I’m tired of the hands on hip poses but I’m also completely awkward in front of the camera….
So we tried a casual walking “pose”… Still awkward?
And then we tried it again. It got a bit more awkward when a school bus passed and a little boy (about 7 or 8) shouted out, “Pretty outfit! And on a pretty girl!” Sigh; I always get the really young ones or the really old ones. 🙂
Then we tried a “leaning against a dirty wall” pose. It’s ok but what is up with my hair looking like it’s two different lengths? And about the random wire and garbage; well, welcome to Brooklyn.
And finally….we have this gem. What’s going on? I have no idea. But I like it. A lot.
I love a good print mix and this is the first of many to come on my blog. 🙂 Print mixing can look messy and confusing when done wrong but when the prints compliment each other, a good print mix can be fun and interesting! I can’t resist a good polka dot print and this outfit feels fun and cheerful to me. How do you feel about print mixing? A do or don’t?
This was one of those dresses that I tried on and knew I had to have. I felt pretty and confident in it and that’s not something that happens all the time. When I tried it on, it was over $350 and I just couldn’t bring myself to buy it….but I found it a couple months later for more than half off and grabbed it (just one left in my size-dontcha love it when that happens??). Well, my daddy paid for it but it was worth every penny and I’m sure he’d agree! 🙂
Pink and cobalt is a color combo I love (here’s my anchored version and my sequin version) and this is my third time combining these colors on the blog! I usually stay away from button down shirts because most of you know how I feel about tucking in my shirt (I feel self conscious) and my (lack of) height makes them look ridiculous and sloppy. But I got smart and started to bring them to tailors to get them cut. I found someone I like that is well priced and cutting the shirts down have made a big difference. Of course when the shirt comes in petite, I don’t have to worry about cutting it, but I got this shirt from Gap on major sale-in 3 colors- and cut them to a better length for my frame.
Do you have a body type that makes it hard to shop for and what do you do about it? And what are your favorite color combos?
