hello loves.
i hope you had a lovely nye & a wonderful first day of 2011.
mine was perfect.
i am so ready for 2011.

(fyi: i took these pictures by myself & quickly.. i had to catch the sun before it set. 
i should really invest in a tripod bc balancing a camera on the side of the couch is never fun nor easy.)

  11. Welcome to how I have to take photos without Big Kev around, isn't it annoying? Haha

    Your pictures are always so beautiful! What sort of filter do you put on them to give them more of that editorial feel?

    Super gorgeous outfit as well! The jacket really jumps out at you in contrasts from the simple dress. Too perfect :)

  21. The sun is just such a pretty warm light-- you look heavenly in these photos!

    I also love those tights-- I've been dying to get dotted tights for the longest time now.

    I hope that 2011 is a truly wonderful year for you-- I can't wait to keep reading more of your blog through the year.

    ps: Target sells tripods for $20 and they are pretty decent!
