Remember when I said I was going to work on my photography this summer? Well guess what. I'M TOTALLY DOING IT.
However. As you can see, I still have a lot to learn.
What you have just witnessed are the five very best pictures of approximately 5,000 I took yesterday. I don't know how fashion bloggers do it! Photography is exhausting. But I liked my outfit, so I thought: What the heck? I'm gonna go have some fun with Danger Kate. (That's what I've decided to name my new camera. We're a good team, she and I.)
Now I seldom wear glasses, but when I do, friends tend to freak out. I guess because they change my face so much. But I have to admit, I think it's a nice effect! Combined with the smock-like top, I felt very art teacher in this outfit. Like, good morning class! Today we are making earthenware.
Those two necklaces are a gift from my mom. For my 28th birthday, she gave me a jewelry box filled with vintage necklaces, rings, and earrings that she picked out from thrift and consignment stores in San Antonio. Talk about freaking out. If memory serves, I immediately put 3-4 pieces on, then proceeded to model them for my parents, my husband, our waiter at the restaurant where we were eating, neighboring tables, the hostess, and eventually, strangers in the parking lot. Which is about the kind of behavior you can expect on an only child's birthday.
