So let's chat about how I felt like and ice pop for these photo. I usually shot about a zillion (ok exaggerated some) photos when I do my outfit posts. I use my trusty tripod and cross my fingers for maybe a handful to be in focus for me to choose from. On this particular day though, last Friday after leaving work, and the temperature was already dropped to a nice high of 18º, and I stood near the trains with no trees or walls for barriers... well, imagine that, I pretty much froze! The camera timer is for 10 photos max and sadly that all I shot cause any longer outside and I may have seriously become an ice cube. I ran back to my car so fast but my hands from the shock were cold for a good 10 minutes. Way to go silly, what was I thinking? (Don't worry you don't have to answer that.) When the weather warms up I'm going to shot a few more photos near the freights. They look so cool, especially this silver one. And they sit right outside of work over at Union Station. So what do you think of the altered dress (photo down bottom). Better? The mister said this one looked like little house on the prairie but after it was shortened he told me he liked it. The hunt is on as I think I need some cowboy boots. ;)

Thanks for popping by and 
I hope you have a lovely day!
