I’m so tired of trying to put together outfits for our engagement session! We want to do 2 looks: 1 dressy, 1 casual. Our pictures are being taken in 2 locations – the first is in front of an art museum (really classic looking w/white columns) and the second location is a beautiful park in our area which also has a lake.
For the dressy look, I was thinking of this black lace dress w/black heels. Pretty classic I thought but not sure what jewelry to wear. Worried it’s too dressy.
I also tried this on but didn’t buy it. It’s pretty but Idk, I feel like it looks kind of young and I already look young. The color washes me out but I’m going for a tan a few days before.
Here’s what I thought for the casual (with different, better fitting jeans). I’m worried that it’s not casual enough? It’s something I would normally wear though. I thought about removing the jewelry but then it looked plain. AHhhhh
I also tried this coral top but Idk if I like it. And clearly it needs to be ironed.
Or this. But then I would have to wear a different dressy outfit because that’s a lot of black.
As you can see, I’m all over the place. Any opinions would be super helpful! I wish we could put off our session to the fall; I hate summer clothes!!
Also- in both the pink and coral casual options, I have gold flats on but am open to suggestions! I don’t want sandals because I hate my feet!

AdaLee: Take a deep breath and relax. You have a stunning figure and will look great no matter what you wear.
The black dress is not too dressy. The seaming actually takes care of that. The pale pink dress is too wishy washy.
I love the bright pink top and like the coral.I would stay away from black with your jeans. The striped top is not nearly as flattering as the colored tops.

AdaLee: I love the fuschia top, adorable and plenty casual, I think it’ll photograph beautifully. I like the black dress too but it doesn’t look terribly fun. You pretty much have a model’s body so I’m guessing you could pull off any dress under the sun, I bet you could do better. Or if you really want to wear that dress maybe some fun heels instead?

AdaLee: I love the bright pink top and jeans, but not the dresses. I would try a more romantic dress that has some movement for the dressy look. Try not to stress too much–you’ll look great in anything.
My husband and I took our photos at a mission and we just wore one outfit: him in a tux and me in an intricate black ball gown. The photos came out great.

I love the black dress and the bright pink top…the coral is nice too, so I’d say maybe consider what your FI will be wearing and choose between those two?

AdaLee: Black dress, and jeans with bright pink top for sure! The casual outfit has to look casual but still well put together and that outfit with necklace is perfect! Also the black dress is classic you can’t go wrong.

Thanks for your comments!
julies1949: sara_tiara: LegallyBrunetteBee: I think I agree with you on the casual outfit with the bright pink shirt. I guess I just needed more outside thoughts about the outfit. I have no idea what color my fiance should wear that’ll complement the pink shirt! Think he should do a solid or some kind of pattern?
jennmariee: Ham1320: Hmmm, I was kind of going for a classic look with the dressy pictures. I always feel like dresses, particularly flowy dresses, don’t look good on me so that might be why I’m going for the more form fitting look. Definitely thinking about which style dress I should go with now!

I LOVE the coral top on you! I think it looks so good with your skin tone! I would do tighter, dark wash skinnies & nude pumps.
For the dressier outfits, I agree that the pink is too young looking & the black is.. Okay. I think you could do much better! You have a great figure

BCBG has some great black dresses that are reasonably priced. Both of these dresses are classic yet with a romantic feel. You have an amazing figure so both of these would look great on you.

I love the fuschia top, but think it should be with super dark skinnies, nude pumps, and some chunky earrings instead of the necklace. I def wouldn’t do flats.
The black dress is hot! My only suggestion would be to try a different color shoe-any other color, nude, cognac…and I’d also do some earrings and a bracelet 🙂 as PP said, you have a seriously insane figure that will look good in anything!

Okay so Im going to head back out shopping tomorrow or Wednesday. Ill look into getting some nude pumps which is a great idea and I actually don’t own any.
Not sure what direction to go in for the dress. Is the one I have just not interesting enough ? Or is it the fit ? Kind of directing these questions at those who suggested to keep looking. I typically have a hard time finding dresses I like. Thanks again for all of your help!
