Even though I spend the majority of my time inside, almost all of my photos are taken outdoors. There are two reasons for this: 1) My house has a "lived-in look", which euphemistically means "random junk everywhere". I think piles of paper grow from our coffee tables. 2) I have yet to figure out how to cope with lower lighting. Despite all the #strugglin, I like today's self-portraits. It's easy to clear a small space on the couch, so my need for un-busy backgrounds remains unbothered. Besides, comfy furniture is my natural habitat.
My mom thrifted this cardigan for me--she always keeps an eye out for cheap cashmere. The soft cream color and subtly scalloped blue trim feel very demure to me. My dress gives the outfit some fey playfulness, with its splatters of faux tie-dye purple. I didn't plan this combination, but perhaps I can still congratulate my subconscious; I quite enjoy the ensemble.
