REMOTELY SPEAKING...I've got the power (back)


I received my new camera this week in the mail and could not wait to take it out (on my deck) for a test drive.  I am tellin ya this thing is making me feel like I want to dance, kick, spin, and raise the roof.  (I did all of said actions only to have glanced at the kitchen window to see my husband laughing and shaking his head)  Who cares, he knows I'm nuts.   It is freedom in the form of a remote control.  I still love my other camera but I feel so rushed and tense trying to pose for a pre-set timer which gives me 5 consecutive photos.  I am finished my shoots in a few minutes as compared to I won't even reveal how many hours minutes that it took me before.  I even appear happier...no?

Ahhh, the beauty of a flash that works properly.... somewhat hides my numerous flaws and imperfections(the beauty of aging gracefully)

The weather has been so beautiful lately, therefore, I was determined to wear this striped thrifted shirt.  I put it on and walked into my closet to hunt for something to wear with it.  The only thing I could find was this thrifted, knit, Calvin Klein skirt.  I was happy with the toned down color of the skirt paired with the bold stripes.  I only had a few minutes to spare as I was heading out to have lunch with my close friend and follower of this blog Jenni and some of her closest girlfriends. 

Thrifted shirt 3.99/thrifted skirt 3.99

Apologies for my overzealous shoot....I am really happy with this new camera and remote.  What is making you happy lately?

glad you're happy with the new camera!

re: the KARL collection for Net-A-Porter, i would say that it is expensive for some of the things (800 for a leather jacket say) but then offers some very reasonably priced things like some of the shoes and dresses. I'm not sure if they're shipping internationally or if it's just uk?
i loved that video though, was so interesting to hear him talk about himself in such an honest way!

Cute top and skirt! It looks comfy but also kind of chic! I wish I had a remote for my camera, I think I'm going to add to my "wish list".

I LOVE this outfit- you look like a ray of sunshine and that cropped top is adorable! I need to get a tripod and remote so I don't have to rely on my man (plus then I could take more outdoor photos!)
