I am sofa king proud of these pictures.
Yeah I am well aware that I forgot to smile in any of them, I had some issues keeping myself in frame (?) and you can't really see what I'm wearing. But that light. You know that golden hour that is everyone's favorite part of the day because everything is all yellow and looks like a vintage photograph that was brought to life? I set out to capture it with this shoot! I live at the bottom of a hill and we really don't get any of the beautiful light this time of day, so instead I drove about 5 minutes up the road to a field that I don't think belongs to anyone.
I was also rockin the hipster look today with my cutoff overalls, thick framed glasses, and beanie. I've been called a hipster on occasion (by people who don't know what a hipster is). I am not cool enough to deserve the title at all... I only found out about Vampire Weekend when they had a music video on MTV my senior year! Also I don't smoke weed.
I have been addicted to spikes lately. Desperately searching for something that will make me look cooler than I am! Maybe I am secretly longing for people to scoff and mutter "hipster" as I walk by!
overalls, purse (if you can call it that... it's a glorified wallet on a string): thrifted
shirt: TJ Maxx, DIY'd into a crop top
beanie, shoes: Target
socks: Old Navy
bee pin: for sale in my shop!
If you've ever wanted to pull over and take pictures on the side of the road but never did for fear of people thinking you're a weenie, I highly recommend it. I've never regretted it, and it's kind of a rush! Once a friendly old guy asked if I was having car trouble, but that's the only time anyone's ever stopped.
I left my car door open this time, and a little buggy flew into my car. It somehow wedged itself into the crevice where the windshield meets the dashboard and it kept buzzing, trying to fly out. I was eyeing it warily, mentally preparing myself to help it out with a piece of paper or something when I got home, but it managed to crawl it's way on out and flew right at me! I don't know where it went, but it wasn't in my hair (my first priority) so I hope it got out of my car safely.
I've been using my Mom's Canon Rebel camera all summer. But I'm saving up for my own so it won't break my heart when I go back to school! Any recommendations?
