Back to Pattern Mixing and Playing with Photo Editing







Tank c/o Style Lately | Jacket: Garment District | Jeans: Lee Jeans | Shoes: TJ Maxx | Scarf: Target | Purse: Rebecca Minkoff | Ring: Nyopoly | Bracelet: Gift from Sense and Sensibility

I’m getting back into pattern mixing with polka dots (of course) and tribal prints.  I can see that this tank from Style Lately will be taking me through the Spring and Summer months.  I LOVE the longer length of it (and you can’t beat that price!) and how flowy it is too!  The cute bracelet I am wearing was given to me by Aime of Sense and Sensibility, it’s delicate but durable at the same time since it’s got double chain reinforcement to hold up against toddler pulling and tugging!

You may notice that I’ve been playing with photo editing a little bit.  A few months ago, I took a Lightroom photo editing class with Pei Ketron.  I think I may have gone a little too light/washed out/blue in these photos but I’d love to get your thoughts.  And if anyone know of any good Lightroom presets or tips/tricks for fashion photography, I’d love to hear them!  I still haven’t really refined the style or look I want to portray in my photos… it takes me FOREVER to make a decision on anything HA!

I’ll be linking up to Because Shanna Said So, The Pleated Poppy, Fashion and Beauty Finds, and Style Elixir with this post!

P.S. Winner of the Albion Fit giveaway is Tiffany Z of Just Another Shopaholic! Congrats girl!  Send me an email to sandyalamode(at)gmail(dot)com with your tank top size and mailing address!

  1. I like what you’ve done with your photos. I love how the colors pop! You’re very brave to mix patterns and it looks great…as for me, I’m not so brave

  2. Love the way you mixed up the prints and colors. Beautiful! Have you checked out Clickin Moms? I have learned so much from them and they have awesome workshops. I took a Lightroom 4 workshop not long ago. :-)

  3. I think you did a great job with the editing! I need to get better with Photoshop. It’s just so complicated compared to Picasa. I love the patterns you mixed – that scarf looks so comfy!

  4. Love how the yellow in the scarf ties-in with the yellow in the shirt. As for LR advice, all I can say is keep playing around with it to nail-down your own style. I’m still trying to do that for myself too.

  5. Your photos look so good – so fun that you got to take a class! I love that tank too – I’m a sucker for a tribal print!

  6. I was about to say that I love the blue tones in these pics! I guess they’re *slightly* washed out but they still look good, girl. And I don’t use Lightroom so I’m no help.

    Love your jacket!
