Stolen kisses

I got a new phone last week, and in my own tradition, transferred all my old photos on to it; every photo I've taken since the very first iPhone came out in 2007. Unsurprisingly the very first of nearly 12,000 images is a somewhat blurry Chloe.

The phone also sections off the various types of photos that have been taken, including selfies - anything that was snapped with the front camera engaged. I started to flip through them and found that overwhelmingly, most of them were of kisses. Kisses with Sean, with my Sister, with my Nephew, with friends, some of whom I've lost touch with, and with Chloe. Sweet kisses, silly kisses, stolen kisses.

  1. I love the outfit and especially how you combined everything. Of course my favorite item has to be the gorgeous skirt!

  2. Aww that's so sweet. I don't document nearly enough kisses and should do that!

  3. I still own my first iPhone ! its 4 i think - i refuse to buy anything else.
    Its cute you save all your pics.. I save them in USBs that then I cannot find :(
    And you know I am a fan of this skirt. Looks like its still summer.

  4. How fun to go back and look at your old photos! Your skirt is so bright and fun! Have a great weekend!

  5. I transfer all my photos too (it's good to know that someone else does that as well!). And I just love your neon skirt, it's so bright and pretty and sort of perfectly you.

  6. My husband set up our TV to play a slideshow of all of our photos (which is seriously without exaggeration teetering on 100,000) and it is my favorite feature of our house. I love looking at older photos! Love this yellow skirt and the hat as well!

  7. How nice to hold close such sweet memories. Love your kisses tee. I am in love with your sparkly sandals and beautifully put together outfit. :)

  8. love all of your chic white accessories in this look! and how lucky that you still have all of those memories to look back on!

  9. I love looking through old photos on my phone. Brings back fun memories :-). love your bracelet layering here, too!

  10. I am amazed, and impressed, but also partly not surprised, that you've kept every photo you've ever taken on your iPhone. Much like I streamline my closet, I streamline my photos, an anything I no longer need, I delete immediately. It's obviously a personality trait of some kind. One thing that has stuck around in my wardrobe, despite not getting much wear, is my own version of this t-shirt - and you're making me think I need to get it out again, because it looks so fun and cute in this outfit!

  11. The yellow skirt is amazing. I really love the beautiful pop of color it provides!

  12. As always you look fabulous! I love the graphic tee which makes this look more casual. By tucking in the shirt and wearing a fitted blazer over that is fitted at the waist gives creates a beautiful silhouette. The yellow looks amazing with your skin tone and the A-line gives you such a tiny waist! I love the fun accessories to keep this look casual and stylish! Great outfit, babe!

  13. Aww...cute story about your pictures! And this tee ties in perfectly with it. Love the bright skirt too!

  14. Aww, that's so sweet! I keep filling up my phone's memory and had to keep dumping photos onto our server. I finally went for the iPhone with the larger storage space. Haha.

    You look darling! Have a wonderful weekend!

  15. Love the chic and simple outfit and those sandals are really pretty. You look great !

  16. I love that Tee, so lovely and love to see how you style it in different looks. This is so playful and girly look. Wonderful that you still can catch that summer weather.

  17. I'd never have enough storage for 12000 photos but I'd love to look back on some of my first ones! Great look, especially .love the yellow skirt!

  18. You look pretty and dashing in your outfit! <3

  20. Hahah how adorable is that?! I love that you had saved so many of those pictures. Mine are mostly of art projects and friends since I like taking pictures of my friends but not with me in them. Any who, that shirt is very relevant to your writing and I love how you made this post full circle with it. :)

  21. I always love going back through old photos. My son and I love watching his "old" videos when he still had his baby voice. Love those gorgeous sandals.


    Hope to see your Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
