fishy

Hmmmm, I don't really know what to write about today so I will go straight to my outfit. I love this outfit, it is so simple yet feels special - maybe it's the red heels. I got these heels at H&M a couple months ago. They are perfect because the heel is only like 2 inches which means I can actually walk around the city in them all day and for $20 you can't go wrong. The blazer is also amazing. It is stretchy so I don't feel constricted at all and it actually fits me well. I have a hard time with blazers for some reason, the arms are always a little too long or the shoulders a little too wide. Since I have a really short torso I find that most blazers make me look like a box on top. I rolled up the sleeves on this blazer because I hate having sleeves go all the way to my wrists, I don't know why but I just do.


I made this fish necklace in February after a super fun trip to some NYC bead stores with my mom (my mother makes the most beautiful polymer clay jewelry, I will be sure to feature some soon). I really love making jewelry but haven't done it in a long time. Our trip to the bead store totally inspired me to get back into it. I love having a creative outlet, I think I actually need a creative outlet, it just makes me so happy. I have glorious plans of creating a "craft nook" in Kevin and my next apartment... I'm sure Kevin will love it, haha.

This is the first time I have asked Kevin to take pictures of me for my blog, he did a great job! It will definitely be a learning experience. I have realized that I really know absolutely nothing about what my camera can do - I desperately need a tutorial from a camera guru, I have tried the read the manual to figure things out but its too confusing. I also know nothing about photography lighting so these pictures are a little dark, I'm sure I'll get the hang of it at some point - maybe shooting outside will help. Thank you for being so patient with me my love!!!
