Bird Watching

Cardigan - Old Navy
Belt - Charlotte Russe
Flower - Charlotte Russe
Leggings - Target
Ballet Flats - Old Navy

Taking pictures is always difficult for me - I don't have a tripod, so I have to find something to set my camera on. Because of this I rarely go further than the park behind my house. The arrival of summer, however, has made my own personal photographer (my friend Christina) more easily accessible. :D
So today the two of us and our little sisters took a long drive through the nearby forest preserve - stopping at the bid watching deck to
a) Try to spot some birds and
b) Get some pictures
The first of these was very unsuccessful, but I the latter turned out very well. My little sister Maddie even helped too; taking the close up picture.

I got this dress at Walmart yesterday. I had wanted the solid black one, but they didn't have any in my size, so I settled for the black and white one - I'm so glad I did, now! I wasn't sure how to style it at first - I thought a plain black belt would look dull - but then I found my flower pin/barrette. The barrette clipped perfectly to the belt and added a really nice flair! After that the rest just fell into place! It was perfect for the weather - not too hot, not to cold - and the most comfortable dress I've ever worn before! Most of the time I didn't even feel like I was wearing a dress! I think - I know I'm in love. <3


  1. Katie, Katie, Katie. Only you would ride a bike in a skirt. (Well, you and one other person!)

    In case I haven't told you this, you have impeccable taste. I never would have thought to put those things together. It looks very French.

    By the way, would you be interested in going to the beach for a photoshoot sometime next week? (Probably Saturday.) Choose a few of your favorite outfits so we'll have some variety. :)


  2. Oh I like that dress the way you belted it and put the pink cardigan with it :) <3 <3 I love it!

  3. This is a really pretty outfit, Katie! I'm glad you decided to have the photos taken at the bird watching place; the background compliments the look. It's all very beautiful. (:


  4. Katie, you look good and I hope you and Christina had a nice time. I was quite keen in knowing more about that Binocular...which company's is that.
