Now What Should I Do?

I wore this dress last Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.  I went to my nice secluded photo spot, which happens to be in a garden at the local college. The place has always been deserted at 7:30 in the morning.  Until this week!! On Monday, as I was driving away, I saw an attorney I know running on a path through the garden. I thought to myself, "Surely, he's not going to be making a habit of this!" Well, umm, I'm pretty sure he is...

Dress: Bandolino, Thrifted ($4.75)
Wedges: Target ($20)
Necklace: Maurices ($2.99)
Bracelets & Watch: Borrowed from My Sis
Ring: Glow Salon ($5)


Right after taking the picture above, I ran back to my car so that I could grab the lip gloss I was wearing because I wanted to do a cutesy little pose with it. And that's when I spotted him again. Seriously, dude?!? Why do you have to run here?  Not only do I know him, but he's also friends with my boss and his kids go to the school where I'm student teaching.  How awkward would it be if he actually saw me taking pictures of myself and then wondered what it was all about! *sigh* 

So now what do I do? Do I keep taking pictures there and keep my fingers crossed he never actually sees what I'm doing? Or do I hunt down a new secluded spot? 

Do you see this lip gloss right here? I won it from the girls over at Monday Mingle! It was super shiny and stayed on all day long. In fact, I found some this morning on my coffee cup after it had been through the dishwasher. So, this lipgloss has staying power! ;)

I'm linking up with Monday Mingle again today! How could I not with the chance to win a Jane Marvel tote?!?

I hope y'all are having a fabulous week! =)

That's a toughie especially since it's someone you kind of know. You are brave doing your photos outdoors in the first place!

Such a cute dress and red looks great on you :)

I personally would find a new spot but that is just me ;)

haha...very funny situation and sounds really familiar, usually I would pretend to be taking picture of the trees or pretend that the camera is taking something else, but I guess i'm not so good at pretending. But this is a really nice location for your outfit pictures, well hopefully the guy is not nosey. Great outfit by the way, the dress is such a thrifty find! The color looks great on you! I can hardly find such low waist dresses now, it's probably vintage.

Ah man, that is tough. But that spot is so lovely, I would just laugh it off if he happened to see you taking pics, just show him that it's totally rad to be silly. ;0)

What a pretty spot for photos...I say keep taking them and hope he never notices. The maintenance men at my office always see me go out mid afternoon to take my pics so they eventually ask what I was doing...they think its fun and always compliment my outfits!!
Love that dress!!

Maybe he likes the pretty view? Haha! Love the dress!

signature mix said...

Keep taking pictures there! You look gorgeous and the scenery is lovely. If he's curious he'll ask and then you can share this great blog!

Tinfoil Tiaras said...

You look so pretty in this red dress and I love the accessories! Hmm I would stick it out- worst that could happen is you have a funny story to tell!

just tututiny said...

HAHAHA - sorry to laugh Tiffany but it was such a funny story. I've actually gotten over the whole taking pictures of myself when strangers stare. I just tell them it's a school project BUT when it's someone you know, man, that is a tough one. I think you might be better off finding another secluded area to be on the safe side....

TaraMixandMatch said...

Love the dress! I just try to ignore the stares I get when taking pictures haha

Bravoe Runway said...

Honey...just own it, it's a public spot so he can run and you can photograph! Maybe I am a narcissist but if he asks then tell him I write a blog.

Kassi said...

I agree with Bessie on this one, own it girl. Work that fierceness, Who cares who sees you? I love that red dress on you, it really compliments your body and skin! And that is some serious staying lip gloss. Is Elmer's glue a secret ingredient?

Keely said...

That coral is such a pretty color on you. Hope you find a new local soon. I never take pics in public. I'm too embarrased.:0)
