Ok, ok so I didn’t actually wear this today because well school is over, but I wanted to show you this super cute dress I got at the Canal District Clothing Swap. I got to wear it a few times before school ended and I just never got a picture to show you yet until today.
Today was also my first time taking my own pictures since last summer. Kev is always my handy camera man but we are trying to free some time in our schedules now a days. Since I have my days free now, I am going to try to take them myself. First thing I learned today was: We need a remote! Plus I am not good at photography. I need some practice. Boy is it hard to find something to focus on that will be where you will stand so that you are in focus. These pictures came out a little soft, but practice makes perfect right? It can only get better from here (here’s hoping that is!)
Anyways, back to the dress. Isn’t it just too cute? I love the colors and the little lace collar. I don’t wear much jewelry, or well any at all when I wear this dress. I like to keep it simple. I think the shoes jazz it up enough. Trying to run back and forth in time for the self timer and over little rocks- proved to be quite difficult. I ended up having a lot of mess up pictures as you can see below…
Dress: The Swapaholics
Belt: H&M (worn Backwards)

p.s. I dyed my hair the other day and at first I thought it was too dark but after looking at these pictures I think I really like it darker brown. At least all the brassiness is gone. yuck!
love the vibrant blue florals of this dress!
this dress is so great! I think the florals look fabulous. If I ever get knocked up I’m definitely going to go for it with the prints rather than shy away!
(and your hair looks awesome too) Great photos!
I thought your hair was a little different!!! I love it! Meanwhile, i totally feel your pain with the photos… I rarely get my husband to take my photos, but when he does they’re way better… and yep running back and forth for timers is hysterical
I adore the dress and the new hair color!
‘Love those shoes. I just scored a pair of black peep-toe Swedish Hasbeens in “super high” from eBay. Gotta love clogs! I just hope I can walk in them!
new follower, love the blog jen! i was curious, what kind of dye (brand/color did you use for your hair? love your look! 🙂
I lovee this print so much! Gorgeous! I used to have to take my own shots all the time when I was in classes constantly, and I totally appreciate having Brett being able to take them now – but it’s hard to fit them into your schedule sometimes! I try to plan fun things for us to do – that involve fifteen minutes of shots. Hehe!
oh I love the dress! I think you did a great job taking these!!
think these pics look great! especially considering you’re trying to navigate stones/pebbles in heels while racing against the self-timer. i can’t even count how many butt shots i’ve taken… eek.
anyway, you look fantastic (and i love your blog!) 🙂
I thought your hair looked darker..but I was thinking maybe it was just the lighting in the pictures…It looks great tho!! And that dress looks amazing on you!
The first thing I thought when I saw this was how pretty your hair looks! I don’t think it’s too dark at all, it’s just right.
You look darling in your swap dress!
Your hair looks great! I’ve been trying to take my own ‘id’ pictures the other day, I need them for a membership card… and I don’t have a remote either, so I know your pain 🙁 I gave up in the end, but yours look great! Nice garden too.
Blue looks amazing on you. Great dress.
I thought you did a great job snapping pics. Are teacher style files gone forever? Is something coming in place of them? Sorry to be a needy reader. I realize you are fast approaching your due date.
i love the hair color – saw the first picture and said “ohh new color!” love it – looks great!
Love it! Perfect colors 🙂
