What I Wore: Berries & A BeretThursday, October 25, 2012
I'm so pleased, I finally found somewhere I feel comfortable taking outfit photos near our new flat! I've walked through this little alleyway quite a few times recently, admiring the bright red leaves that are spilling over the walls and the texture of the stone walls. It can be pretty busy at certain times of day, but if you go at just the right time in the afternoon it is quiet enough to set up without too many awkward encounters. I'm hoping I can find somewhere a little bit more quiet, but in a pinch this is a beautiful spot.
I think I've worried about this on here before, but I'm actually starting to get seriously worried about outfit photos this Winter. We had the most incredibly foggy day yesterday, and according to the weatherman we might be getting snow and freezing fog this weekend. Perfect. I'm trying to soak up every moment of sunlight I can before darkness descends, and take every opportunity I have to take outfit photos. I think I am going to have to give up and find somewhere in the flat eventually though, or accept that I won't have any 'what I wore' posts between November and March. Any advice on taking nice outfit photos inside? There are a couple of bloggers who do it really well (Kate and Becky are the first who come to mind) but I'd love some more inspiration/advice.
I found these berry coloured tights hiding at the back of one of my drawers and just knew they would be the perfect colour to wear with my newly coloured hair. As usual I'm totally behind the times, these babies were all the rage last Winter. I got them back in March for 50p but never even took them out the packet till yesterday. To be honest I wasn't sure if the cut out bits were a bit too much, but with a pair of black tights underneath it was much more subtle, plus I was nice and cosy, especially with my hat, scarf and gloves - yes, I really cannot handle the cold!
