I hope you guys had an amazing Memorial Day Weekend! Mine was definitely one for the books: my childhood best friend, Katie, got married (and I was a bridesmaid!); I was reunited with Mitch; and our last visit home to New York before Baby Larkin is currently in progress.
I have so many snapshots and stories to share, but I’m basically dying right now. ;)
Mitch and I did a ton of walking when we lived in New York (entertaining and free!), and whenever we go back, we spend our time doing just that. On day one of this trip, we walked from the East Village to the Lower East Side to Soho to the West Village to the Meatpacking District… stopping frequently to rest, eat and rehydrate. But YIKES. Toward the end, my feet and hands were crazy swollen. These photos were taken the following morning, and you can definitely notice how puffy my feet and hands still were. Holy veins.
We’re obviously scaling things back much more dramatically now, but hey: glad I got to really do it up for at least one day!
In other news, I’ve been carrying around the mirrorless camera and lens I recently told you about in this post. (This was my first “outfit” post with it.) It’s been awesome. Had I not purchased it, I probably would have gone totally without a camera this past weekend, as carrying around my giant DSLR and prime lens while traveling almost always makes me miserable. (Despite how much I love taking photos.) But my new travel camera has been wonderful.
I won’t lie and say I love it as much as my 5D. I don’t. When I’m shooting with the Sony, I really miss my Canon, but I think the reason behind that is because I know its controls like the back of my (very veiny) hand. The Sony is simply brand new to me. I took it around Nantucket for couple of days, but that was the only practice I had with it before using it in New York. Every camera is different, and requires some “getting used to.”
That said, I’m really impressed with the quality of the camera’s pics considering its tiny size and my inexperience, and I’m certainly beginning to have very strong feelings about the little guy. ;) The controls for ISO, shutter speed and aperture are easy to use; its weight is nothing compared to my DSLR; and, like I said, the photo quality is really impressive. Before, I rarely pulled out my camera unless it was for a planned shoot… but now, I find myself taking SO many more photos of day-to-day stuff while out and about. It’s always in my tote!
I’ll share some more snapshots taken with it in the coming days, but for now, I’m off to bed.
One last thing, though: It’s finally warm enough for me to wear my navy Soludos wedges (also available here and here)! (Sadly forgot to bring them to Nantucket. #pregnancybrain) And I found the most flattering (non-maternity) off-the-shoulder tops and dresses. As I’ve mentioned, I haven’t been feeling the greatest about my appearance as I’m now in my third trimester and rapidly expanding. But I loved this outfit, and felt a bit more like myself in it! Tip: size down in BR off-the-shoulder tops and dresses.
