Flowy skirts + polkadots = summer

Wearing: F21 skirt and top, Zara cardigan, H&M flats, Promod purse, SIX necklace
Hi sweets! I have one photo to share with you all today! Actually, I took about 48 on my driveway this afternoon with my new 50mm lens. Turns out, that it really is impossible to make your own photos with that lens and self timer. I was out of focus in the other 47 photos… . Are there any pro’s out there? I really could use some advice, haha! 
Wondering why I tried self timer in the first place? Well, exams are coming up for us Belgian students and that means all my usual photographers are busy studying. Like I should be right now. I’ve spend the last 4 hours reading through and summerizing my Psychopathology book and it’s been quite the heavy read. I was in need of a break and really wanted to show you guys this outfit because I LOVE it! Alas, the photo doens’t do it any justice so I’ll try to schedule a real shoot in the weekend, haha. 
I know I currently am on a no-buy, but does it count when you shop with a giftcard you recieved? I shopped wisely and got (amongst other things) this beautiful flowy skirt with belt from forever 21 in beige and in a pretty berry pink. They were exactly what my closet needed! They are multi combinable and will definitely be included in my 30×30. Didn’t I tell you yet? I’m starting a 30×30 on Go chic from June 1st! I plan to do a recap post on here at the end, but if like to follow along the process you can follow me here!
Happy humpday!
Nikki

    I love this little (or should I say these little) flowy skirt(s)!! They look adorable on you, and I'd definitely say that shopping with a giftcard isn't really "spending money", because you just don't use your own money, but gifted money ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That title is so true…I don't think it gets much better than polka dots and flowy! I am currently wearing a polka dot top and huge wide leg pants ๐Ÿ™‚

    De enige tip die ik heb, is iets zetten waar je gaat staan, daarop scherpstellen, en dan daar zelf gaan staan! Ik heb er ook al mee afgezien, met die lens ๐Ÿ˜‰ Fijne outfit trouwens!

    This is a perfect outfit. I'm going to have to keep this one in mind as it is perfect office wear. Good luck on all your exams!

    Fun! Good luck on your 30×30.

    You must have felt frustrated to go through that much work for one shot. Luckily, I have my fiance to take photos. Good luck with the self-timer!

    for sure gift cards don't count! haha You should get yourself a camera remote lady! best two decisions I ever made.haha (I had to get two because I though I was gonna die when I lost one!) the one I love is here: http://tinyurl.com/coaxydq, and there's no programming or anything, you just switch your camera to the remote option and click away!
    Love your outfit by the way, so fun!

    cute outfit! I have tried to use the self timer without too much success myself, instead I use a remote. Anyway, your pictures always look great, have a beautiful day ๐Ÿ™‚

    Congrats on getting a good shot out of your new camera lens and timer–it's always tricky when you get new equipment, I'm sure you'll be a pro in no time. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Oh no! I'm sure you'll get the hang of taking your own pictures with your new lens though. Once all your school stuff is done you can figure it out!

    I really like your polka dot top and this comfy-looking outfit. So cute!
