Welcome to today’s Trend Spin monochromatic look in all red! Yes, I wore just about every red thing I have in my closet to create this bright and cheery look. Unfortunately the weather was not cooperating when I took these pictures which is why it looks like I’m standing in a dungeon. Hey, at least I found a red friend to stand next to!

Speaking of picture taking, I’ve been asked (in person) a few times about when I take my pictures. Well, if I have time on the weekends I plan out all my outfits for the week and have my husband and his DSLR take all the pictures in one afternoon. That’s what I did this week. And of course it was raining ALL FREAKING DAY on Sunday when I had scheduled photo time. Which necessitated getting creative with photo shoot locations.

If I don’t have time during the weekend (or I’m feeling super lazy) then I take my photos with my point-and-shoot camera, the timer, and a tripod on my way to work or on my lunch break. That probably would have been the better bet this week since it hasn’t rained since Sunday. Win some, lose some, I guess.

    I like that you found a red “friend” for your photo shoot 🙂 I used to do the self-timed pictures out in my alley, and even then I was nervous about someone walking by and wondering why I was taking pictures of myself. Do you ever feel self-conscious when you do that?

      I used to feel weird but I got over it pretty fast. I feel like it’s less weird when I do it in a more populated area. The more people, the less they notice me. But when it’s just me, the tripod, and a few other people on my building’s roof top that’s when I feel out of place!

    I really like the idea behind this outfit– a little bit of subtle pattern mixing within a mostly monochromatic theme. I feel like the possibilities are endless for all the other colors of the rainbow! Great look!

    When I saw the headline for this post, I thought it was going to be about the red-themed outfit you wore for Mad Dash. =D In any event, I love this outfit! So unique with so much visual interest!
