Happy Accident Outfit Post & Thunder Clouds

Greetings and happy Sunday!  Usually on Sundays I do a segment called 'Sunday Vintage' where I showcase one of my pieces of clothing from my vintage collection.  I lightly sprained/re-activated an old injury in my ankle/foot last weekend, and of course it was during a week when I had no photos for new outfit post (aside from Special Pieces Saturday).  I decided my ankle brace probably didn't need to make it's fashion debut on my blog just yet, so I didn't have anything planned for this Sunday.  But yesterday I was back in action, even wearing heels(!) and I took an outfit photo for an intended #ootd for Instagram.  I kept taking photos because I wasn't feeling any through my view finder, but when I uploaded the pics to the computer I really just loved the photos way more than expected so I decided to make a whole outfit post of them.  Why did I like them so much?  Mostly because the clouds were insane!  A storm was rolling in and changing the lighting-literally-every 30 seconds.  It felt challenging in the moment but I think this was actually a very happy accident.  Enjoy!
 I really love band tee shirts with more "demure" skirts.  I love how it's edgy and unexpected, and frankly kind of weird...like my personality.  In case you can't see, the shirt is a Tegan and Sara shirt.  I saw them five years ago at The Ogden Theater in Denver.  They were amazing, so if you get the chance to see them you should!  This is also one of my favorite concert tees ever!

 VERY minimal editing went into these.  In fact, I rarely use any form of photoshop or editing software in my photos because I try to maintain a relatable 'girl in real life wearing her favorite outfits' look.  Sometimes an exposure needs some heightening or some warmth added to save an otherwise great photo, but past that I call it good.  I literally tweaked only a handful of these by the slightest of notches just to better outline the colors that were happening in real life.

Have any of you ladies experienced a happy accident while taking photos?  I'd love to hear about it in the comments, especially if there's a link to said photos!  XOXO
