Fancy Friday | How to look “put together”

So I want to tell you a quick story. I was in the bank the other day, and I go in there quite often so I know a lot of the tellers in there. Anyway the teller that day said to me ” I don’t know how you look so put together this early in the morning. I don’t look that put together, even at 3 in the afternoon, and I don’t have kids”.  My reply was “Who me? Really?”. Honestly, I hardly ever feel put together, especially herding  three year old Riley around, and carrying my daughter Myla, who seems to be getting heavier by the day. I usually feel frazzled, hot and bothered. I have friends that I always think look SO put together and wish I could be like them. I guess this proves the point that us women often do not see ourselves the way other people do. Which is why I love photographing women, so that I can be the one that shows them how truly beautiful they are, even if they don’t always feel like they are.

Anyway it got me thinking, what did I do different today to make her pay me a compliment like that. I realized it was two very simple things that I did.

I added a scarf & some long earrings to my otherwise pretty blah outfit. How easy is that?! Especially for a mom on the go. Here is my before and after.Photography by Michelle Horsman Photography
