The weather was so nice outside that I was able to take my sweater off for a little while and not freeze, but it was super windy, so I had to make sure I didn't accidentally flash anyone with my dress.
Anyways, about this dress. I'm pretty sure it's magic, because I love the color and the shape, and I was tempted to save it to be the last dress in The Dress Project. I got it for a wedding a couple years ago, and have since gotten it shortened. It's got a nice detail around the waist, and I always feel like Betty Draper whenever I wear it.
I'm in love with this location -- it's just a stairway in a park near our home, but our pictures always turn out nice when we take them there. It was a little busy at the park today, so it was a bit awkward when whole families walked by us on the steps. I felt compelled to halfheartedly shrug, "Graduation photos," as if that would explain our compulsive photo-taking and my vanity. Somehow trying to explain that I have a style blog seemed much more complicated.
How do you deal with onlookers during your blog photoshoots?
About to eat some dinner -- have a great night!
