Door 21


Kudos to you bloggers who take indoor photos. The amount of fiddling with the settings is out of control! By the time I had a moment to take photos this weekend the sun had gone down. Thus I tried the indoor photo.
For those of you who don't know I have to wear a uniform to work. A gross blue shirt and steel toed boots. I have to wear pants so it's jeans...every...single...day. Needless to say this is why I usually make the most of my days off with dresses or skirts. This outfit is what I am wearing to work today. When I arrive I will have to change my boots and shirt so essentially I dress up for my drive to and from! Oh well. This is part of the reason why I don't really want to do the 30 for 30 challenge. I love the idea and would love to do it one day but at this point I really look forward to my days off so I can play dress up...

    i am HORRIBLE at taking indoor pictures..
    the husband works so much i usually can only get 1 or 2 sets of outfit pictures a week.
    but i would rather wait for his off day than try to take them indoors by myself. bleh. :)
    but with that said, these are really wonderful. <3
    have a wonderful week my love!!!

  2. I haaate taking indoor pictures at my house, they're no good backdrops and the lighting is horrible, because the house was built like 65 years ago!

  3. I've never taken indoor pictures and don't really plan on it ;) I'd rather skip a shoot than try to do it- I'm just not talented enough with my camera to figure out all the settings! Nonetheless, yours are very very pretty and I adore your braid and I'm DROOLING over your boots!

  4. Eek wearing a uniform would suck. I admire the fact that you still dress up even though you have to change though! I adore your shoes, & the way you've braided your hair. Your indoor shots are actually quite good. I suck at taking indoor photos. It's SO HARD.

  6. I don't know all the work that went behind it, but the indoor photos look great!
    I love the hair and the boots. And, I like seeing a different side of you. We don't get to see jeans wearing Shy. It opens up a little bit more about you.

  12. I agree! I hate having to take indoor photos- I'm still learning about settings and it always looks like a 5 yr old took some crappy shots when they're inside. blah! But your's, of course (you photo wizard!), look awesome and all cool/retro.
    I love your hair too- so pretty! And those boots are killing me! xx

  13. This is a very cute to and from work outfit. I worked in a warehouse for a bit and had the same sort of uniform. Weekends were heaven. :)
