Another awkward OOTD


By the title of this post you can probably excuse my awkward posing and facial expressions in these photos. But after getting so many lovely remarks on my OOTD Debut back in March, I decided to share another! 

The lovely Rosie from A Rose Like This took these photos for me when we spent the day at Panache HQ for our Learn the Fit course. We actually took a lot of photos but these two are the only ones which came out in focus (it was a very cold day, so shaky hands were unavoidable!) We also took some photos of Charl from Ginger Girl Says who has posted a OOTD post too! You can check out her post here

I'm hoping the more OOTD posts I do, the less awkward and embarrassing I will look in photos!

For this outfit I am breaking all the fat-girl rules and wearing a tight-fitting Aztec print and very bright dress from H&M with my Primarni black leggings and New Look biker boots. Nothing fancy, but something bright enough to cheer up a dull, dark and rainy day!


Have any tips for feeling less awkward in OOTD photos? Please share! I'd also love to know what you are doing to change your wardrobes up for Spring! I'm wearing brighter colours, more patterns and more dresses!

  3. Maybe lean against something? like a wall? LMAO or is that too cheesy? Cause then you're doing something so you don't feel like you dont know where to stand. I dunno!
    You look lovely here though :D I really love the T shirt, can you still get hold of it? :) Xx

  5. I'm way too awkward to do OOTD's! But the other day I was joking around and being stupid and letting my friend take pictures, because I was laughing at myself the pictures came out nicer as I was smiling and they were much more natural. So my tip would be trying goofing off! xo

  6. I have never done an OOTD. I'm too conscious. I think you look great though!

    Maybe, if you're feeling awkward, try something a bit less 'serious'. Do something fun or silly like jump or strike a pose. I dunno, just throwing some ideas out there!

  12. Nothing is awkward at this post. ;) You are beautiful but it seems you still don't know it.

    Make photos of yourself. Not 1 or 2 … 1000! Ok, maybe 1000 is a bit to much but you know what I mean (I hope). Look at the pictures, trying not to rate them. I know, this is the difficult part. If you don't feel comfortable that there is a second person which make the photos … use the automatic release. Don't try to be some of these supermodels. Be you. Be crazy if you like. Dance, spring, do anything you want as long as you make pictures at the same time.
    Don't set yourself under the pressure that you must look like a professional model on your first pics (and without photoshop!)

    You are you … and you are beautiful!

    xoxo

  15. Not read the other comments but what i do is take 3/4 for each photo, so 4 full lengths, 4 mid shots, 4 close ups, and then some detail shots (bracelet or necklace or shoes)
    also music can help. And try not too have too much empty space in your photos :)

  20. I Love that h&m dress, tried it on and it's far too short on me :( Should've just bought it to wear as a top, would've been the right length then! Looks lovely on you though! X

    1. Thanks hun, I love it! You should pick it up - It's short on me, just goes past my bum. But with some good, thick leggings it's fine! xo

  21. The dress is amazing! From my experience, you start to feel less awkward in front of the camera with time. I just goof around like a loony and pick the best shots of the bunch. x x

  23. Don't ever stop looking awkward in your photos! It's so endearing and more real, I love it haha.

    Also I had this dress on my wishlist a while back and now I want it even more, gorgeous.

    p.s props for braving the cold of Sheffield in just a t-shirt dress, true blogger dedication!

    I'm around your size and waaaaay too self conscious to pose for an OOTD, but after seeing how fab you look in this I may just give it a bash. :)

  28. That dress is fab! I would love you to do as post dedicated to your tattoos. I'm so nosey when it comes to looking at other peoples body art! Kind of like when you were a kid and you always had to see everyone's charm bracelet, or was that just me?

  30. I bloody love that dress. Totally my type of print.

    So nice to see an OOTD when someone looks normal and not pretentious in how they look.

    You look like such a confident person.
