I was born to shop. Can you blame me? Nothing like a low key sweatshirt like this to spruce up an outfit. Plus, who doesn’t get a kick out of this? I’ve gotten so many comments from just wearing this around town. Great to throw on and do some errands in. I also love these railroad stripped jeans from J.Crew Factory they are so soft and perfect for the summer time.

Someone please tell me where the time has gone? I can’t believe it’s already for spring time! Don’t get me wrong I’m so excited for spring I just can’t believe how quickly time has flown by..even in my college career! I’m so excited I finally got to pull down my white jeans from the top shelf of my closet. So consider this my first white jeans post of the year!

Cold Weather Has Arrived

I’m not going to lie…trying to figure out how to dress for cold weather is not my expertise. I’m still trying to get the hang of it…I mean I grew up in Florida…growing up when it would get cold we flocked to uggs, jeans and a long sleeve shirt. Cold weather up in Alabama is a whole different story…No joke. I just got back from class (it’s 16 degrees here) and I had on 5 layers plus a scarf, and a headband. I looked like a total goon!

On Saturday, I made a trip to Birmingham with Parker the writer of Fast Foodie US who also happens to be one of my best friends and sorority sisters for the Birmingham Bloggers brunch! The brunch was hosted at The Nest in historic Avondale, an adorable little spot if you ever want to host a party. I got to see some old friends and make new ones. Of course, we talked about blogging and more blogging but what we learned about was how to photograph food (I’ll share the tips soon). Y’all I had so much fun, I wish y’all could of been there! So, photographing food..how hard can it be.Y’ALL!.I was terrible at it…I’m honestly going to leave the creative food photos to the foodies and stick to fashion. However, it was really fun to learn all about it. Rachel Johnson of StupidGoodRachel, who is a professional food photographer taught us the secret tips. If you check out her blog you’ll see that she has it down pat. I was impressed..I had no idea that there was an art to photographing food. Even though we weren’t all food bloggers at the brunch we still learned how to incorporate these tips (they’re coming I promise) with styling clothes and jewelry. So, that has given me a ton of ideas for new posts…I’m really not the most creative person but I do try so I get an A+ for effort, right?

Ready for the tips???

1. embrace natural lighting

2. shoot from above

3. you can always add on to something, so don’t over do it. i.e don’t overdose on the granola like I did…hence why you don’t see my photo of the yogurt bowl on here…

4. keep it simple when it comes to filters and editing and don’t photograph against a busy surface

5. use #hashtags. if you are a food instagrammer try using the hashtags #f52grams and #eeeeeats. Rachel also suggested to post early in the morning around 8am and at night around 7pm

Anymore questions? You know where to leave the comment 🙂

Elektrik Boutique opened up in downtown Vero Beach just this summer and I’ve really enjoyed being able to shop at a new boutique in my small hometown, especially one that carries Show Me Your Mumu! They sent me this adorable Show Me Your Mumu dress in Nevada Nights to wear to a blogging luncheon that I went to this past weekend in Birmingham! I met with the Alabama bloggers that are apart of the Southern Blog Society and we had a amazing mexican lunch at Cantina filled with a lot of blogging chatter!

 I’m so in love with this dress, it’s flowy and comfortable and I can’t wait to wear it again to the next Alabama home game! This dress is going to be a fall staple in my  closet. It can be dressed up or dressed down and right now with this in between summer and fall weather it’s perfect!

Elektrik Boutique is also located in Ft. Lauderdale on Las Olas Blvd. They carry mens wear as well, so drag your boyfriend shopping with you! They live off the motto: Be Elektrik and carry a wide variety of different lines. They offer Show Me Your Mumu, Gypsy 05, Yumi Kim, JBrand, Dolce Vita and more! Definitely a store that you want to check out if are ever in Vero Beach or on Las Olas Blvd!

They are now offering shopping directly via Instagram all you have to do is pre-register at www.soldsie.com/instagram/elektrikboutique
