What I Wore // Plaid & Monochrome

Today I'll be getting ready for another Art Show on Sunday.  I didn't do so hot in the last one but it's still fun to do.  Here is what I wore to work on Thursday:

Shirt // Dots, ages ago
Cami // Target
Belt // Icing
Skirt // H&M
Shoes // Thrifted, from Target

I can't for the life of me figure out how to get my camera to focus better.  I don't know if it's something with the settings.....It just stinks! it's better than when I'd set the timer & run but not a perfect as when Zach would take my photos :(

I also found this cool I Love My Size link up over on the Near Sighted Owl.  Encouraging positive body image is a huge thing for me & I've often been uncomfortable with my weight.  I am proud to say that I really love my size 14/16 body.  So if you love your size, go ahead &link up!

Also, my shoes were really cool:

I've been loving playing with Snapseed.  At first I didn't get it but now that I understand it, I am so glad I accidentally found out it was free the other day.  I am so glad I stumbled upon that (oh, apparently it's still free? I dunno go check it out).

I love the ease of editing & it's super powerful for how little you have to do to it.  I love this because it makes your photos look better and not just cooler.  I can't stand overly filtered photos on blogs, but photos that look better are awesome.  Starting out with a good photo is really key to using apps.  If it's too dark or out of focus a filter can just exemplify the imperfections.

I dunno, maybe I am a camera app snob! I'd really like to know your iPhonography tips.  I feel like I'm always discovering something new about an app.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. Cute outfit! :) Love the shoes x

  2. Ooooh thanks for the Snapspeed shoutout! I used Camera+ a lot, except I think it might be $.99...well worth the dollar spent though!

    And this is a post that Elizabeth from Delightfully Tacky did on taking pictures of yourself. The first tip she gives has to do with getting it in focus. Hopefully it'll be helpful for you : )
