Go Chic or Go Home

The simplest of things can absolutely make my day, like this. Thanks for featuring my outfit, Go Chic or Go Home! You’ll want to go and check out how the other ladies wore this color blue! I really need more bright blues in my closet now…

Do you use Go Chic or Go Home? =)

Brick Alley

After we took photos of Year of October downtown we walked to a little hole in the wall local joint to have dinner and catch up! Once we were done and on our way back to the car I coaxed Nate into running in to a back alley with me to take a few photos of my outfit. He really is a trooper. We spotted this location from the sidewalk and I think I may have actually danced a little when I saw what was back there. It’s probably one of my favorite places I’ve ever taken photos - ever. I’m thinking the top floors serve as apartments or something judging by the dress hanging in the window of the below left picture. I love that little bit of detail - I didn’t even notice it when we were taking the pictures! Nate has gotten really, really good with my camera hasn’t he? Gosh! I’m blown away!

I decided to get a little fancy with these by making a collage and drawing all over them with my outfit details, and I even added a few lyrics that I’m loving lately. Isn’t it funny how you can dig out a CD in your car that you haven’t heard in a year or two, pop it in, and feel like you’ve time warped? I have the strangest taste in music. I like so many different genres that it’s sort of ridiculous. On that topic- I want to see Merle Haggard so badly this coming August. Birthday present to myself? I’m really hoping to make it to a few different shows this summer. Nate and I used to go to so many, but life’s responsibilities keep us at home these days! I kind of can’t believe we’re going to miss Bunbury in Cincinnati … Weezer, Death Cab, The Gaslight Anthem, Manchester Orchestra…. need I go on? We are never NOT here, and during this festival we will be in Florida. I’ll try not to complain. FLORIDA. We leave on the 6th - home is so close!

Have you checked out the bags from Sienna Ray, yet? I am absolutely in love with mine. It appears quite small but I can actually fit my DSLR in this baby. It’s not a comfortable fit, but if I need to take it with me it’s do-able. I especially love the adjustable chain strap - it goes from shoulder bag to a cross-body in seconds! Love!

Have a great Friday, friends! My car has no air conditioning and the high today is 103* .. YAY!

Having friends in a band is a pretty cool thing, because sometimes they think that you are cool enough with your big fancy camera to take their photos. What they don’t know is that in the world of blog land everyone has a big fancy camera and I’m not actually as cool as I pretend to be. But, moving right along..

Nate and I met up with Josh and Phlecia Sullivan, the sweet newlywed couple behind available for listen and download here!

Or here, real quick!

This was really a lot of fun for me because while I absolutely love photography, I’m not the best at directing people on how to pose or stand, so I’m not extremely confident in my ability to take photos in this type of setting. Thankfully I think they liked how the pictures came out and I don’t feel like a failure! Hooray. :] And honestly, how could Phelcia not photograph well - right? I know. (You too, Sully!)
