Im hopeless when it come to putting a cohesive outfit together, does anyone have any ideas of what kind of top to wear for a wintery photoshoot? I am thinking ill wear a cute black pea coat (its on my christmas wish list 🙂 and dark wash jeans…
So that sounds good but i cant seem to decide on shoes- leather booties(about 3 inches high) or my little black moccassins..hopefully one of those are okay :/
And i keep buying sweaters that i think i will like, and they dont seem to be just right… heres the ones i have so far:
i have this in a sangria color
and this one in black:
and for some reason i dont like the back on the top one- it seems wierd to me, and this one feels like it would ride up if we did any cutsie pics…it slide up my shoulders and sits funny on me when i move around.
Please help me bees im hopeless!!

Sorry I can’t see your pics, they’re blocked at work, but I would do a few pics in the coat, with maybe a nice scarf, and then a few pics in a nice big sweater. Maybe something in a thick knit with a cowl neck?
For shoes I would wear the booties or if you have a pair of leather riding boots you can tuck your jeans into.
Good luck! I totally hated picking my e-pic outfit out so I feel your pain!

I love the pea coat idea, and for the other outfit I’d get some skinny dark jeans, knee high boots, and a thick chunky sweater like @Seaside: said. Maybe in a lighter, bright color for some contrast.

I think the booties would be cute! i wore a coat for our winter e-pics and i love the way they turned out. I took my coat off for a few of them and braved the cold. i wore a tank with a cute little cardigan – i wore some heels but they kinda look like moccasins actually

Thanks for the help girls! So the FH and i were out and about tonight doing some last minute christmas shopping and he catches me checking out this really cute pair of knee high brown leather boots. He bought them for me as my Christmas gift (we are having such a crazy holiday season this year so its very unusual the way we are gifting each other)!!!
They are so cute and they kinda remind me of Fry boots, so of course i loved them!!!! So now i need to work on the pea coat and an oversized sweater 🙂
Thanks again bees i really needed some help 🙂

We just did winter engagement pictures! Ours was actually at a mountain, so boots were necessary due to the snow. I did dark wash jeans with some zipper detail on the back (for a litlte bit of modern), brown riding boots, a black peacoat and a really thick brown scarf. Under the peacoat I wore a pea green cashmere sweater, so I took the coat off during the shoot and had just the sweater and brown scarf for a little more color. When we went inside (it was a lodge type place), I wore a grey cable-knit sweater with a cowl neck. I haven’t yet seen the pictures, but I feel like the brighter color for outside and the more muted color for inside might have been a good idea. My fiance wore dark jeans, snow boots, a grey coat, and a light tan colored scarf. While I wore the green sweater he wore a grey one, and when I wore a grey sweater he wore a dark green flannel.
If you’re not going to have any snow arround you, I think moccassins would be really cute. Also, I really wanted some variety in the pictures, which you might be able to really easily achieve by changing mocassins to boots, and by changing scarves for example. I would also say that your setting matters – it could be winter downtown in a city (in which case you might want to dress it up a little) or winter at the ski lodge like we did (in which case big sewaters and flannels make more sense).
