Gingham Gaggle

Gingham gaggle? Yes a gingham gaggle because each week a group of us bloggers decide to join in the Friday's Fancies series and it makes us a gaggle, a flock and today we are all proudly wearing our gingham feathers.
I never really thought of myself as a gingham fan per say, I like to wear some plaid but they are so similar, I guess I could say I am a gingham fan by default.
To go along with my gingham-inspired look and my attempt to insert more of me into the blog, I have a few outfits that I wore this past week. Granted, these are my work attire outfits, I hope you all don't mind.
gingham love


Now just a few of my outfits this past week.




I wore the above outfit to work with black wedges and changed into the sandals after work because we were walking around at a farmers market and it has been really hot here in California.
Question: does any have any tips for taking photos? I just feel awkward in front of the camera and not sure how to pose.
Hope you all have a great weekend, Leeann of Join the Gossip and I are hanging out at the Getty Villa, so I know I will have a wonderful weekend. See you all on Monday!

Kat@shop.school.sleep. said...

Can I borrow all your work outfits? Haha..I love the color block dress and the last one with the chambray and stripped skirt. I love a nice pencil skirt for work, so comfortable!!

Simply LKJ said...

Super cute! Love your color blocked dress. I am loving gingham now too.

Becky [Apples of Gold] said...

OOOOH! I love that first outfit combo!! Especially the shoes! [Want 'em!!] You have great style! I'd say the best way to take great photos is to first forget you're in front of the camera (this way you'll relax and look more natural... easier said than done, I know) and second, stand in the mirror and practice a few signature poses. I've messed up SO much in photos that I now (kind of) know which poses work for me and which don't... it also helps when you have a photographer telling you what to do...but that's not always the case. =)

Katie {katie lately} said...

Meg you are just the cutest!!

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...
