What I'm Wednesday

J.Crew Geo Brushstroke Blouse on sale  //  Loft Jogger skirt sold out  similar | similar in black | similar mini  //  Boden Lace-up Flats on sale  //  J.Crew Parker Crossbody  //  Loft Sunglasses

What I'm excited for: My upcoming backpacking trip in a few weeks in the Uintas with my whole family.  This is a big deal because my mom and sister don't usually go for roughing it to this extent, but they agreed so there's no turning back now!  Freeze dried food and sleeping on the ground here I come!  Really though, I love it.

What I'm awaiting: This neutral rug for my closet room, because the carpet in this house is disgusting. And ugly.  So ugly.

What I'm planning to wear on repeat: These new Kendra Scott Adair filigree earrings.  They seriously go with everything and are super lightweight.  Next I think I need this ring.  PS- if you want a coupon code for 15% off your purchase at Kendra Scott, let me know!  I've got a stack of cards with unique coupon codes :)

What I'm still not comprehending: That I won a $1000 (yes THREE zeros) 7fam giftcard on instagram. WHAT?!  I have a shopping cart full of goodies already, and it doesn't even make a dent in that amount.  I might've squealed in the Panda Express drive through when I got the DM on Instagram. WOOOO!  I am set on getting these winter white skinnies (so perfect for Fall!) and these super worn boyfriend jeans, and trying to decide on the perfect dark wash skinnies to replace my Paige jeans that bagged out ridiculously after just a few washes...

What I'm deciding between: Mirrorless cameras and extension tubes.  I want something lighter and more compact than my DSLR (especially with the upcoming backpacking trip), but I don't want to sacrifice too much control and just get a point and shoot.  With the help of my crazy skilled photographer father-in-law, I decided a mirrorless camera and an extension tube would be the perfect combination.  I'm considering the Sony a6000, FujiFilm X-A2, and the Samsung NX500.  I was totally sold on the Sony a6000 (we're talking thousands of raving reviews on the interwebz, and the father-in-law recommended it) but then I discovered you can't flip the LCD screen around to see it from the Front.  E thinks I'm ridiculous for fussing about this, but when you 1) take a lot of your own blog photos and 2) take a lot of group selfies, this matters mucho.  If I'm gonna drop that kind of moolah, I want EVERYTHING about the camera to be perfect.   Am I being unrealistic?  Any recommendations???

Oh and sorry my skirt is wrinkled.  I steamed my skirt and then promptly drove to dinner and sat there awhile, which does not bode well for the wrinkling...  But dinner was delicious so it was worth it ;)

  3. Swooning over those orange shoes!
    I've never bought the "grown-up" Boden shoes. Do you find them comfy and a decent quality for the price?
    I could be tempted by these!
