Now that we’ve sprung forward, I think I can officially say… Happy March, everyone!
And Em and I decided to show some of that spring spirit with our glittery greens.
It finally reached 50s in Baltimore today, but looking at the Tampa throwbacks is making me wish I was somewhere sunny and 75. At the very least, though, the spring partying has begun (thank God).
And in order to keep up with the trends, we felt the need to post our take on St. Patty’s day colors.
Holiday theme dressing has always been one of my favorite activities (and you can bank on the fact that I’m the obnoxious pincher on St. Patrick’s day), but with work, its a little more difficult to remain appropriate (green tshirts with slogans like “Magically Delicious” don’t really fly anymore… although, they really shouldn’t. Ever.)
So it became even more fun to put together something still relatively obnoxious (helloooo sequins), yet still adult. Because I’ve been told I am one.
In addition to the holiday, this post was particularly fun because it was actually the first post Em and I did together while I was home. And having her mom photograph us was incredible — I can definitely see where Emily gets her sense of design. It was so nice to have someone tell me EXACTLY what to do to make my pictures better (as I have mentioned, the photography part of blogging is the part I firmly dislike).
At one point I was holding one of the branches in these pictures, and she quickly directed me to put my arm down due to “too much pit”.
I’m not gonna lie, hearing Em’s mom tell me to conceal my armpit was a highlight of the day (when WAS the last time I shaved?!?) and I almost lost it. I would’ve been on the ground laughing for the rest of our photoshoot if Emily hadn’t noticed me about to decompose. The camera and Emily have a very solid relationship, and she was able to hold my gaze and keep me calm enough to get in a few decent pictures.
Then Em did her thing and the camera loved her, and I did my best to copy.

Ah, well, you win some, you lose some, and I won enough of them to get some pictures up.
