Yeah, sometimes I have a difficult time keeping it serious. In my defense I was guzzling down coffee in between each shot and it made me want to jump around even more than usual. I found this funny silk 1970's blouse at one of my favorite thrift stores, hiding in between a bunch of ugly oversized polyester stuff. These photos don't really show off the amazing collar but believe me when I say it's the stuff that dreams are made of. In the middle of shooting a woman walked by and stared at me for such an uncomfortably and unblinkingly long time that I had to stop for a moment and stare back at her until she realized she was gawking. I'm sure my fellow bloggin' ladies have experienced similar awkward moments with strangers when shooting in a public place... it never fails to both amuse me and make me feel like a giant goon.

Great blouse and yes, I have those moments almost weekly. This is made exponentially strange given that I take my own pictures. I mean, I can only stand there and pretend to figit with the settings on my camera while they walk on by for so long!

Yay for fun pics. This kind of reminds me of a 60s/70s catalog shoot, and I obviously mean that in the best way possible.

As for strangers messing up my photo shoot mojo, I have definitely been there. One of the biggest selling points of our house was the back alley with great lighting. Thanks to this locale I get stared at awkwardly significantly less often. High fives.

Firstly, this outfit is, of course, lovely (as always!). But more importantly? I love how happy, fun and carefree these photos are. So refreshing!
