Windy Days & Sweater Dresses

Sometimes fashion blogging can be pretty tricky. Sometimes taking pictures is quick and easy but other times it's a battle. The day we took these pictures it was ridiculously windy. We had originally planned on taking this pictures at a place with a gorgeous mountain view but between my hair being flown all over the place and not being able to open my eyes without them watering like crazy, we gave up and decided to go to lunch instead. Right before we went into the restaurant we decided that the building was blocking enough of the wind that we could take a few quick pictures. 

And that, my friends, is the epic and super interesting tale of how these pictures came to be. Now you may continue down to see the different ways I tried to control my hair. 

Wait, one last thing. This sweater dress I'm wearing was $12.95 at H&M. Cool right? Ok, carry on.

  5. Great blog! New reader from Three-Fer Thursday link up! Love the outfit and your bag! I just love getting pic's in the wind.... probably why I tend to take them with my shoe "racks" as the back drop.
