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.

Monica from Jitni sent me this gorgeous green flower necklace.  Thank you Monica!  I love the pearl tips and the green ribbon tie.  It is the perfect color for me and so well made.  If you click on the link to Jitni above it will take you to the page where you can buy one for yourself if you like it.  I will definitely be wearing this is many more outfits and I think it is the best necklace for a great beach vacation.  I paired it with my Alice + Olivia butterfly silk shorts in green.  I wanted these on Shopbop for the longest time and I snagged them in my size as soon as they got marked down.  They were better than I expected.  All I want to wear with my shorts and pants are Equipment silk blouses.  These shirts are perfect for any event.  I pulled out a pair of L.A.M.B. sandals that I lost in the back of my closet.  These shoes are a great color to pair with green instead of the usual black.
