Coloring Outside of the Lines

This sweater totally reminds me of crayons and preschool. 
I love the hearts and stars!
It's like someone at Urban Outfitters decided that Dawnya needed the perfect sweater.
Ok.. ok...I know this sweater isn't thrifted. 
BUT...I bought it in 2005...so...it's PRACTICALLY vintage. Back then I didn't know any better and I used to pay FULL PRICE for things. 
That's crazy talk... I know!
So, I know I said my patio pictures days were over...
but A.B. wasn't here and I had to get to work!
I guess that makes me a liar liar pants on fire. ;)

Gone With the Wind

Yes, one of my favorite movies! And I'm not even going to start talking about the Gone With the Wind themed party I fantasize about having. The only problem is that the entire guest list would consist of my friends Cindy, Jenny and myself.
(They too have excellent taste in movies)
But that's not what this post is about. 

I jaunted off to Las Vegas for the weekend for Shana's birthday party. 
When I got there, I was greeted with INSANE WIND!!!!
A.B. and I decided to brave the tornado and take a stab at some blog pics. 
The location of choice was outside of an H&M over at Town Square. 
Only fitting considering my H&M hat matches the H&M wall. :)

The wind was ca-razy but it made for a fun photo shoot. :) 
Thanks A.B.!

Ok...let's go! Time to scour the alleys looking for photo ops! :)
A.B. and I had fun today...especially when I found a cool dumpster!
Yep...a dumpster.
But look how PRETTY it is!

Haha...my reaction when I was told to "look up". :)

I really like this outfit. I was proud this morning when I questioned whether or not it was "okay" for me to wear a denim jacket with my black skinny jeans.
I simply said...it IS okay...because I say it is. :)
Well played.

The Cat's Meow

I've gotta say...I am LOVING what Belmont Shore has to offer. Umm..it's like this city knew about my blog and said "Hey Dawnya...take a picture in front of ME!"
Don't mind if I do.
This fantastic kitty painting is just randomly posted on a wall in an alley down the way a bit from A.B.'s place.
Wow....where's my camera??????


One cool thing I can say about my outfit is that aside from my tights, it's completely thrifted.
That's kinda fun.
Not all of my pictures were winners...but they were all fun to do (except the ones where I looked fat and made A.B. delete them).
As long as my craziness doesn't scare him off...I think this is going to all work out just fine. ;)

All Smiles

Today was the 2nd day A.B. (Amazing Boyfriend) shot my photos. I think I'm still getting used to it because there's an element of shyness still...hence the constant stream of smiles throughout the whole thing.

I guess there are worse things to complain about. :)

I have to admit....I'm not excited about this outfit. It was pretty much throw together and it's not one of my favorites by a long shot.
But...I was armed with a camera and the show must go on!

Good thing smiling's my favorite. :)

Putting the color inside of my world....

I think my patio photo days are over. Would you like to know why?
A.B. (Amazing Boyfriend) has now become my photographer!
Oh yes..it's true.

This. Is. Serious.

Haha...one of the many cool things about A.B. is that he lives in Belmont Shore (Long Beach- if you aren't familiar.)
We had a lot of fun today finding little spots to take pics in.

For my outfit, I went for sort of a rocker look (as "rocker" as I can get) by wearing this old leather jacket that I forgot I had.
I think I've had it since college....
which...umm...was like....2 years ago....
*sigh* I wish.

Having A.B. take my pics was pretty fun....even if I did end up with some like this one. Haha...

I have to say it....this was A LOT of fun today.

I think I'll keep him.
