Summer Color

No, I don't mean the beautiful colors of trees starting to bloom, tulips popping, colorful flower beds and blue skies...I mean Spray Tan! I can't believe I did it but it was a must! Tomorrow morning I am modeling in a fashion show at the Ladies Spring Brunch for my church. I couldn't think about strolling the catwalk looking pasty white in front of all those ladies- embarrassing!! I went in this morning for my first experience of spray tanning. It was actually kind of fun (if that sort of thing is considered fun?). I guess perhaps "interesting" better describes it. I walked out looking like I had a very subtle "glow" and throughout the day I've seen my "tan" progress to a nice, natural color. I hope it looks good tomorrow...

The spring brunch Fashion Show segment takes an interesting twist...each model was told to take $20 and shop at our favorite discount, thrift or consignment store to find our outfit. We were allowed to use our own jewelry and shoes but the rest was up to us to find. I ended up finding a cute top at Plato's Closet and some dressy capri's at Ross. I am wearing shoes I wore in my sister's wedding and cute jewelry from Kohl's. Some of the other models found their outfits at Nordstrom Rack, Goodwill, Savers, and Mile High Thrift. I'll try to post pictures following the event tomorrow if I can. It should be fun!

Ohhhhh.....I have always wanted to try it but I have never been brave enough. I have this fear that I would end up looking like an umpa lumpa!

Amy!

I've been away for awhile and have so many comments, but I'll add them all to this post (in case you don't go back and see there are other coments on previouse posts...)
1. Love the blog makeover!
2. Love the hair cut (especially love your glamor shots pose :) ). Isn't that freeing, and donating to Locks of Love feels so good. I did it a few years ago and for such a simple little act, it felt so fulfilling.
3. Spray tanning--I may need to consider doing that before my friend's wedding in a few weeks. I am afraid that the beyond whiteness of my body may blind all of the guests. Oooh, I feel a funny blog post coming on...

Hope the fashion show was great!

Hmm... I've always wanted to try it, but have been hesitant after Beth Moore's story of it coming off in the pool. Is yours "pool proof"?
