    Five Tips to Improve Your Blog Photos

    Five Tips to Improve Your Blog Photos Today while editing my photos, I realized that I have improved VASTLY over the past nine years of blog photography. So I thought I would share my five tips to improve your blog photos, using my own photos as a base. The thing is, though, neither setup is a bad one. Both locations have pros and cons. Keep in mind that I’m not pitting these against each other(though I DO have a favorite): I am utilizing them to show things you can improve while taking blog photos. Also, keep in mind that while I do consider myself a professional, I am entirely self-taught…

    Harry Potter Vibes || Autumn Capsule Day Three

    Settling Into a Mood This outfit is not at all what I thought I would wear for day three of the autumn capsule wardrobe challenge. When I first started putting together the outfit, I had a plaid blazer with this skirt. It is a navy blue, with a muted red being the main accent, and alongside that is a small yellow stripe. In my head, the combination seemed perfect. But when I tried it on it was far too extra for my  mood. I was feeling much more like wearing something that said “I’m wandering the moors in a dramatic dress.” Unfortunately, I don’t have a dramatic dress – but…

    Vintage Autumn Capsule Wardrobe || Day Two

    Creating an Autumn Capsule Wardrobe This past week I realized that all of the clothes I grabbed to take with me for our temporary stay at a friend’s house are semi-coordinated to create an autumn capsule wardrobe! I didn’t do this intentionally. When I packed, I was literally just grabbing colors I thought I might wear for a week or so stay. That week has turned into two, and will be at least two more. So what I have is all I have at the moment. I laid it all out on my bed, and realized… I could create an entire month of outfits from the 14 pieces I have!…

    Jack’s House || Autumn Fashion and Historic Places

    In the fields of our property, behind a thicket of evergreens and underbrush, there is a tiny little house called Jack’s House. It’s no more than ten feet long by six feet wide, barely big enough to hold a bed and a few shelves, but somehow it was the residence of Jack, who was the caretaker of the old farm in the early 1900’s. I don’t know much about Jack. I don’t know whether he was old or young, whether he was married or a bachelor, whether he was employed fairly or poorly. But his house still stands today, with an old and rusting horseshoe over the entrance for good…

    Autumn Blues || Feat Donna London Vintage

    As I write this we have finally received the go-ahead to move into our home. While we aren’t closing on the sale just yet, we do get to rent from the owner while everything gets sorted out. The lot lines need moving, which could take months, and we don’t want to be moving and remodeling in November! Renting while we wait is the perfect solution, and the sweet woman we are buying the home from is more than eager to have us live there and do whatever we want to do to make it home. So these past two or so weeks we have been doing the necessary renovations in…
