Oh. my. gosh! I love this boho ensemble. I’ve had this floral tank (first featured it here) and these crochet shorts (featured them here) in my closet for a while… and it took a moment before I paired them together. I first shared a glimpse of this outfit inspiration on my Instagram, and when I took these photos, I grabbed my handbag for the day, and forgot to show off my straw tote that serves as the finishing touch to this look. Oh well!
By now I’m sure you’ve heard that Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, plagiarized parts of her speech from a speech several years ago, originally given by current first lady, Michelle Obama. If you haven’t yet, check out a video of that here. (I just watched the video for the second time, still can’t believe she did that!) Oh, the situational irony…
In my previous post, I touched on the need for goodness (love) to overshadow badness (hate). During a recent conversation, it occurred to me that, while love, compassion and empathy are all essential components towards resolving social injustice issues throughout the nation and the world, they are not the ones that must be prioritized… curious to know what I believe the key components are? Check back for my next blog post on Monday!
We’re already moving into the final days of July and on Sunday I was hit with an ad from Target which featured Back 2 School sales. Being the non-procrastinating type, I took Alena to Target yesterday to get ahead of the rush and pressure of picking out school supplies and clothes. We checked most items off of her 5th grader list, and I have to say, it feels good to be done. Target makes it so easy with their Back 2 School section in school and online!
Thanks so much for those of you who gave me photography tips! I received some comments and questions stating my photos look great and also curious about certain details. I use a Nikon D3300 Camera (it comes with an 85mm kit lens) and usually a prime lens that is 50mm and f/1.4. The camera is just a machine, however, and it really is all about the photography knowledge of the person behind the camera. Photography is an essential hobby that I am determined to master, so as David and I improve on our photo-taking, I will share what I’ve observed as working and not working. What do you think of that? Photo tips, anyone?
