Not Going Out Like That

Pink & Gray

31 Comments

I am lucky to have a pretty casual day-to-day wardrobe at work these days, but when I am going out to a meeting, I do have to look a little more buttoned up. Even then I avoid wearing the traditionmal dark suit or all black. For this look I layered a thin heather gray sweater with a gray blazer and my pink “slim cropped” Gap pants. I have these pants in red also and love them because they are so versatile and can easily switch from work appropriate to casual, depending on what shoes and top you pair them with.

I have started taking my own pics with a camera set up on a tripod. After finally getting a little more comfortable posing in alleys while a friend took pics, I now have to get comfortable standing in front of a tripod, while strangers walk by and think I am crazy. I also cant’ get my camera remote to work so I am running back and forth using the timer. If anyone out there reading lives in LA and wants to be my photog – please rescue me from the embarrasment I am currently experiencing !

  15. Pink and gray is a favorite combo of mine. I am hoping to get a tripod and remote soon. It would make things so much easier. Then I could go anywhere I please and take as many photos as I like w/o havng to worry about my husband getting bored.

    • I think if you are used to posing for another person, posing in front of a tripod is easier, since you have an idea of HOW to pose, and what looks best. I tried to tripod when I just started this blog and it was awful. I had no idea how to stand there without either looking like a corpse or overly posed.

  16. love the slightly cropped pant- so classy, so Audrey Hepburn! Following now from the GFC collective.

  17. this is a gorgeous chic fun outfit, those trousers are the best! xxx

  18. LOVE those pink pants! So fabulous. Found you from the GFC Collective :) Have a wonderful week, pretty lady!

  19. Pink and gray always work well together. Your outfit is no exception

  20. Love your outfit. Those pants look great on you!
    I hear you about the photos that is why I take all mine indoors!
    Good luck hope you find someone to help out.

  21. I’m at risk of sounding like a broken record…you do simple, chic really, really well. Lovely outfit today! I love how fresh and spring like the pants are, but you’ve held back just enough with the soft gray sweater and blazer.

    I know some bloggers get more comfortable with taking their own photos. But, I completely understand your discomfort. Hope you find someone to help out.
