I recognize that there are at least 3 pieces I need to work on in order to make this project effective.
First, I need to learn how to model better. I’m not used to taking outfit pictures, and I am clearly not in my comfort zone yet. I’m bookmarking this tutorial on A Beautiful Mess to give me some inspiration and ideas rather than me just standing around looking somewhat silly. I’m also thinking that I really like the idea of wearing some lip color.
Secondly, I need to work on taking pictures of everything. Last night I made a vegan version of this butternut squash and quinoa stew by not using chicken and subbing water for the chicken broth. I actually enjoyed it more than the version with chicken. I did take a lovely set-up shot with all my ingredients.
Lovely, and delicious looking, yes? However, I completely forgot to take a picture of the finished product. Whoops! It was good though, trust me. Next time I need to remember to take pictures of the WHOLE process. I am getting slightly more comfortable with my camera though, and that’s a huge improvement.
Last week I posted about my love of leggings, specifically those from Black Milk. As it happens, I have some on their way to me right now. This week, there was a fantastic post on the Too Many Tights! blog about leggings interventions. We Need to Have a Little Talk did a great job of explaining why it’s so easy to love buying from them.
Dress – H&M
Cardigan – H&M
Belt – Banana Republic
Shoes – Jean-Michel Cazabat
Pearls – bought in Hawaii
Yesterday I thought I’d dress up a bit for work. I love this dress because there are so many colors in it that it looks completely different depending on how I accessorize. Excuse my posture, please reference “need to learn how to model” earlier.
Lastly, I really need to try to be better about actually posting. It’s a work in progress, yes?
