Only Ten Frames for Ten Things!

Ten Things I Wore Today...COUNT!
So...
I was all set to do my shoot today on my lunch break.
I had scanned the side of the road to find the PERFECT backdrop that conveyed what I wanted my outfit to evoke.
...Got my camera and tripod ready to go.
I did my first Test-Shot.

And Lo and Behold I see the red battery icon grace the screen.
Mine Blinks indicating a low battery and that its time for the owner to charge it.
I forged ahead making the best out of my 10-shot self-timer preset.
Just as I was reviewing and mentally critiquing my first set of poses, the camera shut off.

I was disappointed, but at least I got SOMETHING of today's outfit.
I wanted to go with a layered look featuring this mustard v-neck. And since the air was quite crisp today, I thought I'd better make the BEST out of the cooler temps.
As I was piecing this look together mentally, I knew gray, [hence the boots], and dark denim would be a nice contrast to the bright-golden hue of the mustard

What was not expected was for me to add my tan sweater vest!
I did so at the last minute and it was a good choice if I do say so myself.
I would have loved a festive scarf to give this look even more color!
What color scarf should I have worn?
Silver Hoop Earrings <3: New York and Company
Silver-Rimmed Shades: Lane Bryant
Mustard V Neck Top: St. John's Bay via JC Penny

  2. If I get done with my morning routine early, I too shoot before work. Sometimes I shoot on my lunch break. I am always scouting out places and getting ideas from other bloggers. As far as People watching, I've gotten used to it. I would try to pick inconspicuous places at first, but now I just focus on making my pictures turn out the way I want them to. People will see you are taking pictures of yourself and get over it! LOL...
