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?

    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!

    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 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!

    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

    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 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.

  17. 8 May 2012 / 06:33

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

    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!

    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!

  21. 8 May 2012 / 15:35

    Love the way you mixed patterns! xo

  22. 8 May 2012 / 16:44

    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™‚

  23. 8 May 2012 / 17:52

    Inderdaad zeer creepy! Mooie kleurencombinatie :).

  24. 8 May 2012 / 17:53

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

  25. 8 May 2012 / 18:02

    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™‚
