Let me tell you a secret: the lace top is actually a dress that I tucked into the skirt to wear it as a top. I bought the dress a year ago, thinking it would be easy to style. Since then, I have tried to work with it on numerous occasions, but it didn’t look quite right on me. I neglected it and left it hanging in my closet for many months, until I decided to try wearing it as a top. Initially, I was worried it would be too long, as the skirt is on the shorter side, but it turned out to work out fine with a few adjustments.
I decided to pair the lace with the faux suede skirt simply because I have always liked the juxtaposition of the delicacy of the lace with the heaviness of the suede. To add a pop of color, I threw on a coral pink blazer, which I am glad I did because it kept me comfortably warm all day.
There are only two photos this week because this shoot was the most difficult and frustrating one thus far. I had to scout for new locations since I am now back at school, and it took a long time to set up and get started. It was also quite a busy location, so I was a lot more self conscious than before. I definitely rushed through the shoot because of all the people, and didn’t catch enough satisfying shots. I will certainly be looking around for more remote areas around campus, and hopefully I can be more relaxed in future shoots!
As always, have a fabulous Monday!
