When Bees Attack

 If you follow me on Instagram (missmelissa_k) then you would have seen a sneak peek from this outfit shoot last week (and if you're not following me on instagram... well... shame on you). I posted one of the photos from this shoot because I found it funny. Let me walk you through what happened.

See those lovely flowers I am standing next to? Well, they were the home to a large number of bees. Bees are the one thing in this entire world I'm not allergic to so I ignored them flying around and kept on posing for photos.

Then, I realized the buzzing had gotten really loud and there were bees in my hair.

(Disclaimer: It may have only been one bee in my hair but for the sake of this story being a little less boring, we are going to say bees. Plural. Invisible bees that are very dangerous but don't show up on film. Vampire bees perhaps. Vampires don't show up in photos do they?)

And I made this face.

And then I did what any rational, intelligent person would do when a swarm of invisible vampire bees are flying in their hair. I ducked.

I'm sure that ducking would save my life in numerous situations. But when bees, that are very capable of flying at various altitudes, attack? Yah....


Now, in order to make myself look smarter, I'm going to get off the computer and go do some math.


  1. hahaa Omg I would have def ran off screaming! lol
    This outfit is so cute! I love navy and yellow together.

  2. Your outfit is adorable! Love that yellow with the navy and anchors!!


  3. I love that anchor print blouse and it looks adorable with that yellow skirt!

  4. this skirt and shirt combo is just perfect!!

  5. love this combination!!

  6. Such a cute little skirt and top. Bees scare the crap out of me! I'm surprised you could STAND there!

  7. Love how you paired your navy blouse with a bright yellow skirt, the color combo works so well!

  8. I love your neon skirt with those pumps!

  9. They must have liked your yellow skirt!
    I've been waiting to see these since your hilarious instagram teaser!

  10. Hahaha, you are so cute & funny! You look much more graceful than I would have if I had bees in my hair... my photos would have been more like a squished up screaming/panic face, followed by a running away photo. I fully support your transition back to blonde - as tempted as I am to go dark every fall, I always feel like it won't feel like me! So I feel ya on that one! Good luck with the transition!

  11. Um, completely forgot to comment on the actual outfit, which is ADORABLE! Got all caught up in bees & hair and forgot the clothes! Really loving this outfit! You know my weakness for nautical things, and this top pairs so well with the skirt! Gorg combo!

  12. Haha! You're adorable, Melissa. When I was walking into work yesterday I thought I was about to be attacked by a bird and the best I could do was put the hood of my coat up. Semi helpful I guess, but really?! Oh and I bet the face I pulled was a lot worse than yours!
    I love this outfit. That top is gorgeous and I really want that bag, ahh.

  13. Haha I remember seeing this picture on Instagram, so funny! Love how we sometimes (often?) capture funny/silly pictures during outfit shoots. At least you were ducking in a very pretty outfit - the yellow and navy look great together! Ahoy! ;-)
