Byways Cafe

Here'e a fun photoshoot with Light and Shadow at Byways Cafe. A cute kitschy place with retro decor and little roadtrip trinkets. Too bad they only let us take a few pictures :( 

But, perfect place for my new red acorn outfit right? I really wish I had the necklace sellers info so I could show her these, she loved that I had a matching sweater for it, and gave me such a deal the least I can do is show her these two are happy together!

Emilia Cross said...

WOW!!! you look SO GORGEOUS in these pics - that combination of bright red & purple REALLY suits your hair, eyes & skin... so beautiful!! i'm especially in love with the way you tied your head scarf - how did you do it? is that a certain technique i can google? i have sooo many vintage scarfs but am terrible at tying them! xoxo

I just love that last shot. Well, all of them are adorable! You have an amazing sense of style.

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

OMG you look AMAZING! There is nothing about these photos I am not smitten with.

Your vintage styling is second to none.

You are anaturally pretty girl but they way you present yourself makes you a total knockout.

This shoot has made my day. You are going on my (non-celebrity) style icon list.

You are so beautyfull... to me!
The photos are great. I love to visit your blog ♥ It ´s a walk in another time

Have a nice weekend! Elke

Ashley Marie said...

First of all: Adorable.

Second: Can you do a tutorial on the faux bangs? I've seen instructions elsewhere, but I like your hair tutorials best! Also, I like the way yours look better than most others I have seen ~ they look more real, not so bumped out and exaggerated :)

Paperdoll said...

Such a beautiful sweater, and an excellent choice of seting too!

Hannah said...

Looks like an editorial spread, great photography and great model ;)
Me too I was wondering about the faux bangs, or could you recommend a tutorial?

Johanna Öst said...

So beautiful! Perfect colours!

Allegra Beba said...

Oh my God! *o*
I love you so much! YOu are so beautiful!!!

Anushka said...

i love the colour photos, especially the ones which are more 'au natural' (less posed), they look like stills from a 50s/60s hitchcock film, like you've just stopped off at a roadside motel for coffee (but unbeknown to you, you're being chased!)

tackyblueeyeshadow said...

You look absolutely beautiful! Love the photos. x

Alexandriaweb said...

Viju said...

Gemma V said...

What a gorgeous outfit. The accessories really pull it all together and I LOVE the headscarf - I've never been able to make mine look anywhere near as good as that!

Heather said...

These photos are fantastic! It all looks so seamlessly 'of the era.' and your acorn sweater is adorable!

I love these little cafes and am happy my little town off rt.66 still has a few. We have one called 'Happy Burger" that's over 50 years old. When I was a kid an MacDonalds moved in right next door to it, you'd think it would have killed it. Well, its still there and the MadDonalds moved across town! Yay for cool little places :)

Julia said...

Why did they only let you take a couple of pictures? I hate it when places get all weird like that. Ugh.

VintageDanielle said...

So adorable! Love everything, the lipstick, headscarf,sweater, and the cute shoes with the socks

Gabby said...

This outfit is too fabulous for words. I love how everything matches so perfectly from your scarf to your bakelite bracelets to the sweater and necklace combo. You always do it right!

Lady Danburry said...

I always love your shoes and socks.

MelBell said...

Kristian said...

You always find such perfect places to shoot that your photos look like a photoshoot or a time machine taking us back to a delicious moment of fashion excellence :)

I *adore* that sweater!

mary van note said...

this outfit is PERFECT!
Is the sweater a Catalina sweater? Because it looks similar to the Catalina sweater of mine: http://maryvannote.com/blog/2011/12/22/3-outfits-til-christmas/
