Outfit details:  David Bowie Glass Spider concert T: Ebay, black cardigan: UO, southwest skirt: thrifted, black tights: Target, socks: F21, Keds, sunglasses: thrifted

A few days ago Grant and I found ourselves at the elementary school right by my house (which happens to be the one I attended when I was little) and snapped a few photos.  This is one of the first posts in recent memory in which I've included lots of pictures of the same outfit (which is actually a blogger pet peeve of mine, I don't need to see 189347 photos of the same thing! Anyone feel the same way?) but no worries since it won't become the norm 'round these parts. 

Speaking of pet peeves, here is another one that maybe you bloggers out there can relate to: when people leave the most generic copy and paste comments on your posts! "Lovely!" "So cute!" "Nice photos!" etc. etc. While I do appreciate comments (who doesn't?) those copy and paste ones always make my eyes roll. If you're not going to read the whole post then at least pick out one specific detail to say something about if you feel inclined to comment at all! Or worse, comments that are like, "wow so cute! hey come and check out my latest post and leave me a comment and follow my blog!!" 

NO!

Anyway, enough ranting for today. I have a YouTube video in the works and tons of updates to my etsy store so stay tuned!

  2. PLAYGROUND!!! Haha...I want to go to one now! But it would be covered in snow so that's probably not a good plan ;) I looove your skirt :D
    HAHA YES! The comment one is a pet peeve of mine too. Or even ones where all they do is leave their blog liink *rolls eyes*

  3. aghhh i have the same pet peeve! i like comments that mention something about what i wrote as well, instead of just "cute!" or whatever.

  6. Bowie! I love your outfit. And I guess I don't mind many photos of the same outfit on blogs if they're showing different angles or details, or if the background changes. But now that you mention it, it does seem unnecessary to have like 6 photos each day of one outfit. Oh yeah, and I like Grant's shoes too.

  7. love all your print mixes and textures in the photos! super excellent. can't wait to see the new stuff in the etsy store!

    xoxo

  8. Cute! Follow my blog...Just joking! I hate those too. I actually don't mind seeing lots of pictures of the same outfit as long as it's not too many, like 10. I like looking at photos in general so I like seeing things from different angles etc.

    Love the outfit. All the prints look awesome together. I love your style in general! You and Grant always look like you have lots of fun together.

    Anthea,

  10. I think the tights make that outfit, which looks crazy fun.

    And yes, I do feel a twinge of irritation when I read obvious self-promoting comments. Lots of people mix Bea and I up, and we always think, "Didn't you READ the post?" Sigh. Usually I try to share something with the writer, at the very least.

  11. First off, great skirt and great pattern mixing... and great location!

    I think I've been guilty of too many photos in the past, but am really making an effort to scale it down. I don't mind in general so long as they're all different angles, etc.

    And yeah, comments, pffff. I got one this morning that said "this is so pretty" She didn't even add an exclamation mark. Talk about damning with faint praise, sheesh. I've actually decided that I'm not replying to any comment that is clearly formulaic; I have better things to do with my time. Anyway, my rant is over now, too.
    P.S. I think the most annoying one I got though was: "I'm new to Blogger. FOLLOW ME."

  14. Definitely following you now; great outfit (the skirt is really cute with those tights)! It also irritates me when people try to promote their giveaways on my blog. :/

    ReplyDelete
  15. I hate those comments too...when its obvious that the person just comments to drive more traffic to their blog.
    But on the positive side, your outfit is charming, and I love the winter glow in the photographs.

  16. hehe. I have everyone thinking I'm a natural redhead because my brothers are natural redheads, so it is in my blood. I can see slightly how I would look like Satine! I know what you mean about the usual comments. To me, I get happy having any comment at all and think it is nice to even receive something, since they didn't have to leave one at all. I got my first spam comment today though which was annoying. I try to leave bulkier comments but sometimes all I can figure to say is "I love this outfit" or something. . .but I have never copied or pasted my comments around. Anyway I do love your outfit here, especially your shirt. You look like you had fun hanging out at the elementary school there.

  17. Cute pics, follow me?

    Haha just kidding, they are nice photos though I still love going to playgrounds. I just want to go on the swings now!

  18. Nice pictures, and nice outfits on both of you! I love David Bowie. I also feel a bit self conscious leaving you a comment now, but I'm not a comment-and-run type. That irriates me too.

  19. Love the photos, great sunglasses.

  20. I love Your t-shirt and a pantyhose.

    I so envy about the weather. :))))

    I wonder how You looked when You was a kid. Maybe You will put some photos? :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. wow so cute ;)

    (I have no restraint) hehe
    I quite like seing a few different shots of an outfit as long as they're not all shot at the same distance and angle. I usually post 3 - 5 in an effort to combat my fear of repetition LOL

    Occasionally I do leave short little comments (especially with all picture posts) and I don't mind getting those myself provided they're not followed by a URL. *roll eyes*

    Love your skirt and tights - looking perfectly playful for the playground :D

  22. AHAH!! you're just the greatest. Whenever I wear the same outfit on different days and take a better picture the second time, I want to reblog the same outfit especially if its current favourite. And with the comments of follow me and I'll follow you back is so annoying cause thats when you know they're not interested on your blog, they're interested on followers.

    ok, southern california. My boyfriend, sister and I are planning to take a long drive down to LA with stops at Sacramento for my friends debut and San Fran sometime in June. Its would just be great to know someone from the area to tell us where the hot spots are when the time comes.

    love

  24. The multiple photos don't annoy me (it gives me time to let the outfit "sink in" haha) but i am NOT a fan of the copy & paste comments or the blog advertising. Ick. They annoy me so much. I do love this outfit. The Bowie tee rocks & looks so cool with that skirt.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The bright colors in this outfit are PERFECT on you! I love how you put things together I normally wouldn't dream of and make it look like an outfit out of a magazine. :)

    I think it is sweet you took photos at your old elementary school. I wish I lived by my old school. :P

    And yeahhh the comments that bother me the most are: "nice post, come check out my blog and leave a comment and follow at XXX.blogspot.com! KISSES!" I call them blogbots. Grrr.

  26. cute

    I'm hosting a giveaway on....

    Just kidding (you are going to get this joke far to much). I totally agree though! Especially with the follow me bit! It always comes across as rude to me.

    I do like how you have put so many photos up I can understand why you would get annoyed about it, but I love seeing the details of outfits and it from different angles (so I can sew a recreate it sometimes!)

    I love that skirt!! The whole outfit is perfect actually!

  29. I know what you mean about multiple outfit photos, and, I am guilty as charged. I'm trying to change things up some, get creative? Your photos aren't of the same genre though, they're more about the moment than the outfit. I can totally appreciate that.

    By the way, that outfit is bitchin'! I love pairing cool tees with a funky printed skirt and a cardigan. It's such an easy combination, but I can never tire of it!

    Oh, you're lovely!

  32. you resemble katy perry on your first photo! and i love how fun and edgy your outfit looks, you look like you're having a great time! I can relate to the rant, ;))

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ha! I have slowly come to the realization that only 5% of people read what I write - which makes it fun to leave little subliminal messages or poke fun of things without even causing so much as a teeny tiny stir.

    "Follow my blog and I will follow you!" NO THANKS!

What's up?

*Had to turn word verification on (even though I personally hate it). I've been getting too many weird spambot comments lately :(
