Taking outfit pictures is never going to come naturally to me. I love having them to look back on and see what I was wearing at a particular time in my life — where I was headed, what clothes I was living in, what length my hair was. It’s a fun little personal diary. But it will forever be awkward to walk outside and have someone photograph what I’m wearing that day. It helps a lot to shoot with someone I love and trust, so of course I can’t say enough good things about Miss Amy Stone. These pictures make me happy because I know exactly where we were and how we felt taking them: waiting for a dinner reservation in Montauk, oohing and ahhing over the most insanely gorgeous sunset, starving after a day of exploring but genuinely happy in that moment.
Another thing that makes outfit pictures easier? Wearing clothes I’m totally comfortable in. This outfit is a great example of something that feels very “me” and probably how I’d dress every day if I had a reason to put on heels every morning. A few easy ingredients, some super affordable and others more thoughtful purchases: an Equipment shirt that I finally pulled the trigger on (on sale!), statement earrings in my favorite color, Old Navy jeans, and $30 heels because New York City puts my shoes through hell.
