Take outfit photos while the sun shines

Ahh fall, a season whose hallmarks of crisp cool days and changing leaves are often replaced by humid, rainy days with summer-like temps while the sun shines, and a remarkable chill once its left.

With the forecast for the week full of rain clouds, I'm happy that I was able to accumulate at least a small backlog over the summer...I only wish I had more, with the time change fast on the horizon and the inevitable cool weather, the ease of outfit photos becomes increasingly difficult.

  1. Looove that dress! And I love the suede accessories with it! :D
    We definitely needed the rain though, our brook was SUPER low the past couple weeks, now it's overflowing, haha

  2. Pretty dress and yes Fall is here but instead of bringing cooler temps we're getting pummeled with rain! Blah!

  3. This seems so silly to say but I know you of all people will get it - since I started my blog, I try to always have a week of vacation in September so that we can shoot a whole lot of outfit photos, giving us a back log for when the rain starts. I gather up everything I've been wearing but haven't photographed, everything I plan to wear and we just go for it. It helps. Plus, sunny photos are just so much lovelier. I had completely forgotten that you owned this dress but I love having another chance to see it, it's so sophisticated and ladylike and really, just gorgeous.

  4. I love all the colors in the lbd. It looks great with the red pumps.

  5. Oh wow, I really, really love this dress! And the shoe you've paired it with is pretty special too.

  6. I am actually sitting here right now trying to decide if I should go out and get some pictures. It's been raiing but it's stopped. It's very gray though. The struggles. ha ha. LOVE that dress. The print and cut is so pretty

  7. Lovely dress!
    I have something similar on my blog, you can check it out.

  8. What a beautiful dress on you!


    Hope to see your Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  9. I'm not normally a fan of floral but that dress is killing it. Absolutely lovely!


  10. Gorgeous dress and the shoes are the perfect pairing here. It's felt like summer here until yesterday, when all of a sudden we got a drastic temperature drop and now it's in the 60s! A little more fall than I was ready for, but oh well!

  11. This is such a gorgeous look, I'm in love with your dress!! I agree it's best to get a backlog of post pics before the weather is too cold.

  12. Gorgeous photos! You look wonderful! I love the floral print dress. I love floral prints like this one with a black background and then strong vibrant flowers.

  13. Beautiful Lydia !
    Simple yet so very well styled.
    Is this new location close to the new place ?

  14. What a gorgeous fall floral pattern! That dress is stunning on you!

  15. I'm with ya, girl! It's been SO HARD. Mitch gets home after dark, so more often than not my outfits go unphotographed these days. Too bad we aren't neighbors!! ;)

  16. This dress looks great on you! I love the print! And I hate that it starts getting dark out so early - that's what makes it really hard for me to get outfit photos in!

  17. Love this dress! The bold colors just pop against the black. You look gorgeous.
