A Summer Gone

WI3J4287
Taking outfit photos are still super awkward for me. Especially when I try to act serious, or model-esque. I'm not super confident in the body image department, and truth be told, I am a goofball, if you know me, then you know that. I have a hard time not being funny. Especially when I'm taking photos of my outfit. Seriously. So, I made a decision, if I'm going to take these gosh dang photos, and blog about them, then I might as well start acting more like myself.

And, oh my god, I am on a mission to prove to Doug that I can take a jumping photo like a normal human being. I know, jumping photos, so coooool right now. But I am bound to the ground (I also can't do a cartwheel for the life of me, so not coordinated!) and the handful of photos I have of me jumping are a sight to behold. Sorry, I will NEVER share them. Just imagine it.

Okay, I got this skirt at an estate sale over the weekend, I haven't really taken it off. It's perfect for summer. Light, airy, and the prettiest colors. I'm all about skirts right now, and this one may be my very favorite. (Especially because it;s handmade!) 

Today, and the last few days, have been super rough, working through a wall full of orders, planning for some exciting projects this fall (I know, already!) and honestly, getting ready for our trip! I can't believe we leave in exactly 3 weeks. I am NOT ready for renegade, and I am not ready for our trip, there is so much to do! 

I hope yall are having a super good week so far. I know, it's already Wednesday, how did that happen?!?

xo,
Beca

  3. You are such a pretty lady! I love the colors in that skirt. They're pretty perfect for summer.

    I hear ya on the uncoordinated bit, though. I attempted a cartwheel and it was...nuh-uh. It was probably the worst ever. I guess I'm just not a jumper.

    1. I can't concede yet. I gave up on cartwheels a long time ago, but jumping, I know I can do it.... ;)

  7. i love this! i love your style so much, and when you get here, can you please go through my clothes and tell me what looks good together? i want to be just like you ;) oh, and the jumping pictures, i've tried, believe me, but i always have a pained look on my face like i'm giving birth or sharting or something. it's terrible, that's why they're not on my blog! i feel more comfortable crossing my eyes, picking my nose, or making fish face for pictures, so i can definitely relate! are we long lost sisters?

  10. I love that you are not doing super serious model poses and being yourself! All of that other stuff is too serious, boring and quite frankly I think there is too much of it. I love seeing you be you! Your outfit is amazing and I love all your jewelry and that belt!

    1. Thanks Nicole, I think being silly is much more fun to look at than serious model shots. Although dont get me wrong, a good model sesh is always fun. ;)

  11. 1- That jumping pic of you in AWESOME

  12. I love your outfit and I love these pictures! I'm totally with you on the weirdness of modeling, when I took the profile pic for my blog we literally took over 100 and there were only like 3 useable ones. And taking pictures for my etsy store is equally painful and I look like a sourpuss just because I'm trying not to cheese it up to keep the eyes on the clothes. So I like these nice, natural pics of you! You're better at it than you think. Also MINNETONKA WHAT
