Dress: c/o ChiChi   Heels: Just Fab
Earrings: c/o Shop Lately   Bangle: Forever 21
My "I look stupid to that oncoming car, don't I?" expression
Sorry about the excess photos in today's post, but I am in love with this dress from ChiChi, and I couldn't help but show it off! Paired with my classy heels and some simple jewelry, I felt like a more polished version of myself. The sheer paneled top and dark embroidered design at the hemline retained a distinct style that reminds me of what I'm drawn to, although the pastel pink shade and sweetheart bustline are definitely not my typical look. However, they certainly can become part of it after this! 

This dress is absolutely lovely and just the feel of the tulle underlay swishing about my legs, the nipped in waist, and sheer panel make me feel beautiful. Have you ever found a dress that does that for you? Consider checking out ChiChi's for your next investment in a confidence boost!

Kirsten and I traversed downtown to get these photos, and ended up in front of a church. Isn't it a lovely setting? Haha, I felt a bit silly though with every passing car and gaping passenger that stared at me. Umm, it's Senior photos? Right. That's always my fallback excuse.

Speaking of, a girl from my old high school got in contact with me to do her Senior photos, and I'm super excited to work with her! It's going to be one amazing session, and I'll probably end up sharing a few tidbits from the shoot once they're done.

Getting paid to do something I love? Why yes please.
That's all about finding your calling in life!

 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

p.s. - ever notice that people tend to stare more at one person having her photo taken than when it's a group? I always wonder what they're thinking... :)
