In Burning Red + Behind the Scenes

Playing Dress Up In the Winter // Tulle Skirts

I like to think of red as Taylor Swift’s color of the year for 2012 (and probably every other year). And I, like Taylor, have always loved bright red lipstick. But up until this winter, the only red clothing I owned was a pair of red pants. Oh, and my ugly Christmas sweater.

But I finally bought a (non-tacky) red sweater … and I can’t remember why I was so opposed to the color before. Bright colors are my favorite (hence my pink coat), and now that I have one red item, I think it’s time for more. πŸ™‚

Matt loves (seriously — loves) taking terrible pictures of me and saying, “Behind the scenes!” Maybe I sneezed or fell or had to adjust my shoe … and he took delight in capturing it.

Of course, when he does this, it always makes me laugh. And then we end up getting some good pictures out of that. So I guess it works out. But today, I thought I’d share some behind the scenes commentary/insight from our photoshoots. πŸ™‚ For this one in particular …

If I’m laughing …

I probably just slipped or almost fell on the ice/snow/slush. It happened many times.

If my lips are puckered …

I’m probably supplying sound effects for my twirls.

I actually do my own sound effects a lot (which makes me think of this scene from The Emperor’s New Groove). Example: One time, Matt and I were killing time at the Apple Store, so we were both playing games on the display iPads. After probably 10 minutes Matt said to me, “You know, the game still works even if you don’t do your own sound effects.” But I didn’t even realize I was making noises. So that was embarrassing.

If I’m looking into the distance …

I’m probably checking to make sure no one’s about to walk into the picture. Apparently the Sunday morning after a big snow is a really popular time for people to go running on nature trails. (This makes no sense to me. Why not run somewhere where the snow has melted??)

Thanks for reading!
