Remotely Controlled

As a Christmas gift to myself, I stopped in at a camera shop and picked up a remote control for my camera. In the past, I have been limited to self-timer shots in front of walls so that my camera would have something to focus on before I ran in front of it. I am looking forward to being more in focus and trying more detailed and artsy shots. But give me time - I am still quite an amateur.

Now if only I had a remote control for the weather so I could get a little more natural light in my life...

I stopped in at my local Ann Taylor to check out the 50% off post-Christmas sale, and walked out with a pair of bootcut jeans (I am working on hemming them), this new sweater, and a cami to go under it. The sweater originally almost fit, but not quite. The shoulders were just a little too roomy. As I debated whether to give it a shot, the SAs played with Luke and he stacked Legos (they keep them in a nearby fitting room - brilliant!).

I ended up deciding to try and shrink it, since with the sale it was about $15 and I really liked it. Plus, I had the cami for underneath if the neckline was still too low. After two rounds in the washer and dryer (it is a hand wash/lay flat to dry garment), it fits me just the way I had hoped. Awesome!

These ankle boots are from the post-Christmas clearance sale at Kohl's. I was on the hunt for a pair of boots with a wedge heel for everyday...and I ended up with three! I'll post on the others soon.
