Borrowed Camera and UO Linen Dress

The weather here has been such a teaser lately...it was so warm over the weekend and cooled down significantly by yesterday. Why can't it just be in the 80s the entire summer?? Anyway, I was in my friend Ping's neighborhood on Sunday and she was kind enough to let me borrow her fancy camera and photographer bf to get some blog photos. We also did some shopping afterwards at Urban and J.Crew of course...the beautiful weather gave us an excuse to go to an outdoor mall. haha

It was such a gorgeous day that I wanted to take this linen dress out for a spin that I got from Urban Outfitters. It's actually quite loose on  me around the torso area but nothing a waist-cinching belt can't fix!
Cooperative linen dress from UO (similar) -- thrifted tan belt (similar) -- Banana Republic strappy wedges (similar)
Accessories: tortoise shell sunnies (similar) -- H&M mini spike necklace (similar) -- no name watch (similar) -- H&M braided bracelet (similar) -- thrifted knot bangle (similar) -- oval button earrings (similar)

I think it's time to start looking into getting a new camera because the photo quality on Ping's DSLR is vastly better! The skin glows and the colors are vibrant...makes taking pictures more fun too.

Canon T2i or T3i or a different brand...any opinions?

  1. Very cute dress!  I really like the print!  And I have a canon rebel t31 and it has worked great for me!  But I far from a photo expert :)

    Before reading your post, I thought the background looks familiar =) What a cute summer dress! You're right - DSLR photos look so much better than point-and-shoot. Good luck with your camera search!
