Cloudy with a Chance of Rain

Shirt? Joe Fresh Pants? Zara Shoes? Coach, Winners Clutch? Winners Cuffs? Auction

The dark skies and impending rain this weekend made me nervous for both selfish and unselfish reasons.
On the selfish side, the overcast sky made it hard to get clear photos with our mediocre camera. And that would have been sad because I really loved this outfit and without photographic proof, did this outfit happen at all? You know what they say, 'pictures or it didn't happen.' But it did happen and we have the evidence as I used the only photography trick I know. If the light is low, pose by a white wall. It's a good thing I don't write a blog on photography or I would be out of material really fast...
For unselfish reasons I didn't want it to rain because my friend and I saw a backyard wedding as I was taking pictures of her in an alleyway (and... that sounds awkward) earlier in the day. We tried to act casual as our creeper nature took over and we snuck peeks into the backyard. If I could re-do our wedding, it would definitely be just family, close friends and adopted cats in our backyard with some good food, fancy drinks and sparkly lights. Not like we'll re-do our wedding though, so maybe we'll just include all those elements and call it a party.
The good news for the nearby backyard wedding was that it only ended up raining for 3 minutes that evening. 3 minutes of rain can ruin a hair style but it would take a lot more than that to ruin a good party.

so cute, love those cuffs!

Courtney said...

You are so beautiful. I love this outfit. So jealous of those pink pants. They are gorgeous...

ps, I need your help! I posted on your last post what I thrifted (suede/leather skirt) and I'm thinking it may have been a bad idea because it's costly to dry clean, and I'd wear it without cleaning it, but I'm afraid of the bugs. What would you do? I think it's gross putting it in the freezer with my food!

I love the blouse.

Actually, I prefer overcast days for photography. You have no idea how many photos I take that are abysmally bad, because I fail to take shadows into account. The morning light always seems best.

Love the colors and the detail on that top..very cute!

Courtney- can't seem to get my goggle account to let me comment on your blog...grrrrr. Dry cleaning leather is expensive! I would just tie it up in a bag and put it in the freezer for 2 weeks if you are afraid. Bed bugs are a minor concern when thrifting clothing (depending on location) but it is better to be safe than sorry.
Terri-I like shooting overcast days too but this was past over cast. Most of the pictures were super pixelated (spelling?).

Saw this blouse at Joe Fresh, put it up against myself, and thought "I couldn't pull this off"

YOU DID. Perfectly.

Maybe I should re-consider :)

You wear bold colors so beautifully! I love the little eyelet details on your blouse.

What a fun color comobo, the shirt is very beautiful with the cut out details, I've heard rain on a wedding is actually good luck, not for hair but for the bride and groom, hope you've had a great weekend!

I'm glad you got an outfit photo too - this one is amazing! I have a pair of hot pink pants I need to wear now...

Think Twice Style said...

I have that same mentality about photos! If it doesn't get photographed, it didn't happen.
Also, do you wear lipstick? They're always a fantastic shade of pink. What do you use?

Frannie Pantz said...

This top is phenom! It would be perfect for a non-wedding outdoor celebration! I love all the colors!

I just thrifted some bright pink cropped pants - I've been needing inspiration to wear them out of the house and this is it!

If anybody ever asks me "what is it about that girl jentine's blog that you like" (as if anyone would need to ask me that) I would answer: butt shots. I'm guessing directorial credit for those goes to Matt.

I just fell in love with your pants. I wish I was brave enough to pull off hot pink ankle pants. For now, I'll just live vicariously through you.
