My favorite posts to write are letters to Guinevere, and outfit of the day posts. So when I bought this bright green jacket (ahem, emerald – aka Pantone color of the year), I knew I wanted to post pictures. I have dozens of combinations in my head for wearing this come Spring, but for a dreary and rainy February day in DC, basic black seemed appropriate.
No access to a photographer (husband is working late on my birthday – sad face) and hesitant to set my tripod up outside in its normal location, I went to the driveway with my camera safe in the garage. So it stayed nice and dry, and I made sure to rapid fire shoot these before heading off to get Guinevere from daycare at the end of the day. Thus, you get the shitty light, wrinkled pants and jacket, and flatter-than-it-was-this-morning hair.
Pictures are blurry as all hell (thanks fog/rain/dreary clouds) and the umbrella is definitely not my accessory of choice, but as this is a real life blog…well, this was my real life 😉
Fellow OOTDers – who takes your pictures? Yourself on a tripod or a friend/partner? Do you tend to take them before heading out for the day, or after work/school? Or, do you stockpile photoshoots on weekends and then post them later? Please share your secrets, oh wise ones.
