So I did the outfit of the day pictures yesterday and I am not thrilled with how they came out. I am coming to realize it isn't me, it's Juan. Or at least he is an easy target. He is my photographer and yesterday we had about 10 minutes to get the pictures taken before I had to leave to meet up with the girls. I would pose and it would look like he took the picture, so I would move and nope he is sitting there taking his time and decides to snap right when I move. Ugh! To make matters worse my camera battery was dying which only serves to slow the camera down more. I think we are going to need to switch and use his fancy Nikon for outfit of the day posts.
I knew I would have limited time, so I wore an outfit that I could "change up" enough to wear out for an evening of wine with the girls.
This is how I wore it to work. I am wearing a pair of black pant/leggings that I got last year at Ross for like $10 under a dress I grabbed at target for $17. I paired it with a suit jacket from Arden B that was about $50 and a pair of Steve Madden shoes I snagged on clearance for $14 from Ross. For accessories I am wearing the Alex & Ani bracelets I got for my birthday that were $28 each. I have worn them every day since I got them. The necklace is from Charlotte Russe and I forget where I got the earrings from. In the first picture John was more focused on including the windsurfer in the picture. Here I am posing for my "nail" blog with my hand closed! I was trying to get a bit more creative in the second picture - I obviously need more practice!
For the evening, I took the pants off, brought down where the "belt" of the dress is, so it would sit lower on my waist and removed the jacket. Hey it's still in the 90's here in FL. I was dying taking the pictures with the jacket and pants at the beach! Either way I am so loving the versatility of this dress! It is so comfy and cute! I think I should have grabbed it in a smaller size though. It makes me look a bit bigger than I am with the wind blowing the way it does on the beach. HA!
I did a quick polish change before leaving the house since my previous manicure was chipping. I had high hopes for this color. It is Inglot 963. It is a silver/purple. It was a bit to streaky for me, but I love the color. The effect is pretty cool. Oh well. It was a great night with great friends and that's what counts.
