Did you ever wonder how I get ready for an outfit shoot? Well sometimes, my outfit is motivated by an event I am going to, like my niece’s wedding , other times, I just have something new as a blogger that I want to feature–like this swimsuit (still can’t believe I did that!) Other times, I take up one of Kristina’s Bloggers Do it Better challenges like today.
In preparation for today, I
frantically patiently waited for my top to arrive from Carissa Rose, praying just certain that it would arrive on time and fit. So at 3:30 today, the UPS rapped on the door and there it was. I ripped apart my closet trying to put together just the right outfit, fixed my hair, choose my shoes, my accessories and put on my makeup. No supermodel’s life here, however. I laid my outfit aside, made dinner, cleaned up, beg asked my photographer sweetly to take the pictures, put on the outfit and then tried to figure out how to pose (man do I need a stylist, hair and makeup person, and a modeling class!)

After frantically touching up my make-up, we headed outside and took at least 50 shots to get the 7 you see in this collection. Who knew that putting on clothes and getting a few decent shots was such hard work? Maybe if I wasn’t 45+ and didn’t have delete all the ones that made my butt/gut/thighs etc look big it wouldn’t be so hard. Do you younger ladies even worry about that? Oh well, here’s the last few shots….
Took off the high shoes and put on the trusty Oxfords (seen here) and got caught playing with my Nook Color!

So let me know which pose of the Neons+Neutrals was your favorite, and I’d love some constructive criticism too!
