What I Wore: Classic Stripe with Bold Statement

8:59 AM

Today outfit is a maxi skirt that I decided to dress up with a black cardigan. This cardigan is a happy medium to a black blazer I have been eyeing. I added the statement necklace and clutch to give this outfit a little pop. I honestly did not plan on doing this post, and it really was just a tester photo-shoot to try out different setting on my camera, but since these photos came out so well, I decided to release them.

It finally clicked why my pictures were not as crisp as I wanted. As I mention previously, it is getting darker in the morning, and that fact was affecting my pictures. So now I decided to take it much later while heading to work vs. just taking my picture when I step out my door.










Outfit Consist of Maxi Skirt (Amazon) | Cami (Dots) | Checker Clutch (AliExpress) | Flat (Rocket Dog)

My makeup consist of what I consider my essentials, blush is M•A•C Raizin Matte Blush, and my lip color is Viva Glam VI outline with Chestnut, and prep with the EOS Lip Balm.

  12. You look so beautiful, as usual! I love the bright pop your statement necklace gives to the look. And I agree--I've only been taking outfit photos since the summer started, so trying to figure out lighting and when I can snap some photos as the days get shorter is a struggle...
