In The Forest

Saturday, July 7, 2012 82 0

Top: Zara. Dress (worn as skirt): H&M. Handbag: Balenciaga. Shoes: Zara. Necklace: Le Chateau. Ring: BCBG. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

When I decided to start this blog, my poor Man got suckered into becoming my unwilling photographer.  He’s been so wonderful with the nearly daily “photoshoots”, but really has no interest in photography or fashion.  For the first time since I began blogging, he actually showed interest when it came to taking these particular photos.  He said it looked like I was in the forest with this background, even though I’m just outside my apartment building in downtown Toronto, quite the opposite of a lush forest.  Gotta love these little tricks!

    I love this skirt print! My hubby is the same way! Most times, he’s like let’s take 3 photos and call it a day, other times he wants to do something odd he thinks will look good lol 🙂

    Wearing a dress as a skirt is one of my newfound favorite tricks! I absolutely adore the pattern on yours. So perfect for summer 🙂

    Haha! Great idea! My husband was initially my photographer but since his job takes him away most days, the jab was passed down to the boys whom actually loving the photo shoot bit! Looking great, sweetie!

    Love this outfit! How did you tuck the shirt into the dress so that it just looks like a skirt and top?

    My husband is the same way with taking photos for me, he gets mad because I always want to see how the pictures are looking. He has no interest in clothes or photography, but is still sweet enough to take my pictures when I ask. <3

      Thanks so much Lindsay! I’ll share my little secret that I use almost daily…double stick tape! I use it for everything, to stick up shirts that I can’t tuck in, to change the hem length on skirts, to keep blouses from popping open, to keep low cut tops taped to my bra so they sit a little higher, to tape my shirt to my bra straps so they don’t show, and so on. It really is an essential in my wardrobe!

    So, I wonder how many husbands/boyfriends are becoming professional photographers b/c their wives/girlfriends want to write a style blog?! 🙂 Ha! My poor husband… AND children… It is “most wonderful man in the world” my four year old on his scooter, and the baby strapped into the stroller with snacks galore while we do this in the 100+ degree weather… Not fun for anyone at times, but quite comical. At any rate, we are fortunate!! You look magnificent, and I love that dress as a skirt. Happy Weekend! Whitley

    Jenny, love the print and colours on your dress/skirt. What a great trick, I should try it out myself the next time :-). Always puts a smile on my face when you talk about your man and your controversal discussion about fashion :-D, I have the same with mine. Once in a while he shows interest too :-D. So excited when he visits me in 6 weeks, so can take the pics usually my neigbour girl does it :-D. have a wonderful weekend beautiful Jenny

    I love those shoes…they look so cute and probably are super comfy because of the small heel.

    Ha! My BF haaaates taking photos, he moans about it constantly but not more than my kids. My 7-year-old has major skills tho, so I think she will thank me later in life when she’s like, the next Annie Liebowitz or some such.

    Love the print on this dress/skirt Jenny and the texture on your pink shoes is great! I know what you mean about the “man whine”. I’ve noticed it recently and I think we may need to start a support group for our guys. Maybe they can all do a skype conference call haha.
