I went with kind of a safari theme with this outfit. I've been wanting to wear this shirt again, but it's getting too cold to wear it by itself, hence the layering. Although I really like the shape and pattern on this skirt, I could do without the asymmetrical ruching detail on the left side. That's why it looks like there's a weird fold in the front of my skirt in these pictures.
In other news, this was not the most deserted place to take pictures at...I was thinking about picture location the other day. There are plenty of examples of bloggers who do a specific type of location well. Some have gorgeous outdoor shots in a variety of locations (Animated Cardigan); some have well-lit indoor shots in their fancy houses (The Chloe Conspiracy); some have metropolitan, street-style-type shots (Blonde Bedhead); some stand in the same place in all their photos (FutureLint). I guess I have a low budget combination of the first two. Ideally, I'd totally want to have a really sunny room where I can take all my photos inside, but our north-facing house isn't terribly conducive to that. But what do I know? I'm not a photographer.
My question to you - when you're reading blogs, what do you think about the location of the outfit photos? Do you have a preference? Do you care as long as they're of a certain quality? Or as long as the type of location is consistent? I'm curious. I'd like to at least aim for consistency, if I decide to change anything here. I know this is just a hobby blog, but I'd still like it to be a somewhat entertaining one. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
