AJ Wears :: A striped blazer

You know how you sometimes take pictures and expect them to turn out, and they even look good on your camera screen, but you go home and try to edit them and they're just terribly exposed? That happened to me today - TWICE. Between the humidity here fogging up my lens and what I assume is just poor exposure and too much backlight, I was really disappointed in today's photos. But what I LOVED was today's outfit(s).

Greetings from Hilton Head! Today was our work day of the conference, which was basically touring the property, meeting about last minute details, and setting up for our conference attendees to start arriving tomorrow. I went with something comfortable - jeans and a tee - and added this blazer for something fun (and because I knew our work room would be freezing!). Then that evening, we went out for our big staff dinner at this place called the Crazy Crab and I switched out my jeans for shorts and wedges for a fun evening look!

Picked up the wedges on Target clearance a few weeks ago for $10 - the shorts are from Limited on clearance for only $15! I like collecting a few new things before I go out of town for work so I feel fresh and ready to tackle whatever the week brings me. This week so far has brought me lots of fried seafood and my first real experience with oysters - I've tried them before but never eaten more than one, so last night at Crazy Crab I resolved to give them a fair shot and discovered I quite like them with tabasco and lemon. I think it's the whole experience of shooting a gross blob out of a shell.

Today the madness begins...wish me luck! If anything goes wrong, I'll just run out to the beach and take a 15 minute break. Or stay there the rest of the day. Either way.
