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.
So here are some scarf and earring suggestions for you, so that you might look more put together even if you don’t actually feel it!
I found all these on Esty. Love that site, warning though, it is addicting.
These gorgeous earrings are from Stella and Dot. If you don’t know of a stylist representative you can contact Scarlett.
These earrings are all from Le Chateau.
Have fun shopping & enjoy your weekend!
Such an easy tip! Wish I could do one of your photo sessions 😉 !
