I am having my engagement pictures taken in a park by my house in October, but am struggling to find an outfit to wear… what do you guys think of these 2? My concerns are: 1.) I feel jeans outfit is too casual, but it is really fallesque. 2.) The green outfit isn’t really fall, but green is a really flattering color on me, and I think it will stand out against the background. My fiance is not a fan of either, but honestly, he is never a fan of anything I buy until a month later when he comes around and decideds its cute.
I am going to get a different belt to go with this because this one is too big.

I like the jeans outfit.
Also, I would add a poll.

I like both but I like the second option a little better.

the jeans outfit is adorable. its going to be a fall setting and who said that engagement photos have to be some elaborage, dressy occasion? I’d go with what you think is a better representation of your everyday life… and what’s comfortable! Your photog will probably have you in all sorts of places

I like both! Are you able to do a costume change halfway through? That could also be a good way to add variety to your photos.

The skirt of the dress is rather shapless and thin, I like the top though. If it were me, I’d have it hemmed and wear it as a top.
I love the second outfit, especially the boots and jeans. The sweater looks a little messy, like either it or the shirt below it is too big. I’d roll the sleaves up to the elbow or all the way down, right in the middle looks odd.

I’m with kala_way, I think the second outfit is great, particularly the jeans and boots together (love those boots!). I also really like the red sweater, but if you don’t think it’s dressy enough maybe wear a different shirt underneath? I think the plaid is what makes it look a little more casual, so a solid color dress shirt might make the difference. And also ditto what she said about rolling up the sleeves. 🙂

I love the second outfit! Agreed that the boots are adorable, and I like the plaid with the red sweater – definitely fall-esque and the contrast looks great. If you have to pick one, I’d definitely go with the jeans outfit!

What about adding tights to the first outfit? With a cardigan or blazer it could be very fall!

OK, the jeans outfit is super cute. Well, they both are. I think you should do a wardrobe switch! 😀

Thank you guys for your suggestion. I guess I will definitely keep the jeans outfit. I am typically a very casual person, and a sweater with boots is a fall/winter staple for me. I know it looks pretty sloppy, but that is my fault. I just kind of threw it on to show my fiance. Both the shirt and the sweater definietly needs to be steamed! I am going to mess around with the green dress some more and see what I can do, but I may be returning the dress. Ugh, I don’t know what this is such a hard decision!
