Macro Friday
Thank goodness it’s FRIDAY…and you know what that means: MACRO FRIDAY. However, outside of a few macro shots, this weekend is going to be pretty busy. Tonight, we’re going to see The Black Crowes…and tomorrow we’re going to our friends’ wedding.

To prepare for the weekend, I went to Steinmart the other day to see if they had any cute shoes for sale (I needed some shoes for the dress I’m wearing to the wedding) – I’ll share my new shoes with you on Sunday (to represent “pair” of course). While I was there, I found a cute new top that I thought might be appropriate to wear to the concert…that’s right, I actually bought a new top to see The Black Crowes.

The top is grey, sheer and has these little trinkets hanging from it to look like a necklace. I thought they were macro worthy and spent a few minutes last night taking a few photos.

Fun fact: my mom used to do business with Chris Robinson’s father. He was a sales representative for a few of the clothing lines she carries in her store (my mom owns a Children’s Boutique called The Red Caboose). Although he’s retired now, she tells me it was rather interesting to hear about his son’s life with Kate Hudson…to see pictures from the wedding and pictures of their son, River.

    A great concert rates a new shirt. ;) Love the pics you got of it.

    I didn’t have any weddings this year – but I’m sure there will be one eventually. ;)

    Okay, that’s not fair – to show us the macros from the shirt without showing the entire top. It looks adorable!

    Enjoy the concert. My ex-husband used to say Hard to Handle was my theme song – LOL!

    You always like to leave us guessing! Love the macros, what fun little gems on the shirt!

    Oooh so pretty. The tiny details of the photos are wonderful.

    Those are wonderful little charms! Hope your weekend is a blast!

    Ohhhh beautiful!!

    Sounds like you are going to have a fun weekend! I can’t wait to see the shoes for “Pair” (I love Steinmart too)

    I love that first shot especially! The great sense of sparkle with texture… *sigh*

    Great texture shots… all the texture is terrific.

    Speaking of jewelry…I think my teenager just decided that I no longer need any of my cute jewelry.

    hmmmmmm. will I ever see it again?

    Love it! You must be the greatest multi tasker EVER!!!

    Have fun at the concert!! Given the sneak peek you gave us , I’m sure your new top looks fab!
