If I were a good blogger I’d have an outfit up at 9 am on the dot. But really I’m just a blogger who slept in today. But may I point out that my post is only 6.5 hours late — not that bad, right? 

I’ve been on the lookout  for a good hedge to shoot in front of. (It’s true, my brain is now trained to look for photo locations. Give me a blank wall and I’ll give you an outfit.) On our morning walk today we finally found what I’ve been looking for for years — a green wall of leaves. Isn’t it so pretty? If we take photos here everyday this week, you’d be cool with it right?

    So boho and cute. How funny! I am house sitting and I noticed the prettiest wall of greenery filled with colorful pink flower and I instantly though… outfit pictures here would be so adorable. I was so excited when I saw it and I will most definitely be taking advantage of the neighbors flower wall this week!

    So pretty. Im the same way trained for pic locations. Except in Chicago I may never find a wall of Green. even a blank wall is hard to find. Most of the time Im afraid I'll get shot in the places i take pics! The lighting is so perfect and the green is a perfect background! Great find!

    It's a lovely hedge. A stunning hedge. The only problem I foresee would be if you shot an outfit here that was camouflage. Then it would be just your face and hands, and that would be WEIRD, kind of like this comment.

    It sounds like you're looking for compliments when you say things like, "if I was a good blogger". And then you go on and on for opportunities for positive comments to be made. You are great at what you do. So creative and so unique. Stop acting like you don't know what you're doing. You have so much to be proud of-own it and quit whining.
