The Headless Woman

Because I am a hopeless with the camera...I became a headless woman.  Maybe I should really find a photography book or a camera with changeable lenses.  Most of the OOTD photos floating around are full-length but still close-up.  I don't know how to do that with my camera.  I'm not even sure it's capable. Anyway...

Monochrome black with a pop of color.  The easiest way to wear something so loud and bright as this Zara blazer is to let it stand alone against one solid color.  No competing with patterns or other members of the rainbow.  Ya'll don't know how many times I tried this blazer on only to throw it off because I thought it didn't look right with whatever outfit. For months.  It was too bright, too turquoise, too big, too long.  But I refused to return it.  During my family's big college commencement weekend, with the unexpected cold and drab weather, it became the choice article of clothing.  By necessity at first, but all of sudden it worked with my outfits.  Or I'm just a weirdo.

Especially with black, I sometimes get annoyed at the differing shades.  I'm pretty sure the top, pants and shoes each have their own ideas about what black is but that's alright.  Whatever.  Gold accents with all the accessories for the final touch.  Just fine for a warm rainy day in the Alamo City. Or y'know, indoors.

Choo choo!

    It's so hard trying to master the selfie, isn't it? I still can't get my angles right either.

  3. I feel you girl, the ish with the different shades of black. Love the blazer, the colour is perfect. I love that you went with all black and made the blazer the center.
