leopard + pink

Skirt: H&M // Blouse: Old Navy // Clutch: Sears // Necklace: Etsy // Sunglasses: HBC // Watch: Michael Kors // Wedges: ?

Remember this post here? Well I've finally got around to re-doing this outfit shoot {yay}. When I saw this skirt at H&M I was shocked that it was only $15 regular price, so I just had to pick it up! The only thing is I never tried it on in store, put it in my closet, and then fast forward to a few months later when I recently discovered it again, like a shiny new treasure. I forgot how cute it was with the pleats and bubblegum pink color. Oh happy day!
On a side note, I have a question for all of my blogger {and/or photographer} friends. I have been using a new DSLR camera {Nikon D3200 with a 50mm f/1.8D AF lens} and am wondering if you have any tips or tricks for taking blog photos? Do you find shooting at certain times of day makes the lighting better/worse? I find sometimes my photos can be too bright or too dark {but perhaps I just need to learn more about the settings!}. Anyways, lets chat!

PS If you're on the market for a new pair of glasses or sunglasses, be sure to enter my giveaway from Polette Eyewear here!

sunglasses + polette eyewear giveaway

Sunglasses: c/o Polette // Top and Earrings: H&M // Bag: Le Chateau // Watch: Michael Kors

Sunglasses are always one accessory I find I can't get enough of. Not only are they chic and stylish, they also help protect your eyes against the sun. When Polette approached me to do a review of their sunglasses I was more than happy to oblige! Because I have a sunglasses hoarding habit I was rather pleased to see that most of their sunglasses are listed for under $20! I opted to review these awesome Parisian inspired sunnies, and I am just smitten! Although they are slightly too big for me {my head is tiny so sunglasses are always big on me .. good thing over-sized is in!} I will definitely be rocking them all Summer long {and Fall, and Winter..}.

The best part of all is that one lucky reader will win a pair of glasses or sunglasses from Polette off of the Vintage and Collection categories! Be sure to check out their site, instagram, twitter, and facebook to pick your favorite!

The giveaway runs until July 30, 11:59 PM EDT. The winner will be selected by random from random.org. All entries will be verified. Good luck!
