Usually when I am putting an outfit together, I tweak it until it’s just right, but don’t usually end up photographing the in-between stages. Except the other day, I did for some reason and realized it could turn out to be a fun post to show how my look evolves before the final product emerges.
In this case, the two photos above show the original version of this outfit. I chose a very simple look, with wide-legged, light colored denim and minimal accessories. However, after looking at the images on camera, something was off, and I decided it needed a little “umph.”
So, I chose to don my frames, and add an eclectic colorful clutch.
Still not quite satisfied, because I still felt like something was off, I decided to change my denim choice. So instead, I opted for a pair of skinnies in a dark wash, and added my snakeskin printed scarf for some more flair and a little pattern play.
Et, voila! Sometimes it just takes a bit of tweaking, playing and trying different options before you get the look just right, but it’s worth it in the end.
