I’ve totally been slacking on taking outfit pictures, so today I was DETERMINED to take pictures by any means…and of course, it rained! I know, I know…I really need to get my life together and learn the proper settings for taking pictures indoors. And, speaking of camera settings, I bought a remote trigger for my camera hoping to use the aperture mode to get those nice shots with the blurred out backgrounds….yeah, not so much! I guess it’s gonna take some practice because I can’t get the darn thing to focus ON ME…and most of my shots are just blurry. Clearly, I just don’t know what I’m doing. LOL! If anyone has tips, I’m all ears…
So, silver lining on those dreary gray rain clouds was the realization that it was cool enough outside to wear a nice little jacket! I know I’ve complained in the past about the inability to wear any type of cute jacket or blazer once it heats up in Atlanta. I love the soft yellow color of and cropped silhouette of this little tweed number, and I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to wear it!

A funny story about these pants…they don’t have back pockets, and we all know how UNFLATTERING pants with no back pockets can be…a** for days, right?! So Fab walks in as I’m getting dressed,and says “Damn babe! Your bootie is lookin’ kinda big in those pants.” (Disclaimer: In real life, I have no bootie!) So, I reply “It’s just the pants, babe…no back pockets.” And he says “You need to buy all pants with no back pockets.”
I then proceeded to tell him that I almost NEVER buy pants with no back pockets because they are so unflattering.l.I bought these online and debated about returning them forever, but ultimately decided I could make them work with longer shirts and jackets (hence the tunic I am wearing here). Of course, Fab disagrees, wholeheartedly. I am just always baffled by how differently men see things. It cracks me up!
Anyway, this is Neutral Know-How outfit #15…we’re almost there! We’ve got five more outfits to go. Honestly, I’ve got two out of five planned out…the other three are kinda up in the air. I am missing a few pieces from my wardrobe — lime green for one of the khaki pairings, and canteloupe for one of the olive pairings. In the olive category, I am also struggling to come up with a look for the celery pairing. I have a celery green sweater, but I don’t think I’ll be able to pull it off unless the weather drops another 10 degrees. I may be improvising with a few stand-in colors… we’ll see!
