The last Summer day.

It is officially fall and summer has left us. One of my favorite places to go is the Arboretum and I just didn't have enough time this summer to enjoy it. The weather as of right now is rainy but the last few weeks have been lovely. Gorgeous weather with a bright sun. When I go to take photos at the Arboretum, I feel like its a rather special occasion, so I try to pick an outfit that is something I normally wouldn't wear out and about. I love getting dressed up in my vintage lounge wear. Now the Arboretum is really big, deciding on a spot is step one. Then its a matter of lighting, I must have taken 20 photos before I found good lighting. If you're going to be somewhere lovely, you might as well look like it.

Where I was, is where they keep all the plants that grow on vines. There are usually hops growing, its really a pretty place to sit and have lunch and a cold drink.

Today I bring you great news. I will finally be moving forward in my fashion career and leaving the resale world behind, to go be Diesel's new visual merchandiser! I can not tell you all enough how excited and proud of myself I am. This is a huge step forward for me. I have always worked in resale/vintage shops and to be working with such a desirable label will be exciting and extremely rewarding. I can not wait to start my new job and start moving forward to better things.

Xoxo!

Wow that third picture down is just beautiful!! You look great, Leigh. I also am a huge fan of jumping photos. :) And that place is just the most perfect setting for outfit photos.
