Do you have an important event such as a family wedding, reunion, or graduation coming up? Keep reading!
We’ve all looked back at pictures of ourselves in family photos and cringed while asking, “What was I thinking?” Here’s how to avoid that scenario. Don’t wait until the day of the event to get dressed and have someone take pictures of you exactly as you plan to look on that special day.
The silhouette of your outfit might not flatter your shape. The colors may wash you out. The accessories you have chosen may look cluttered. You can correct these issues before the outfit is out there for all the world to see if you tweak the look ahead of time.
It will help you to appear confident and relaxed if you get used to having your picture taken. Learn which is your best side. When we feel self-conscious or shy it shows in the photo. Own that lens!
I wore this jacket recently, but I wanted to show you how it looks with a different top — sometimes making your outfit better can mean just changing the top.
I wanted to wear a lighter color top on this evening, but the V-neck black cami looks so much better. That silver/gray tank cost three times the amount of my five-year-old favorite tank from Chico’s, but I have never been happy with the fit. I always buy a size large in tanks because I don’t want them to pull at the bust or cling to the belly. This gray one is an extra-large! It all goes to show, you can pay a lot for something and still not get the best option.
The jacket is on sale here. The tank is a couple of years old (I wouldn’t recommend it anyway). The pants are by Lior Paris via My Fair Lady here. The shoes are old by Sam Edelman (similar). The bag is three years old (similar).
Mr. Mickey and I were on our way out to dinner on Saturday when he snapped the photos above. We each had the halibut. On Friday, I will share a video and a blog post update on what I eat each day for my best health. I posted the composite photo below on social media this week and received numerous requests for an updated post on my food choices.
