Smiles & Summer

How is everybody doing?

Where I live has been receiving some beautiful weather! I decided to take advantage of it and take some outdoor photos! I put together a couple of outfits, which I was going to base around the theme - pastels. However, I had to discard one of the looks because the lighting in the photos was drab. I think they are just more summer looks now... so that's what they are... summer looks!


RACHSPEED PHOTOGRAPHY

Firstly, I'll start with my outfit of the day - I went to lunch with the family yesterday. It was super hot, and I decided to wear a pleated gray dress, and cinched in the waist with a belt. I also added a scarf, and took my bestie, Dasha's advice and tucked the ends into the belt. It made everything look much more fluent.



I used my mah-mah's backyard as my setting for the next two outfits - I feel like it's my own little secret garden. Usually, there are rose bushes, but they have yet to blossom yet. For the first outfit. I mixed different elements together such as jersey, cotton and terry cloth. I mixed pastel colours together with a basic colour - gray. For a little fun & sparkle, and added some sparkly sequin ballet flats and a ribbon I used as an oversized bow headband.



The next look I put together was with basic jean cutoffs, and my summer staple (see my youtube vid!) a floppy brim hat, I matched a pretty pink top tucked into my high waisted jean shorts and a belt. This look is super pretty!



I also have lately been taking an interest in photography, and I experimented a little bit! Check it out here.
