The Day the Wind Knocked Over My Camera

Have you ever had one those days where things are going well, until they're not? Today is one of those days. 

I had a yummy breakfast, a productive morning, the weather was great, etc... and then when I was taking my outfit pictures, the worst thing that could happen to a blogger happened to me. 

The wind knocked over my tripod. 

Now the lens of my camera is stuck (open). 

I got this camera for Christmas last year, so I've had it for less than a year, but I'm not convinced that Canon will consider it under warranty since it was "dropped". (It's a Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS for reference). Do you have any experience with Canons? Do you know what the one-year manufacturer's warranty covers?

I should really have learned my lesson by now. This is my second Canon, the third for the family. My old Canon (PowerShot SD780 IS) had a lens error and won't open. My husband had the same model, and his won't take pictures. Canon PowerShots take such nice pictures, but they are doomed from the beginning. 

So, I might not be able to post for a while (and no, I don't have an iPhone).

Occasion: Attending lecture
Tee: The Limited
Cardigan: Old Navy
Necklace: Amazon {here} {other colors only $10!}
Crops: Loft
Flats: Target
In other news, on a whim, I cut my bangs this weekend (see above picture).

Slightly humorous moment of the morning: I was debating between wearing the turquoise bubble necklace, or a pink one (same color as my crops), so I asked my husband for his opinion. When I held up the pink one, he said "wow... that's a lot of pink." I took that as a sign that I should go for turquoise. (I think it was a good decision.)

  1. So sad. I hope you can get it fixed easily/inexpensively.

  2. Oh, bummer about your camera! I dropped mine a few months ago, and it still works, but just doesn't focus as well. Clumsy blogger problems!

    On a happier note, I love your outfit. I have that cardigan and a pair of similar colored pants, so I might have to copy this one. Pinning it!

  3. Sorry to hear about your camera. That is a bummer! You still look totally adorable in your photos (especially the last one). Glad to know that I am not the only one without an iPhone :) Heather

  5. Oh NO!! That's awful :( Great outfit, I think the turquoise was the perfect choice!!


  6. Love the mix of the turquoise and pink with the polka dots!! My tripod has blown over before too. Sometimes I put my coat on the center of the tripod to weight it down in case the wind blasts!!

    1. What a great idea! If my camera gets fixed, I'll be sure to do that!

  7. Last snapshot is the best one! u look cute! Nice post, thank u for share;)

  11. The photos came out great & you look beautiful anyway. I love your cardigan & your necklace. I want a Blogger Bubble necklace so bad, actually 2 or 3 would be great. And girl it was warm enough to wear just a cardi & cropped? I am jealous. Love the color of the pants, btw.

    1. It really is that warm here (or so it was). The weather is crazy-- 70 degrees one day, 50 the next. Gotta love the weather!

  22. Ohhh, so sorry to hear about your camera! Well, I can recall now that the same exact thing happened to one of my fellow bloggers some time back. I guess it was Megan from Freckles and Feathers! Btw, yes you made the right decision-turquoise and pink look fab together!
