tip of the day



tip of the day:
do not take pictures near a middle school at about 2:45-3:00 pm.
you will be trying to casually take outfit pictures minding your own business
 and then the stop light will turn red...
 you will look up and 10 school buses full of middle schoolers will be staring at you. 
not only is it awkward but you will walk away with only 2 pictures
 and a very happy husband because the photos went super quick.

  16. Lol. These two shots are so amazing! You're gorgeous and in a great outfit--that's probably why they were all staring :) Love that blue wall though! You should try again on the weekend hehe!

  17. hahaha that's funny! well the two that you did get turned out adorable.

    i love that wall!

    ReplyDelete
  18. haha i can imagine it would be quite funny, you still look lovely though, gorgeous colours

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm glad that you at least briefly captured this adorable outfit, though! I love the yellow skirt.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha! Oh man... I HATE when stuff like that happens when I'm taking outfit photos. That's why I've been taking mine inside all winter, although it's high time I started doing it outside again. I'm tired of the bad indoor lighting. These photos are still lovely, though, and I LOVE your shoes.

  21. You got two super cute pictures! I had to laugh when I was reading this because I was taking pictures a few days ago and had kids watching me from the windows of the school I live across from. I thought some of the pictures turned out better because I was really laughing at the whole situation. To make it even better I was totally alone with a tripod. haha! Anyway, you look sweet and the kids who saw you are lucky!
    XOXO

  22. So funny. But you look absolutely gorgeous, so they were all just jealous :) Funny comment above. Definitely good you were your husband and not a tripod :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Haha funny!! Love your skirt!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Aww I want this blazer, it's so adorable! Love the mix with the dotted blouse!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ahaha - that tip is so true! I hate hate hate other people watching me while I'm posing, so embarassing!

    I am so glad you got a couple of snaps though - I adore this outfit - the mix of prints is perfection!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I´ll remember that, haha.
    Love the mixing of prints though, lovely outfit!

  27. Haha that's hilarious. I would be the same way. Awkkkwardddd. I can't stand taking outfit pictures with other people around.

    You look so beauitful though and I really wish you got a few more pictures! The colors in this outfit are so fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  28. haha! I live right across the street from a middle school so I know exactly what you mean! It's best to be inside when school lets out, no matter what ;-D

    That background with the blue bricks is gorgeous, though, against your outfit! It's worth putting up with inquisitive teenagers to get some snapshots in that spot! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is such a lovely outfit! That floral jacket is awesome, and I love the blue color of your heels!
    Oh my goodness, the same thing happens to me whenever I try to take pictures in my local park. Kids always show up and stare/laugh at me! Oh well. I think these pictures turned out great though :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. haha i had a similar embarassing situation at the wkend where a group of kids saw dave taking my picture and just yelled at us the whole time "why are you taking her picture" quckest photo session ever! :) x

    ReplyDelete
  31. i love this yellow shirt, gee. I've been looking for one like it myself.

    ya know, i still find it embarassing when anyone spots me taking outfit photos so I would be just moritfied if all those kids were around. I'm glad the pictures came out well anyway!

    xo
    i wander, i wonder

  37. ouch - unfortunate timing :) Kids aren't the easiest passers by to ignore.. well, pretty impossible :D

    You look lovely - the colours are awesome and I love your jacket and shirt together - great combination!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You are funny. That has happened to me before, but with adults who came rushing out of a building I thought was dead empty! Ugh. I've gotten a little more used to it - "Hi everyone, this is me and my tripod. No, I don't have an art project, No I haven't lost my mind, and NO I do not want you to take my picture (but thanks, that's nice of you to offer)". Hehe.

    The first picture is beyond stunning.

    What kind of camera do you have, darling?

  41. Haha hilarious. I only had to learn that lesson once, jr high students can be so cruel!

    Loved your outfit. Perfect for the colder side of spring when youre dreaming of warm, sunny days!

  43. Hehe...gotta love the awkward stares. Nothing makes me feel more uncomfortable. Gotta say, I have these same shoes and you have totally inspired me to wear them with dark tights. The whole look is divine as always:)

    ReplyDelete
  44. but you haaaaad to go there. look at your outfit. look at the wall. look at your outfit. look at the wall. LOOK AT OUR SHOES AND THE WALL!!!!!

    (yes, I know you did that on purpose... but just LOOK!)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I bet all of those middle schoolers were admiring your beauty and uniqueness though!! Love those walls and it really causes the outfit to stand out!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Lol! Your little blurb for this post was too funny. I can't imagine anything more awkward than dozens of pre teens in their Beiber shirts staring at you from tiny bus windows. They probably wouldn't know what to do with someone rocking an amazing outfit like this! Seriously <3 what you did with my skirt. The color combination is just incredible :D
