Creepy things happen…

H&M skirt, T and shoes, We cardigan
Once upon a time my friend K and I went out to test our beloved cameras. She was curious about my new lense, and I let her test it in exchange for outfit photos. Cause that’s what friends do. We went to the back of a parkinglot, near the railroad tracks. I have been wanting to take pictures here for a long time. Turns out, everything your parents tell you about areas around railroad tracks is true. In the middle of our session this silver car turned up on the parking lot. No biggie, people were driving on and off the whole time but this car drove aaaaall the way to the back end, where we were. It approached at rapid speed (hello, speed limit of 10!?), the dude in it started clapping his hands, made a U-turn and drove back off. He didn’t even park his car. What the?? Weird!! Guess I won’t be coming back to this spot, haha. The pictures turned out great though, so thank you K for taking these and saving my blogging ass! I owe you. Big time, I suppose.

This weekend was jampacked with fun. Work on Saturday, 2 essays to finish and some school books to read on Sunday. Are you feeling the sarcasm? haha. On saturday night though, we went on a spontaneous trip to the movies and saw The Avengers. It was awesome! I loved it. Have you guys seen it? I feel a need to (re-)watch all the superhero movies now! Movie marathon, anyone?

  • nice skirt…and i like your past weekend,ehe

  • Ugh, I hate it when that kind of stuff happens. Street Harassment is just not okay.

    But you did look super cute and I can see why you would want to have such a pretty stone road as your backdrop.

    I saw the avengers as well, it was so much fun!

  • okay, this sounds really weird… glad to here that nothing "happened" and that you weren't alone there! the photos are really great though, but I wouldn't return to this place either… and i love your flower skirt!

  • Haha I am feeling the sarcasm πŸ™‚ I am in the same situation!
    Btw darling,you are so pretty! I love your outfit!

  • YIkes lady – be careful! My weekend was pretty much like yours. Lovely outfit, and the yellow cardi is so pretty against the grey sky. What lens are you shooting with, by the way?

  • Oh my that must be frightening! Really….

  • Oh girl. My fiance made me get some pepper spray for all the creepers I run into taking my pictures. Watch your back! Great photos, though, I agree. And your floral skirt with the striped top is too cute. Love the yellow cardi too!

  • The color combination is great! That yellow look great with your hair color πŸ™‚


  • Oooh, scary! Glad he didn't stop and get out — that would have been worse!

    But at least you look great. Love the pattern mixing.

  • Love this combo on you. That skirt & shirt are just to cute.
    As for the weirdo in the car, that is super creepy. Ugh.

  • Love your pattern mixing, and that cardi is adorable!

    I too, loved The Avengers! We've been trying to find all our other movies to watch as well!

  • Super cute look! I love the floral print skirt.
    Weird people do weird things… :S I guess you gotta not think about it! hahah

  • Floral and stripes and yellow…can't get much cuter!

  • great skir honey, i really love this look πŸ˜›


  • The stripes and florals look so luscious!

  • Love that outfit and your location is perfect (minus the creeper!)

  • Nikki this outfit is so lovely. And of course friends are for taking outfit photos. Why else do you keep them around??


  • What a weirdo! At least you weren't alone! But nice outfit anyway and you got some great pictures!! Love the mix of prints!

  • Gorgeous, I love the mixing of patterns! Thanks for the comment on my blog, following you, hope you follow back πŸ™‚

    I haven't seen The Avengers but I heard it was awesome.

    xo, Megan

  • I still need to see The Avengers too. And watch all the movies I should have seen before it as well.
    Also, your outfit is cute! The mixed prints look great and I'm in love with the color of your cardigan.

  • haha funny story but a little scary…love the stripes with the floral print.

    You look adorable! Love the floral/stripe combination.

  • Silver car sounds scary! Love your outfit though, like the pattern mixing with the stripes and florals πŸ™‚

  • what camera did you get?The pictures are great πŸ™‚
    I wanna get one too but I have no idea which one to choose.Any ideas?


  • Love the stripes and floral together! I hate when weirdos approach while taking outfit photos, and it's even more awkward when you're alone with a tripod πŸ˜€

    I'm excited to see The Avengers!

  • That sounds so scary! What in the world?!? People can be so odd…

    And yes, to the movie marathon! I think I need one of those pretty badly right about now πŸ™‚

    Hope the end of your school year goes great, and your summer goes even better!


  • I like the yellow cardi! I have been on the fence about buying a short sleeve cardi, but this looks nice on you. Arun is my photographer, and he has huge biceps, so I don't have to worry about creepy cars. Keep safe!

  • Love the way you mixed patterns! xo

  • My god, that must have been scary! I'm sure you're glad he didn't end up parking and getting out!

    Lovely outfit by the way, very you! πŸ™‚

  • Inderdaad zeer creepy! Mooie kleurencombinatie :).

  • Nikki, you are too, too cute! I love that entire outfit, ESPECIALLY the skirt! Have a wonderful week! xo

  • Ahh I hate creepers who watch outfit pics! LOVE your pattern mixing Nikki! That skirt is gorgeous, and really love the yellow cardi with it πŸ™‚

    The Other Side of Gray
