I know I’ve
complained about mentioned this before, but it remains a dilemma in my blogging life–it is so challenging to take outfit photos this time of year! On some days, I am in class until 5PM, which means I either have to get photos in the morning light, or “re-enact” my outfits on a weekend when I’m actually home for the hours of appropriate lighting.
On the day that I took these photos, I actually came home for lunch and noticed that it was a bit overcast outside (translation: no weird shadows to fight with). So I ran outside with my tripod! If I look a little preoccupied in these pictures, it’s because I was praying the sun wouldn’t re-appear…and that the pool guy wouldn’t show up! Blogging never ceases to be an adventure!
As for the outfit itself, I like the colors and the polka dots, but the ensemble makes me look a bit bulky through the middle. I guess that’s the nature of layering! I might have been better off just belting the dress and not the cardigan.
