Y’all.

Guess what I just got this weekend?!?! My fancy new camera! (If you’re my facebook friend, you know that my sweet mom bought it for me because she wanted me to be able to take better quality pictures for my blog, which I just thought was the nicest thing.)

Anyway…get excited!  Once I figure this thing out, you might actually be able to tell the real colors I’m wearing!  Here is the first example:

DSC_0028See, those shoes are gold, and my toes are coral!  But wait, there’s more!

Merica and gold shoesLook, it’s a full-body shot!  (Well, my shoes are a little cut-off – one of the kinks I still have to work out), but the colors of my top are completely accurate, and you can even read the tank.  (Please, though, if you don’t get it, don’t tell me. The lady at Starbucks who asked me if “Merica” was a brand and if I was a runner already disillusioned me about humanity enough for one day.)

So, the future is looking bright over here at Tastefully Trendy.  As I mentioned, I’m still figuring things out (i.e., where to position the camera, how to focus the timer shots, the all-important collage issue…), and I also have some phone outfits still left to showcase, but these accurate color photos are the next big thing, and I’m excited!

Oh, and of course, I would be remiss to not mention the occasion for this outfit – Memorial Day.  There is nothing that chokes me up faster than honoring our military and our country.  Thank you to all who have paid the ultimate price and who have otherwise served.  I hope all of you reading enjoyed your holiday, and God Bless America!
