What do you wear to a movie showing/reception when you are the event photographer? You need to be comfortable, able to be on your feet for a few hours, and able to move. You need to blend in with guests and still look professional. This is what I wore to an event we photographed recently. Oh yeah, I'm finally letting the cat out of the bag- my husband and I started a photography business this year. We are still learning. Don't judge our work by my blog photos. I take these myself with a tripod and remote and I'm still mastering that. I do much better work when I'm behind the camera. If you're interested, our website is here.

Red, white, and blue for work or play

With the Fourth of July coming this weekend, I thought it be fun to round up ways to dress in red, white and blue. It's a classic combination I go to year round, not just for patriotic holidays. All of these are from my archives:

Brights and white



 
Top- old option  option
shorts- JCPenney
necklace- JCPenney  option  option
ring- Maurices
wedges- Old Navy  option  option
 
 
This outfit was based on the Get Your Pretty On Summer Style Challenge prompt for Day 5 of last week. The challenge called for lace top + bright shorts+ wedges+ bright beaded necklace. I don't have a white lace top but I have way too many assorted white tops. I went with this eyelet/embroidered tee and the green shorts again. I wasn't sure about the necklace with the V-neck top but I love the little extra color it adds on top.

Can't please them all



 
Dress- old- Belk  option  option   option
scarf- Cato  option   option
shoes- Nine West via Amazon   option   option

The title of this post was the result of a comment I just received. Someone said they had not been enjoying the pants and sensible shoes looks I've been posting and hope to see more skirts. It doesn't really bother me, it just goes to show- you can't please them all. It also shows that this person may only be looking at pics and not reading. If you truly follow and read, you know I've had tendonitis in my foot and high heels cause it to flare up so I've been wearing flats for a couple of weeks to heal my foot. I'm not a fan of flats either but I share what I REALLY wear, not a fairy tale made up outfit just for a blog post. You've probably also heard me say before that some days at work aren't real practical for skirts and I've had a lot of those days lately. I have to save skirts for Sundays during these times.
 
Speaking of Sundays, I wore this to church a couple of weeks ago. I've had this dress for four years. Sometimes plain solids get boring to me. I was inspired by Extra Petite to add a scarf. I've also had the idea for pops of pink since last year. Finally got to put the two together. I'm also wanting to wear this with my floral pumps, but you know that tendonitis thing is in the way right now.
 
Here's how I've worn this in the past:
 
 
If you are new to my blog, welcome! I share mostly work related attire with some casual and semi- casual thrown in here and there. Thanks for stopping by and following.
