What I Did: Bestie photo shoots are so trendy on Pinterest. And so is everything country and vintage. So, Dani and I decided let’s DIY the crap out of a photo that we saw on Pinterest! Easy enough, right? All we need is our friendship, some great hair, a pickup truck, and someone to take the picture! Look at these girls! Those shorts are ON POINT! And those boots and perfectly not perfect locks? Um, yes please. Even chicks with broken arms can participate in photos like these (see far right). I bet she broke her arm while not being basic and totally rocking out to some Brad Paisley.
Dani and I decided to do a little photo shoot on the evening of the 4th of July, because nothing is more patriotic that our undying love for one another. We put on our shorts, patriotic tops, and climbed in the rusty truck bed of a 1974 Chevy Cheyenne. This truck is like way vintage, so this photograph was obviously going to trump the Pinterest shot.
My amazing husband decided to play photographer. He didn’t understand what the heck was happening, but just went along with it and started shooting photos as we barked orders from the truck bed.

Next Time I Will: Sadly, the resulting image was less than desirable. Here is what went wrong:
We forgot cowboy boots.
We didn’t rock coordinating pastels.
We didn’t hold hands.
We look like corpses with amazing calves.
It was too dark.
We didn’t use an SLR. We used Snapchat.
I’m sure this project can be cute. It was probably major user error.
