The Summer Maxi Dress

Have you ever made the mistake of visiting some place new, going to a friends birthday party, or even say, going out to take outfit photos, and completely spaced when it came to turning on auto-focus...Only to discover your mistake much later?
That's what happened with this post. Le sigh.

Dress: Ralph Lauren // Shoes: Shellys London // photos by Azu

In spite of slightly blurry photos (which was completely my fault: it's second nature for me to turn the auto-focus off to protect the lens), this was a lovely day. Azu and I hung out again, this time going to a mutually favorite spot where they serve the most delicious mini pies. Afterwards we wandered the downtown area vising local vintage shops. 

I'm still upset with myself over forgetting the the auto-focus. I'll just take this as a lesson to be extra thorough when it comes to remembering!

I want to thank you for such encouraging comments that you left on my previous post. Thank you!
