A Playground & A Garden

First appearance of this dress from H&M’s Garden Summer Collection last season. 

Added a cardigan and belted it to make the dress work for church.

This maxi is so ridiculously fun that I decided to take the photo session to the playground.


I’m going to toot my son’s horn for a minute and say he did an excellent job in this “I think this is what hell may be like” weather taking my photos. That’s why I cooks up those good ole southern meals for my boy! Toot, toot :))

If only he enjoyed photography. Sigh... He's getting a vacation from photography so I'll be posting looks we've already taken that I haven't shared over the next few weeks unless you send me a tripod. Hey, it doesn't hurt to ask right? I'm hopeful. 

I've been tweeting about a new accessories store that opened last Tuesday called Charming Charlie. Have you checked out the one in your area? He's very charming.  I had to practice some serious self control Thursday when I took my sister to check it out. Let me just be honest I had to take her basket and purge it. You can spend a hundred bucks easy in that store for cute costume jewelry. I came out the same way I went in and for me that's a miracle. 

Kinda wish I had framed some of these photos before posting them. I don’t do much besides ensure the color is of fairly decent quality and put my tag on them. 

What do you suggest to make the display of my pictures more appealing. I’m using Photoscape and Picassa 3. And why does my font keep changing? Ugghhh!!! Isn't that distracting or have you not noticed?

Happy Sunday Loves :)

Air Kisses,

Gorgeous dress! I love it styled both ways. You look great in color. Pretty skin tone for any color! I love that you KNOW you can be a mom and still be fab! I'm with you sister!

You look so beautiful! That dress is absolutely gorgeous and so colorful and bold. Love it! The photo on the swing is too cute! I think all of your photos are beautiful, but to answer your question, one thing that would look great with something colorful like what you are wearing, is to edit your photo so that everything is black and white except your dress. That would really POP in a photo. Maybe you can play around with that concept in one of your future posts:-)
