Quit playing games

Today the sun was being particularly fickle. In between tornado warnings (totally lame) and about ten minutes of rain, I was trying to get my outfit photos taken, and the sun was just not cooperating.

Is it really too much to ask for twenty minutes of perfect sunlight every evening when I need to take my outfit shots?
Quit playing games
 I waited around...
ummm come back
...finally the clouds shifted!
But just as quickly as the sun appeared, it was gone again. I can't win. At least I got enough usable shots for this post during my minute and a half of sun.

And yes, I'm borrowing a camera right now while mine is at Canon.

Love that skirt, such a pretty color! You made that? Wish I could make clothes. Actually maybe I don't, I'd probably never do anything else if I could!!

I blame you on why I bought a chambray shirt from J.Crew the other day :) I absolutely adore this combination!

That harbor makes a gorgeous backdrop, and I like the DIY skirt!

Whoa, cool storm picture! I'm glad you got your hands on a camera while yours is being cleaned. I don't know what I'd do without a camera for more than a day or two!

Great outfit - it looks so cool and light for summer! And how cute is Chloe? :)

I'm impressed you got so many great shots in 1:30 minutes on a camera that isn't yours/you're maybe not as familiar with. Good work!
(Also love this color combination and the chambray tuxedo!)

I am buying some fabric this weekend because I want to make me a skirt. Yep, I am still on that road. I started a pillow and did not finish it.
I think you look so pretty i love that smile and Chloe, well you know, If she had a blog, I'd be a follower.

The Closet Shopper said...

No WAY! This outfit is almost exactly what I have planned to wear tomorrow. I'm not just stealing your look. haha. I swear. Although, if I hadn't thought of it, I would have. You look incredible.

I've put your blog on my side bar over at my blog. I hope that's ok.

xo,
Tracy

Meri said...

I'm glad the sun shone long enough that we could see your outfit :)
It's very Grace Kelly-esque to me. I just found your blog and DEMAND you continue to give me ideas for clothes! haha
Cheers!

rlutz said...

Love that pink skirt!! At least you got a few good snaps before the sun went back to hibernating!!Love the pin tuck detailing on that chambray shirt!

Gaby de Modacapital said...

I love your look!!! the skirt is so cute !! You look Gorgeous!! Kisses!

Mrs. J said...

I hate when the sun decides to play games and always at the wrong moments. Love the chambray blouse, your shoes and do you think Kohl's still has your belt available??

Amber Blue Bird said...

no that is not too much to ask. Is it weird that when I read your title I immediately starting singing "with my heart, with my heart"

Kristin said...

What a beautiful look. I love the chambray shirt with that skirt!

indie.electronic.alternative. said...

thanks :) sunlight or not, the pics still came out great!

jess said...

I love the colors in your outfit.

Eli said...

tornado warning?!?! scary!!

I guess you guys really dont take those seriously though if you were dressed this cute and out and about! I guess East coasters feel similarly about our earthquakes over here

Shea said...

Ah, I'm loving the chambray coral combo. And girl, I totally admire your patience and perseverance taking those outfit pictures during tornado warnings, black clouds, and rain! I would have weenied out to indoor photos no doubt!

Bonnie said...

I think these outfit shots turned out juuuuust fine! The changing weather just makes things a bit more interesting, right???
Don't even talk to me about tornado warnings. I am lucky that they have stayed away since the three bad ones we had earlier in the summer!

I get so frustrated when it's been sunny alllll day, and then... suddenly, it's not. I don't know what it is about evening and clouds sometimes but they just seem to go together lately. Yay for chambray! This must be a point-and-shoot camera, yes? Your photos are still looking excellent, I quite like seeing all the yachts behind you, actually.

Melina said...

Ooh, I love the combination of the chambray and the pink. Such a great color combination it kind of makes me want to find a pink skirt now!
