A blurry photo always has to squeeze its way in since I started using Manual mode. Months from now when I look back on these posts, I hope I will notice a difference in how much my photography has improved- or not. 




For the longest time, I had no idea how I was going to style this skirt. The pattern was intimidating yet I was drawn to it. I bought it months ago but every solid colored top I have just didn't feel right (some weird basic v-neck tops I have from Old Navy- they do nothing for me). Then, the other day, I found this knit top, immediately loved it and ordered it. I didn't even think of what I'd wear it with, I just love orange- it's one of my favorite colors (in high school I was known as something along the lines of "orange girl" and now I realize that sounds more like an Oompa Loompa than anything). Anyway, long story short, I kind of like how these two pieces look together. They were super comfortable to wear as well (luckily, I chose to wear shorts underneath- the wind got insane almost right away, causing me to have many Marilyn Monroe moments- see what I mean here). I know a lot of people don't like orange so I've gotta ask...do you?

  1. I just posted via my phone via clicking your link on Facebook but now I'm not sure it worked! I really love these photos Victoria, they're so Summery and happy! Well done to you using manual mode, I'm not brave enough unless I'm experimenting (usually trying to take photos of the moon!). I love this whole outfit, the orange and blue go together so well and I really like the pattern in your skirt. I'm slowly trying to embrace colours more and orange is a colour that's really grown on me in the last couple of years. Also, I've been racking my brains thinking of what type of shoes I can take on holiday with my ordinary sandals (the ankle strap doesn't go with everything) & I think you just have me the answer - jelly shoes!!!
