This is another piece that I scored in the extra 25% off already marked down sale price that Anthro had 2 weeks back. I had no idea I was going to like wearing maxi skirts so much. This one really flows when I move. I feel very bohemian in it. Like Stevie Nicks but without the feathers and capes.
Let's talk about how dissatisfied I am having to take my photos inside now. I had envisioned this skirt with me in a field, or in the forest with the changing leaves. Now it's just me the corner of the guestroom.
What do I feel when I see these photos? Yawn, shrug, meh. That about sums it up. Plus there are obvious light issues that I've tried to deal with as best as I can in Photoshop.
At this point I can't see myself freezing my butt off to get some outdoor shots. It's Canada folks. It gets cold here. Granted, not as cold as what people think, especially in Toronto or in BC. We are not living in igloos getting around on snowmobiles or dogsleds. On average we are much warmer than say, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin or Nebraska. Our temperature is almost on par with New York City. Our winters are not the kind of cold where you can say, "oh I'm going to wear some tights with my boots and a sleeveless furry vest over my skirt". Nope. I'm talking a down filled coat that covers your butt, hood up, woolly scarf and mittens on. I think every year that passes I'm becoming less adaptable to the cold. Sure it's not that cold yet, but we're heading that way …eventually. If we luck out like last year we won't get any snow that stays on the ground for more than a day or two and temperatures won't dip below -5 C or so. I'm not counting on that though.
Today it's only 4 C outside as the high and we had a little interlude of snow/hail/rain mixture while walking Zoe this morning. Granted it didn't stay but I don't want to catch pneumonia trying to get off some decent shots for the blog.Winter on it's own is bad enough, but now I need to think of ways to make my indoor photos better…any ideas?
