These monthly outfit collages seem to be popular and they are a good reference for me as well, looking back to see what worked and what didn't.  And it is just so much easier and less time-consuming to snap a couple of photos on my balcony so I'm back there!  Le sigh. I can't use my nice 50mm lens which gives the blurry background because the balcony is not long enough (the lens is a fixed focal length, meaning no zoom in or out), so I am just using the regular 35mm lens which is not as nice.  I feel like I am just back where I started before I got my DSLR!  It is just so time-consuming and annoying (for me, anyways) to take outfit photos outside with my tripod and remote; there are always people around, what to do in inclimate weather, etc.  Mostly it is the time it takes and the carrying around of camera and tripod; I take a tote bag with lunch and sometimes breakfast to work, as well as a gym bag.  And I walk to work.  So to take another set of things, and to leave at least 30 minutes earlier, just does not happen.  And I can't take pics after work because that's when I go to the gym.  You see my predicament.

Anyways, enough complaining!!  I am back and happy to share what I wore to work in August with you guys.  I definitely see some questionable hairstyles up there lol!  My favourite new purchases are definitely those Old Navy Pixie Pants in the first row, and the Banana Republic Factory necklace I'm wearing with it.  Items I am not so enamoured with: those grey Target pants, I think the crotch is a little saggy and they are bit too cropped?  Same with those khaki-coloured Pixie Pants in the last row.  What do you guys think?

Old Navy is continuing to kill it, in my opinion, and I think I have $60 in SuperCash which I am stoked to use, starting Friday.  My sister in law and T both gave me $10 SuperCash coupons from their recent buys there, and I have $40 of my own from purchasing those Pixie's and booties.  When I was in-store a couple of weeks ago I saw a lot of drapey tees and soft, chunky cardigans.  I'd like some navy Pixie's and another black pair, so those are also on the list.  Plaid is going to be hot again this fall so I might snag a flannel button-up early.  I'd love some fall florals as well, we'll see!  I'll do a review for ya once I place my order :)

  1. So nice to see you back! I can't imagine having to take photos with tripod and remote, when I do it - it takes me about 1/2 hour vs. 5 minutes when my hubby takes the pictures. Your pics still looks great!

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you Thursday.

  2. I love your round up of outfits. It would be very hard to take pictures by yourself with a tripod and remote. I can't even imagine. These pics work great though. Its nice being able to see them side by side. Hard to say which is my favorite. I too have the Old Navy pixie pants and love them, they are so comfy and don't wrinkle!!
    Thanks for linking up with us.
