Anatomy of a picture

I would like to reach out to all you bloggers out there who take darling self-portraits, how do you do it?

I'm really awkward when taking pictures of myself and would like some tips. As you can see from the image above, I need some serious help.

Derek's uniform

I thought I'd share the boyfriend's uniform with you all. AA tri blend track shirt (just like me, except he wears the crew neck) and good ole' Levi's. Aren't boys in Levi's just so darn adorable?

Here's a funny story. I was telling my boyfriend how much I like the "boyfriend jeans" trend because they are so comfy. So he says, here try my jeans on (actual boyfriend jeans--not women's boyfriend jeans) and guess what? They fit like a glove, as in borderline too tight. That is not the look I'm going for. So I told him I need a boyfriend who wears bigger jeans. Of course, he could have responded with, I need a girlfriend with smaller hips and thighs, but he didn't. He's a nice boy.

Andy's uniform

Andy mentioned that her "uniform" consisted of many dresses and her chucks. I love my chucks but haven't seen much of them since the snow arrived.

To get Andy's look:

dress and shoes.

Thanks for sharing Andy! xo

Nicki's uniform...

Nicki from the cherry blog mentioned her "uniform" consisted of a baggy men's shirt and leggings. Thanks for sharing love!

Andy, you're next!


So, I've found myself lately wearing a "uniform." Same sort of outfit everyday. American Apparel tri-blend track shirt and loose-fitting jeans/boyfriend jeans (currently abusing a pair I got at J Crew for dirt cheap).

I guess it's wintertime and it's easy to get into a rut. My sister used to make fun of herself for always wearing the same thing (dark jeans, white tee) and call herself a cartoon character.

Do you have a uniform during wintertime or anytime?

Lovely curiosities...

I finally got my hands on this little treasure:
I was squealing as I flipped through the pages, such beautiful little illustrations. So much inspiration and so many new words to add to my daily vocabulary. Rhododendron anybody?
