november blue

I took these photos the other day while my husband Tim was at work.
With daylight savings time in full swing, he's been getting home after the sun goes down.
So I took it upon myself to try out some self-portraits.
I set up a tripod in my living room & played around with the pretty sunshine beaming through the windows.
Pretty fun!

And I tried out a pretty scarf tutorial I found from Hello, It's Valentine.

shirt: gift from my sis
skirt, scarft, belt & boots: thrifted

I love going out & having fun with outfit shots with Tim or my sister,
but this was fun too.
I think I'll try out some more self-done outfit shots this week.
Does anyone else do your own outfit shots?
Any good tips/tricks?

Have a beautiful Monday!

  1. you are absolutely gorgeous!! i *love* your hair and your headband. lovely girl.


  2. love love love your eye makeup! gorgeous girl. and that outfit looks so sweet & sophisticated...but still cozy.

  3. They came out really nice, well done! I adore the stripe skirt and the headband for sure!!

    I take my pictures with a tripod and remote and I've come to prefer it because then I'm my own artistic director and don't have to wait for someone else. I find it gives me more freedom.

    Seems like you are off to a really good start already! And doing the two will give you a lot of latitude.
