Neutral Central

Instead of going for another rambling story or getting into one more of my theories, I decided to try and keep it light for this post. These pictures were taken a few weekends ago when I met up with Veronika for breakfast. I usually let the things I choose to wear speak for themselves but since I have nothing else to say right now, I guess I'll have to do it for them. I've been wearing these jeans every weekend since I got them. They have a bit of stretch which makes them extra comfortable to wiggle into. I liked the idea of going tone on tone so I wore my favorite taupe suede boots to keep the bottom half in the same color family. 
The ever so lovely Lisa of Tree & Kimball surprised me with these earrings to go along with my latest purchase from her. They are so feminine and flirty. Every time I look at them on my dresser I think about how I have to wear them on a date sometime soon. And based on yesterday's post, if it comes down to it, I'll show them off to the city on a date with myself.

I'm very aware of the fact that I don't make it the easiest to leave comments here with all the long winded posts. I truly appreciate everyone that I do get because I know that as much time as it takes me to write everything out, you put just as much effort into each of your comments back to me. There are a few reasons I don't generally like to go on and on about what I'm wearing. I don't dress overly complicated, I don't make any extravagant purchases, and what I'm wearing usually ends up being more of a representation of my style than a commentary on or reproduction of current fashion trends. 
Taking pictures of what I wear winds up being a way to share what I did, what I'm thinking, or where I went. That said, if you haven't said hello yet because you don't always relate to what I'm writing about, then now is your chance!

Just for fun, I'm linking back to two other posts where I took pictures in the park. You'd think that after blogging for a year and living in the city for over two I'd have a few more pictures to share from the biggest park in New York City. I was in the park this fall when I got the chance to meet so many lovely blogging ladies. About a year ago I took a walk up to the park when a lot of things looked much different. I promise I go to the park more often than that, I just don't always take pictures when I'm there!

Huge thank you to Veronika for taking these photos for me. It was so nice to be able to snap off a few rather than having to lug out my tripod for the weekend. I'd also like to take a moment to notice how well these pictures match the color scheme here. Fun stuff. 
Only a few more days to get your entries in for the Giveaway! Winners will be posted on Friday, the 22nd.

I totally appreciate the fact that you don't only write about your clothes. Your blog is a great way for me to live vicariously through you, since I'm not a big traveler or a city girl.

And speaking of clothes, I really love the color of those jeans with the taupe. What a great color scheme you've got going on!

Rebecca said...

That picture of you laughing on the rock? I want to print it out, frame it and put it on my bedside table.

You look so clean and fresh. So fresh so clean :) Only you could pull of this simplicity and rock it all at the same time.

Oh my gosh, Morgan, that picture of you as a child is so cute!

You look fantastic in this ensemble. The white shirt and the green belt are gorgeous. The earrings are incredible. You are so lucky to be able to enjoy Central Park!

Happy Birthday by the way. I hope you have taken the day off work, no one should have to work on their birthday. Enjoy today and the rest of the year. You deserve good things :)

Heck yes Central Park photos!! I discovered your blog from the time you visited the renegade blogger meet up and have been a fangirl ever since! :) This outfit is lovely, I love how you keep it neutral, and I love your approach to 'style blogging' and your writing.

Your blog is so refreshing and different Morgan, and make me feel like an adult and that I don't have my shit together....

but I learn a lot from you :)
