Y’all, I don’t know how long it will take to not feel awkward/uncomfortable/nervous/silly taking pictures when people are around. Brett and I went to Moses Cone Memorial Park to take these, and I honestly think I had him park and repark the car three different times just to try to avoid other people as much as possible. I know that’s a little ridiculous. But how are you supposed to try to strike a pose when you have others watching and wondering what you’re doing? This goes back to that confidence thing I talked about in my very first post. I’ll get there… someday:)
|I just wish I could remember what Brett said to get that kind of response.|
I’ve definitely been on a stripe kick lately [ as evidenced here and here ]. This shirt is older, from Old Navy. It’s easy to pair with so many different outfits, including the endless colored pants that I have. The stripes are also shaped in a way that don’t make me feel like a referee [which can be a risk you take with black and white]. This tank is a little more form-fitting, and this one is by far the most similar I found. I really like the neckline on this one [and its $12!]. These jeans have such a great amount of stretch which immediately improves the comfort factor. I’m a sucker for dark jeans. They just add that dressy, classy feel to an outfit. This clutch [or one very similar] is found in most local boutiques. Really, you can find tan purses at almost any clothing store. This particular one came from Boone Belles.
The most comfortable wedges ever are once again making an appearance. If it weren’t for the many hills in Boone or the realism of shoes appropriate for teachers, they would get much more wear on a day-to-day basis. They’re from Altar’d State, a store that we are desperately missing out on up here. [They have a spot for prayer requests on their website. And part of the proceeds goes to education, food, and the wellness of children. Why wouldn’t you want to shop there?] I’m serious. This company rocks.
Bloggers, photographers, and extroverts out there, what do you do to be comfortable/make others comfortable in front of the lens?
Thank goodness that if it’s going to be anyone watching me fumble my way through it all, it’s my husband who’ll laugh and love me through it!
