idee_geniale 's Thoughts:

I really thought that I was dressed appropriately for the weather today, kinda overcast, a little rainy. So I wore my jeans with this weird cropped blouse, but made it up with cute shoes and topped it off with a headband. Man, was I ever wrong! As soon as we stepped outside it was pooring rain. So after a brief little photo session with me covered under our awning and my boyfriend huddled under his rain jacket snapping the pics, I quickly ran back inside to change into socks and boots, add another jacket, and grab an umbrella.

We went to one of our fave spots in Brooklyn, for $10 all you can drink mimosas and brunch (of course), then we headed to the craft market just down the street. Thank god everything was fairly close to each other so we didn’t get totally rained on.

As for my outfit: I found this weird little cropped blouse at Beacon’s closet. It’s totally handmade ( I can tell by the stitches and hems) I’m not sure what it was that made me buy it, maybe because i thought it was so odd looking??

I’m also loving the headband look with my new fringe (sorry if I keep on mentioning it, i’ll get over it soon enough just bear with me). I know some of you might be over that whole headband Nicole Richie thing but I think this outfit would be lost without it. I just took a scarf and added a simple belt buckle, then tied it in the back.

I think my guy is really getting into this photographer thing. Today while taking the pics he was all: “Move to the left, show me your purse!”. What a sweetheart! Oh and he was also asking for a little recognition for taking the pic of my last post that made the “editor’s pick” hehe.

Thank you everyone for leaving me such nice comments and encouraging me to try different things that might not be the norm. I feel so much more confident in putting outfits together getting such great feedback from fellow chictopians that have such great style!! You all rock!

It's a square shaped scarf and you can't see it but where it ties together is in the back of my head.

I agree that the headband finishes off the outfit. And the story behind that cropped jacket is great. Its adorable and extremely quirky! Your boyfriend is getting the photographer thing down. The photos are all fabulous!! :)

I love that little cropped jacket thingy....leave it to Beacon's Closet to have the off-beat piece that totally works! The headband is such a great idea too. Oh, and I could only wish my BF was willing to take pics, instead he likes to hangout on the sidelines and make fun of me by saying things like "hey Chictopians, what do you think of my jodhpurs??" You have a very nice BF obviously :)

The best thing about Beacon's is that I only buy stuff with store credit as I'm always bringing in random clothes that i've only worn a few times but already get sick of. So its basically like free clothes exchange!! (and I get weird ass jacket thingy's too..LOL)
