Saturday was beautiful as promised, my windows down and sunroof open as I drove to Litchfield, letting the warm air blow in and tousle my hair. The center of Litchfield proved to be charming, pink doors and white windows. After the event at Lulu The Face Company, which I'll talk about tomorrow, I cajoled Ilse, one of the other bloggers, to take photos with me. In heavy foot traffic areas dealing with the tripod is a huge challenge, and we had our fair share of photobombs as it was. One of which happened to be a middle-aged man who just straight up came and put his arm around me. People (men) do the strangest things when they see bloggers taking photos.

  1. Wow, I can't believe that "gentleman" did that! So bizarre....

    I'm glad to see if finally looks like you got some nice weather and that you took full advantage of it.

  2. Love this flowy skirt and glad you had some nice weather this weekend.


  3. Strange behavior of that guy ... but a lovely and beautiful outfit!

  4. That guy was a trip! Not the first time it's happened while taking blog photos though lol... Nevertheless, had a great time shooting photos :)

    xo, Ilse

  5. Love all of your accessories, though!!

  6. That midi skirt is so gorgeous! I love how it flows! Perfect for spring!

  7. Your bag is so lovely. It's weird what people (men) will do when they see women taking photos. I would never have the audacity to put my arm around someone who I don't know. Weird.

  8. Love this flowy skirt!
    Have a great start to your week!

  9. How strange!! Why do people feel they can do things like that?! Love your midi skirt! What a fun spring outfit! Glad it's starting to feel like spring for you!

  10. Very pretty Lydia, I am glad you had such a good day ! and I have to say that I had that same thing happen to me in Bahamas. The guy was totally drunk :(

  11. How rude of that photobombing guy disrespecting your autonomy like that!
    The fact that you looked extremely attractive and were having photos taken a pretty photographer was no excuse.
    Your pleated white tulle midi-skirt is extremely pretty.
    It looked lovely styled with the scoop-necked short sleeved grey Tee!
    Your nailpolish, your long dark hair, and you all look beautiful.
    I love the outfit photos Lise took of you!

  12. Such a cute spring look! That skirt looks adorable on you!


  13. Such a pretty look!!! Sounds like a great event too based off the Instagrams I saw! And UGH! Men are so gross!!!!!

  14. What a gorgeous outfit, Lydia!!
    Heck, one time I had this drunk woman (and it was the middle of the day!!) come up and not only hug me, but told us her life story----there are crazies out there!!!

  15. I love this outfit on you! That skirt is so pretty! I can't believe he came up and put his arm around you. Maybe it is because I'm a blogger, but I can't imagine doing that to someone!

  16. Such a gorgeous look for a gorgeous spring day! Love the pretty skirt on you


  17. Such a pretty look- that skirt screams spring, and I love it paired with a simple tee.

    Also, YES, why do dudes get so weird when they see bloggers taking photos??? This happens routinely to me, too- lots of, "Hey, take my picture!" and random photobombing. Lol.

  18. I can tell so many similar stories about men interfering with photos. Once, three men actually picked me up as if I was a show girl on stage - I think they thought it was okay because they were all gay but I can tell you, it most certainly was not okay. That said, you did get some lovely spring photos despite the interruptions and the pink doors really are so charming!

  19. So true that men do the weirdest things when it comes to bloggers taking photos. I've encountered quite a few! I really love your white pleated skirt! It's such a darling look!

  20. What a great outfit! Love each item, especially that skirt and clutch!

  21. What a pretty outfit! I love the grey tee with the pleated skirt! I am sorry you had such a hard time getting photos - that man sounds so weird!

    I always feel awkward getting photos if there's anyone watching, I could never do it in front of a lot of people, haha! You do well :)

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far. We have some cooler weather at last so it's starting to feel a little more like autumn :)

  22. Wow men can be odd!! Lol I love that outfit though, such a beautiful skirt!

  23. Loving the simplicity of this look dear, there is elegance into it, especially on the skirt. The basic grey tee is such a good contrast for it.

  24. Yay for nice weather! I love that skirt too and it works so well with those heels. Maybe that's what I need to make that length work, a pair of nude/neutral heels! And how weird that a random guy just went up to you like that---who does that???
