Ok, I am in love with this weather here in the upper Midwest. It is finally sweater weather (SJ&YP note: can we dub that term sweather?)! Now I can sport my boots, skinnies, and sweaters with pride and without people looking at me like I am crazy! I have some gorgeous items in my closet that are begging to be let out.
Last Friday was really my first chance to truly enjoy sweater weather. Since Littlest and I were running errands to get ready for Biggest’s first sleepover (9 little girls, YIKES), I took advantage of the chance to throw on a favorite sweater. Yes, I do dress cute when I run errands. Sometimes. OK, I am trying to practice what I preach better than I used to.
So Friday I was all gussied up with lots of places to go. I was feeling kind of cute, wanting to snap some pictures of the outfit for the blog when I realized, I had no adults around to do it for me. By the time Hubby would be home, I would either be swarmed with kids or a hot mess from getting party ready. What was a girl to do? Call a professional!
I am lucky to be buddies with an amazing photographer, Mel at Studio Threesixty5. I am even luckier to be able to get her on the phone while she is in the middle of moving into a new (absolutely gorgeous) home. She was gracious enough to agree to snap a couple pictures for me on her phone so I could blog them.
Check out her amazing pictures, taken on her iPhone, no less. Imagine what she can do with a normal camera! Oh, and while you are at it, check out the outfit. I think you will agree sweater weather deserves to be the weekly drool.
It should be noted that Mel was not the only photographer we had on hand that day. In order to distract Littlest for a few minutes, I gave her my iPhone to play with. Little did I know that Littlest was a budding photographer. Please note: the photo below was not edited at all, not even cropped.
Well everyone, sweater weather is finally here. Go forth and snuggle up!
