Winter Looks

Finding primo locations to take outfit photos is hard during the winter. It's not even snowing in my neck of the woods, but I cannot stand being outside at all. I stumbled upon this narrow hallway near my comic books shop a few days ago and just had to take advantage of the lack of inquisitive passers-by. Then I skedaddled over to the bakery to get myself a salted caramel cupcake

Where do you take OOTD photos during the winter?

  3. Oh my word! Fav outfit you've worn ever...this colour blue is just really, really beautiful on you. And that's such a cute blazer! Your salted caramel cupcake makes me jealous...there's an ice cream shop by my house that's been voted "#1 in America" that has the BEST salted caramel ice cream :) I've been trying to figure out where to take photos 'cause it's -17 here in MN...and dark by 4! Will you still read my blog if I take stairwell photos at work?

  4. I love this blazer like whoaaaaa, dude. I just want to pet it.

    I take pictures outside even when it is freezing and snowing and icing and crap. Because I'm crazy. Unless Mr. A vehemently opposes this weekend ... Then, we will have to find an indoor location.

  7. This is one of my favorites of your outfits. The blue looks great and I love the velvet blazer and floral print. I feel a sudden urge to pair my velvet blazer with everything.

  10. Love the monochrome theme going on, you play it well! Also; SALTED CARAMEL CUPCAKE? We have a mocha like that at Starbucks but cupcakes > mochas....

  11. Loving all the blue here! Oh and salted caramel cupcake sounds dellllliiiicciioouuusss!! AH, you have made me so hungry right now... haha. Well, Panama doesn't have winter so I don't usually have that problem; but when I lived in the U.S. I would just tough it and take pictures in the snow. It wasn't very fun a lot of times, I wish I would have found a corridor like you did :)

  18. I take OOTD shots in the front of my apartment and it is awful :P You've seen it. I need to be more creative, but it's cold and I don't like the cold :P

    I need some colored tights - they are so awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Gorgeous color tights! I haven't had to deal much with the cold (knock on wood) so I still take my photos outside. But you might try at a library or college inside a different location. I saw a really fun library photo shoot on another blog.

  22. First off, I have to tell you, you did a fabulous job on the skirt that you made for Courtney! She looked absolutely stunning in it. Speaking of fabulous blue clothing, I love this outfit - the blazer, the dress, those bright blue colored tights, just lovely. One can never go wrong with cupcakes or caramel, my boyfriend and I bought a box of Famous Amos cookies from Costco and it has been really hard not to eat a package with every meal or instead of a meal....

  25. You look so pretty! :) I love the dress you're wearing :)

    Like you've seen, I take my pictures inside, which is boring, I know, but when it is -18 degrees Celsius outside, I don't feel like posing in a top :D

    Have a great weekend, my friend! ;) ♥ xoxo

  26. Laura, you look gorgeous! That dress is swoon worthy and the blazer just tops off the outfit beautifully. Someday I want to dress just like you! :)

  27. love the blazer and the tights with heels. the cupcake looks delish! i feel like salted caramel could become a dangerous addiction...

    i try and buy white-light bulbs [instead of the yellowy kind] and take pics against one of the relatively plain walls of my apartment

  33. indoors when it's raining but i super hate the low light and i only use point and shoots for outfit shots.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I LOVE this look! Especially that blazer! I have one very similar that I got at Old Navy years ago and it still hangs in my closet.

  36. Fantastic look, I absolutely love the blue tights!

  37. Love the photo location ingenuity! For me, outside is a necessity even in harsh winter and deep snow because I just hate the light in my apartment. (But, if I found an empty hallway without curious bystanders in a warm room, I'd definitely take advantage of it. So yay for back alleys in comic shops!) I love the velvet blue blazer!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I take my photos indoors inside my condo, or sometimes if there is a lot of natural light in the commercial center of my building. I know how you feel about finding creative photographing locations in this lousy time of the year. Gorgeous blazer Laura, I've been looking for something similar...and of course you found yours at a thrift store ahhhh!

  39. I love your blue velvet blazer Laura! I got two this christmas: grey and black. I love wearing mine. That dress is fab. It's a gorgeous print and the blue tights really pull everything together from head to toe. Have a fab weekend girl! :)

  43. I love love love the superman blue tights and the awesome pattern on the dress! Makes me miss wearing tights in awesome colours. I think that outfit photos are difficult in the winter, or if you don't have a tripod/willing partner. Which is why I haven't had any recently.

  44. Your jacket is absolutely gorgeous, so elegant <3

  45. Oh Laura.... blue velvet, be still my heart. Love love love. I keep saying that I need to get blue tights, too. I take photos outside in the snow. I think I'm actually a penguin. I love cold weather, although I detest cold and wind.

    ReplyDelete
  46. love this jacket and also your blog! It's so nice!!! I follow you!
    Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D

  47. I love blue on you :) you look wonderful!

  48. I think you're braver than brave for your OOTD posts. I haven't gotten the guts to do them myself. I even have on an outfit I'm really proud of today that consists of really affordable amazing thrift store score's but haven't had my photo taken. But enough about me. I wanted to take the time to tell you that this blue blazer is officially my favourite color on you. It's stunning. Especially paired with that lip color. Very well done!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I finally ventured outside today to take OOTD pics and brrr that won't be happening too often! I just love this look on you- that deep blue is perfect and yay for cupcakes!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh jeez, I love the blue tones of this outfit! You are just adorable. I feel the same way, but I stay strong and stand out int he cold for pictures. That's probably why I'm getting sick!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love the pop of color blue in this outfit! Still looking hot despite the cool color :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. A blue velvet blazer! Gah, it looks so cozy! I still haven't found a blazer of my own yet. I might go thrifting tomorrow, so there's a slight chance there. The blue tones in this outfit are really lovely.

    Oh, you know me. I often venture outside into the cold for my pictures! As of late, though, the idea has become a little repulsive to me. Hehe.

  53. Are express tights good quality? Out of all the tights out there, do they stand out? Just wondering!

    1. i love express tights, but only buy them on sale, like when they're $10, I think. They last forever and are really opaque! Simply Vera Wang is another brand that I really like for colored tights. but if you can find colored HUE tights, those are amazing!

  54. Oh my goodness Laura, your hair has gotten SO long, it's very pretty. You're very pretty!! And might I add that those blue tights are awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  55. love the blues! the tights are awesome!! guess i don't really have to worry about the "winter" weather...but if we do have rain, then i'm screwed! i recently had salted chocolate....very interesting and yummy!

    [oomph.]

  56. I love how beautiful your hair is growing out now Laura! And those blue leggings are gorgeous. I went out and bought my first pair of blue colored jeans this weekend, I think they might be the same exact color as your leggings. Can't wait to wear them!
