Jealous of Awesome Outfit Posts?

By Jessicavenoy @lovelyjesscuh
Yeah, me too!
That's one down side to living by myself and 40 minutes away from my boyfriend/friends/family - I have no one to take pictures of my cute outfits...sad! I mean I guess I could ask my neighbors, but I feel like that would be a little awkward. Okay, a lot awkward since I know none of my neighbors.
I could always do the mirror pic technique like so:

But that just feels so...MySpace or something. Not my style. I always end up having to turn my head awkwardly to fit it in the picture (see the second and the third pictures). You can't see my shoes unless I cut off my head (see the first picture). And you definitely can't see my accessories.
 Besides living by myself, I'm also lacking in the fancy camera/tripod department. That means I take all of my blog photos guessed it, my iPhone!
So no tripod to take outfit pictures no one to take them for me.
What's a girl to do? . . . Improvise of course :)

These are my "I live by myself, and I don't have a fancy camera/tripod" outfit pictures. Ideally, I'd have beautiful full body shots of my outfits. Shots where I'm standing outside in front a vintage-y brick wall, with just the right amount of sunshine, and maybe even a slight breeze blowing my hair off of my face. But, this is what I have to work with. 
So I'll keep posting my little outfit collages and continue lusting over all of you lovely ladies who are lucky enough to have a special someone living with you to snap pictures of your blog worthy outfits ;)
P.S. I started the Smell the Roses task yesterday & I think this is my favorite one so far! I can't wait to show you guys where all I left little encouraging notes for strangers to find :) I really can't wait for you guys to link up with me on Monday. I made a new button and everything!
P.S.S (or is it P.P.S?) either way, Aimee from Aspire to Inspire was kind enough to feature mine & Adam's story on her blog today :) Go check it out!
