Let's Take a Look at the Facts

I was talking with Robyn, like a do everyday.  We got on the discussion somehow of how many pictures she takes versus how many pictures I take.  I'm not sure if you want to know what type of gear I use, or my picture taking skills... but keep reading and you are about to find out.

Camera I use: A Nikon Cool Pix L20.  Yes, I use a point and shoot on a tripod.  It has a simple 10 second timer.   I take about 6 or 7 photos in my shoots, on a cold day... that shrinks to about 3 or 4.

I edit my photos using Preview.

Why am I confessing all of this?  I am not sure.  I guess, I just want you to know that you don't have to have a super expensive camera to take good photos.  You just have to know your equipment. 

Can we talk about this dress (and not talk about my kitchen and laundry room?)?  Great!  This weekend I went to the fantastic Local Honey and picked up this dress.  Beautiful, brown, and paisley. 

Dress: vintage, Local Honey
Tights: Mocha c/o We Love Colors (We Love Colors sent me a back up pair of mocha tights)
Boots: Anthropologie
Necklace: family heirloom

By the way, I have a pretty fantastic giveaway coming up later this morning.  Just get ready...  it is absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to tell you all about it!


  1. Love the dress... and the shout out.

  2. That is interesting to me, I wish I could master my timer - I mean I can make it work, but my ability to run back and pose is the issue ha ha!


  3. I also love the dress.

  4. Love this dress! I have been on the lookout for long sleeve dresses forever! Your pictures turn out great and I agree that you don't need a nice camera. Even having a nice one, my pictures don't always turn out great.

  5. the dress is perfect!

  6. I love this outfit! I used a point and shoot for the first few months of my blog's life, and the only reason we upgraded was because my mother in law let me borrow hers.

  7. oh man....i take an embarrassing number of photos! when i take pics outdoors, its a lot less. but when its so cold, as it is now, inside, im always trying to find the right angle, distance from the camera, etc.

    i love this color tights! def digging the lighter brown.

  8. Great outfit, love your dress.... and it's always really interesting to know what photo kit other bloggers use!

  9. You do look amazing in this outfit. That dress is perfect on you and I love the boots!

    I need to get a camera because my iPhone one isn't cutting it for me lately. I'll probably end up with a point and shoot of some sort!

  10. You're precious!
    I love your dress <3

    sweetness xx
    hope to hear from you*!
