Unexpected Color Combo and HOT Pinkness!

I just got a new camera and I'm ready to sell it and buy a different one. We just don't get along.
I've read it's lengthy manual, I've tried each obnoxious switch on the dial but damn't if it doesn't work right!
I think I'm better suited for a regular Nikon or a simpler Cannon.  This DLSR and I do not get along.

On to Polka Dot flowiness and Hot Pink blurriness!

These colors! I might not have considered it until I realized the pants I wanted to wear were dirty, so on went the trusty denim skinny's and of course my beloved camel knee boots.

I always wear earrings. Gold was the obvious choice. But, I barely have the time to get myself ready between two kids and my seemingly always running late syndrom, so I tend to skip other pieces of jewelry. Had I the time, I think layered dainty gold necklaces would've complemented this outfit perfectly!

On to the blurry pics of New Years Eve! Have I mentioned that my camera and I don't get along? We fought at the beginning of the night so I returned the feeling of rejection and picked up my iPhone....

Told you I always have a water bottle in hand! On to the iPhone pics!

Our night started with dinner and drinks at a nearby Irish Pub....just the hubs & I.
It's nice for the two of us to get out and enjoy normal, adult dinner conversation.

After dinner we headed downtown to a crowd of friends. Thank God they had thought ahead and reserved a section. The line at the door was deep and it was cold. Not really my first choice of how I want to spend an hour of my night. So with a quick name drop we slipped downstairs feeling awful for those in line.

The drinks were plenty, the laughter stayed at the volume of a roar, and our dance moves improved or worsened as the night went...depending on how you look at it. I'd like to think they improved.

I avoided sequins....unlike the other 345,590,569 girls. I like sequins but I also like being different. I wore a boho, one should style dress...and thanks to my shittayyyy camera skills not a single picture does the dress justice. Bummer.

Wedges in my opinion are a win, win.
Heels are sexy but ultra hard to dance in.
Right?!? Wedges, however, do the legs alot of good and are tight friends with balance. Something one needs on New Year Eve....

So that's it, people. That's all I have to offer. An unexpected color combo in the name of polka dot fashion (fading or not) and some "Hot"Pink blurriness on my New Years Eve night out with the hubs and friends.

I love the polka dot outfit! Great color combo & overall look. :)

Did your camera come with a warranty? Might be worth sending in to see if they can fix whatever's wonky (focusing problem, whatever it is).
