3 for 1

Sometimes you just take so many pictures and they all look bad. Sometimes you have to settle for just one decent one.  Let's all remember that one post where I broke my own format.....

Swiping Family Picture Ideas

My sister-in-law called me asking for help with family pictures and explained navy and yellow would be the main colors they would be wearing. I just couldn't get the color combo out of my mind and decided to create my own look for their family pictures. I won't actually go, don't worry, I'm quirky, but not that weird.

We have had several haboobs in AZ this year. No, I'm not being crude, that's the technical name for a dust storm that engulfs the sky. I've watched it turn from day to night by a storm in seconds. This was a pre-haboob storm that wasn't making my camera very happy and the flash and zoom kept doing weird things. Nonetheless, I got one clear full body shop. Sometimes I settle. Also, somedays (as evidenced above) I don't wear makeup. Probably the combo of the two wasn't so great, but at least I was happy with the outfit!

Neon Spirt Day

Sometimes at work we're given some flack for not dressing up on spirit week. However, sometimes teachers don't do it because it's so hard to look professional. I obviously care big time about the latter. I think my profession sparked my interest in fashion more than anything else. I'm judged by how I dress, like it or not, but I also know I have the potential to look 18 and get asked for my hall pass or assert myself as the authority. I tried hard to dress up some for Homecoming week. Thank you NY&Co for the neon shirt, without it, this day would have been rough!

Proof of Pants

I've been asked lately if I ever wear pants anymore. Looking at my last posts and the few I have to do I realized the short-sleeves and skirt have been my staple the past few hot months. I do wear pants, just usually on casual Friday where I haven't put much together or for date night. I always forget to take pictures before date night, sadly because I actually do my hair and makeup for these which isn't always the case for work, but there are those rare occasions where the venue you're hanging at has a hula hoop contest and your friends happen to snap a picture of you. There you go, proof of pants, and one post where I got away from my standard picture poses.

A-line Love

I feel like the A-line skirt has been making a comeback lately.  They have been so much easier to find lately!  For someone with a total pear shaped body I simply couldn't be more thrilled!
