The fancy balloons

Chi Chi Adele dress
You already saw a little spoiler in my Instagram account of the place in which I shot the latest outfit pictures. My Latvian readers probably immediately recognized the beautiful Birini Castle by the lovely shade of pink and the cute towers. I think that this location was a match made in heaven with my new, gorgeous dress drom Chi Chi London.
Firstly, I was very happy that we chose this location as it’s only 15 minutes away from my summer house in Saulkrasti and, even though, the castle is so close, we had never actually been there. Therefore, it was cool to see that you don’t have to go far to see something beautiful.
Secondly, isn’t my mom just amazing? It was the first time she took pictures of me with my new camera and I think that she did extremely well as I do love, love, love the outcome! :)
Thirdly, I am still over the moon that I have a new camera – Nikon D7200 because the pictures now have a much better quality, they are more lively and the colours in photos actually match their real life colours as in green is green, blue is blue etc. So now I only have to minimally touch up my them in Photoshop which is a nice change, because before I spent hours on editing the photos more vivid and true to reality.
Fourthly, in the beginning I was thinking of buying a fresh boquet of flowers to make my outfit and the pictures more interesting and fresh, but as the local flower shop in Saulkrasti only had roses, gerbera, carnations and lilies I changed my plans. I went to a toy store which was actually next to the flower shop and bought five white balloons that were filled with helium. I think that the balloons were a much better choice and they made the pictures more romantic and have a certain charm about them.
And last, but certainly not the least – the dress! Chi Chi London Adele dress is one of the most stunning, classy, romantic dresses that I have in my wardrobe. I have collaborated with Chi Chi London multiple times in the past and I have loved all the dresses, but this surely is one of my all time favorites.

Jau savā Instagram profilā es parādīju mazu spoileri ar to, kur notika mana šī raksta foto sesija. Ticu, ka mani latviešu lasītāji uzreiz spēja atpazīt Bīriņu pili pēc skaistās rozīgās krāsas un tornīšiem. Vieta, manuprāt, bija izcili piemērota manai jaunajai, skaistajai kleitai no Chi Chi London un gan kleita, gan Bīriņu pils un tās apkārtne lieliski viens otru papildināja.
Pirmkārt, biju ļoti priecīga par lokācijas vietas izvēli, jo tā atrodas vien 15min attālumā no manām vasaras mājām Saulkrastos, bet tā arī nevienu reizi nebija sanācis aizbraukt un to apskatīt.
Otrkārt, vai mana mamma nav vienkārši lieliska? Šī bija pirmā reize, kad viņa mani fotografēja ar jauno foto aparātu un, manuprāt, viņai tas sanāca lieliski, jo bildes noteikti ir izdevušās! :)
Treškārt, vēl joprojām jūsmoju par savu jauno kameru Nikon D7200, jo bildes izdodas trīs reiz kvalitatīvākas, dzīvākas un krāsu ziņā patiesākas. Vairāk nav nepieciešama tik liela ņemšanās Photoshopā, lai paspilgtinātu bildes un krāsas padarītu patiesākas – zils ir zils, zaļš ir zaļš utml.
Ceturtkārt, no sākuma bijām paredzējušas nopirkt skaistus ziedus, kas atsvaidzinātu tērpu un padarītu bildes vēl interesantākas, bet tā kā Saulkrastu ziedu veikalā bija ļoti minimāla izvēle (tikai klasiskās - rozes, neļķes, gerberas un lilijas), tad iegāju tur pat blakus esošajā bērnu rotaļlietu veikalā un nopirku piecus piepūstus hēlija balonus, kas manuprāt, bildēm piedod savu šarmu un romantiku.
Piektkārt, un galvenokārt – kleita! Chi Chi London Adele kleita ir patiesi viena no skaistākajām, romantiskākajām un elegantākajām kleitā manā garderobē. Ar Chi Chi London esmu sadarbojusies jau vairākas reizes un man ir ļoti patikušas visas kleitas, bet šī pavisam noteikti ir viena no manām top favorītēm.
