HOLIDAY PHOTOS | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

HOLIDAY PHOTOS | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

I don't know about you, but I am not a lover of having my photo taken (even though I do OOTD's regularly).  Tonight, my family is going to be taking our annual Holiday Card photo, which means I have to look stylish and cute. 

For the picture, I chose to wear colors that would stand out, but be subtle enough that I wouldn't be the center piece of the photo.  I paired my new vest with a mauve colored sweater, because the color scheme was light and similar.  Since these colors can sometimes wash my skin out, I decided to add a POP with my lipstick.  For pants, I put on my favorite leggings to darken up the look and my black booties that I always wear.  This outfit is perfect for everyday wear or when you just might be taking a photo. 

Today's OOTD is the outfit I chose to wear for the Kaplan family holiday photo.
