Flatlay: Olive Skirt + Ivory Sweater

Hi friends! Today’s look was supposed to be another blog outfit post, but guys lemme tell you… sometimes it just doesn’t quite work out (ugh). My husband and I tried twice to get the look right. The first time was Monday night, except the sun was setting too fast and I don’t know where are all traffic came from where we normally takes pictures, but cars were lined up at a nearby traffic light staring. I know bloggers take photos all day long in the middle of roads, crowds, you name it – but our photo place is right outside of our neighborhood and I shouldn’t be embarrassed, but I am. I rarely talk about my blog to people I know in person. I suppose it’s a self conscious thing, and also the fact once I told my dad about the blog and he was so confused. LOL. I never mentioned it again! Anyway, Monday was a fail. Tuesday we tried again. Went to a different spot, but the sun was at an angle not quite behind my husband taking the pictures so again the lighting was pretty bad. Not only that, but somehow my shirt was incredibly wrinkled, I ripped it in the back bending over to fix my shoes (!!) and I’m not quite sure what my stance was, but I looked like I needed to pee! 😂

Anyway, I gave up after all that. I love putting together flatlays, in my pajamas, gym clothes, and no lighting issues or neighbors to stare at me. 🙂 So, here you go!

Today’s outfit is featuring this incredibly soft and stretchy sweater. Definitely one of my favorites this winter. My previous look using this sweater (here) was a casual outfit, so I wanted to put together a work look as well. Lately my husband and I have been cutting back on expenses, I really need to get some debt paid down, so I’m going to make it a point to try and mix old items in my closet (like this skirt) with new items more often. I’ve fallen in love with using ShopLook to make visual outfits for you guys (like with my Saturday/Sunday sales/wish list posts) and I want to try to get into a habit of doing the same with items I find online to help you all create similar looks! Hope that helps! See below for all the details.
