Style: Indecision

I don’t know if the weather is similar in your neck of the woods, but around here no one knows if it’s spring or fall. I dressed for both. Bright summery colors paired with subdued fall tones is really fun. And different. I like different.

These photos are so grainy, and the white balance is completely off. I took these photos at 7:30 at 4000ISO. But still, my old camera would never get pictures this nice at such a poor time of day.

I won’t be able to attend Utah’s Breathing Space Retreat this year, so I’m sending Celeste in my place. Celeste is my uber-extraordinary intern who helps out behind the scenes with ads and sponsorships. Contact her at [email protected] if you’re interested in advertising in this space.

 Hi there! I am so excited to share this post with you. I love Melissa’s outfit posts (she’s so daring with color and patterns) and I thought one relevant way to say hello and talk about the Breathing Space blogger retreat I’m headed to this weekend would be to feature my own.

Friday night at Breathing Space, we’re attending a Stepford Wives dinner. If you haven’t seen it, like myself until two weeks ago, it’s basically about perfect women who run perfect households who are perfect vixens.

So pretty much the opposite of any free-thinking, creative woman (ahem, bloggers) and exactly what one might imagine living in the perfect homes of the Daybreak community, where the retreat is held. I laughed two hours later when I finished the movie at that. Clever retreat organizers.

To fit the bill, I pulled out this little lovely that I bought when I was still in high school and was convinced I could be the next Olivia Newton-John in Grease, before she sold out and got John Travolta-d.

Do I look like I might pull out a fresh batch of cookies? Build a pinecone snowman?

I’ll be Tweeting and covering it via Instagram under the handle @CelesteRosenlof and hashtag #breathingspace.

Follow Breathing Space along on Facebook, too.

I threw on the most colorful clothes I have to mask my lack of motivation to look stylish today. Too bad you can’t see the killer shoes I wore while running errands. And I changed up my background. This is much cleaner. Me likey. I still am nervous about getting the whitbalance consistent in all of my posts, but I guess it will push me to get better at my photography.
