It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is New Years eve. Yet as I glance at my velvet new years eve dress I realize another year has passed. As always, time flies to quickly yet with that I am looking forward to what 2018 will bring. Certain aspects of my life have become stagnant, and I look forward to them blossoming in the coming year.

Velvet, Pink Fur and How to Salvage Bad Outfit Photos

Velvet, Pink Fur and How to Salvage Bad Outfit Photos

Ever get really excited to take outfit photos only to be met with completely undesirable conditions working against you when shooting? If you’re fortunate enough to reschedule that is always an option but sometimes that moment is all you have. That is exactly what happened to use when we went to Niagara on the Lake a few weeks ago for a little getaway. We went to unwind for a few days and while blogging activities were not priority I did still want to shoot some of my outfits.

Transitional Summer to Fall Wardrobe

Transitional Summer to Fall Wardrobe

So here we are. That awkward time of year when it’s chilly in the mornings, ¬†scorching hot during the day, and back to being cool at night. Made even more awkward by the summer to fall back to summer confusion. This time of year makes for a great opportunity to play around with layering, not only to look cute but also to keep up with the random weather changes.

The past few days have just been just beautiful. Oh so hot temperatures that had me digging out the cutoffs I had already stowed away for the season. Skirts and dresses also made an appearance, making it almost hard to believe that just a week prior I was wearing jeans and knit sweaters with the occasional lightweight jacket wondering where summer had gone.
