The one with the sunglasses pouch.

This past weekend my cousin Jenny graduated high school. Each graduate was asked to decorate their own table with photos and memorabilia so people could walk around during the reception and get a quick snapshot of their school years. I had way too much fun helping out with the decorating of the poster board and decided that the table needed something extra...Enter the Bakerella's graduation candy pops.

Clearly these aren't quite up to the Bakerella's standards, but I'm happy with how they turned out. :)

Here's what I wore to the graduation (also, did you see that you can now take an extra 25% off sale items from Anthro?? Kind of bummed that I could have gotten this skirt for even cheaper).

I usually take photos first thing in the morning, but the evening light is so soft and flattering. Those who love photography - do you have a favorite time of day to shoot?

I hope your week is going great so far & thanks for the kind comments on the makeup tutorial! Those things are so awkward to make, but I'm really glad some of you found it useful. :)

That is all.


  1. I love those little graduation pops. My sister graduates from high school next week...maybe I should make some, too :) That orange shirt is lovely. I love pairing orange and teal/turquoise. So fun for summer.

  2. Evening - usually from about an hour before sunset to about 30 minutes after the sun actually sets - is my absolute favorite time to take pictures.

  3. That outfit might be my favorite of yours yet. I absolutely love it! And the earrings, too! You're too adorable, seriously.
