OOTD: Why I hardly post Outfits

Taking outfit pics is so much fun! Well, at least if you live in LA. Or if your boyfriend is a photographer. I don't live in LA. My boyfriend isn't a photographer. Nor is anybody else I know. Instead I live in a small, windy, unsettled hicktown up in the north of Luxemburg. We don't have any pretty buildings over here, nor do we have fun colourful walls or any other cool background for pics. If I wanted to choose an interessting setting for my pics I would have to get into my car and drive for at least 15 minutes. Today I thought it we be about time to take some outfit pics again. I also had a cute outfit in mind which I would wear to a party this evening. But wait... this evening. That means at 7pm which means that it will already be dark outside. I mean really pitch dark! Okay what could I do? I decided to get ready at 1pm for a party which would only take place in 6 hours. Who cares if I'm sitting at home all afternoon looking completely overdressed? (Well at the moment I'm home alone so really nobody cares, haha!) I was totally convinced that today I would be able to take good pics. The sun was shining, I felt comfortable in my outfit and there is this new 50mm lens I just only got, remember? Okay so while at 1pm the sun was still shining it wasn't anymore at 2pm. Instead it had become windy, whirlwind-windy to be exact. Oh and let's not forget to mention that it was -5°C (whindchill factor). So I stood there in my sheer blouse and my summer skirt with a "fresh breeze" going through my hair and I tried to smile. Which I somehow managed to do (okay it's not a really cheerful smile though...) Besides from the fact that I could only use 2/10 of the pics I had been taking with the help of my sister (who did her best but isn't a born photographer), I'm quite satisfied with what I am posting above. Why I am doing this to myself? I have no idea, haha! Probably because I love fashion and because I want to show that I wear cool stuff from time to time as well. But honestly my entire respect goes to those girls who are in the same conditions as I am and still go through this every day! You are awesome! And now everybody knows why I hardly post outfit pics. Kind regards to the bloggers in LA.

Outfit: skirt - C&A, blouse - Vero Moda, top - H&M, necklace - Laurèl, boots - Deichmann

  4. I can totally relate to the thing about using 2/10 shots! It's so hard to get good photos for outfit posts lol
    Anyways, nice outfit. Have fun at the party :)

  5. Do more outfit posts, I love this!!! I'm kinda desperate for a photographer boyfriend haha so I have to get creative. :P

  6. Oh Gott du sprichst mir 100%ig aus dem Herzen!
    Genau so geht es mir auch. :(

  7. Don't sweat it, many bloggers do not do "posing" posts. I do not do it often either and for many of the same reasons, but is also super saturated and may be a trend that is bit over done so really nothing to worry about. Heh, you do look cold and I agree LA is probably the best place to be a blogger in some ways. Good weather, good light, very good light actually and not having to take public transits and plenty of space.

  10. So true, sometimes, it is very difficult to take pictures.
    Your outfit is very cute Carmen, love your beautiful skirt. Have a lovely weekend :)

  11. I know, taking pictures so often can be really hard.. You have so many great ideas for posts and I love your blog because of it, not only outfits all the time! And I love these pictures too <3

  12. Considering the icy cold weather outside, this outfit is a knockout Carmen, you look beautiful, love the skirt and statement necklace. I enjoyed reading this post, yes it would be ideal if we all lived in snazzy cities and had our own personal photographers. lol. Thanks for your wonderful words!

  13. HaHa Carmen! I feel your pain doll. That's why I don't do them often either. I admire fashion bloggers that do it everyday. It's amazing what they can do. With all that said, you look beautiful. I love your outfit. Very pretty skirt & top and your necklace is gorgeous. You did a great job!

  14. haha! Love ur outfit! It is really difficult to make outfit posts in Austria... it is so cold, that I do not want to take my black coat off...!!!


  15. lovely outfit!

  16. Love the blouse and the necklace! I don't have any "photographer", this is one of the reasons why I don't do outfit posts...
