In honor of linking-up with Laura and in hopes of re-connecting with her and some other big-time bloggers in the future, I am trying some new picture-taking strategies. I pulled out the big guns; my FujiFilm FinePix F500EXR (whatever all of that means) camera instead of using my iPhone. And when PC got home early from work today, I enlisted him to play photographer. No more deceptive reflections from my skinny mirror. No more contortionist moves trying to hold my iPhone far enough away to get a full body photo.
At least not for today.
I took full advantage of PC’s photographic talents and posed every which way but up. He always makes me laugh (in general but especially when he is taking my pic). So these ear-to-ear grins are sincere as I look into my husband’s camera lens.
See the tag on my kitty pillow? Remember the post about superstitions? If not, you can find it here. One superstition I forgot to mention is that I don’t like removing tags. Not tags from mattresses. Nor tags from pillows (bed or throw). And if you could see the waist band of my skirt, you would find the price tag still attached to the label. Just a little bit of trivia for you.
Here’s the rundown on my outfit:
- White button up blouse – Dress Barn
- MAK Kelly green cardigan – StitchFix, similar here
- Black and white patterned skirt – Loft Outlet, similar here, here
- Comfort Plus black and white pattern block pumps – Payless
- Green , black and white scarf – Charming Charlie’s
- Silver cuff – gift from Metra, my sister-in-law
- Silver and green earrings – gift from PC
After my serious “photo-shoot”, PC and I had a little (more) fun.
And Purrsimmony and Purrsnickity even got in on the action.
If you are one of the 34.7 million Americans who claim Irish ancestry (like me) and/or one of the nearly 122 million Americans that celebrate this holiday annually [source], may this St. Patrick’s Day be your best yet. And if you don’t usually participate, maybe this is your year to try…slip on a little green.
I think you’ll find it will grow on you.
Hugs and kisses,
