It can most definitely be awkward taking photos on campus out in the open. I think for any of us public photos can be a burden! I've learned throughout the years though that explaining what I'm ACTUALLY doing is just too hard and complicated. So, I usually just make something up that sounds more simple than I'm taking pictures of my outfit for my personal style blog and posting them for all the internet to see? Yeah, not so typical. Today a girl came up to me while I was taking these photos and asked if I was a photography major. Rather than explaining my speall, I just told her; " No, I'm not a photography major, but let's just pretend I am because that's a lot less strange than what I'm doing now." Her and I both had quite a good chuckle :)

Last night was the first worship session for NAVS this semester and it was just as wonderful as I could have hoped. It was strange for me to think back at this time last year; where I had not given my life to Christ yet. I think about how burdened I was just by life, and I want to go back and reassure that Lauren that soon (October!) all of her fears and past will melt away and she will be given a new life! Crazy that I didn't know what was in store for me yet and all of the blessings that would follow.

I have a four day weekend starting tomorrow; should be great! I'm thinking about trying out the pumpkin spice lattes that are back at Starbucks, going on a photo adventure, and getting out in the last bits of sunshine of summer before it starts getting cool and crisp ♥

With much love, Lauren.

These colors are so pretty and I love how you tied your sweater :) Now I want a pumpkin spice latte too haha.

Oooh I love that dress! I always want to layer sweaters over my dresses to remix them but can never quite make it work. You look lovely. Also, I reaaaaally hate taking photos in public, and I can't even imagine keeping it up in a collegiate setting! I'm not quite ready for fall yet, but all things pumpkin make me a little more excited.

I love the pastels! They're so lovely. We have Navs at my university also, though I haven't checked them out yet. I don't know that I could do photo shoots on campus with thousands of students staring, but kudos to anyone brave enough to do it. ;)

Your outfit is absolutely beautiful. I love the mix of pastels!

Your response to picture taking is awesome. Made me laugh!

Hannah Gottlieb-Graham said...

Ahh I'm definitely nervous about how I'll ever take any outfit photos in college! I guess I'll just have to get over my embarrassment and work with my tripod in public! Love your pastel outfit :)

Something my English teacher showed us that helped me in my writing: To see if your pronouns are correct, try taking yourself out of the sentence!

So, for example, taking yourself out of
"Her and I had a good chuckle."
just leaves you with...
"Her had a good chuckle."
Oops! That doesn't sound right! It would be
"She had a good chuckle."
So therefore it should be
"She and I had a good chuckle."

Hope that helps!

Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog Lauren, I really appreciate it! Love the purple and the pearls, so pretty! I have a question about NAVS and I'm hoping you could help me out! I'm a Kent student too, but I'm an online student. Can I still come to meetings? I live in the Cleveland area so Kent's not a terribly far drive, but I wasn't sure if it was only an on campus student event.
Thanks!

I can already admit that I've had three pumpkin spice lattes in the last 48 hours. I think I have a problem! I love the pastel perfectness in this outfit. That dress is so very pretty!

Love your outfit, it looks really cute and i love your lipstick. Such a beautiful colour.

I'm so looking forward to fall, not only for having loads of pumpkin spice lattes but also for wearing my tights again and my new booties ;)
