I'm just now getting over my cold, or whatever it really was, so I finally made it to work today.  I needed something comfortable and somewhat cheerful today, and this color combo did the job. 
Since it should be raining today by the time I get home, outdoor pictures probably won't happen. So I bring you another post of mirror pictures.  
I'm looking into getting a new camera. The truth is - I like my mirror pictures better than some of my outdoor pictures.  Crazy, I know.  It's been so gray here that outdoor pictures haven't been turning out too great. 
Mr. is leaning towards this camera...and I want this one (I should win this one).

Any camera recommendations? 

Thanks for reading! 


  1. very cute!
    I love this color combo!

  2. i'm loving my jcrew tees, but having a hard time getting a good tuck going on them! thoughts?

  3. My point-and-shoot is a Canon; my newer camera is a Sony... so I have to say go for the Canon DSLR because I believe they have quite a selection of lenses. Besides, a new camera will just mean more practice photoshoots outdoors ;) Should be fun!

  4. Your color combo today was very spring, much needed on a yucky rainy day!

    My bf is an engineer that researches things like crazy before he buys them. He has a Canon camera and is obcessed with it. My little pocket camera is a pick Canon and it's great. Good luck!

  5. I just purchased a Canon T3i and I love it! You should really get that one. They have them for a really good price on

  6. Glad you're feeling better Lilly! Love the outfit as usual, I'm obsessed with mint right now! That camera you're considering looks pretty amazing. My H bought me the Canon Rebel T3i for Christmas and I love it a lot.

  7. I've been DYING to get a new camera as well! I've heard really good things about the Rebel...I've been eying getting one myself. Let us know if/when you guys decide.

    I'm absolutely loving this pastel trend right now & that no one is really waiting for Spring to start showing it off. Great colors!

  8. absolutely love love love that you tell not only where you got your clothes, but where we can get similar stuff!

    pastels are basically what I'm dying over this spring!

    Hope you are totally healed by the weekend : )


  9. glad to hear you're feeling better - nothing like springy pastels to cheer you up! :-)

  10. this is just too cute you have the perfect lil body for those jeans you look perfect !!!

  11. What size is the shirt your wearing ? They only have X-Small in that color and I prefer a small. I'm wondering if the sizes run large ?

  12. I can't get enough of this color. So refreshing. Very nice!

  13. Great minds think alike! I just bought a shirt in the exact same colour, mine's a more loose slouchy fit though. Its just such a nice spring colour, isnt it! It looks lovely on you!

    As for Cameras, I wouldn't go with Sony. They just can't really compete with the likes of Nikon and Canon! I don't think they have such a great lens selection either.

    I actually had a major debate with myself between the Canon your thinking of and the camera I got which is a Nikon D5100. I read sooooo much about the two and they're reeeaaally similar. In the end I went with the Nikon because it has a slightly better sensor in it and most sites that compared the two came to the consensus that it was marginally better on points that mattered to me.

    I'm sure whatever you choose will be great though :)

    Come say hey at!

  14. Girls, thank you for your camera recommendations. Seems many love the Canon :)

    @Neeecoleyy- I got mine in XS just because I wanted it to be fitted. I wouldn't say it runs large, to me it seems pretty true to size.

  15. I love that tee! It looks so soft and comfy. Mint is everywhere, and I LOVE it!

  16. I love this mint green top!

  17. omg, love everything. So happy spring is here. Thanks for sharing. I'd love if you'd check out my interview with Perez Hilton. xo

  18. We love our Canon Rebel!

  19. We love our Canon Rebel!

  20. this colour is gorgeous!!- jade xxx

  21. I'd never thought this colour combination would work.. but it looks really good.
    I don't know why but for a camera I would always prefer a canaon...

    Go for the Canon! You'll thank yourself later. Try looking for it on Amazon. I purchased my Canon 20D from Amazon. Just look for notes that say "camera is like new" "back up camera" "only shot a couple times" That'll tell you the shutter hasn't be used much and it's in good condition.
    If you can, don't use the 18-55 kit lens. That will come with a 3.5-5.5 f stop meaning it will need a lot of light to take a decent picture indoors. If you were to get say a 55mm lens with an f-stop of 2 or less, indoor pictures will be so much easier and sharper.
    I love my 55mm f/1.4 lens. I call it my "plastic fantastic" because it was so cheap compared to other lenses!

    Good luck!

  23. I love all the pastels that are coming out!

    Go for the Canon DSLR. The Rebel is an entry-level camera but it is still fantastic. Plus, Canon has a fantastic range of lens (which is really what makes the difference in photo quality).

  24. So cute! I am so excited for spring and the pretty pastels :-)

    I think the mirror pictures are great but good luck with your new camera purchase- I have a great nikon & husband has an awesome canon powershot but we both use our iphones and camera+ app most of the time these days.

    I am in love with the necklace you're wearing (along with everything else ;P) but I can't find anything like it at F21. I've checked out Target and Charlotte-Russe too.. any suggestions?
