My new camera arrived yesterday afternoon.  And you know what else arrived with it?  A tripod!!  So now I can take pictures in all kinds of new and exciting places.  Provided I don’t care if people look at me funny.

I’m still using a Canon point-and-shoot but I think it takes pretty decent pictures.  Sure, it doesn’t have all the fancy options and I can’t make the background all blurry, but it works.  And it’s easy to use.

Changing subjects, I fell in love with this top at Fashion’s Night Out and my mom got it for me as a gift a few weeks ago.  I’m really loving the rolled tab sleeve chiffon-esque blouses this year.  This one in particular is so lovely in it’s simplicity that I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing it a lot.

And, yes, I had to wear a jacket today.  Welcome to fall!

    Congrats on the tripod! I still use my P&S and have a small gorillapod I use sometimes. I have a big DSLR, but the P&S is easier to carry with me in my purse. I don’t like lugging the big camera around with me all the time. It’s just not convenient at all.

    The shirt is lovely! What a great piece you can dress up like you have, or pair with jeans for a more casual look. Versatile clothing = WIN!!

      I’ve been wanting a tripod for a while. I finally found one I liked and what with my camera falling off my makeshift one I also had the impetus to spend the cash. I feel the same as you about DSLRs. They take great pics but what a pain to haul around!

    Yay for the tripod! How big is it? I woudn’t worry about people thinking you’re being funny! Who cares?! 🙂

    I like the point and shot pics too. It would be nice to have a fancy camera some day, but it does so well!

    Congrats on the tripod. I am still too scared to venture out in public with mine. So kubos for taking pics in a public-looking area 🙂 Love that blouse too! So modern.

    Loving those pointy shoes! And cheers to the weather changing! I hope you are participating in tomorrow’s copycat link up! I always love seeing your copies : )

    Conon makes a pretty nice point and shoot, my dad had one and it was way way superior to my little kodaik one. (And probably nicer than the one I have now.) They have so many options on them for shooting, I was shocked at the quality I got from his camera. So good luck with the new one, how nice you got a tripod as well! (Love tripod. So much easier!)

    How fun to see you out and about, your outfit really fits with the background. This is such a sleek look, I am in love with these heels! Platforms are nice for the height, but a great pointy top pump with a low vamp just oozes class and a little bit of sexy. The heels play up the great pipping on this blouse, the black looks very graphic against the white and takes the shirt from being a plain white button up.
