Distressed denim outfit

forever 21
Hello friends, did you guys have a great weekend?, whether just unwinding at home or doing some fun activities?
The outfit am posting was my favorite this weekend, I wore the comfiest American Eagle distressed jeans and my black and white peplum top from forever 21. I am not big into jeans so I had never honestly bought anything from AE, and the first pair I happened to get are like a dream. I usually wear leggings mostly and this pants feel like leggings honestly, so comfy.

This weekend my fiancĂ© and I got to go see Pippin the play and Oh brother! it was amazing. The broadway actors and actresses on the play are so talented and the plot was amazing, I was hooked from start to finish (just so you know the last play I saw…I fell asleep….am not naming names haha). So if you guys like plays or are looking for something fun to do, Pippin is highly recommended.

Have a lovely Monday ladies and gents, and thanks for stopping by.

Doing your own engagement photos

     Ian and I recently did our engagement photos, and I decided it would be fun to do it ourselves vs a professional photographer. I know hiring someone would have probably yielded better quality photos but we both are very happy with the photos we got.

Reasons I did this:

1. Engagement sessions are usually a good way to choose a wedding photographer and kind of bond/be comfortable with them, and also get engagement photos (duh), but our wedding will be in Kenya so we won’t meet the photographer until a few weeks before the wedding so it wouldn’t have been helpful in that way

2. It’s fun and a good learning process for me because I love photography 

3. We saved some cash and got good use out of my DSLR 

 Wondering how we did it?, if you are a blogger you have probably used a tripod and self timer technique before, for non-bloggers, yes we used a tripod and self timer (you can use a remote but I hate remotes)

I used Ian to focus and kind of frame the photo, clicked the shutter and ran to pose haha…..it was fun, we had some good laughs

We chose a less populated site at the park close to us(with occasional joggers and dog walkers) – it is easier to naturally pose without onlookers and a good way to avoid photo bombers

  
  
  
  
We had a casual and a dress up session, took us about an hour and a half. We did lots of walking though, since the 2 sites are kind of far apart. Took about 67 good photos haha, I think a professional photographer will do about 300 takes or even more, so don’t gasp at the 67 takes

I think we did fairly well for a first, what do you guys think?

One day I walked into Forever XX1 and there was literally a whole entire room full of Mickey Mouse clothing, I couldn’t just walk away you know ha, so I snugged this cute sweatshirt. It was perfect for today’s dull and chilly weather, casual and comfortable for running errands. My shorts are DIY from old “mom jeans” and I wore them today for the first time and I cannot be happier…
Even though warm weather is fun and easy, I was kind of missing chillier days so I could layer up a bit and this day was perfect to wear my tights with shorts. I hope you guys are having an awesome week so far, happy hump day
