never ever have I ever

{ What I Wore: H&M cap // J.Crew Factory sweater & skirt // Converse sneakers // (way way old) Victoria's Secret crossbody purse }
This past Saturday I woke up with the sun (ok, 8 but that is EARLY for me on a weekend!), slapped a hat on my un-showered hair & headed out for adventures errands.
I found this adorable library & then I did something I never thought I would do...
I planted myself squarely in front of these stately columns & took pictures with me, myself & my tripod out in plain sight of all those crazy people running at such a unheard of hour.... stop. the. presses.

What have you done on your never thought I would ever list lately?

  2. It's fun taking pictures of yourself with a tripod in the middle of town, isn't it? :) I do it in NYC a lot, but nobody cares around here. Too many other weird things going on! Love your errand running outfit, so fun!

  4. Love the polka dots and neon. You are much braver than I am with the camera action. I recently wore a big floppy hat in public for the first time - sounds like small change but it was way outside my comfort zone.

  6. My next door neighbor likes to blatantly stare when I'm taking photos. At first I felt weird, but then I realized HE was the weird one! haha this sweater is too cute

  8. you have way more guts than I ever would! I barely have the balls to take pictures in front of my garage!


    also, if you are ever looking for a smaller, less obvious tripod, I've been using the gorilla pods, which is great for not having it seem so obvious about a tripod, and people may not notice ;)

  9. Love the look! And yay for taking pictures on your own! I feel uncomfortable even with a photographer there so I'm not sure if I'd be able to do that!

  16. I'm a little too shy to do that! I've taken photos in areas where its more secluded with my tripod, and you get the occasional person walking by. If they ever ask? Oh its a photography project haha.

  22. I think people are a little more suspicious of my behavior in Nashville, but I am doing my best to cultivate a "who cares" attitude! But seriously, what a rush!

  23. Thanks lady! I have started keeping biz cards on me when out & about being creepy with my tripod, makes me feel a bit more legit! haha

  24. Thanks! I think that a floppy hat in public is totally brave, but also equally fun! Get it girl!

  27. Thanks for the suggestion lady! My tripod is a 72" behemoth & I often wish I had one a that was a little less conspicuous! I really can't believe that no one can spot my nervous jitters in these pictures... it certainly was a rush!

  33. As my first time, it was tough, but then after the fact, I felt pretty positive about it... hoping this is the first of many new adventures in tripod photography!

  45. I love how relaxed but polished this look is, Jessica! There's something so cute about a pencil skirt and Chucks, I think :)

  46. I agree! Something about that Cali-cool look (even if I am landlocked and lame in TN!)
