What I Wore: Shirt (New York and Company), Necklace (Popbasic), Bracelets (Popbasic and New York and Company; Similar Here), Shoes (Old Navy), Skirt (Vintage; Similar Here), Belt (Vintage; Similar Here)


If you've read Never Fully Dressed at all before, you've probably noticed the mountains in the background of almost all our photo shoots, but I'm not sure I've ever mentioned that we are literally right next to those mountains. In fact, we drive through a canyon to get to our most frequently used photo shoot location, The Buffalo Bill Reservoir. Well, for a change of pace, we didn't make it all the way out of the canyon and instead are showing off some of the neat geological features present in the area with these canyon walls. I love how geology like this can tell a story of a place. The sharply rising juts of stone telling where friction pushed up abruptly, the painted lines showing where water rose too, and all that. In fact, for a long time, the arid desert I called home was underwater! All the kids around here learn that early one because taking fossil hunting trips is one of the big parts of the local elementary kid life.

Also in this photoshoot would be... an outfit (Surprise, surprise I know. Well, it IS a fashion blog)! This look is actually quite similar to one I've shown off before, but I feel the accessories lend it an entirely different feeling.As usual, I'm wearing a lot of Popbasic items. Getting addicted to them! Despite being in a skirt and with stacks of jewelry on, this seems somehow rugged to me, matching the backdrop perfectly. What are your favorite accessories to be wearing of late? A favorite necklace or a belt you adore? Anyone wearing hats?

  3. lovely textile of that skirt! i think it's that material that gives a slightly rugged look. i also like all your accessories, how they're unique but not super bright, works great w/ the look. also, how cool is that about the geology! sounds like you had such a cool childhood getting to look for fossils in school. what an awesome place to have right by your house.

  10. That 3rd photo down!!! Gah. You really live amongst such beauty Kristian. Though I live at the base of one of the mountain ranges in PA - these mountains are soooo different and much more grand than ours.

    Again - love this vintagey outfit with the full skirt - it's so perfectly you. Like a modern Audrey Hepburn :-)

    1. The Rockies definitely have a much more rugged vibe than other mountains I've seen.

      And thank you for that compliment. That made my day!

    You always do belts so well.

  12. I think I have commented on this skirt before- I love it! Seems like you could match it with a lot of colors. I love seeing the nature pictures mixed in with your outfits! They are gorgeous!! Here's a cool story about Buffalo Bill- one of my best friends back home is a relative of his in some way, they have his old piano in their house!

  14. I'm floored by how beautiful that skirt is!! So pretty :) gotta love vintage!

    I miss living by mountains, we were very close in southern california growing up and when I lived in Las Vegas too. In SF, not so much cause we're by the ocean, although there are some beautiful hills!

  16. I love the backdrops of all your photos. You live in such a beautiful and interesting area! That skirt is absolutely gorgeous. I love the texture too, what a great vintage find! I don't know why I'm not much of an accessories person, I guess it's because I can't wear any jewelry at work. But if I had to pick one I would say that I love hats :)

    1. Well, not being able to wear accessories to work, I can totally see why you wouldn't be into them as much.

  17. This skirt is gorgeous! I love this location too. But then again, all of the locations you use are stunning! And I really need to get my hands on some Popbasic pieces one these days. They're all so cute.
