Photo Shoot!

(a bad one at that!) I don't like taking pictures of myself! But I do like sharing my FO's with you all, so I have to take the bad with the good - right!

Here's my attempt at getting some pictures of Summertime Tunic today (I would have gone out on my balcony and used my palm tree as a back drop, but the neighbors were sitting in their back yard and I would have felt very self-conscious setting up the tripod out there! - so my bedroom with plain walls it is).

First off, I tried to take one of those self-pics in the bathroom mirror like I've seen many of you do......

I'm wearing the top with a long cotton white skirt which looked pretty I thought....

.... then I tried it on with jeans and took a shot at that..... I liked this look (and the sunglasses? I just bought them last night so I was trying those out too!)

And just to prove I don't always look 'moody' ~ I smiled on this one :-)

And finally a close up of just the top. The dots on the ribbon are the same color blue/turquoise as the yarn. So there you have it - I'm happy with this FO and I shall be wearing it today to the baby shower that I'm taking 'Little Charmer' to :-)

I really like it and the ribbon does look nice with it too. Sunglasses are a great way to hide your face if you dont really want people to see you too.

It looks really great with both the skirt and jeans! The ribbon is a cool finishing touch.

P.S. I love the glam look with the glasses.
