crowning of the cool kid queen (17/30)

cardi: gap. blouse: mine. skirt: urban outfitters. shoes: payless. bag: target. neckklace: vintage.

today before work, i met up for coffee with my new photog friend jenny. she's just getting started in the photog world and wanted to talk shop, and i was happy to oblige. because i've been so busy with other things lately (you know, WORK), i haven't been all that involved in my photography, and taking to her made me really miss it. (it also made me miss the photo swaps i've done in the past with trude and nancy - i need to get my butt down over to LA soon!)

anyways, i asked her if she could take my outfit photos for the blog today. i am forever thankful to her for not thinking of me as some sort of crazy person because a) i asked her to take pictures of my outfit and b) i told her i run a fashion blog (sort of). just for that she should be my new BFF. and i think i need to make her follow me around every day to take my outfit pics for me. (jenny, if you're reading this, sorry if i'm starting to come off as a creeper)

some of these were shot on my camera, and she was kind enough to send me the shots she took on hers.






i couldn't stop laughing while she was taking pics of me, and i couldn't help but thinking: i don't know which is more awkward, posing for shots that i'm taking myself with a self-timer, or modeling for someone else. hmmmmm....

I like that dramatic third photo. Yeah, she's definitely BFF material. Accepting that you're a style blogger without judgement aaand taking your outfit photos to boot, that's real cool...

I love your polka dotted bag! And I know what you mean, it's always nice to have someone else take pictures, but I always feel way more awkward.

Loooove this outfit on you, that top is just too cute! And yes, you seriously need to get down here. Or I need a real vacation...but moving + higher rent will mean I'll be on a tighter budget than ever now! :) Hooray for new photog buddies! I've met so many amazing ones through my local Fast Track group.
