Chattering teeth, runny nose, rosy cheeks, numb fingers, and wind blown hair, is the norm for me while trying to take photos outside during the winter months. Sure, most of my photos (well at least I hope) look somewhat decent, but taking photos in the frigid temperatures is anything but glamorous. In between takes you will find me bundled up in a heavy coat and googling the nearest cafe where I can just warm up for a bit before bearing the cold again. I could just be smart and wear my winter coat while taking photos but how lame would that be if all my blog posts in the winter just featured the same coat covering up my outfit? Luckily, in today’s post I was able to explore Brooklyn and the beautiful scenery as well as wear some of my most recent purchases from the Zara sale to keep my (very cold) spirits high.
Just like every Zara sale in the past, I went a little more crazy this time around. I can’t help it especially when I live right across the street from one. Anyway, as you know, my favorite print aside from floral is leopard print, so of course I had to add this sparkly leopard maxi skirt to my collection. I love how this skirt has the ability to be less dressy by adding the right accessories, like this graphic oversized sweatshirt also from Zara. What’s best about this top is that if you look closer it has a meaningful message (“dream fearlessly”) and a pop of animal print, which is always a plus.
But back to the skirt, I can’t tell you how much I have been wearing this skirt either with that sweatshirt or with of course a leather jacket for a more edgy look or a jean jacket for an even more casual look.
For the bottom half of my outfit, I added a pair of sheer tights under my skirt and these heeled black booties from Forever 21.
No shocker here, but I’m still obsessing over the statement earring trend, so I’m wearing these gold dangling earrings that feature these beautiful star and moon charms from the brand Design Lab sold at Lord and Taylor’s.
Well, there you have it folks, another style post where, if you zoom into some of the photos, you will find me attempting to conceal my anger towards the winter season. If any fellow bloggers are reading this, let me know in the comments below what are your tips and tricks for shooting in the colder months. Until then, here’s to other arctic blast hitting us soon and more attempted photoshoots in the winter weather.
