i heart shopping... usually

Jake and I are all set to take our engagement photos on Sunday with our photographer, the very talented Dean Thorsen. Since we set the date, I have been shopping around for something to wear. I do love to shop, when I have nothing to buy. When I actually need something and I don't know what I am looking for, I get really flustered.

I have my fingers crossed for bright sun and fall leaves. We are taking our photos at the beautiful Morton Arboretum and I hope to do some romping around in trees, so hopefully the leaves will cooperate. We picked this date because Jake and I love fall and we thought it might be fun to capture the beautiful fall Chicago weather while it lasts- snow is just around the corner.

So that got me looking for "fall clothes," whatever that means. I found this jacket at my favorite store:

Is it weird to wear a coat with fall leaves on it when you are taking pictures with fall leaves? As much as I love this coat, I kinda thought so. I spent over an hour in Anthropologie and walked out with two shirts and a sweater and I am not excited about any of it. I like them for going to class or dinner with Jake, but I feel like I will be looking at these photos for the rest of my life. If I say, "gee, if I had only decided to wear something else" every time I look, I will not be happy.

Anyway, back to the drawing board. I have come to realize that I don't even know where else to shop. Any good suggestions?

In the meantime, here are some of my favorite engagement photos from Dean... enjoy!

Yes... Maisy is coming!

Sexy, huh?
