Winter break is now here and I have been using these few weeks to blog, produce content and update my social media pages. One thing I was really excited to do was take some photos in a new location with a super cool outfit! 

For this look I gifted items from Express to showcase this super ambitious outfit. When I know that I am going to embark on a busy day I try to make sure that I am wearing an outfit that I like to increase my confidence. It might seem cliché but it actually works. When I am wearing something flattering that fits my curves I worry less about my appearance and more into the tasks that I am doing.

Now getting into the details, the base of this outfit were these High Waisted Denim Perfect Curves Black Ankle Leggings and the Blue Cowl Neck Cable Knit Tunic Sweater both from Express. For accessories I was super excited to try the Long Plaid Car Coat from Express as well. I have been wanting a long coat for a while now because not only do I think it's a forever winter trend but coats like these can keep you very warm. Lastly I added my Mickel Kors over-the shoulder bag and these nice winter boots from Target to finish the look.
This might be my favorite outfit thus far as it really got me back into dressing up and getting out of wearing the same t-shirt and jeans look. 

As for photography, with the added time on my hands I thought I could try getting some unique, fashion shots with different poses. 
Let's just say I tried. 






I aimed to get a variety of different shots including a low camera looking up angle and a few shots from the waist up. As for poses I went for the basic ones I always do but I also opted for ones with me jumping and twirling my jacket around just to switch it up. 

Overall, they did not turn out bad as I really like the pictures but I do want to research more poses and concepts I can do for the future.








Above is a short video that I put together out of the blue for fun. I tired to vlog the photoshoot and add some tips and tricks that I use but it came out as an epic fail. I really did not consider the types of footage you would need to make the vlog cohesive but I tired my best and filled in any empty spots. In the future I plan to make another video to better highlight the behind the scenes action during my photoshoots.
