Outfit I

Every now and again I'll have a mini photoshoot with myself but I've never really done an outfit post. I absolutely LOOOVE looking through other blogs that do outfit posts so I thought I'd do one, but before that, I have stories. 

I always have the most interesting experiences when I go out for pictures. This time I drove to the back of my neighborhood where I planned to take pictures near the train tracks. While I was walking through the disgustingly tall grass, there were a gazillion trillion crickets chirping and jumping up at me. I hate any type of bug creature so that was not a fun time. Also, as you'll see in the picture below, that is corn; that ain't no train tracks. Apparently lots of stuff grows in the short period of time of six months. Like corn, for example. I didn't know what used to be a field of mud this past winter was now taken over by a field of corn. Nope, I did not. I opted out of walking all the way around the corn to get to the tracks and decided to just take a few pictures where I was right then. So as I carefully maneuvered through the grass to place my tripod, I had my eyes peeled for anything that could possibly come out and attack me. And that's when I heard the vicious growl/bark. I almost ran as fast as I could back to my car until I realized it wasn't a dog. It was a saw, working on a nearby house. Clearly, I was just having a bad day. And then after all my paranoia eased off, I noticed I forgot my remote. OF COURSE. So, I took this picture and came home. It was a giant fail overall, although I kind of like how the picture came out.

Earrings - Target
Necklace - Target
Shirt - T.J. Maxx
Shorts - Wal Mart
Belt - T.J. Maxx
Shoes - Belk (Sperry Top-Sider)

I tried again later in the safety of my front yard. No bugs, no vicious dogs that were actually saws, and no horribly bright sun. It was much more successful.
