Pillars...


The Location:

Prospect Park is indeed Brooklyn's most underrated park - in my opinion.  There are so many aspects to visit but I have to say my favorite has been the "Pillars".  {Thats my unofficial name for them!} - I came across them several times in passing but I was convinced I needed to shoot here after jogging one morning with a good friend of mine.  They have so much charm and sophistication - I couldn't find any place better to shoot my thrifted tribal print sweater skirt.

The Skirt:

If you recall, I mentioned this skirt a little while back {Here}.  One of my thrifted treasures I found while visiting my family in Virginia.  With a little nipping and tucking, I was able to re-invent this skirt.  I love the pattern and how it fits after the few alterations... I know the possibilities for styling it in my mind are endless - so while the weather was warm enough - I decided to squeeze in a post-summer look.
