Autumn Orange

Sweater: Thrifted
Jacket: Modcloth
Jeans: Target
Boots: Tory Burch

No matter how enticing it seems to live in beautiful California or sunny Florida (where you get perfect warm weather every single day of the year), I still prefer to be in the Midwest. I can’t imagine not being able to experience all four seasons, especially Autumn. I think my brain would be so confused, particularly when Christmas comes around and… wait, what? Why is it so humid out? Plus, going through four seasons just means you get to have more variety of coats and footwear J

In other news and updates, since I’ve been such a blog slacker (I give myself a D- )
1. I’m starting a new job in December! Yay! All that training finally has come to an end. I’m also scared out of my mind to be taking care of patients all by myself, but that’s where Google and Wikipedia come in very handy, right? 

2. Got in a pretty bad car accident last Saturday L It was a head-on collision on the freeway and my car is completely totaled. Although I’m sad about the car, I’m extremely grateful to have walked away from the accident with only some minor bruising. Life is precious

3. Grace is now saying a few more words in Chinese! She can also squirm up one stair and pull herself to her knees. She’s not walking yet, but she sure has come a long way. Just a year ago around this time, she had her last brain surgery. I continue to be amazed how much kids can progress in just one year

Hope you guys are doing well! Will be catching up on all your blog posts soon!

A Rose in the Rough

As Aaron has become more enthusiastic about his new photography hobby, we thought it would be interesting to incorporate some more art and technique into each fashion post.  Originally I had envisioned to shoot this outfit in the middle of a dirty dumpster alley, or in front of some sort of rotted old barn to add a chaotic background, but this backdrop was kind of neat too.
Dress: Old, can't remember where I got it from
Ballet flats: J.Crew
We still have much to learn about photography, but adding bits of art/emotion into these shoots have made it so much more fun. 
Have a great weekend!
Drugged out Grace.
