Happy New Year! Nothing says bring on 2016 like a killer outfit (complete with OTK boots) and red lips, right?
This Shop Lombard & Fifth fit and flare dress is going to be one of those perfect year-round pieces for me. It’s a great, colorful base for winter layering and just the right weight for warmer months. While some items should really stay season-specific (certain prints, sandals, crop tops, bikinis…;)), I think the majority of items can transition quite nicely from season-to-season when styled correctly! Tights, boots, and scarves are, of course, always good ‘winterizing’ items. Next time I’m going to pair this dress with a leather jacket and a beanie!
On a completely different note, I wanted to give some encouragement to bloggers who don’t always have someone to take their photos. I mentioned a few posts back that I usually have someone around to help be my photographer, but I was in a pinch and I ended up taking these photos myself- something I thought was virtually impossible. It’s a pretty steep learning curve and the first day I tried, every single photo ended up being blurry (and I spent four hours trying- I was discouraged, to say the least). I ended up coming across this amazing article later that day, and when I used her advice the following day I had success! It feels empowering to not have to constantly depend on someone else for outfit photos, so I recommend reading the article and giving it a go if you’re curious!
