Back in December I met up with my friend Erika
for a little impromptu photo shoot! I wrote a little about it here
, posted one photo, and then waited for the perfect time to blog the rest. Does anyone else do this? You love something so much (a DIY you put together, outfit photos, etc.) that you don’t want to post it because once you do then you wont have that perfect thing
sitting in your back pocket ready to go up on your blog at any time? I kind of do this with everything. I will keep a new outfit in my closet for weeks/months waiting for just the right time to wear it for the first time. So, that’s what I did with these photos .. and this jumper dress! My In-laws got me this dress for Christmas (2011!). It made it into a few Instagram shots and one or two blog photos but that was it! I was just saving it for the perfect outfit post. There really isn’t a better time to debut an outfit than when you have an actual photographer willing to take your photos, so I’d say that worked out well!
I really need to meet up with Erika again soon. It was so fun hanging out with a new friend who shares an interest in some of the same things! We had a totally dorky moment when I mentioned something about knowing this blogger from Nashville who has a photography business with her husband (*cough*Kaelahbee
!*cough*) and we realized we both knew of her blog and started chatting about how much we love her. Haaa. Kindred internet nerd
spirits? I think so. I’m excited to dream up a few locations and plan some outfits with her! I’m thinking fun props and themes for upcoming shoots! Just need to nail down some solid ideas! I think first and foremost I may need some new clothes! I realized a few days ago how few new pieces I’ve purchased in the last year. I suppose I’ll have to get my remix on.. and maybe I can thrift a few new things! Maybe that’s a good idea for a shoot… thrifting! ;]
