Why, Hello There!

It's been over a month since the last night I posted. It's been way too long! I've been busy with sick kiddos, skiiing kiddos, and kiddos on February vacation!

I've decided to start taking my OOTD pictures outdoors. The lighting in my house is pretty awful and it's a pain to try to get shots that are detailed enough to post. I only have Photoshop on the family computer downstairs in the basement, so it's essentially impossible to do any photo editing unless I want to freeze my tail off. ;)

Cardigan: Gap
Scarf: Gap
Belt: Anthropologie
Dress: Anthropologie Tiny Windows Dress
Boots: Anthropologie Gilgarran Boots

I'll now leave you with my favorite shot from the photoshoot I did on Sunday. It's up the agency which photos they choose, but I'm hoping they'll like this one:

Cardigan: Gap
Dress: Anthropologie Pom Shift Dress
Belt: Gap

    @LC: I'm trying acting out. I'm only 5'3" so no actual modeling for me. :)
