Trying an "Outfit Post" on for Size



So far, I’ve been exploring different subjects to cover in this blog. At first, personal style seemed like a fun place to start, but it was a struggle to get good photos! My husband is not a photographer, and while I’ve styled dozens of photo shoots, I haven’t spent much time in front of the camera. So, I made my husband dig out his Digital SLR for Dummies book, and I studied up on my favorite style bloggers, who aren't just skilled at putting together amazing outfits but also at striking magazine-worthy poses (I’m in awe!).

With a little practice, we were able to get some snaps of my current go-to outfit. Last year, I was on the hunt for the perfect chambray shirt and fell in love with this “ex-boyfriend” style from Madewell. Paired with these ridiculously soft denim leggings, this duo just might be the comfiest combo in my closet (barring yoga pants and a hoodie).
To make things more interesting, I threw on a pair of fringe boots and grabbed my favorite bag, then we headed to the abandoned office buildings next to our apartment for a mini photo shoot.

  3. Love the leggins and the boots but they are so outside of my budget at $187 and $2,187 - so I am thinking you must have some shopping secrets. Any tips on how to find these items for less?
    BTW - Hubby has a second career calling :)

    1. Jenny, you're right -- these items are a bit pricey, so I'm definitely a strategic shopper! I held out on these black leggings for awhile and got them the day after Christmas, when Bloomingdales had everything temporarily marked down! I'm also a big fan of the sale racks at Gap and J. Crew and have been having good luck lately in the juniors department at Nordstrom, where everything is so much cheaper! :) You've given me a great idea -- a future post on an entire outfit under, say, $100?
