my outfit: I solemnly swear...

My new goal: better outfit pictures.  Starting NOW.  2011 is going to rock and quite frankly... I need to start acting like it, right?  No more boring pictures in my boring hallway.  I promise.


So... formal dining room (well, as "formal" as I get...) meet my readers... readers meet my formal dining room.  Next up I'll do some outside pictures and then further brainstorm on creative photo shoot locations. K? K.


I'll admit... I'm a little "hung over" after releasing the e-book.  It was a huge creative push and now I'm deflated like a balloon.  So I'll try for two posts today... but I'm not making any promises.  You understand, don't you lovelies?

While I'm on the subject... THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! My readers rock and the launch of the e-book was a huge success.  If you haven't snagged one yet - do so! You won't be disappointed!


On to the outfit... shall we? I just LOVE this swing-y cardigan with extra deep pockets.  It's very feminine and flattering without being TOO much like a long cardigan could be if it wasn't careful.


And this extra long necklace I just tied lanyard style for something a little fun... and it's well, fun. Huh?

Nice! I like your formal dining room a lot! Great idea for the new shoot locations! I also like your wavy hair. Although I honestly can't tell if you dyed it back from the "blonde" yet? Did you?

Great outfit AND dining room! :)

I must admit, I love your hallway pictures! I also love these in your dinning room. I often envy bloggers who manage to take all of their pictures in pretty outdoor locations, but for those of us who live in the cold, and have jobs or are moms it is so much easier to find locations in house! Not to mention the sun is not always on our side. I love your indoor shots!

I love your new location for your shots. It was be great to see shots in all parts of your house-so many great design ideas. Looks like lots of great sun coming in, soak it up!

I love the new outfit shoot location, and your blouse! It makes me want to run out and get a new blouse before the 30 for 30 challenge!

The new backdrop is very chic. You could replace the Eiffel Tower with an assortment of goodies to suit the season or occasion.

I love the idea of revolving locations. Today's looks like the outfit coordinates with the spot you chose.

I was just thinking the same thing about switching up the wardrobe pics location-like how I just did mine in the entry! Ha! We always seem to be on the same wavelength. Your hair looks super cute!

i love this whole thing! the beautiful top especially. and, the necklace looks like vintage costume jewelry that you were able to make look so perfect!

i never minded your hallway or in front of the curtains, but this does have a little bit more flair to it. who are we kidding? you look great anywhere!!

p.s. cannot wait to buy your e-book tomorrow!! i've been waiting all week!
