when you decide to take blog photos on the roof…


As much as I would love gorgeous backgrounds for all my blog photos, oftentimes that just doesn’t happen. Unfortunately, our street is not cute (at all), but we do what we can to make it work. So, when Jean suggested we take photos on the roof last night, I figured, why not? (Don’t mind the dirty water puddles haha) We have a flat roof off the back of our house…which is actually how we had to move my mattress in. (Imagine my dad and brother standing in the back of a pickup truck launching the mattress to me and my friends on the roof…real life).

Lets talk about this shirt for a quick second. There are some major pros & cons I need to share with you guys!

Pro – its on sale for $12.50

Con- you need to size WAY up…I’m wearing a large

Pro – ruffles & stripes – does it get better?

Con –  when you sweat the color in the armpit bleeds…I’m taking it to the dry cleaner this week to figure out what the deal is.

but its so darn cute for $12.50

That’s all friends! Enjoy your day & thank you for reading 🙂

    Aw, it’s too bad that your top is defective. It sure is cute!

    I feel you on the limited backdrops for blog photos. It’s not often that I’m anywhere “pretty” AND ready to snap photos. The struggle is SO real.

    I confess that the roof photos make me semi uncomfortable but that’s just because I have an issue with heights, lol. I hope that you can the shirt fixed because it’s so cute and looks great on you. Good luck!

    You look so cute! Maybe the dry cleaners may have a way to fix the problem, $12.50 is a steal for a cute top like that! And how can you take photos on your roof?! I’d be terrified!

    Shame about that top as it looks cute! 🙂

    You’re brave for taking photos on the roof too, I’m terrified of heights so I’d never do that!
