10 Thoughts When Taking Outfit Pictures in Public

Recently I've really been trying to push my outfit photos in terms of location - basically trying to not just take them in my back garden! I've been really happy with the results, but I wouldn't say the process of taking them is my favourite thing. I mean, it's embarrassing isn't it? I thought this would be something a lot of bloggers would relate to so I've put together 10 thoughts I have while taking outfit pictures in public....

1 - OK there's nobody around, let's quickly get this done before anyone comes.

2 -  Is that someone coming? OK, just pretend we're taking pictures of the landscape.

3 - Are they ever going to go away? I'll just man up and take them anyway...

4 - Yup and now they're looking at me like I'm a complete weirdo and I'm going to look uncomfortable and self conscious in all of these photos.

5 - I swear it is NEVER this windy apart from when I'm taking outfit pictures.

6 - If I just look into the distance I will look all cool and thoughtful rather than like a gormless idiot right?

7 - Can I replicate that effortless hand up to the hair shot like all the big bloggers can? OK, no I can't, I just look like I'm trying to soothe a headache.

8 - I am freezing. I wish I had loads of coats so I could do 'coat of the days' instead.

9 - Ugh there's more people coming, let's just leave it at that.

10 - Can I salvage three or four good pictures out of the hundreds we just took? Probably not...

Can you relate to any of these? Or can you think of any others?

  1. Haha I can definitely relate to all of these, taking pictures in public requires a lot of courage. I always try to get pictures taken when no one is looking and you have no idea how much I'd love a coat of the day post as it's always freezing when my friend and me are taking pictures. Once I even stood outside wearing only a skirt and a top and it was about 2 degrees haha. xx


    1. Haha I'm glad you agree! Also you must have been freezing! Xx

  2. Hahaha I am so with you on all of this. I hate taking photo's in public but am so used to it now I'm like "right, suck it up, let's do it". Loved this!


    1. Haha hopefully at one point I'll get used to it too! Xx

  5. haha totally the amount of people that stare/ fascinated make it so hard when you are feeling self conscious anyway and it is ALWAYS so windy on the day you pick haha typical xxx
