I wanted to talk about a little of what goes on behind the scenes of one of my blog shoots. There are times where a I got through funks. I feel like I don't have any great or new ideas. But I have an idea of something I Think would look good! For this post it was this very look -the paper bag shorts and crop top- but with a denim jacket, navy blue heels, and a big, blue bag.
In my head, I really thought the blues would tie the look together and it would look great. Upon taking and editing the pictures, I didn't hate them per se.... but I also felt like something was missing.
I knew I liked the crop top with the shorts. That was my goal was to find ways to compliment that look.
My first thought was to go more casual with the Walmart brand Keds and the denim jacket. And as I put the Keds on with the look, my eye happened to fall on this purple/pink colored scarf that I've had for years! And on a whim I tried it with the look and LOVED it! I even completely ditched the jacket!
The pink/purple color of the scarf blends absolutely perfectly with the crop top and adds some added detail and texture to the look. Plus the the tennis shoes add a touch of casual that I think is appropriate for this look as opposed to the heels. In my opinion. I'm curious as to what you guys think.
I feel like it is so much more effortless. And sometimes that is the thing. If you are struggling with what to wear, maybe just walk away and come back to the look. Sometimes you need fresh eyes. Sometimes the right look is right in front of you. I personally didn't feel like the first -with the heels, bag, and jacket- weren't quite right. I posted a few pictures of that look just to give you an idea.
But if you don't like it, keep trying different things until you find what you do like! It will be worth it! I think it is for this post for sure!
