ilene

Lately I've been left to my own devices to get pictures of my outfits. Thanks to the trunk of my car, my tripod, and the timer on my camera, I've been able to manage (more or less). My husband was actually available to take my pictures on Friday. I guess I was so excited that I forgot how to pose normally and my husband had to tell me repeatedly to stop leaning. Spoiler alert. I didn't listen to him. So please ignore the way I lean and instead enjoy the way this sweater pops.

  6. You're so funny. I take the majority of my pics with the timer and a tripod - so when I actually have someone taking my pictures (the hubs, or goodness sakes, the kids!) the pictures always turn out hilarious.
    What's not hilarious is the gorgeous colour of your shirt! I love it. Also - I seriously love that vest on you.

  7. Get it - Ilene?!? You crack me up, and I'm glad you didn't listen to your husband because these pictures make me smile. And I like the layers you have going on here! I would steal this idea, but I don't have any turtlenecks or vests, so it's not copy-able.

  8. Haha I like the leaning pose. Also, I really really like this outfit. Like, really. I know it's freezing outside and you managed to layer like an expert. Also, for a second I thought you said something about taking pictures on the hood of your car... maybe try that next time :)

  9. Hahaha I'm always leaning too! I feel like standing too straight just looks fake! These are still great poses. I don't think I'll ever fully be comfortable in front of the camera.

    I absolutely love this layered look! I need to find me a long sleeve striped tee for this very reason. I haven't found a single one in thrift stores. Grr.

  10. I am very jealous of your light dusting of snow! I feel like ours will never melt down to that point! Your layers are so amazing here. That mint is perfection with your stripes and vest!

  11. You are such a clever layer-er (is that a word?)! I love the turtleneck/sweater/vest combo. The color of the sweater really does pop against the herringbone.

  12. I love that vest! And I know how you feel - my photographer, aka my husband, is not available often so it's hard to get outfit posts in. I haven't tried the tripod thing yet though!

  13. Haha I lean a lot in my photos too! I love this outfit and how you layered this bright sweater over the turtleneck. You are seriously making me consider getting a striped turtleneck!

  14. kate kate kate. i love this so much! the striped turtleneck underneath the bright sweater and that great herringbone vest? ahhh i want to recreate this immediately! and i kept trying to maker sense of your title by singing that "come on ilene" song over and over until i finally figured out what you really meant by the title, haha.

  15. Hahaha. I think the leaning pictures are cute! So my parents own a restaurant that I worked at for a few years and one thing that you aren't allowed to do is lean on the counters while you're working. If someone catches you leaning, they say, "Are you hanging out with Ilene today?" Haha. So cheesy!

  16. IN LOVE with this outfit, Kate! Gosh, I'm the worst at layering! I love how your striped sleeves are peeking out underneath the bright sweater - seriously, I love it so much! Also, the title of this post cracked me up. You're a clever one!!
