New heights in fashion

First of all I feel like I should explain that these photos were taken nearly two weeks ago—it is certainly not warm enough here this week to warrant a sweater and shorts combo!

Second, I'd like to excitedly point out that my friend Chris ended up staying put here in Bham instead of hightailing it out to Cali for a few months, so I get to reap the benefits of having an amazing photographer who's eager to shoot pretty often.

One of my fav things about shooting with Chris is that we will spend a solid two hours just hitting spots all over downtown to get some great backdrops. I mean, we went to the museum, the park, the theatre district and even a random parking deck.

I also love that he will make me climb up ridiculous heights and give me a "boost" when I need it because, ya know, I am wearing 5 inch heels. Yeah, definitely not something I would do on my own, but he's never wrong. The shot is always amazing and it's always worth the risky climb—even being on a ledge at 8 stories or so high (hence the blog post title). Just scroll down, you'll see what I mean!

Oh and I'll go ahead and apologize for the insane amount of photos. But there were just so many good ones, I couldn't make decisions on which ones to cut!

Okay, here's the cheapskate outfit breakdown:

1. Sweater, H&M ($19.95)
2. Shorts, c/o Sugarlips
3. Heels, Charlotte Russe ($15.00)
4. Vintage purse, gifted/passed down (thanks mom!)
5. Sunglasses, Venice Beach ($7.50)
6. Turquoise ring, gifted (thanks mom!)
7. Square ring, Brooklyn Flea ($5.00)
8. Love ring, gifted (thanks Em!)
9. Dainty ring, gifted/passed down
10. Bar earrings, gifted (thanks Joy!)

Total: Under $50.00
