Camel + Leopard

These photos were so overexposed it is remarkable lightroom was able to salvage them... but I still feel like they look just a bit off.

However, it was way too cold for me to even consider re-shooting! I'd like to say it's officially freezing out there, but actually it's only 40°. Whatever, it feels like 10 below to me!

This is only the second time I've taken photos at the library, but I do love the steps and marble and columns. They make for a nice clean backdrop.

These photos are just lovely. I love the library backdrop and the leopard and great knit are just so pretty. Think warm thoughts! (It snowed here today too-yuck)

I think the photos look great, I would never have thought anything of it.
I'm loving the camel with the leopard xo

Madeline Quaint said...

I'd never have realised something was wrong with the photos, they just look like it's really sunny over there. :)

Great outfit, I love how you coordinate the little details, as always. I should learn from you! :)

eek said...

I am cursing you because ever since you first wore this camel sweater I have been obsessing about finding one. I really need to work on my thrifting skills!

WMBG said...

awesome look! :)

You're a good model, because you don't look cold at all! You look very cute!

Lorena said...

What a great location.
And that is a marvelous skirt.
Lately I find myself reaching for animal print more and more.
I have been thinking about getting a camera (a real one) and taking better pictures... but I don't know if I'll have the guts to do these outside. I guess you are use to it by now.

Ash Louise said...

Perfect combo darlin!

Ashley said...

GREAT SWEATER. I love camel. Yeah!

Your photos look fine to me! I have a habit of overexposing my photos all the time but I still think they look alright. I'm not too fussy!

Vanessa said...

This is a great background! Would never have guessed you had to fuss with post-editing work.
The sky is lovely and blue, so at least it was sunny even if it felt like it was freezing!

Alex Elizabeth said...

I like this background, too! It was 30 the other day and I was so cold that I wore a sweater. I wish I could recreate this look but I don't have a camel sweater or a leopard skirt. Poo.

Amber said...

the library made for an excellent backdrop. I feel like the cold just came out of nowhere. 40 feels a lot colder than I remember....

Stefanie said...

The photos look great! I really like this combination, especially the colour of your jumper!

Cara said...

I love this combination together, and your outfit is perfectly classic! Great jewelry, it adds a ton of interest.

TaraMixandMatch said...

I love your skirt...reminds me again that I need a leopard skirt!

Ali said...

Such a pretty backdrop! I am a fan of rather plain backdrops haha. :) I love how that necklace is like the focal point-- it's so neat! Also, those shoes are adorable. You have so many cute things, my lyddie~

The Closet Shopper said...

That camel sweater is such a great classic piece. You find great things thrifting. If we ever meet, we will have to go thrift shopping so you can teach me your tricks.

I'm wearing a leopard shirt finally today. I mentioned you in the post.

xo,
Tracy

and so it goes.... said...

stunning look!

I love the sweater!

Shea said...

What a classic, stunning combo! The library is such a perfect setting for this outfit too, you're so regal in front of those columns :)

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

I don't know what you're talking about with these pics being over-exposed, they look fantastic to me!

(BTW, do you mind me asking what kind of camera you use? Thx!)

Kassi said...

What a chic combo. I think camel is always so polished and it looks lovely with the leopard. Great outfit!

These photos look pretty awesome for being over-exposed at one point! Also, I adore your leopard skirt!
