Is it too late to post my Easter outfit?



I have been bound and determined to post pictures in my Easter outfit, and it has turned out to be quite the ordeal.  Last Sunday, my father kindly agreed to take my pictures for me before church.  I set the camera to what I thought were the right settings and he quickly snapped a few shots, then we rushed out the door.  When we got home I took a peek, and the pictures that he took were great except that they were far too dark, which was my fault.  

Today when I got up for church, I decided to wear my Easter outfit again since I went to my parent's church last week and I was going to mine and Dan's church today.  Afterwards, I decided to try my camera's self-timer for the first time.  Now, keep in mind that I have neither a tripod nor a remote. (I set my camera atop two patio end tables stacked on top of each other.  It's all very sophisticated.) I managed to snap these photos before it started to rain, however I didn't notice while I was shooting that there are no pictures of my outfit head-to-toe, only head-to-knee.  Hopefully you can use the shot of my shoes to imagine how it looked all together.  

Oh, and my $1.00 estate shoes broke while I was shooting this, so you won't be seeing these puppies again.  So there you go.  After much effort, here are photos of my Easter outfit.  You might also notice that I went darker with my hair.  I decided to try and get it closer to my natural color because I'm thinking of growing it long and it's much healthier when I'm not highlighting it.

  2. that skirt is so bright and perfect for Spring. It's nice that you have two churches so no one will know if you repeat an outfit! :)

    ...That sucks about the Hasbeens! I can't believe they didn't get them at all the stores. The fact that H & M sells them for a fourth of the price of what the regular Hasbeens go for makes me think they are waaay overpriced regularly. They are pretty much the same shoes as the ones I paid $200.00 for!
