IMG_7950So the secret to taking good selfies is a weird angle huh? I can’t see my double chin in this photo! You know, I have to say that while I like looking at those posed or curated blogs/instagram pictures, it’s a little disconcerting when the person is unrecognisable. I see that happening to a lot of wedding photos – the contouring, falsies, air-brushing and what-not. Why do you want to not look like yourself so much? Maybe a little tweaking or colour-balancing is okay but I’ve seen pictures where their entire face shape is different. I do almost no editing because I’m just lazy like that. These days, if there is an “enhance” button, I’d click it. If not, you get the actual photo – warts and all. Besides, I don’t drive to the park to look wistfully  just so I can take mood pictures with nice backgrounds.

Anyway, I have a huge head. I don’t like taking photos with the myspace-style angle (aka top angle down) if I can help it. When T does it, he always makes me look like a bobble-head doll because he’s almost an entire foot taller than I am. But when I get him to put the camera nearer his navel, the photos come out all blurry or weirder. HAHAHA!IMG_7959

I was actually surprised at how comfortable this combination is. I’m rather fond of just throwing things on and winging it for the day unless I’m very uncomfortable – ladies, you understand the problems of stuff riding up and tugging right? This might be an ensemble I would wear again soon… then again *koffkoff* Sometimes I just plain forget.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey and white striped 3/4 knit top from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Blue/pink wooden bead necklace from Forever21 (a recent purchase); Pink stretchy bow belt from H&M

Bottom: Blue chambray skirt from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black strappy heels from URBAN OUTFITTERS (Kimchi Blue)

This is the only 2nd time I’ve worn this dress since I bought at the post-holidays sale in January this year. My sisters and I were shopping at the H&M sale in Town Square (Las Vegas) and we basically bought more than 15 pieces for like $200 or so. This dress was $15 and I liked it enough because of the starry galaxy print but not enough to buy it without the encouraging of my sisters *koffkoff* If you ladies know what I mean…

Dress: Fuchsia strappy hi-lo dress from FOREVER21

Accessories: Gold weave pleather belt from H&M; Natural weave bamboo bangle from THE ISLAND SHOP

IMG_6452How do you like our little yard? It’s mostly brown because we live in the desert but I decided to take pictures here because the landscaping guys just came in to tidy it up and it looks neat!

One thing though, you have to go in and out quickly or you will burn! Summer in the desert is no joke. I have my minimum of SPF 50 for the body and I also try to cover my arms when it gets too hot because I get all freckly!

What I’m wearing:

Top: Green/White striped task with fabric flower detail from KATE SPADE

Outerwear: Dark grey cardigan from LURVE HANDLES

Accessories: Brown faux-leather belt from STEVE MADDEN

Bottom: Barnswallow Cuffed-Twill Boyfriend shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)
