What I Wore Wednesday

Photographing myself has been unsuccessful... Bad lighting, mirror too small, wrong lens? IDK... Any tips would be appreciated!!!!!!!! What I realize from doing this is that I can put together decent outfits... the hard part is the outfits being practical for a mama of 4 and all it entails.

Due to all of my photo challenges, I have had to enlist photographers....

Last Thursday.. Working in Graham's Preschool Class
My husband took this one, he was in a hurry sooo my eyes were all crazy... cropped them off. ha 
Basic Black cable Sweater-New- (old Navy)- On clearance 7.54$ or something like that.
Jeans: Lucky Brand- From the new thrift- 3$- these are perfect for knocking around as they are faded and were 3$ so if they get ruined... no big deal
Scotty dog rain boots- have had for YEARS- Local department store- Mccoulas
Grey Ribbed tank- target-New 
Cream Rosey Scarf- made by me... you can find one of the many I have and am making HERE...  I will take custom orders, I have two waiting to photograph.

Friday- at Work... Took my camera with me and had my co-worker snap a few... pretty sure she thinking I am crazy for asking her to take my picture:)

 Saturday- Work
I built this outfit around the tights. I got them at old navy on clearance while I was bday shopping...they were $2.49.
Normally, I would have put brown with this skirt as there is a bit of tan in the tweed... but my fashionista of a hubby and I both agreed that the grey looked good with the skirt. I would also wear boots or different shoes, however standing on cement floors all day ... only allows comfy shoes.

I think you got some good shots! I love your outfits. Checking on the gray cardi pic and your hair looks awesome in a headband. Go you! I am working on how to take self pics too, so I'm going to check back later to see if anyone leaves you good tips!

You look cute! I like the light blue cardigan! As for photos, I use a tripod and a remote shutter trigger. I have a canon dslr, by the way. It looks like you have good light on your porch. Those photos look good!

I love all of your cardigans! I have a serious obsession myself.

Cute outfits! I use a tripod, turn on all my over head lights on and never stand in from of a window. I have one good place in my house and that is where I take my pictures.
