We are taking our pictures in Toronto’s High Park with sprig scenery like beautiful Cherry blossoms, pond, tall grasses and bridge. I wanted to have one casual outfit and one dressy outfit. For the casual outfit I was thinking dark jeans and brown leather jacket.
I can’t decide between skinny jeans and boot cut. I don’t normally wear skinny jeans because I am curvy. The skinnies are more trendy and the boot cut are boring but tested and true.
I also can’t decide between flats and heels with either jeans. I think trekking through tall grasses and sod in heels might be a bit of a stretch but the heels would elongate my legs and look sexier. A compromise might be to wear platforms.
I also can’t decide as to the colour of the shirt to wear under the brown leather jacket. I could do cream which is classic, but that seems to be run of the mill.
The dressy outfit will be an a-line dress with a trench. Unless I find a super cute blazer instead. I have solid purple, red, blue and black dresses in my closet. I have a black longer trench which might not show the dress unless opened and a navy blue trench that is much shorter. If I pair the navy trench and red dress, what colour heels should I wear? Alternatively, I could pair the purple dress with the black trench and black platform pumps I already own. But this outfit seems sad for a cherry blossom photo shoot.
The shoot is supposed to be on Sunday :/ Eek!
What do you guys think?

Sory if this post becomes long 🙂
– Agree, dark jeans will look great with your brown leather jacket. Is your leather jacket a light or dark brown? If your jacket is a dark brown then I would stay away from dark color shirts. A brown leather jacket will look nice with white/cream, pink (not dark, light blue, mint green, yellow, light purple and even red.
– Jeans: It really depends which jeans look best with the leather jacket. There are some tops that for some reason look kind of funny with skinny jeans. Try on the jaket with your jeans and see which one you like the best.
– Shoes: Since you will be outside then wear flats. I wore heels with all of my outfits….big mistake, lol! You will be doing a lot of walking so no heels because you might sink into the grass.
– Dress: What color is your trench? If it’s a black trench coat then wear either the purple (if it isn’t too dark, red, or blue dress. You want to wear something bright since your location seems wonderful and picturesque. I think it might be best to wear the red dress with the black trench coat.
Can you post pictures of your outfits?

Pictures Gilry! Let us Vote!
okay… skinny jeans… I love them, but am also a curvy gurl who knows that boot cut are more flattering in pictures… I vote boot.
What colour is your FI wearing? If he is wearing colour I think it would be cute to have a pop of it in the shirt that you are wearing under your jacket. you won’t see much of it, but it would definately tie it together.
Shoes… safety and comfort above all… if you think that you can handle heels trecking through grass and sod and rocks and what not, AND it doesn’t make you look too tall, then by all means go for it… however, in NO CASE should you risk breaking an ankle for these pictures. platforms or flats are the way to go in my mind.

Thanks for theinput ladies.
So the leather jacket is a medium brown. The FI has a dark brown leather jacket to wear. We will both wear lighter colured shirts underneath. The boot cut jeans cover most of the super high heels (which are pink), making me think its not worth the trouble. The skinny jeans show the heels really well but…theyre skinny jeans…
I will post pics tonight hopefully 🙂

It’s funny how much pressure it is took pick the engagement shoot outifts, huh? I think ultimately you should go with what makes you feel the most comfortable. Probably when people look at your photos they won’t be thnking about whether the outfit is trendy/seasonal but whether you look comfortable and happy in it! Good luck and have fun!

Regarding the jeans – if your body is not as well suited to skinny jeans as boot cut, for the love of all that is good, wear the boot cut. Styles come and go, so for a timeless look, go with what flatters you.
