Welcome to another post edition, but I must say coming up with a title for this post was a struggle. The many times I edited the title is uncountable. Like, “Nah, this doesn’t sound catchy enough”, “Nope it’s too short!”, “It won’t do well in the search engines”, “Just too boring!”e.t.c. Please don’t tell me I’m the only one in this boat. Ha!!

Unto today’s #ootd, -Two of favourite things to style for winter and Spring are a good pants (jeans or jeggings) and sweater. These two make a great classic look that one can wear to anywhere. There is no right or wrong way to this style. Paired with a statement coat during the winter season and you’ll be looking like a boss. Ha! This look can be paired with any shoes of your choice too. I don’t have a coat on here because the weather was actually okay on this day.

Now lets talk about a dilemma that I’m facing down low.

One of my goals last year was learn to take photos in public places, but it didn’t come to pass. Guys, I’m still uncomfortable and shy when taking photos in public. I’m getting bored of finding quiet places. I love these shots (my son did a great job), but I feel like it would have looked even better in a nice cafe or bar setting. I’ve a big respect for bloggers who take shots in cafes, restaurants and public places. Zero confidence over here. Any tips? Do I need to get high or something for these kind of shots? Lol!! Ya girl needs HELP please!

    I struggle with finding the right title too. It’s hard to be in public and take some blog photos. I feel ya girl! Maybe you and I should have a glass a wine beforehand. Love this look!

      Lol!! Maybe that will help. Thank you! 🙂

    I’m the same with titles! So hard to come up with a good one. And it took time for me to get comfortable, but I also know I would stop worrying about how my photos would look if I just go for it. I also try to time it when there are less people!

    Honestly, I struggle quite a lot with taking photos in public places and most of the places I take photos in are quite public. I get through it by trying not to think about it, but mostly just doing it despite my discomfort and shyness.

    That’s pretty much my go to outfit lately too!! I totally get you about the picture taking thing! I’m still trying to get comfortable with it too, but it’s so hard! I just try and think, I’m never going to see these people again so why does it matter what they think of me?


    • Missy May
      February 13, 2019 / 8:33 pm

      Wonderful! Ha! You’ve a point there, but I just can’t stand the stares and speculation. Hopefully I’ll get there soon.
      Thanks much for sharing.

    Anyway I love your pics, and your outfit as well! You look so cool and stylish!

    I spied a nice place ( a cafe) to take photos at recently….but I plan to go there when there is no crowd, maybe early in the morning? That’s my tip anyway. Try to take photos when there aren’t that many people around, that might make you feel more comfortable. I don’t feel super confident taking photos in public either. It is easier now that we just use a phone, when we had a professional camera (that broke down a year or two ago) people would always stare. So, shooting with a mobile phone can also reduce the attention we’re getting- in my experience.

    You look fantastic btw. This is a lovely outfit.

      Oh that’s awesome, Ivana. Thanks much for the tips. I will give it a try.

    I love the color for your sweater! Taking photos in a public place is hard, but it does get easier the more you do it. People will stare, but I usually pretend like I don’t see them haha. But your photos look great in the locations you’re using!

    Your distressed mustard knit is so cool! I find it difficult taking photos in public too – I’ll avoid my neighbours when I’m snapping away with my tripod! I think it’s a little easier in public if someone else is taking photos, but it’s still not my favourite thing! I have no good tips sorry!

    Hope that you are having a good week 🙂 We finally got a break in the heatwave last night and it was so welcome!

    Another fabulous look, my beautiful Mavis! 🙂 Love the sweater! Very chic! And the hat is a nice accessory! It is very hard for me to fathom you being shy! Your awesome personality always jumps out of the page at me! I felt that way in the beginning and now if people stare, I just tell them, “it’s for my shoe blog!” They understand and some of them even want to get in the picture. Haha! Perhaps, to build your confidence, start going to public places earlier in the morning when less people are out. This way, if one or two appear, you can just smile and go about your day. 🙂 Hope this helps! XoXo!
