The other weekend Sarah and I went to some local parks and took some pictures to celebrate Spring and the warm weather. We looked for flowers and good lighting to make the pictures more interesting and we each chose 2 outfits. It’s still early in spring so we didn’t get as much nature in the shots as we originally wanted, but I think the pictures still turned out really well!
Shirt: Mudd at Kohl’s
Shirt: American Eagle
Jeans: American Eagle
Dress: cotton on
We took tons more and I love all of them but this post would be about 10 pages long if I posted all the pictures so I figured it was best to just show off my favorites.
Though the weather is making it hard to believe lately, Spring is here! There are so many cute styles popping up and I’m so excited to update my wardrobe with them.I went to the mall the other day and I think I saw each one of these items at least 3 times in each store.
With spring comes the seemingly ever present rain. Though rain is a guarantee for frizzy hair and runny makeup, there are plenty of ways to still look cute. So many stores sell really awesome and durable rainware that are perfect for the rainy months.
Lots of school’s have off this week or the week following for Spring break. Though of course everyone wants to have that perfect tropical crazy spring break week, that is not the realistic case for most teens. Despite this, you can still have tons of fun! Here are some ideas on how to spend your week off.
Throw a party
It doesn’t have to be for anything, it can just be for fun! If you or one of your friends has a big backward, set it up with balloons, tables of food, and games. Order in from your favorite restaurant, have everyone bring food like a potluck, or even set tables up like a buffet. The options for food are endless. Make a theme and have everyone dress up or just make it casual. Your party should be about having fun with your friends and spending your spring break with people who make you happy.
Do a project
Whether its painting, filming a movie, knitting, cooking, drawing, or sewing, find a hobby and dedicate your time to it. Find something that interests you that you don’t normally have time to do and run with it. Be your most creative and expressive self because you have all the time in the world! After the week is up you will have learned or improved a new skill and will have something to show for it! (That’s way better than a tan, right?)
Go for a hike
Hopefully if the weather is nice you will take the time to explore the great outdoors. I am lucky enough to have 2 hiking reserves close to me, but if you don’t maybe make a day trip out of driving to a really cool hiking reserve. If you life in a big city where there are no trees in sight, go to a park! Take time to smell the flowers and enjoy the fresh air.
Have a photoshoot
Get together with a bunch of friends, find a cool location or make a backdrop, grab some props and have fun! Creating a photoshoot is a way to express tons of creativity and personality, plus if gives you plenty of Instagram material!
Go on a day trip
Find a museum in your area or an exhibit you want to check out. Go with your friends or your family, and make a day out of it. Find a cool place for lunch and take lots of pictures of everything you see.
Spring is absolutely my favorite season. I love spending time outdoors whether its hiking, picnicking, or doing a photo shoot!
