Ten for Ten; It's a Strike!

What I Wore: Bowling Shoes (Sunset Bowling Rentals!), Tights (old), Skirt (Pin-up Girl Clothing), Shirt (Jessi of Haircut and General Attitude), Pearls (My Grandmother)

Anyone else think it is funny how a strike is a good thing in bowling and has a completely different semantic for just about everything else? No? Just me? Alright then.

This is Kristian of Never Fully Dressed, and when I saw Jessi of Haircut and General Attitude's shirt, I thought- it looks like a good shirt to bowl in. A certain retro vibe maybe, who knows, but it was a silly thought anyway. Even if bowling shoes are kind of fun looking. Who'd take photos bowling? It is way too dark inside!

Who indeed? It was time to take the blog(s) on a field trip (er, even more of a field trip than usual, I mean, since you may have noticed NFD often has shots of the great outdoors). The Boy was very paitence and willing to get out a camera in front of who-knows-who-all and snap my photo. The photos turned out better than our bowling scores (Did either of us even crack 100 points?), but the improtu-date/photo session turned out to be great fun. And look! There was even a pink bowling ball for girly me.

  1. They really are bright shots for a bowling alley. Usually they are all neon lit. Loving the action shot at the end!
    I love the shirt, cause I'm a sucker for anything that I could pretend to be Sailor Moon in! :)

    1. As for the light...that's the magic of Lightroom :)

      Ah! I used to love Sailor Moon when I was a kid. Now I'm all smiling due to remembering. Thanks!

  3. Oh my goodness, I love you and I love this. You're way too adorable in this outfit and I'm pretty sure I've never seen someone rock bowling shoes so well. You know you've got a winner when he's willing to snap outfit photos in a bowling alley. ;)

    1. Thanks! Yeah, he's definitely a keeper since he is so willing to take photos everywhere (though part of his job is taking photos at public events, so it helps he's used to it!)

  8. I've never thought about the many uses for the word strike. I do know that I stink at bowling though.
