haute Hippie.  To tell you the truth, I could have done without the HH, but in all other respects I am in love with the shirt.  It is a brown color, which is great for Colorado and fits in with the western theme.  A black suede shirt might seem a little too dressy.  I have to say that Haute Hippie makes such beautiful pieces.  I can see myself in all their collections, but the prices are high so I like to wait for a sale on most items. 

When I was looking for a sleeveless white dress to go with this suede brown shirt I ran into a real big problem.  All my white dresses had sleeves, which would not work with the fitted sleeves of the shirt.  All the other white dresses were not what I had in mind as well so I settled on the one dress I could find, which is actually a dress I purchased at the Tucker Brown boutique in Aspen, Colorado last year.  I photographed it for Fashion Snag as well so you can see how I wore it in the last post.  It worked pretty well once I layered it over my Only Hearts nude slip since it is sheer, but I realized I need some more sleeveless white summer dresses in my closet.  I then wore black opaque tights because it still isn't warm enough on most days to go bare legged even though I would really love to let my white legs get some sun.  I finished off the look with my brown ruched Brian Atwood ankle boots.  I guess Cameron Diaz owns these ankle boots as well and she wore them with jeans.  I will try that next time.  For jewelry I kept it simple as I usually do and wore a necklace that was given to me last year from Jitni.  It has a fabric tie and a green stone flower.  I think it was actually perfect for this outfit and I like how I styled it this time more than the first time I wore it.  We never run out of beautiful places to shoot and fences always make for pretty photos.

R.J. Graziano Long Tassel Pendant Necklace in Multi - Snagged off Gilt.com and worn before here with Of Two Minds fringe leather vest and Miu Miu t-strap wedges

Rick Owens Ribbed Wool Leggings in Black - Snagged off Net-a-Porter.com for $292.80 (Retail: $610)

Nightcap Clothing Motif Vest with Leather Trim in Heather Grey - Snagged off RevolveClothing.com for $115 (Retail: $385)

RVCA Sinner Rib Tank Dress in Vintage White - Worn before here with Of Two Minds vest and Miu Miu patchwork wedges

Hanky Panky Bengal Retro Bralette in Brown - Snagged off Shopbop.com for $38.50 (Retail:$60)

This is one of my casual bohemian outfits.  I lived in this Nightcap Clothing motif vest last summer, throwing it on over all of my tanks.  It has huge pockets and leather fringe.  I can never resist fringe.  You can wear this vest upside down as well if that makes any sense, changing the V of the leather cutout back to point up instead of down.  I will wear it that way next time.  The last time I wore this vest was last summer in Aspen shopping with my friend Christina.  It has some good memories.  Nightcap Clothing has always been one of my favorite brands.  I was surprised that this vest got marked down so much since I find it pretty irresistible. 

I paired it with this RVCA ribbed tank dress that you have seen me wearing before on Fashion Snag.  In fact, last time I wore this I paired it with yet another fringe vest, a leather one by Of Two Minds.  It is a great basic tank dress to have in your closet, but a little bit sheer so I wore my leopard bralette from Hanky Panky underneath.  This little bra was pretty cheap at Shopbop and it is ultra comfy.  You cannot go wrong with Hanky Panky lingerie.  It is all comfortable. 

The Rick Owens ribbed wool leggings were a snag during the Christmas sales at Net-a-Porter.  They are oh so soft and very stretchy.  The seam detailing is amazing.  They are a little sheer so I wore the longer tank dress by RVCA to cover my butt.  Sometimes wool can be itchy, but I guess the wool in Italy is a little different if you know what I mean.  I wore a long tassel necklace by R.J. Graziano that I wore before on the blog with a leather fringed vest.  This necklace is a great costume piece of jewelry that you can mix and match with many things.  I always like to have plenty of fun jewelry to spice up my outfits.  I feel like the fringe on the necklace matches the fringe on the vest and I am okay with that since I like fringe so much.  R.J. Graziano makes some great quality pieces and you can usually find a sale on Gilt so make sure to join. 

Last but certainly not least, I wore my Brian Atwood mauve suede slouchy button back ankle boots.  They are almost a light pink color and very different from my other shoes.  They remind me of something an 80s Barbie might wear.  They have a button in the back so I think you can unbutton it and wear the shoes with a little less slouch.  I will have to try that next time. I snagged these on the Outnet and I wore them before on the blog with Nightcap Clothing lace inset leggings.

Brian Atwood Miri Leather Ankle Boots in Taupe

Elizabeth and James Long Field Trench in Luggage - Snagged off Saks.com for $198 (Retail: $500)

Helmut Lang Linen Open Knit Crop Sweater in White - Worn before here with Giuseppe Zanotti military lace up boots

KAIN Label Pocket Tee in White - Worn before here with Charlotte Olympia margo python pumps

Graham & Spencer Leather Skirt in Bark - Snagged off RevolveClothing.com for $213.50 (Retail: $305)

This bark colored suede skirt by Graham & Spencer is beautiful for fall.  When I originally bought it in June it was way too hot to wear it.  I paired it with a Helmut Lang cropped sweater and Elizabeth and James trench coat.  Rachel Bilson actually owns this Elizabeth and James field trench in the same luggage color.  Don't you love coolspotters.com?  Whenever I am looking at a pair of shoes or item of clothing I check it out to see if I can find celebrity modeling shots.  When I envision fall I think of the shades in this outfit, subdued and earthy.  The skirt actually glows a little in the sunlight.  I like the texture of the skirt and the uneven coloring of the suede.  It adds to its character and charm.  Last fall I pined for these Brian Atwood miri ankle boots on Net-a-Porter and much to my delight they ended up on the Outnet complete with a steep discount.
