Lavender Turtleneck Dress

This weekend could not have been more perfect if it tried. I got to spend time with most of my closest friends, including my friend Kyle who is in town visiting a few month stint in Texas for the Air Force. I also tried a new coffee shop, ate a lot of junk food, spent time with Jon, played board games, and saw my family. The best weekends are the ones that feel like they lasted forever, but still feel gone too soon once Monday comes around.

One of the my favorite things that I did was do a photo shoot with my best friend, Whitney, at a nearby park. Whit is finally starting her own blog on nerd culture, so we took some adorable photos of her in her best geek attire. I'm still a novice at photography, but I love getting to practice and be behind the camera occasionally. I do think the pictures turned out great, but that could just be my ego talking. We also carved out a little bit of time for my own outfit pictures, and I made sure that we ventured into the deepest part of the park to do so. It's a giant park with a lovely lake, but I loved how this lavender turtleneck dress looked against the mess of tall trees and overgrown plants. 

Wishing you all a Monday that's not completely terrible! If you haven't read it yet, be sure to read my post on my new Instagram project, #GoodNewsProject, so that you can join in!

  1. This dress is perfect on you! I love the color and the background is perfect. Your weekend sounded perfect and I can't wait to see your friend's blog!

  2. You're like a lavender fairy in an overgrown garden of overgrown garden things. WOW SO GOOD AT DESCRIPTIONS. That is a charming little dress though. And your weekend sounds magical! Yeah, mine was similar--just saw a friend and had some family time and it was slow but fast at the same time. The best!

  3. Can't wait to see the link to the nerd culture blog in the near future.

    The whole out is lovely, but I especially like the unstated touches like that bracelet!
