spring prep

Hey everyone,

We made it to April! Congratulations to those who survived another cold winter. My friends who live up North went through a brutal winter this year, and they even had a snow day off of school for the first time in like six years. That's crazy!! I'm seriously so so happy spring is here. Here are some items I can't wait to wear in the warm weather. :)

 The cutest bikini, ever, from American Apparel. A reader pointed this out to me, but I realized that I have a lot of rose chiffon clothing. I can't get enough of this gorgeous fabric!

 This crochet crop top from Forever21 screams summer music festivals and pool lounging. 

 Sheer chiffon button with a crochet collar? This top was made for me! (from A&F)

 These tiffany blue oxfords just make me so happy. It was the last pair left at Nordstrom Rack. Score!

 Finally, I found a pair of aviators from Chloe that are casual enough for everyday wear, but are nice enough be worn with fancy outfits. The leather trimmings and gold rims sold me. And the case is also so cute!

 My sister got me this gorgeous lavender cross-body bag from J.Crew last Christmas. It has been sitting patiently in my closet, because I have been saving it for warmer weather! But seriously though, the color is stunning. 

Last, but not least, is my new camera! After much research, and reading reviews, I decided to upgrade to the Canon T3i. My close friend also has this camera, and so that helped me to decide on the T3i. (The T4i and the 60D were contenders.) This baby came in the mail on Monday, and the picture quality is incredible! I just love how it focuses on the subject, and blurs the background beautifully. I have been playing around with the settings, and learning how to use a DSLR for the first time. (I'm getting fancy y'all...) I'm still waiting on another lens to arrive in the mail, which I'm looking forward to trying out because I heard it takes great fashion blog photos. I'm super excited to take this camera with me when I travel this summer, and I'm the image quality on my blog will improve a lot!

Spring break is next week... I can barely contain my excitement!!!

Hope you are all having a fab day. :)

p.s. I would really appreciate any DSLR photography tips!
