tulip skirt

YOU MAY NOTICE that I take a lot of my outfit shots where I'm surrounded by greenery. The curse of living in the suburbs, I guess! I always feel like my readers think I go for these long walks in the park or something, wearing my flowy dresses, heels and statement jewellery (trust me, I don't!). Reality is, I like the forest-like scenery better than residential housing, because that's basically my other option for a photo location before I head off to class or whatnot. I only wish I had a photographer that I could keep in my pocket and take out at the opportune moments for a great shoot.

So, I envy you, you bloggers in the city! I can't wait to one day move out to downtown Vancouver, or at least close by, and experience city life. Any tips on taking outfit photos? Do you use a tripod or get together with someone to snap a couple shots?
Enjoy your Wednesday everyone!

  1. I'm always in the exact same spot for outfit photos too since we have to take them real quickly when my fiance gets home from work. I wish I had more interesting backgrounds too. Anyway, love your skirt!

  2. I live in the suburbs too! My cousin, who's my photographer, lives downtown so I meet her there once a week to take photos and everyone thinks I live in the city! We do shoot in the suburbs too, and when I'm driving around my neighbourhood I always take note of different locations that aren't so green, lol. Anyways, your outfit is super cute! I love the pink tulip skirt paired with the grey tee and rhinestone necklace. Looks comfy and chic!


  3. I totally wish I had greenery around me as an option! But being that I live in Brooklyn the closet I can get is the Brooklyn Bridge Park or Prospect Park and those are both still a trip for me. So brownstone back drops it is lol. Loveeeee your pink skirt. And your necklace. this look is simple and sophisticated. It's a great look from office to date night.


  4. first off, you look adorable, I love the casual tee with a structured skirt and statement jewels- perfect!

    second, this post is hilarious!! I am lucky enough to have a boyfriend who (somewhat reluctantly) snaps my pics while we are out an about, but I feel the same way about wishing I had someone in my pocket... I have yet to try the tripod, but I think that would be more embarrassing than having him shoot me in public... anyway, these photos are lovely! Following you of course!

  5. I live in Vancouver too, so I know how you feel. We're always surrounded by green (not necessarily a bad thing). It's usually my only choice of "background" when I snap a pic.

  6. So pretty! Love the skirt. I honestly go right outside my house so that's why my backgrounds are almost always the same... But I use my trusted tripod. It makes taking photos SO much easier.

  7. Pretty! The greenery is perfect for summer.


  8. i love this look chelle, so pretty!

    i take my own photos, using a mini tripod & self-timer, in my backyard. i wish i were more adventurous and would make more time in the day to do some more interesting shoots!

  9. I live in the suburbs as well and there is no place for outfit photos!! I get together with Leonie (www.thesignaturebow) once a week and we take outfit shots you should come with!


  10. OH! I didnt mention, we take the photos downtown!

  11. Now this is a beautiful skirt! I can totally understand your photographer issues! I almost always have a friend around to help me out!

  15. Great outfit! I love the skirt and the necklace! :)

  16. I love the green of the suburbs! It's one of the reasons I don't know if I see myself moving downtown.

    I'm just jealous you have a way to take photos outside at all. I don't have anyone to take my pictures, since I take them in the morning before work and no one in my house is awake yet. It sucks because I know my blog would be infinitely better, even if I had a backdrop of houses!


Let me know your thoughts!
