Three

Fellow bloggers, does this ever happen to you?  Cute outfit, bad photos?  Today I had a major case of the bad photo blues for a number of reasons. We went out at a bad time of day to take photos and there were shadows everywhere.  The sun off the snow was blinding and I am squinting in 99% of all of my pictures.  My pale little legs actually blend in with the snow in these pictures.  All of that plus the wind just made it uber-difficult to get good pictures.  Oh well, live and learn.

Top (actually a dress): Limited
Skirt: LOFT
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Bag: Coach
Pin: thrifted
Pale legs: c/o winter

I am so digging the colors you put together here and I always love a little critter on an outfit. Lovely! And I think the super-bright photos actually just amplify the energy of the outfit.

Stunning color combo and I love the silky shimmer of the blouse too! The wind and the lighting actually look pretty cool, like you meant for the special effects.

Look at the little bug brooch...Love it! I'm really liking the purple and red combo plus those shoes are HOT!!!

Tiffany said...

I hate when the photos don't reflect the way you feel about an outfit! But like others have commented, the pale colors make the brights seem more vivid. Love the skirt-over-dress trick, it's my fave.

MONKEYFACE said...

KINSEY, we can still tell this outfit is PERFECT from these photos. Seriously. I am going to try to copy something like it for Valentine's Day!!

Fashion Therapist said...

You would have fooled me with the bad pics. Also, I honestly wouldn't have even known that was snow on the ground unless you had said something. Totally had me, but yes that happens to me all the time and that's where I wish my editing skills were a little bit better.

Chas said...

I think these pictures look awesome! I love the colours of your top and skirt! You look great!

Iris said...

This outfit is so retro chic I love it especially the super saturated colors...
