'Outdoorsy' is not typically a word people use to describe me. Sure, I love being outside when the weather is nice (read: at least 70 degrees). Chilling on a sandy beach somewhere is my idea of heaven. But the ‘let’s-go-on-a-5-mile-hike’ type of outdoorsy? Not so much. I haven’t been camping since 6th grade. The tent Brian got a “great deal” on 2 years ago remains in its original packaging. But, I’ve spent more time outdoors since having kids than I probably have in my whole life, except perhaps when I was a kid. And you know what? I love it.
It was during one of those walks that I found it: the green door. How I missed it before is beyond me; I’ve lived across the street from it for almost 7 years. But there it was, in all its rustic glory. I became very excited because I knew I’d found a new location for outfit photos. The creative wheels started turning as we wrapped up our outdoor adventures.
For its inaugural photo shoot, I chose my new Tobi shift dress and floral Luichiny boots. I love the tie-front part of the dress, since it gives enough coverage for me to feel comfortable but still shows off a little skin. The floral boots – well, there’s not much to say except that they are me, in shoe form. Flora waited patiently as I took my photos. I think we’ll take a new route on our next nature walk. Who knows what other hidden gems we’ll discover?
