I've been dying to tell you this story all weekend. Last week my best guy friend Christian and I went to the park to take some outfit photos. On the way there I saw this barn (of course) that looked really pretty! We decided that on our way back we'd stop by to take a few more photos before heading out.
Anyway, after leaving the park we drove to the barn and walked over to start taking photos. The angle was sort of strange so I asked Christian if he could crouch down for a better view. The area he was in was full of tall dry grass. However, a lot of areas around here are surrounded by that kind of grass and we've never had this problem.....
After getting some photos Christian and I walked back to his car to drive to our friend's house to play a board game. As soon as he sat down he jumped out SOOO quickly! He was covered I mean... COVERED in ticks. They were on his shirt, pants, zipper, shoes, back, everywhere! (luckily they weren't attached, EW) We both started doing a dance around the car looking for ticks and cringing at the fact they were crawling all over him. ICK, ICK, ICK!!
The funny thing is that the area we were in was a complete bust in terms of photos. The lighting was wrong, angle was off and it was next to the freeway which made it pretty impossible to avoid cars in the background. Ha, I guess for every "good" photo shoot there is at least 10 bad ones!
We ended up driving home instead of going to our friends. I only found 1 tick on me and it just so happened to be on my sock. Christian found at least 4 more crawling on him once we got back home. Ugh, it was awful but a lot more humorous looking back at it!
What I wore:
1950's day dress, thrifted, Salvation Army
socks, (forgot the brand!)
purse, Dooney and Bourke, thrifted
hat, vintage, gift from my best girl, Bruklyn!
I'll be back soon this week for another post! until then...
