Weather or Not





Wearing: Target Hat, similar styles // Ann Taylor Vest, sold out, similar options here and here // Gap Sweater,  similar cozy options here // Classic white button down shirt // Shopbop jeans // Zara Black Booties, similar options here // Tory Burch Bag // Warby Parker Sunglasses // Kendra Scott Naomi Ring

If weather permits,  I like to take photos of several outfits and schedule my blog posts for the week. This can be quite a challenge at times since I take my own photos with my camera, a tripod and a remote. I will do a "behind the scenes" post one day... it's not as glamorous as it looks and it's pretty funny with all the looks I get from strangers.  You wonder what goes through their minds when they see me smiling and posing all by myself.  My biggest hurdle has always been the weather though. I lost one camera last year when the wind knocked over my tripod and shattered the lens.

Wouldn't you know when I headed out for a planned photo shoot yesterday, it also happened to be the coldest day of winter.  Not how I planned the start of  a new blogging year, but I will hang on to my dream of  having a personal photographer follow me around one day.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. Very impressive you do it all in public...I would be so conscious! I would have died if my camera fell, it makes me cringe just reading that.
