I mentioned last week that we had a disappointing foliage season. I hate when the trees are bare. (That’s one thing I love about Florida; leaves are on trees year round!) The foliage makes the months of bare trees (semi) worth it. My favorite is driving down the interstate when you can peek all the changing colors from every direction. There’s something about the colors as you’re speeding by that I just love.
We had some crazy weather this weekend into Monday so the leaves that were changed are pretty much gone from what I can tell. I’m so glad we went to a local park last week for these photos before the storm. To be completely honest, I was not feeling this whole shoot. It was windy, and my eyes were watering like crazy, and my hair was blowing around. And I just didn’t feel cute.
I think we took photos for fifteen minutes before I finally called it quits. When you’re not feeling cute, it’s torturous taking photos. I had planned on never letting these see the light of day, that’s how much I wasn’t feeling it. But then I got the proofs from Carter, and I completely changed my tune. Apparently, it’s impossible to take bad photos when you’re in a gorgeous park… even if you feel bad!
This was the last photo we took. I thought I was going to cry I was so frustrated with my stringy hair from the wind. It turns out I love the windblown look. I’ve been working on self-confidence for a while now, but still have bad days now and then.
I got this plaid shirt the minute I saw it online. It’s a thinner shirt, which is actually ideal for me because I prefer to layer my plaids. When the shirt is thinner, it’s more comfortable to wear under sweaters and such! I just couldn’t say no to the ruffles, and this plaid has to be one of my favorites. The perfect touches of color.
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me raving about these sneakers on my Story. They’re so comfortable that I’d recommend getting them even if they’re not your style. If only to wear around your house or for errands or something. They feel more like slippers than sneakers! I wouldn’t say I’d be the first candidate for velvet sneakers, but these have me completely sold on the idea!
Have you seen cuter acorns though?
