Overexposed photos are underestimated

I really don't feel very good today, but I tried to pull myself together for a little outfit/photo-session.

I kind of look like a question mark in every picture today, but that's mostly because I was afraid someone would see me. I usually don't care what people think of me, but running around with the camera in the garden and taking pictures of myself would certainly raise a few questions. (I would think)

I am truly in love with this dress, and went shopping in it for milk, lemonade and apples. But I wore pilot-shades and tried to hide the fact that I skipped the makeup.

And these flats are really comfortable, I could walk three miles on them.




This last photo is overexposed intentionally, I like it because it can give of a dreamy feeling - much like the one I get when I wear this and the sun is still lighting up the mountainsides on the other side of the river.

  9. You look lovely. The last picture seems so romantic and lovely.
    Also, taking pictures outside can be so awkward! I'm fine with people looking at me funny (now)...but I really hate it when they try to chat me up!

    Hehe, you're so cute. Luckily we have a hedge in our garden, so I don't get interrupted :p

    maritaBliss:
    You're so lucky, our apartment is tiny and overstuffed, which makes it really hard to find a spot to take some pictures. What am I going to do this winter? :p


    Thank you so much, all of you, for the nice words and compliments!

  26. I am glad you finally made your blogger profile public - I was dismayed that I couldn't view the blog of the person that left me such lovely comments!
    These photos are stunning, I rather like the overexposed look as well. The last one is particularly beautiful - like you said, the photo does seem very dreamy.
    Gorgeous dress and headband!

  29. the last photo is really beautiful.
    love the belt/sweater combo with the dress.
    and i totally know how you feel about running around taking pictures of yourself.
    not that it's a big deal or anything you know but still, just a little weird.
    sometimes i scare myself out of a great location because i just don't want to be bothered by people!

    love the blog.
