This was the most awkward photo shoot. I stopped by a local park, which has become one of my favorite spots for taking photos, because there are enough trees around that no matter what time of the day I stop by I can always find a few shady spots. Just as I was getting all of my equipment set up a car parked across the street and the driver started watching the whole thing. Well, I tried not to let it unnerve me and kept doing my normal thing. After a couple of minutes I guess he decided across the street wasn’t satisfactory so he pulled in and parked directly in front of me for an up close and personal show. Needless to say I decided I was just about done at this point. While I am used to taking photos in front of people, they are usually doing their own thing and not unabashedly staring. I had to laugh when I arrived home to discover over half of my shots were entirely out of focus. I guess I was rattled more than I thought…
Leopard and lace are a favorite combination of mine. The deep burgundy of this lace tank makes it a favorite for fall. I am always looking for opportunities to wear these gorgeous rose gold satin mules and I thought the burgundy complemented them well. My DIY step hem jeans were the perfect length and give this look just a little bit of edge. I am loving this burgundy tote I recently picked up at Marshall’s and know I will be reaching for it over and over this fall and winter.
