Winter Pink.

Sorry it's been ages since my last post, but I've had something awful take over my body for a week. It was one of those "when it rains, it pours" sicknesses. I'm feeling so much better today and was so happy to be able to take pictures again. As you can see, we're in the midst of a winter wonderland here in Michigan. It's absolutely beautiful, the trees are slowly turning winter white. I spent a good portion of my morning catching big, fluffy snowflakes on my tongue!

Jeff is camping for the weekend, so my guest photographer for the day is my dad! He had some cool (no pun intended, ha!) ideas and was completely okay stomping through the snow with me to take pictures.

We live in a new subdivision where houses are still being built and this lovely ol' excavator just sits in the empty lot next to our house. Some say eye sore, my dad says "photo op."

I've had this dress since April and I just took the tags off and wore it for the first time today! I have a lot more ideas for this dress for spring, and by a lot of ideas I really just mean one idea. The color is so pretty. I'm really liking pink lately, which is strange because I'm not a very pink person.

I'm crossing my fingers that school gets canceled tomorrow, because then I get another day to sleep in. Hope you are all staying warm! I've had like four cups of hot cocoa between last night and today. I personally recommend Tiramisu flavored hot cocoa, it's amazing!

Good to hear you're feeling better.
You look just lovely in pink :)

Believe it or not I used to detest pink and then from one day to the next I got over my tomboy hatred and it is all over my wardrobe now :D

That digger is too cool, especially with the snow :)

Oh, it's snowing like crazy up here in Ontario too, but of course, it's Canada. And by the way, I love that pink colour:)

These photos are SO pretty! I wish it would snow like that here. It's taking forever for snow to come this year. :/ That dress is such a nice color. I'm not really one for hot pink but I love that ballet pink. (:

Boo to the illness, but I'm glad you're starting to feel better!

I love that the dress made its first debut in winter... seems so backwards to most people, but in reality opens up a whole slew of different ways to style the piece for chillier... or frigid weather. The color looks fantastic on you- and these pictures are stunning.

How pretty are you on a scale of 1-10? My opinion? 3432987247298374.8!

Glad you are feeling better. This is a great photo shoot, my son walks around all the time with his tongue out trying to catch snow flakes :)
That dress is lovely and i am sure you could remix it heaps of different ways - boots, cute heels, different colored tights, jewellery, belts!

HEATHER. Share your weather. Now. Or I'll go over there and claim it as Oregon's, and you'll be stuck with all our rain. :D

Seriously though, so jealous! You look so pretty in the snow, in your pink. Really, really pretty all together. Hearts in my eyes.

Oh and while you're sending your weather over, please include some of your tiramisu hot cocoa. Thanks.

<3

Brittany said...

You are brave, in the snow with a light cardigan! I guess living in Michigan you get used to it, though! We are wimps here in VB, we bundle up with any clothing items laying around! I can't believe how much snow you guys get! & It's crazy reading some other people's comments on how they've never felt snow. Well, either way, you look stunning & I love that peach color on you!

I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOUR SNOW! i love love love that dress and i like that you wore a more "spring-y" color in the winter because it actually looks perfect with the snowy background :) you are so cuteee!

kate maggie said...

The fact that your Dad took these photographs makes me love them 10 x more than I already do. You are so gorgeous Miss Heather!! I love this dusty pink color on you and these photos are sooo good. Good job to your Dad! What an all star. x
