#BloggerProblems




Dress (Limited); Vest (Eastside find at Marshalls); Tights & Necklace (Target);
Sunglasses (Charming Charlie); Shoes (Naturalizer)

Most people have an outfit in mind for an occasion... a wedding date night, party, reunion, etc.  I wore this gray and brown combo specifically for the brightly colored wall, which makes zero sense since I didn't walk around with the graffiti wall as my backdrop all day. But when I saw all of the loud colors I thought it was so fun, and wanted a neutral outfit to compliment it.  Which again, sounds odd but it's the truth - and maybe admitting I have a problem is the first step to recovery? If you ever want to feel more normal about the random issues that bloggers have - go to twitter and search #bloggerproblems... I'm pretty sure dressing for a wall is one of them :)

Haha, I love this! I had one of those #bloggerproblems days yesterday when I didn't want to take outfit photos because I hated my outfit. :) I think a neutral outfit was perfect for that backdrop. Love that comfy dress!

Tasia |Ruffles and Sequins| said...

Helene said...

hahahaha i love this. yes.

Natalia A said...

You don't have a problem, that's for sure. I don't even take outfit photos, but always look for walls and pretty spots just in case I will get out there, clothes and all. :) Great photos! x

Sarah Hartley said...

Haha! I love that you dressed for the wall. I'm sure the wall appreciated it.

Katie- Hems for Her said...

Ah!! I am the same way! I match (or contrast) outfits and places. It makes perfect sense to bloggers, I think! Awesome wall, and perfect outfit to complement it!

Where is that wall? It's totally awesome - I don't blame you for wanting to dress just to take a picture in front of it! Your neutral outfit looks fantastic in front of it! (I also think your neutral outfit will look great away from it too though!)

TheTinyHeart said...

Haha! The colorful wall made an awesome backdrop for your outfit!

Trenchcoats to Tiaras said...

Ahhh, it does make sense though! (Maybe I have a problem too? I'm not dressing for walls, but I am understanding...) I suppose it's a way of thinking of the photographs you take as art, and of treating them as such, and it definitely worked for this, because this combination looks so cool against this backdrop.

That dress fits you so perfectly everywhere! And I love the legnth of the sleeves--dresses with longer sleeves look so good, but are so hard to find!

hahaha, but one surely need to dress up for such a fabulous back drop! Seriously, even i need an amazing back drop like that in my life and I already can see myself posing in a black and white outfit!
I think we both need counseling, what say?
