OOTD :: of crazy legs and indoor lighting

So remember when I kept whingeing about the weather and longing for rain and cold?

Well, you know how they say to be careful what you wish for? Yeah. Rain and cold = yay. But rain and cold also = no outdoor photo shoots.

Lucky me, I’ve got a spare bedroom to turn into a makeshift photo studio. Unlucky me, I suck at indoor lighting. Even after reading several digital photo blogs and purchasing a floor lamp at Target, I still had to do some serious Photoshopping on all my pics this week, which defeats the purpose of not doing collages and trying to make things easier for me.

Life. Right?

I just hope you all forgive the painful quality of the pics this week and focus on the outfits as best you can.

Anyhow, the good news is that I’m back on track with Anne’s 52 Pick-me-up challenges. This week is Crazy Legs and that has me delving under my bed for my stored leggings from last year. And before you lecture me on the whole “leggings aren’t pants” thing, keep in mind I am fun-sized and most shirts cover my derriere quite nicely, thank you very much.

Today’s ensemble had the potential to be a rehash of the sweggings’ first iteration because they’re such a distinctive piece and I was at a loss as to the footwear to pair with them. But my trusty Payless pumps (I swear they’re burgundy to match the sweggings!) helped elevate the look, as did the long necklace. So even though I chose to sweater it up top again, I think I managed to create a distinctively different look from last time.

Accessories really do make an outfit.
