Daily Outfit: Purple Rain

I never meant to cause you any sorrow.  I never meant to cause you any pain.  I only wanted one time to see you laughing.  I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain.  Okay. I am dating myself here. but I LOVED Prince back in highschool.  Strange hair, but good singer!  Today as you can probably guess, IT'S RAINING.  I have my trusty list of places where there are overhangs for photoshoots and this is what you get today!!  My self imposed photography homework this week is to only use the Apeture setting on the camera and voila! I have already learned some new things this morning.  I'm working from home this morning so am sitting here with my nice purple tights on and a warm cup of earl grey tea.  One thing you should know about me, is, while I LOVE the taste and smell of coffee, I don't drink it.  Too acidic.  Not good for your health.  Earl Grey is my drink of choice. Especially organic.

I had the BEST day yesterday.  I did a photoshoot for my girlfriend who I will be profiling on this blog very soon.  We got so many fun photos it was awesome.  And I LOVED being the photographer.  And I appreciate everyone's comments from my "Saturday FAT and not good photographer" rant... LOL I really had that going on in my head and thought I would share more of my real human side with you!!  You ladies rock!!

So, by the way, not to rub it in or anything, but this tunic/dress was only $6 at my favorite thrift store.. yabba dabba doooo!!  Have a happy Monday and for any of you who do NOT have rain today. SHAME ON YOU!!  MWAH xoxo j
