Say Cheese!

I follow a handful of really awesome fashion bloggers, and I was recently inspired to do an "Outfit of the Day" type of post.

Unfortunately, my little Nikon d40x didn't come with a professional photographer to help me out. I've had it for a few years, but decided to take an afternoon to get to know my camera a little better (as in playing in the backyard with my tripod and all of the camera settings). Here are some of my favorite shots from the day:

Outfit details:
skirt: Forever 21 (old)
shoes: Jack Rogers
watch: Kate Spade
pearl bracelet: vintage
gold baskets bracelet: Nantucket gift shop 
toes: Essie's Bikini So Teeny

I'm actually really proud that I took these all by myself. I've got a lot to learn, but I really liked dappling in photography! 

P.S. I almost titled this post "When Plants Attack".  I was stung by a plant (or more likely an insect on the plant) when I made the mistake of kneeling on it. There may have been tears, ice, and ice cream following this photo shoot. 


  1. Great pictures! That last one is so cute. And I really really love your outfit!
