    @adnama:  I like 2 better, but I want some color in your accessories because overall the outfit seems dark/sad. But I think a great necklace or earrings will fix that.

    @adnama:  Yea. I don’t want to send you out to purchase something if you already own something that might work. But I think as long as its not super delicate it will work.

    I think the outfits you chose are fine, but not really for an engagement shoot.  I think you need  somethin bright and fun to go with those gorgeous shoes!  Do you own anything that would be brighter that you could show us?  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would suggest picking a more vibrant colored top. In photos, your dark jeans and dark shirt are going to make it look like they are one piece and make some images look awkward. I think the green cardigan probably does the best to make them look separate. I LOVE the shoes, though!

    Your shoes look happy and springtime-y, so I would wear something happy and colorful, like the cardigan…but not the cardigan, because I don’t like it that much lol.

    Yes – I agree… Those shoes are fantastic and the jeans look great… But a brighter top (in a similar style to your sweater)

    I think the dark shirt by itself will get totally lost in the pictures because it doesn’t contrast with or add texture to the jeans. I like the color pop of the cardigan, but i’m not sure it goes with the shoes (which are adorable!). Do you have a cardigan in any other color that would add some color but go with the shoes better? Could you make a run to Old Navy or the Gap and pick one up?

    I like the brighter cardy-it that the color tank you will wear under?  The necklace is ok, but do you haven anything  brighter/more colorful?  Maybe a brooch for your top or something in your hair?  I am not saying to make a cartoon of yourself, but add fun accessories and color/pattern to evoke a happy mood.

    I like the dusty green cardi or the teal one, and love the necklace, but think maybe underneath, a flowy looking white blouse or tank would look best.

    I wore a white button down in mine, and I loved it in the photo. So crisp looking! I think with the shoes, you would look better with lighter colored jeans and maybe a white or beige/ivory/ecru top. You will look “softer” in light colors and the shoes will pop! I might cuff the pants UNDER (not out, so you don’t see the cuff) right at the top of the shoe. I LOVE fashion!! ๐Ÿ™‚ lol
