*pop by Kaylah's blog to see her outfit details and the photos she chose*

There were so many awesome and hilarious photos from this outfit photo shoot that it was really hard to pick my favourites to share. These were taken the first evening I was visiting Kaylah and it was a perfect temperature for taking photos. Yes there is such a thing as perfect photo taking temperature. As usual we had so much fun during this little photo shoot. 

You can't really tell from the photos but the front of my shins were a lovely shade of red thanks to our afternoon at the beach. The redness had turned into a tan by the next day but the fronts of my legs looked absolutely hilarious this evening.

I got this dress, as well as another one just like it in a different colour, as a birthday gift from my dad. Usually for my birthday my dad and I head to the mall for some birthday shopping but this year we went to The Button Pushers to check out their pretty vintage selection. This dress originally had short sleeves but they were really restrictive (must be because of my bulging muscles) so removing them was the perfect solution and makes this dress even better for summer.

Just so you don't feel ripped off, here are some amazing jumping photos. I think this may have been our best jumping session to date, we were totally in sync. There were so many good ones!

    1. Just don't steal it while I'm wearing it. That would be embarassing.

  23. Haha those jumping shots are great, as are the ones Kaylah said were of you guys looking at birds! It's pretty obvious you had a lot of fun :)
    Haha I tend to get clothes from my dad for my birthday, too. You really scored on this dress, it's such a nice colour, and the subtle details don't feel too overpowering with the print. Lovely!
