When I saw Cynthia's post about problems taking outfit photos with point & shoot cameras, I could totally relate. Look at this.
Clearly, I was having issues this morning. For starters, now that fall is approaching, the sun is coming up later, which is giving me new morning light to work with. I tried to adjust my camera location accordingly, but my camera decided to focus on the recycle bin on my porch (which I've cropped out) instead of me. Trying again...
Good light and focus here, but damn, where did my feet go? Okay, third time's a charm...
Feet! But wait, that's not right either. At this point in the morning, I was about 2 minutes away from flying out the door, so I had already changed into my Birkenstocks, since they're nice and supportive for the walk to the train. Of course, when I looked at the footless pictures on my camera and set it up to take one more round, I forgot I was wearing the wrong shoes. So I gave up.
And here's the shoes. They were totally the highlight of my otherwise very simple outfit. I picked these up while shopping on Chicago's Fashion's Night Out last week and couldn't wait to wear them! If it's possible, they're even cuter in person.
Speaking of things I'm copying from Cynthia, she and I are embarking on yet another No Repeats Challenge starting this Thursday, September 15th. I'm getting a bit bored with my work wardrobe as of late so that'll be my main focus. Unlike Cynthia, I only go to the office 3 days/week, so I won't be repeating any clothing items on office days (read: blogging days) during the challenge (shoes and accessories may be a little tough, but I'll try). I don't have as much casual clothing, so me sticking to that on weekends or work-from-home days isn't quite as practical for me (seriously, I don't have enough yoga pants to cover that). The point of this challenge, for me, is to be more creative with my office wear. If you'd like to join us, think about where your wardrobe could use a little sprucing up, and comment on Cynthia's post to let us know you'd like to participate. So yes, this is the least formal style blogger challenge ever. No, there's not really any set, specific rules. It's a challenge defined by you, for you. Make sense? Clear as mud?
