Just after Christmas it started to snow, and it didn't stop until the next day. It had been almost two years since we last saw snow around these parts, so obviously I had to convince my poor boyfriend to come outside for a few minutes to capture the moment. He still thinks I'm a bit crazy for making him trudge through the awful weather to take pictures of my outfit and, well, I don't blame him. However, snowy pictures are always the prettiest, and snow only happens every once in a blue moon, so IT WAS WORTH IT OKAY. The white contrasts beautifully with my dark outfit, and brings out the Christmassy vibe of the red and alpine green accents.

These pictures were taken during twilight, but I made it work with a 1.8 aperture and after throwing a filter in there. Just check out the before and after, goes to show how important post production is during the dark months.

photo editing make dark photo lighter

Snow pictures are always a win, because they can carry a lot of over-editting. Seriously brightening up high ISO pictures taken in low light conditions gives pictures a vintage film-like grain. Goes with my thrifted skirt.

PS: this scarf is ridiculously soft, blanket-sized and it has two sides with different plaid prints: SOLD.


  1. ooooeh prachtige foto's en ook mooi geedit :)

  2. So beautiful! I love that scarf, checked it out and I might just add it to my shopping basket. It's a bargain at $15! Thanks for the tip (was looking for something like this, but thought it was too expensive).
    ps: love how you edited your photos, they have this vintage vibe indeed!
