Try-it-out Tuesday: into the sunshine

     So for this Try-it-out Tuesday, the experimental aspect isn't in the outfit, but in the photos. Look, folks, this is not the usual bedroom wall backdrop! :)
 Unfortunately, my yellow, white and gray animal-print cardi didn't photograph well. Or, more likely, I didn't fiddle with the camera settings enough. It was very sunny at times which is not optimal photo conditions. But I'm happy that I managed to sneak in these photos while taking a walk through one of my favorite gardens. Of course, the one day I decide to sneak some outfit photos, there were TONS of people roaming around -- there was a wedding going on!

Yellow, gray and white animal-print cardigan (Macy's)
black tank (H&M, old)
Simple leather sneakers (6pm.com)

     Kind of a ho-hum outfit, but I was dressed for traipsing around and taking photos. I scored the sneakers for $16.99 and have been wearing them a lot -- they have arch support, which makes them amazingly comfortable for such a lightweight sneaker.

Happy Tuesday! :)


  1. Loved that you managed to take photos outside :) Great work!

  3. Thanks, Kat! One of this year's blog goals was to take photos outside, so this is a good start. :)

  4. Thank you for the sweet comment! :)

  5. I love those flower pictures - so pretty! And I feel like people are always walking by when I'm taking photos - so nerve-wracking. Following you now! :)

    lace, etc.

  6. Thank you :) Nice pictures! I like the outside pictures. I find that pictures look better outside so that's why I do most of mine outside even though it's freezing. haha.

    Oh no, a wedding?! Haha, I hope you weren't too embarrassed! LOVE those beautiful flowers :)

  8. The photos you took turned out gorgeous!

  9. Thanks, Kelley! The wedding was on one side of the garden, so I tried to lurk around the other side ... :)

  10. Sherri -- you're tough! I definitely would not venture out into the snow like you do. :)

  11. Thank you, Preethi! :) I think the photos would come out even more awkward with spectators! :)
