Double Knotted

I've been taking self photos with a tripod for awhile now and I still get somewhat embarrassed. I usually try to pick secluded areas because the occasional passerby do not bother me. My eyes give me away, but no one would be able to see them behind my sunglasses. In an open environment like today's is a different story. There's just that feeling of being watched, which leads to a brain freeze, then of course the camera capturing the awkwardness at that mid-pose, hahaha. I have a feeling this is like public speaking, where the nervousness will never go away. Only time will tell I suppose.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I love how you tied the scarf into double knots. My husband takes my photos and I'm still feel embarrassed posing for the camera. The other day a lady saw us taking photos and decided to stop by and stand behind my husband while he was taking pictures. She just stood there smiling at us. It was awkward. I wanted to run and hide.

    1. Hahaha how did your husband feel?! I made bf pose for me one time and I felt embarrassed when there were others milling around. And this was when I was behind the camera! He said he made eye contact with some of them and they were all wearing goofy grins, lol.

  3. Uniqlo heatech is thick or warm enough to wear it just only under jacket?? I know heatech has improved every year, but I didn't know they are so evolved. I must try!

    1. Haha, temps were in the mid 50s when I wore it earlier last week ;) I also had a thin tank underneath, but I dunno how much the heattech helped. I just wanted a long-sleeve white tee and this fit the bill.

  5. I know what you mean about being spotted :) That's why 90% of the time I take photos on my private balcony. Doesn't make for an interesting backdrop like yours, but it keeps my nerves in check.

  6. Hehe...I never got used to it. I still run and hide if I spot someone within eyesight of my photo taking. Or pretend to be taking tripod shots of really, really interesting tree. =P

    You, however, look great! Simple, but pulled together.

    1. Alright, I gotta remember to steal the "taking pics of a tree" idea lol. Usually I try to "stand over" my tripod so people can't really tell what I'm doing.

  7. I wish I was a little more brave to take pictures in public. I just need to tell myself "who cares" lol
    Great look, love the scarf.

  9. I feel awkward just taking photos on my deck where my neighbors can *possibly* see so kudos to you and other bloggers out there who brave it in public. Maybe that is the innate difference between style bloggers and craft bloggers LOL :D

    Love the simple elegance of today's outfit - you really know how to rock a scarf like no other!

    1. Pshhh you are every bit a style blogger! I do miss your backyard pics, but understand it's hard given the weather. I think my backgrounds are going to be bathroom pics for awhile.

  12. You are a brave, brave girl to take your own pictures in public! I don't think I'll ever be able to do that! You always look fantastic though and your poses seem natural but thought out! (if that makes sense :P)
