Day 26/30: Darkness

I tend to choose photo locations based on the scenery. But what I should be paying attention to is the contrast between my clothing colors and the background. Dark top against a dark background? Not exactly the best idea, but I'm still learning as I go :)
necklace: Ann Taylor (eBay; similar)
ring: H&M (similar)
top: Ann Taylor - gift from Elle (similar - short-sleeves)
belt: Express (similar)
shorts: American Eagle (this season's version sold here)
flats: Mossimo (similar)

  10. hahahah, i've done the same thing. i've also done white against an almost white background, too. i'm kinda lazy and use whatever i find first and tend not to think about these things!

  13. I have been away from the petite blogging community for awhile, so I have missed out on seeing the 30/30's. I just scrolled through all yours...ah!!! So great! I love that you are changing up the location quite a bit, too!!

  14. Love the black and white, Cee! So classic! But somehow you managed to make it contemporary with the shorts. Nice.

  16. I love the varied backgrounds. I love that your outfit just contains two colors, but is still interesting. I've tried the black & white combo out sometimes, but think it looks too plain on me. I'll have to try styling it like this next time. :)

  17. Thank you all :) Sometimes keeping it simple is the way to go.

    @Really Petite - If AE hasn't changed its sizing, then I think you're going to find the shorts to be too big :( I'm wearing 00 and it fits my waist perfectly. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

  18. Your legs are so Loooong!!!!!

    Are you taking these pics by yourself or is the BF helping you out?

    Classic and chic and always!

  19. @Elaine A (TOBeautyReviews) - Nope, no help from bf. His schedule doesn't align with mine most of the time :) Somehow the combination of camera angle + short shorts made my legs look super long today. I swear I have normal proportions, but I'll take it ;)

  20. I love this outfit!! So simple and sleek and striking!

  21. Loving that necklace! Also still staring at your long legs - you look like you need to just live in shorts and minis :)

  22. I need to think about adding more polka dot as a pattern into my wardrobe. I'd like to start off w/a blouse vs bottoms. yes, I will add this to the bottom of my list.

  23. Ha! I do that all of the time, except my problems always involve wearing light colors against the white doors in my bathroom. I just turn out to be this floating head in all of my pictures :)

    I absolutely love this outfit...I'm always looking for new ways to 'class' up my shorts, and these pictures are going straight into my inspiration file!
