St. Patrick’s Day.

So, as you probably guessed by the title, this is what I wore for St. Patrick’s day. I didn’t want to go overboard with all-green (I could have. I’ve got green tights, this skirt, and a few green sweaters… or I just bought green pants), and this skirt originally came with a pink belt, so I had to wear the pink tights.

This skirt is also part of tomorrow’s tutorial on how to shop like a genius. (Yes. I am calling myself a genius. y’know. Not that I’m vain or anything. Hehe.) I won’t spoil it for you, but this and three other skirts were part of a  pretty smart purchase move on Friday. I’m so glad I bought them!

I did a lot of fence-sitting for this outfit shoot. And to get to the fence, Mr. Owl and I had to trudge through a field and some pretty smushy grass. By the time we got to a good location, my feet were soaked through and my shoes were a wee bit muddy.

And also, I stood by a pond… which was also mushy.

It was worth it, though. I absolutely love these pictures! I am pretty sure that my man is the best photographer I know of. And he’s mine. One of the many reasons why he’s perfect for me is his photography skills. I don’t even have to teach him how to take my outfit pictures (mostly.) He already knows how to take fantastic photographs.

While we were out in this field, I also climbed said fence. It was a dangerous feat, and I was probably in peril of re-injuring my ankle (which has not fully healed yet), but I managed to conquer the fence! By which I mean… I didn’t fall off.

Aren’t I graceful?

Y’know, other than the constant tripping, the ankle-injuring, the spilling, and the ability to snort when laughing.

I think Mr. Owl and I have finally gotten into the flow of outfit-picture taking. I am feeling less and less self-conscious about having a person take my pictures, and he has gotten it so that I don’t even have to crop the pictures (he’s used to taking a further-away shot of things) when I edit them. And most days (except today), I don’t even have to edit them very much.

Not to say that these pictures weren’t fantastic before editing, but I felt like giving them a more country-girl feel.  Sometimes, the urge just hits me.

And in case you didn’t notice, this shirt has the Cheshire cat on it. It’s one of my favorites.

St. Patrick’s day was also the day that I checked my subscribers (and this is just email-subscribers) and noticed that, at the end of the day, I had hit 615 subscribers… and they just keep coming. Sunday alone, I gained 20 new followers. Where are you all coming from?

I am considering starting up some sponsorship opportunities, but I have no idea how to go about this, so if you’re a fashion blogger and you have sponsors and advice, please let me know! As well, if you’re someone who would like a little ad on the side of my blog, I’d love to consider you as soon as I figure out some fair rates and how to go about the whole sponsorship deal.

I hope you all have a beautiful Monday!

And, I don’t say this enough: thank you for reading, commenting, and being the loveliest readers and friends a girl could ever have. I may not reply to comments in a timely fashion, but I read and appreciate every single one!
