When it comes to putting together an outfit post, in the absence of Eureka moments, here’s my default sequence of events:-
> lay in bed the night before, mentally visualing outfits and trying to decide which accessories go with which, and generally working myself up to insomnia state
> after a few fitful hours of sleep, I am up around 5am, and I go reheat the coffee my man brewed for me last night, sip it slowly while trying to remember the set of outfits I’d finally settled on (between 3 to 4 looks, these last for a week until the next weekend shoot)
> put on my Klorane Eye Patches to look as unpuffy as possible
> lay down on the couch and wait for my photographer to wake up, our shoots usually start around 10.45am or thereabouts
> put on an SK-II Mask around 9.30 to prep the face
paint my face put on my make-up
> start shooting
Note that during this entire process, it’s very likely everything I’d planned flies straight out of the window because nothing looked right in real life. That means mountains of garments strewn over the bed and the bedroom floor. Walking into my room is akin to navigating one’s way through a landmine. And what eventually makes it to the blog is stuff I never dreamed of putting together, of wearing on a day-to-day basis. I’m a lazy dresser, I confess. And that brings me to today’s #ootd post. This is something I actually do wear regularlys, and because of that, I feel it’s legit🙂
That Danger, Blogger At Work Shirt is da bomb, is it not? With safety pins holding up those rolled sleeves and the asymmetrical knot. So 80s, so now. I’ve paired it with a dramatic pair of Denim & Jersey Leggings from BCBG. These are epic, I tell you, stretchy with ankle zippers and contrast panels creating an ever so svelte silhouette.
My Botkier On The Road Crossbody. Love the unexpected touches of Orange just peeking through.
Accessories include the Poison Ivy Winter Garden Swarovski Crystal, Isabel Marant Braided Bracelet and Kate Spade Lucite Bangle. I can’t remember where I bought the large Brown Horn Ring but, as you must know, I wear it all the time.
Jefferey Campbell booties also seen here. Camel and Brown Fedora from the wunderland known as Forever21.
I know, I’m actually using nail polish. Wonders will never cease.
What about you? How do you plan your outfit shoots? And since many work from home, do you actually wear that as your #ootd? I’d love to know how the land lies with you.
