au neutral

I have been anxious to take photos in the creek at my favorite little photo place and hopping around from rock to rock really just put a smile on my face. I love acting like a kid sometime, especially after a long day at work. This outfit is quite different for me - I usually feel a need for a pop of color in outfits but today I stuck with neutrals and honestly, I love it. I think I want to experiment more with neutrals this fall.

I'm in love with this tissue thin Hello Kitty tee my mom got me for Christmas last year. I don't wear it often enough for the blog. I haven't worn it since December here.

  1. What a gorgeous place to take pictures! I bet it's extra pretty when all of the leaves start changing! And I LOVE those target loafers. I've been meaning to get a pair for the longest time. I'm thinking the red or the mint color!

  2. Woooow, that place is awesome. I wish I had a place like that to take the pictures. I think your backround is perfect for this outfit. Lovely grey colours and I love that second pic!

  8. I think the Hello Kitty top is really cute. I love your outfit and think that creek is gorgeous too! No wonder why you'd want so many photos by it! Your rings are really cute.

  9. One of the things I've discovered to be such an unexpected benefit of blogging is that I get out and enjoy the little bits of natural around me more. Acting like a kid, indeed!

    Also this all neutral-look seems very fall like.

  14. That place looks amazing! I can see why you want to hang out there.

    The photo of your face with the light catching it is amazing. YOU really pop when you were all neutrals.

  28. I can't get enough of this location. Where do you find places like these locally? I've never ventured outside my yard...as of yet. /tooshy

    I actually just bought a pair of tights off ModCloth back when there were no reviews (aka a few days ago) and while waiting for them to arrive, I checked and saw that there was one review -- it was from you! I'm secretly waiting for you to wear 'em on here...oops, blew my secret!

  29. Lawl, in the above comment I wrote 'tooshy' instead of 'too shy' and it looks like I'm referring to my bum or something.

  30. I have wanted that knot ring for years and still have yet to purchase it! I absolutely love it. You look beautiful.

  31. The background is so pretty. It looks like a great spot.

  32. Oh, what a gorgeous neutral look! I tend to always go for color too, so this is inspiring me to go in another direction. I especially love your lovely necklace! Looks great with this.

  33. Such beautiful photos! I love your necklace <3

  34. I've been feeling the same urge lately too but I have next to none as far as neutrals go in my closet and I hardly even know where to start to construct a neutral outfit. Love this Katherine! Definitely inspiring as sometimes I feel like neutrals can be dull or boring but this is anything but that. The lighting in that fourth photo down is ooh la la gorgeous too! xo Marisa

  35. This is definitely a different color scheme for you but it looks great :). I love your location of these photos too. So very pretty Katherine!

  36. I love the creek too! One bummer though, I always end up falling at least knee deep somehow in the water.

    These photos are lovely, and I feel you on the neutral thing...it's because of the season's changing or something haha :]
