those awkward moments when..

 Pants: Target (recent) (similar at Target) (similar here and here)

Shirt: H&M (similar here, here and here

Flats: Tory Burch (buy

Belt: J.Crew (similar for $7) (another option at Asos)

Bag: Steve Madden (same style in cobalt

Neckalce: c/o poshlocket

Watch: MK (similar style)

Bracelets: Stella & Dot, J.Crew Factory

Trying to take outfit pictures when you know, or maybe just think, you’re being watched is a bit…awkward. This gal gets slightly uncomfortable!  Uncomfortable = some seriously odd facial expression (as usual). Ones I didn’t know I even had. That’s when the word ‘crop’ becomes my very good friend. And off we go with the head. Let’s just say it’s for everyones best interest…

Tuesday outfit, unfortunately no pictures (which I’m 

bummed about as I really liked this outfit)

Wedges via DSW

    Love those mint pants and how you've paired them with the darker green bag! And I totally understand that discomfort … we have neighbors that are ALWAYS OUTSIDE and it makes me so self-conscious … I have to walk by where they're normally sitting to get to the spot in the backyard where I take pics. I actually thought about crawling out the window the other day so they wouldn't see me! Looking good lady, and it's getting so green there!

      Haha, it would have been funny if you did crawl out of the window and the neighbors saw you. I guess there will always be nosy neighbors 🙂

      I think if I was in a town where I might not run into someone I know I might be ok with taking pictures in public, just might 🙂

    I love this look:) I so feel the same way…even tho my neighbors know that I have a blog, it still feels AWKWARD taking pictures in front of my house. The backyard or inside prove just as nice for those times:) (I hate those days when I'm wearing a cute outfit and just didn't get a good pic!)xo Closet Fashion Fix

    I am dying for the mint jeans! I was really bummed with the last set of colored skinnies from Target – they were like leggings! These look more like jeans so I'll have to check them out 🙂

      Lilly said:

      It's hard to find a pair that doesn't feel like leggings. These ones do feel a bit more like jeans.

    I live those mint skinnies, actually I love this whole look. I agree with beautygirl, I can't bring myself to go it either. Nosy neighbors are the worst, I have them too and I can totally relate.

    I had a bit of the same challenge today, taking my outfit posts. Just gotta ignore them and tell yourself who cares, strangers are strangers and they don't know who you are at the end of the day. besides the outfit is amazing!

    Love the mint skinnies! Too funny about feeling watched…I'm not even good at having outfit pics taken by somebody else – I freeze up and look stiff! I'm best off taking dressing room mirror pics LOL!

      Same here…I was ready to take them off by end of the day. First pair of wedges that aren't super comfy. But sounds like there is hope for them 🙂

      Lilly said:

      I bought them at Marshalls. I do like the fabric of these mint ones, which I can't really say about the coral ones.
