Lets start out by saying I don’t have an Instagram husband. He is the sweetest though because he will do it if he has to but it is not his favorite thing to do. So, I am always asking family and friends to take my pictures for the most part or worst case scenario, I use my tripod(insert monkey emoji with its eyes covered here). Yes, you read it right, I have come to use my tripod in public, having people staring at me, and probably thinking I was so into myself. Makes me laugh now but a girl has to do what a girl has to do, right!?
Well the other day scrolling through my feed I clicked on a photographer that was tagged in one of the girls I follow. Of course I love her pictures so I was intrigued by who was taking those beautiful pictures for her. I contacted her photographer, Raquel Knowles and right away did not think about it twice and booked a session with her. I just thought to myself for once I would love to work with a photographer for my own blog and not to advertise something else or anyone else. So this was not the first time working with a professional photographer but it was my first time doing it for my own blog.
So yes, I was a little nervous at first but after meeting Raquel for just a few minutes it all just went away. She made me feel like a true blogger and was amazing in making suggestions to catch that perfect shot. I was more than happy with my pictures. I LOVED them and really have to hold back in wanting to upload each and everyone on Instagram.
To be honest I was not going to shot this outfit to begin with. What I wanted to shot that day did not arrive on time so I had to scramble for a last minute outfit. I went to the trusty Amazon website. As many of you know, being a Prime member you get two day shipping for free so I knew I would get it on time for my photo shoot guaranteed. I saw this skirt and I absolutely fell in love with it. It didn’t have the greatest review as to size but they all raved how amazing the quality of the skirt was. I prayed to the gods above that this skirt would magically fit me.
Lo and behold, it fit like a glove. I can see why people would say it wasn’t fitting, this skirt is made not to wear on your hips like most skirts but just a few inches up on your smallest part of your waist. One thing they were not wrong on was the quality of the skirt. The material is really nice and heavy but the only thing I am not a big fan of was the underlining being white. Not that it showed but still kinda bugged me a bit. Overall this is a great skirt to dress up or down.
I decided to pair this skirt with a simple black turtle neck shirt, black sock booties, and a hat to finish the look. I think it would make such a cute Thanksgiving outfit or any special occasion for the holidays. For this exact skirt click here or I’ve listed some similar options down below.
