Too sunny

[Summer 30 for 30: Outfit 1]
Striped tank: Karen Kane
Cardigan: Hazel (hand-me-down)
Shoes: Target

Please excuse my weird grimace in these photos. It was overcast when I found the perfect spot to take pictures (look! you can see Lake Washington! and the Seattle skyline! and an itty bitty little Space Needle!) and right as I took out my camera, the sun came out. I waited around to see if the sun would go back behind the clouds, but no luck. I'm squinting in every single picture, and unfortunately these are the best I could pull from the batch.

Right after I wrapped up and was driving away, the sun went back behind the clouds. OF COURSE.

  1. Although you are squinting, you still look great! Love the stripes paired with the green cardi.  And your backdrop is amazing!

  3. These are gorgeous photos! The sun has actually made the background look kinda grainy, vintage. I dunno photography terms, so I'm trying my hardest to describe it. It looks great! And you look great! Those trousers are amazing on you!

  12. I love how the sun makes the pictures look.. the colors are so much brighter and crisper, but then I'm all squinty-eyed. Maybe I should just wear sunglasses 8)

  13. Easy for you to say because I'll bet YOU never have to deal with squinty-eyes in your photos! :)

    But thanks! I love the view from up there. :)

  14. It's actually up by my parents house on a hill in Bellevue. It's mostly residential so there's not many places to actually take pictures.. I was lucky to find a spot that wasn't blocked by any houses :)

  15.  Apparently the sun has a sense of humor. Not appreciated. :)

    You look fantastic in those pants, and I love the pop of green in the cardigan. Yay for stripes, too!

  16. There is no such thing as too sunny!  I love this color combination. I'm a sucker for stripes and you know how much I dig those jeans. Love it!

  17. Ooh, what a great view!  At least this isn't a problem you have to deal with too often...whereas I feel like I only see a few overcast days a year!

  18. The only time the sun shows up for me is when I want to take photos or I am at work. Boo, sun, boo. At least your outfit is killer! I'm a sucker for stripes and the color of your cardigan rocks.

  22. Haha, this is why I crop out my head! Or wear sunglasses now, even when it's not sunny out :) Seattle is beautiful. I don't know why I'm always picturing a bustling scene, but I like your outdoorsy pics. It perfectly matches your green cardigan.

  29. I know! I LOVE the sun when I'm not trying to take pictures. It's just that I prefer an overcast sky so I don't get so many harsh shadows :( But of course it only comes out when I'm working or can't enjoy it!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Haha! I should get some cuter sunglasses. I tried taking pictures in my sunglasses the other day and I realized they weren't very flattering on my face shape. Time to go shopping I guess 8)

    The city itself is more bustling, but we live out in the suburbs so there's lots of green :)

  34. I especially like the last photo. Your photos are always excellent, but usually softer in tone...(probably due to Seattle clouds!) it's interesting to see such a bright photo! It feels kind of L.A.! :) I need a green cardigan!
