Winging It

Red Khaki Batwing Sleeve Plaid Cardigan c/o SheIn, Jeans: Old Navy, Wedges: Target

I feel like I've been winging it lately. Do you ever feel like that? Life has been throwing me some curves, some uncharted territory, so there's nothing to do but just wing it. Put a smile on your face and keep going.


But forget about the heavy stuff--let's talk about these pics. I swear I am cursed whenever I go to take outfit pics or film a video. It always rains! And now it gets dark so early, so taking pictures has to be done early in the morning. So instead of not taking pics, I headed to the walkway, set up everything, grabbed the remote, and started snapping away. Winging it.


And I think I made it work, for winging it when playing style blogger. This is the first batwing cardigan I've owned, so it's been a fun piece to pull out when it's cool outside. Or to hide coffee spills...so I've heard.

Fess up--what have you been winging lately?


Extra Elle;
  • I bought a heavy-duty shower liner. This thing is so thick and I'm convinced, bullet-proof. I'm giving it a full week's try before taking it down.
  • My Story Behind the Pic link up is NOVEMBER 17, so mark your calendars! Just share a pic or more and give us the story behind them. That's it.

  1. This is such a versatile cardigan, I love the pattern and you look so pretty!! It's funny often when I'm ready to take pics the weather is bad or something else comes up so now I do my best to take as many as I can on days that are free.

  10. Lookin' good! Pretty outfit. Cute poses. And, of course, your natural beauty. All of which combine to make this a lovely post. A celebrity like you needs a bulletproof shower-curtain for protection. :-)

  39. Hey you did a pretty good job with this, that it is not easy to do. I never took a picture of myself with a remote and yes now that it is darker earlier it is much harder to get pix now.

  40. First of all, thank you for telling us ahead about the linkup date. I have missed it before but I won't miss it now. I marked it in my calendar.

    You picked out a great cardigan from SheIn. I need more cardigans in that style. I like yours. And hey I winged it for my photos I took today IRL. The camera wasn't cooperating and there were people and neighbors out so I ended up taking them inside, instead. Oh well.

  41. You look so pretty! The light was perfect! From your title, I was also expecting winged eyeliner. ;-)
