And in the blink of an eye, I'm back in California again. Well, sort of. I was supposed to fly home on Saturday, but a big snow storm on Friday made it impossible to make the three-hour drive to St. Louis, so we decided to push my flight back a day. As much as I was ready to get out of 10 degree weather, I can't say that I minded all that much. The cold is one thing, but I do love how the snow makes this time of year feel much more special. It was nice to just spend the day inside with my nieces and nephew by the Christmas tree for just one more day before it was all palm trees and warmth. So it's really a win-win either way.
Enough about the weather though, let's talk about these photos. I think that if I were a better photographer then maybe I wouldn't get so excited every time someone else takes phenomenal photos for me. But alas, I am not that a great of a photographer, and I do have to rave about these photos. Mary and I went to this housing track that I had never been to, and the light was absolutely perfect. This mint dress (that I'm wearing as a skirt) has been hanging on my wall as decoration all semester (it's just that pretty), so I keep forgetting that I can actually wear it. I decided to just make a theme out of items I've forgotten about, and pulled out this sweater I haven't worn in forever and this necklace that had been sitting in my room without a single wear until now. There was still a good amount of snow on the ground that day, so snow boots were a must as well.
(P.S. Don't forget to shop my closet so I can afford to buy Christmas presents for my friends and family!)
Katie also met us that afternoon to have Mary take outfit photos for her as well, and you have to check them out. Mary's photography combined with Katie's model-esque looks and style was a match made in heaven.
I'll be back to using my tripod all break, but hopefully I'll be able to post more over break. I'm way too pumped for a month of good food, no homework, and Christmas. One of these days I'll get my shopping done.
