How I Edit My Insta Photos

Before I even take the picture and start editing it, the most important step to the perfect picture is LIGHTING. You want to make sure there is enough light in the picture, that way the editing is easier AND you get a consistent Insta theme. Thumbs up for an "on-fleek" Insta. Hehe, sorry I had to say that. ;) Okay now on to the editing steps. I use an app called Afterlight for ALL my editing. I believe it's 99 cents.

 Step 1 || Saturation. I usually turn the saturation up a tad to make the photo look a little more alive.

Step 2 || Brightness. Love this part! I will almost all the time do it to 100% and sometimes a tad more. I like my pics bright and fresh looking.

Step 3 || Sharpening. This is an important step if you want you pictures looking clean and fresh. It will do exactly as it says, sharpen the picture surface.

Step 4 || Light clouds. This (like all the others steps) is super important to getting that bright fresh look to your photos. I always use filter #4 & 12 on my photos. Adjust it to whatever softness you want.

Step 5 || White frame. The last step that in my opinion will enhance your already bright and fresh photo is adding a white frame. You don't even have to leave the app because Afterlight has that ability as well. Pretty snazzy I know!

Okay so those are the steps I do all the time for my Insta feed. I hope you enjoyed getting to know the secrets to my feed. Just kidding there's not really any secrets. ;)

Summer Whites + Floral

Happy Summer!
Since I just got my first pair of white jeans I had to do a fashion post showing them off. ;) They are SOO soft and comfortable, seriously who knew they could be so comfy. Needless to say I love them. They are perfect for the warm summer weather and are really fun to come up with different ways of styling them.

Preppy Girl Tag

What's your definition of preppy? Classy, put together, and mature!
What's your all time favorite brand? J.Crew! Though I rarely own any J.Crew pieces. Kate Spade is another brand that I adore! 
What is your favorite Lilly print? Lets Cha Cha and First Impression
Favorite preppy YouTuber? Sarahbelle93x, of course! I first learned of the "preppy lifestyle" from her! Also I adore Brooke Miccio! 
Jack Rogers or Sperrys? I don't own either BUT I would have to choose Jack Rogers. 
Jeans or Khakis? Jeans for sure. I just got myself a pair of white jeans.
Duck Boots, Riding Boots or Hunters? Ah it's so hard to choose! I'm just going to list them in order of my favorites. First is Hunters, Riding Boots, finally Duck Boots.
