Hustle

Since I've been dog sitting and away from my closet, tripod and remote, outfit photos for the week almost didn't happen.
Because of schedules and such, I had less than half an hour to get my outfits on photographed. I had done most of my planning the night before but barely accessorized and ended up pulling a few things out of the dirty pile. (whatever, everyone does it!)
It was 14° out today but I swear I didn't even feel it as I raced to get changed into each outfit and get the photos taken.
I know I've said photos in the same exact spot can be boring, but when you already know the exposure and the correct positioning and distance you need to be from the camera, it does allow for speedy shots without the guesswork.

This was based around my thought that these purple patterned tights would look good with the leopard. They are almost zebra-like. I was very smitten with them at the time of purchase, but according to my outfit photos, have only been worn once.

And like most of my outfits this week, you might (okay, you wont but I'll point it out) notice that they are very similar to previous outfits. When in a rush, I tend to go for what I already know.
So here is November 22nd; black skirt, leopard sweater, purple tights.

  1. Yay leopard print! You take all your pictures all at once? How come? Just curious. I suppose if you work a 9-5 day like most people, it would be hard to photograph your outfits because the sun is down when you get home...

    I almost directly repeated an outfit the other day that I had worn a few months ago. I didn't even think about it for a while, and then I realized that I had worn basically the same exact thing. Ah well. If it's not broke, don't fix it, right?

  2. I love leopard and purple together. And you've totally inspired me to invest in a tripod and remote!

  7. I love that you were so brave in your mixing and matching choices, I would have never thought to pair those tights and leopard together.

  9. I think this outfit looks totally different than the one from November. Thank goodness for colored tights. They are totally gonna save me during 30 for 30.

    I want some animal print in my life.

  15. My camera didn't come with a remote (I asked) so I do the 10 second timer dash too. Only it doesn't snow here, so it's safer! Love the leopard with the purple skirt. Why didn't I think of that combo?

  16. Purple and leopard look awesome on you. :D And I feel like I've been rewearing my same outfits for the past two weeks, so don't feel bad for getting some inspiration from a past outfit haha! I would have never noticed. ;D

  17. very pretty today! always love leopard!

  18. LOVE those tights! I'm really impressed at your ability to dress so nice in such cold temps. Our winters never get reallly cold, but even still when cold temps hit I head for bulky layers and such.

  22. Your photos are always beautiful, so you're doing everything right.
    Cute tights and booties. I can't believe you stood outside sans coat in this weather!

  23. I think it's definitely okay to repeat outfits, especially silhouettes! I remember personal silhouette photo collections popping up on The Sartorialist in the past and thinking that I totally have one of those (full skirt, slim(-ish) blouse). You definitely need to wear those tights more often. They go great with the leopard, and the patterns are subtle enough that neither of them compete!

  24. Love the leopard print top :-)

  25. Nice pattern mixing, Lyddie! Don't worry about repeating outfits - I like to see how you creatively restyle items in your wardrobe. And I'm not too ashamed to admit to pulling clothes out of the dirty pile. Life is too busy sometimes!

  28. When I'm pressed for time I always revert back to what I know and copy past outfits - I think most people do - but you definitely don't look rushed here, if you hadn't said anything I would never have guessed it.

    P.S. I am, predictably, in love with your top.

  29. You look gorgeous - I love the mix of prints and those fabulous earrings!

    I always take my outfit photos in the same place for that reason - just makes it easier and I don't always have time :)

  30. Those tights are so fun! I probably wouldn't wear them too much just for fear of getting a snag.

    I only have a couple good spots for outfit photos that don't require me taking a ton of time to seek them out, figure out lighting, etc. Especially in the winter, trudging through the snow and ice here in heels just doesn't seem like a good idea :)

  31. Ooh! Cute tights... love the color matched with the leopard print!

    ReplyDelete
  32. well it doesnt matter how many times you wear this combo, it always looks good

    ReplyDelete
  33. it is a gorgeous spot for photos, so there's no shame in repeats.

  34. D'you know, I've ALWAYS wanted to own some leopard print but I've never found anything I truly liked. Also I tend to be quite safe with what I wear and leopard print is quite a bold thing to wear. You've styled it really well! And I think it's fantastic you shoot yourself with camera and remote! I thought someone else took it for you because the shot turned out so nicely.

  38. You've inspired me to try purple and red together. They really look gorgeous though I never would've thought to pair them together. Thanks!
