Outfit: Say It with Flowers


Just try and guess where the title of this post came from!




After a lazy afternoon spent wandering the farmer’s market in Madison with my boyfriend, I decided to try and shoot that night.  It was Saturday, which is usually the worst day for pictures–it’s the most popular night for weddings, so you can bet that all my favorite spots were in use.  But I had plenty of time on my hands to explore someplace a little unconventional, and I remembered a cool wall in the town where I used to live.  I shot there once before, but it was before I really knew how to work my camera, so I wanted to try it out again.

Well, unlike last time, when the big Say It with Flowers wall loomed over nothing but an empty lot, this time there was a riot of color!  The flower shop on the other side of the wall had left out all of its flowers, so I spent a good hour snapping here and there among all the blooms and colors.  I’m surprised there were so many pots of flowers out–maybe it’s that small-town mentality that people won’t just up and steal your stuff?

In any case, I’m happy with my luck.  I’ve been wearing a lot of black and white lately, so it’s been great to have some pretty backgrounds to set off my outfits.  I have one more outfit idea with the B&W theme, and after that, I think I’ll be ready to blend in with a setting like this!
