Snowstorms and Lack of Prep!

I've been so good recently with keeping up with posts (2 months into the new year with countless snow storms!). Unfortunately, I've run out of prepared posts that are weather relevant to these non stop snow storms on the weekends. (can't they come during the week and give me a snow day??)

So I've changed things up a bit, and decided to use the backdrop manfriend got me for Christmas. I'm still adjusting on how to take photos with the backdrop so bear with me as I go through my learning curve.

I actually really like how this shirt worked as a stand alone top. It's actually a wispy cardigan like garment with no buttons to bring it together. It was a bit big so I decided to swaddle myself in it and turn it into a wrap top. The pattern, neutral coloring, and low cut V neck reminds me of the Altuzarra for Target collection. I loved that collection, but need to find more occasions to wear plunging necklines, because work is just not the place.
Top | Thrifted
Belt | Altuzarra for Target
Pants | Ann Taylor
Shoes | BCBG

I'm not going to lie, this photo shoot is probably one of the more frightening ones I've had to take for this blog. Yes, taking photos outside while people stare is uncomfortable, but there's always something to distract you, and because of all the noise in the background, you're never the only focus.

When you're standing in front of a white tarp, you're the sole focus of the photo. No pretty floral background to detract from the broccoli stuck in your teeth or that glaringly obvious panty line. It's terrifying. I don't know how the starlets do it. So please excuse my awkwardness in the photos as I was paralyzed with fear and painfully aware of where my hands were every instant I was in front of the camera.

I can tell you right now. I can't WAIT until it's spring and I can go outside to take photos again!!

  1. You look fab, can't see the fear at all in these pics! Great idea to turn the open cardi into a wrap top, that's genius. x

  2. You look totally relaxed and lovely tho. Great idea to use a backdrop.

  3. Oh man! I still wish I had gotten that belt. It looks awesome on you.

  4. What a chic outfit, absolutely love the top with the bow belt! You are rocking these high wasted pants!

  5. Love how you styled these pants. You are super elegant and that python blouse is so cute. I will style similar pants this way. Thanks for inspiring me, Yvonne. =)

    Happy Hump Day! Ada. =)

  6. I think the backdrop looks great! Very professional. The pictures look great! And great idea to make the top more versatile - the wrap is so pretty!

  7. You look so awesome! These pants make you look SO tall!! Great backdrop! I wish I had room for that so I wouldn't have to go out into the freezing cold!
    Sincerely, Sara

  9. I think that backdrop is a great idea for those of us who live in cold climate areas. It's no fun taking pictures outdoors in 20 degree or below temperatures. Love your high waisted pants with the belt. Such a chic look! ~Cynthia

  10. Gorgeous look! Such a fabulous idea you had with your top - going to have to remember that one. It's funny how changes in our photo routines can throw us off. I am having to adapt to the time change and scrambling to find a new location closer to my office so the sun is actually up when I am ready to take photos. Just the unknown is making me freeze up.


Thank you so much for your comment! I can't wait to hear what you have to say :)
