New light: wrap slipdress, striped tee, cutout booties, and envelope clutch

I mentioned last Friday that you might notice a change around, dear readers; and now I have to ask…can you see what it is??

Robin and I finally invested (that’s truly the word!) in a DSLR camera setup…and this is our very first photo shoot using our new equipment!!

Of course – as with anything new – there’s quite a learning curve involved; Robin had some time to familiarize himself with all the bells and whistles while I was in Toronto, but working with, ahem, a “model” in a real-life situation is just a little bit different.

Still, I’m totally confident that our new camera and lens will have us showing off my ensembles in a better and better light as the weeks progress!!  And in the meantime, I hope you’ll let me know what you think of our first attempt…not to mention today’s slipdress and striped tee combination, too!!

P.S.  This breezy dress was a last minute purchase from Forever 21 just before I headed off on my trip…and was I ever glad I took it with me; it was the perfect choice for Toronto’s sweltering temperatures!!

    Ohhhhhhhhh Monika these photos so, so beautiful – I think you'd look stunning anyway as you, the outfit and the location are gorgeous anyway, BUT!! The DSLR is obviously just enhancing it. You must be so excited!!

    I've been meaning to comment for ages to say how I love your hair – the colour is so pretty and just looks exquisite with your skin tone. Just beautiful. And from now on you'll just look even more beautiful!! 🙂

    Aww…thank you SO much, dearest Catherine!! It's always a bit scary trying something new – Robin was just starting to feel really comfortable with our "old" camera! – but we both know we'll be able to get way more creative with the equipment we have now!! 🙂 And my hair colour has faded somewhat since it was freshly done, but I have an appointment for a refresh in a couple of weeks…or who knows?? I might go in an entirely different direction again!! XOXO
