Winter Gingham

I went to a golf course to take these shots. It was interesting to me that there were cross-country skiers there as well. One of them was interested in what I was doing and talked to me a little about his camera and photo classes he took. He was nicely bundled up while I was trying to get through taking all these shots, since it was cold and I didn’t have my coat on. I didn’t feel cold until I saw how warm he looked.
I’m well aware that I’ve worn far too much gingham in my outfit entries, but I can’t help it and have an addiction problem to it.
When I ran out to this spot to take these shots I ran through about 9 inches of snow and it went inside my shoes. I had to take them off and put them back on again but really my feet were pretty frozen. I found a flat area of land and cleared an area there so I could take these. If you are interested in learning how I take my photos, I was interviewed and featured the other day on Crimson Rosella‘s blog. Also a photo of mine was featured on Sunshine and Carousels‘ blog for a hair accessory she made that I wore; the same set had a photo featured as inspiration for Casey’s Elegant Musings blog.
No, these are not victory rolls. . just a few twirls of fun. Sorry they are a little messy, but I had slept in them overnight.
I post too many photos. . .sorry folks. I’m vain.
I apparently didn’t straighten my hair too well, but it is nice to see how long my hair is here. On twitter I stated that I have 9 more inches to go before it gets back to this (was 34″ long).

  1. one can never have too much of a print they love, and this is GORGEOUS! that color doesn't flatter everyone, but you look supernice 🙂 I love the faux victory rolls and the flowers in your hair. I can just imagine how gorgeous you must've looked at your wedding!If I were you I'd totally renew my wedding vows and give a kick ass cool party for all your favorite friends, with your favorite food, favorite music, favorite everything! every person deserves that perfect day 🙂

  2. Very cute gingham dress! I can relate to the snow-in-shoe incident as unless I'm wearing boots, somehow I always end up walking in a huge pile of snow, then have wet, cold feet for the next hour. Speaking of snow, I'm hoping it goes away. Very soon!

  5. The necklace looks so big! I didn't realize it would be that big. Gorgeous! I think the more pronounced a necklace is, the better. I haven't been wearing too many dainty necklaces these days… Gingham looks good on you 🙂 Also those few twirls of fun look so complicated to do! Hey, I know this is probably a snail mail no-no, but I wanted to let you know that I got your lovely letter, and I will soon be responding to it 🙂

  9. Oh I know exactly how you must have felt when taking these photos. Just a few days ago I went out seeing its snowing in my ballerina flats only to open the door and step into 9 inches of fluffy snow. Freezing for 10 minutes in 2 wet wool tights and a wet ballerina I still had no usable photos. LOL. winter weather. :)You look very beautiful though….when it can be managed like this…..photos in the snow turn out extremely beautiful. 🙂 Example…..your photos. Look forward to hearing from you LoveTashrin – A Toronto based personal style blog
