All Dressed Up

Today I thought I'd mix it up a bit and participate in a new meme. My niece started one called All Dressed Up. She's a riot and I thought it'd be fun to play along, but just so you know these pics were actually taken to practice my photography skills for a couple different classes I'm taking. These are raw, unedited pics. And sometimes when your pics are less than amazing it helps to cluster them together to create a more artistic, interesting flair.


These were snapped a couple hours before a date with hubs. Check out the top center photo of my son trying to give me rabbit ears. Gotta love 'em.

It's hard to get too dressed up when you live in the Frozen Tundra. Last night the temps were around negative 30 with wind chills. You know it's freaking cold when you hear the weatherman say, "And by Sunday it will be a balmy 15 degrees." Human beings should not inhabit or coexist in such wretched conditions. Just sayin... Ok, enough about my winter woes.

Pants: Buckle
Sweater: Gap
Shoes: from sis
Headband: Target
Belt: Thrift Store
Hair: braided and then let down and crimped

And if by any chance you happened to miss my $1.97 hat from Gap, make sure to stop by and check it out.


  1. I wish I was taking those classes! My sons would be getting in on that action with bunny ears, too. Say, how is it we have the same camera but mine doesn't take nearly the same amazing photos as yours? Couldn't be the photographer, could it? LOL

    As for this winter, I'm over it! So sick of having my hair in ponytails because of the amount of static!


  2. Woohoo! Thanks for playing along:) I love your hair!! So tousled and beachy. The pics are really cool grouped together like that.

  3. You are too adorable!! Pictures look great! You look great!! And...I hope you had a fantastic night out! =)

  4. You are right, the collection of pictures is great. Does blogger drive you crazy trying to get them lined up like that? Love those rocker boots. You pull them off really well. Hope you enjoyed your date.

  5. You look very cute for your hott date!!! I love the headband.

  6. I hope you had a great date night!

    Just between you and me (and whoever reads this), your kids are lucky to have such a stylish, put-together mom. Take it from someone who didn't. Not her fault - just sayin'.

  7. great photos...
    love how you posted a "cluster" of them...
    date night? you and hubby are lucky!

  8. Love it! What a great idea and execution!

  9. You look gorgeous!!! The one to the right of the "bunny ears" photo is one of the best!

  10. You are so stinking beautiful!!

  11. That is a GREAT collage! And I agree with everyone else... you look like a million!
