My biggest goal for the blog this year is to improve my photography.  Thanks to ladies such as Lauren of Someone Like you,  Lauren of Introvert's Introduction (a fellow Alaska girl, high five!) and of course numerous other women who have amazing photography featured on their blog, I really want to push myself now that I've sort of got my camera figured out.  I really love the style aspect but photography has turned into such a love for me.  I've got a really long ways to go and a lot to learn but it's encouraging to see how far I've come since I started this blog.  I do want to say thank you to Keit and Joyce, you two have been so kind and sweet with answering my questions and you've helped me so much!

I keep trying to push myself to wear bright colors this winter and I keep reverting back to neutrals like these.  I'm going to have to get over it and wear a bright pink and lime green jumpsuit, that should get me on board with the colors. (Or burn my retinas out.)


  1. Your photos have already gotten so much better! This makes me wish I was back in Alaska so that I could see some beautiful snow! Also, can I just say that you are super gorgeous? Like dang! Hot mama! :3

  2. I love all the neutrals. And your photography is already amazing, so I can't wait to see how it improves! I love the tights as always! Flawless mix of textures and patterns as always Katie!

  4. I always like and love your pictures and your style. You are bettet and better from post to post:) I like all details and the last picture is perfect.

  5. I looove this look so much! :D That jacket is fabulous! I'm just a little bit obsessed with mixed-material clothing right now. :D Heehee!

    Wish we have some snowfall here so I can also try those cute winter looks!

  6. Go girl! Not only your photography has improved - I think your style has too. In such a short time, I've already noticed it. Can't wait to see what this year will bring you :)

  7. oh, this is a winter wonderland. and you look so classy, like in a old beautiful movie.

  8. talking about colours, just yesterday I noticed how I was wearing neutrals and I even kind of felt guilty about it because I love colours and colours make me happy and look lovely on photos as well.
    though I love your outfit anyway, colours or neutrals, it doesn't even matter. it's such a beautiful dress and also that jacket. and of course the hat. those three make a wonderful trio!

  11. Playing around with my camera and taking the photos is definitely my favorite part of blogging! I love this set, and you look gorgeous. That hat was made for you :)

  12. Hi Katie, I think thats what blogging should be about, finding a connection with something youre passionate about and fine tuning it, like photography, your photos are impressive! I don't think neutrals are playing it safe, I actually think its something far more difficult to wear (for me at least) than colour, and you do so with grace. Love the dress!

  13. Ahhh! The black and blush of this outfit is so pretty! Again, with the romantic look that you wear so well.

    Turns out my husband actually is learning about ISO and F-stop and white balance and such in his photography class. If it hadn't been so freaking cold on our roof when he took my pictures this week I bet he would have been up for playing around with it even more.

  14. These are really pretty pictures!! i LOVE this hat on you!


  15. That dress is gorgeous!! And as far as photography goes - I'm getting my first DSLR camera tomorrow, so I have yet to figure it out and then improve on my photography. A looooong road ahead of me.:) But I honestly like these photos, they portray a hint of mystery, I think... I don't know, maybe it's just me...

  16. Loving this dress on you! I think you take great pictures, keep up the good work. I love the 8th picture of so of you staring at the camera. SO PRETTY!

  17. Woman, I think your pictures are super gawjus. But then I have 0 photography skillz. I need to learn how to do the whole tripod thing and get a better cam. And whenever I see your pictures, I keep on thinking how glamorous AK snow is. because YOU make it look glamorous!

  20. I love this outfit. It has some super feminine elements to it, which I think you do so well. Your photos are beautiful, so I look forward to seeing what you consider good photography!

  21. Oooo! I love that jacket!

  22. I love the choice of tights with this outfit. It really pulls everything together, with the horizontal bands echoing the ones on your dress and the texture playing off the one in your jacket. Such a cohesive look - this is one of my faves!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I always like hearing feeback! (It really makes my day!)
