Location, location

Today I was suffering from indecision as to where the best light would be for my outfit photos at 7 pm. Normally I like to go out a bit earlier when the light is hitting the end of the driveway and I can be nice and back lit.

Instead, I puttered about the yard and tried to find somewhere else ended up getting tons of bug bites... It's going to be a bad summer for bugs and ticks, we've already found three on the dog. (She's got the repellant on her, but they still jump on.)

Location
festivale clutch

Location

The first place, light filtered by trees, but shadowy.
Location, location

The second place, still shadows, but no nice rim light.
Location 2

The third place, even light, but in the grass which was full of holes and bugs.
Location 3
The Rundown
Top Gap - Pink A-line Skirt Made by Me - Turquoise Sandals Frye Gerry - Necklace Made by Me "Sweet Drops" - Woven Belt Thrifted - Earrings Handmade Artist's Alley - Sunnies Old Navy - Tie Dye Clutch Big Buddha Festival

Which place do you think has the best light?

I thought the second one was pretty, but most of all I LOVE THIS OUTFIT ON YOU!!! What great use of color and that skirt and clutch are amazing!

Kristin said...

The best light I've found is on the side of my house around 5:00! And I loooooove the pink/turquoise combo!

LikeSpinningPlates said...

I love these colors together! So pretty. The turquoise pieces are so great here. I LOVEEE the shoes and the skirt so much.

Jess said...

I like the lighting in the first and third pics. But since you are being bit my bugs in the grass, that probably isn't the best place. I love your clutch!

Shey said...

I love the tree location and the way you always add a touch of turquoise to your outfits, I'm learning. =D

Robyn said...

bug bites during outfit pics = story of my summer. I'm dying over here. Love the look though. Glad you got it in the end.

hurricanekerrie said...

I love the gorgeous colors here. The turquoise really stands out.

Ugh, I hate the ticks, too. We've discovered them in the field at school. I've told my students not to go near them when they see those bugs because they "suck your blood" and that was a good enough repellant for them. Until when, I don't know. Ick.

Rachel said...

Beautiful colors, especially the pops of turquoise!

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

Hahaha. It's always such a struggle to obtain the PERFECT pictures. Ah, the tough life of a blogger! ;)

You look fabulous - that necklace is WAY GORGEOUS. I love that colour.

Oh my goodness. There are days now where I'm outside for maybe ten minutes tops and I've gotten at least three or four bites! Just when I stopped wearing tights! That clutch is pretty amazing, and I love how you paired the pink and turquoise. All the locations are great, but the first one underneath the trees is magical. I just love those big tall shadow-y old trees, so I think that location is awesome! Plus the shadows are really interesting!

Wooo I love that clutch, I think tie dye bags are so cool (especially leather). I have a bug bite that is actually yellow and looks like a huge infection. Not cute, it is definitely going to be a bad year. I actually like the first place best... would flash to fill the shadows blow everything out too much?

Tinfoils Tiaras said...

The lighting in the last photo looks great! (Wait until you see my awful lighting in tomorrow's outfit post- my bf didn't want to take photos until after 8 pm!) Beautiful colours- I love the turquoise accessories!

Kell said...

That skirt is adorable... I LOVE it!

Indie.Tea said...

I like the light in the first shot...
And love the way you accessorize this outfit, the turquoise necklace and clutch, it looks great against the brown and pink...

Shen Dove said...

Love this look, the pink, brown and turquoise look great together and that clutch is fantastic. I like the lighting in the first and last pic.

The Fancy Teacup said...

I think the second and third shots had the best light. That's so cute about your indecisiveness :) I really like the cotton candy hues in your outfit, especially that self-made skirt! Gorgeous!

Love the colors for summer! I'm worrying it's going to be a miserable summer with heat and bugs - no good!

Burning Skies said...

Love this outfit! I think pink and brown go so great together! And the colors on your necklace are gorgeous.

this free bird said...

Each is so pretty. I think I like the second to last best, but it's a tough call. That's a super outfit Lyddie. You really know how to mix it up with ease.
