Black, white & lace

Lace peplum c/o Sugarlips | Citizens Second Skin | Matt&Nat Clutch | Franco Sarto pumps | BB Dakota coat [similar]

Today I felt as though something was missing. I couldn’t put my finger on it but I was pretty sure I had left something behind; forgot to bring something important. I spent the entire day scatterbrained, stunned and easily startled – think Bambi thrown into A Troll in Central Park. Finally, after peeking at these shots I realized what it was; my outfit was SO simple. 

I’ve come a long way since I first started the blog. Back in the beginning I was afraid of anything that wasn’t a solid colour, and oh, also solid colours. Pretty much, my wardrobe consisted of very simple pieces in black, grey, white and the occasional purple. Never bright, never complicated. Now, I push myself to style different colours, patterns and textures so often that the simplicity that was once my crutch is now unfamiliar… and now all kinds of exciting! Sometimes, less really is more.

  11. The little lace peplum is gorgeous! I love how you styled it, Sorren ;) It's fun to think how blogging your outfits has impacted your style. I love looking through my archives and seeing how far I've come.

    Sidenote - do you add blur to your backgrounds in Photoshop?


    1. Thank you! I am head over heels for it. I already wore it again for my Christmas lunch at work!

      As for the photoshop, it's all in the lens for me. Since I've got a limited amount of time for blogging I try and do everything [lighting, composition, colour, depth of field] in one - the photos. My husband got a new lens by optek and it was fairly well priced. It's a gem and takes killer photos.

      What kind of camera do you use?? It may work on yours as well...


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I love getting to know you all a little better each time :)
