A Hint of Christmas: OOTD

Coat: ASOS || Sweater: American Eagle || Shorts: American Eagle || Tights: Marshall's || Scarf: Vintage Dior from Etsy

As I mentioned in my 2013 Roundup Post, one of my blog goals for 2014 is to include more fashion and Outfit of the Days. I ask that you please bear with me during this gradual inclusion. I'm still a n00b at OOTDs and I found myself completely out of my comfort zone as they are very different to photograph. Arm swatches and eye closeups are my only forte (so far).

Notice there is a lack of closeup pictures or shots of my shoes. I was teaching my "photographer" how to manual focus but he was having a hard time. Plus, let's just say he didn't quite grasp the concept of an Outfit of the Day, lol. :) My favorite thing from this ensemble is the tartan scarf because I love tartan prints and it's vintage. It was a great find. If you love thrifting I highly suggest browsing Etsy because you can find some gems from the comfort of your own home. (Not sponsored by Etsy, I swear!) The tights were a dark shade of green so this whole outfit had a bit of a (belated) holiday feel. 

Have a good weekend, lovelies! P.S. Thanks to all who have clicked "follow" via Bloglovin' as I recently reached 2800 readers. I already have a giveaway planned for the 3k mark in order to show my appreciation.

  12. Your photographer grasped the concept way better than my, ahem, photographer when I wanted to shoot an outfit one day! You look beautiful.

    1. Hahaha. It's understandable. When non-bloggers want their pictures taken the focus is either on them or the background. When bloggers want an OOTD picture the focus is on the clothes and that's a weird concept for anyone who doesn't read blogs lol.

  14. It's great that you're trying out new things, more often. I remember your last ootd was probably a year ago! The shorts are my favorite part of this outfit, hehe.

  30. Don't you just wish you would have a photographer near you every time you need to take outfit photos? It is such a mission impossible doing it by yourself with a tripod or having someone who can't quite handle the camera taking photos for you. XD
