Turf's Up

4.22.2012



Mint Designs coat (last worn here),
Thrifted blouse, 
Uniqlo skinny jeans (similar style here), 
14th and Union suede booties, 
Forever 21 chain necklace, 
Monoprix fringe bag.  

One day, while crossing under the bridge to get to Marlow & Sons (featured in another outing here), Lauren and I stumbled across this wall that was covered top to bottom in astroturf. The photographer geek in me couldn't wait to see how the bright green texture would pop against Lauren's sleek, monochromatic look.

Thankful that I had my camera on me, we immediately stopped to shoot, which required me to stand in the middle of the street to get any good pics. I'm pretty sure in the last shot Lauren has just finished yelling at me to move out of the way of a bus.

xx, M
