Bracelet: gift from Ashley of flyby designs

The weather here lately has been so terrible, if it's not snowing it's gray and gloomy. I haven't been in the mood to wear dresses too much lately, to be honest I consider it a win if I can even get proper pants on (before I go into work). I picked up this dress the other day and it was so cheerful that I had to wear it as soon as I could!

The only problem is that the gray skies make for terrible pictures, so I played around in Photoshop to see if I could get them to look any better. I was going for an over-saturated and fuzzy 70s feel. I wish I knew how to use Photoshop better, I have a few little editing tricks I use sometimes, but I would love to know more. I also wish the sun would come out soon, then I wouldn't need Photoshop :)

Do you have any photo-editing tricks up your sleeve?

  1. The dress is gorgeous! The colour looks lovely on you.

    Catherine, XO.

  2. You look so so good! Orange is your colour!
    PS i LOVE your blush where from?!

  3. Oh my goodness gracious me. That dress is amazing! I always feel just a little sad when I scroll down and it says 'thrifted' because it means I can't buy one too! haha. I also have no idea how to use Photoshop.. I use a cute website called Piknik for simple editing. It's easy to use and set up to look like a picnic! Cute!


  4. you're gorgeous. and that dress. pretty perfect!

  5. I am totally in love with that dress!!!

  6. Hello, you are adorable. :) I used to take outfit photos outside and I LOVED grey skies b/c then there weren't any weird sun shadows. Anyway, what I would do in Photoshop to make them pretty was to duplicate the image, go to Filter> Render> Lighting Effects and select 2 o'clock shadow and extend the circle over your entire image. Adjust the opacity down to 25-35% and voila, pretty glowy photos!

    Sorry that was long and boring but the point is -- nice to meet you. :)

  7. i'm totally hooked on picnik.com for their editing options, its super user friendly. they're unfortunately closing down in april but all of their premium tools that usually aren't free are free right now. you might want to check that out! :)

  8. I love this dress and it goes perfectly with the boots. I am still on the search for the perfect pair of cowboy boots.
