Closet Re-discoveries: Emerald and Leopard

First off, I just want to say that I'm so proud of Aaron for taking these photos. He literally just picked up the camera on Thursday, looked at a few websites for some example shots, and this is what he's been able to capture. On Thursday, he didn't even know how to hold a camera, and was dropping the camera lens cap all over the place. Now he's taking these amazing pictures. He's even starting to say things like: "Come on, I need some more attitude... ATTITUDE!" (As he's sprawled on the ground, taking cephalad shots)

I've been having so much fun with this blog these past several days. I'm glad this is something Aaron and I can do together, plus it looks like he's really starting to enjoy photography.

So this is one of the dresses that I've been eager to wear, but it's been hanging in my closet for months. The last time I wore it was in the dressing room of the store I bought it from. I love how green looks with leopard print, and its a great transition into fall wear. The scarf is one of my favorites I got last year from

Hope you guys are enjoying these closet posts! I'm having a blast, I think I'll be able to survive this no shopping for one year promise. (I promised our family I won't shop for clothes for a whole year- to cut back on some spending) It's a huge commitment!
