Taking In Sunshine!

It was FABULOUS weather today!!  I can't believe it after days of burning hot temperatures and drizzling wet days. I celebrated the return of amazing temperatures with a nice run and a beautiful dress!
  

  These photos were taken in my own garden. As you can tell, we have a lot of green in our backyard! Most of the trees were possible thanks to my neighbors (haha) but the long grass is all thanks to me and my family. We haven't cut our lawn in weeks, but it's okay since it adds to my nature theme here. The grass is already passed my ankles! 



I recently just downloaded windows live photo gallery so I could be able to edit my photos before placing them on my blog. I'm not going to do much editing except the brightness and contrast. More or less, I will be using "auto-adjust." I took a photography class last year, but I can't seem to find a good photoshop online to play with levels and curves so I'll just stick with this. I miss the days of picnik!



It feels like summer is going by so quickly as I am looking through these photos. I'm pretty sure it's already halfway over and it feels like it just begun. Speaking of that, I have summer assignments due soon. Ohhh well... Back to my outfit!

The dress I am wearing has ruffles on the front and is slit open cut in the back! When I first brought the dress, I thought that the back of the dress was the front. I realized later that it wasn't, but honestly it can be worn that way if you wanted.
This dress has many colors ranging from your normal pinks and reds to patches of coral and teal! It reminds me a lot of flowers and lily pads for some reason. The dress itself is super comfortable and perfect for a nice summer day! I paired this dress with some black flats and a sparkly pink bracelet.


DRESS- from kohls
SHOES- from forever 21
