Options are limited

I always like to play chicken with my camera's battery. It refuses to tell me it's battery life in something useful like a percentage, so when it turns red and starts blinking, I like to see just how long I can use it before it decides to call it quits.
This time I got though all my weeks outfits, until this last one, when the battery went kaput after five frames. But two of them were in focus and they weren't horrible, so I called it a day.
The Slouch
And out of focus can be pretty too.

I like that sweater. I do the same thing with my camera's battery, so I've missed outfit pictures a couple times because of it.

I love the grey and purple together. That dress looks so cozy! Almost like a hug!

My camera does that to me more times than I care to admit...

P.S. I love your belt. It makes a statement but it's still quite delicate.

Gracey said...

My camera does the same thing. It beeps, tells me to replace the batteries and dies. There is no grace period on that bad boy.

I'm loving that belt and the color of those sweater tights - gorgeous!

I never thought of purple tights with my sweater dress. Will have to steal this idea from you when winter comes here! Love the belt too

Anne said...

Whoa! How did I miss the Shabby Apple giveaway? I love them! Heading over to check that out...

I really like that shade of tights, and it looks great with your sweater dress.

I really love the belt. Takes me about a hundred photos to get a few decent shots. I definitely need a tripod. The one-handed shots just don't come out clear enough.

That belt is lovely! You find the coolest thins at TJ Maxx!

eek said...

I love the cut of this dress! You look long and lean - simply fantastic!

Rachel said...

The dress looks like it has a really great texture, and you look great in it!

Great belt!!!

Vanessa said...

The worst is when it's freezing cold out and my battery drains even more quickly! Usually I only have to charge it like once every 10 or 12 days, but with this winter chill - it's been more frequent!
you look lovely and very sharply in focus! hehe!

Wendy said...

Your dress is divine!

my camera does the same thing, its so annoying. These pics came out great regardless

Ashley said...

Haha, I'm the total opposite with my battery. If it shows anything but full, it's on the charger in a heartbeat. These pictures look great though! I usually end up taking about 100 pictures when I photograph my outfits...way too many, and I constantly remind myself that I only need less than five to turn out, but still. 100 is the average.

jess said...

I always forget to charge my camera. The sweater dress looks cozy.

De Vero said...

You look gorge in this dress!

Lyddie I just love this look. The belt is my fave element - it goes perfectly over the sweater and you have a teensy waist! Okay now about this camera chicken...I have to go buy one. I feel like I'm dodging cars in the street. Argh.

xo,
Carrie

Alex Elizabeth said...

I think my life is incomplete without purple tights. I'm going to start looking for some! And I charge my battery really obsessively since I learned that half full really means empty on a DSLR... or is that only on mine?

Eyeliah said...

ha! I do the same with my camera, my old one was not as fun (I'd always lose) but now low battery just means I need to charge it tomorrow :)

Iris said...

That sweater dress is phenomenal, I love the color and it fits you perfectly :)

Mimi said...

This belt is fantastic! Oh, and i just got a new camera so hopefully I wont be having those issues anymore!
