This was probably my most fun photoshoot to date. Since the hubby is away I decided to take my tripod out and try my hand at a little photography practice. I'm usually pretty horrible at using the tripod because I don't have a lot of time. However this morning I looked outside and noticed how gorgeous the fog was. I knew I had to throw together an outfit to capture the lovely morning! I took my time and instead of spending 10 minutes using the tripod I stayed outside for about 40 minutes. The weather was surprisingly fresh and gorgeous. There was a fall crispness in the air, but also a little warm breeze that just made me appreciate so much about the autumn season. It was perfect!
I most enjoyed the scenery and lovely curled leaves, I hope you do as well!
I'm also trying out something different with the look of my blog-making sure all the pictures are the same width across the layout. I think I like it because it's easier for the eye to scroll down when everything is uniform. What do you think?
I found this absolutely amazing coat at a rummage sale this summer. I have been waiting until cooler weather to be able to wear it. The lady I bought it from was delighted by the outfit I wore, which included at hat. I think she was happy to see the coat go to someone who truly appreciated the beauty of it. It is a vintage military Navy coat with authentic anchor buttons. It is also extremely heavy, which will be great for this winter. This lace dress is an ancient Target find that I rarely wear because it is pretty fancy. For this ensemble though it was perfect! I also could not resist styling up this fabulous dress again. It is from my surprise swap with Kristian as a part of Flock Together. Here is how I styled it the first time. I love the thought of layering dresses- especially in the cooler weather. I also adored how the flutter sleeves added a bit more of my personality into the ensemble. Let's just say this look was one of my favorites to wear!
A couple more details to mention are the hat and shoes. This hat was given to me by one of my very best friends. She knows my taste completely! I believe she found it at a vintage shop, and I cannot believe how perfectly it fits me. The sweet little bow in the back is the most whimsical touch. Finally these shoes I procured years ago when my sister was cleaning out her closet for items to bring to the thrift store. I practically grabbed them out of her hands and said, "No, these are mine!!!" Apparently she had bought them to wear in her middle school project about prairie life, and I reaped the benefits!
I hope you have a very magical day, may you be blessed!
Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
