What I Wore: Classic Blue & Messy Hair

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Does anyone else out there sometimes absolutely hate a whole set of photos they took? I ask because I really don't like the way I look here, maybe it is the messy hair, maybe it is the fact that it was too dark to take photos without a flash at 3pm(!) or maybe I am just being fussy. Either way, I don't like these photos.  
I feel like I've been too busy to do anything properly lately. My to-do list is going down, but everything I have managed has been so rushed that I don't have any pride in it. These photos are the perfect example. If I had put just a little bit more effort into them they would have been great, but I didn't, so they aren't. 
Anyway, I'm going to stop complaining and go for a nice walk. Fingers crossed I will get up to Blackford Hill before it gets to dark and I can take some slightly better outfit photos. Hope you all are having a good week xo
Dress: Thrifted (originally H&M) // Belt: Tbrifted // Cardigan: H&M // Shoes: Peacocks

  1. i think these are lovely photos and blue is so your colour! But yes, i OFTEN have those days when i throw a mahoosive strop and say to myself im not posting them, and then post them and hate them. But weirdly it normally turns out that everyone else likes those photos etc. And thats the case here, i think you look fab, and i like the darkness of the day, it makes you look vibrant and beautiful in your blue hues :)xx

  2. I agree with Rachel...I think these pictures are lovely. The darker hues of your outfit go lovely with your muted purple hair but the red shoes are a nice burst of vibrancy. I love everything about how you've put this outfit together! I know that feeling though of not having not done an outfit justice. Whether it's getting the backdrop, the lighting or the framing of the pics themselves right - it can sometimes be tempting to just scrap them and do a retake. But  I think you made the right call publishing these lovely ones. PS: Just noticed your lovely mittens...very nicely coordinated :)

  5. I have days like that ALL the time.  It's easy to do when you compare yourself to other bloggers who have professional photographers with fancy cameras helping them out.  But I like the way your hair looks.  And I think that blue is a great color on you!

  6. This is a really lovely dress, I love it with the cardigan and the bright flats! I have that happen where I hate every photo in a set too!

  7. I actually LOVE this set of pictures but sometimes I have photos which just didn't work which is BEYOND frustrating, especially when you love an outfit but it photographs terribly!

    The early darkness is so annoying! which is why I am only taking pictures at the weekend!

  9. I like how you look in these photos! And your outfit is adorable - you look great in blue. 

    I know exactly what you mean, though. I would say half the time I end up hating the photos for one reason or another. Sometimes I trash them, and sometimes I just try editing the lighting/coloring until I like them. It can be frustrating to say the least!!
