Grandpa's Camera

A few months ago my photographer friend Lauren of Lauren Mac Design asked if she could photograph me!  Of course I leaped at the opportunity.  I've decided to spread out the photos into a few posts and this here is post number one!

outfit details: pants: c/o LC Lauren Conrad // chambray shirt: American Eagle // shoes: Target // leaf ring: LC Lauren Conrad // aqua ring: Stella & Dot // belt: H&M // acorn necklace: American Eagle

As you can tell by the bare trees these were taken in the springtime during one of the first semi-warm days.  What a joy those first days of sunshine were after a long winter!  For these shoots by Lauren I used props that represent me.  For this outfit I'm posing with my grandpa's old semi-automatic film camera.  I used to use this camera before I learned how to use a full-manual camera.  Oh sometimes I miss those days before I bought my DSLR...  Anyway, Lauren will soon be joining the blogging world so I will be sure to introduce her in an upcoming post!

In daily news, my arms are currently very sore.  This evening after work my friend Kristin and I went to the driving range in preparation for our upcoming golf outing.  Let me just say it's been a while.  Good news is I managed to successfully hit most of the balls!  Thumbs up to that.  Yeah, gonna need more practice.

Two important things!
1) Tomorrow (July 31st) is the last day to take advantage of Cup of Tea's 10% off code for eShakti!  Just use code CU23LZA at checkout.  Their 40% off sale is still going on :)

    Oh man, I know what you mean about gold hurting your arms... it seems like it wouldn't, but it does! It's kind of like playing the wii for the first time and having sore arms the next day (yep, can't you tell I'm supa strong?)
